Oct 1 2009

Moon in Pisces starts out the day inconjunct The Sun, then meanders over to opposite Venus and inconjunct Vesta, exact at 8:08 pm PDT. See yesterday's post about the other heavenly bodies. Another colorful description of the current clusters would be ping pong, what the pattern looks like, and possibly how events are playing out, back and forth. So besides the usual somewhat heavy stuff interspersed with opportunities, today may well have a bit of the "look at me" vibe in the air, starting out with the ego a bit unsure and possibly overcompensating, then at least resolving some of the dilemma later in the day. Feelings and/or perception of beauty in the evening, with or without traditional/family approval. Beware of materialism however, shiny things more often distract from than enhance the deeper feelings.

Semantics and nomenclature: the language is full of implications that may or may not be true, such as "influences", and this blog is not innocent of such slips of the tongue. Really, the heavenly bodies probably have no more influence on Earthly affairs than a clock on the wall (or on one's wrist) influences the flow of time. More likely, they correlate with such events. It is quite likely we live in a synchronistic Universe. It is possible that the belief in cause/effect is an artifact, or illusion of limited perspective. Stick around, let's find out. So, no matter what wording is used, the intent here is to imply correlation between events, with the patterns in the sky being a grand mirror to our experience, hopefully illuminating the interconnectedness of all things.
