I hope you are enjoying today's Mercury trine Uranus. This is a good time to open up to new ideas and contacts. These two planets are the lower intellectual octaves, and the Sun is conjunct their higher octave, Makemake, at 9 degrees Libra.
So in these days, we are coming to a more full understanding of who we are and what we're doing. And when we know where we are coming from, we can seize the opportunity to reach out into our network and enable meaningful engagement.
The Sun and Makemake are also opposite Salacia at 9 degrees Aries today. Salacia is about finding the right time for our initiatives, and being able to take the leap of faith required when that time comes. I'm just loving Salacia, she's our new course this year, and I've been developing the course materials and getting to know her.
Salacia brings us to those moments were we can see the change we are destined to be. And, if we have the faith in our heart that it is the right move, this gives us the courage to leap into each transformative commitment. We can do this because we know in our heart it is right for us and the outcome is what we want.
Salacia encourages in us a deep sensitivity and a genuine love of life and humanity, and she enables us to weather the real and psychic storms in our lives. So if our bigger understanding is coming through challenging experiences in these days, this opposition should be able to give us some psychic protection.
Salacia is appealing, and she's all about intimate relationships and bringing true love into our lives at the top level. So our bigger understanding may also be coming through these intimate connections, or we could be drawing these connections to us through our appealing nature, or the appealing nature of our work.
As we develop spiritually, she enables us to remove the barriers to happiness in our lives, and we learn to approach life with an easy sense of humour and wit that helps us get through difficult times. Humour enables us to let go of shadow by being light hearted. We learn not to take ourselves or others so seriously and this lightness enables a tension release which both protects us and assists our growth.
And at the spiritually evolved level, she brings a sensitivity that can open us to psychic perceptions. So we might find that we are picking up information on a psychic level in these days, which enables us to build a better model of our world and more clearly understand our lives.
As we develop spiritually, she makes us want to be better than we would otherwise be, and she can bring religious awakenings. At this level she gives us the self-awareness to work with the unseen and take the leaps-of-faith required in our growth.
Salacia 101 is starting in a couple of weeks, and will run on Friday's in North America and Europe, and Saturday morning in Australia and New Zealand. All the scholarships were snapped up on this course at the beginning of the year, but I have extended the Earlybird price for those who want to join many of our graduates and current students on this exciting new course.

Love and laughter
I absolutely loved the class! As a first time student of astrology, I can honestly say that aside from Alan (a wonderful teacher and guide), every one of the students in the class was a teacher for me. I learned so much and can’t wait for the next class to begin. - Mary Anne Pitt, USA
