MERCURY CONJUNCTS URANUS 3:49 pm ET/7:49 pm UT- The firestorm that was briefly mentioned yesterday comes today with the conjunction of Mercury and Uranus. This combination brings unexpected news, surprising or sudden (even shocking) events, higher potential for accidents (especially car accidents), radical changes (especially radical changes of mind), torrential weather, arguments, relocations, and emotionally-charged communications.
Mercury and Uranus are in Aries, a fire sign, and both planets are governed by the element of air. This gives the conjunction a massive boost of power to make a lasting impression or have a ripple effect. This is one of a few days each year that brings the opportunity to make a mark. You could say today's energy "brands" itself in time, so what we do with it can be just as permanent.
As if we needed more, Pluto and Saturn are in aspect to Mercury and Uranus, making quite a bonfire. This means that the things that develop from the Mercury-Venus conjunction (the themes in bold in the first paragraph) serve to transform and structure (or restructure) something for us.
The thing to understand is that several planets, several heavy-hitting planets, are aspecting each other today. This makes the energy much more complex and definitely more intense.
The Mercury-Uranus conjunction occurs at 20 Aries and the Sabian symbol (energetic frequency) of "a young girl feeding birds in the winter." This energy relates to responsibility and taking on too much responsibility -- more than one is capable of maintaining, thus being detrimental to self. There can strong resistance to change. This symbol also relates to themes/issues of trust.
BONFIRE OF THE EMPIRES - Venus' energetics of "the purging of the priesthood" (clearing out what is not spiritually aligned) conspire with Pluto at "the Union Jack flies over a new British warship" (transformation of empire and imperialism) and Saturn at "an Easter sunrise service" (emergence of spiritual order) to overhaul old systems and constructs (our own and global ones). With all of the fire energy, we might say a "bonfire of the empires" is underway.
This solar-lunar year has been the Year of the Shift or the Year of Mass Awakening with the energetic of "the music of the spheres" re-tuning human consciousness to be able to see the truth about all things, but particularly the truth of global shadow government. Today's energetics cause hierarchies and power/control systems to suffer further losses in their eons-old hold over the human mind. All is aligning or standing with what is true and "proper" (natural, sane). We are witnessing, experiencing, and contributing to the transition into that civilization. It's the "Second Renaissance" and it is a spiritual revolution.
THE DEPTHS - The Earth is discharging the energetic frequency of "miners emerging from a deep coalmine" and Mars is discharging the energetic frequency of "deep within the depths of the Earth, new elements are being formed." We want to "mine" or plumb the depths of ourselves to align with our highest course, hope, wish, or dream for ourselves and the world. Our inner world speaks to us, giving us wisdom.
Now is the time that we are preparing for a new year, according to the natural count of time -- the cycles of the Sun and Moon. We can put anything we want on our "table set for an evening meal" - our foundation for the future.
9:37 pm ET/01:37 am UT - THE MOON CONJUNCTS PLUTO just a few hours after the big Mercury-Uranus-Pluto-Saturn mash up. Pluto rules the "underworld," and we are already in the "depths" with the Earth and Mars' energies, so things can get downright ugly. Wounds inflicted by words are particularly devastating, so we are careful to think before we speak (especially if emotions are running high).
Finally, a reminder about Uranus: it always puts things the way they need to be. It will do it the hard way if it has to, but it prefers not to. It prefers that we free ourselves from what limits us.
Take good care today, wise owls. Be attentive while driving, double check that candles are extinguished and electrical devices are turned off. Choose words wisely. Listen to the inner voice. Change something. Adapt to changes that are happening. Free something. Bring something out of the darkness and into the light of this bright and fiery day.
