The Italian Renaissance painter, known as Correggio, captures a tender moment betweenVenus with Mercury and Cupid ( National Gallery of London) in his painting. Here, Mercury teaches Cupid to write while Venus fixes her gaze at us. Renaissance artists taught allegories, myths, and lessons in Astrology through their painting.
Currently, in our night sky, Mercury and Venus conjunct on March 5th. The Mercury- Venus conjunction evokes sensitivity and desire to communicate feelings, concerns, and matters important to us. During this Mercury-Venus conjunction expect some synchronicity and magic to unfold. Pay attention to the details and make appropriate connections. Nothing happens randomly. Energy constantly moves despite our abilities to see the bigger picture.
During this conjunction, Mercury teaches us effective communication. In the painting, Mercury teaches Cupid to write, as Venus confidently looks our way, reminding us to focus attention and awareness of our thoughts and spoken words. Words can never be retracted. They carry frequency and energy.
During the Mercury- Venus conjunction, we learn to rebuild trust. The allegory of Cupid symbolizes love, trust and surrender. Magic and synchronicities happen when we experience looking at the world from child-like trust.
The next few days mark a time of questioning where in your life you have lost your child-like trust. Children are little cupids; joyous, loving, and trusting beings. Can we regain that childlike trust again for people, ourSelves, and our future endeavours at this time in our lives? I think so. The conjunction invites us to examine where in our lives we have stopped trusting and begun acting from preconceived suppositions and stereotypes. Stepping back, becoming the unemotional observer allows us to witness the synchronicities and magic of the moments.
Take this energy of the Venus, Mercury conjunction and start new and fresh. Give your endeavours, relationships, friendships, projects, etc. new eyes. Give it a blank slate beginning. Create again from nothing. Create childlike wonder.
