Sunday is chock full of celestial activity. Mercury perfects a trine to Uranus today, setting the swift planet’s antennae abuzz with quiet innovations and smart renovations. Meanwhile, Venus completes a trine with serious Saturn. Though this combination is not immediately joyful, it does offer the potential for delayed gratifications and smiles on earned satisfaction.
It is not just Mercury and Venus that make perfect aspects today. The Sun and Mars also conjoin. This union, which takes place every two years, occurs in Virgo this time.
The conjunction of the Sun and Mars in our sky marks the point where the Sun is immediately between the red planet and our Earth, and is when Mars and the Earth are furthest apart. Distant and hidden behind the Sun, Mars cannot be seen with naked eye at this point. Astrologically, this is the veiled climax of Mars’ cleansing fire ceremony, its arrival at the heart of the Sun. Mars and the Sun point directly at the way that we handle conflict, how we deal with anger, and what our conception of personal power is. There is no finer day to reflect on and sort through these things. This is the end and beginning of the two-year Mars cycle, and a crucial time to remind yourself that those who fight the last war again are sure to lose the next.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
