Instead of listing what’s going on in the Universe today, it might be easier to list what isn’t! Your busy cosmic day starts with power player Mars pairing up with money guru Taurus, putting your financial situation in the spotlight and encouraging you to go after long-term investments and opportunities.
Your thinking becomes more emotional when mental Mercury pairs up with sensitive water sign Cancer, and it will be hard to keep from tearing up at the slightest things. Nostalgic memories have you driving by your childhood home or calling up an ex, and touching moments have you reaching for the tissues. There’s also a Mercury-Mars sextile late in the day that enhances your social skills and has you using your charm to get exactly what you want.
Crafty asteroid Pallas enters versatile Gemini today as well and encourages you to pursue a new hobby of some type. Arts and crafts are in the spotlight now, so why not try sketching, painting, knitting, origami, scrapbooking or something else? Stretching your right brain is what this creative partnership is all about.

45 | Parrot Spirit | Watch your words.
What are you saying to yourself? What message are you repeating? Is it something that makes you feel good about yourself and reminds you of your strengths and potential?
Parrots mimic the sounds around them, and when Parrot Spirit appears, it is time to be more mindful of your self-talk and its qualities. What do you say to others? Are you repeating what you truly believe?
Remembering to speak with light and love can become a habit. Be generous with compliments and thanks, affirming all that is good so that your loving, healing words will be heard throughout the jungle, cutting through the noise and inspiring others.
Listen for the words that remind you of all the strength, abundance, and joy in your life and in the world around you, and then repeat them, affirming what is real, true, and nurturing to the soul.
The universe will reflect back to you the story you tell. Words matter, so choose ones that lift you up and inspire others to remember that beauty surrounds us.
