daily astrology, decision making, decluttering, Mars sesquidrate Neptune, Mercury stations direct in Scorpio, Moon in Virgo, motivation, reflection
Mercury is finally stationing direct (at 2:11 pm) today, after, what seems, for many of us, to have been an exceptionally long, 3-week retrograde period in intense, crisis-laden Scorpio, the sign of transformation or turning points. Mercury, which governs our thinking or thought processes, communication, and learning, as well as travel and transportation, is going direct at 11 degrees of Scorpio (it will remain in its shadow phase until December 7th).
Too, a note of caution here: even though Mercury is turning direct, we’re still not quite out of the tunnel yet! We really need to give the Winged Messenger, at least a few more days, to get re-oriented again (in its direct motion), before moving forward with our plans, or making any major decisions. Generally, this is because, whenever a planet stations, a symbolic spotlight is put on the functions of that planet, and all that extra attention or fanfare can make it harder for us to get a clearer, or more objective handle, on the things associated with that heavenly body.
So, for example, with intellectual Mercury involved here, it’s possible that our thinking or ideas could be a bit skewed, in some way, now. Or, for instance, we also may have a more difficult time turning off our thoughts today – or possibly we may be overthinking things – especially in obsessive, one-track-minded Scorpio!
Too, turning inward and meditating today – connecting with that well of inner stillness – can be a positive and very good way to ground or balance ourselves now, so we feel more of a sense of inner peace or knowingness, our inner wisdom. Journaling might also be a very good thing to do, as a way of capturing what may have come up for us, during Mercury’s retrograde phase, or all that is coming up for us now, in the way of insights, ideas, messages from the deeper, or more intuitive levels, of our being.
We also have motivator Mars, the planet of assertion (in its first full day in its home turf of Scorpio), involved in a minor aspect (sesquiquadrate) with foggy Neptune in Pisces, which can be, on the shadow side, mildly disorienting, in the sense that it may sort of make us feel that it’s harder for us to act upon (Mars) our dreams (Neptune) effectively now, possibly because the path to realizing them just doesn’t appear all that clear, or really feel right to us (also a sign not to act upon them now!) Another possibility is we could, perhaps, feel immersed in a dream or fantasy that we just don’t want to let go of, for whatever reason. Or, it could be that we also have a nocturnal dream now that is very powerful for us, in some way, on an emotional level, that may also be wise for us to reflect upon, as it could be that this dream is offering us a special kind of guidance for our lives. A lot of times, dreams are important harbingers or indicators of our future.
Too, nurturing Luna is in tinkering Virgo, an earth sign, all day, so becoming involved in tangible activities that allow us to feel purposeful or useful, or that help us to maybe perfect a craft or a skill, can be very supportive or rejuvenating for us now. Included here, we may also want to spend some time tidying or straightening up our households. Sometimes, just organizing/decluttering the space around us can go a long way in making us feel more in control, more in charge, of our personal worlds.
“What I know for sure is that when you declutter – whether it’s on your home, your head, or your heart – it is astounding what will flow into that space that will enrich you, your life, and your family.” Peter Walsh
