With the waning Moon traversing through futuristic Sagittarius, all day, and thinker Mercury also joining the Sun and Chiron in trail-blazing Aries (where it will remain until the 27th), our thoughts and emotions tend to be much more focused now on finding a way to determinedly “get on with our lives,” as both Aries and Sagittarius are direct-acting fire signs that prefer to take the lead in things and do not take too kindly to being held back by perceived or real-world restrictions or limitations.
Mercury in Aries can also be highly resourceful, energetic and passionate about making discoveries and coming up with brand new solutions to problems. On the shadow side, with Mercury here in the sign of the ram, there’s sometimes more of a tendency to be argumentative, to act too rashly or impulsively on our ideas, or in ways that are too self-centered.
Today, though, as Mercury flits into “start-me up” Aries (at 12:48 am) it is also going to be having a more serious, weighted discussion with taskmaster Saturn, in detached Aquarius (via a sextile aspect at 7:58 pm). Saturn will likely be admonishing the Winged Messenger to make sure, among other things, that he has his attractive facial mask properly attached, behind his ears, before he formally joins Mick Jagger on stage. 🙂
Actually, this Mercury-Saturn sextile is also possibly an opportunity for us to channel our own “inner Einstein” in the sense that Albert Einstein (who had a Pisces Sun) also had his brilliant Mercury in the sign of Aries and in close conjunction with Saturn in Aries; Mercury-Saturn aspects are often associated with a more disciplined mind and deep powers of concentration. Additionally, Mercury sextile Saturn allows us to effectively draw on our past experiences in decision-making. It is also an excellent influence to consult with trusted advisors or with mentors we admire or look up to.
