EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN BHARANI (Aries 13.20-26.40)
Mercury finally gets out of Ashwini (Aries 0-13.20) where it has been since March 27th and moves into a friendlier constellation. This should help ease computer glitches although we are not out of the woods yet there until Saturn goes into Scorpio and gets away from Uranus.
Mercury transits into Bharani (pronounced BAR-AN-NEE) which is located at 13.20 Aries to 26.40 Aries and is ruled by the planet Venus on Tuesday. To astronomers, it consists of 3 stars know as 35, 39 and 41-Arietes and its symbol is the female vagina which means that it embodies the eternal creative feminine energy of the womb. It relates to the capacity to receive, hold and nurture and even has some Kali energy associated with destruction as the archetypal quality of the mother that will protect her young at all costs.
Emotionally the constellation embodies caution, jealousy, struggle, sacrifice, sexuality, catharsis nurturing and maternal love. It is also connected to the god Yama, of death and transformation and operates in hidden unpredictable ways and enjoys its secrecy. Yama is not a serious deity as we might normally think of and has a lighthearted playful expressive quality also and it is a benevolent deity and should not be feared. Hence the constellation of Bharani deals with the extremes of creating of life as well as dissolution.
Bharani swings between a lust for life and a fear of death between the naivete and wisdom. It has a young child’s excitement to explore its surroundings without restraint. If your rising sign or moon is born under this constellation or your Sun (April 27-May 10th), you are capable of going through huge transformations and radical changes and need to exhaust all possibilities in your quest.
Creativity is key word for this constellation and I often see artists born under this constellation which is not something one thinks about in Aries. If you were born under this constellation you can keep the peaceful countenance of Venus but may have raging storms going through you. You need to learn how to be responsible for ones action and avoid cruelty.
Mercury will be channeling the exalted Venus energy during this transit which is powerful for creative writing and speech and can lead to more gusto for life and deep and sweet intellectual expression. Mercury will pick up on 2nd and 7th house energy from Taurus and Libra now and bring in more cash flow, family love and better relationships for certain rising signs with Geminis benefiting the most but Libras will do better with also and also Leo rising.
The best part of the transit is 16.40-20.00 Aries, May 26-28th where Mercury is exalted in the D-9 here where a fiery mind can finally calm down and find the answers. There are no afflictions to Mercury in transit as it moves away from Rahu and Uranus and the connection to Ketu which has been scattering mental energy and causing a mess for computer programmers. This should bring some welcome relief. Still Mercury is still in Aries so Virgos are still experiencing a troubled 8th house transit and Aries are not happy either.
