An activation of our minds comes with today's conjunction of the Sun and Mercury.  Insights, solutions, and revelations come to us.

The Sun and Mercury make a mad dash out of Cancer and into Leo, making conjunction at 3:13 pm ET/7:13 pm UT at 01 Leo and the Sabian symbol of "under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man's head."  We aim for calming our reactions and taking a more objective view. 

Objectivity may be easier to arrive at knowing that Uranus is setting things straight in our lives.  Some of the changes may feel devastating now, but the silver lining will emerge when all of the things that need to be in place have been arranged.  Uranus re-works the field of consciousness so that things are righted.  Uranus will deliver a blow powerful enough to disturb the field enough for change to occur.  Mars will collaborate with Uranus tomorrow, empowering the energy for "righting and realigning."  Returning to balance and sanity is the goal.

All of these dynamics are designed to lift us into new situations and territory that are better for us.  Surrendering to the electrical currents of Uranus, the sustaining life force of the Sun, the heart fires of Mars, the dazzling mind of Mercury, and the guiding beacon of Eris is our aim over the next four days.

To do this, it's important to stay centered and grounded while these energetics blow through.  People, places, and things may get crazy.  This is essentially a wave of energetics that is coming in like a south wind, which can bring out the crazy.  This wind is usually warm (or hot), increasing potential for irritability, impatience, and compulsions.  We amplify acceptance, patience, and clarity.

We stand aside for these stellar dynamics to influence the field and change the nature of our lives and our world.  We fluidly move around obstacles.  We withhold judgment of sudden events, knowing that a second side, a silver lining, will develop.  Magic is happening on the "small island in the South Seas."
