Saturday will be busy with not one but two Mercury aspects to guide and shape our experiences. Our mind is both swooning and jumping. Mercury Sextile Neptune provides insight and compassion to our point of view. Mercury Square Uranus will present a challenge to let go of an outmoded way of thinking.
Early in the day, Mercury and Neptune combine to help foster the expression of our creative and imaginative mind. We speak of dreams and inspire one another by our creative imagery. We find it easy to be appreciative of the beauty in and around us. This combination of thought and intuition can produce flashes of insight about some matter that we have been concerned with.
Later that day, Mercury and Uranus form a square that lays down a challenge. Patience will be a virtue here, as the excitability and eccentricity of Uranus can help us speak brilliantly but without regard for the feelings of another.
Mercury and Uranus encourage us to think "outside the box", so we could make progress if we harness this aspect and face the challenge to break up old thought patterns in ourselves and for one another.
But we can go too far, and be seen as just stirring up controversy for controversy's sake. We wish to demonstrate our independent mind, but we may do it with an overly strident tone, our argument could spin out of control.
Brilliance is a wonder to behold, but we always should remember that the advancement of true understanding requires mutual respect and tolerance. We cannot be both "right" and "rigid".
Consciousness is the result of shared experience. We lift our thinking by sharing our brilliant thoughts with one another. We can only do that in a space that respects each individual's contribution to the conversation.
