Sun conjunct Mercury Rx at 18° Scorpio
For the first time since 2016, Mercury will pass directly in front of the Sun, making the most invisible part of its retrograde journey uncommonly visible. Not happening again until 2032, this transit invites us in to catch a glimpse of its mysteries. Mercury is the traditional ruler of astrology and many wisdom traditions.
But this trickster doesn’t grant access to its goods until the recipients are ready.
Like all self-secret systems, those seeking knowledge only receive it when they are prepared in some way for it. The most important things in life are like this. What’s worthy of respect takes its sweet time.
Today’s astrology primes us to receive little gems of intuitive information that we would normally rush past. Happening a day before the Full Moon in Taurus (and directly across from it), there is a double emphasis on stilling the unnecessary activity of life in order to be open to the deeper meaning of it.
As I wrote in the last set of horoscopes:
“Today, Mercury Rx leads us right into the heart of the matter. Secrets get revealed, hidden masterpieces get discovered, motivations get uncovered. Because this year Mercury’s transit of the sun is visible (appearing as a little black dot that moves over the face of the sun), the magic of what is mysterious is offered up for us to work with. These are more than mere sleight of hand tricks, these are moves that only masters know. Whatever you are learning about working with the more challenging aspects of the human psyche, healing the wounds of your lineage, or working through what generally feels too challenging is helped out. Pay attention to the wisdom you are getting let in on.”
Since this transit is occuring in Scorpio, we know that the lessons are deep ones whose meaning cannot be denied. Scorpio doesn’t do anything halfway. For some this may render the heart a little more tender and the defenses a little more vulnerable to being deconstructed. Go easy with the uncovering. True healing is never done in a rush.
5:34 AM PT – Full Moon at 19° Taurus
Mars in Libra sextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius, both at 25°
There are few Full Moons as well situated as one in Taurus. Here the Moon is famous for its ability to help us slow down and enjoy the finer things in life.
Like sleep. Like rest. Like really good pasta, a freshly made bed, thriving plant babies, and cuddles with your favorite cutie. Anything that reminds us to tend to our physical needs, be in awe of the natural world, and worship at the altar of pleasure is a top priority to pursue under these beams.
But like, in a very relaxed way.
Sextile Neptune in Pisces, and trine Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, this Moon is only interested in making friends that add to its quality of life. There’s no need to rush. Like all opposing signs, Taurus is the antidote to Scorpio (and vice versa). Where Scorpio relentlessly hunts for subterranean truths, Taurus is content to enjoy what is present for what it inherently possesses. Taurus wants to build what is long-lasting, something that Scorpio is too busy shedding skins and ruminating on the inevitability of death to do. Practical, ready to put a date on the calendar, and focused on what it can commit to, Taurus knows that abundance takes consistent effort and comes ready and willing to put the work in. Pleasure loves a persistent seeker of it. This Full Moon is an invitation for us all to still our overactivity and let ourselves focus on what brings us joy in the simplest and most satiating ways.

Today is host to some intensely helpful astrology. As Mercury retrograde finishes up its last week working backwards through the sky, it gets help from Saturn reworking structures and reminds us of the power of our imaginations as it trines Neptune. Meanwhile the Sun goes in deep with a trine to Pluto. Personal power abounds. Call your agent. Send a message to your manager. Send a statement to the world that you are ready to make good on your potential.

The only current astrological challenge, Venus gets tangled up with a bad date. Disorganized and deceptive, today’s astrology might not have us highly focused, but it can remind us that we are always free to leave situations that we know aren’t leading anywhere interesting, let alone aren’t worthy of our time.
Mars enters Scorpio and remains in Scorpio until January 3, 2020
Mars in Scorpio is the private detective of epic proportions. There is no way to derail this set up. Once it’s on the scent of what’s captivated its imagination, it is more than a dog with a bone, it is a master strategist. As it teams up with Mercury, which is about to station direct, we can all use this transit to get down to business and gather the evidence necessary to prove our case.
Mercury stations direct at 11° Scorpio
You can no longer blame Mercury retrograde for your problems. Now direct and flanked by its current and super-powered ruler, Mars, Mercury gets back into fighting shape. Communication issues still have a couple of kinks to work out but no planet in Scorpio ever had an issue with a little consensual role-play. Keep your safe words on the tip of your tongue for the next week or so.
