“A man’s mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
Intellectual Mercury (governing our reasoning abilities, logic, and communication) enters “progressive” Aquarius today (at 1:31 pm), the sign of its exaltation. Hopefully, this bodes well for our humble mental faculties, in the weeks ahead. Mercury in Aquarius (a sign associated with equality, change, and innovation) is synonymous with a strong desire for learning and knowledge, embracing new ideas, pondering more abstract matters or things of a more technical nature. In communication with others now, we’re also possibly more at home in the Devil’s Advocate role. Mercury will remain in Aquarius until February 3rd; however, due to an upcoming retrograde cycle, Mercury will also re-enter Aquarius, the first half of March, for a period of a few days.
The waning Moon is also in “harmony-seeking” Libra, all day. It’s also having a lopsided meet up with “ambiguous” Neptune in “master-of-disguise” Pisces, early this afternoon (Moon quinqunx Neptune at 2:36 pm), so it may be a little challenging for us to know how to get a firm grip on what’s really going on around us now. Kind of a like we’re a guest or participant at a lavish Masquerade Ball.

Numerology For January 16: As we move into the second half of January, we’re sort of at a natural reflection point now, perhaps wanting to assess the impact, to date, of many of our ambitious “power moves” that we have so far undertaken during the first two weeks of a brand new year. The number 16 (which reduces down to the number 7) suggests that it’s time now for temporarily copping a more philosophical or spiritual orientation to our affairs. The number 7 archetypally represents “The Mystic.”

Hope it’s a good one!
