Mercury moves briskly through the final degrees of Sagittarius today, all the while engaged in a dialog with Uranus, the Great Awakener. Uranus is currently standing still in the last degrees of Aries, preparing to move forward into Taurus. He will leave Aries on March 6th, not to return for 84 years.

What house does Aries occupy in your chart? Uranus entered Aries in Spring of 2011 and spent seven years waking you up regarding that area of your life. For example, if Aries occupies your seventh house of relationships, likely you’ve had some big realizations or shake-ups around important partnerships in your life.

Today Mercury is interviewing Uranus about what went on over the last seven years. Your mind is open to insight, to seeing things in a new light. You may receive some cosmic downloads, some exciting news, or a big aha to close out this era.

At the same time, the Sun is chatting with Neptune, enhancing our intuitive and psychic abilities. Meditation and dreamwork can help you absorb any flashes of understanding.

Midday, the waning balsamic Moon travels for a brief time with Mercury, joining in the conversation with Uranus, helping you to process emotionally and to let go of whatever needs to go. Then the mood shifts as the Moon enters Capricorn at 1:55 PM EST. She tangles with fiery Mars in Aries in the early evening, setting us up for a night best spent in productive solo activities.

And finally, ending a busy astrological day, Mercury finishes up with Uranus and follows the Moon into Capricorn at 10:40 PM EST. Here Mercury can help you get your thinking in order and to set goals to put in motion at the Capricorn New Moon tomorrow.
