Today Mercury and Saturn help to temporarily stem the madness and intensity of Thursday’s impending Jupiter-Pluto square – the latest episode in the saga that is the Mercury T-square.
Together, they will encourage rational discussions and logical thinking – sorely needed, given the chaos of Uranus and the rash, rather impatient energy of Aries, which is currently so strong, given the stellium of planets located in this sign.
Saturn will certainly help to stablise any hurried schemes or last minute/ill thought through orders/announcements/ suggestions. This aspect is all about creating substantial, well-thought-out plans, policies and arguments that will stand the test of time.
It is worth mentioning that both planets will be in fire signs – the element most associated with both religious and creative inspiration. And indeed, according to the Renaissance astrologer, Marsilio Ficino, these two planets are both responsible for ruling different forms of thought. Mercury rules the mind and intellect, while Saturn rules higher forms of contemplation, usually reserved for religious and philosophical purposes, including meditation – and possibly also visualisation.
So use this transit to visualise what you’d like to manifest in the medium-term and then add weight to it with some affirmations. Thoughts can become things now, if you truly desire them to – and are prepared to make them happen.
