Enjoy moments of beauty, streaks of loveliness like a raven’s flight at sunset or violet blossom in the undergrowth; as the Sun in Gemini opposes Jupiter this weekend it brings an ephemeral sense of joy and humor. Liberating moments that can ease our souls and smooth our interactions.
We’ll need these moments for resilience, because underneath this lush late spring bounty growls a more substantial conversation. A growing Mercury – Mars conjunction imbues us with the power to be decisive, we just have to make sure we make good decisions and not knee-jerk reactions. Both Mars and Mercury are presently out of bounds, that is beyond (north of) the usual path of the sun. When planets go beyond the yearly path of the sun, what they symbolize seem to let go of normal constraints and take on a wildcard quality, for better or worse. As an example, D. Trump has both his Mercury and Pluto out of bounds in his natal chart, which reads astrologically as someone who does not feel societal restraints on what he thinks or says (Mercury) or his concept of the use of power (Pluto). Chew on that symbol for a bit.
As Mercury conjunct Mars over the next few weeks, peaking on June 17, conversations are going to get fierce. The conjunction encourages us to engage powerful debate about what actually keeps us safe and helps us thrive concerning our health, family, food and food production, home and homeland. This can potentially translate into crankiness or worrywart attitude, or devolve into politically mean comments in the headlines. But it can go much deeper and become decisively productive if we choose to take it there. We have to face some tough stuff. It may not be an easy conversation, but could be worthwhile as this Mercury/Mars conjunction in the domestic, guarded, deeply feeling sign of Cancer opposes serious Saturn and Pluto.
This weekend begins festively, if with melodramatic undertones . . .
