Mercury and Saturn are getting together right now to create contracts and commitments that bind things together for the long haul. They are bringing up integrity, commitment, discipline, organization, focus, and maturity. Mercury is very strong now in the sign of his rulership and exaltation in Virgo, but the Moon squaring Mercury in Jupiter's sign suggests some kind of divine intervention or liberal expansion in an otherwise more conservative or contractive looking situation.
Today might be one of those days that emphasizes the ideological differences between a true believer and a bottom line realist. In this exchange, Mercury in Virgo does have significantly more support, being in his own rulership and exaltation. In our ever conquesting confidence, what are we refusing to see or trying to gloss over? What attention to details are we childishly trying to kick to the side?
At the same time, where does a dose of magic and faith put all things in their proper places? What does confidence and belief do for situations that no amount of bugging out over facts will help us with?
In other astrological news, Venus and Mars are getting closer to their conjunction in the sign of Leo. This points to a potentially very sexy, romantic, or creatively charged collaboration coming our way in the next week or so. The holy conjunction of opposites could do any of the following: increase our sex drive or appetite, increase our desire to spend or have what we want, create magical unions, friendships, romantic reveries, or make us feel like kings and queens if only for a short while. They might also blur the lines between lovers and enemies, friends and lovers, or leaders and followers. Watch for both inappropriate exchanges of power and affection or forbidden attractions to what you know isn't good for you in the long run. All of this in addition to increased productivity, creativity, and sensuality in the week to come.
One last thing...Saturn is finally picking up some speed and thank the gods will be leaving Scorpio in the next few weeks after a very long summer in his last retrograde in the fixed water sign. More on his entry into Sagittarius coming soon!
Prayer: Faith is in the details, the details are infinite and lead us back to the mystery of faith
