Mercury-Uranus Conjunction

Mercury-Uranus Conjunction - Intellectual Insights

"Let us not envy those who stand higher than we do: what look like towing heights are precipices… Indeed there are many who are forced to cling to their pinnacle because they cannot descend without falling…"

— Seneca

The week begins with a Mercury-Uranus conjunction, also involving the asteroid Vesta. The presence of Vesta helps us to pare away unnecessary or unworkable elements and focus on important new information and new intellectual insights. We might hope that some intellectual insight and clarity begins to provide us with a more definitive sense of purpose. Unfortunately, we are more likely to struggle to clearly deliver our message or convey the insights that Mercury and Uranus are revealing. Venus joins Mars in Leo early this week, once again setting off the lingering effects of the fixed sign T-Square involving Jupiter and Pluto. Although Venus may not be nearly as abrasive as Mars, there are still likely to be plenty of vulnerabilities to sort through. As well, Venus begins to head towards the same quincunx that Mars made with Saturn last week, further exacerbating concerns over 'appearances' — what others think about us. We also continue to struggle to appropriately blend tangible, material concerns with spiritual principles — compassion, humility, acceptance. A three-way mutual reception between the Sun, Mercury, and Venus does help to to keep the unruly, confusing atmosphere somewhat under control. However, our individual personal environment is extremely important here. We are likely to find that we are quite impressionable and vulnerable to the attitudes and opinions of others. But if we spend too much time worrying about what others think, we'll miss some of the most important opportunities for growth that are offered. At times, there is a feeling that we are isolated inside of a rather fragile 'shell' or we may feel inclined to keep others 'at arms length' in order to guard our personal feelings. In fact, detachment may actually begin to help us to find some clarity and perspective. At times, a sense of mission takes over and gives us a clearer sense of purpose. By the end of the week, closeness and intimacy begins to feel rather dangerous or a threat to our individual freedom. Nonetheless, The Moon's transit through Pisces helps us to hear the 'still, small voice' of intuition, offering important clues about how to balance our concerns over tangible, material progress with a broader, spiritual perspective. When we set aside the intense concern on choosing the one proper course of action and simply deal with what is directly in front of us, our progress will be significant.

Our minds are activated on Sunday but it isn't easy to bring as much rational consideration as we would like. We aren't able to clearly articulate our message, leading to misinterpretation or manipulation. Material resources and personal 'status' are the major concern on Monday. Temptations and distractions keep us from finding our footing. A sense of 'mission' helps to keep us on track on Tuesday. Compassion and concern for others helps us to stay stabilized. We find some important detachment on Wednesday, giving us the chance to 'gather our wits'. However, our thinking may start to become somewhat rigid. There's a strong chance for some kind of 'rebel without a cause' situation on Thursday. We are especially impressionable and our general environment influences our overall perspective. There is finally some space for deeper and more thoughtful consideration on Friday. Individual isolation feels safer than working alongside of others. There is a desire to maintain an 'arms length' distance from others on Saturday. Closeness and intimacy may feel dangerous or a threat to our individual freedom.
