Mercury-Mars-Neptune in Aquarius: Winds of Change
Sunday February 20, 2011
We had almost summer weather here yesterday and I saw the first dragonfly of the season. Serendipitously, I picked the Dragonfly medicine card, which I think is a timely totem. From the Medicine Cards, "If you feel the need for change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation."
Later today, Mercury's mental waves align with both Mars and Neptune in air sign Aquarius. It's a stimulating conjunction, when veils drop, and more possibilities are revealed -- some that we'll be motivated to act on spontaneously.
This is all happening at 28 Aquarius, where Mars and Neptune meet to animate us with a drive to rise above what we're struggling with. The portal is the mind, with airy Aquarius, and being able to let rigid thinking patterns drop away. Your world changes because your vision has changed -- this is the magic of Dragonfly and these auspicious aspects in Aquarius.
Early this week, Mercury and Mars will be moving on into soul-seer Pisces, for even greater sensing of all the dimensions in play. A key to opening the doors of perception is being okay with that suspenseful place of the in-between. The old way of perceiving is being replaced, but the new is not fully defined. It's a great time to convey it through impressions, rather than analysis -- like through an art or craft medium, music, or dancing around your living room.
