On October 2nd, 2022, Mercury goes direct at 24° Virgo. Normally, Mercury direct is a reason for celebration. Things finally start to clear up, right?
Not quite. Mercury direct is opposite Neptune and square Mars. Mercury square Mars gives us a strong push to move forward. At the same time, Mercury is opposite Neptune, so we can’t see where we’re headed.
A good metaphor for this Mercury station is walking blindfolded. One advantage of being blindfolded is that we’re no longer distracted by ‘noise’ – and this is when we can tune it and listen.
