“The attitude which the man in the street unconsciously adopts towards science is capricious and varied. At one moment he scorns the scientist for a highbrow, at another anathematizes him for blasphemously undermining his religion; but at the mention of a name like Edison he falls into a coma of veneration. When he stops to think, he does recognize, however, that the whole atmosphere of the world in which he lives is tinged by science, as is shown most immediately and strikingly by our modern conveniences and material resources. A little deeper thinking shows him that the influence of science goes much farther and colors the entire mental outlook of modern civilised man on the world about him.”

Percy Williams Bridgman, Reflections of a Physicist

We may be able to marshal resources to support new directions and (possibly) new leaders today. However, the afternoon’s void-of-course Moon, from 12:29 PM PDT until 6:06 PM PDT, sets up an emotionally unsettled and restless atmosphere. The Moon’s morning oppositions to Jupiter and Pluto may leave us somewhat stirred up. Nonetheless, awareness is broadened and we will begin to find platforms for important new initiatives, ideas, and agendas, presented in fresh and exciting ways.

Today also brings dramatic developments as the moon moves through Leo. The Leo moon reaches first quarter phase, bringing a change in direction. The energy is ramping up as we move to the Scorpio full moon.

Leo is a fixed fire sign that rules the ego, among other things. Taurus is often considered to be stubborn in nature. But as the moon squares the sun, check-in with yourself about how you truly feel. Drop the ego, the mask, and whatever prevents you from sharing and receiving the love and connection you desire.

Mercury conjoins Uranus tonight, bringing surprising conversations, information, and perhaps a stroke of genius. Follow up on a hunch and keep an open mind. This could be the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.
