Mars in Sagittarius trines Mercury in Aries, at 5 degrees. Mercury doesn't need any encouragement to speak up in this sign, but just in case, Mars is offering some. Challenging declarations and "let's just do this" ideas will be fueled by the desire for freedom, by a crusade, or by intolerance of restrictions.
Chiron conjoins the Pisces South Node, at 21 degrees. Ceres will also be part of this conjunction. Here is a moment of major release, as the ache of loss reaches a peak, and then fades. Ceres plus Chiron suggests the wounded mother, or caring for the wounded. It's time to finish it and accept that there's someone/something you cannot hold onto. For the alchemists and healers who are able to transmute Chiron's pain into something more, this can signal the shift into Virgo North Node territory: a diagnosis or prescription.
Note that Mercury (ruler of the North Node) can encourage goodbyes or solutions, thanks to assertiveness and impatience with the past.
