5+ hours after the moon-venus rendezvous in the heavens, a very different alignment takes center stage when mercury unites with saturn in scorpio (3:40pm). there is always a serious component to any mercury-saturn merger and this conjunction will repeat on october 29 and november 25 due to the upcoming mercury retrograde cycle occurring from october 21 to november 10. mercury with saturn — while sometimes veering toward pessimism and worry — can provide genius on the professional front and especially regarding understanding mathematics and physics. [albert einstein was born with an exact mercury-saturn union in pioneering aries.]
