a dash of logic—merc rx sextile saturn—feb. 5th

Lovely-Vintage-Illustration-Clip-Art-055Today Aquarius Mercury Rx is sextiling Sagittarius Saturn at 3º.

This is the second time these two have met while in the Air and Fire signs, but the only time this go round they will aspect while a retrograde is in effect.

To refresh—Saturn is time and discipline, while Mercury is our mind and learning capabilities.

Easy aspects between the pair, such as this sextile, point to innate decision making aptitude.  There is a natural patience available that will forego rash judgments, choosing the logical, steady course instead.

When used to its highest expression, the added influence of Retrograde Mercury signifies thoughts and plans of action of a more internal trajectory. Ideas that begin on the personal level and work their way to the outer world, rather than the environment working on the individual.

It’s more of ‘what can I do today to better things for my future?’ Rather than ‘such and such has happened, now I must adapt to the new stimuli.’

For the next couple, the affairs of your Aquarius sector will have the benifit of steady, rational Earth-tempered Fire.

This can only be seen as a boon.

And if the retrograde still muddies Saturn’s truth for you, these two will meet for a third time on the 19th, sans backward motion.
