Intellectual Mercury’s shift into “cautious” Capricorn tends to make us more pragmatic and utilitarian with our thoughts and ideas, although today may not be the typical poster child for Mercury here in this earth sign as the Winged Messenger forms a trine to “big picture” Jupiter and also a square to “out of the box” Uranus. While we do, overall, want our mental musings to move us forward in a practical, linear manner now, we are also likely waxing very philosophical (Jupiter) today and able to incorporate or at least tolerate more radical or untested elements (Uranus) into our mindset. Accordingly, this is an excellent day to entertain opposing viewpoints, embrace new methods, and explore new options for ourselves. Too, this does not mean that we have to necessarily immediately act upon whatever is revealed to us today. It may really be more of a matter of stretching ourselves and growing cerebrally. Too, Mercury-Uranus tends to be an aspect that quickens or speeds up our mental processes. On the shadow side, it can make us a bit more mentally restless or unstable.
Additionally, the nurturing Cancer Moon is advocating that, along our journey today, we also remember to take time to lovingly administer some self-care to ourselves and also do what we can to fortify our base of operations and familial roots and ties. The emotional Cancer Moon will be reaching its “full phase” early tomorrow morning, meaning that there is more of a crescendoing of sensitivities now.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller
Today’s Affirmation: I am fluid and open to what the world has to offer me today. I also know that it is okay if I do not know all the answers. The more important thing may be to simply ask the questions, to perhaps challenge the status quo.
How could you stretch your perceptions today?
One more thing. Being a big Elvis fan, I would be remiss if I did not mention that “the king” would have been 77 years old today. Astrologically, Elvis, a Capricorn Sun native, had a fascinating horoscope with a grand cardinal cross which often is symbolic of someone who comes along and galvanizes the world in some notable way. Elvis also had the rebel planet, Uranus, exactly conjunct his fifth house of self-expression and talent. Uranus was also in pioneering Aries in his chart, just like it is today. Uranus governs the expression of genius and originality.
“From the time I was a kid, I always knew something was going to happen to me. Didn’t know exactly what.” Elvis Presley
Miss you, Elvis. Enjoy your Sunday!
