Mercury ☿ makes multiple connections

 

 

6/17-6/19: Our minds and mouths could be ultra active as Mercury ☿, ruler of thoughts and words, makes multiple connections (above and so below): trines Neptune ♆ - we open to the voice of intuition and inspiration; sextiles Jupiter - our perspectives broaden; squares Uranus - sudden news or surprises; trines Chiron - potential for healing conversations; and opposes Pluto - deep transformative truths revealed...

The open-minded, sharp-witted, and quick-footed spirit of Gemini...

 

 

What a wonderful time to connect with others to share and discuss ideas. The open-minded, sharp-witted, and quick-footed spirit of Gemini is in the air (Mercury enters Gemini today, joining the Sun & Moon. And Venus will follow in a week). The symbol for Gemini is the twins ♊, symbolic of the flexibility to embrace duality (Gemini can go this way or that way, see this perspective and that one, etc.).

Also, Gemini and it’s ruling planet, Mercury, preside over day-to-day business, commerce, interactions, communication, and transportation - so there could be an extra emphasis (and speediness) in these activities, in general.

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite today...

 

 

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite at 10º Taurus ♉ today. Venus is the epitome of harmony and beauty. She is passive, receptive, but gets what she wants through the power of attraction, whereas Mars actively initiates and will fight for and conquer whatever he desires. They are opposites, but have an irresistible need for one another, because together they achieve balance...

Venus is in her home sign in Taurus so she may have the upper hand right now to coax Mars into submission to her wishes for peace and affection...

Wherever 10º Taurus ♉ is in your chart is where you will experience these two archetypes during this influence, which could last a few days on either side of 5/23.

At the same time, I’m still feeling the feisty energy in the realm of communication from the Mercury Mars conjunction of a couple days ago... Especially yesterday and today while the Moon is in Aquarius ♒ inspiring us to be true to ourselves, even if that means not pleasing others.

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies in Taurus ♉...

 

 

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies (at 7º Taurus ♉). Communication and transportation could be furiously determined. Razor blade mouths and road rage -OR- the willingness to integrate and communicate a new positive impulse in alignment with your true values... This influence may be felt for a day or two on either side of 5/20.

Today could be a magical day!

 

 

There is a potential for love, beauty, abundance, and joy to vibrantly flow - everywhere. Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter gather at 25º Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this special meeting: “A double promise is revealed by some suggestive event of both immediate or literal and sentimental significance.” ...The word ‘promise’ is associated with divine assurance of one’s ultimate wholeness.

Spread the word of love!

 

 

Think, speak, remember, share and connect with love. For a couple weeks light-footed Mercury ☿ (Hermes), the Messenger god, and beautiful Venus ♀ (Aphrodite), goddess of love, are extra close and twice they merge. First on 5/9 in Aries ♈ - encouraging new, bold, and spirited expressions. Then on 5/16 in Taurus ♉ - inspiring us to maintain serenity, grounded-ness, and beauty in relationships.

Mercury “re-born” brings new messages...

 

 

During Mercury Retrograde, Mercury appears to move backwards. It also fades out of visibility in the night sky. As Mercury stations direct, it reappears in the morning sky.

“The Egyptians saw the appearance of a Morning Star as a God rising from the UnderWorld - the realm of the Dead, and thus being re-born... As Mercury Stations direct [in Aries], we are receiving personal messages about how we need to be re-born into the Warrior archetype and how to communicate, move and problem solve like a Warrior... It is not so much about conquering anything or anyone else as much as conquering your own fears or feelings of inadequacy or inability.” ~Gary Caton

Mercury is direct!

 

 

Mercury went direct at 6:04a EDT, after 3 weeks of inner reflection, reconnecting with the past, and possibly dealing with mishaps or miscommunications. Mercury retrograde doesn’t cause problems, but rather the problems that were building under the surface are often revealed during the retrograde part of the cycle. Now things can move forward with the bugs worked out, but the transition days can be funky!

Mars square Pluto, Mercury conjunct Jupiter

 

 

There is a confrontation between Mars, feisty god of war, and Pluto, lord of the underworld. Unconscious factors may be fueling strong emotions and creating tension. Can we face our demons, let go of the compelling drive to control, & express our truths with self-awareness? Action may feel urgent as the process of transformation is sparked, yet with Mercury retrograde, we are still in a period of inward reflection.

Also, tonight Mercury (retrograde) conjoins Jupiter, stimulating a review of internal connections or outer reconnections, and inspiring copious communication. Through it there is an opportunity for optimism and faith - that any friction, which may feel counter to our well-being, is actually serving to expand and lift consciousness.

The mid-point of Mercury retrograde

 

 

We are at the mid-point of the Mercury Retrograde (time to go within and review) cycle, as it touches the Sun today (inferior conjunction), representing the seed moment for Mercury - perhaps there is new information, a new understanding, or a new idea that is forming, but it is not yet developed and may not be fully clear until after Mercury goes direct on Apr 23rd.
