With the next Full Moon occurring on Thursday, today and tomorrow become the monthly, 48-hour time-period of preparation for the enlightening spiritual vibrations getting ready to descend from the higher planes of divinity into human consciousness. Thirteen times in every calendar year, this sacred and mostly invisible process takes place — although over the past hundred years, there are now many groups that actively congregate, in a positive manner, to help bring through these exalted vibrations as purely as possible. Providing an early support system for this preparation cycle is this morning’s Mercury-Mars 60-degree contact (12:18AM) followed shortly by a nurturing Venus-Ceres contra-parallel (1:49AM). Nevertheless, both of these aspects occur while the Moon may be laboring in a void uncertainty zone in Aquarius. A more confusing, chaotic situation can develop when Vesta in Virgo makes a fairly rare opposition to Neptune in Pisces (6:35AM). Keep your valuables and assets safe and secure. The Moon’s entry into Pisces (6:59AM) is the monthly reminder to be more compassionate and empathic to the truly needy and disenfranchised. Steer clear of mental fatigue as Pallas forms an off-kilter, 150-degree tie with sometimes loopy Neptune (8:28AM). On the other hand, enhancing your creative imagination and psychic abilities later on fits right into the monthly union of the Moon with Neptune in Pisces (12:39PM). Experiment with a digital or video camera for fun or profit. Make a note or record especially significant dreams and visions that have set your mind ablaze during the last few days. If you are reasonable and careful, you may be able to mix business with some moderate types of pleasure as the Moon trines Venus (8:16PM) and Saturn (9:34PM) — two celestial bodies that are on the verge of uniting in Scorpio tomorrow.
