CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #191 -- Natal Mercury Mars Connections
October 21, 2020

The month of November 2020 is marked by 3 planetary stations (denoting that by the end of the month only Uranus and Chiron will be retrograde).

Things will start to move forward more and more (yes, things are accelerating more and more), become more and more visible in the external world.

Additionally, there is also a Lunar Eclipse and the heavy Jupiter-Pluto conjunction to round of the month's most powerful "influencers."

Also take note that Saturn is slowly approaching the position it held in March 2020 and is nearing 29° Capricorn, a so-called "critical degree" representing endings, emergencies and more (to be described in the next Love Letter)...

Keep your head cool, don't cling to the "systems" and try be in the world, not of the world ;)

Love. Always.

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around November 5-6, 12, 18 and/or 25.

During this month of November, the following planetary configurations will affect some birthdays in particular:
  • If you are born around February 12, March 29, May 14, June 30, August 16, October 1, November 16 or December 31, this month may bring isolation, separation, being alone.

    You feel reluctant to relate or contact others.

  • If you are born around February 9, March 25, May 10, June 26, August 12, September 28, November 12 or December 26, this month may bring some health issues and you may feel weak.

    Some of you may disappear or go hiding.

    If you are a woman, your husband may go hiding or might be missed.

  • If you are born around January 5, February 18, April 3, May 19, July 5, August 21, October 7 or November 21, this month may bring a huge transformation, a milestone or turning point in your life.

    Chances are, there is no way back.
Generally speaking, November 12 is a "less lucky" day.

Try not to initiate any major projects on this dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty day (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.

In the 45° dial, the JU = SA/PL midpoint configuration becomes exact and will set the background of this month, especially the 2nd half when the midpoint is exact.

This midpoint configuration or planetary picture is another variety of the also ongoing PL = JU/SA midpoint.

This JU = SA/PL midpoint configuration suggests, among others: illness, health issues, to sacrifice oneself for someone or for others, to have trouble with authority or the government, adoption of the austere, trying to save what's left, getting on or going with restricted resources.

If you are born around January 16, February 29 - March 1, April 15, May 31 - June 1, July 17, September 2, October 18 or December 2, this midpoint configuration may affect you more personally too.

November starts heavy and pessimistic with (almost stationing) Mercury at 26° Libra square Saturn at 26° Capricorn around November 1.

It's not recommended to buy anything around this station as the product can be defective and/or there can be delays in delivering and/or possible shortages.

There is some sad news circulating and/or news or an announcement that meets lots of resistance.

Following astrometeorology, all Mercury-Saturn connections are told to indicate cooling and windy, cloudy weather with possible precipitation here and there.

Mercury stations at 25° Libra and turns direct again around November 3.

Rejoice Geminis and Virgos (and Gemini and Virgo Ascendants) as you may start to feel better now and your life gets on track again.

You can make decisions with more clarity now.

Following mundane astrology and generally speaking, stations of Mercury most often mark a period of possible strikes, manifestations or protests.

Around the same day of November 3, there are clouds in the sky, followed by sunny spells.

Mercury at 26° Libra squares Saturn at 26° Capricorn again around November 6, Mercury going direct now.

There is still kind of a sadness and somber feeling that lingers on early November, reinforced by the dull, windy, overcast, grey and cloudy weather.

Around November 7, there are sunny spells.

Around November 8, there are clouds in the sky.

Around November 9, Venus at 15° Libra opposes Mars at 15° Aries (which are so-called "critical" degrees, reinforcing their power and influence).

ALL Venus-Mars aspects point to issues with setting or knowing boundaries, either in the material world or in the immaterial world.

This aspect marks an accident-prone period with clashes, traffic accidents and physical injuries also.

This is not a peaceful aspect at all and marks some discontent.

Around November 10, Mercury enters 0° Scorpio, the so-called gates of death.

In investigative Scorpio, Mercury is very curious and urged to go to the bottom of things.

You may feel the compulsion to do something and some mental strain and obsession are noticeable too.

There can be news about taxes, insurances, legacies and other shared resources.

You think on the need to change (something in) your life and may find some solution or help that may bring relief.

This can be a very talkative period with lots of emerging news or messages.

Following mundane astrology, the entrance of Mercury in Scorpio often coincides with huge transportation and/or traffic accidents that result in many casualties or injuries.

Around November 12, Jupiter and Pluto conjoin at 22° Capricorn for the 3rd and last time this year.

In mundane astrology, this conjunction tends to have a more difficult outcome as in numerous instances it indicates many deaths and it always has a massive influence on "the masses", for whatever reason.

Jupiter always increases, enlarges, magnifies (unlike Saturn) and tends to bring more Plutonian intensity, force and power in the world.

It enlarges the scope of research and investigations also.

It enlarges transformations in a profound and deep way (and always with a big emotional connection because Pluto rules the water sign Scorpio).

This conjunction can be a very fanatic combo (reflecting a "Plutocratic" attitude) actually.

The intensity of this massive conjunction is reinforced by Mars, stationing around November 13-14 at 15° Aries, a so-called "critical degree."

Mars turns direct and becomes more energetic, impulsive, reckless, combative.

The Sun sign Aries (and Aries Ascendants) will feel this renewed kind of energy most.

Because the station happens at a critical degree of lacking boundaries, not taking into account (enough) the boundaries of others, crossing lines, expect clashes to occur, as well as accidents.

In some instances, physical injuries and surgery are indicated also.

In matters of inter-personal relationships, sudden attractions (and love at first sight) may happen at the one hand, but on the other hand chances are there will be more issues of rape and bullying as well.

This can be a very aggressive degree (and period because of the planetary station) and Mars will now be able to vent the frustration that was built up during the retrograde period.

Around the November 15 New Moon (which is a SuperMoon), Venus at 22° Libra squares Pluto at 22° Capricorn, suggesting financial blackmail.

This waning square in which Venus is in its own sign Libra points to tragedies in matters of love and romance.

Also, this aspect may indicate a traumatic loss of or separation from a beloved one.

Beware of forceful behavior and compulsive drives during this New Moon.

Following astrometeorology, this SuperMoon period may bring heavy showers.

If you are born around January 13, February 27, April 12, May 29, July 15, August 31, October 15-16 or November 29, this period may actually suggest a period of bliss, pleasure from music and the arts, enjoyment and social charm, creativity and flair.

Venus at 23° Libra, its own sign, squares Jupiter at 23° Capricorn, the sign of its fall, around November 16.

Because Venus is much stronger than Jupiter, this waning square indicates possible financial losses or expenses.

Some careless behavior can be noticeable and morality can be questioned.

Around the same day of November 16, there are clouds in the sky, followed by sunny spells.

The day after, around November 17, Mercury at 8° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 8° Taurus which is indicative of breaking news.

Expect a highly busy period with lots of changes of course and disruptions.

Following astrometeorology, all Mercury-Uranus aspects bring severe wind and even storm here and there.

Venus at 27° Libra squares Saturn at 27° Capricorn around November 19, suggesting financial restrictions and/or a separation from a beloved one.

Both planets are very strong in their own sign but Saturn is stronger yet because it's a heavier planet, thus imposing its energies more powerfully onto the weaker planet.

Hence, this waning square restricts affections, blocks relating and demands compliance and following the rules.

Relating seems to be impossible.

Around the same day of October 11, there are sunny spells, followed by clouds in the sky.

Venus enters Scorpio while the Sun enters Sagittarius around November 21.

Some information is spread widely.

The entrance of both bodies in these signs might indicate the uncovering of fraud and/or corruption.

Some announcement, news or message may go viral.

For some of you, there can be existential issues (often intensified by and/or based on fear).

In matters of love and romance, this transit is indicative of swapping partners, leaving the partner for another one and/or ending a love bond.

Following astrometeorology, this period may bring lots of rain and possible floods, inundations or other water-related issues (reinforced by the current Last Quarter Moon at 0° Pisces).

Around November 23, you may feel personally limited and there are tensions going on in your relationships.

You may feel lost, sad, hopeless , unable to fight or cope with the tensions.

If you are born around January 23, March 7, April 22, June 8, July 25, September 10, October 25 or December 9, these influences will affect you most.

Around November 27, Venus at 7° Scorpio opposes Uranus at 7° Taurus, suggesting love at first sight but also disruptions in your love life.

Oppositions to Uranus are very often upsetting, unsettling, and breaking up may be another possibility.

Because Venus is the dispositor of Uranus, this aspect also has a material/physical connotation and may affect your money or possessions for good or ill.

Neptune stations at 18° Pisces around November 28 and turns direct again.

Whenever Neptune changes direction, it indicates a period of lots of precipitation in whatever way (fog, rain, snow,...).

Some of you may feel tired around this station.

Beware of deceptions, disappointments and misunderstandings as not everything will be clear or understood well at first.

The station of Neptune marks very creative and insightful times though during which intuition gets a boost.

The November 30 Lunar Eclipse at 8° Gemini may point to a talkative period.

At 8° Gemini, this Lunar Eclipse is also semi-sextile shocking and even disruptive Uranus, adding to a sleepless night because of some "lasting" impressions.

Something gets our attention and raises our awareness with lightning speed.

Something, some situation, develops very fast.

Beware of fires and explosions.

Around the same day of November 30, there are clouds in the sky, followed by sunny spells.

Natal Mercury Mars Connections

In the past we have written many times about different planetary connections, analogies or affinities, mainly containing the love planet Venus.

We also started analyzing Mars connections as well as Mercury connections, found in the natal chart.

This time, we want to delve deeper into the natal Mercury Mars connections.

When do we have a Mercury-Mars connection, theme or analogy?

In most cases, the following configurations are used (there are more though (!) but this would lead us too far and make it more complicated than necessary):
  • Mercury in the 1st house
  • Mars in the 3rd or 6th house
  • the ruler of the 1st house in the 3rd or 6th house
  • the ruler of the 3rd house in the 1st house
  • the ruler of the 6th house in the 1st house
  • Mercury in a close conjunction, square or opposition with Mars (a tight sextile or trine counts too but in a minor way)
  • Mercury at the solstice point of Mars
  • Mars in Gemini or Virgo
  • Mercury in Aries
When at least three of the above listed analogies or connections can be found in the natal chart, we have a very powerful Mercury Mars connection that will be felt and noticed in the character and life of the native.

What does the Mercury Mars connection signify?

Mercury and Mars can both be quite nervous, each in a particular way, but when they are intertwined by some analogies or affinities, they tend to become irritable.

People with powerful Mercury Mars analogies tend to be (too) fast talkers, talking first and thinking later and/or even stuttering.

They respond and think with precipitation and are most often very assertive (if not verbally argumentative).

Their humor is sharp, at times even cynical.

They love to tease, often in a subtle way.

They have very good reflexes and may love racing and sports that involve speed, blending motion and agility.

They can be noisy (loud voiced).

They should beware of cuts and physical injuries, especially related to the hands/fingers, arms, shoulders and lung area.

People with strong Mercury Mars connections can be very handy and show quite some interest in technology and science.

They may love handicraft.
