Mercury Conjunct Uranus

Mercury conjunct Uranus happens every year -- at least once depending on what's happening with its retrograde cycle. It's also like a second bite of the apple in providing a Mercury in Aquarius experience. That can be both interesting & troublesome, depending on how much you like surprises & invitations to come up with revolutionary ideas & novel solutions to problems. This energy contains all of that.

So when Mercury makes this annual hook-up, prepare to settle in & befriend your Inner Genius. Or at least watching him (her) in action ... & show some respect. Mercury conjunct Uranus shows your "workaday mind" infused & empowered with your Inner Genius. This is a bold, progressive mindset, full of great, forward-thinking ideas, brilliant concept & moments of undeniable intellectual excellence.

Mercury square Saturn

Mercury square Saturn promotes a seriously depressed or overly conservative mindset. You are likely dealing with serious issues, limited options and for some reason are wary of new information. You may not have enough sources of news ... or you may not trust the ones that are available. You may not know for sure what to believe ... so you feel your best choice is to go slow and err on the side of caution.

Using "what's worked in the past" over-rules any effort to experiment. Tried-and-true methods seem to offer more direction and comfort than anything new or anything based mostly on theory. Following this route may indeed help you stay safe -- or at least not get you in more serious trouble, but it could also slow you down in solving the problems you face ... faster.

Mercury in Taurus

The pace and tone of Mercury in Aries is dynamic and assertive. It speaks up. It pushes its ideas. It shoots from the lip -- often. Mercury in Taurus is ... well, different. It illustrates once again how signs that follow each other in the Zodiac.a, work to move experience back toward the center. Mercury in Taurus is an earth-based intellect -- practical, realistic, sensible ... and measured. (That's a nice way of saying "slow" ... but don't quote me on that.)

Mercury in Taurus is far less abstract than many Mercury combinations. It prides itself on things like being reasonable, reliable, patient. So, if this Mercury's primary goal is to make sense ... of life, of its ideas, of whatever's going on in the outside world, remember that its thinking style depends heavily on the information that comes through the five physical senses.

Mercury Square Jupiter

Even more than the Sun, Jupiter is considered the most benevolent energy in the Astrological line-up. Where he exists in your horoscope, Life will often pour an amazing amount of bounty into your metaphorical coffers. You enjoy that life area. You gain from it. There is a win-win relationship between the two of you that can feel Divinely Directed. Often, it is.

If you have a happy Jupiter in your chart, you can probably point to why you are (how shall I say this?) more blessed than others. It doesn't do any good to tip-toe around the obvious. Life's game is simply not fair-and-equal in the short term. Mystics assure us that when Karma totes up the numbers there will be a re-balancing of the Cosmic books ... and whatever necessary adjustments. Always a reckoning.

Sun Conjunct Uranus

When the Sun conjuncts Uranus, it sets up an interesting energy of serious restlessness, a desire for more freedom and independence and provides some highly original ideas on how to accomplish that. Some of those may be very welcome during this season of Love in the Time of Coronavirus ... but others are likely to be ill-advised and dangerous. So, ideas are okay. Acting on all of them, maybe not so much.

The Sun aligns with Uranus once a year -- which is plenty if you use it right. When this happens, you want some more excitement, more compelling adventures to pursue, and the wild-and-crazy has some serious appeal. "You only live once," may become your mantra -- for a while. This energy can also usher in unexpected changes -- which you didn't ask for and which may not all be welcome.

Mercury Square Pluto

Astrology considers square aspects to be "hard angles" ... a relationship between two planets, two Inner Selves, that make each difficult to deal with. Action in one life area conflicts or competes with action in another area -- and these two places of concern are themselves naturally at odds. Squares are stressful, and planets, like people, behave badly under pressure. It makes life interesting, but harder.

When Mercury is stressed, you can be snappish, irritable, sarcastic. Pluto, even when he's behaving himself, is willful, secretive, driven by passions he rarely reveals and answerable, if at all, only to himself.

New Moon in Taurus

There's a lot to be said for Taurus and its virtues in any season, but especially now. And when the New Moon in Taurus forms this early in the sign, it brings the constant call to action & high intensity of Aries to a screeching halt ... because that's not how Taurus operates. It is literally not his style to hurry over anything ... or get too upset, no matter what the situation.

Taurus takes life in stride ... and that stride is never very fast ... for any reason. And when that's the vibe of the time, so to speak, it's actually pretty soothing. Even if you're normally a Type A personality for whom nothing moves or happens fast enough, during Taurus, you can chill. And you can understand -- just a little -- that everything happens in its own time, every season has a rhythm ... and the one in Taurus is a lullaby.

Sun Square Saturn

If you hang out with Astrologers or study Astrology yourself for even a little while, you'll learn about something called "aspects." These are the angles planets form with other planets as they move through the sky. There are "good aspects" -- fortuitous ones that bring help, strength, luck & unification to your assets. And, of course, there are the other kind. "Bad aspects." Let's call a spade a spade.

Sometimes Astrologers try to guilt you into feeling bad to do that. Like saying, "There's no such thing as a bad aspect. It's just a "learning experience." Ok, semantics. BFD. I'm not one of "those" astrologers. There are some damned uncomfortable combinations and those quaint little "learning experiences" they describe can be dark and terrifying descents into hell itself. So spare me your efforts to pretty that up.

The Dark of the Moon

The Dark of the Moon is the 2 1/2 day period that comes every month before the arrival of the New Moon ... for that Zodiac sign. Some Astrologers call it the "dead" Moon. Ok, that may be descriptive, but it sure sounds ominous -- and hardly poetic. Whereas the Dark of the Moon sounds ... well, mysterious and intriguing. IMO. But maybe that's me. Anyway ... the two terms are the same, so pick one. Or, use both. Hey, I'm easy.

During the Dark of the Moon, the Moon is lining up directly with the Sun in the sky. If visible, it would be visible only in the daytime. (Don't try to find it!! Don't try this at home!!) But it's not visible, because the Moon is tiny, the Sun is immense, and when the two align -- which is the literal definition of what the New Moon IS ... the Moon gets totally lost in the Sun's overpowering glare.
