Triple Conjunction of Mercury, Mars and Neptune!! Now we're talking... and thinking... and acting on our dreams.
A conjunction, like a New Moon, marks a time of beginnings. It is a release of a seed of new inspiration for the coming cycle of the planets which are at the conjunction. But here we have a special case, a triple play of energies, messages and inspiration. So, what are to make of this triple alignment?
Mercury and Mars speeds up your mind and nervous system with an infusion of energy. You can become so excited that you definitely need to be reminded that the most important part of speaking is.... listening. Make sure that your eagerness does not lead you into "foot in mouth" syndrome. Be excited, sure. But lose your impatience. You are sharper, faster and more assertive now. But let the measure of your message be in its thoughtfulness not volume.
Mercury and Neptune combine to infuse your mind with a greater lucidity. You can pierce beyond the here and now so as to see what might be or be possible. Listen carefully for the whisperings of spirit now. Find a quiet place for meditation and contemplation. Enjoy the beauty around and within yourself. Truly experience the oneness of all life and be prepared for the third conjunction...
Mars and Neptune conjoin to stimulate your imagination and capacity for self-less action. Usually the energies of Mars are devoted to self-assertion, but Neptune is about compassion, empathy and sacrifice. So what are you to do? What you must realize is that a major reason for the development of a strong self is exactly in order to create the capacity to sacrifice your "self" for something greater than yourself. The alignment of Mars and Neptune inspires you to seek to take strong, inspired and self-less actions. You must continue to learn to be self-assertive in non self-centered ways.
Sacrificial action is called for now. But remember, the word sacrifice means "to make sacred"; you give up the lesser in your life for that which is greater. Honor your core principles by acting in fellowship with those who share them with you. The greatest good comes from the action that is taken without personal attachment to the outcome for oneself. Join your companions with whom you share this vision of a better world. Help one another to bring your dreams (Neptune) to life (Mars). Now is the time: "All for One, and One for All!"
