“To change ourselves effectively, we first have to change our perceptions.” Stephen R. Covey
Intellectual Mercury (retrograde) conjuncts the Sun in “innovative” Aquarius, an aspect that can help us to shift or adjust our perspectives. Sort of like looking through a kaleidoscope and rotating the angle of the lens, we are more receptive, maybe even eager, to sampling different points of view, or taking in new information. The Moon’s entrance into “analytical, logical” Virgo (2:58 am EST) also adds some positive foundational glue here. Virgo is one of two signs ruled by the planet Mercury (the other is Gemini).
“A misleading perception or false belief is increasingly being perpetuated that the unconscious or the intuitive is all that really matters in any spiritual endeavor, and that the conscious, rational, logical, analytical mind is the mortal enemy of spiritual awareness and soul growth.” Anthon St. Maarten
Of course, with Mercury retrograde, it’s possible that we may later change our mind about something that we decide today, but instead of recoiling at this possibility (a draining perspective), why not celebrate the fact that we have the power to choose our illustrious thoughts in the first place? Such a wonderful option that many of us take for granted.
