“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.” — Carl Jung
Mercury enters Pisces today at 8:37 PM EST and conjuncts Neptune shortly after midnight on Feb. 14, 2012 here on the East Coast of the US. Followed by a conjunction to Chiron and sextile to Jupiter on Feb. 16, 2012.
Currently Mercury is the last degree of Aquarius, minutes away from forming an exact trine to Saturn in Libra. This aspect is bringing a chance to clear the air and reach a solid understanding of situations and what we can do to readdress a balance. Listen as well as speak and you can gather crucial information, allowing for compromise within differing opinions to find a solution that world.
Also given tomorrow is Valentine’s day, it would be helpful to be aware of the energy we are under. Aside from other aspects, currently the Moon is in Scorpio and will be tomorrow as well. At best things could get rather poetic, steamy, intimate and passionate. But a Scorpio Moon suggests there are likely to be rather intense perhaps darker emotions to confront as well. If what you want is closeness, do what you can to surrender resentment and emotional baggage, only then there can be true intimacy.
Venus is also currently approaching a square to Pluto (exact on February 15, 2012) amping up the intensity. Venus-Pluto aspects can often bring rather obsessive feelings to the forefront. But squares point to an inner resolution and this aspect asks an inner surrender, acceptance and acknowledgment of one’s desires rather than holding on to expectations, especially when it comes to love. Happiness or contentment, is an inner state of being. If we give away this power to external factors, or needing things to be a certain way before we can feel whole or happy, we are inevitably setting ourselves up for disappointment. Love “needs” nothing. It just is.
Mercury is the planet that represents primarily the ‘mind,’ thought processes and communication. Over the coming three weeks as Mercury transits through Pisces at best this can be a rather poetic, creative, imaginative, intuitive and perhaps even psychic influence allowing one to dive deeper into the mysteries of the infinite and that which is otherwise unseen and hidden behind the veil of illusion. But Pisces also has it’s shadow side bringing us under the influence of deception, denial, drugs or other intoxicants, illusions and delusion.
