The last week has been filled with many unusual days and a wide variety of powerful alignments. Here is another 24-hour time-span when you need to be on your toes and ready for anything. Healing forces are reinforced as Mercury makes an inspirational, 72-degree contact with Chiron (4:27AM PDT). Additional good news arrives during the monthly Moon-Jupiter union in Taurus (5:36AM PDT). Optimistic vibes are dominant, but this lunar conjunction with the largest planet in the solar system also begins a void uncertainty zone that lasts until 4:06PM PDT. It is during the void time-period that the Sun shifts from earthy Taurus to airy Gemini (8:17AM PDT) while Uranus shocks Mercury via a tense, 45-degree link (3:06PM PDT). Even though the Moon leaves void status at 4:06PM PDT, the New Moon at 1 degree Gemini doesn’t take place until 4:48PM PDT. Then six minutes later, the exact moment of the Annular Solar Eclipse reaches its culmination. This kind of eclipse indicates that a narrow ring of sunlight is visible beyond the dark circle of the Moon because the lunar orb is too close to Earth to fully block out all sunlight. Nevertheless, this eclipse can be as potent and meaningful as a total one. Southern China, Japan, the Northern Pacific Ocean and Western America (mainly Northern California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Western Texas) are in the pathway of this solar-lunar rendezvous. Eclipses were often feared by our ancestors because they didn’t understand the science, math and stellar geometry behind such occurrences. It is best to see today’s event as a super-duper New Moon – where you are being galvanized to take several leaps forward in your main areas of expertise as well as in favorite hobbies. Vesta in a flowing trine of 120-degrees to Pluto (9:15PM PDT) is an extra signal from our cosmic brothers and sisters that you can make a lot of progress in the business and investment realms if you are determined, disciplined and use common sense.
