Mercury in Libra, the messenger, is trine aspect to Mars in Gemini, and opposition aspect to Jupiter in Aries. Instruction inspires action. Mars in a sextile aspect to Jupiter retro in Aries indicates a greater distribution of power through political funding. Legal issues (Libra) may also impede distribution of funds (Jupiter) with the opposition aspect.

However, the over-all situation remains the same as on Wednesday, with major aspects drawing closer. The situation intensifies if no resolution found. Mercury doubly approaches the opposition aspect to Jupiter retro in Aries and approaches the trine aspect to Mars in Gemini. Mars in Gemini is disposed of by Mercury. Although some flexibility in negotiations is achieved with the mutable air sign Gemini, the aspect is weakening, separating from the sextile aspect to Jupiter. Jupiter is disposed of by Mars, as success depends on the continuation of the negotiations.

Mercury in Libra separates from the opposition aspect to Jupiter, although Mercury remains in a symbiotic trine aspect to Mars in Gemini, as the ruler of Gemini, Mercury’s balancing act in Libra is augmented by the victorious achievements in negotiations. The Moon makes a quincunx aspect to Uranus in Taurus, and a sextile aspect to Saturn in Aquarius as more complications develop.
