Mercury stations direct today, reassuming forward motion after spending over three weeks retrograde. Mercury makes this turn tightly conjunct Uranus, and thus the messages emanating the messenger’s station are those of Promethean empowerment, liberation and rebellion. The moon supports the transition through the lense of a supportive trine in the second half of the day.
As evening falls and then deepens, though, Luna’s silver beams shift toward leaden Saturn, whose ambiance is more serious and austere. This move highlights one of the month’s key tasks — the reconciliation of Mercury-Uranus’ cackling brilliance with Saturn’s sober density.
