This Friday, Libra Mercury will inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. Picking up where Monday’s SuperMoon left off, our minds will be filled with ruminations of old wounds and emotional injury.
Back in August, Virgo Mercury opposed Chiron—this was a simpler exchange of the Mind with the Healer. Oppositions are a direct route—inconjuncts are not so straightforward. August’s opposition saw Earth and Water swap energy—two elements that share astrological affinity. This week’s quincunx is between Air and Water—not so much sympathy with these two.
In Virgo, it’s all about clutter. Mercury Virgo deals with the cluttered mind, wanting/needing our mental functions to be streamlined, efficient—no dead weight. Pisces Chiron aided Mercury here with forgiving our cluttered mental spaces and making room for compassion. Not every thought and communication will be perfect. And that’s ok.
Well, in Libra, the mind wants/needs social stimulation. It’s all about relating. Balancing the pros and cons of societal interaction. So, given that, what does the Piscean Maverick have for our Messenger God this time? It will be a clumsy attempt at healing how we relate to others. I say clumsy because quincunxes aren’t the easiest of aspects to tap in to. More about that here. You will need to use your brain and do a bit of navel-gazing to get it working.
On August 24th the Yod configuration between Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus occurs. You can read about the Yod, here; Part 1 of Mercury in Virgo 2014, here and the role Mars conjunct Saturn plays, here.
Lots of yummy stuff, so let’s get to it—
What happens when steamy Mars/Saturn goes into easy aspect with earthy Mercury? When structured action combines with quicksilver intellect?
Now, where in your life do things need to be shook up? Where could you use some revolution? Where is a blind spot that could use some light?
This configuration could be an answer to most all of that.
Mercury moves into Virgo on Friday, August 15th and will be there just over 2 weeks until Monday, September 1st.
The Messenger of the Gods is comfortable in Virgo, a sign that he rules.
Mercury is strong here.
While in Leo, it was all passionate speaking and creative thinking, but now our minds get to switch gears. Virgo Mercury is analytical and rational. She processes and communicates with sagacious integrity and insists on only conveying accurate information. She delves into the details and comes up with a fine-tuned ordered system.
For the next 2 weeks, words will come easier than at other times, since Virgo Mercury energy is one of the wordsmith. If a crisis should arise, you may also notice that you have the ability to stay somewhat more level-headed, which is another trait of this mercurial Maiden.
