Mars and Mercury are in a planetary war (exact conjunction) from 10th-26th August with the most intense day being Thursday 19th of August, 2021 – check the align27 app for exact timings in your area.
This conjunction happens every year as these are both fast moving planets.
The energy of Mars and Mercury can be used in a constructive way to get things done, but we have to keep in mind that “impulsiveness” is the nature of this conjunction. Pause and think before you act as these planets can go from thought to action or speech very very quickly.
If you are not careful, you could regret your words and actions.
During this time you might find than you are deleting more messages than you are sending whilst communicating 😉
Here are some rituals that you can do to make the best use of this transit:
- Listen to or chant Vishnu Sahasranama, the powerful and profound Sanskrit hymn which contains a list of 1,000 names of Vishnu, the deity of Mercury, whilst you relax the mind and free it from unwanted worries and distracting thoughts, encouraging it to focus on the positive aspects of your life.
- Call on Lord Narasimha – The man-lion avatar of Lord Vishnu, who is associated with Mars, with the mantra – Aum Namo Bhagavate Narasimhaya. It is said that honoring Lord Narasimha brings courage, valor and protection.
- Mars represents war and the army and Mercury is associated with small children and education, so donate towards war veterans or children’s education.
