The change in the way we’re communicating is a mind-meld between east and west, right brain and left, feminine and masculine. Helping us see things differently is Neptune, who’s dreamy fog has been blown away by Serious Saturn. Neptune crosses all boundaries and easily blends them--like rivers running together at the mouth of the sea. Then clairvoyance is not one river “reading” another, it’s the effortlessness of being the ocean.
The Force of inspiration is with you.

P. S. Tuck yourself in tonight with assurances that your life goals are about to get a serious assist. Mercury ends a two month journey through Sagittarius at 10:34 pm, and puts on cleats for a short 20-day climb up Capricorn’s mountain. He immediately strikes gold! Stay tuned.

Panning for gold this Saturday, January 7, 2012:

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Your firm grip on your feelings helps you start the day making sober and consciously realistic choices. You have agreement between your desire to save the world and your need to save your own self. You set priorities that honor both. Right after lunch your mood subtly shifts to thoughts of home. The Moon moves into Cancer and you find you’re very tuned-in to the moods of those around you. So much so, that their feelings rub off on you. Good time to “do turtle” and pull inside for some rest and recuperation.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You feel a strong sense of being at the center of what holds your life together, like the healthy backbone holds the skeleton’s structure. This secure feeling is very enlivening to your spirit. Around 1:00 pm the mood shifts to thoughts of home and comforts of being nurtured. Curl up with your afghan and give yourself a time-out to do a check-in with your dreams. No harm if this leads to a nap!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A little alone time this morning to assess the way you’re feeling will pay off. You’re in touch with your self and your priorities. You have oodles of patience and tolerance, even if things don’t go your way. The Moon’s journey through Gemini, ending around 1:00 p.m., has given you a clear idea of where you are headed. The afternoon’s Cancer Moon turns your thoughts to home and your ancestral roots.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Your ability to organize your thoughts is spot on. Finding inspiring ideas for your project will be easy, and may come to you in dreams, during meditation, or while communing with nature. After 1:00 pm the Moon moves into your sign where she is happily at home. The Moon loves to be in Cancer as much as you’ll love being in your home this afternoon. Love of your family and the roots you’ve established will comfort you.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
You may surprise yourself with how traditional your beliefs are today. Actually, you’re calling up the values that have worked for you in the past, and anchor you in the present. Still, the artist in you is wide awake and inspiring the most beautiful of dreams. Take advantage of Messenger Mercury’s last day in a fire sign to solidify the plans you’ve started under his tutelage. By early afternoon your mood shifts into thoughts of home and heritage, as you naturally pull into yourself for a little contemplation.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You’re able to put ego aside for the sake of the common good, either in your family or your community. You want practical sense and sensibility type answers now. Your mood gets some comforting support by early afternoon when the Moon shifts signs. Moon in Cancer is a harmonious companion for you, but requires some emotional boundaries. Imagine a hula hoop around your waist, and decide to assign everything outside your hoop as someone else’s problem. Your job is just to manage your own space. Whew, that’s easier.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You get an artists’ wake-up call this morning when practical Saturn offers to help you put form to your ideas. You’ll feel like working very hard to actualize your dreams. The Moon and mood shifts in early afternoon to a quieter, even withdrawn, inclination. Knowing that you have a tendency today to be a chameleon, can help you draw some lines in the sand. Keep the inspirational ideas from Mercury’s journey through Sagittarius alive. Put your goals on a storyboard. Tomorrow’s Mercury will bring the tools of ambition that will make it all work.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The morning hours are rather dreamy and a good time to take a yoga class or meditate. Your empathy and compassion for others is broadened. You can use active imagination to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. Imagine what their life is like. In the early afternoon the Moon shifts to your harmonic water sign, Cancer, and you feel energized, inquisitive, and alert. It gets even better for you this evening when Messenger Mercury moves into Capricorn (stay tuned tomorrow). You are in-sync!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
The dreamer and the realist inside you are sitting on the same side of the table today. You have easy access to your creativity, as well as the ability to utilize your rational mind to put order to it. This is the gift all artists hope for. A way to get the creative idea into practical form. Make use of this last day of Mental Mercury in Sagittarius. Tomorrow he’ll be in Capricorn, a slower pace for you but with a burst of ambition.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Spending some time on the mountain top will produce great rewards because you are very in touch with your feelings, and you’re grounded as well. Meditation and prayer will feel especially powerful today. By early afternoon the mood shifts into homebody Cancer and you realize how important it is that you feel secure in your surroundings. Things are going to pick up for you considerably now as Mental Mercury moves into your sign tonight at 10:34 p.m. All the rumblings and mumblings in your head are going to become very clear. It’ll be forward gear for you!

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
If you can snap yourself out of a daydream, you can put your creativity to some practical use. This is a very beneficial time for artists (that’s you!). By early afternoon the Moon moves into Cancer and your mood shifts. Your emotional responses become colored by memories of home, of your mother or of being a mother. Which means you get serious about all that junk you’re totting around in the physical world, and you want to lighten your load in favor of traveling more easily--including your inner world.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Dreams and visions find practical expression and take artistic form with just a little concentration on your part--which will be easy for your today. Great day to meditate, commune with nature. You’ll feel especially good, a general sense of well being, after 1:00 pm when the Moon moves to Cancer. More that any other sign, the Moon in Cancer adds depth to feelings and intensity to your emotions. Familiar surroundings are just right for you now. Some childhood memories float by, and you appreciate how strongly you value home and hearth.
