The Mercury/Vesta conjunction activates yesterday’s Vesta/Ceres square.
“Vesta in Pisces wants to withdraw and contemplate while Ceres in Sag wants to overwhelm with expansive care and protection. Vesta in Pisces is pure and spiritual (or magical) while Ceres in Sag can trample over sensitivities in the rush to nurture (and the rush to do what’s best).”
Mercury/Vesta indicates absolute focus on a spiritual idea or a dream - gazing at what can’t be fully seen or devoting yourself to a compassionate/ethereal concept. Meditating on the whisper. The square to Ceres suggests this information will clash with expansive (and loud) attempts at nurturing. Someone may be saying “No” to caring efforts or disagreeing with a philosophy of mothering. Basically, yesterday’s tension is put into words as the quiet voice disagrees with the bold proclamation of nurturing.
The Mars/Uranus conjunction in the final degree of Aries indicates a last chance to break away, fight or escape. This volatile energy demands freedom to act but it’s easy to get carried away and take unwise risks.
Something needs to end (or be ignited) but remember that this energy can be accident-prone if mishandled. Impulse control is nonexistent. The opposition to Pallas suggests sudden actions will disrupt a social or relationship strategy. There may be impatience with the polite approach or a powerful desire to burn through the niceties and assert the truth/your will.
There’s potential for positive and negative here. Much depends on what’s being burnt away. Carefully consider what you’re asserting and why. Is it really necessary to burn that bridge? It might be, but know that what you set fire to will be gone for good - even if you’re igniting a new beginning, the fuel will be artifacts from the past.
Combined with Mercury/Vesta’s focus, we have an interesting mix of hot and cool. Calm and agitated. Actions are incendiary but thoughts and words can help you see beyond the heat or anger. Pay attention to the quiet voice - what’s it saying?
