On Mercury Retrograde 2019

Three times Mercury paddled the seas of 16 to 29 degrees of Pisces from late February until mid April.  (Direct on March 29th)

After the stirrings of creative fire marked an about-face at 4 Leo, three times Mercury side-walked the shoreline degrees of 23 to 29 Cancer from late June to mid August. (Direct on August 1st)

Now, three times Mercury will slide and sink into the deep and contained degrees of 11 to 27 Scorpio from mid October until the first week in December. (Direct on November 21st)

Consider the time frames. Any theme or issue pop its head up in both of the previous retrogrades? Are there connections easily made if you think about it? If you haven’t dealt with the matter/s sufficiently, it’s coming back around to give you one more opportunity.

If you have natal points in play, you are going to recognize what’s happening pretty quickly. If you have dealt with it, be on the lookout for the proof! It’s quite satisfying to register what could pass without your noticing and that would be a shame.

That’s the beauty of Mercury retrograde cycles: they come in threes by element and offer the spacetime to deal with a particular kink in your life circuitry. Your wheel is the map by which you can isolate, classify, clarify and administer the fix. If that sounds rather Virgoan, it’s because Mercury is exalted in these matters.

What’s more, the current Mercury retrograde re-pings the Jupiter/Pluto dance of 2018. For some, this will provide an extremely meaningful progress report on this long-term cycle.

Once you’ve observed the threes-by-element cycle, impending retrograde dates become intriguing and less of an irritant. Being the occasional collateral damage of Merc rx is a lot more tolerable. Perception shifts.

The next time Mercury goes retrograde will be in February 2020 in fixed-air Aquarius…

Prelude to the Full Moon in Libra

cyprus transits280318

Over the last 48 hours, the baseline buzz of Uranus, sometimes described as Agitation or Panic, has grown to a irksome pitch for those seeking validation/acceptance of their personal agenda. Many are beyond boredom and frustration with slo-mo pointless drama, with the plight of being square in a hive of rounded Others, with the inane workings of The System, a.k.a. the Established Powers that Be.
Venus in Aries can almost see and smell her beloved green pastures in Taurus but the route before her – squarely behind and within ‘enemy lines’ – demands that she first performs a bit of guerilla warfare. If you’ve been getting System messaging louder and clear that your current style or mode of relating/deal making has lost its charm, then this lead-up post for the full moon in Libra is for you. No harm, no foul (yet), just No Go from here on.

Augmented Intelligence
In other words, if you really want to win you’ve got to get some emotional distance on the matter and that’s not easy – but it is possible. You’ve got to return to your proverbial center and expect to magnetise a brilliant result. Enter Uranus in modified regalia as cool, detached Genius Download in long-term, progressive service to Self. This may come from you/ ‘your side’ or from the System wherein you may least expect it.

(For me, the solution’s first step came from recognising a particular characteristic inherent in an archaic opposing system was a big weakness…nanoseconds later, I was grasping that I could capitalise on it. Once I saw this chink in the armor, my plan simply became obvious and even exhilarating to me…ha! I must still walk through a trying experience with a fickle Goliath but now I am channeling the tools available. I’m up for this. Agitation immediately drops to minimal/nil. Whew! )

Weather-Proof
You should always expect your astrologer to provide at least two supporting phenomena for their storyline recommendation.
1. Mars rules the space that Venus now travels through and is wholly under the authority of Saturn, the disciplinarian and the king of emotional containment.
2. Jupiter in Scorpio is novile the full moon and sextile Pluto. In English, this means: expect your genius solution to be found in going deeper in analysis of your particular validation struggle. Really examine the strings and pulleys between you and your in-law/contractor/employer/social network/parent/child/ health care provider. Let Pluto work FOR you; amp up your X-ray vision and drop your preconceived notions.

Cancerian Concerns
The upcoming full moon in Libra at 10’44 creates the shape of a cross ( ‘+’) in the astrology wheel. The sun occupies 10’44 of Aries, Saturn and Mars occupy 8’ of Capricorn, the moon is shining in Libra and this leaves the outlet for energy surplus/overload directly into 5’to 15’ of Cancer. This means that our response/s to Life’s revelations and completions occurring around March 31st will most likely have some Cancerian element to them.
You might decide to turn off your phone and maintain sofa status or take a long bath and go to bed. You might decide to visit family or a close long-time friend for a hearty meal – or cook for them. That’s fine as long as you don’t find yourself still sipping and nibbling into the wee hours. That’s fine as long as you don’t think you can come for comfort, but then a couple hours later start criticizing some pet ‘fault’ you see in them. That’s fine as long as you don’t seek to manipulate them into giving you further assistance.

Cancer can receive and handle your stress – gladly! – but you can be sure that beneath appearances, it’s not effortless. Respect that in yourself as caretaker and in those who nurture you. Remember that the people and places that represent sanctuary for you deserve your finest possible companionship and maintenance. After all, when the dust settles…who and what else matters?

Full Moon: 11 Gemini 40

The Twins Within
The atmosphere this full moon time will affect individuals along two fuzzy frequencies. Were you born in the morning or the evening? Do you have more earth or water in your personality? I ask because factors like these will determine how you feel and experience this super moon.

The ruler of the moon is Mercury, in stilled mode to retrograde on the stressed degree of 29 Sagittarius – and caught fast in Saturn’s gravitational chains: not so good for earth signatures. But here, in Sag, it can also take a lot to get a body down. Venus, too, is in the house, magnetizing the pleasures of the season’s festivities.

For all of us, the Lights and the Sea God form an exact t-square in the heavens that will dump the energies converging into Virgo, the sector of practical service and mind/body/spirit health. Its a bit of a funny mix…we want to mix and mingle and take a break from the mundane but do we have the means and stamina to cover all the bases? We might stare at our to-do lists and then find our mind has wandered into a reverie of movie clips and voice overs that tug powerfully on our heart strings. Those who feel compelled to serve may end up feeling fretful on the inside, lethargic on the outside and delighted with any social interruption. Those that have more fire and water elements in their nature will mostly likely be at the holiday parties, feeling that this hard patch will also pass. It’s not effortless, mind you; they are willing themselves to flow.

This full moon in Gemini indicates that you can decide to enjoy yourself even if the wolves are howling along your proverbial ridge line. We’re breathing in a strange and surreal atmosphere but looking around, our immediate world is still about the same. Mundane issues may be sputtering but we’re on the case. We can acknowledge that we are mortal – and that twin feature is universal. Downtime is essential to mind/body/spirit health and good decision making. My advice: give a nod to the boundaries and then try to play a little within whatever playground you’ve got. Flow, fellow heroes, flow.
