The Sun will move from the degree of the "golden haired goddess of opportunity" energetic at 1:27 pm ET/6:27 pm UT, ending the drama and theatre that comes with it, but not the window of opportunity. At that time, the Earth picks up the theme as it begins to discharge the energetic of "newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience."
The predominant theme today is BREAKING AWAY AND CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES.
By definition, pioneers are moving into new circumstances. Other planets are facilitating this today, coming, literally, from different angles:
VENUS is discharging "a woman entering a convent." This involves a feeling of wanting to detach, escape or recluse from pressure, disappointment, disenchantment, or disenfranchisement. There are usually aspects of society or life that normally are tolerable, but seem less so with this energetic. We desire to "leave" or "escape" what is uncomfortable.
JUPITER completes discharge of "a retired sea captain watches ships entering and leaving the harbor." We tend to look back, review, and judge when this energetic is in effect. What we see may contribute to the feeling of wanting to escape or retreat ("retire"). Expansion of our ability to understand lessons and see patterns also comes with this. We see which circumstances need to change.
THE SUN leaves the "golden haired goddess" energetic, but keeps the light going as it discharges "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple." As we are navigating the pioneering energetics of breaking away or changing circumstances, we want to look at other sides or from another's perspective. Though the primary theme today is one of breaking away, this symbol tells us to make sure we remain "in body" and not too dissociated. The symbol tells us to pay attention to our bodies and take good care of them. It speaks to linking the body, mind, and soul.
MERCURY discharges "a fat boy mowing the lawn," reinforcing the notion of reconnecting with the physical body. This symbol speaks to making effort to change something (not necessarily related to the physical body). Is something too reliant on appearances? Does something need to be tidied up?
MARS completes discharge of "a watchdog standing guard, protecting his master and his possessions" as JUPITER moves to the degree of "two men placed under arrest" and the EARTH completes discharge of "an airplane performing a nosedive." Control issues come with these energetics. They involve the protection of others. Sabotage and self sabotage can easily arise.
We want to navigate all of this today by remembering today's directives of PIONEERING and CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES. How is all that these planets are producing showing you how to break away from or break into something else? How are they showing you what needs to be changed?
There is much wisdom for us today. Let us attend to it as the Sun lights up our temples!
