7.20.21 – Shaking out the cobwebs with Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus
Mercury, planet of the mind, is in Cancer right now where our thinking tends to be more emotional and sensitive. Cancer is an acquisitive sign – it likes to gather and collect things of sentimental value, including thoughts and assumptions about the people around us. The unlayering process of yesterday’s post with Mercury in a square aspect to Chiron continues today, but where Chiron exposes the sensitive wounds that have been dormant for some time as part of the healing process, Uranus breaks up the energy that’s become stuck and helps us to move through any blocks.
Meanwhile the Moon is in Sagittarius, encouraging freedom of thought and adventure in ideas, and it conjoins the South Node this morning (EDT) to help to liberate us from old patterns which hold us back. Some planetary alignments of liberation can be frightening, but this one is a gentle unloosening of any bonds which have kept us locked into thought patterns which don’t serve us. A harmonious sextile from the Moon to practical Saturn in late morning (EDT) helps to stabilize any lingering chaos, and a trine from the Moon to Chiron in the afternoon (EDT) will complete the process of healing the old wounds which have emerged over the past couple of days. ❤️
