retrograde aligns with the Sun today, bringing illumination to our thoughts.
This is a good time for processing recent events and ideas, and for beginning to
look at problems or issues from a new perspective and with a new understanding.
Significant new ideas can be birthed at this time, and these are likely to have
real staying power or importance in our lives. What we say or write now has
impact, for better or for worse. Mercury biquintile Pluto suggests stronger
problem solving abilities and the chance to get to the bottom of a matter. Our
ability to hone in on meanings is increased now. However, we're also likely to
experience some temporary waning of enthusiasm, letdown, or feeling of
discontent as Venus and the Sun approach hard aspects with Neptune, exact
tomorrow morning. This is a time for checking in with our dreams, wishes, hopes,
and spiritual needs that may have been overlooked recently.
Note: Read the
sections for both your Sun Sign and Ascendant for a better
picture of what lies ahead for the day. For example, if you are
an Aries with a Leo Ascendant, read the forecast for both
Aries and Leo.
A New Sign? There is a lot of talk about a "new sign", Ophiuchus, and how
this might shift Sun signs to encompass different dates. We are receiving many
emails about whether or not we will be updating the site with the new dates and
new "sign". At Cafe Astrology, we use the Tropical Zodiac, which is not
constellation-based so that axial precession and the discovery of a new
constellation does not affect the zodiac signs, just as it hasn't been an issue
in the past (axial precession is by no means a new phenomena). Your sign
remains the same.
