Stand back and don’t get into a fight, or at least choose your fights very carefully. Is it worth it? If you’re up against someone else’s ego, anything from touchiness to full blown egotism, or anything that smacks of being out of control, take yourself out of the firing line wherever possible. Self protection feels like an important theme here.
Mercury finally emerging from the mute sign of Cancer, the sideways moving Crab, now has the chance to speak directly instead of indirectly, to make thoughts and feelings known, to start creative projects and to get organized. Leo has brilliant management skills. To those who don’t know what to do with their lives I always say, identify your passion. We all have something we feel passionate about and if you can turn it into your living then you’ve cracked it. Whatever, we’re in the Leo time of year with the Sun in his own sign and Mercury can now also get fired and draw attention rather than hiding out.
Throughout this year I’ve been talking a lot about the massive Jupiter – Pluto conjunction that is the main symbolism for the year of the pandemic. This aspect happens three times, the third and final one yet to come in November. But Jupiter is also picking up an aspect to another major planet, which also happens three times this year and this is the middle one, exact today with Venus in on the act as well.
New Moons happen when the Sun and the Moon (known as the Lights or the Luminaries) come together, marking the beginning of the Moon’s next 28 day cycle. The Lights symbolize life itself. Fresh starts and seed moments are also key symbolism but on this occasion the New Moon falls exactly opposite Saturn who is traditionally known as “the enemy of the Lights”.
Mercury getting back to business is a powerful omen for decision making of all kinds. The quote this week from Tony Robbins reminds us that this isn’t just about getting things done but also about making powerful life changes. Congruent, meaning in agreement and harmony with, is the heart of the quote.
