May 4, 2020 - Mercury Conjuncts Sun
Mercury is moving into superior conjunction with the Sun today, and into tomorrow.
Seen here from earth, Mercury is lining up in the sky with the sun, and sliding behind the sun and out of view. This astronomical alignment is called a superior conjunction.
So, for a day or two it is like the sun engulfs and consumes the other planetary body, and obscures and blocks us from seeing it directly.
Mercury is the plant closest to the sun. It is “quicksilver”, as it moves fast, and orbits the sun in 88 days. Mercury has been associated with messenger energy, known in some cultures as the “messenger of the gods”. It is also associated with the mind, perception, learning, thought and reason, communication, wit, wisdom, expression, intellectual adaptability, eloquence, mental flexibility, easy integration of knowledge, diplomacy.
The areas of the body Mercury is associated with are traditionally the lungs, the central nervous system, blood, arms, hands.
Conjunctions offer us a strong flows of energy and communication. When two celestial bodies align in the sky, they amplify each other. The boost each other. Expect more Mercury energy and codes coming through the sun rays today and tomorrow.
