The forecast is for outbreaks of wildly original thoughts, and downloads from the cosmic mind. Mercury (perceiving) is in a sparky and reviving trine to Uranus (awareness upgrade or breakthrough) at 8 degrees Leo-Aries. The inspiration lit today is further supported by the weekend's Sun-Mercury trine.
Mercury is in retrograde in Leo, so be observant to creative and/or unusual ideas that feel energizing. A key word is inspiriting -- what animates the whole self -- and seems to quicken the pace forward. The fiery stimulation of the mind rouses us out of stagnant thinking. It's an atmosphere where great leaps of awareness can happen, that change everything. It's a chance to get unstuck, burn off what's inessential, and get psyched about our own unique creative preoccupations.
- Quotes for Mercury-Uranus trine: (from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin) "One day after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity" -- after all the scientific and technological achievements -- "we shall harness for God the energies of love. And then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."
- (from Albert Einstein) "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence." Albert Einstein
