Mercury in Leo will oppose Jupiter Rx and Chiron Rx in Aquarius, setting up the stage for a confrontation of our personal thoughts and agenda with the ways we seek to grow, expand and find meaning in life, arranged according to our social preconditioning, we know we need to break free of if we want to see the light at the end of the tunnel and recover from previous hurt. Thus, we might have to make a decision in favor of an alternative solution for our Self-unfoldment when Venus in Gemini will square Ceres in Virgo and our ‘methods’ will be put to a test for critical evaluation of their worth and effectiveness. The Moon’s Sagittarius ingress later on could shift our mood from obsessively brooding or plotting to openly and enthusiastically playing with the possibilities.
The “beer summit”, dismissed by President Obama as an ‘exaggeration’ of his meeting with Gates and Crowley, served as a great example for the daily energy weather. Obama remarked that they’ll be having “some personal conversation among people who are imperfect (inclusive himself) to spend a little bit of time with self-reflection and recognizing that other people have different points of view.” – Here, we have the opposition between Mercury in Leo and Jupiter Rx + Chiron Rx in Aquarius beautifully crafted in one sentence with the opposition working with its positive potential for integration and reconciliation of the issue. Then, the president went on to say: “The hope in turn is that people in communities across the nation will see the meeting as a model for how to solve differences – more listening, less shooting from the lip. – The latter is a reference to Chiron who got shot with an poisoned arrow by the hero. Venus’ in Gemini’s square to Ceres in Virgo is also contained in the message: “the meeting as a model for how to solve differences”.
As Venus moves on to form a sextile with Pallas in Leo on July 31, and Mercury in Leo’s next aspects are an opposition to Neptune Rx in Aquarius and a quincunx to Uranus Rx in Pisces, the first round of an eye-opening dialogue on race came to a gracious conclusion as both sides – the white police officer and the black scholar – agreed to disagree and pledged future talks aimed at a better understanding. The president expressed confidence that things will take a positive turn: “what brings us together is stronger than what pulls us apart”. So, while the 3 men clearly moved forward in regard to this issue and in the words of Gates: “I don’t think that we spent too much time dwelling on the past. We spent a lot of time discussing the future.” – it is still unclear how the public will react and thus if the message will create the waves it was supposed to – Mercury-Neptune – to bring about a collective shift in consciousness in this matter – BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD – Mercury in Leo quincunx Uranus Rx in Pisces.
So, today we have a chance to employ a mental strategy that can assist us in agreeing to disagree and consciously accepting that we might not be on the same page with others on some issues and that we can’t change that, but have to proceed from there with the awareness of our individual differences to make the future a better place for all of us.
