* Mercury is direct, hopefully presenting forward movement where there have been delays, setbacks, or confusion!
* Facing opposition or obstacles in the midst of growing something or trying to move toward a goal (Moon moving toward opposition with Saturn)
* Challenges, conflicts, disagreements about how to move forward (Moon moving toward square with Mars)
* Building, strategizing, planning, and competition (Mars moving into square with Saturn)
* An untenable situation finds an advocate or voice of support, reason, and fairness (Moon trine Jupiter just before the opposition to Saturn)
* Mercury is direct again, and so it's time to move forward with the plans we've been waiting on, or the information or messages we've been patiently awaiting
* A hard or bottom line (Mercury direct co-present with Saturn with an approaching opposition coming from the Moon)
* News or information that very quickly clarifies and simultaneously creates a challenge or cross-roads decision.
* Speaking to a voice of reason and/or diplomacy we find the patience and tact to negotiate a powerful opposition or momentary setback.
Prayer: Teach us the progress of patience.
