Today we have Mercury (mind) harmonizing in a sextile to Pluto (transformation), and since Mercury is in Scorpio where it easily focuses our attention directly to what is important, the engagement with Pluto’s intensity simply amplifies this power without causing too much difficulty. But Venus, also in Scorpio, is opposite Uranus in Taurus today. In Scorpio Venus demands nothing less than truth, a connection with meaning and passion. No matter where Venus is in your own chart, our connections with others are of supreme importance right now, and all of our values (Venus) are infused with the fiery emotion that Scorpio brings to the table. Meanwhile Uranus seeks the radical departure from ingrained habits which keep us stuck, and Venus opposing Uranus today can bring some conflict between that which keeps us connected and safe (Venus) and the need to break free and do something radical (Uranus).
These are fast-moving transits and will last only a day or two. The Moon has just entered Taurus and we are seeking more comfort and more ease, but it will pass over Uranus in the early part of the day (Eastern time, please adjust for your time zone) which potentially can cause some internal disruption that may spill over into our interactions with others. Today is a good day to try something new, perhaps something small, but interesting enough to break up any stuck energies.
