Weekend Weather, 4.17-4.18.21
Mercury sextile Mars
Mercury sextile Jupiter
Mercury Square Pluto
Mars trine Jupiter
Mercury Cazimi in Aries
This weekend is full of planetary activity, most of it productive. Other than a square between Mercury and Pluto, all of the aspects are supportive in nature and encourage expansive thoughts and the action to back it up. First, we have an aspect between two planets currently in mutual reception. Whereas Mars in Gemini and Mercury in Aries don’t have any particular dignity in those placements, they do in the sign of their ruler. Mercury is at home in Gemini and Mars in Aries. When two planets swap rulers like this, they tend to add more support and ability than they would have on their own. It’s even more so when the two planets can actually aspect each other as they do here. Mercury and Mars together create a desire for action married to mental dexterity. We have the ability to move quickly without sacrificing attention to detail or proper planning. Prior to that, however, Mercury sextiles Jupiter, which takes the detailed planning of the messenger god and gives him the big view. Jupiter is able to see it all. Jupiter is able to use intuition and wisdom to guide conscious, meticulous action. Jupiter understands that contingency and change is a part of being human and making choices. When these two planets unite, we stay flexible and alert in the midst of shifting circumstances. It is a prime long-term planning transit. Together, these two aspects give us the ability to see far ahead and the energy to begin to implement our desires.
Later in the day, we may find ourselves interrogating our thoughts more deeply as Mercury is squaring Pluto, which naturally brings us deeper than we may be comfortable with. Any unexamined motive or lingering thought will be brought to the surface for us to resolve. Rather than seeing this transit as an obstacle, see it as a speed bump allowing us to pick up anything we may have dropped because it was too complicated or messy. Bring all of yourself into the future.
The following day, Mars and Jupiter meet each other from Gemini and Aquarius, respectively. As two air signs, they help support us on both the relational and intellectual realm. With Mars, we wish to use our words to bring about change and assert our will. Jupiter in Aquarius asks that we have faith in our weird ideas and our visions for a brighter, more egalitarian future. We act best during this transit when our actions and our beliefs align. Get in touch with the system of thought underlying your plans and don’t let them fall in unconscious reflexing. In the words of Melissa Lafara, Jupiter is going to bring us to the next level of our development. There’s not turning back to what was before. Where do you hope to go next?
Finally, we have a sort of Mercurial reset at this planet forms an exact conjunction to the Sun. This “cazimi” period has the messenger god in the seat of the king, giving its mental processing much power and imminence.
Read on for how to step into this soft, moving stream.
Any thoughts on Sun trine Angel? 🙂
Very in tune with their subconscious! Angel represents the higher self, spiritual nature of the self, however you want to call it. Some may relate it to religion. It could be that the person identifies a lot with their spiritual sense of self or their religion, it could also be that they base their identity upon one religion or spiritual principle such as karma (although this comes from Buddhism, some people solely believe in this concept of karma). In these senses, it indicates that there is a sense of harmony between the identity and the belief system of the native.
