I always pick three Tarot Cards the first thing when I wake up in the morning to get the temperature of what the day might be. The first card was the Lovers, how appropriate for Valentine's Day, followed by the Hanged Man, then the 8 of Cups. This suggests a reversal of some kind in the choices that I make, and it will force me to take things deeper on an emotional and feeling level. Not a bad combination of cards. It's wiser to make mature choices of the heart rather than immature ones that merely grant immediate satisfaction.
The Moon is in deep, passionate Scorpio today. The 8 of Cups reflects this energy. The mood is about intensification, deepening, passion, trust and taking love deeper. Whomever you come face to face with today look behind the mask and superficial appearances and experiences and search for the emotional substance of the connection you have with that person. The day is predominantly colored by a trine to Mercury. Make the emotional and mental connection and use compassionate communication to get your message across as Mercury is in Pisces, ready to turn retrograde. There is a caveat as everything may have a way of turning around on the retrograde that occurs Sunday. Those beautiful heartfelt messages and words that you transmit to your loved ones today may have a change of heart after the retrograde, or at the very least need to be adjusted in some way.
Tonight's energy is colored by Jupiter and Neptune. All fantasy, imagination, glamour, sex and extreme indulgence. That being said, most likely what the Mercury retrograde occurring over the weekend may indicate is a serious internal question about over the top and indulgent behavior from tonight and by Sunday a reappraisal asking "what the hell did I say and do?" You may go back on your word if there are promises made tonight in the heat of passion that can't be kept. It may be hard to stay true to your commitment when Mercury turns retrograde so be aware of how you play the game tonight.
