Mercury in Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries
This is NOT part of our Eclipse Project
Mercury in Aquarius has formed the
approaching sextile with Mars in Aries.
This aspect formed at 14°.
The theme of this pattern is
Quick, confident action fueled by
bright ideas and sudden inspirations.
It's been a long time since Mercury was kicking up sand by himself in the sky. Again and again he's been paired up with the Sun, or part of a pack, lending ideas and valuable suggestions on how to get something done. That's his job, you know, and, man, does he do it well. Today he's partnered with Mars in Aries, and they've got some work to do.
