Cosmic Calendar

Mercury and Venus take turns today being principal planetary players in human affairs.

The ancient Messenger of the Gods begins a positive chain of events as Mercury forms an inspirational, 72-degree liaison with distant Pluto (2:43am) while the Moon in Scorpio makes its monthly union with Mercury (4:24am).

Accentuating communications, correspondence, literary and educational endeavors are essential. Venus is a little less helpful than usual as the traditional planet of love, beauty and romance makes a questionable contra-parallel with feisty Mars (6:41am) followed by another iffy contra-parallel to comet-like Chiron (11:35am). Later on, Venus and Pallas form an off-kilter, 150-degree tie (5:52pm) that doesn’t easily favor problem-solving unless emotional and mental adjustments can be made on a moment’s notice.

Meanwhile, concerns about elders and children in your family circle may surface due to a potent, 135-degree interaction between Ceres and Saturn (8:11am). Listen to your favorite music or improvise with a video camera as the Moon trines vision-enhancing Neptune in water signs (5:16Pm).
