Jan 19 2010

Moon in Pisces is sextile/trine the north/south node axis, and travels over to conjunct Uranus exact at 10:06 pm PST when she goes Void of Course till mid tomorrow morning. So, in the midst of the continuing Saturn/Pluto square and final days of Mercury stiction days, we have a bit of a respite today. A potential for feeling ok, even shining a bit. 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.
