Feb 22 2009

Mercury is joining the Jupiter/Juno/Mars conjunction, technically a stellium now, adding a bit of expression or expressive flair to the home/relation meme. With Vesta square and Venus sextile, this is quite a combo, Home on the Range meets Vicki Christina Barcelona. Hopefully set to the music of the latter. This time with feeeeling: Our friend the Moon in Aquarius will be enhancing the experience, lighting this up today---conjunct Mercury exact at 1:33 pm PST, conjunct Jupiter exact at 4:33 pm PST, square Vesta exact at 7:50 pm PST, conjunct Juno exact at 8:43 pm PST, conjunct Mars exact at 10:48 pm PST. When Moon transits a cluster such as this, the individual flavors are less obvious, except when the transit also happens to nail someting on your natal/birth chart---rather like a good pot of soup which is more than just the individual ingredients---although one will recognise individual parts within the combo, in context with the combo. Hungry for life yet? With it's myriad of nuances combining in new ways to make yet new nuances? Me too. This is a good day for it.

The Birthcard today is the 3 of Diamonds, a Mercury expression of a Uranus core, with a 6 of Hearts inside and a Queen of Diamonds outside. 3Ds include John Belushi, Neil Diamond, Oral (!) Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Edward Kennedy, Fred Rogers, Rick Moranis, and Pierce Brosnan.
