If you are like me, feeling overwhelmed and generally frustrated is part of life right now. Mercury in Leo is moving at a crawl preparing to station direct next Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on your location; whilst Mars in Libra is rapidly closing on Saturn in Libra with that exact conjunction on 15 August. Richard Nolle of Astropro covers this situation in his August 2012 forecast.
Mercury will be stationing at 1° Leo, inconjunct Neptune in Pisces (the inconjunct will be exact twice . . . once just before Mercury stations on 3 August and once just after it goes direct on 11 August). So if your thinking is muddled, that’s why. Yesterday my Aries hubby and I had a classic Mercury muddle moment. He was thinking one name and said another, something most of us do from time to time. I took the info as accurate and caused a string of miscommunications, resulting in some apologies and back tracking. Meh
As for Mars in Libra, it will move into serious contention with Saturn in Libra early next week and remain there practically until it enters Scorpio on 23 August. Mars is an active planet with its energy directed outward and thusly tends to activate transits sooner. The conjunction between Mars and Saturn takes place at 24° Libra. Those most affected will be people with personal planets and Angles in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) from 21 to 29 degrees.
Since this conjunction is in Libra, it is our one-on-one relationships where we may experience the most frustrations. Minor disagreements can easily escalate into something more serious and we may find out just how committed we are to staying in the relationship. Some could kiss and make up whilst others will call it a day and go their separate ways. Due to the general information muddle caused by Mercury dancing with Neptune, breakups might be caused by the truth coming out . . . painful lessons.
Be careful out there and always pay attention to what’s going on around you! Some of those frustrations could be due to sheer inattention. Listen actively before choosing to react too. Play nice, people.© Copyright 2012 Diane L, All rights Reserved. Written For: Libra Seeking Balance
