The only two planets closer to Sun than Earth have started our week in tandem. Venus entered its rulership in Taurus earlier today and will consummate the ingress with a sextile to Neptune tomorrow. Mercury conjoined Uranus in fiery Aries this morning and is a day away from linking up with nearby Vesta. The combined activity of Mercury and Venus symbolize an inner and outer environment rich in energetic possibility but needing your conscious contribution to achieve its potential within your life.
The potential of your inner and outer worlds right now is in its sheer energy. The question is whether that energy will be wasted in reaction, or function as a stimulation to creativity. Mercury is well positioned to support a stimulated mind.
In fact, Mercury in Aries is a stimulated mind. The quality of Aries is cardinal, which confers a sense of initiative. The element of Aries is fire, which easy to understand as something light and energetic. As you have probably noticed already, this morning’s conjunction of Mercury with Uranus takes the mental quickening up a notch. That’s because Mercury and Uranus share a symbolic connection with electricity and sudden events. Your simply reacting to a rapid pace and galvanizing occurrences will accomplish little more than burning you out. Vesta is on the scene in Aries to help with managing the inner combustion.
Vesta’s discovery chart for March 29, 1807 has both Sun and Mercury in Aries, so the origin of its identity in our consciousness (Sun) and its function in our thinking (Mercury) resonates with Vesta’s current placement in the cardinal fire. In addition, Vesta’s very name has a legendary connection with the management and conservation of vital energy within a structure. That’s because the Roman temple to Vesta was where a sacred flame was kept and cared for, symbolic of the hearth flame, which for most of human history has represented home on Earth.
