Shakespeare was onto these gals. ‘The Three Weird Sisters’, Mezzotint By Henry Fuseli http://wellcomeimages.org CC BY 4.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=36658923

It’s a weird day, in the ancient sense of uncanny, unusual, or even in the way it can suggest meeting one’s destiny. The word itself springs from Old English, weorþan ‘to become’, and German, ‘werden’, the latter still in modern use. We see it in the way our empowerment may be brought forward through our own creative or imaginative powers, how we may be deluded about what constitutes our own effectiveness or privilege, or in the way we dream our way toward adequate Self-expression, as Juno enters Pisces. At the same time, we see the unusual, the heretical, the revolutionary, the accident and the shocking (Uranus) acted upon by the swift and small Venus (nov) and Mercury (contra-parallel and semi-sq), which flood relationship feeling, financial matters, values, thought, and communications with sudden events and revelation. This pulls our attention to all that’s wrong in our pursuit of ambition and desire fulfillment and in the current power picture (Sun sesq Zeus and semi-sq Pluto). We may vow to right it all–and yet, we can’t account for the influence of the weird, and the way it can make us ‘become’, before we even know it.

Today’s word image is a powerful telescope, fixed on one section of the night sky. We currently have the ability to see and concentrate on a single area of life very intensely, to understand, interpret, and shape it in ways far beyond our usual reach. Find that part of your life where you hold the most powerful sway, and make it whatever you want (please note: this isn’t necessarily the part of your life you most want to change, but the one where you hold all the power and influence).
