First Quarter Square
Here we have a crisis that demands action, but your choices (Gemini) may be vague (Pisces). It will be difficult to pinpoint the correct path and it may feel easier to not choose, or to simply drift along without looking at the facts. Nonetheless, you need to do something and that will require selecting A or B.
The Sun’s inferior conjunction to Mercury Rx (ruler of Gemini) can help, as it marks a point of clarity. This is the middle of Mercury’s retrograde, so something essential will be illuminated. Delays, shifting facts and hazy truths have led you to this point- pay attention to what’s revealed and use it in your First Quarter Square decision.
Mercury Rx trine the North Node means that overall, what you learn (and act on) today can take you in the right direction-towards a place that feels (Cancer) safe, authentic and fully aligned with what you need. This is the second of Mercury’s three trines to the North Node (the first one occurred on Feb 26th) so this is part of an ongoing process.
Note that the inferior conjunction is similar to a “New Moon” influence (it marks a new beginning) and will be connected to the “Full Moon” results of the previous superior Sun/Mercury conjunction from January 29th at 9 deg Aquarius.
Patient actions harmonize with rules and structure. In the Earth signs, this is the ultimate manifestation aspect as what you do can have physical, measurable results. There’s nothing dramatic here - slow and steady is the way to go. Work within the boundaries. Movement may be so slow that you question if any progress is being made, but you’ll know there’s progress if you can see/feel the results. Mars in Taurus favours building material security or working to make something grow.
This is about taking responsibility (Saturn) for what you want. If you don’t act and you don’t commit to the long- term, nothing will happen.
Consider how this relates back to the required action of the First Quarter Square - choose (Gemini) based on what’s revealed (Sun/Mercury), commit to that path then move forward carefully and deliberately.
