The focus of today is the conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter, which occurs right next to the Tail of the Dragon.
Mercury and Jupiter is a sagely combination which unites the big picture and the actionable details. In Capricorn, it inspires practical contemplations. Being right next to the Dragon’s Tail, pull toward what can and should be let go of. Although it is certainly architectural, what is mapped here is less a pattern of construction and more a blueprint for absence. The teacher that speakers here is a sculptor, which cuts away at the stone to liberate the form trapped within.
Late night, Mars abandons Scorpio for Sagittarius. In the Archer’s sign, Mars rushes forward in pursuit of ideals, beliefs, and grand works. The goal, which resides just over the horizon, provides the bull’s eye and center of gravity. A vision of accomplishment hangs in the sky here, like an aurora borealis. This celebratory banner, though, tends to maintain its position on the horizon, never growing closer, for it is the image of ideal realized— a metaphysical contradiction. Yet its appearance is necessary, and powerful, for this burning vision provides the heat necessary for action. Mars will be in Sagittarius until February 16th.
