Some sort of "cosmic reward" comes our way today, with the archetypal imagery of golden-haired goddesses of opportunity, pots of gold at the ends of rainbows, verdant lawns blooming with clover, and lit candles.

Furthering the theme for this lunar month, "three masters hanging in a special room in an art gallery," the "Masters of Light" are "in the studio" today, working hard to paint us a masterpiece.  They want to display things to us.  Here is an interpretation of the art:

1 - LIKE-MINDED AND TEAMS - Group or collective needs are favored over individual needs today.  Teamwork, cooperation, and collaboration are highlighted.  The Sun is discharging the energetic of "neighbors help in a house-raising party in a small village."  This energetic brings people of like mind, people who are in "resonance," together.  This includes new people, as well as those with whom we are already acquainted.  We may become aware of things we did not know about people, particularly their interests, talents, hobbies, or dreams.  Like-minded values are inherent here and brought together.

2 - EXPANDING YOUR VISION - The Earth is discharging "steps up to a lawn blooming with clover" today, inviting us to step up with something and envision its success.  When we expand our perception or our "field of consciousness," we accept that there is an unknown.  The unknown is the place from which potential emerges.  We do not want to take anything "off of the table" today.  In fact, the notion of "no restrictions" should guide us.

And, most importantly, this energetic tells us to stay the course.

3- THE LURE - The Goddess of Love, Venus, brings us "a theatrical representation of the golden-haired goddess of opportunity."  All things drama and propaganda are on full display.  What is reality and what is theatre?  This energetic brings things that seem too good to be true, but actually the things are often true.  Impulsivity is higher when this energetic is in effect; slowing down and taking time to consider, contemplate, or meditate is advised.

Overall, the Goddess has something to show us today.

4 - WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT YESTERDAY? - Today Mercury reaches the degree that the Sun was discharging yesterday: "a broken bottle and spilled perfume."  What was revealed for you?  Mercury rules our thoughts, thought processes, and communication.  Things certainly feel like they are breaking loose in the world (or maybe also in your world).  With this energetic, what is transpiring is happening so that the true nature or essence or content of things is revealed.  It happens as a result of a break, accident, or fall.  We could make a good case for how this dynamic is playing out right now.  Mercury will make conjunction with the Sun on Thursday and will take these things to another level.  (Geophysical effects are ahead with the conjunction.)

5- AROUND 5:30 pm ET/9:30 pm UT, the Moon will oppose Neptune and conjunct the North Node at "two heads looking out and beyond the shadows."  We remember that this was the Sabian symbol for the Virgo New Moon, September 1 - 29, 2016.  Things that developed or were undertaken during that month may reappear in some way today.  This energetic helps us see through darkness, deception, or anything that is in shadow (separated from light/truth/love).  Objectivity and a balanced perspective ("two heads") enables us to see beyond and rise above.

6- AT 8:00 pm ET/midnight UT, the Sun will move to 04 Scorpio, activating the Chiron Point via opposition as it does one day each year.  So....we know what that means, don't we, wise owls?  The Chiron Point is the trigger for wounding, healing, and learning.  Wisdom is often birthed in wounding.  Chiron energy is painful -- the most painful in life, astrologically speaking -- but it always brings us a reward.  Chiron rules the hero's and the heroine's journey. 

The Sabian symbol for the Chiron Point is "a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow."  This is where the Earth is located today.  The Sun is opposite, at "a youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual."  Light a candle and state (or restate) your aspirations, wishes, and intentions.  The light of consciousness is at hand to lead, guide, and direct us.  Healing is being directed at sadness, depression, anger, heartbreak, or places where we feel victimized or abandoned.  For the healing to happen, the wound must surface to be cleaned, and this is often painful.  But it is worth it and purposeful in the long run - the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. 

We have the blessing of unseen assistance and delivery of divine messages as Mars discharges "a hidden choir singing during a religious service."  We want to pay close attention for signs, synchronicities, repeats, patterns, background conversation or noise, and of course animal sightings (express delivery of messages from Spirit).

We remember that the "music of the spheres" continues to play as golden opportunities are finding their way to us today.
