Although the Sun’s trine to Jupiter culminates today, we may find our confidence waning — especially if our expectations have been too high. With awareness, we can use any sense of uncertainty or inadequacy to offer compassionate support to others. However, we may also find ourselves with some kind of chip on our shoulder, feeling hostile, disappointed or let down. The key is to step back and quickly dispense with overly optimistic expectations. Mars stations to go retrograde today, which significantly slows down our ability to simply take what we want or forcibly create the future. The slowdown will allow us to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually into that future in ways that will eventually produce lasting results. It may help to consider that time takes time.
The moon in Gemini connects with Mercury and the healing asteroid Chiron this morning. Your mind will be sharp and quick, and you’ll have an opportunity to heal through socialization and casual conversation.
However, forgetting to be a good listener could throw a wrench into these healing vibes. Remember that interactions should be about both giving and receiving. Be sure to stick around and listen to people after you’ve spoken your piece.
You’ll also need to be a bit discerning when it comes to your conversational encounters today. Make sure you don’t end up playing the role of therapist for someone who wants to lay all their problems on you and then bails before you have a chance to talk about yours.
The energy lightens up a bit in the afternoon, giving you a chance to mentally engage with the things you find interesting. Do some light research or reading if you’ve got some free time.
