Not since 1925 have three planets been aligned so tightly in the sky, and it won’t happen again until 2053. Early Monday morning (EST) Mars and Jupiter will be aligned within 7 minutes, and Mercury will be just one degree away. This is a tight conjunction that fuses the energies of these three planets and will make for a beautiful sight in the pre-dawn sky.
Mars, Jupiter and Mercury are all in Sagittarius now: the sign where we find ourselves open to new ideas, to exploring other cultures to gain a greater understanding of ourselves. In Sagittarius we feel more optimistic and perhaps a bit overconfident; we strive to find a sense of meaning in our lives. Learning becomes more important and we may have a deeper desire to study philosophy or perhaps the law.
Mars is the god of action, he motivates us to accomplish our desires. Jupiter gives us the optimism and the faith that we can accomplish those things, and Mercury aids in the thought process that creates the plan. An alliance of Mars and Jupiter can bring an aggravated sense of self-righteousness, and Jupiter with Mercury can believe that one is always right. All three planets are operating in tandem now, and in Sagittarius there is some danger that overabundance of enthusiasm could become like a bubble which becomes too full of air and then bursts. Watch for some harsh words (Mars/Mercury) and arrogance (Mars/Jupiter) but take advantage of the beautiful energy that is available now.
