Mercury is slowing down in preparation to end the retrograde period and station direct Sunday, July 12 at 4:26 am EDT at 5 degrees of Cancer. It’s wise now through the middle of next week to heed any thoughts or intuitions that surface that represent the culmination of information.
Mercury will station direct making a challenging aspect to Mars in Aries. This signifies a good time to start a new project that requires focus, commitment and determination. The energy will be supported throughout the Fall with an energized Mars in Aries making aspects to Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter.
The Mercury Mars alignment can make communications more testy and contribute to a more irritable time. So it’s wise to direct the energy to a good purpose.
Chiron is conjunct Mars at this time indicating a good time to look at how you implement your power to move forward with your aspirations and to see whether improvements can be made in that area.
I was recently listening to a lecture by Michael Mead about the global pandemic. His belief is that it is very much akin to a ritual of initiation – with the initial stage involving the walking away from routine life as we know it, followed by time spent alone while facing challenges to one’s courage, and the final stage, the return to life transformed on a deeper level. One of the questions he asked about this time was,””What is trying to be born through us?”
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Two fairies (nature spirits) dancing on a moonlit night.”
