Mercury turns direct this morning, ruling the Gemini Moon as it squares Neptune. The Moon-Neptune square is disruptive to attempts at clear communication and produces uncomfortable feelings of emotional vulnerability. Maintaining balance and self-control is extremely important as we struggle to maintain connections with those around us. The illusion of duality — Us versus Them — is blinding. Today requires that we turn the corner towards a deeper understanding of our true interconnectedness. The grinding and polishing effect of the Moon’s quincunxes to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn this evening precede tomorrow’s early morning trine to Mercury (5:48 AM PST) — easing some of the extreme feelings of vulnerability. The slowing of Mars (turning direct on November 14th) increases the sense that we lack individual self-determination. However, Mars, as Spiritual Warrior, is serving to enlighten us to the nature of true connectedness and the illusions of duality and separation.
Today kicks up plenty of conversations all around as Mercury moves direct through Libra. The continuing effects of the waning gibbous moon in Gemini trine to Venus in airy Libra adds to the vibe of connectivity. There’s an emphasis on expression and legal situations.
There is clarity within certain parties, but someone or something is trying to play with your recollections, especially because of the Gemini moon experiencing a quick and healing sextile to Chiron retrograde in Aries yesterday. Try hard to write things down if you’re afraid you will forget certain information.
You might even feel overwhelmed with the amount of chatter going on in your various circles and communities. Pay careful attention to what is happening in the news, especially because this playful energy can take on a sarcastic and dark tone with the sun’s presence in the emotional sign of Scorpio. There is hidden information here that needs to be uncovered. It might not be today, but it will come out with the bathwater very soon, that’s for sure.
Mercury in Libra wants to be extremely fair, even with a square to Saturn in Capricorn who just wants to be right. There might be a strong element of ego being pushed forward in the media, especially as Saturn in Capricorn also aspects the north node in talkative Gemini.
