Venus in Leo

Weekend update: Mercury direct, Venus in Leo, and Neptune Rx

I have to say, this has been the weirdest Mercury retrograde in recent memory, for me at least. As many of you know, I like to soothe people’s anxieties about Mercury retrograde and the truth is that snafus happen when Mercury isn’t retrograde too.  But this one, with Mercury having changed direction in a square to Neptune, has brought a Neptunian layer that has just been weird.  Orders not just going wrong but disappearing entirely.  Contractors giving bad information based on wrong assumptions.  Schedules being disrupted by people showing up when they said they wouldn’t.  Just weird!  Maybe it’s worse for me because all of this has happened right on my Gemini ascendant.

Neptune has been stationary in the sky through the entire three-week retrograde period – when a planet is stationary it carries a more potent punch, and Neptune’s purpose is inspire us to step away from the mundane world of schedules and to-do lists and instead move into more of an imaginative and creative experience.

How has it been for you? Let me know in the comments!

Mercury has now turned direct, but it will make that returning square to Neptune again on July 6th so if like me you’ve been having a weird time, don’t get too comfortable quite yet.  😃

Speaking of Neptune, in other big news Neptune has just changed direction so it will continue to be stationary for another few weeks.  Stationary planets appear to stand still in the sky, and therefore if you are having a transit of Neptune to your personal chart (look to see if you have any planets in the 18-28 degree range of Pisces, Virgo, Gemini or Sagittarius) you may continue to feel somewhat confusing energies, like […]

Astrological update! Week of August 31 – September 6, 2020 including Pisces Full Moon

This week is packed with astrological juju: we have a very juicy Pisces Full Moon which includes, among other goodies, a harmonious sextile to Uranus to wake us up out of a rut and heighten our intuition.  Two planets (Mercury and Venus) change signs, and Mars prepares to turn retrograde on September 9th.  Transcription is below the video for those who prefer to read, but as always the video includes graphics and charts to illustrate more fully these planetary movements.

Hey everybody, its Lynn Hayes. Welcome back to my channel. I really appreciate your joining me here. If you’re new, every Monday I post a video about the astrological influences for the upcoming week and how you can get the most out of these influences in your own life.

In today’s video, we’re going to be talking about the upcoming Pisces Full Moon which will give us an infusion of magical energy, creative inspiration, spiritual focus, and hopefully a lot of really good things. We also have two planets that are changing signs which suggests a shift of energies that will create some movement in our own lives. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Let’s talk first about the Full Moon in Pisces. When the Moon is full, that means that the Sun, currently in Virgo, is opposite the Moon which is currently in Pisces. This is the culmination of the waxing lunar cycle. The lunar cycle starts at the New Moon where we craft our intentions, we plant our seeds, and then during the waxing phase there is a period of growth and the Full […]
