Friday at 11:53 pm EDT, Mars stations direct in Virgo. We are in the thick of the Mars station, after a long, fascinating, fruitful, and frustrating retrograde that began in late January. By most accounts, the past few days have been characterized by issues typical of a Mercury station — but with an additional edge of aggression or anxiety. Therefore, please make an extra effort to be kind to people, in word and deed.
Why does Mars making a move feel like Mercury acting up? Maybe because Mars is in a Mercury-ruled sign. Mercury, for its part, is still just coming out of a recent retrograde, and astrologers would say it’s ‘acting shadowy’ — meaning that we’re getting an after-effect of the Mercury retrograde that lasted from March 12 through April 4.
