Three major events are happening in the skies today to switch up the energies:
10:19 am ET/2:19 pm UT: Mercury conjuncts Venus at 28 Leo and the energy of "many little birds on the limb of a large tree." This energetic brings dizzying communications, information, and options. With Mercury, planet that rules mental processes and the processing of information, this could lead to some headaches, literally. Things may be all over the place. It is overall good, though, because what develops today is important. This combination brings all kinds of messages, synchronicities, and signs.
3:21 pm ET/7:21 pm UT: Jupiter moves to the last degree of Leo and the energy of the familiar "an unsealed letter." Venus disseminated this degree (July 16-18) before it went retrograde. Many things started to come to light in our lives and in the world at that time. Jupiter will only expand this, bringing more truth to light. Jupiter will discharge this frequency of energy until August 11 during the Balsamic Moon phase. Balsamic Moon phase "loads in" and "leads in" to the New Moon, so everything that has been cracking into the light since July 16 is being amplified and will continue to unfold during the entire next lunar month. Jupiter is mighty and its effects expand in waves.
11:19 pm ET/3:19 am UT: The Black Moon moves to the 29th degree of Virgo and the energy of "a man gaining secret knowledge from an ancient scroll he is reading." The Black Moon has almost completed its transit (journey) through Virgo and now begins to offer the wisdom that begins to come from the completion of something. This energy is all about wisdom that is ancient - wisdom that is in our souls. If we attend, wisdom will be revealed. Magic abounds and the mysteries return with this and will be in effect until August 15. (This means it will be in place at the New Moon and thus will continue to play out throughout the next lunar month.)
Within this whirling dervish of a day, we aim for contentment, peace, kinship, and the illumination of wisdom.
