Retrograde Mercury conjunction Jupiter in Aquarius 14th February 2021

Retrograde Mercury is conjunction Jupiter at 13 degrees 21 minutes Aquarius at 9.40 pm GMT 14th February 2021.

A look back at subjects or ideas that have gained your interest will help you to broaden your comprehension of them. For big and bold plans that are innovative or out of the ordinary, this transit provides the chance to review them in more detail, rather than just seeing the big picture. Getting carried away with your enthusiasm when creating plans is not wise, because there is the possibility you could promise more than you can deliver. Mainly, this is a good transit for gathering information and knowledge from sources you wouldn’t normally seek. What you learn may alter your beliefs and opinions.

Retrograde Mercury conjunction Venus in Aquarius 13th February 2021

Retrograde Mercury is conjunction Venus at 14 degrees 42 minutes Aquarius at 7.49 am GMT 13th February 2021.

Attention is drawn to the desire to reconnect with friends or acquaintances you haven’t contacted for a while. Whether this happens or not is another matter, but the idea springs into your mind. Discussions veer towards being trivial and pleasant with little interest in arguments or heated debates. An open mind is encouraged in the choice of subject matter, but don’t expect any drawn out and passionate debates. Technology is the main medium for interaction, which has a higher that usual chance of having a few glitches. They’re not going to be seriously disruptive, just a bit of a nuisance. This transit can be useful for planning social events, holidays, weddings or parties in the future when there is the freedom for them to take place.

Retrograde Mercury in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus 10th February 2021

Retrograde Mercury at 17 degrees 43 minutes Aquarius is square Mars at 17 degrees 43 minutes Taurus at 12.16 pm GMT 10th February 2021.

People could become very irritable for the strangest reasons, so tread carefully if you want to or have to be assertive. A plan of action that would normally be reliable can hit obstructions or be disrupted by glitches, which will be really frustrating. Schedules may have to be postponed or restructured to adapt to unforeseen or extraordinary events. This is a blow if the speed of progress has been slow, but once in a while disruption is necessary to speed things up a bit, no matter how demanding it will be. Also during this transit there can be an increase in delays or accidents when travelling, so be extra vigilant and prepared for the possibility not all will run smoothly.

Retrograde Mercury conjunction Sun in Aquarius 8th February 2021

Retrograde Mercury is conjunction the Sun at 20 degrees 1 minute Aquarius at 1.48 pm GMT 8th February 2021.

Review how you interact with people and the overall outlook you have on life to see what progress can be made. You can make plans for what needs to be adapted and where you want more freedom of expression, but try to wait until Mercury goes direct before you discuss what you plan to do. Plenty of consideration can be given to what you’re able to change and how to think differently about your sense of identity and how it affects your self-esteem. Reassess how you express your opinions and have the confidence to share your point of view. It’s possible you will have less concern with what others think of you, which may cause a few problems but it’s nothing you can’t handle.

Mercury in Aquarius square retrograde Uranus in Taurus 12th January 2021

Mercury at 6 degrees 43 minutes Aquarius is square Uranus at 6 degrees 43 minutes Taurus at 3.00 pm GMT.

How reform and technological advances progress won’t go as quickly as is required. Obstructions which disrupt innovation have to be cleared first. Following a normal schedule will be difficult to the point of being near impossible due to unpredictable events that haven’t necessarily have been planned for. If there is a silver lining for this transit, there can be moments of genius that wouldn’t happen if there were not complications to be resolved or hurdles to leap over. However, getting these ideas and solutions heard and taken into account by others will be a struggle.

Mercury conjunction Jupiter in Aquarius 11th January 2021

Mercury is conjunction Jupiter at 5 degrees 16 minutes Aquarius at 5.20 pm GMT 11th January 2021.

Broadening your understanding of events or current personal circumstances that are very different from what has been encountered before, requires an open mind to what could be considered to be strange ideas. There is a greater interest in a wide range of various opinions and theories that at times may contradict each other. When they are all taken into consideration can help to make sense of unusual incidents. Drawing upon the wisdom of those who are independent or possibly eccentric could be especially important; what they say should not be easily dismissed. Overlooking details is not recommended as this could be vital to avoid a shock in the near future.

Mercury in Saturn in Aquarius 10th January 2021

Mercury is conjunction Saturn at 2 degrees 41 minutes Aquarius 3.18 am GMT 10th January 2021.

Freedom of access to information could be restricted, but this is not necessarily for malicious reasons. It can be for the purpose to make sure it’s accurate and to lower the risk of misinterpretation or panic. Those in a position of authority will have to be innovative in how they communicate and in how they decide to share their knowledge to keep pace with fluctuating circumstances. What they say should be carefully considered to avoid rebellion from those who don’t take kindly to their liberties being restrained. Detailed planning to be prepared for current events that can take unexpected twists and turns is especially important.

Mercury in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus 9th January 2021

Mercury at 1 degree 0 minutes Aquarius is square Mars at 1 degree 0 minutes Taurus at 2.45 am GMT 9th January 2021.

You may be able to have interesting ideas about what you would like to do, but actually putting them into practice will be a struggle. The information you receive could contradict what can or will be done; theories will be at odds with practicality. Unexpected comments could lead to disagreements or arguments that take a while to simmer down. Also there is an increased risk of accidents occurring, so pay extra attention to how you think and act.

Mercury conjunction Pluto in Capricorn 5th January 2021

Mercury is conjunction Pluto at 24 degrees 19 minutes Capricorn at 12.56 am GMT 5th January 2021.

An analysis of the psychological restrictions you place upon yourself, which feed self-doubt, melancholy and inhibitions can transform your mind. Working hard at what you should change will enable you to learn a lot about yourself. This strengthens your ability to persevere where previously you would have given up. Your mental energy may be focused and spent on what needs to be overhauled. It’s a good idea to be cautious and think carefully about which option to take. If a serious approach needs to be taken this is the time to take it. There may be verbal power struggles that can be quite intense; they also have the potential to alter the opinions of those involved. This can drastically change or destroy lines of communication.

Mercury in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces 1st January 2021

Mercury at 18 degrees 29 minutes Capricorn is sextile Neptune at 18 degrees 29 minutes Pisces at 11.19 am GMT 1st January 2021.

A calm and cautious frame of mind enables you to make sense of what would normally be confusing. Common sense and care used before you speak, and when you interact with people can be useful if you have to be inspired in how you deal with attempted deception. Practicality in your effort to bring what you dream of into reality will enhance your chances of successfully attaining what you seek. Rationality enables you to deal with any lack of clarity by going with the flow and adapting to lots of minor changes where the outcome is uncertain.
