Mercury, Neptune, Mars and Uranus

“What seas what shores what grey rocks and what islands
What water lapping the bow
And scent of pine and the wood thrush singing through the
What images return
O my daughter.” TS Eliot

“Though the spring is late and cold,
Though the uproar of greed
And malice shudders in the sky,
Pond, stream, and treetop raise
Their ancient songs;

The robin molds her mud nest
With her breast; the air
Is bright with breath
Of bloom, wise loveliness that asks
Nothing of the season but to be.” Wendell Berry

This week Mercury, the Trickster planet, moves up to a conjunction with Neptune, the planet of the Sea God  and of fog. At the same time Mars, the planet of action and desire,  is forming a challenging alignment with  Uranus, the planet of surprises and the unexpected.

In a nutshell these alignments indicate a good time for being in touch with what your dreams are for your life going forward. Creative projects can flourish under this influence. It can be a bit foggy when it comes to linear thinking though, so  it’s wise to take your time with any decisions that need to be made and double check the details.

Mars squaring Uranus indicates a time that it’s best to avoid impulsive speech and actions. Best to take your time when moving around as this duo when together can be accident prone. Tempers can flare more easily and there can be an impatience and a push for making things happen before their time.

One of the Sabian symbols of this time is,”A fertile garden under the Full Moon.”

Sabian symbol from Linda Hill
