Another big alignment today concerns the Inferior Conjunction of the sun and Mercury retrograde (activating 22 degrees of Sagittarius at 5:50pm). The designation “Inferior Conjunction” is an astronomical term utilized because Mercury is now between the sun and the Earth. The eminent astrologers Dr. Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar referred to this stellar event as a New Mercury – when earth dwellers can open their minds to absorb cosmic seed-ideas and eventually develop them into ingenious literary, artistic, educational, scientific and business projects.
Just remember to capitalize when you speak of our planet like all of them. Earth, Venus, Mars, Jupiter etc. As for Astrology, helped to create the science of Astronomy.
