We can now celebrate that MERCURY is direct!
We are ready to move forward and take action on the things that have not been moving smoothly. It will be better now.
Communications, timing, and electronics will stop messing with everything we are trying to get done!
We should feel a release of frustration on many levels.
However, we may not notice that ease-up much as we have some heavy hitters in action today.
I also must tell you that this is not a one day issue, these energies have been with us for a few days, building to today and will ease up over the next few days.
Mars is the planet we want easy quick access to if we find ourselves in a dark ally being approached by unfriendly hoodlums!
Pluto is the planet that offers deep empowerment when a complete transformation of our life circumstances is demanded of us.
Today these two join forces beginning a new cycle with the theme that these two powerful bodies bring together. 
The images that come to mind are harsh indeed: the fight for survival, rage that is deeply buried. Yes, there is fear and yet the courage to face that fear head on!
Think back to December of 2010. What has transpired in our lives regarding these issues at that time that we have been working on since then? Where have we faced issues of rage, courage, death, and/or transformation in the past two years?
Have we been able to transform an inner rage through facing death or another deeply hidden personal struggle?
We are beginning a new cycle, new circumstances, same issues. We have the opportunity to work with them again, perhaps handling things better this time. Always searching to improve our management of ourselves and our world.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield but to my own strength.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom.
Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; but let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.

(Rabindranath Tagore, Fruit-Gathering)
