Mercury conjunct Saturn (with a Yod and more) 2015-11-24

Late in the U.S. on November 24th (and in the early morning hours for the EU/UK), Mercury conjunct Saturn perfects.  We note that Saturn and Neptune are so close to perfecting their first square, that Mercury square Neptune perfects only two hours later (after midnight in all time zones except PST).  Therefore, both should be discussed.  And, a Yod is in play, the Moon is at almost exactly 170 degrees from the Sun (with the Full Moon of November 2015 perfecting the next day), and a number of other patterns are perfecting and dissolving on the 24th and 25th.  We show this chart filtered for the Yod in play at time of perfection:

We note that the apex of the Yod is found at the South Node, associated both with old, well worn habit patterns and “taking the easy way out.”  It is “doing things the way we have always done them,” and it is a bit like Vesta.  However, the South Node is also about a failure to make progress.  One leg of this yod ties to Juno (wives, sisters, and women in similar roles as well as issues of trust and betrayal) and the other leg of the yod ties to Astraea (law and the legal system).  If you have been treacherous with someone, are you going to make amends with them, or are you going to do battle with them in the legal system?  Please do note that you will have a strong tendency to do whatever it is you have done in the past, and doing something different may prove difficult despite the idea, “in theory,” that you have a choice.

That said, the actual aspect, Mercury conjunct Saturn, is rather famous for being able to complete detailed and meticulous work.  But Saturn is near perfection of a square to Neptune, and this means that Mercury square Neptune perfects within a few hours.  In a natal chart, Mercury square Neptune tends to be associated with alcohol and drug abuse.  It can be associated with lying and deception.  But it is also a superb aspect for writing poetry, lyrics, possibly fiction, photography, and videography.  If you find it difficult to sleep tonight, maybe you should review the detail work you wisely did before perfection of this aspect and look for the poetry in it.  Failing that, simply write some poetry or maybe perform some creative photography.  This is a good window and a good use for such things.  Moving beyond the messiness of Mars quincunx Neptune earlier in the day is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if you have learned the lesson you needed to learn and can move forward.

Keep in mind that the Full Moon perfects tomorrow, and if you possibly can you want to bring to a close the important steps in any project you are trying to grow at this time.
