There’s a lot to talk about this week! Grab a cuppa something and let’s dive in.
Mercury retrograde. Mercury turns retrograde on September 27th, the day I am writing this, at which point we have SIX retrograde planets, plus Chiron. This is not as extreme as last year when every planet (seven) including Venus and Mars was retrograde for many weeks – Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter will all turn direct in October and the undertow of retrograde energies will be on the wane. But don’t be surprised if this month you find yourself feeling like it’s Groundhog Day all over again and be prepared to be in a near constant review of your life as you prepare for this new future. Retrograde season has a purpose: it helps us to stay in the flow of life – like the ocean, there is an ebb as well as a flow and sometimes it is in the ebb where we find the most magic.
When Mercury is retrograde communication becomes more critical. Mercury is closest to the Sun and currently it is locked in a square to Pluto, making communication not only more critical as it stations retrograde and is at a standstill, but in that standstill it is challenged by Pluto’s intense commitment to creative destruction and transformation. The Truth will come out, and it’s not always pretty or comfortable. But whenever Pluto is involved, that discomfort and unease virtually always evolves into powerful realizations and growth.
And now…the week ahead. Days and times are given in EDT, please adjust for your own time zone.
