This artist’s concept shows a celestial body about the size of our moon slamming at great speed into a body the size of Mercury. NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope found evidence that a high-speed collision of this sort occurred a few thousand years ago around a young star, called HD 172555, still in the early stages of planet formation. The star is about 100 light-years from Earth. NASA/ JPL-Caltech {{PD}}

The 29th Is A Good Day To . . . duck and cover–or embrace every shred of pure Power you can get your hands on–there’s no in-between. We’ve been waiting for this re-match with Jupiter and Pluto, and it’s finally here: exaggerating clashes, the forces of destruction working to obliterate the facts, beliefs transcending all dangers and all reason–so really, a day when maniacs, dictators, the unreasonable and the fanatic may prosper all out of proportion, simply out of a conscience-free desire to advance their Will and a willingness to reach out without discretion, while those who value reality, who consider the welfare of the larger social order, who embrace the Power of their own spiritual connection, or who have Faith may seem to be under imminent threat (though special note: those who hold misguided faith are in for an awakening, a devastation of their false god, a repudiation based in fact).

The reality is, though, that formidable as these darker, more power-hungry forces may be, they are equally matched in a contest with Faith in the Universe, with the sheer might of the positive, the optimistic, and the long arc of justice. It’s a time when instinct can serve us well, providing we can sort it from the mind and the emotions (though the emotions, when ‘clear’, can guide and inform the instincts).

Think back to their first meeting in April of this year, view the second surge now, with another perfecting mid-November. Too, review if possible their last pair of meetings, in December 2007 (in Sagittarius) and December 1994 (in Scorpio). There should be some sort of thread discernible, most probably a personal one reflecting larger dissonance in the world but just as easily one that is so very personal that it’s been hidden, kept private, and now is exposed (or re-exposed, at least to us). Often we see the House placement in the natal chart signifying the way the larger social effect manifests at our real-world level, and/ or the subjects where we find upheaval. The effect is one of change, expansion, destruction, applied to the facts and faith of the world as we know it. Brace for impact.

A Good Day To . . . is based on the aspects perfecting on each day, Pacific time.
