Astrological forecast for the week of September 27, 2021: Mercury retrograde and retrograde season


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. 

Monday, September 27.  As Mercury turns retrograde the Moon is in Mercury-ruled Gemini.  There is a lot to say, a lot to think, and […]

6.3.21 – Watch for new possibilities under these harmonious aspects!

A harmonious trine from Venus to Jupiter, the two beneficial planets, is one of the luckiest aspects available to us and we get one today.  Venus trine Jupiter can bring opportunities of all kinds, and is generally harmonious for our relationships, our finances, and our general attitudes. We also have a harmonious trine from the Sun to Saturn which helps to bring stability and a refreshed ability to focus on the things that are important to us so that we can accomplish whatever we set our mind to. Unlike the difficult planetary conditions which affect us without any effort on our part, with any planetary aspect of good fortune we must be awake enough to take advantage of it.  When it’s cold outside we are uncomfortable enough to put on a jacket, but when the temperature is comfortable we don’t really pay attention and it’s the same with planetary weather!

These are both fast moving influences that last only a couple of days and remember in the midst of all of this is the second phase of the challenging square from Saturn to Uranus that is creating conflict and revealing fissures in areas of our lives that require change in order to better meet the pressures of the changing world.  Still, we can take advantage of the lovely planetary weather today to refresh ourselves with a new sense of abundance and possibilities. ❤️
