April 24, 2017 (Julian 114)

Today has a clear cut message: pay attention to details.  Retrograde Mercury tells us that as it trines Retrograde Saturn.  Despite the fact that Saturn is a malefic, this is a favorable aspect most of the time for most people IF you are willing to heed the message and do the work.  Both are in fire signs, so fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are affected most followed by air signs (Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini).  For some people, they will find lost ojects, and this will be an important turn of events.  Everybody, regardless of sign, can benefit by “taking care of business” today.

Outers are relatively quiet again, with   Saturn quincunx Vesta is the loudest voice of the group, and that signals a conflict or misunderstanding between one side that is related to religion, higher education, or law and the other side which is focused on family traditions.  Neither side can “win” here, so walk away from any disputes of the sort.

Clear winners and clear losers emerge today.  Sun opposite Jupiter is usually benevolent, but with retrograde season present and this being part of the Sun(+Uranus)-Jupiter-Pluto T-Square “things” can become “big” and “things” can be “blown out of proportion.”  We may be on the edge of a war, a real “hot” war, and this configuration indicates that is a very real possibility, especially with the Venus (Retrograde in Pisces) / Saturn (Retrograde in Sagittarius) square perfecting tomorrow.  See, also, our commentary from Election Day 2016, particular Part 3 in which I predict that a “hot” war is coming (but not as “hot” with Donald Trump as it would have been with Hillary Clinton).

So, what does this mean for most of us in practical day to day terms?  Superb opportunities can be had today, but be careful not to overindulge (too much food, too much spending, too much booze, or too much of anything else).  Saturn (Retrograde) perfects a triseptile to Vesta, so we have an opportunity from an insight regarding some old karma related to church and faith (or “higher thought” or “foreign affairs” or “higher education”) and family (or oceans! or fluids of some kind if you are a chemist).

With a waxing moon in Virgo, some of us can take on home reorganization projects.  That is a VERY good use of our time and energy today!  Today CAN be a fun day, so point it in that direction.
