Today we’ll be keeping ourselves busy, mentally active and moving with Mercury in Leo engaged in a trine to
retrograde Eris in Aries, in sesqui-quadrate aspects to retrograde Uranus and retrograde Pallas in Aries and a sextile to Ceres in Gemini. As we’ve come to this point on our journey, we’ve reached a state of mind where we focus on creating winning situations for ourselves and thus concentrate our thoughts on personal success stories, while pushing our individual agenda, intent on setting important changes in motion to initiate the progress we’ve been struggling with so far. Due to new developments and a willingness on our part to remain flexible and adaptable and to look at our ideas or plans from a different angle, we have now a chance to receive support in this regard through new connections or other venues, whereby it is critical that we review our strategies or personal politics, while demonstrating Self-determination and a strong will to succeed with whatever we set our mind to. After the Moon’s ingress to Aquarius at 1:38 pm EDT will we feel inner stirrings and a sense of restlessness, which could keep us emotionally agitated.

In the news: Colombia’s government is seeking peace with the country’s biggest rebel group, the FARC, and could consider also holding talks with a second guerrilla movement to end five decades of war. A successful peace agreement with the rebels would secure Santos, the country’s president, a place in history as the leader who ended a conflict that has killed tens of thousands over the years and left the Andean nation’s reputation in tatters.
