Today tests your strong independent streak versus a longing for connection. Mercury enters Scorpio and probes at your spontaneous nature. It could even make you want to rebel against authority.
A fated magnetism amplifies the overall feeling of predestined attraction as both Mars and Mercury are now in mutual reception and giving strength to each other. It’s almost like you’ve been here and done this before. It can feel like you’re moving through several moments of déjà vu that can be an ethereal development out of time and space. It’s like you’re floating through the cosmos and the Universe has some gifts for you when you’re ready to reach out and take them. Who knew it could be this easy?
With so many crazy things happening in the world, someone or something out there has an awesome surprise in store for you! This is an opportunity to take a step toward your wild side. If you feel a call to action and don’t know where it will end up, let these current transits take you to a more aligned state of being.
Finances and career could be a big part of why you’re taking matters into your own hands, even if you’re feeling pressure from family and friends to stay on the course they’d prefer. Remember, when there are connections to the North Node, that’s the time to strike even if others don’t understand.
Perceptions may be skewed. The optimistic Moon argues with communicative Mars inciting irritable tempers and rash decisions. We’re able to gain steady footing once the Moon moves into serious Capricorn, but this doesn’t last long. Balanced Mercury pokes expansive Jupiter, leading us to exaggerate our stories or make wild estimations that aren’t based in reality. Finally, Mercury moves into intense Scorpio and encourages deep conversations, but also invites potentially obsessive behavior. Jumping to conclusions can easily land us in hot water.
Do something that has been calling to your soul.

DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
58 | Stag spirit | Take the lead.
Others may not be as far along as you are on your journey. When Stag Spirit appears in the protection position, you are called to be compassionate and patient as you find yourself leading the way.
When others struggle to follow you, they may be unsure that you can be trusted, challenging you to be kind and strong, challenging your value and questioning your worth. Know that Spirit has put you in this place at this time for a purpose and will not abandon you when you need help with your new responsibilities.
Or perhaps you are actually uncomfortable leading, maybe temporarily trapped by your small self, and are therefore promoting yourself too strongly, afraid that others might see weakness or imperfection in you.
Let go of your fears, and let Stag Spirit remind you that you have what it takes to lead wisely and ethically if you practice self-honesty and listen to others who wish to support you.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
The Hermit depicts an old man standing alone at the peak of the mountain while holding a lantern in one of his hands and a staff in the other. The mountain denotes accomplishment, development, and success. The hermit tarot card refers to the level of spiritual knowledge that he attained and that he is ready to impart that knowledge to everyone. There is also a deep commitment he has to his goal and a solid awareness of the path that he is taking. Inside the lantern, you will notice a star with 6 points which is also known as the Seal of Solomon. This symbol represents wisdom. The staff that he holds depicts authority and power.
The Hermit is a seeker of the knowledge that comes from within. A lonely wanderer in the path of the night, he searches for that which can only be gained with long periods of solitude – the inner voice. To hear it, he must disconnect from the crowds whose voices and desires threaten to overcome his own. He walks through the dark night of his unconscious, guided only by the low light of the northern star, with his destination being his home, his self.
He walks through the dark night of his unconscious, guided only by the low light of the northern star, with his destination being his home, his self.
You are currently contemplating that you need to be alone. Never be afraid to take this chance to reflect, as it could help you clear your mind of all the clutter that comes with everyday life. The Hermit may also refer to your effort in taking action that is authentic and aligned with your true self. You are perhaps searching your inner soul for guidance on what is right, and where your next steps are to be.
The hermit’s appearance in a reading can also denote the appearance of someone who will come into your life and who will be your mentor.
