Here's what to watch for:
* Mercury is trine to Saturn. You are: thoughtful, serious, committed, focused, disciplined, strict, harsh, severe, limiting your words, careful with your thoughts, finishing or finalizing an agreement, trying to cut down or cut back on something, pruning or editing, speaking with conviction, arguing with a brick wall, thinking about age, death, and mortality, finding support from an elder or words of encouragement from someone with more experience, gaining a tactical or strategic advantage, fighting wisely, and growing up.
* Mercury and Saturn coming into a trine looks for support coming through age, maturity, and experience. A respectable person speaks out or offers up their help
* Mercury and Saturn in a trine start building something intellectual, mental, something with words, thoughts, pages, plans...
* Mercury and Saturn form an announcement, an attempt to get something under control, or a piece of news, the arrival of assistance or support
* Jupiter and Pluto in square to each other bring together the process of law, justice, fairness, and checks and balances into conversation with power and the underworld, with what is corrupt at the base of old structures or traditions
* The Sun walking into the t-square between Jupiter/Uranus and Pluto challenges us to take the lead on the path of our own personal transformation. Rather than letting circumstances push us into making changes, the Aries Sun encourages us to do so for ourselves, to be proactive.
* The Sun walking into the t-square also offers a picture of leaders, heads of state, fathers, or prominent solar figures walking through a significant moment of change and challenge.
* The image of the Sun as father, leader, prominent figure, walking into the t-square is also about acts and events that damage credibility, that imprison, that persecute, or that attack or thwart people in power. It's also about how to deal with a person in power who isn't well or who is trying to hurt or harm, bully or dominate.
Prayer: When the light is eclipsed, teach us the virtue of patient waiting and watching.
