Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 6
The inferior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun occurs this morning, giving us a unique window into the past as it might impact our future. It offers a good time to process recent events and ideas.
At this midway point in the retrograde Mercury cycle, we begin looking at problems or issues from a fresh perspective and a new understanding. Significant new ideas are born at this time and will likely have real staying power or importance in our lives.
What we say or write now has an impact, for better or worse! However, we may not have all the facts necessary to reach a definite conclusion, and we might have to revise plans or decisions later.
The Sun formed a sesquiquadrate with Pluto yesterday, and retrograde Mercury connects with Pluto in the same way today, and we can be particularly curious about — or suspicious of — hidden agendas. We might get to the bottom of a matter, but we may take this too far and miss the point. Watch for stressing out over minor problems or spending too much time on issues of little consequence now.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs today as the Sun in Virgo forms a square to the Moon in Gemini, pointing to a possible crisis of consciousness. We’ve processed recent epiphanies, and we begin to see what works for us–and what doesn’t–in preparation for next week’s New Moon when something new is born again.
It’s not ideal to start a significant project now, but it’s a fine time to finish up details or tie up loose ends. The Moon spends the day in Gemini, and our need for mental stimulation is strong.
