Ch-ch-ch-changes! Mercury just entered Libra, and there are radical aspects happening that continue to keep the Grand Irrationality into motion!
Mercury entered Libra 10:38 pm PDT Sept 1, 6:38 am BST Sept 2. This is significant, since Mercury is no longer one of the final dispositors at this time. It now is the dispositor of the Sun, and is disposed of by Venus in Leo, itself disposed of by the Sun. So now we have this “daisy chain” of dispositors influencing planets in Leo, Virgo, and Libra.
As I’ve explained in previous Lunation articles, Mars in Scorpio is the other final dispositor, ruling Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto. So power is no longer concentrated and shared between Mercury and Mars, and is now shared in a broader sign spectrum.
Of note is that right now, Mercury is at 1 Libra, Mars is at 23 Scorpio, Jupiter is at 11 Leo, and Neptune is at 7 Pisces. Mercury is septile Mars and Jupiter and triseptile Neptune. Mars is biseptile Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is triseptile Neptune. These aspects trigger the Grand Irrationality, and light up 4 zones in our charts in this powerful configuration of non-rational energies creating "forks in the road of destiny" across many areas of our lives.
This is setting a lot into motion, and influences all planets, angles, and houses in our charts involving Aries, Gemini, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Those most affected have a planet or angle in these approximate zones: 18-22 Gemini, 9-11 Leo, 30 Virgo-4 Libra, 22-26 Scorpio, 14-18 Capricorn, 5-7 Pisces, and 26-30 Aries.
So yesterday, today, and tomorrow, a huge swath of our reality is at a turning point! Expect important ideas, communications, opportunities, and anything that spurs you to act in the NOW to create momentum for a better future. As per the first line of this article, “turn and face the strange!”
Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter triggered the Pluto leg of the Grand Irrationality at last week’s New Moon at 3 Virgo. Go to those articles to find out more about the purification or penetrating insights that “set up” the current triggers. Because it now drops Pluto and includes Neptune, collective consciousness is affected by the current shifts, decisions, realizations, and momentum.
This is a huge turning point in all our lives. Visualize the ideal, play with ideas, focus the magnetism, and stand for what you believe in, even if the storm has been swirling around you. This is the time to get “the clear light of high realization.” You have nothing to lose but your fear.
