Pony Party, Looking Up

According to this Yahoo!News story

…for those living in the Northern Hemisphere, a great “window of opportunity” for viewing Mercury in the evening sky is about to open up.

Tomorrow night, April 23, Mercury will be visible to the naked eye within 30 minutes after the sun sets, and should be the brightest object in the sky that night.

By April 30, Mercury will be setting as late as 85 minutes after the Sun. That evening, binoculars may show the Pleiades star cluster 4 degrees directly above it. (Your clenched fist held at arm’s length measures about 10 degrees in width.)

More information on the planet Mercury is available at this site…or, of course, at Wikipedia..

Mercury was named for the Roman god of commerce, travel, and thievery…whose Greek counterpart, Hermes, was the messenger of the gods.  It was probably so named due to the speed at which it appears to travel when viewed from Earth and its proximity to the sun.  In astrology, it is designated as the planet which influences communication, ideas, the media, travellers, and consultants.  It is the planet of silver tongues and trickery 😉  

Besides being super-excited to see Mercury again, I’m also focused and determined to use the energy of her ‘exposure’ to bring about more exposure of silver-tongued tricksters (media included!)…I wont get too confusing here about how she’s also moving into Gemini, the sign she rules, or the upcoming retrograde….i’ll only say that the heavens say that the upcoming months are a good time to bring scandals to the fore 😉  

As above, so below…
