What develops today? It could be very interesting.
Today's energetics follow these themes:
1- IMPORTANT THINGS POINTED OUT - The Sun is discharging the energetic of "a moving finger points to significant passages in a book." Things that we may have missed, overlooked, not understood, underestimated, or undervalued are shown to us. The key element here is that things are shown TO us, as in by something or someone else. You may be the one to point something out. A Divine Hand is at work, so we follow our hearts (which are also our minds, because the two share the same types of cells - neural cells - and are ALWAYS interconnected. The agenda to disconnect them or make us believe that they are not connected is failing.).
2- STAGES AND PROCESSES - As things are pointed out today, we see how things are being re-worked under the massive retrograde factor of several of the planets. When planets are retrograde, they re-work things. We see how things take time to develop or go through various processes before they are finished or resolved. We see that the best foundations are laid when we allow the time for the processes of development. Mercury retrograde is re-working things the fastest right now, and this will be in effect until May 22.
3- CHOICES or DECISIONS - The Earth is discharging the energetic of "obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders." In general, this symbol involves a change-up of the status quo. We may feels at odds with "the rules" or an old way/perspective/belief. This energetic aligns with integrity and higher callings. Consider the consequences if you find yourself as the soldier in this image today. Do what you feel is right. Be true to thy self. Express yourself with dignity.
4-OPPORTUNITIES AND POSSIBILITIES CONTINUE - The Sun-Mercury re-conjunction has a few degrees in the sky being activated and re-activated in quick succession right now. Mercury retrograde discharges the energetic that the Sun activated last Sunday (May 8): "a new continent rises out of the ocean." It's epic, and the times are certainly so. Many people are under the false assumption that things can't develop properly or beneficially when Mercury is retrograde. However, new things (opportunities, options, alternatives, directions, etc.) often cross our paths during Merc retro. In order to re-work things, sometimes something new needs to be introduced. It may be fleeting, but it will serve the purpose of making things better.
The Moon will oppose Pluto between 1:51 and 7:00 pm ET/5:51 and 11:00 pm UT. During this time, anything from the four themes above could dramatically stand out for us. The aspect involves 1) freedom from something that has blocked, bound, or controlled us, 2) nurturance of beginnings or new developments, and 3) the desire for satisfaction.
We ride on the adventure that is our lives today, seeing what develops. What all could the day hold?
