Absalom Underwater. Aspects of

Conjunction of Mercury: Not only is the absence of thought disturbing, but also in many cases its presence. Mercury gives the Planet in conjunction with it a strong mental coloring, even when it is completely unnecessary and undesirable for a person; for example, during the conjunction of Mercury with Venus, there will be so much calculation and sanity in a love relationship that any immediate feeling and living sensation will live very shortly, especially if Mercury is stronger than Venus. Unfortunately, the mental coloration is not identical to the mind, since most often it comes down to the widespread flat ideas and cliches of public consciousness and subconsciousness, which will actively influence the principle of the Planet, greatly schematizing and profaning it. A person will, of course, feel this, but all his attempts to get rid of such deadening (each time in its own way) influence of Mercury on the Planet by expanding the sphere of its manifestations (for example, the search for new lovers in the case of Venus) are doomed to failure, since the mind, although rude, but flexible, and can adapt and somehow simulate any phenomenon. The elaboration of the connection goes first of all through the study of Mercury, that is, the awareness of the role and meaning of mental activity as giving a general direction to energy flows and planetary principles, but not replacing them. Here, the elaboration is difficult, since it requires a restructuring of thinking, rejection of heavy, straightforward social clichés and a transition to work with lighter and more flexible thought forms capable of adequate interaction with the principle of the Planet. For example, the conjunction of Mercury with Mars with strong Mercury at a low level of elaboration gives not a person, but practically a robot, which must first simulate any active action in the head, completely unable to trust the feeling and logic of its direct energetic manifestations. Working out the aspect gives great creative abilities, manifested in the form of subtle and inventive indirect mental control of the principle of the Planet in those moments when it is necessary. Mars Conjunction: True gravity is invisible. True power is imperceptible. The conjunction with Mars gives the Planet a force that is destructive at a low level. The principle of the Planet seems to swell with energy, but, not being able to direct it constructively, it is most often realized in aggression and destruction. For example, the unworked conjunction of Mars with the Moon gives aggression to one’s own body, and with Saturn – extreme obstacles in attempts to self-penetration and concentration, for example, a window suddenly breaks with a clang and a soccer ball flies into the room. Here, working out goes not so much along the line of curbing your excess energy in the areas controlled by the Planet, although at first this skill is necessary, but along the path of refining the energy of connection, increasing the corresponding vibrations; for example, when Mars connects with the Moon, it is better not to develop muscles, but to learn how to manage psychic energy (the higher stages of hatha yoga, auto-training, etc.), and when Mars connects with Saturn, it is better to direct efforts not to fight temptations, distractions, etc. etc., but work on increasing the depth of concentration and the power of concentration. At a high level, Mars gives the Planet exactly the energy that it needs in each specific case, and qualitatively increases its creative capabilities, but this requires realizing the falsity of such an attractive principle as “strong means good” and eliminate the forceful subordination of the Planet to Mars, which is typical for low and medium levels, especially when Mars in the horoscope is stronger than the Planet (for example, when Mars and Venus are connected, a person for a long time feels and appreciates beauty only with an element of visible force).

Het Monster. Aspects of

Sharpness of mind, great spiritual energy. They like to participate in discussions, disagreements. Good for reporters, researchers. They speak openly their opinion; having made decisions, they consistently implement them. They love to compete and prove their superiority. With bad other aspects – a deceiver, a person of bad rules. Often portends death from a firearm, or at least a dangerous wound.

Catherine Aubier. Astrological Dictionary

Connection: a combination of intelligence and aggressiveness. Warlike and critical spirit. The mind directs and programs actions. Note. Some authors believe that the relative position of the planets in conjunction is of exceptional importance. If Mercury precedes Mars, then thought is considered to precede action; if Mars precedes Mercury, then the person acts before he can think. So, the connection can have a positive and negative value depending on the aspect.

Various sources for a child’s horoscope

Your child is given both a sharp mind and great spiritual energy. He shows a desire to learn, and learning will come easy for him. He can write beautifully. His mind is always ready to accept new discoveries, regardless of what is already open, and therefore he sometimes makes hasty judgments. He probably loves to argue, compete and prove the superiority of his views. At the same time, the way of expressing his thoughts is often harsh and direct. Parents need to teach him to focus and reach a compromise.
