Weekly Astrology Forecast July 11 – 17, 2022

Excerpt from PatreonMercury then joins the Sun on July 16, forming a superior conjunction in the skies. After this date, Mercury will then emerge from the Sun’s rays in a week or so as an evening star. Consequently, after the brilliant revelations of this conjunction, we become more reflective, thinking back more than looking forward. We’ve gone as far as we can since the last solar conjunction when Mercury was retrograde back in May. The union of Mercury and the Sun brings us in touch with Source, filters down messages from the heavens, gives us a flash of insight as to the nature of our mission and purpose in life.

The Sabian symbol of this conjunction is ‘A Wilful Man Is Overshadowed By A Descent Of Superior Power’. I’m looking back at the symbol for the Full Moon which was ‘By Accepting Defeat Gracefully, A General Reveals Nobility Of Character’. How interesting that we have these two stories about ‘defeat’. One who is ‘noble’ and accepts his difficult position with grace; the other who is ‘wilful’ and refused and resisted until they were overpowered. This latter symbol is connected with ego so perhaps the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury may make us aware of where ego has got in the way of our soul’s mission.
