EYE ON ASTROLOGY: MARS CONJUNCT MERCURY SEPT. 3RD AND SEPT. 16th
It’s Tuesday, ruled by Mars and it is close to its most bitter enemy, Mercury and the squabbling and irritation will be high into the weekend when the two planets are in a planetary war. If you do not find a way to release anger and conflict, it could spillover into accidents and fires and wounds and cuts.
We need to model ourselves after kids. They get angry, they let out their aggression and they may even get into a fight with another kid but then its over and they move on and they do not hold onto it. As a adults we have been taught that fighting and aggression are bad and we repress it. Find a way to get to let go of your anger in a positive way. Scream at the top of your lungs in an empty car or house; take a baseball bat and pound a pillow; do some exercise or engage in a competitive sport; do some service work and help veterans on a Tuesday or donate to their charities.
When we feel victimized and do not express or act then accidents happen so we can gain sympathy for frustration. Do not let it get that far. Find a way to get it out an release it before it gets dangerous. Aries, Scorpios, Geminis and Virgos are most vulnerable through the weekend and on days like Wednesday which is ruled by Mercury. Leo/Aquarius rising also seem vulnerable with the planets on the Leo/Aquarius axis. We also have worry about the world as world leaders can get into angry shouting matches with this energy.
The problem is that Mars and Mercury are within a few degrees of each other through about Sept. 20th because Mercury goes direct on Sept. 5th and stays close to Mars. That means its a longer influence for about three weeks and you will have to master this one or it will get you into trouble. The conjunction repeats on Saturday, Sept. 16th but Mercury will win the war on Sept. 16th and then lose on Sept. 17th.
Mars is winning the planetary war with Mercury from about 2 am CDT on Sept 2nd until about noon on Sept 4th so a good few days to hunker down if you are in a Mars/Mercury or Mercury/Mars period. Geminis and Virgos are very vulnerable because Mars is winning the war.
The combination of Mercury and Mars can bring up disputes and arguments so remember not to argue in the car and pullover if something starts and drive carefully and watch out for the other guy Sept 2-4th during the most intense part of that transit. Drive carefully. Be alert for the other guy.
Mars/Mercury causes us to get caught up thinking in our head and hashing over things that people have said and that prevents us from being alert (Mars) and then problems happen. So focus on one thing at a time. If you are driving, do not talk on your cell phone and multi-task. Stay focused. If you are exercising or in physical activity, be 100 percent.
Mars-related yoga postures can be helpful for developing alertness so doing the Warrior Pose will help and the frog pose will help with low energy from the Sun’s combustion to help the adrenals find more power. Shoulder stands will support Mercury and calm the over-active mind.
So, you all be careful out there as the Sargent in Hill Street Blues used to stay!
Have a great day.
