Evaluate Everything You Hear and Everything You Say

Dear Chronogram Reader:

Mercury entered Gemini yesterday morning. The planet for which the element quicksilver was named arrives with the sensation of opening up after being in solid, earthy Taurus since April 24.

With Mercury in an air sign, the pace of your mental processes will increase and you may experience amazing mental agility. You may be able to find words for things that you might never have spoken. Giving a voice to the ‘other side’ of your personality will feel natural.

There are reasons for care, however, because Mercury is heading toward a square aspect (90 degrees) to Neptune in Pisces. Exact Sunday, this aspect demands integrity in the form of self-scrutiny, sincerity and evaluating everything you say and hear on the basis both honesty and motive. Refrain from exaggeration. Scrutinize carefully what people say to you, and note how much alcohol was involved.

As this develops, Venus edges into opposition with retrograde Mars. The deeper theme is communication not about sex per se but rather something designed to lead to sex. This might have the presumed motive of a relationship. Measure how deep that really goes and be real about it.

Sexual tension will be running high, so it’s a situation where you or someone else might say anything to get the desired result. Romance, fantasy and a kind of dream world are all in the planets—just keep your mind alert. Do your best to focus the conversation on something real, and to say what you might normally avoid. Everyone will benefit.

Lovingly,
Eric Francis

    How often have you tried to think your way into a new state of being or belief, or tried to think yourself into feeling healed? Thoughts are amazing tools for many things in life: planning, research, analysis. But often, when it comes to fully shifting our experience of ourselves, they are only part of the process—and sometimes not even the place to start.
