Mercury opposite Mars: A Caution and an Opportunity

Mercury opposes Mars today — a potentially volatile, challenging aspect feeding us directly into the cardinal grand cross (which is exact in one week, but we’re ‘in it’ now). At its most basic, Mercury opposite Mars says: talk it out, don’t argue it out.

Right in the thick of things: the Aries and Libra clusters as Mercury (green glyph with horns) in Aries opposes retrograde Mars (red arrow pointing up) in Libra. View glyph key here; read Eric's overview of the whole configuration from Monday here.

Right in the thick of things: the Aries and Libra clusters as Mercury (green glyph with horns) in Aries opposes retrograde Mars (red arrow pointing up) in Libra. View glyph key here; read Eric’s overview of the whole configuration from Monday here.

Exact at 7:15 am EDT, this is a continuation of Mercury on the cardinal grand cross (it aspected Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter Monday). Mercury is in Aries, across the zodiac from retrograde Mars in Libra.

The ‘horns’ on Mercury’s glyph signify fleetness of mind, yet in Aries, they also echo the ram’s horns. We can translate that into being headstrong, especially regarding ideas about oneself.

Mars in Libra can feel spread thin or diffused; imagine that person you know who is always trying to do everything but never seems to make efficient progress with any one thing. Retrograde in Libra, Mars is even more confounded. Mars wants more than simply to discover and understand the roots of our relationship tendencies; it wants to do something about what we find.

At its worst, Mercury opposite Mars is the perfect setup for frustrated desires and goals to get projected onto relationships with others; for subconscious hostility to come shooting out in a blaze of self-righteous combativeness; for actual physical accidents when behaving rashly or impulsively. It’s all accusation and reaction, but no reflective ‘I statements’.

Astrology Today: Oracle for Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Cancer weekly for Sept. 30, 2005

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

You may not be able to list all the reasons you feel safe, but beneath your minor worries and annoying concerns, you know your world is stable and secure. So, I want to suggest going for an improvement far beyond the basics, and spending some time this weekend concentrating on your real needs. Identify them and take some tangible action toward fulfilling them. Give the lower-order concerns a rest. Assume you have enough to eat and a roof over your head. Finish breakfast, walk out the door, and experiment with what it might feel like to be free.

Note, The Oracle is a random selection from the Eric Francis horoscope archives. Each day we publish one entry from among the 10,000 in our database. It’s a little slice of horoscope history — but chosen by our Oracle program, which always speaks to the present moment. New horoscopes are published each Friday plus twice a month in Planet Waves subscriber edition and Planet Waves Light.

Flip Side — Libra Lunar Eclipse

Think of this morning’s Libra Full Moon and total lunar eclipse as the flip side of Oct. 18 last year, and you will have a good start on understanding your astrology for the next two weeks. That’s because the Aries Sun and Libra Moon were today opposed from the same degrees of the same signs as they were on Oct. 18, 2013; except for having flipped sides of the zodiac.

Astrology by Len Wallick

About six months ago, it was the Sun at 25+ Libra, opposed by the eclipsed Moon at 25+ Aries. Today it was the other way around. Such a pairing of consecutive lunar eclipses does not happen very often.

The last time such a flip occurred so precisely was along the same sign axis.

The Oct. 8, 1995, lunar eclipse (which had the Moon at 14+ Aries and the Sun at 14+ Libra) was followed by an April 3, 1996, lunar eclipse at 14+ Libra opposed b the Sun at 14+ Aries.

That was was almost exactly 18 years ago, which corresponds closely to the amount of time it takes for the lunar nodes (where Sun and Moon meet or oppose to make eclipses) to make a complete circuit of the 12 signs.

Hence, you have some rational correlations as an alternative to irrational anxiety to work with. As you enter a two-week wormhole of big astrology, which will conclude with a Taurus solar eclipse on April 29, any grounds for being reasonable as opposed to fearful will serve you well.

Astrology Today: Oracle for Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Pisces weekly for July 12, 2007

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

Your relationship to your own history is taking on vivid overtones. Finally, the past is less of a burden and more of a resource, indeed, a trove of creative treasures that you have collected, built, woven and arranged with devotion and at times great effort. What you express in the coming weeks will be something entirely new, but in many ways it will be based on what you have accomplished previously. There is a parallel story developing in a romantic or erotic situation. You can count on the fact that you know yourself, and that you know what you want. This usually helps. Now you can also depend on your willingness to take a new kind of risk and experiment with something entirely fresh.

The Goddess Reveals Herself: Bursts of Aries and Libra

Note, Planet Waves FM will be updated Monday evening, on the eve of the Full Moon- total lunar eclipse. If you’re interested in the personal implications of this astrology, I suggest you listen to my  Welcome Notes for the Spring Reading, available free to all readers. That page also includes three samples of the readings.

OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS, we get to experience some spectacular astrology across the Aries-Libra axis. By axis, I mean that the polarity that spans from Aries to Libra is involved, the opposition of signs that covers the topics ‘I Am’ to ‘We Are’ and back again. When you consider how much of existence consists of exploring I and we, it’s easy to see that these are two signs that can sum up most of human experience.

I’ve provided several different visual views of this polarity in the charts mingled with this article. There are two primary events and many smaller ones in the mix. The primary events are Mercury in Aries joining the cardinal grand cross aspect, which aligns exactly on Monday.

Then on Tuesday, there is a total eclipse of the Moon in Libra, which happens at the Libra Full Moon. Eclipses are mighty events, moments when we mark the time of our lives on the longest measure. They are points of no return, when events accelerate and often seem fated. They can represent developments that involve many people, and that reach across any kind of boundary. There is almost always some experience of ‘the unexpected’, which somehow turns out to be obvious in hindsight.
