Mercury trines Chiron - Emotional Watershed

"Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again"

We begin this week with a potent, emotional watershed as Mercury trines Chiron, which is stationing direct in Pisces. Optimism, trust, and clarity begin to emerge under the waxing Moon following last Thursday's New Moon (11:20 PM PDT 15° Sagittarius). Mercury arrives back in Sagittarius by Wednesday, which increases the momentum of generous optimism, as it heads towards a conjunction with Jupiter. We become more interested in taking in the big picture — the 'Grand Vision' — and avoiding the 'Rabbit Holes' of confusing details that were challenging us while Mercury retrograded back through the early degrees of Sagittarius last month. However, we may begin to recognize that our journey of the the last two months has provided us with important experiences that are helping us to ground our optimism in practical, accessible experience. Certainly, we are still likely to run into some confusing situations under the strong Sagittarius/Pisces squares which offer few tangible guideposts of clarity. Nonetheless, our overall approach seems to be more productively geared towards keeping our focus on the Big Picture and staying out of the weeds and details that would disturb our enjoyment of the broader view that we can enjoy this week. Venus remains in the shadow of her retrograde period (October 5th - November 1th), which points to the continuing need to build (and rebuild) strong connections with those around us within a new and more durable framework. This week's optimism helps to facilitate this process in strikingly productive and lasting ways.

Sunday's watershed of productive communication starts the week off as Mercury trines Chiron in a trusting and compassionate atmosphere. There is a bit of pressure to cope with on Monday if we become concerned about showing tangible accomplishments rather than simply making meaningful connections and establishing honest dialog. Tuesday is a good day to stay connected with those in our home circle — take a well-day! Mercury makes a triumphant return to Sagittarius on Wednesday, encouraging us to maintain a broad, philosophical perspective. Creativity is grounded by tangible, accessible experience on Thursday. We can enjoy a deepening sense of camaraderie within the optimistic, philosophical atmosphere. We reach the First Quarter, building phase of the lunar cycle. Intuition is especially important when we begin to recognize a few 'flies in the ointment' of our big-picture-optimism. The Moon is VOC much of the day on Saturday and playfulness could get out of hand in the surprisingly sensitive environment.
