“When you fully focus your mind, you make others attracted to you.” Toba Beta


Even though the Moon is still passing through mystical Pisces, during the day, it may be best if we descended from the clouds and focused our thoughts on attending to more practical matters instead. Mental Mercury is harmoniously trining disciplined Saturn. It’s also sextile perceptive Pluto. These are excellent aspects for concentration, organization, research, and serious study and for communicating detailed information. We tend to choose our words more carefully now. This may also be a positive time to seek out advice from mentoring types or others whose judgment we value. Saturn symbolically represents authority figures, or more senior individuals. Sometimes on Mercury-Saturn days, we also hear from important persons from our past. Could even be individuals from our karmic past.

Astrology and the News: Pope Benedict XVI , who is an Aries, announced his pending resignation from his post on Monday with transiting Mars exactly square to his natal Saturn in his personal horoscope. Mars-Saturn aspects are often associated with endings, withdrawals, or retreats from action, so it is no surprise that he would formally announce his retirement under this influence. Mars-Saturn aspects can also indicate time periods in our lives when we feel more frustrated and less up to challenges. Mars is the planet of energy and action and Saturn symbolically represents resistance, limitations, delays, and blockages. When these two planets combine, it’s like trying to drive a car with the brakes on. You don’t get very far.

As I also mentioned in Monday’s blog, Pope Benedict made public his resignation with the transiting Mars separating from an exact square to Jupiter in the heavens. Mars-Jupiter influences can coincide with our taking important action (Mars) based on matters of our faith or beliefs (Jupiter). Jesus Christ was even thought to have been born when Mars and Jupiter were aligned together in the sky.
