Mercury Direct - Seeking Clarity

"For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see"

The week begins with the station of Mercury direct, in a trine to Pluto — which allows and encourages us to dig deeper in order to find clarity. Mercury doesn't quite get back to the opposition to Neptune but we still feel some of the initial confusion and indecision until Mercury begins to pick up some speed as the week progresses. Pluto is also nearly stationary direct, beginning to give us some sense that the period of 'Re-Evaluation' is coming to a close. However, Mars is slowing down and will turn retrograde by the end of the month. As Mars slows down, it hangs in square to Neptune, which offers a great deal of creative energy but also creates some challenging and stressful obstacles to effective communication with others. Even though the extended Mercury-Pluto trine serves up some important information and insights, we are likely to struggle as we try to put our insights into the proper context and effectively share them with others. Our thoughts may seem to lack important continuity, making it especially difficult to articulate to those around us what we see and believe. The atmosphere that is forming this week, under the extended Mars-Neptune square, is likely to be with us through the month of November. It is especially important this week to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground even though we may feel intense waves of optimism or even elation. With awareness, we will recognize that we are attempting to describe a vision that is not yet fully formed or, in some way or another, is actually indescribable to those around us. Our response may be to seek to isolate ourselves from others. Alternatively, we may be inclined to begin to adopt a rather manipulative approach, seeking to step in and 'take charge' in order to move our vision forward — whether or not we really have the support of those around us. In some cases, we may truly feel that we have the best interests of others in mind as we seek to show our compassion by offering our help and leadership. However, in this atmosphere, we are more likely to increase the confusion and find ourselves disappointed by the way our efforts are (mis)understood. There are major shifts and dramatic changes in the way that we relate to others that are neither easy or clear from the current vantage point. Faith and acceptance may well be our best tools in this atmosphere.

We are likely to feel that we are somehow 'on the fence' on Sunday as Mercury stations direct. Our most specific concerns may simply be centered on superficial appearances. Indecision eases on Monday but we will still need to use self-control and avoid trying to hit the ground running before we can clearly see a way forward. We may seem to see potential and possibilities everywhere on Tuesday. There is an undefined, vague sense of excitement the brings a great deal of optimism. Optimism expands on Wednesday, with exciting philosophical insights to go along with it. The creative power is increasing but we may find that it comes with some potential for chaos and confusion. While we may feel a great deal of internal clarity on Thursday, we are likely to struggle when trying to share that clarity with others. We will need to be honest about our weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Misunderstandings erupt on Friday. We are prone to making questionable judgements or working too hard to try to take charge and just 'handle' things. There may be some inclination to isolate on Saturday, perhaps in an attempt to try to insulate ourselves from the pain that we can see others are enduring. The lack of clear options could be extremely troubling.
