The AstroEssence: Do our choices and actions become more unsure, confused, as Mars enters Pisces? Maybe, but they may also reflect our highest inspirations, and we are more likely to actively pursue and defend our dreams and goals. The thing is, though, Mercury turns retrograde in semi-square to Mars, so that our thinking becomes fuzzy, or we become unsure of our own reasoning–and so pre-disposes us to the less productive side of Mars, at least initially. Don’t worry–that can mean indulging in daydreams, a marathon of reading or watching movies, indulging in escape of one kind or another, or some other period of necessary incubation, in preparation for taking action, choosing a direction, or asserting one’s choice. As long as we honor those methods, expressions, and modes that support our health, and keep our values supporting the highest good for ourselves and others in mind, we are unlikely to misstep at this point. Special note for the situation of US electors as they vote today: there may be some surprising changes of mind, as the need to mobilize ideals comes forward (I make no guesses as to whom and in what direction these changes of mind may occur!) The biggest surprise for me would be if everyone votes as they’ve already declared they will (Mercury retrograde, Vesta trine Hygeia, Mars enters Pisces, Merc semi-sq Mars)
Today’s word image is a python. Is there something in your world that’s slowly squeezing the life out of you, that you really need to rid yourself of? You may have mixed feelings about letting this thing go, especially if it’s something (or someone!) you love–but your job is to take care of you, and now is the time.
For those born with the Sun at 28 Sagittarius: You have wisdom and practicality on your side–and now it feels like you’re stepping off, into the abyss. For you this may indeed be uncharted territory, but unless you’re landing on another planet this Solar year, through to your next birthday, you will certainly find someone who’s gone before you. Listen to what they have to say, even, or maybe especially, if they are someone who’s nothing like you. Good luck, Sagittarius, and Happy Birthday!
