And we were doing so well.  Mercury retrograde strikes and today's entire post was lost.  Here are the highlights of what I had written:

VENUS makes conjunction with the Galactic Center today (exact conjunction at 4:34 pm ET/9:34 pm UT) at the degree of "the sculptor's vision is taking form."  What can we create of beauty today?

STRUCTURE and CONTAINMENT are themes with the Sun at "an old adobe mission" and the Earth at "under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man's head."  What needs reinforcement or renewal?  Which foundations needs strengthening? What needs to be put away?

UNIFICATION of things that have gone separate ways occurs with Mars located at "a fellowship supper reunites old comrades."  Resonance is strongly at work to bring like-minded people together.  Socializing is underscored.

A CLEARING of those things that are not structured or contained comes with Mercury at the degree of "a girl surreptitiously bathing in the nude."  Generalized feelings of vulnerability or exposure accompany this energy, which gives us insight into anything that might be limiting us.  This energetic wants us to be unencumbered and will push us into new arenas.  We are cleansed in many ways when this symbol/energy  is in effect.

Today is a day of beauty, for sure, so what can we do to bring beauty into form?  Kindness goes a long way.  Unconditional acceptance does, too.  Recognizing, renewing and rededicating ourselves to our blessings honors them.  Let's create beauty, in big ways and small, as the "hidden choir" of the Galactic Center takes our visions and helps us bring them into form.
