This week sees an abundance of activity among three of the worker bees—Mercury, Venus and Mars (the Sun and Moon take center stage at next week’s lunation, of course).
Lots to talk about.
First, the good news—
Yesterday, Venus and Mercury came into exact conjunction at 11º Aquarius.
They remain conjunct today while forming a sextile with Aries Uranus. Tomorrow, the 14th, the pair will semi-sextile Capricorn Pluto and Pisces Chiron while trining the Libran North Node.
When the Messenger God and Aphrodite conjoin, the atmosphere is active and pleasant. Our mind is working well with our social graces and when in Aquarius—humanitarian idealism meets quirky charm.
Add to this dynamic easy aspects from Uranus (who is the ruler of Aquarius), Pluto, Chiron and the Nodal Axis and well, our collective drive to cajole the best out of humanity is accentuated exponentially.
This duo have the moxie to get it done.
And, boy, are you gonna need it since Piscean Mars exactly squares Saturn in Sagittarius on Thursday.
Folks, this is a tricky one. Here an almost saintly amount of patience and perseverance is required. Though, positively, I feel the overall effect is softened since Pisces and Sadge are Mutable, thus making it easier to adapt.
Regardless, expect general frustration at every turn—trudging through molasses. A lot of B.S. may get piled on your plate all at once. Just don’t let it rile you—that’s the test.
As with most things Saturnine, if you know EXACTLY what you want and are willing to follow the rules PRESICELY in getting it, you’ll be fine.
Otherwise, keep your head down and don’t stop working, because after the square exacts the influence fades rather quickly.
So, there you have it, some of the gifts as well as some of the challenges fueling this week’s heavens.
Yep, remember all the Venusian charm and Mercurial quick wit at your disposal and use it!
