Y’all probably know that I was a felony criminal defense lawyer for thirty years, who specialized in forensics and death penalty defense, and then I moved on to become a law professor teaching Criminal Procedure, Wrongful Convictions, and Trial Advocacy, among other subjects. Even though I have a strong background in science and firmly believe in the scientific method and the scientific tradition, I am a professional astrologer. Yup. Don’t ask me why it works; it just does, and I have studied and used the ancient art to good effect throughout my life. I make no apology for my interest, so if you hate astrology, please scroll on by.
If you’re interested . . .
Jupiter (at 27 degrees and 3 minutes in Pisces) is beginning to separate from an exact conjunction with Uranus (at 27 degrees and 2 minutes in Pisces) and both are trined almost exactly by Venus (at 27 degrees 5 minutes in Scorpio). This powerful astrological influence means that we will be feeling an intense need for excitement in relationship and more creative, optimistic, energetic, and enthusiastic about our spiritual search for truth than we have in quite some time. So, metaphorically speaking, grab your boards, paddle on out through the surf, and ride the big ones.
Mercury (at 21 degrees 31 minutes in Sagittarius) is approaching an exact square to Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces, so you might want to keep your computer or pen and paper handy today to keep track of what your brain is doing because new ideas regarding spirituality, travel, higher education, and your search for knowledge will be popping up faster than you can keep track of them. Beware of making promises that you can’t keep, despite good intentions. Don’t take your computer with you, if you go surfing, however.
You will likely feel like you’re making a fresh start emotionally as the New Moon (16 degrees 5 minutes in Capricorn), which symbolizes your emotional self, is separating from the Sun (13 degrees 53 minutes in Capricorn), which is your source of creative energy. The only potential problem is that you may have trouble choosing in which direction to go, as the ideas and possibilities are likely to seem somewhat overwhelming. Fortunately, however, the Moon and Sun tend to be grounded and practical in Capricorn.
From what I read yesterday, Margaret, our fellow firepup here at the Lake, is already out surfing the big waves of ideas. So, let’s get our butts in gear and join her.
This will be a good day for new ideas and new beginnings and the only danger of which you need to be aware is taking on more responsibilities than you are capable of handling.
Go for it!
