Words and actions unite, but Mercury’s Rx status means one or more of the following:
taking action on a conversation/idea from the past
questioning current actions (look behind the shine)
looking back intensifies the decision to act (it’s time)
a message from the past triggers anger/passion/assertiveness
In general, there’s increased thoughtfulness combined with bold/showy actions. There could be delays, but more likely the second look or question will prompt the actions. This can be a powerful way to manifest, provided you take note of what Mercury Rx is telling you.
Venus’ square to Chiron in Mars-ruled Aries adds another layer to the above. It would appear that the actions are happening in the face of a painful relationship, financial or self-esteem issue. Venus in Cancer is tender, and a hard aspect to Chiron means ultra-sensitive moments where you don’t get what you want (including empathy) or what you want reveals some very awkward feelings. Perhaps this is why Mercury is Rx when joined with Mars - it will be so important to slow down and proceed with care even if you’re asserting yourself with bold words.
However, Venus’ sextile to Uranus (in Venus-ruled Taurus) is hopeful. Despite the pain and tenderness, there’s room to progress, provided you focus on doing things for yourself and liberating yourself from stagnant habits/security needs. Taurus is about self-sufficiency and Uranus is about independence. These energies can support Venus who is (let’s be honest) sometimes quite helpless and needy in Cancer. Look at how you can become more self-sufficient.
And finally, Chiron stations Rx after the “ouch” with Venus. This echoes Mercury’s Rx - more reviews and intensifications. Whatever Venus/Chiron stirred up will amplify what hurts. Chiron Rx can press harder on the wound or force you to slow down and look inside. You can’t ignore it - it’s time to face the pain. You may be called on to display more courage, even though you feel weak. That “weakness” is the entry point and it’s where the healing begins.
Today is the day you assert yourself, with carefully chosen words, in the face of what hurts. Today is the day you take stock of why it hurts.
