Mercury direct, now in late Aries and within orb of conjoining Uranus, also forms a mutual reception with Mars in Gemini waxing semi-square Uranus, and thus continues the theme of spring activity, many surprises and lots of verbal excitement. Pacing and prioritizing are necessary to avoid becoming swept up in someone else’s chaos. The nodal shift to Leo-Aquarius will spawn a dramatic surge in creative activism over the next year and a half. The resistance movement will be emboldened as more and more promises are broken, freedoms and healthcare erode, while patriarchal barbarianism seems to take over our national and international politics.
The active many shall overcome the ruthless few as Mar’s waxing square to Neptune in Pisces and waning trine to Jupiter will provide additional inspiration and ease for those on this path of awareness and activism. The mutable signs are activated with Mercury’s waxing trine to Saturn in Sag @ 27*. It may be no coincidence that the 28* Sag point is the Galactic center. The explosion of alternative facts and fake news is challenging us to recognize and intuit the validity and relativity of truth. The approaching Sun in Gemini mantra is: “I gather information with intuitive searching.” Stabilizing and balancing transits include the Sun in Taurus’ trine to Pluto in Capricorn and Mercury’s upcoming ingress into Taurus May 15th.
Finally, our most influential long term transit is Jupiter Rx @14* Libra making the waning inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces. This has been affecting relationships since October 2016 and will be strongly in orb May through July 2017, through Jupiter stationary direct and Neptune stationary retrograde. So ask yourself “What blindspots must I heal and what real outer adjustments must I make in order feel congruent in my relating scene personally and professionally?”
