How’s Merc Retch treating everyone?
More than one person on my FB has lamented about broken computers and broken cars.
Ah, well, hopefully they have seen the last of the high jinks and no one else falls prey to Retrograde tricks.
Friday is a BUSY day and is a main precursor to next Tuesday’s Leo Full Moon.
So, let’s see what’s what.
Today will be packed with culminating energies, including the aforementioned Winged Messenger himself. He and the Aquarius Sun will conjunct at 10º. They have not been intertwined since October, when they joined in the Cardinal Air sign, Libra.
The difference this go round, in Aquarius, is the agenda will be one of running that mouth with little filter (something Libra provided the last time).
Yep, with the ego (Sun) coupled with the mind (Mercury) in an Fixed AIR sign (get it?) there is a tendency to have strong opinions and not be shy tellin’ everybody about it.
If this is a trait you lack on a general level—you get to be a motor mouth for the weekend!! If not, you’ll probably need to do many in your circle the favor of STFU and listen instead—that is your challenge. Hopefully, Mercury Rx will help with the latter.
Next up, lovely Pisces Venus is squaring Sagittarius Saturn at the 3º.
This will most likely cause us to be extra self-conscious of how we look, physically, even down to the ear rings we choose for the evening. Our interactions will prove super awkward and clumsy and leave us feeling heavily unworthy.
Mind you, these are emotions not necessarily based in reality.
The saving grace here is, if we are able to recognize the above tendencies, we can about-face and use Piscean compassion and Sagittarian truth to give ourselves a break.
Relax and refuse to be so hard on yourself!
(Another route this may take is in our intimate relationships. If a lack of love is poisoning the coupling, Venus/Saturn will scream it’s presence. Maybe it is a time to speak up OR shut-up and listen! Keep reading to see how Mars/Pluto/Chiron can help.)
Lastly, Pisces Mars tangos with 14º Pluto and 15º Chiron in a sextile and conjunction, respectively.
The God of War in easy aspect with the God of the Underworld portends to immense determination and stamina.
All those loose ends you are trying to get sorted under this month’s Mercury Retrograde are gonna get the added drive of Mars/Pluto this weekend!
Then tomorrow, dear Mars moves into exact conjunction with the Maverick. This brings deep healing to actions and initiatives. Purging the old and unhealthy to make room for the fresh and revitalized.
For example, I started cleaning out my herbal tincture closet, yesterday. (I say ‘closet’, it is actually the crawl space under the stairwell in the old farmhouse—hello, Pluto!) I haven’t had the time or energy to attempt this for the SIX YEARS they have been waiting. Now is the time!!
Alright folks, this is what we’ve got to work with—have at it!
Remember, we have been feeling these energies all week, they are simply at their strongest today.
Hold tight, it all fades quickly.
