1/29 ~ Mercury (mind, thoughts & ideas) ~conjunct~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This activation takes you into the depths of your own mind & consciousness, deepening all communications. You may find yourself obsessing over something, either by yourself or in an attempt to convey something to another. Superficial, quick once-overs, trying to keep things ‘light’ will not likely be possible with this energy. You may feel determined to dig deeper until you get to the core or base issue. It’s good for soul-searching when it’s a genuine desire to know the truth, rather than to evade it. It’s not-so-good when you’re obsessing over someone or something which no longer serves you (or your Highest good). The challenge with this energy is the tendency to be really intense and locked-in on your own point of view, which is no less valid, but often this type of mental intensity blinds you to something obvious that you overlooked because you were not being objective, but being driven by much deeper (possibly unconscious) emotions. Your intensity is capable of influencing others but be aware of the difference between sharing information and trying to “convince, convert or cajole” others, as that can naturally attract challenges & opposition. Remember, the opposite can also be true, where you’re on the receiving end of this intense energy from someone else (trying to convince you). The best way to use this energy, as it doesn’t really last that long, is to turn that intensity toward Self, peel the layers to your own Truth & Purpose. The channels are open for a time and you can communicate and receive information from the deepest part of your SoulSelf. This is an Initiation.
1/31 ~ Mercury (lower mind & ideas) ~square~ Uranus (Higher Mind & awakening):
This energy challenges you to expand your mind or consciousness in a way, pushing you to think differently and respond to information in new ways. Uranus brings sudden ah-ha moments, personal awareness and radical new ideas, which is great for you adventurous souls who thrive on change and new ideas. However, if you are personally attached to your routine and things ‘going as planned’, then this energy can cause aggravation and tax your nervous system because things will seem sudden (even though it is more likely that they have already been brewing under the surface for some time now). You will have to adjust and be more open & mentally flexible than usual. You may not be able to control the excessive mental activity or information-overload coming in, but hopefully you can direct it a bit. It’s good to activate or clean your personal filters by taking some time in Nature to process things at your own pace and generally clear your head. This can be a very inspiring & creative time, so try to tune into that, while keeping in mind that anything you begin or get into, may require a review later so you can check over the details of your revelations (or creations). You’re just cracking the surface, this is all about the revelation or awakening, you will eventually have to figure out the logistics or effective actions necessary to bring your ideas into form.
2/2 ~ Mercury (expression) ~square~ Jupiter (truth):
This energy challenges you to integrate your smaller vision with the larger vision for your life. On one hand, you can see the big picture in new ways, but on the other hand, you may not be very interested in the details that bring it about. This is another good one for expanding your consciousness and thinking outside the box, but as the insights come into your conscious awareness, be mindful of the steps it will take to make your ideas a reality. This activation is also great for course-corrections where your ideas are concerned and will open you up to learning something new or bring in a crucial piece of information, just keep in mind that you will have to stabilize anything you start and probably have to review some details down the road because of something you overlooked in your enthusiasm for the new Truth revealed from within.
NOTE: I wanted to remind you how Jupiter opposite Uranus and both squaring Pluto is happening in the sky, affecting everyone one way or another. With Mercury triggering all three this week, it brings it down to human size and makes it much more literal and personal for us, especially if you have Aries/Libra/Cancer or Capricorn animated within you. Try to expand your thinking here, reflect on last year or two because Mercury retrograded through Capricorn on the cusp of both 2016 & 2017 giving us two chances to re-wire our thinking in ways that will allow the social/collective shifts to be integrated with more ease & grace and our individual lives to be more of a true reflection of our Truth & Purpose.
This may be the week where you take that deep dive that cracks your heart open and allows you to expand both your consciousness and your life in ways that have never been possible before now. I would encourage meditation, quiet reflection and pay attention to your dreams, all ways your own SoulSelf tries to communicate with you, when you make time to listen and receive. Mercury acts as a transmitter, activating communication between you and your deepest SoulSelf (Pluto), your unique brilliance (Uranus) and newly awakened consciousness (Jupiter). Being activated in the Cardinal Signs implies choices & actions based on your practical assessment of what you can maintain and actually want to be responsible for and what is non-essential and ready to be composted for better use down the road. Tune in, ask for messages, then sit back & receive.
