Anyone feeling a little dreamy, not quite able to say what you mean, or maybe more tuned in than usual to the poetic nature of words and the feelings behind what is being said? All these are reflected by the current Mercury trine Neptune aspect and builds on yesterdays influences that started to show as Mercury moved into Cancer. This is another important influence in helping us understand the mood of these times as Neptune has featured prominently in the last few New Moons while Mercury, ruler of the signs Mars has been retrograde in (Virgo) and Venus is now retrograde in (Gemini) has now moved into the Moon’s sign (Cancer). As Mercury is messenger of the gods he will be picking up those Neptune/New Moon vibrations over the next couple of days.
For me this looks like a good time to focus on the spiritual or mystical side of things (Neptune), really feeling (Moon) the thoughts and ideas that arise (Mercury) – listening to music, reading poetry or books that inspire, singing. It’s a day to make some time just to stop and stare, allow your heart to expand as you hear something beautiful, to really ‘get’ the meaning of W H Davies’ words when he says:
WHAT is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?—
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
