We are now approaching a square of Mercury to Uranus on the 15th, making it difficult for us to communicate clearly. Uranus has a disruptive quality and in seeking to open our minds to new ways of thinking it sometimes has the effect of creating anxiety, particularly for those of us with planets in the mutable signs (Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini). This can be a challenging time for interpersonal communication, but Mercury moves quickly and this influence will only last a few days. Because Mercury involves short trips, the disruptive quality of Uranus can lead to accidents as well as trip delays or detours.
Mars is sextile Chiron now, giving us the energy (Mars) to resolve any healing issues (Chiron) that are a concern, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes we know what we have to do but we are caught in a state of inertia, and Mars can help to move us out of that stuck place now.
Over the next few days, on the 16th and the 18th, the Sun conjuncts Pluto and forms a trine to Saturn, making it easier for us to release the old bonds that have been holding us back as Pluto transforms the structures in our life so that they can better accommodate our new vision.
This process is completed by the sextile of Mercury (thoughts) to Neptune (transcendence) on the 19th which aids in the integration of our experience (Mercury) and opens our creative channels (Neptune). This combination is excellent for meditation and spiritual experience as our mind is open to the experience of the divine. Venus is sextile Uranus the same day, bringing surprising encounters (Uranus) with new people (Venus) and adding a touch of excitement to our relationships.
