From the just-out issue of ECLIPSE:
30 August Mercury in Virgo sextiles Jupiter in Cancer–and despite the flow of a sextile what we find is some aggravation and overly critical interaction, as a too-sensitive social sphere or power-figure overreacts to communications that are bald facts stripped of niceties. If this were a bad science fiction movie, it might be Robot Accountants vs. the Crybaby-gods (or maybe those are dueling gangs involved in a dance-off, à la West Side Story). In any scenario, individuals and groups may split off into cold, calculating (and maybe just a little sadistic) truth-tellers (or perhaps fact-flingers) on one side and powerful but totally playing the tender feelings/ vulnerable ego card on the other. Just be aware, both are attempts to run the show–winners wait for the Moon to shift from Gemini into Cancer (4:33 AM PDT), then use Luna’s sextile to Ceres in Virgo, which also captures Mars at the midpoint, to act from a secure position of appropriate power expression–no need to try to wring blood from a stone, as those identifying with Jupiter will do, or to punish with the unvarnished reality of ‘What Is’, as those identifying with Mercury will.
