Today seems to present us with the preparation for the coming retrograde Mercury period (September 9 – October 2). We are facing the lack of smooth progress with some significant sense of disillusion or disappointment. The need for painstaking attention and careful deliberation is taking a significant toll on our desire for Peace and Harmony. There is a need for broad perspectives but also broad capabilities. No single individual is likely to be capable of addressing every single element that is demanding our attention. The number of distractions is likely to feel overwhelming today. In truth, order is developed out of chaos but the process can seem excruciating when we feel caught in the middle of it with few clues where it may all be leading.
This morning’s first quarter moon in Sagittarius means we might find it difficult to organize our thoughts, and articulating emotions could be next to impossible. This aspect can cause a lot of frustration because we want to connect with others but find it challenging. Misunderstandings are likely to manifest. Try to postpone any important conversations until after this energy clears. If you’re unable to avoid interacting with others, think carefully about what you want to convey before speaking.
Once the moon moves farther into Sagittarius, you might become a bit impatient, but remaining calm will pay off. A minor aspect between the sun and Pluto can be helpful in overcoming any conversational hurdles, but only if you take the time to consider your words before sharing them. This aspect might also come to the rescue if your mind is a bit scattered. Through structure, time constraints and focusing on your responsibilities, you can muscle through any mental fog. Create a to-do list to help you stay on task, and apologize to anyone you have a less than pleasant encounter with.
