Today, the planet that symbolizes thinking and the left, rational side of the brain, is sidling up with the Sun, the center of our solar system. And both are in Scorpio, the sign many either fear or don’t understand, so what does this mean?
Traditionally, Mercury is said to be combust by being too close to the hot rays of Sun, giving an inability to see the other side of the coin. In the sign of extremes, Scorpio, this magnifies.
So today, it’s a good day to ask: can I see the other side of an issue? Are my views limited? Is my thinking taken over by an overwhelming idea or maybe a person who clouds my thinking?
While Sun conjunct Mercury can give a sharp mind and powerful speech or writing, it’s good to remember there’s always another viewpoint, and from their perspective, it’s just as valid as yours.
