After tomorrow, the year is officially halfway gone.
I’m sure that this will come as terrific news to a lot of people. Unfortunately, the stars haven’t yet finished what they’ve started. The sun and Mercury make their inferior conjunction today, marking the halfway point of Mercury’s retrograde cycle. Jupiter and Pluto conjoin, too, marking the halfway point of their song and dance through Capricorn. And tomorrow Saturn moves back into Capricorn for a few months.
Because I’m in Canada, tomorrow is a holiday, so it’s a perfect time to sit back and reflect on the year so far; I’ve got nothing else to do. But no matter where you live, take a little time tomorrow to think about where you would like to be in six months from now. 2021 begins on the heels of the grand conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. We’re going to be in a much different place come New Year’s Day.
I’m not advising anyone to dwell on the past, but I am advising everyone to take a minute to consider what would make their lives better. With an eclipse in Capricorn on the horizon, taking off those rose-colored glasses in order to take a closer look at what got us here is going to be more important than ever.
If you keep one eye on the future and one eye on the past right now, your focus will return before you know it . . .
