The thing with the necessary misinformation might sound strange, but it can be as simple as your neighbor telling your abusive ex that you just left and are not at home, when that's not true. Whatever helps to get rid of flagrant interference is legit, in some cases people ask to be lied to, that's still better than having to beg them for a respect that is totally alien to them and that they won't grant you, which is the place where the wounding takes place this week. Either we are wild enough to not be messed with and use force only as a last resort (either when the wildness doesn't help, or when the misinformation doesn't help), or we try to ask for respect that certain people obviously do not have toward their fellow human beings.

This is a very strange aspect. One one side this is very karmic and stuck in the comfort zone, on the other side there is lots of mystical potential and potential for transformation. This might be an aspect where one person evolves and undergoes and incredible transformation, and the other person does not. It might be an aspect that concerns those relationships that were or will be there for only one purpose: Transformation, change, maybe mystic initiation, and finding greater self-awareness.

What makes this aspect so strange is that it is an integration field with 7 activations in integration - that's half of the main activations! The emphasis is on the channel of power with 3x the 34.3v and 3x the 57.2. I'm looking at a lot of charts day in day out, but this one is incredibly odd to look at, I haven't seen such an extremely tight cluster before.

The male energy is in the 57, either hiding the dirt under the carpet or finding inner renewal, proper values, and being determined to maintain those values. That's also how we manifest our way through whatever this transit may bring: upholding our values, even if it means that certain things will end. The female energy is in the gate of power, and because females usually don't have such a raw physical power and men can be more easily a physical threat to women, than the other way around, so due to that I assume that the female energy is fixed into the detriment: Defense through misinformation, not through raw power. Defense against what or who? Against those who hide their dirt under the carpet, fail at inner renewal, continue to interfere and violate boundaries. If the male energy is incapable of justly sharing and apportioning power and tries to overpower and control the female, they are being met with misinformation.

The female energy undergoes a steep transformation, recognizes what can not work, withdraws from shock, and lets go. She Independent of gender, this is about endings in relationships and letting go of them. Why? Because we are refining our values, and realize that all these old things don't match up to them anymore. Especially this might apply to these relationships where people just hide their dirt under the carpet, and try to convince us with misinformation or present a persona that is way better than actual reality.
For things that now start anew, or that would start exactly under this aspect, this can bring about a feeling of familiarity and emotional comfort, but also alienation through initially very convincing misinformation, and a feeling of being held back through relationships and the unhealthy emotional patterns and habits that people stick to because they don't want to leave their comfort zone and they don't want us to evolve either because that makes them a hell of a lot uncomfortable. Especially, one person might not want the other person to evolve beyond the misinformation and tries to keep them stuck through persuading them. Often, as soon as the karma of transformation and initiation has been worked through, these relationships might end as they have served that special purpose. However, it's a pretty mystical conjunction that can bring mystical experiences, initiation, and extreme transformation.

Mercury conjunct Mars can bring the hope for inner renewal and the awareness on what or who is worth waiting for, and who isn't because they will never manage to work on themselves, or for other reasons that might be as simple as that we can't force people to like us and to want to have anything to do with us.
It is about hoping to establish the right values as we realize that it is worth it to take a thorough look at our own shadows.
