As mentioned at the end of yesterday's calendar entry, the Sun and Jupiter are vying for supremacy during their off-kilter, 150-degree encounter (12:28AM PST). The Sun can never go retrograde from the Earth's vantage point, but Jupiter -- like all the other major planets and asteroids -- can appear to go into reverse each year and does so for 3 to 4 months at a time. Jupiter went retrograde in Gemini on October 4, 2012 and won't return to forward motion until January 30, 2013. Since Jupiter is the largest planet, it has much to do with large-scale professional plans and big business ventures. Trying to push these kinds of activities ahead right now may be foolish because these two biggest celestial bodies in our solar system are at odds with each other. In addition, the Moon in Cancer is back in one of its lengthy void sessions and won't step out of that characteristic until 11:46PM PST tonight. In the meantime, tensions may be afflicting the communication and transportation realms as Mercury squares Pallas (7:27AM PST). Snafus and mix-ups can increase mental tensions. Nevertheless, if you want to try and tweak this Mercury-Pallas interaction in order to be a savvy problem-solver, you have several hours within which to reveal your versatile skills. Welcome the end of the void lunar cycle in Cancer (11:46PM PST) as the Moon enters heart-centered Leo -- the Moon's zodiacal placement through the start of the New Year.
