We get the 3rd pass of the Mars/Mercury planetary war with Mercury winning the war and with the exact conjunction on Wednesday,  Dec. 27th at 731 pm EST.   Mars and Mercury are bitter enemies in conjunction because Mercury needs to win through the intellect and Mars is too action orientated to win a war of words.   The two create squabbling and irritation and it will be felt particularly by Gemini and Virgo rising and Aries and Scorpio and Sagittarius rising most.   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 and Sagittarius Rising  are most vulnerable Dec. 26th-28th  and on days like Wednesday which is ruled by Mercury and Tuesday ruled by Mars.  We also have worry about the world as world leaders can get into angry shouting matches with this energy.

The good news is that the two planets are in different signs and different nakshatras until they are both at zero degrees Sagittarius on the 27th.   This is in the gandanta area where deep dark emotions surface to get cleansed and healed.   .

Mercury  is winning  the planetary war with Wednesday  morning  then maybe less so after the exact conjunction on Wednesday  so a good few days to hunker down if you are in a Mars/Mercury or Mercury/Mars period and Aries and Scorpio seem particularly vulnerable so drive carefully. Jupiter is trining the Sun on the 27th and this will bring in good luck and soothe troubled emotions a bit.

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 Dec. 26-27th 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.
