Mercury squares the Big Three today

Mercury is moving quickly through Taurus and today it forms a challenging square to the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Aquarius. Mercury is the processor of our experiences; it digests the stuff of our daily existence and converts it into usable data that can be run through the softwareof our mind.

The square is a challenging 90 degree formation and today it may be difficult to process the emotions that are springing forth as a result of the triple conjunction.  But as with any challenging aspect, the discomfort of the challenge forces us to find a way to mediate it and come up with a solution.

For the next couple of days don’t be alarmed if you are feeling somewhat distressed and unable to make sense of the way you feel.  Try to relax and listen to the voices of the mind and the heart, and see if there is a way to negotiate a compromise.

While Mercury is squaring off against the Big Three, it is also in a harmonious alignment (sextile) to Uranus, the planet of innovation and fresh ideas.  Mercury and Uranus are great allies and the presence of Uranus here adds more mental agility.  Listen to the intuition that comes at a moment’s notice, and follow its advice.

Chiron and Neptune turn retrograde

Neptune retrogrades around midnight tonight EDT, and Chiron follows on Friday.  These two planets have been linked since last summer although their tightest connection occurred this week.  (You can find other articles on the Chiron/Neptune conjunction here.)

The outer planets are considered the “transformational” planets because they create big change at the foundational level.  They also retrograde once a year, so it is not an unusual event to have Chiron and Neptune turning retrograde.  What makes this event more significant is that Chiron and Neptune are turning retrograde just at the point where they are as close to a conjunction (14 minutes apart) as they will be until they unite next February, and they are both changing direction on the same day.

When planets turn retrograde (meaning they appear to move backward from our perspective on Earth) their apparent motion slows down to a crawl in preparation for their retrograde turn and it is at these times, along with the slowdown before they change direction to move forward again, that their influence is at its most powerful.

When transiting planets are retrograde they urge us to look back and experience the matters of that planet on a more internal level.  The externalized experiences of our life become less important than the inner ones, so with Neptune retrograde we are drawn more into a personal relationship with spirituality and a practice that connects us more soulfully into our lives.  When Chiron is retrograde we have greater access to our inner emotional experiences.  Chiron encourages us to feel, feel, feel – and often forces the issue by pulling our blinders off where necessary to confront something painful within us.  With Chiron retrograde this experience becomes more personal and more internalized.

Any time Neptune is […]

Sunday Poetry for the New Moon Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction

Love Said to Me

I worship the moon.
Tell me of the soft glow of a
candle light
and the sweetness of my moon.

Don’t talk about sorrow,
tell me of that treasure,
hidden if it is to you,
then just remain silent.

Last night
I lost my grip on reality
and welcomed insanity.
Love
saw me and said,
I showed up.
Wipe your tears
and be silent.

I said, O Love
I am frightened,
but it’s not you.
Love said to me,
there is nothing that is not me.
be silent.

I will whisper secrets in your ear
just nod yes
and be silent.

A soul moon
appeared in the path of my heart.
How precious is this journey.

I said, O Love
what kind of moon is this?
Love said to me,
this is not for you to question.
be silent.

I said, O Love
what kind of face is this,
angelic, or human?
Love said to me,
this is beyond anything that you know.
Be silent.

I said, please reveal this to me
I am dying in anticipation.
Love said to me,
that is where I want you:
Always on the edge,
be silent.
You dwell in this hall of
images and illusions,
leave this house now
and be silent.

I said, O Love,
tell me this:
Does the Lord know you are
treating me this way?
Love said to me,
yes He does,
just be totally…
totally… silent

Astrological Commentary:

The New Moon in Gemini instills us with a deep desire to talk about our experiences – to make themselves known, and to process them through the conscious mind.

The first stanza of this poem, “I worship the moon. Tell me of the soft glow of a candle light and the sweetness of my moon,” reflects the sweet hopefulness of the combination of Jupiter and Neptune  – the longing (Neptune) for a […]

“Very bad mercury retrograde”

I had to laugh when I was looking at the stats and found that several people used this phrase to find this site.  I’ve had quite a few emails complaining about the intensity of this Mercury retrograde, and if the past week has been super-intense for you you’re not alone.

This Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction is kicking some serious butt, and ever since Mercury retrograded back into Taurus it’s been approaching a square to the triple conjunction.  So not only are we having communication difficulties, these difficulties are bringing up a host of other issues at the same time.  It doesn’t help that both Chiron and Neptune are slowing down as they prepare to change direction in a few days and that intensifies their effect.

Chiron makes it difficult to hide from ourselves, and Neptune makes it difficult to see things clearly. It’s a complicated combination of planets, and the square to Mercury challenges our ability to intellectualize and clarify the events in our lives.  There IS a purpose to all of this madness – to encourage us to live in truth and become ever more aware of the spiritual underpinnings of our lives.  Not always an easy thing to do on Planet Earth!

Mercury changes direction on May 31 which will bring some relief, but it will then move into position to square Chiron and Neptune once more on June 9.  This is serious soul work time, and that is never easy.

Unfriendly fire in the US military

A US soldier stationed at Camp Liberty in Baghdad has allegedly killed five fellow soldiers and wounded three others at a stress clinic which has been set up to handle cases of psychological problems.

Already there has been an eruption of news articles with revelations about friendly fireconditions on the US military and the increasing stress that servicemen are under from these long years of war.  Five soldiers in Iraq try to kill themselves every day.  Sexual assault cases are up 26%.  A 2007 FBI report on gang activity found members of virtually every known gang to be present in the military.

In mundane astrology, the study of planetary events on events and nations, the military is represented by Mars.  Mars in the US progressed chart has been sitting prominently in the tenth house of the US natal chart since 1942 reflecting the power of the military (Mars) in United States government (tenth house).  The crossing of progressed Mars over the US Midheaven coincides with the dramatic transformation of the military from a small defensive force to a large military industrial complex.

The US progressed Mars turned retrograde in the summer of 2006, just as one of the main architects of the Iraq war, Donald Rumsfeld, resigned from his post as Secretary of Defense.  The country has not been able to regain its footing since 2003 when the Iraq war began, and many astrologers (including this one) feel that the retrograde turn of the US Progressed Mars marks the weakening of the United States as a military power.

When Uranus enters Aries and begins to square Pluto in Capricorn, it is extremely likely that we will see the real military power lies in the splinter groups […]
