When I was starting my Blood and Guts astro class, back in August, 2023, Mercury was conjunct Mars in Virgo. That’s a top notch mental knife.
Looking further ahead, I caught onto this oddity – Mercury and Mars will hook up in various signs, repeatedly, into February, 2024.
This is unusual because Mercury moves roughly twice as fast as Mars. This sees the planets connect; then Mercury makes a lap around the zodiac, to conjoin Mars, roughly once a year.
In August the conjunction was in Virgo, tight but not exact. September we were clear, but then this this unfolds:
This is abstract but I thought it would be interesting to watch. I have this conjunction, natally, so I knew I’d be activated. I expected people to challenge each other and be more impatient than usual. Demands would be made and things would speed up with these planets conjoined. Quick minds lead!
Overall, I think the affect is positive, if thinking and acting are merged. If you embrace that, you can apply your skills and probably get what you want. Either way, tactical thinking is in vogue and yes! I’m biased!
That Lamborghini? One time I went on a date with a guy who had one. “I have a Lamborghini,” he said.
“Really?’ I said. “I am a Lamborghini.”
I chose to update this post because I really feel and resonate with this energy. In order for the series of conjunctions to occurs, these planets have to come together and separate, repeatedly. I was looking at my upcoming Lunar Returns. I have this conjunction prominent, the next two months. Looks like I’m staying hopped up, even if you have a chance to catch your breath. I’m not complaining.
I have courage coursing through my veins at this time. I feel equipped and in control.
The last conjunction is in Capricorn. This reads as “mastery” in my mind. I have some clients working on this issue, right next to me. People who are naturally confrontive and pushy, disciplining themselves, to hone their skills as they move through this world.
I’ll take a chance and say this: my Aquarian friend, Kay, who stars in Shack Man and I, made a deal to make sure things stayed fun for all. If either of us did anything icky, the other would say, “Try not to suck!” This always resulted in peels of laughter. We had a goal, see? The goal was not to suck! Not to whine! Not to bore people!
With Mercury and Mars in Capricorn – try (Mars) to think (Mercury)! And furthermore – try not to fail at this!
How do you feel about the Mercury Mars conjunction?
