Don't Intellectualize Your Feelings: Mercury in Aquarius Trines Mars in Libra

When Air signs rule the cosmos, we often think before we feel. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are ruled by the Air element, which favors detached, intellectual analysis over mushy, gushy emotions.

When there is a major disconnect between your mind and your heart, it's easy to overlook your most important, intimate relationships in favor or what seems most practical and rational. Right now the tendency to intellectual feelings is hugely magnified, so you’ll have to catch yourself in the act.

At this moment, Mercury, the planet that rules our mental sphere, is in Aquarius, perhaps the most intellectual and detached sign of all. Mars, the planet of direct action and passion, is restrained by its current placement in docile Libra. This week (exact on Friday the 14) they are reaching a trine, a generally positive aspect that brings ease and forward motion. You'll have no problem getting your work done. But that's not everything in life, is it?

The problem with this otherwise-positive astrological phase is that it can make you deliberate your feelings out of existence. You're so practical at this moment that you may not even connect to your underlying emotions until weeks or months after you make important decisions about your most intimate relationships.

When it comes to your family life, it's vital to connect to your emotional side before you have an important conversation or broach a subject you know will be touchy or challenging. Spend a few moments with your eyes closed, and tune in to what you really feel. Or if possible, focus mainly on work and intellectual pursuits this week -- save matters of the heart for next week.
