So, Mercury is now direct!! Neptune is now retrograde; Saturn is hovering at the zero degree. Jupiter and Uranus are still givin’ the good vibes from their fiery thrones and the Sun and Mars are of one mind in Gemini.
That’s the weekend in a nutshell, folks.
Luna will spend today and tomorrow in Taurus—slow and steady and oh, so sensual—interacting with Neptune and Chiron in Pisces and Venus in Leo. All nice for a relaxing weekend. She will then move to Gemini on Sunday, conjuncting Mercury and opposing Saturn as he regresses into Scorpio that night—gearing up mentally for the work week ahead.
The Sun overtakes Mars at 23° Gemini on Sunday, as well—beginning a new cycle for our Warrior.
In one way or another, everything mentioned leads back to the intellectualism of Gemini.
Ideas, ideas, ideas. Retracing to inject cheerful wit and bold genius.
Each of the above incidents has its own particular nuance of “truth”—whether parsing the rules and punishments of bending it or choosing to uphold your own personal idea of it over career, to a life time career’s worth of quality.
As you can probably deduce from the title of this post, Sagittarius rules journalism. Saturn in this sign speaks to these occurences. (Not the actual tragic deaths of Simon and Carr, of course, but the subsequent void their passing leaves among the field.)
My spidey sense goes off anytime I hear a succession of events that so perfectly illustrates the transit of an outer planet. I find it simultaneously reassuring and creepy that these things happen all in such a in your face, public way.
With the freedom of speech Charlie Hebdo killings and now the past week in American news, is it not completely apparent that Sagittarius is a Fire sign?
Quick is not fast enough. Yesterday is 3 days too late!
Saturn has some work to do—get the f’ outta the way!
