Today we may be tempted to eschew or give a thumbs down, to any small, medium, or even what could be described as normal-sized large gestures or overtures in favor of going with or holding out for the “whopper” or “jumbo” options instead (you know, part of the whole “bigger is better” philosophy). While Sun square Jupiter (9:34 am) can positively give us a gargantuan shot of self-confidence or enthusiasm, the downside to it is that it can often find us overestimating our rave abilities or getting immersed in activities that end up requiring more energy than they’re worth.
Another lovely, dubious shadow side to the often “over the top” Sun-Jupiter energy is that it can sometimes bring out our irresistible self-righteousness (or virtue-signaling side), which can then, no doubt, quickly descend into experiencing various awkward, random, complicated moments of holy finger-pointing, which can then lead to smelly toe-pointing, and then eventually morphing into engaging in cringe-worthy, highly suspect “paint-by-number” charades. And that’s likely just the beginning!
We also may have another precarious Cinderella glass slipper dropping into the fathomless, bottomless, oceanic depths with the (“please-like-me”) pretty Libra Sun quincunx to psychedelic hippie Neptune Retrograde, occurring in the sign of fishy, self-flagellating Pisces (11:31 am). We can’t detail all the scandalous, risque ramifications that could possibly come about from this little cosmic quickie, but suffice it to say, the map of directions regarding the fastest, surefire way to arrive at sacred Nirvana (or the scenario in which the magic slipper fits the fairy tale princess’s foot) is likely to become very soggy or waterlogged now. So please tread and chant “OM” very carefully now! 🙂 Challenging Sun-Neptune aspects often make things appear other than they are and sometimes what is being masked or covered up is much stranger than first thought or ever could have been imagined.

On This Day in History: On October 11, 1939, Albert Einstein informs FDR of the possibilities of an atomic bomb.
Astrologically, that day, communicator Mercury had just entered the life and death sign of Scorpio, at zero degrees (Scorpio rules bombs). Expansive Jupiter, retrograde in “warrior” Aries the ram was also exactly trine to transformative Pluto, Scorpio’s modern-day ruler. Jupiter-Pluto aspects are often associated with being able to wield or generate tremendous power and influence. Pluto was also in the ostenstatious, larger than life sign of Leo the Lion.
Birthdays today: Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (and FDR’s wife), who was born on Oct. 11, 1884 (d. 1962). Cardi B. also is turning 28 today.
