Mercury finally scales the walls of Castle Capricorn today. Once over the top, the Messenger enters the futuristic frontier of Aquarius country. Mercury is stronger in these wide spaces. There is plenty of room to plot long trajectories of probability, and think through a variety of futures. For the next few weeks Mercury will be in better condition than for several months, so make your plans and set your plotlines while the Writer is in a good mood.
The day is relatively light and mobile, but night’s descent brings with it a weight. The Moon spends the dark hours in a square with conjoined Saturn and Pluto, reminding us of both personal and world-historical ordeals.
