We make smart change (Mars nov Pluto)–and that may sound a lot like yesterday, but it’s not; today marks a completely different kind of energy. It’s a flow that combines effort with serendipity, with the more effort made, the more fortuitous the outcomes. The mind is sharp and sure, as thoughts align with beliefs, making for a kind of confidence in our own ideas that’s hard to beat (Mercury parallel Jupiter); in some this might go too far, leading to exaggeration, over-promising, or bragging that leaves everyone disappointed later. We avoid that by keeping attention on what’s healthy (Sun conj Hygeia)–and what’s more healthy than moderation? Enjoy the day, accept synchronicities as appearing for your benefit, and be willing to make the big move or the deep plunge, as the Universe is more than ready to assist you.

Today’s word image is someone who’s always late to a meeting, date, or event. Is that you? No matter who the chronically late person is, we have to ask, What are they holding back, withholding, or otherwise resisting? Being late (trying to control the expenditure of time) is trying to give voice to something the individual may not realize they feel, or that they feel unsafe expressing more directly. Is this an expression of resentment, an attempt to exert some power in what feels to them like an imbalance in the relationship, or is this an outgrowth of general disorganization that allows them to abdicate responsibility for so much. In any case, it’s not something that ‘happens to us’, and needs to be looked at for what that repeated action is really trying to say.
