Mercury Sextile Mars

By nature, Mercury aspects show up bringing lots of ideas, plenty to say, a bunch of things to think about ... & read ... & study up on. Also, by nature, Mercury -- your intellectual energy -- is flexible, nimble, mobile, easily bored & he gets around a lot. Physical movement is literally one of the things Mercury in Astrology rules. Intellectual movement is a given.

This energy takes in data, remembers facts & assertions, studies evidence -- especially what it collects through first-hand observation. Mercury talks, shares information, acquires knowledge. He reads, writes, studies, poses questions, interprets what he's learned & draws conclusions. In other words, it's also Mercury's literal job to put two & two together. He explains reality to you in ways that make sense.

Mercury & Mars

* Mercury -- Ruler of Gemini -- Ruler of Virgo ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> The metaphor for your mind ---> Mercury, quick, intense, lively and highly mobile -- racing its way around the Sun faster than any of the other known planets, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's mental and communications skills

* Mars: Ruler of Aries -- Symbol of Your Active, Assertive, Energetic Self ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color! ---> Mars shows passion, initiative and self-assertion. ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions ....

When Mercury contacts Mars -- which doesn't happen all that often, surprisingly -- it energizes your mind in ways that are sure to be noticed. The hard aspects can be overwhelming, but this is one of the good ones -- so take advantage of it. First off, you're full of great ideas, new ways to approach projects, ways to make your work more complete and valuable ... and how you yourself can be more productive.

I know this sounds like a lot of work, but you're honestly up for it. This mix combines intellectual energy with physical energy -- and it absolutely requires some sort of action. Otherwise, you'll be restless, antsy, irritable and drowning in your own nervous energy. (Just like I said.) So ... you'll have great ideas to explore, new projects to launch (or investigate), things to talk about, things you want to do. You see where this is heading.

Basic Stuff About Mercury in Astrology ---> About Mercury ---> * Mercury occupies the innermost orbit of any other planet in our Solar System. Relative to Earth it is located on the other side of Venus. Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. * Mercury moves completely through the Zodiac in about a year, but his progression through the signs is very irregular. He goes into retrograde three to four times a year.

Basic Stuff About Mars in Astrology ---> About Mars ---> * After Venus, Mars is the next closest planet to Earth. It is located between Earth and Jupiter. It is the fourth planet from the Sun. * Mars takes about 2 years to complete its circle through the Zodiac. It stays in each sign about 6 weeks, but it retrogrades once every two years. That retrograde cycle can keep it in a single sign for up to six months -- or, of course, it can divide its retrograde path between two different signs.

Mercury Sextile Mars

This energy shows a nice flow between thought and action. You feel confident. Ideas come easy -- and clearly have merit. You solve problems without causing new ones. You aren't anxious, hesitant or conflicted. Life just flows. Energy is there when you need it. You can ask for what you want and actually get it. Makes you wish this was more common, doesn't it?

Clearly this time can be fun, productive, even entertaining. Your mind is energetic, engaged and vibrant. You can make progress and act on the ideas arriving for you to consider. With this wind at your back, progress is easy.

* Mars in General -- Your Inner Self of Action, Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> Red is a Mars color! ---> Symbol of energy and ambition ---> In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them.

* Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work ---> Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself.
