It is an alliance between Mercury and Saturn that not only creates an auspicious day for friendship and relationship building, but foretells of fateful times ahead. For now both are in retrograde motion, but when they meet up again later next month, they will both be in retrograde motion, holding the doors open to the past and second chances. Both planets know that, so it could be that their meet up today is underwhelming, with the real significance not appreciated until later down the track.
