Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a girls basketball team" (unifying)
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres" (the complete re-tuning or re-calibrating of consciousness)
At 10:50 am ET/2:50 pm UT, the Sun and Mercury will be in exact conjunction (meet at the same place in the sky). Mercury is currently moving retrograde (backward), which causes the ways we think about and communicate to change. We come to startling revelations about outgrown beliefs about ourselves and the world.
We also happen to still be in the Full Moon phase of this lunar cycle, which is the time of the month when we have full light for revelation - full light by which to see.
But with the Sun's conjunction with Mercury today, we have the most light of all. The Sun empowers or "charges" whatever energetic comes into contact with it. The Sabian symbol for the degree of the conjunction gives us the inside scoop on the nature of the electro-magnetic dynamic being supercharged. The Sun and Mercury make conjunction at the Sabian symbol of "a blazing fireplace in a deserted home."
Mercury is The Messenger, so the home is not deserted (or not in the same state as it was before everyone left) because Mercury has left us a message there. This message has to do with:
NEW METHODS OF THOUGHT AND ACTION - Issues or problems that have surfaced (particularly since September 17) find resolution through the integration of elements that were separated or cordoned off. Mercury retrograde re-works the way we think about and approach things - our mindset. This results in things coming together or back together in new ways. This change in thinking is also what causes "revolutions of evolutions" - leaps of consciousness are made.
RESOLTUION OR RELIEF WITHIN RELATIONSHIPS- Situations and conditions that developed (or finally surfaced) in relationships on July 7-8, July 19-23, and August 10-11 are at the last stage of transformation. These are things that Venus' retrograde over the summer brought into action, particularly changes in relationships. The Sabian symbol with this today is "a large camel crossing a vast and forbidding desert." It may have been quite a tough journey, but it is coming to its end. The path will be clear by Thursday, October 8. (Venus will once again reach the degree where it stationed retrograde, setting the re-working of relationships in effect.)
Note the repeat of the word desert in "a blazing fireplace in a deserted home" and "a large camel crossing a vast and forbidding desert." It may seem or feel like we've been deserted in the wastelands of a desert. But wisdom tells us that what is tired and dry and forbidden is being blown away like...
A WOMAN'S HAT WITH STREAMERS BLOWN BY THE EAST WIND - The Earth is located at the degree of this Sabian symbol today. Generally this is a softer breeze, but it always brings the new - the dawn - because it is the East. This helps us release or bring relief to the past. Any part of it can blow away with the wind. New space for new experience is then created. Deep breaths certainly help with this energetic.
SHIFTS IN THE BALANCES OF POWER - This may be quite noticeable today, and includes balances of power within interpersonal relationships and the world at large. The geopolitical chessboard is changing, and ultimately it realigns with goodness because this is our true nature. That which has depth triumphs over that which is merely superficial today.
But, as we "come home" and read all of the "messages" Mercury has left for us today, we do so next to a blazing fireplace lit by the power of the Sun. We remember that even when we leave "the house" there is always something there that sustains us. To get there, we need only to turn our mind's eye inside to the fires of the heart.
What is there, revealing itself to you today?
