Oct 11 2008

In the morning, the one and only Moon in Pisces is moving past trine Mars. By noon, we will be feeling Moon sextile Jupiter (exact by 8pm PST) and sextile Vesta also known as a minor grand trine. In a phrase, inner passion with outer conviction for the morning. The rest of the day is likely to have a congenial flavor, good for sociable activities, meshing well with groups, particularly with familiar faces. On a much longer timescale, we are experiencing a once every 500 years of so configuration that heralded the Renaissance, so if you are noticing a bit of chaos, realize that there will likely be the transmogrification of old structures, with new ideas and ideals. That is the good news. The bad news is that old structures, the establishment, has a history of quashing any new memes in defense of it's limited perception of itself, an "immune system response". Or, analogous to the Butterfly: the worm host attacks it's new imaginal cells because it cannot imagine butterfly, yet butterfly is what it is destined to become, provided there is a sufficiently healthy environment. Besides Gondolier, Painter, Sculptor, or Artist of any kind, new careers useful for the Renaissance would involve creative, unbounded thinking --- activism. There are whole worlds to rediscover that have been right under our noses the whole time.

The Birthcard of the day is the Jack of Clubs, a Uranus implementation of a Venus core. The mythology of Eris may be insightful today.
