As the eclipse energy continues to ripple through the collective, I hope you continue to receive insight around your purpose, your big dreams, your long term plans. The eclipse story isn’t over yet. While the Sun has moved on into Virgo, Mars and Mercury make a conjunction at the end of this week (September 3rd) right on the eclipse degree, reactivating the eclipse themes. And with Mercury still retrograde, we don’t yet have all the information. Mars conjunct Mercury on this degree speaks to courageously, boldly, going after your biggest dreams, speaking your truth, and sharing your vision with others, even as the details are still falling into place.
With all this energy in your house of romance, pleasure, and creative self-expression, I sure hope you’re enjoying the last days of summer. This energy is passionate, romantic, and playful. Next weekend is an opportune time to make your move–ask someone out, share your ideas for a creative new venture, speak your truth.
Mars conjunct Mercury on the eclipse degree may be an opportunity communicate assertively to your family, or to talk to a friend or counselor about your family and early childhood. It may also indicate a confrontation with family that will reveal some area that requires attention in order to make the most of the eclipse energy.
