Sunday’s skies are overwhelmingly pragmatic, as six of the seven visible planets are currently in Earth signs. Exemplifying this concrete orientation is the hardworking trine between Mars in Virgo and Saturn in Capricorn, which is exact today. This is a supportive, though decidedly hard-nosed, configuration, whose essence is the ideal marriage of effort and discipline.
Meanwhile, Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn, a pairing which helps facilitate penetrating, problem-solving focus.
A pleasant contrast to these grindstone trines is the Sun’s exact aspect with buoyant, hopeful Jupiter. This spirit-lifting square reminds us to look up from the details and remember the purpose and goal of our efforts.
