Mercury conjunct Jupiter occurs for the third time this year on 5 March 2021. Mercury first passed over Jupiter on 12 January, then turned retrograde and passed back over the planet of expansion on 14 February. This is a fast moving transit of about a week’s duration but it can split open your mind and make you receptive to a new point of view.

This time a supportive sextile between the Sun and Lilith on the same day will give this day a quality of open-mindedness and creative healing. Productive conversations will be easier.
