Today we have the final alignment between Mercury and Saturn, with Mercury virtually stationary after turning direct on the 3rd. With many many planets retrograde throughout the year we have been on pause, thanks to Covid-19 and other factors. After November 13th when Mars turns direct the world will begin to move forward once again. Under the strong square between Mercury (mental facility and information processing) and Saturn (discipline and order), we are being forced to be patient as we wait for results. Results of the election, results of Covid-19, results of intentions that we planted earlier in the year. With Mars still retrograde it is difficult to get anything off the ground right now, much less moving forward but with Mercury no longer retrograde this will begin to change.
Today the Moon, still in Cancer where we are all more sensitive and reactive, opposes Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn all in Capricorn. This influence will be felt for much of the day until the Moon enters Leo at 2:18 am on the 7th EST (use this handy converter for your time zone). We may feel frustrated with restrictions (Moon opposite Jupiter), intensely passionate about everything (opposite Pluto) and then later in the day perhaps feeling a bit negative or hopeless (Moon opposite Saturn). Lunar aspects are fleeting, lasting usually only a few hours, but they can trigger deeper emotional reactions making this a good day to find a way to bring a little joy into your life.
