Mercury/ Saturn Square
Happy Saturday, the day ruled by Saturn. The karmic taskmaster is currently square Mercury, the messenger God, on a very sensitive and karmic point [ 9 degrees Virgo]. Today you may feel frustrated at the urge to understand reality. There may be deep conflict which you are concerned with understanding. You may be waiting for a message or communication dialog regarding something serious. Try not to strive and worry too much about material objects as they will come your way when the time is right. Saturn will only bind you into mental anguish and frustration -- so give things time to manifest and unfold.
Mercury is also currently in rulership helping us assimilate information. He is the magi and has a mysterious quality sending messages/ secrets through each and everyone of us. If you look at his symbol he wears a crown, which represents the higher mind. Mercury serves as a bridge between consciousness and manifestation. We can either immerse ourselves in the darkness of Saturn's limitations and darkness or we can use our active consciousness to free ourselves. Perception is reality and only you have the power to transform your human experience. Be your own alchemist today and transform your darkness into light, your metal into gold. Liberate your mind, transcend Saturn's rings and be in your power!
Here is a Mantra for Saturn which can be chanted to connect to the mysterious cosmic keeper:
"Om Sanaischaraya vidhamhe, Sooryaputraya dhimahi, tanno manda prachodayat"
When translated the mantra means, " I bow down to slow-moving Saturn, whose complexion is dark blue like nilanjana ointment. The elder brother of Lord Yamaraj, he is born from the Sun god and his wife Chaya."
