MERCURY 9 1/2 weeks in SCORPIO (Oct 3 – Dec 9)! Taboo Talk, Intimate Conversations, and 6th Sense

27 Sep

Dear Astro~News Reader,

Dr. Jeckyll / Mr. Hyde – artist unknown

We gotta address taboos and hidden agenda.
Privately, inter-personally, and publicly.

 

Ha – just in time before the Canadian Federal Elections on Oct 21 -when MERCURY in SCO will be in pre-retro shadow (from Oct 13 on).

Whoa – wait a minute… MERCURY will be in SCORPIO forever, AND retro, starting from Halloween on?

Yep. No hoax here.

This can become… interesting!

Getting out of the closet & airing what’s been hidden can be painful yet important for processing, empowering and transforming.

…says also PLUTO the ‘Lord of Scorpio’, prominent in October, since it changes directions from retro (inner / hidden / old Power issues) since end of April, to direct (Power to Change) from Oct 3 on.
And yep, PLUTO in CAP these years (2009 – 2023) is all about the change of abusive and corrupt power structures, government, and top-down leadership, and empowered transformation via building the new and evolved.
While admittedly (and ‘normal’ for PLUTO) status quo power structures hold on with teeth & claws – in the inevitable evolutionary change that’s coming and happening.

 

And now: MERCURY

Tipping Point – Photo by Ted Roberts

So – MERCURY will cross over the ‘Tipping Point’ from LIBRA to SCORPIO on Oct 3, on the DAY when PLUTO changes directions, and just after the Sept 28 LIBRA New Moon.

MERCURY will be in the ‘Down Under’ Zodiac sign for a while: until Dec 9 (you guessed why – it’ll go retro, Oct 31 – Nov 20). 
MERCURY will go almost fully through SCORPIO before going retro on Oct 31, and cover the (under)ground of the second half of SCO – 11 – 28 degrees – 3 times.

Big Time for Taboo Talk, as we dive into ‘uncomfortable’, scary, repressed, covered up, ‘under wraps’ and unfathomable topics and scenarios, remembered, experienced, or perhaps vividly pictured.
Yet, MERCURY in SCORPIO also opens up our 6th sense, tickles our interest in the mystery, the magical and otherwise unseen. And it’s much more conducive for deep intimate conversations.

 

Let’s see which connections MERCURY in SCORPIO makes with other Planetary Players – some triple contacts, in the pre-retro / retro / post-retro loop.


In order of appearance:

OCT 3
MERCURY enters SCORPIO – on the day when PLUTO the ‘Lord of SCORPIO’ goes direct.
Power to Change, and to Change the Conversation.

OCT 5
MERCURY in quincunx with CHIRON retro in ARIES.
Authentic Talk can be awkward, or refreshing to address vulnerabilities & taboos.

OCT 6
MERCURY opp. URANUS retro in TAU.
Wild card / liberating shifts in thinking and communications.
Be intuitive, innovative, expect the unexpected, incl. surprise news.
No rush to ‘run with them’ though.

OCT 8
VENUS joins MERCURY in SCORPIO (until Nov 1).

How deep is your Love?

OCT 12
Pre-retro Shadow (MERCURY at 11°35′ SCO – where it’ll go direct again) starts.
Fore-shadowing issues?

OCT 13
MERCURY sextile SATURN in CAP (1 of 3).
Considering deeper issues.

OCT 15
MERCURY trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (1 of 3).

Going deep into the traps of the self defeating mind, to allow for purging and releasing while staying connected in the Field of Love.

OCT 19
MERCURY sextile PLUTO in CAP (1 of 3).
Looks like the ‘Old Empire’ is on its way to expire.
What’s the conversation that’s now going on about that? What do you think?

OCT 23
The SUN enters SCO (until Nov 22).
Consciously diving into Magic, Mystery, and Transformation – t’is the Season.

OCT 25
The pre-retro ‘Storm’ / stationary phase for MERCURY retro in SCO starts.
Take it easy on ‘plans’.
Get ready for synchronicities and synch’ with the Flow & Magic of Life.

OCT 30
MERCURY at the end of SCO meets VENUS.
Intimate conversations. What is Love?

OCT 31
MERCURY (at 27°38′ SCO) goes retro (until Nov 20).
Alchemy of the Mind.
MERCURY retro in SCORPIO can present itself as really tricky, since the mind can poke & provoke us where it hurts – only to identify self-defeating patterns of self talk and ‘inner game’ that are now ripe to change – by going all the way through the process.

NOV 8
MERCURY retro sextile PLUTO in CAP (2 of 3).
Changes in Society re-flect inner transformation – good to be aware…

NOV 11
MERCURY retro meets the SUN on magical 11/11.
Half-way point of the M-r Journey = ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’ / a ‘New Mercury’ is born.
The mind in service to the Heart and Consciousness.
What are your realizations about the quality of ‘mind’, having already gone through deep inner journeys? 

NOV 13
MERCURY retro sextile SATURN in CAP and trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (2 of 3).
Being in integrity & maturity and in surrender & openness help with processing the tricks of the mind. What’s real here, and how is all / are you connected, in the web of life?

NOV 18
MARS makes a move over the ‘Tipping Point’ and joins MERCURY & the SUN in SCORPIO (until Jan 3).
Intense Stirring, Clearing, and Spiritual Mobilization.

NOV 20
MERCURY goes direct again.
May the inward-backward turning and processing lead to a transformed & renewed way of seeing and interacting with the World!

NOV 22
The SUN goes over the ‘Phoenix Point’ from SCO to SAG.
We Rise again – towards the Light Returning. Understanding leads to Freedom.

NOV 25
MERCURY leaves the stationary post-retro ‘storm’.
Integration of the adjustment time – back into the ‘real world’, with a regenerated sense of self, and awareness of where the mind comes in.

NOV 28
MERCURY post-retro trine NEPTUNE retro / LILITH in PI (3 of 3).
Allowing the Alchemy to carry you.

NOV 29
MERCURY post-retro sextile SATURN in CAP (3 of 3).
Job well done, and good lessons learned.

DEC 2
MERCURY post-retro sextile PLUTO in CAP (3 of 3)
Being changed through the greater Alchemy of Life.

DEC 8
MERCURY leaves the post-retro Shadow (MERCURY at 27°38′ SCO – where it went retro from).
After the mental deep-dive adventure it’s time to integrate our new way of Being where Mind follows Consciousness and the Heart.

DEC 9
MERCURY crosses over the ‘Phoenix Point’ into SAG.
Growing wings…

 

More about MERCURY retro in SCORPIO (Oct 31 – Nov 20) in a blog post closer to MERCURY pre-retro shadow (which starts Oct 12).

For now, let’s dive in, be with Mystery, Magic, and not afraid of the ‘Dark’.

 

Where’s MERCURY’s deep dive into SCORPIO happening in Your Chart & Life?

Alchemy Retort. Medieval painting, origin unknown

The House in your Chart that contains SCORPIO is the ‘Scene of Affairs’.
(Always, but esp. nowadays) a good time to go into depth where magic, transformation, and re-generation happen.

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in SCORPIO? Then there’s more to the activation between MERCURY and these Inner Archetypes of yours…

Could be a good time to check in astrologically – get in touch if you feel it’s calling you.

 

Back to the SCORPIO Houses – we all have one (or two) –

SCORPIO in your….

 

1st House
How you show up –
Maybe ‘under cover’ – more than what meets the eye.
The World senses the charge you emit. Don’t hide, be a catalyst.

 

2nd House
What you have and value –
Magic and power-to-change.
Be aware of those ‘gifts in disguise’.

 

3rd House
Your ‘relatives’ and environment –
Do they even know you / each other?
Hide & seek games? What needs to be talked about?

 

4th House
Your home –
A regenerative haven…
If you and your family have gone through so much this is the time to talk about it and process what happened and who you’ve become through it.

 

5th House
Your creativity –
Pure magic.
You’re the Alchemist – inspired by the divine Play of Change.

 

6th House
Your work, health, and lifestyle –
Time to purge, regenerate, and transform to be in your / the Power.

 

7th House
Your significant others –
Magical Beings. Catalysts for change.
Are you aware why they might be in your life?

 

8th House
Your deep involvement and transformations –
You died many deaths and here you are. Who’s the true you?

 

9th House
Your travels and worldviews –
Through the darkness to the light.
Time for another inner / outer Journey?

 

10th House
Your calling –
Leading / modeling transformation.
Does the World know / sense? Maybe time for a renewed public-yet-private presence.

 

11th House
Your community and friends –
A magical tribe – who probably went through a lot too.
Talk with your deep dive buddies – who knows where it leads.

 

12th House
Your Oneness with All –
In the Magic & Power of Life that’s always greater than personal / interpersonal power themes.
Take time-out to dive into what-IS.

 

Blessings for a truly transformational MERCURY in SCORPIO!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS:

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’ and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

Special offer & focus this month (until OCT 3):

Your Archetypes – Your Partners :: LIBRAn Astro Sessions

The SUN, MERCURY & VENUS are still in LIBRA and MARS follows, on OCT 3.
A big emphasis on Peace, Balance, Harmony, Art, Culture, and: Relatedness / Relationship.

If you have any ‘cosmic placements’ (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets) in LIBRA… the themes of those Archetypes / Inner ‘Players’ will more likely be on your mind, with MERCURY in LIBRA.
Engaging with what these Archetypes and sides in you stand for will bring you Balance.
Be Partners with them!
Otherwise, what often happens: We attract human partners who embody those Archetypes to help us integrate the themes. A bit of a ‘detour’.

Read on, and find the whole gist of the offer at my FB Page at the Event description.

MERCURY in VIRGO (Aug 29 – Sept 14): Practice IS Perfect

28 Aug

Dear Astro~News Buffs & Newbies,

Here comes another noteworthy & effective cosmic (Sphinxy!) shift:
MERCURY the swift Messenger (its GEMINI side) and crafty Alchemist (its VIRGO facet) goes from LEO (“Show Time / Heart Time”) into VIRGO one of its Zodiacal homes.

Have you noticed the whole spectrum of the LEO expression on your and others’ minds, over the last weeks (Aug 11 – 29, even end of June to mid-July when MERCURY first ‘hit’ LEO before going retro)?
With expressions of joy, playfulness, natural strength, confidence, and ideally: Being in the Heart and communicating from there…
Yet also lower vibrations of egoic self absorption, confidence as a facade to not ‘lose face’, maybe even narcissism – mostly an over compensation of actual lack of self confidence and living from the Heart….?

MERCURY in LEO has shown us once again how the mind can be too me-me-me selfie-oriented, and lack detachment / perspective / the ability to witness in a bigger system.
That’s prob why it’s considered ‘in Fall’ in LEO (while ‘exalted’ in AQ).
Hopefully you and many people had a chance to turn it around and come from the Heart-of-Hearts.

Now – exactly overnight today – Aug 28 – 29, MERCURY crosses over the mysterious and oracular ‘Sphinx Point’ to VIRGO where the Planetary Archetype of ‘Mind’ can help us be aware of the Self and its function ‘in the World’, and be in alignment with the ‘cosmic assignment’:

Who are YOU?
And what are you here for?
How can you bring your strength & love into service?

 

Mercury Rules Virgo, by Johfra Bosschart

MERCURY is the last Planet to enter VIRGO, adding to the full dose of SuperVIRGO energy at the New MOON on Aug 30 (SUN, MOON, MERCURY, VENUS, and MARS, all in VIRGO).
Wellness in Wholeness is the theme.
Stay tuned for the New Moon article here on this blog channel 🙂

Our Yoga teacher brought up yesterday the theme of (unattainable) perfection – which is so VIRGO.

Why?
Having a sense of what works and is ‘in order’ (i.e. in cosmic order) can make the VIRGO mind so frustrated about the ‘imperfect self’ in an ‘imperfect world’  which appears full of mess and problems… lots of them un-fixable.
What to do about this predicament?
Alignment with / as our ‘Higher’ / True Self helps – and is an on-going practice.
One of the VIRGO themes / my mantra in that regard is: Practice IS Perfect.
To realize: We do our part / what we can, yet we’re not the doers’ on a spiritual level – and ‘even’ quite practically: How do you ‘make’ your lungs breath, your heart beat – nothing ‘to do’ about all these ‘autonomous’ body functions that are quite miraculously happening without conscious intervention.
Something NEPTUNE in PISCES ‘on the other side of the spectrum’ (yet all-encompassing and all-connective) shows us.

 

MERCURY in VIRGO (Aug 29 – Sept 14) nicely-precisely frames the phase from the VIRGO New Moon (Aug 30) to the PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon (Sept 13).
How does that happen?

See: There’s cosmic order – without any ‘doer’ involved!

 

MERCURY in VIRGO will go into contact (which is an important function of the communication and Alchemy Archetype) with almost all other Planets.
An important concentration of these contacts occurs Sept 5 – 8 when MERCURY meets several other slow moving Planets that are in their own ruled (‘natural’) Zodiac sign this year (and some beyond): JUPITER in SAG, SATURN in CAP, and NEPTUNE in PI.
I call this phenomenon Contacts in Rulership.

Let’s see what they ‘tell us’ via MERCURY, and how that helps with Alignment practice 🙂

 

Image: From Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry – a French medieval work (from 1416) that became famous for the Zodiac associations with body parts and functions – still / timelessly valid.

MERCURY’s contacts with other Planetary Archetypes while in VIRGO – in order of appearance

Yet there’s a ‘halo phase’ around the precise alignment – they’re in effect a few days before and after.

 

AUG 29
MERCURY crosses over the ‘Sphinx Point’ to enter VIRGO (until Sept 14), and is met / initiated by the dark-to-New MOON in VIRGO (AUG 30).
Practice IS Perfect.

 

AUG 31
MERCURY in VIR quincunx CHIRON retro in ARIES.
Even if it’s awkward and you can’t rehearse, just make the first step to talk, and be authentic.
Very healing.

 

SEPT 1
MERCURY in VIR in Earth Trine with URANUS retro in TAU.
What grounds you, when it comes to hands-on work and enjoyment?
What does your body say? Which physical place do you feel in alignment with and comfortable at? Your mind might be surprised…

 

SEPT 3
MERCURY meets MARS and the SUN (this is their ‘inferior conjunction’ – furthest away from M-r, and swiftest now) in VIRGO.
MARS in VIRGO (Aug 16 – Oct 2) helps us put energy into Competence & Service, actively discern, and even assert, what works for us and what doesn’t, and to work diligently on what we’re passionate about.
Find your Voice, let them know what you’re passionate about and what you do about that.
Overall, let Consciousness speak.

 

SEPT 5 – the Contacts in Rulership (Sept 5 – 7) start with:
MERCURY in VIR in Earth Trine with SATURN retro / stationary (going direct Sept 18) and the South Node in CAP. While MERCURY is swift & straight-forward, SATURN is still retro and extra slow, in turnaround mode, together with the South Node.
Lots to organize and get ready for. Don’t judge / be hard on yourself and do things the hard & heavy way.
A good time for late Summer clearing (incl inner ‘house cleaning’), and for getting the pieces together to build a foundation for projects to come. Always good to remember: Practice IS Perfect.

 

SEPT 6
MERCURY in VIR square JUPITER in SAG.
Seeing the ‘conflict’ between the small world and the bigger picture?
Where there’s a problem there’s a solution – and a vaster perspective of seeing the situation.

 

SEPT 7
MERCURY in VIR opposite NEPTUNE retro in PISCES.
We’re doing our human thing while the Universe is arranging the Web of Life.
Communication happens via so many channels. Even if it seems overwhelming and confusing, never mind, and trust the flow. Let yourself be mused and inspired.

 

SEPT 8
MERCURY in VIR in Earth Trine with PLUTO retro in CAP.
Practical things happen here-now, yet deep & old connections get you into the Soul.
Energy from the Ancestors and from the Earth support what you’re doing.

 

SEPT 13 – Day of the PISCES – VIRGO Full Moon
MERCURY at the end of VIRGO meets VENUS before both go into LIBRA the day after, Sept 14.
You are beautiful, you are perfect – just the way you ARE.

AQUARIUS – Super-LEO Full MOON (Aug 15) – Love & Liberté

14 Aug

Dear Cosmic Friends,

Are you feeling the AQ – LEO dynamic tension – maybe even dilemma of

Friends & Lovers / Loved Ones
Love for Humanity
Creativity & Co-Creation
Self & Society
Love & Freedom?

 

…all brought out compliments tomorrow’s AQ MOON – LEO SUN / VENUS aka AQ – LEO Full MOON.
As Full Moons do – choices are coming up, and really: the notion to bridge and ‘marry’ what seems polar opposite.
Crystal clear AQ Moon and bright hot LEO Summer Sun – what a pair…!
To bless us with Love & Clarity that leads to, or rather: IS Freedom!

 

Well, this one’s SO strongly LEO emphasized, with VENUS just having met the SUN in LEO yesterday Aug 13, plus there’s a whole entourage around the VENUS ‘ SUN Goddess’ – incl. MERCURY in early LEO, MARS on the ‘Sphinx Point’ at the end of LEO, and also SIRIUS (just risen again on 08/08) with the North Node in mid-CANCER and came out strongly at the Eclipses of July.
Big Solar spotlight there – reflected on the Moonlight – plus AQ is rather a witness / observer.

Angel of Revelation – Painting by William Blake

It’s been a super charged, ‘electric’ build-up time for this FULL MOON, due to the URANUS (Ruler of AQ) turnaround on Aug 11, and MERCURY in LEO about to square URANUS on Aug 16 (see chart).
URANUS brings breakthroughs and liberation, and the Full MOON in AQ can be a ‘transmitter’.

 

All about Liberation, with URANUS / AQ.

Freedom FROM the low vibrational expressions of the LEO – AQ energies

  • LEO Drama & Dominance
  • AQ Isolation and Alienation

And Freedom FOR…

  • Authentic Self Expression. Shining Our Light (LEO)
  • Living Life Lovingly and Creatively (LEO)
  • Connecting with Like-Spirited and Like-Hearted Friends and Community (AQ)
  • Co-Creating in Freedom, and with Synergistic Innovation (AQ)

Reminds me of the spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti who was born with AQ AC – looked up his birth chart with his late AQ where tonight’s FULL MOON will be! We could use his ‘Freedom from the Known’ teaching – on so many levels. Last year I was with a friend on a personal retreat in the beautiful K-Ctre outside of Victoria. We picked ‘randomly’ some videos to watch, and in one of them Krishnamurti talks about ‘Freedom that has no opposite’ – since as long as there is an opposite (even freedom from… or freedom for) it’s not ultimate Freedom.
A liberating paradigm shift. Back to the ‘hub of the wheel’.

Same goes for Love – only Love without opposite is real Love.

 

Late AQ is in your chart shows the area of life where Lunar Liberation and Co-Creation is ‘full & ripe’ now:

1st House:
How You show up –

BE Liberated!

2nd House:
What you have and value –

Own Your Freedom!

3rd House:
Your Environment –

Co-Create in the City, and with ‘Relatives’ in Humanity!

4th House:
Your Home & Origin –

A Place for Friends!

5th House:
Your Creativity –

You’re a Free-spirited Innovator!

6th House:
Your Work, Health, and Lifestyle –

Cooperation is the Future!

7th House:
Your significant Others –

Liberated Partnerships, and: Is Your Partner Your Friend?!

8th House:
Your deep Involvement and Transformations –

From Loneliness and Distance to Sharing in Humanity?

9th House:
Your Travels and Worldviews –

Meet Like-Spirited Friends in the World – maybe as you Travel or Study?!

10th House: Your calling and Purpose –
Freedom.

11th House:
Your Community –

True Friends and Co-Creators.

12th House:
Your Oneness with ALL –

Always FREE…

 

And AQ – LEO reminds me also of one of my all time favourite quotes:
“We are All Stars in the Constellation of Love!”

 

 

The FULL MOON Map – a Fuller Picture…

Voila – the ‘birth chart’ for the exact FULL MOON tomorrow Aug 15 at 5:29 am PDT, viewed from Victoria BC:

SO much FIRE in the energy field!

Mainly via LEO but also via CHIRON in ARIES (until 2026) – awakening Authenticity Medicine, and via JUPITER in SAG (until Dec 2) – having just turned from retro to direct on Aug 11 – igniting our YES for the Journey of the Heart that elevates our vibration and is a clear YES.


And YES – LEO Rules!

With the message to live from Love, and from radiant Heart energy.
What ignites your Heart?

Cosmic Mother Goddess – Artist unknown

At the Full Moon time, just before Sunrise, LEO is even the Rising Sign, so the LEO SUN rules the chart, and is in the 1st House with VENUS – A Rising SoUlar Goddess – while the AQ MOON is setting in the West.

Reminds me of the fact that the warm and life giving Sun has ‘female gender’ in German – Die Sonne, while the Moon has a ‘male gender’ attributed – Der Mond.
While in the Romance languages The Moon is of course female – La Lune, La Luna while the Sun is male – Le Soleil / El Sol, Il Sole – as Solar energy has been attributed to the Yang-Masculine, and Lunar to the Yin-Feminine – with the Moon cycle being tied to the menstrual cycle – which seems to make more sense – or could be simply conditioned?!

With the AQ – LEO Full MOON dyna-mix – how about experimenting (so URANIAN) with reversing &integrating the polarity, esp, since the Solar (VENUS – SUN) Goddess is rising at the time of the Full Moon?!
Freedom is beyond opposites!

 

SO much fixed energy these days

SUN / MOON / Planets  mostly in fixed signs TAU – LEO – SCO – AQ.
Things can get a bit / a lot! stuck and locked.
Watch for compulsive / controlling behaviour,and instead channel the energy into Love and Passion. The crystal clear AQ Moon helps us find our Love (again?).

MARS being initiated by the Sphinx

The Warrior is now at the end of LEO on the ‘Sphinx Point’ – and up for a grounding Initiation as ‘he’ enters VIRGO on Aug 17.

Full fruition of LEO passion and strength –
To be harvested, ‘tamed’, and applied into the VIRGO gifts of skillfulness, awareness & helpfulness.
MARS in VIRGO loves to make things work – cosmic handyman energy.
How’s that for you?

Do those themes show up in the area of life related to your astrological house with LEO – VIRGO in it?

More about MARS in VIRGO (Aug 17 – Oct 2) in the freshly released Astro~News article.


In the ‘Earth department’ there’s of course still the SATURN retro – South Node – PLUTO retro, with the on-going theme

No Time for the Old Empire

SATURN retro in mid CAP travels slowly but surely next to the Lunar South Node (all Spring and Summer 2019).
This ‘smells’ so much like endings, closures, esp. of the shadow / low and heavy vibration of CAP:
Doing things the hard way, resisting and judging (others and self), wasting time and energy (on exactly that, or other rock-solid ineffective / damaging patterns), being the martyr and taking too much on, or a scapegoat, being stuck in pretend security that has a high price, being in guilt or scarcity mode… and getting drained by it all – you get the picture! 

Feels prob heavy even just reading…

This really is the year (the PSE New MOON in CAP next to SATURN on Jan 5 set the tone) to let the ‘Old Empire’ expire. Whatever your inner / outer ‘Old Empire’ is that had its time.
Good to check in with shadows / blind spots…
Find a way of honouring the Old for the purpose it has had, and give it a conscious farewell,  a ceremony perhaps even. And / or notice how symptoms of it / people and experiences that represent simply fall away. 

Energy is freed up for the CANCER-LEO creativity.

The Universe and Nature are infinitely creative.
A Goddess thing ❤

 

EmBodying Freedom

Our friend URANUS the Awakener, still newly in TAURUS – a cosmic focus in turnaround ‘station’ throughout August (went retro on Aug 11), a.k.a. the ‘higher octave’ of MERCURY – wakes up & shakes up MERCURY in early LEO this week, showing us that mental things can shift quickly, and what we ’loved’ and tried to hold on to yesterday is already passé today.
What remains – best way to be anyway – is to Live in the NOW – and to Live from and in LOVE, says LEO.
EmBodied Freedom.

 

I leave it with this now, thought you might appreciate an shorter Astro~News.

MERCURY in LEO (Aug 11 – 29): Speak from the Heart, Roar if Needed, and Show Yourself.

13 Aug

Yayyy – MERCURY came out of the Cancerian mental-emotional labyrinth that’s been on since early June – and also the main scene of the seasonal MERCURY retro phase throughout July – with a brief early LEO intermezzo.

Hopefully we’ve reflected and processed how we feel about these things – and maybe it would have been premature to put that into words… but it’s now.
MERCURY is also coming out of the last one of the post-retro phases – the ‘shadow’, on Aug 15 – the day of the Full Moon. Green light to communicate clearly, and be seen & heard.


With MERCURY in LEO we know what we want, and let the world know.
The ‘only’ (yet potentially glaringly obvious) thing is that the Messenger Archetype is considered ‘in fall’ in LEO – while ‘exalted’ in the polar opposite vibration of AQ. I.o.w., the mind ‘on LEO’ can get quite self absorbed – the world revolves around ME as a mental state, vs. in AQ, it can be more detached, interested in ‘the system’, group consciousness / humanity rather than the Self, and be innovative, even revolutionary.

Disclaimer: I’m talking generically about the Astro Weather here, not about particular people with MERCURY in LEO – since it’s always a unique blend of personality ‘ingredients’ that we carry, plus: we’re called to go to the centre of it all where we’re not identified with / attached to the expression.


But hey – now it’s time to be creative, show & shine…
Everything LEO (Love, Passion, Creativity, yet also the Inner Drama Queen / King and Narcissist) is brought to mind and wants to be communicated.
Best avenue / higher vibe of LEO: Be the Artist and Heart-ist!

 

 

Since MERCURY in LEO goes out of the post-retro shadow on the day of the Full Moon in AQ – LEO…
How about directing our energy to connecting from the Heart before / instead of roaring or making it all about ourselves…. and ‘randomly’ make Heart connections with ‘random’ people around us, not ‘just’ your sweethearts but even anonymously / in encounters with humanity.

But hey, why do we / they crave attention? 
Maybe ‘simply’ to be seen and loved.

YES, communicating from being loving of and proud of ourselves is totally in accord with MERCURY in LEO. 
Give yourself the Love you might miss from others, and tell yourself a new Love Story.

What do you LOVE about yourself?
What do you LOVE about LIFE?
How can you Live Life Lovingly?

And what would LOVE say?
Maybe….

MERCURY in LEO starts with a ROAR (and perhaps up-roar) on AUG 15 / 16, as MERCURY squares URANUS (freshly retro) in early TAU, and trines CHIRON retro in early ARIES!
Which could evoke some unexpected thoughts, and / maybe therapeutically cathartic verbal expressions round freedom from attachments. With CHIRON now retro (since July 8) in ARIES the Medicine is in authenticity – which of course can be vulnerable and raw. But a chance to show others who you really are, behind the veneer.

AUG 15 is also the day of the AQ – LEO FULL MOON (stay tuned for Astro~News specifically for this FM!) – where MERCURY joins the multiple-LEO Party – opposite the AQ MOON (watching the show? being the observer?).
So we’re in another ‘non boring’ and maybe quite dramatic phase (toned down by Planets presently retro).
Rather than going into mental-verbal and of course: dramatic ego mode
(which might be a temptation), can you find the Loving Place in your Heart from which to speak and act, towards yourself and with others?
What are your desires, when it comes to friendship and community?
What would you like to tell Humanity?

“Share your smile with a stranger, and be excellent with each other”, is what our LEO SUN Yoga teacher likes to say at the end of the class.

Next week, AUG 21 – 24, MERCURY will have 4 dates
(3 of them ‘awkward quincunxes that call for integration of what seems ‘strange’) with slower moving Astro Archetypes – their themes really needs to get our loving attention.
The winged Heart Messenger communicates to them in different ways:

It starts on AUG 21, with both a quincunx (exactly 5 signs apart) to SATURN retro in CAP which it rules, and a Fire Trine to JUPITER freshly direct in its own sign SAG. Both JUPITER & SATURN come out very ‘purely’ this year, since they are in their most natural respective Zodiac vibration.
So, here is the chance to address from the Heart what might be challenging (SATURN) – presenting itself as blocks & obstacles, old patterns & conditioning, fear & guilt, heavy energy that’s weighing on us – only to acknowledge it for its purpose, yet be done with it ruling our life – step by step towards the light. 
What does healthy Self Love say to those voices, and that ‘reality’?
And how does understanding of the Truth (JUPITER) give us perspective, space from the tightness of SATURN, new motivation, direction, trust in the abundance and gratitude for the goodness of Life?

On AUG 22, MERCURY goes into another quincunx,  to NEPTUNE retro in PISCES.
Here’s a dynamic between standing out and being seen with / from the Heart, and purrrhaps being passive, anonymous, and in mass consciousness. Or, reconciling these two energies, by being open, receptive, and in the faith & flow – inviting Life to ignite our passion. It  can dissolve the old – you might ‘even’ bathe in Love and release what you’re not anymore – with Love.

Then, in closure of the Planetary Dances for MERCURY in LEO comes another quincunx, with PLUTO retro in CAP, on AUG 24.
Unmasking outer AND inner power structures and their manipulation, through creativity and  passionate Heart communication – and creating transformation from within. Taking the mind out of the ‘time machine’, and into creativity mode. Bringing natural Power back.

 

More about the upcoming AQ – LEO Full Moon on AUG 15 very soon!
Until & beyond then:
Smile (authentically) more often, and practice Heart Language, Cosmic Strangers & Friends!

MERCURY Retro (July 7 – 31) in LEO – CAN – LEO: The Mind at Play – Cosmic RE-lief & Seasonal Toolkit

1 Jul

Dear Cosmic Friend!

 

Lots of shifts, inner and outer, in these first half of 2019, and over the last weeks…
Do you find that too?

Time to REflect, integrate and absorb – with MERCURY retro!

MERCURY has already traveled through CANCER from June 4 – 26.

Have you been in a mode of communicating from a caring, nurturing, compassionate, gentle place, with and on behalf of the family, tribe, children, the human family, and the family of all sentient Beings?
And literally: Have you talked to your Tribe? And to ‘others’ as if they were in your Tribe – because we ultimately are?!


For me, it’s been an epic Journey to my home country Bavaria, where language and mentality felt immediately very family-ar.

Lots of memories, and re-connections with family & friends!

Even though, MERCURY entered LEO on June 26 seems like there are still Cancerian realms to be re-visited and re-connected with, for another 3 1/2 weeks (July 19 – Aug 11 in retro-to-direct mode)!
Wow – that’s altogether a 7-week Journey of MERCURY in CANCER (really long – to be revealed why cosmically ‘prescribed’…)

 

MERCURY the Communicator / Messenger / Alchemist Planet is already in SCORPIO…since Oct 3 and will be in the most magical and transformational Zodiac energy until Dec 9! 9 1/2 weeks (ha – remembering that very scorpionic film?) is quite a record time for MERCURY in one sign.

Going with the Flow of MERCURY retro…

Technology, traffic / transport and communication glitches (or surprises!) sneaking in again lately?
Oh man, definitely happened for me, when I was going in delay loops to catch my overseas plane from Gatwick on June 26 – juuuust made it (was that ever a thrill, with Angels & Miracles involved, for sure!

Huge gratitude for the support of the winged ones to help me grow wings after all!).

No way? Are you telling me…..?
YEP, the inevitable is happening again:

MERCURY doing its retro somersaults again…

Another MERCURY Retro phase is coming UP, and already gearing UP!

In early LEO – late CANCER – early LEO this time (from 4°28′ LEO back to 23°57′ CAN, to be precise), from July 7 – 31.
This time wrapping around the ‘Creativity / Inner Child Point’ in the Zodiac.

Those of you who’ve read my MERCURY retro support REport (or even advocacy) over the years know:
M-r isn’t necessarily ‘BAD’ news, as pop Astrology would have it.
And hey – perhaps M-r is ‘even’ an overdue and cosmically well timed de-conditioning!

In a nutshell, with M-r, the Archetype of the MIND is operating differently / ‘unusually’, and tuned-up into a ‘New MERCURY’ (hey, what’s that???).


Have you noticed?
We’re already in the build-up (or rather: slow-down) phase!
Our good old messenger / trickster friend MERCURY has since Summer Solstice been in the pre-retro ‘shadow’
(i.o.w., crossed the 24° CANCER mark from which it will go direct again at the end of M-r, on July 31).

On June 26, MERCURY entered LEO (where it’ll be – in the early part only) until July 19.
Since Fri June 28, MERCURY is in
 stationary (very slowly moving) ‘U-turn storm’. 

And on Sunday July 7, MERCURY will ‘officially’ start its seasonal retro loop which goes technically until July 31, and rolls out completely until mid-August.

So, the whole month of July is under M-r influence.
Take it easy on the Summer holiday ‘plans’, and don’t get wrapped up in ‘loops’ that are directed by mental over-identification. It’s a good time to chill, go on a Summer RE-treat and RE-laxation, re-connect with dear ones, and catch up with lost & forgotten creative projects – a la CANCER.

 

What’s Special about this MERCURY Retro in LEO – CANCER – LEO?

As MERCURY goes retro in the early part of fiery LEO (with an ARIES undertone) plus, MARS the ruler of ARIES goes into LEO later today July 1 the energy shifts to a passionate & assertive warrior tone:
What are we now and still called to ‘roar’ and speak up about? Because we love and care for it / them?!
Of course, Mother Earth and all her Beings come to mind and heart immediately.
Esp. as I hear quite acutely from friends and family about more extreme early Summer heat waves and thunder storm ‘releases’ in Europe and elsewhere!
The way how ‘the system’ is treating Planet Earth isn’t sustainable, rather destructive, and can’t go on (SATURN retro / PLUTO retro / SN in CAP – being ‘exposed’ by the Full MOON / Partial Lunar Eclipse on July 16 and opposed by M-r in CANCER).
We have to find new ways of Being.
Because we love and care for the Earth, and all her Children.

And there are sooo many creative opportunties!
Let’s spread the news, and connect brains and hearts with one another!
Not so much from a place of protest and NO to what we don’t want anymore (the SATURN / CAP side).
But from a loving, caring YES (the CANCER side) – when we belong together we create together!

Time is precious (SATURN in CAP) – let’s share it with words of Love and Care.
Time to let our Hearts speak!

 

MERCURY’s Moves, and Dance with other Planets,
during its core Retro phase in July, and into August

JUNE 26
MERCURY entered LEO for the first time (until July 19).
Speaking from a heart- and soulful place, and in the LEO name of Living Life Lovingly!

 

JUNE 28
MERCURY in LEO went into pre-retro ‘storm’.
Take it easy on ‘plans’.
Get ready for synchronicities and synch’ with the flow & dance of life.

 

JULY 4
The MOON in LEO meets stationary / pre-retro MERCURY.
What are you passionate about?
Watch for ego attachments, and go for play & fun instead.

 

First half of JULY
MERCURY pre- and retro at the beginning of LEO (while MARS will be also in early LEO) almost in exact Fire Trine with stationary (going retro on July 8) CHIRON in early ARIES, and almost in exact square with URANUS in early TAURUS.
Experiment what it’s like to drop your attachment to a position.
Re-connect with the Inner Child. Notice how much people’s responses / reactions to one another originate in unconscious / unhealed Inner Child themes. Be compassionate with yourself and with them.
Speaking authentically and lovingly from the Heart and Soul
(maybe in a way you haven’t in a while and wouldn’t otherwise?) is Healing for All. 

 

JULY 7
MERCURY (at 4°28′ LEO) goes retro, until JULY 31 (back to 23°57′ CAN).
The Mind at Play… MERCURY retro in LEO is really a playful & mischievous Trickster.
MERCURY is considered ‘in Fall’ in LEO – because the mind can be soo easily hijacked by the ego. M-r is the chance to show us that we ‘show off’ and present a facade mostly because we’re actually insecure and seek attention to feel loved…

 

JULY 8
MERCURY freshly retro meets MARS in early LEO.
Having fun and showing it is cool. Bragging and beating others over the head with how ‘great’ you are is likely an over-compensation.

 

JULY 19
MERCURY retro re-enters CANCER (July 19) – time to reflect on memories and impressions, and their effect on your thinking-feeling mind.
M-r in LEO – CANCER – LEO is a good time to observe how your mentality and resulting communication is influenced by how safe (CANCER) and loved / loving (LEO) we think & feel we are.
Where have those basic needs been missing in childhood?
What gives you Love and Safety from within?
Who are YOU, beyond these impressions / expressions?

 

JULY 21
MERCURY retro meets the SUN on the CAN-LEO ‘Creativity Cusp’ –
Half-way point of the M-r Journey = ‘Day of Enlightening Insight’ / a ‘New Mercury’ is born.
The mind in service to the Heart and Consciousness.
What are your realizations about the quality of ‘mind’, memories, and reflections, and how can you express / maybe write or talk about it now?

 

JULY 24 
MERCURY retro in CAN meets VENUS.
Caring, loving communication… because you know…

 

JULY 30
At the end of its M-r Journey, in slow turnaround mode, MERCURY meets the dark MOON in CANCER, and goes almost exactly opposite PLUTO retro in CAP.
See the contrast between the Old and Transforming World and its shadows of commodification, exploitation, judgment, put-downs, ‘success’ at the expense of Nature, and the loving, caring, compassionate ways of Being & Creating.
A natural Retreating, Releasing
 & Clearing Energy…

 

JULY 31
Less than an hour after the New Moon in LEO (‘Living from Love’), MERCURY in CANCER goes direct again.
May the inward-backward turning and home-coming lead to a renewed way of seeing and interacting with the World – our Home!

 

AUG 8
MERCURY post-retro leaves the stationary ‘storm’.
Integration of the adjustment time – back into the ‘real world’, with a regenerated sense of self.

 

AUG 11
MERCURY out of retro (re)enters LEO (until Aug 29).
Show your Colours. From an authentic place.

 

 

Blessings for this Mercurial Immersion Time!

 

That’s the short version of / dip into my take on this upcoming MERCURY Retro.
If you’d like to dig deeper, and go with the full menu, keep on reading:

 

 

7-Phase Sequence of the MERCURY Retro Timeline 

  1. Pre-retro shadow – started on June 21. Mercury in the Epimethean phase.
  2. Pre-retro stationary / ‘storm’ – started on June 28.
  3. Mercury technically retro – from July 7 on.
  4. Mercury meets half-way in retro the SUN – a ‘New Mercury’ is born, a.k.a. ‘Point of Enlightening Insight’ – on July 21 – Promethean phase starts.
  5. Mercury direct again – on July 31.
  6. Post-retro stationary / ‘storm’ ends – on Aug 8.
  7. Post-retro shadow – until Aug 15.

 

The first half of M-r (phases 1. – 4.) is the Epimethean phase, RE-minding us of ‘old stories’ – which doesn’t have to be a ‘bad thing’ to overcome, it can be an important RE-flection inducer ;-).
And, as always, we learn so much from history / herstory, esp. with the CANCER tone of early childhood / family themes.

The second half of M-r (phases 4. – 8.) is the Promethean phase – where the new insights and connection with Spirit and Consciousness lead to new inspired direction – a very auspicious time.

 

MERCURY went into so-called pre-retro ‘shadow’ on June 21 (it passed for the first time the Zodiac point (24° \CANCER) from which it will after the retro phase go direct / forward again, on July 31).
Have you been noticing ‘foreshadowing’ themes since then of what might come up during M-r (re: home, belonging, needs, feelings)?

A good time to be fluid as quicksilver, RE-sponsive to higher intelligence, and to trust the ‘messenger from the future’, via intuition and precognition.
Perhaps you’re already having clarifying heartfelt communication and contemplation around ‘neglected’CANCER / LEO related themes (belonging, home, connection with the ‘tribe’, safety, caring & loving, strength, creativity, self expression…
).

 

MERCURY Retro in the Starters

On June 28,
MERCURY entered its stationary ‘storm’ period (moves very slowly), i.o.w., starts to go into ‘U-turn’ mode.

A time to also slow down the regular fast and busy mind that likes to multi talk / task.
‘Regular’ communication affairs might start to become ‘tricky’, ‘chaotic’, ‘complicated’ and ‘messed up’, but only from the perspective of the ego that likes to seize control via the mind.

MERCURY in ‘zigzag mode’ suggests being in flux and at ease, while swiftly and swimmingly / surfingly, changing course as necessary. Ironically, it can lead to a more auspicious outcome than the ‘on dead-end course’ that the mind assumed is ‘the way’.

 

7-Circle Classical Labyrinth by Helen Rowlands – reminds me of a brain

In the actual RETRO PHASE July 7 – 31 the mind is geared to turn inward-backward and moves may be paradoxical, like in a labyrinth. Very CANCERian too…

As always, the MERCURY retro cycle starts with the ‘Epimethean’ phase (first half – until July 21) where old (epic) stories, memories, and patterns show up for REasons yet unknown, REvealing themselves in the journey.

With the LEO /  CANCER energy of M-r, it’s good to stay in a joyful, child-like, magical mode, invite unexpected insights, a world of synchronicities, look at things again, in a fresh way, and: get retro-actively creatively inspired (by the past, by something overlooked). 

 

At the half-way point of the M-r phase (June 21 this time), MERCURY crosses paths with the SUN:
A new ‘New MERCURY’ (like a New Moon in the monthly SUN – MOON conjunction) is born – which happens 3 times a year.
It’s time to REgenerate the mind (MERCURY), become more conscious, follow Spirit and the Heart (SUN).
It is also called the ‘Point of Enlightened Insight’.

The second half of M-r (July 21 – 31!) is the ‘Promethean’ phase, where new insights and new Consciousness can be more easily creatively carried forward.

 

Here’s to a bright, liberating energy for break-throughs into more Freedom – from mental patterns, for a whole new way of showing up and being present with what IS, and simply: Freedom (beyond from and for)!

Check out what’s new and exciting!
And how YOU are NEW in every moment!

Timeless and Timely MERCURY Retro REminders

 

Under M-r., ‘usual’ thinking and communication patterns are being questioned, and it appears at times as if there was a trickster / little devil at play.
Actually, we have a chance now to see the inner mental trickster that’s been there all along, camouflaging and going unnoticed.
The challenge is not to get frustrated when things don’t turn out the way YOU thought they ’should’, according to the ego.

During M-r, experiment with, practice, and hopefully also integrate for later going with the flow of things in an intuitive way, and taking everything as a learning experience (learn from the Inner ‘Divine’ Child, with M-r in LEO-CAN-LEO)
That might mean changing your mind when you get the impulse / signal / intuition for an alternative course, being open to and curious about ‘creative detours’ that might lead to unexpected turns, and making unusual connections, rather than going with comfort, routine, and habit of your adult Self.

Rather than getting wrapped up with linear, habitual, and often self-limiting ways of dealing with information and communication channels and modes, an ‘unorthodox’ approach can open you up for serendipity, synchronicities, and lots of fun.

 

Let’s compassionately ask ourselves (M-r):
“How can I get out of the busy mind now, and shift  to Openness, Creativity, and Play?”
“What does my Inner Child need right now? How can I be a caring Mentor to him / her?”
“What would Love say or do??”
The guidance reveals itself with the question…

Let’s stay as mobile (like quicksilver, the MERCURY metal), adaptable, and unattached to ‘plans’ / agenda as possible.
MERCURY is a very light, youthful, fresh, fun-loving punster and Coyote / prankster energy.
It looks at the fun and also meaningful side of unusual twists and turns, and even likes to facilitate those. Aligning with that mode makes us happier and more at ease – not only – these days. 

Bring on these spontaneous twists, unintentional new-found puns, and creative fun realizations!
While being
 mindfully present and clear.

When it comes to committing to something long-term consider that it might not be ready to be definite yet. Yet you can make a choice to be in a vibration that attracts the perfect match that you easily recognize and connect with.
Give yourself time. During M-r new information streams in which can alter our outlook on things. Often, after the M-r phase we have more information which gives a different picture, based upon which a good choice becomes clear.

If we did commit prematurely and aren’t flexible to back off again easily, we might say, “Oh, if I only had known… I wouldn’t have changed course… and didn’t have to untangle complications.”

 

As always with MERCURY retro, clarify communication whenever possible:

  • Say things several times in a different way / language to make sure there’s no misunderstanding in a fast / distracted context. 
  • Talk in a caring & loving way (CANCER – LEO), not in a cold mechanical one.
  • Ask questions that intuitively come to mind (which might clarify an otherwise held assumption!).
  • Choose the most direct medium and tool available (meet and connect in person or at least via online video rather than over the phone, or email / message), which helps with a clearer and more holistic communication, mimic, body signals – more ‘channels’ are involved and signals are conveyed in person rather than on the phone, or via mutual messaging / e-monologue.
    And who knows what else might come up and be addressed when you take the opportunity to actually meet and talk?

 

If you become mercurially frustrated, maybe it’s because you needed to learn something about the nature of the human mind and its extensions as in: technological equipment which now, more than usually, seem to have ‘a mind of their own’…
Consider that computers, phones, and tech gadgets are servants and tools, and that their efficiency also depends on the (hopefully relaxed and detached, savvy and inventive) mind of their ‘master’. You don’t want to become a stressed-out slave of coordination and communication.

It might also become apparent during M-r that our tools and pieces of technical equipment magically morphically mirror the mind WE are in, even ‘simply’ by breaking down and being ‘on strike’ when we humans need ‘a break’ anyway.

Give your tools and tasks proper mindful and single-minded care & attention, one at a time, instead of attempting to multi task and ‘efficiently’ orchestrate everything simultaneously.
The electromagnetic field of computers and the human mind dialogue in an interface.
To keep it all smoothly operational, don’t impose any potential extra stress onto your nervous system nor on your computer.

 

Notice signals showing you need to be relaxed and mindful, assume nothing, drop your (under M-r evident, otherwise hidden) expectations and assumptions.
Foremost, trust the infinite Intelligence of the Universe, ‘even’ as it might take you on wild and ‘crazy’ journeys that you apparently haven’t signed up for. 🙂

 

Under M-r talk to people from the past who come to mind and whom you haven’t heard from in a long time (or ‘new’ yet familiar people whom you’ve just met and intuitively ‘clicked with’).
M-r also tends to bring back unfinished communication business from the past, esp. from previous M-r phases (last one in March 2019).

 

What happens quite often under M-r :
We receive / intuit a potentially interesting message for others that’s worth sharing and passing on – to whom it may concern. Go ahead and ‘randomly’ deliver/ spread it to others who need to hear that information and inspiration (without your personal agenda)!
We’re prompted to connect two or more people with one another – because we can. Who knows where it leads?
So, keep collecting communication karma cookies, by being the random messenger & connector of kindness!

Back to Basics & Buddhists:
Be mindful, and observe the phenomenon mind from a ‘meta’ level.
Like, by asking yourself:

Why am I really saying this?
Who’s the one thinking and talking here?

If we don’t do from time to time this ‘mental hygiene’ our inner ‘devil’s advocate – disguised as M-r – out tricks us, subconsciously ‘sabotaging’ our plans, second guessing ourselves, and constellating circumstances that make us back off from our original intention. So important to check what we’ve been doing with our brain – or rather, what the brain has been doing with us all along.

The Buddhists call the day-to-day mind that busies itself with all kinds of ‘chatting’ and inner stories, lists, and dialogues, the ‘Monkey Mind’ Trickster which, like a monkey, jumps from one tree (of interest and attachment) to the next, and is never quiet, unless we observe the movement, and thereby naturally calm it.

 

My Seasoned MERCURY Retro Tips & Seasonal Tool Kit 

 

The Thinker by Rodin (in front of the Rodin Museum in Paris)

1) Be easy on yourself, as you get into the groove of things.

It usually takes a week or so to adjust to the different mode.
Hopefully, you’ve taken it easy on the pre-retro shadow phase (since June 21), rather than being ‘pulled into’ the wild ‘storm’ (since June 28), or apparently stationary stuckness (can be either and both, in paradoxical trickster fashion).

 

2) Be mindful, and lead from what’s here-now. 

There’s a tendency for the mind to be distracted and all over the place, to loose and misplace things and thoughts that later have to be RE-trieved again in your ‘inner house’.
Avoid getting scattered and disorganized, collect the mind ‘pieces’, be present with any situation and function ‘at hand’, and don’t loose sight of what practically works and matters. The apparent priority of urgent ‘little’ things and ‘small stuff’ can easily be a distraction and waste of energy.
Practice coming back to the Here-NOW.

 

3) Retro is an inwards / backwards oriented energy.

M-r is a good time to RE-treat, and RE-visit meditation and mindfulness.
Also an excellent chance (if not necessity) to deal with ‘old unfinished business’, ‘loose ends’, and to clear communication themes from the past, often carried over from a previous M-r time (last one March 2019).

 

4) Every M-r phase is a great time to actively pursue basically everything that starts with ‘RE-‘, esp. RE-sidual communication.

Like: re-assess, re-align, read, re-treat, re-pair, re-boot, re-group, re-consider, re-arrange, re-place, you name it…
One RE-ason for me pointing out all these RE-activities:
During M-r (which also has a karmic undertone), we less likely get away anymore with being sloppy, and with procrastinating or neglecting RE-sidual communication issues with people from the past. They come up like a mirror. Talk about what RE-ally matters, with love & care a la LEO / CANCER.

 

5) Choose the clearest and most direct mode of communication available.

Phone rather than messaging / emailing. Meet and connect in person rather than  via phone / text, to make sure an actual dialogue happens (rather than just your factual monologue, with the assumption you know what they think, or they know what you think).
Consider communicating in several ways and via different media, to make sure the message comes across. Keep in mind that because people’s minds can be all over the place now, communication might be scattered and incomplete, or prone to assumptions: “I thought you got my email!!!”, or actually a monologue: Are you just thinking out loud as you talk, or are you actually suggesting something to me?

 

6) Be mindful & compassionate how you communicate with others.

Compassionately put yourself in their position, and take ownership and responsibility for your mental processes, rather than blaming and judging (possibly based on lack of communication).

 

7) Be clear and precise with commitments and agreements.

Double-check whether you’ve been understood correctly, and RE-peat / RE-phrase back to them too. Avoid signing an agreement before you have all the necessary information (often only after MERCURY retro is over, or at least half-way, meeting the SUN = July 21!).

 

8) MERCURY Retro RE-minds us…

…that direct connection with one another as an authentic and lively dialogue opens up the opportunity to meander (a la CANCER…) and touch on other subjects than the originally intended purpose of the communication. Which can eventually lead to an even more important outcome or direction than anticipated. Check out in hindsight why you actually needed to talk to that person…

 

9) Under M-r, the odds for fabulous unexpected synchronicities are 99%:

When we act more intuitively and out of the ordinary, we let the spontaneous intervention of the Universe show us our interconnectedness! Way cool and fun!

 

10) M-r is a good time to RE-connect with people you have lost sight of.

With the LEO – CANCER flavour, re-connect with people whom you have a natural familiarity with, and with whom your encounters are playful, even childlike – so healing for your Inner Children!
Trust your intuition, and let yourself be surprised by what shows up when you speak to them.

 

11) The themes and areas of life (partners, children, career, groups, etc.) that THIS retro phase brings up for YOU…
…depend on the Planet/s and House/s that M-r activates in YOUR personal birth chart, in other words where CANCER / LEO is situated.

I’m happy to check that out for and WITH you – either in a quick hint, or in a focused (or longer) session at this occasion if more is going on for you…

 

12) When ‘glitches’ occur, be fluid and flexible like quicksilver (MERCURY’s metal), think “shift happens”.

Don’t judge yourself or others (that CAP quality) for not being ‘better’ or on the same page as you, and turn the paradigm around:
What could be the opportunity in this mishap? And what’s actually funny about this?
RE-frame your way of thinking about things. And entertain the possibility that you might have subconsciously ‘arranged’ a wild alternative to the original ‘plan A’ which – who knows? – might lead to something new and better and more fun than what the ‘normal’, ‘usual’, ‘regular’, and apparently most  ‘efficient’ mind-in-rut-mode could have come up with?

 

13) Enjoy those unintentional puns, slips, and new connections in the mind, be creative and brainstorm – esp. together with your MERCURY Retro Friends 😉

 

14) Enlightened Insights, anyone…?
The Day of Enlightened Insight – when M-r meets the SUN on the exact half-way point of the M-r phase is in this round on JULY 21 – check out what epiphanies and paradigm shifts occur round this day!

 

15) If you would like to know…

  • Whether you are a member of the RETRO CLUB (born under MERCURY Retro, as yours truly),
  • In which area of Life the Retro Trickster would likely play tricks on / with you,
  • How to consciously, creatively, and mindfully play WITH the energy,

….feel welcome to get in touch with your Astrologer.

MERCURY in CANCER (June 4 – 26 & July 19 – Aug 11) – Memories & Reflections, Inner Landscape of the Mind…

4 Jun

Dear Astro~News Blog Reader,
noticing a shift in the mental landscape?

Today, one day after the New MOON (ruling CANCER) in GEMINI (which is ruled by MERCURY), MERCURY moves into CANCER!
Can you see the cosmic Moon-Gemini-Mercury-Cancer dance in this theme?
Lots of mental-emotional stimulation on this day – offering us the opportunity if not necessity to be extra mindful.

I call the GEM – CAN cusp that MERCURY moves over and which links MERCURY and the MOON the ‘MIND / Rapport Point’.
Why?
Once I attended a Buddhist talk where I learned for Buddhists the intellectual mind and the emotions are in one continuum of ‘Mind’. Makes perfect sense to me, since thoughts evoke emotions and emotions have their voices, and lead to thoughts… A lot going on in this realm these days, and Astrology reflects this.
I call GEM – CAN also the Rapport Point since to built rapport we need to have a mental and emotional connection, getting each other mentally, and sharing from a loving, nurturing place.
Let’s make a point of being in good rapport with the world – not just, but maybe esp. reminded of – these days.

So here we go: Winged Messenger entering the Cancerian Waters today!

 

MERCURY in CANCER (June 4 – 26 & July 19 – Aug 11; due to  M-r July 7 – 31):
Memories & Reflections, Inner Landscape of the Mind…

Crab_Perspective

Crab Perspective… and Family Time…

MERCURY’s move into CANCER invites us into playful, creative imagination, after the intellectual, information driven MERCURY in GEM over the last weeks.

MERCURY in CAN (until June 26, and again, during & post M-r July 7 – 31) brings out memories and reflections, and is rather inward-backward oriented.
This mercurial energy can be also well channeled into communicating from a caring, nurturing, compassionate, gentle place, with and on behalf of the family, tribe, children, the human family, and the family of all sentient Beings
.

I.o.w.: Talk to your Tribe! And talk to ‘others’ as if they were in your Tribe – because we ultimately are.

The shadow / pitfall of MERCURY in CANCER is an emotional ‘overlay’ of information processing, and lack of objectivity. Information is filtered through feelings which can be a moody (CANCER is ruled by the MOON and ebb – tides like: “Today it seems like this, but who knows how I read / hear it tomorrow, and what it reminds me of”.
CANCER’s got the best memory of them all which is where the mind (MERCURY) can be pulled into now, for better: bring on the stories and throwbacks! or worse: these ghosts from the past have a life of their own, and in hindsight it can me always be nostalgic or…haunting. 

MERCURY is this time in CANCER for 3 + more than 3 = more than 6 weeks altogether – a substantial window to look into the inner landscape, and ask: 
How does this and that information make me FEEL?
Where do these feelings originate?

Dreams can be very enhanced now too (of course even more so closer to the Full Moon on June 17, and at the PLE on July 16) can be brought to consciousness (I’m already noticing that lately – you too?).
Which reminds me of one of Carl G. Jung’s famous works Memories, Dreams, and Reflections
The Swiss psychologist C.G.J. * July 26, 1875, was born under a LEO SUN / URANUS (ruler of his AQ Rising – a brilliant man indeed!), and VENUS / MERCURY in CAN.
“I can understand myself only in the light of inner happenings.” – very apropos his MERCURY in CAN.

 

Quite the activated first MERCURY in CANCER weeks to come, esp. on June 7, and around the next Full Moon (June 16-19):

MERCURY in CAN triggers almost all planetary Archetypes (ha, Jung – the ‘grandfather’ of Archetype awareness in the modern world – would love this), and their patterns with one another.

Chronologically in this sequence:
LILITH, URANUS, CHIRON, NEPTUNE, JUPITER, SATURN, MARS, PLUTO.
I.o.w., the whole Zeitgeist and its Archetypes can be seen through the lens of the mind, reflected in our emotional field, and communicated back ‘out’ again.
Since it all happens in a such concentrated time window, the themes below can be activated almost at once, and you might feel yourself be expressing all of them simultaneously / interchangably:

 

  • June 4
    MERCURY enters CAN:
    Building Rapport. Offering nurturing messages from / for the ‘Inner Landscape’.
    Talk with your Tribe, and create a Tribe atmosphere.

 

  • June 7
    MERCURY in CAN in Water trine with LILITH in PI, in sextile with URANUS in TAU, and in square with CHIRON in AR:

    Follow natural instinct that leads you to the flow of life, messages of the body and grounded intuition. Speak in authentic, maybe raw and vulnerable ways that touch the Heart.

 

  • June 16 – also the day of the JUPITER – NEPTUNE square
    MERCURY in Water trine with stationary NEPTUNE in PI, quincunx JUPITER retro in SAG opposite SATURN retro & the South Node in CAP:
    Facing ‘old world’ authorities with cold, rigid, heavy, righteous, separative agendas (incl. the inner one)? Don’t take the blame / don’t take things on that aren’t yours. What matters in the long run, and at ‘the end of the day’? Can you let go of the rest? What would the Inner Authority / Inner Elder, and the bigger picture / a wider outlook on the situation say?
    Meditation and perhaps mediation are indicated, speaking with Elders and tuning into traditions is a healthy expression of this ‘polarity’.

 

  • June 18
    MERCURY meets MARS in CAN:
    Watch angry thoughts and the sharp tongue, and don’t let them get the better of you.  No need to let them out on your friends. Feelings can get easily hurt on a day like this. Tomorrow you might already feel and think differently about it all. The energy is well channeled into passionately co-advocating FOR something, and bravely tracing the origin of your feelings, thoughts, anger, and passion.

 

  • June 19
    MERCURY (and MARS) oppose PLUTO retro in CAP:
    Speaking on behalf of our human family, in the face of where the world seems to go:
    How can this lifestyle be sustainable, for the next Seven (or less?) Generations to come? 

    Also, a good time to reconnect and communicate with Family and Ancestors (alive or in other realms, Spirit Ancestors, as well as the Inner Spirit Elder). And to go into dialogue with your Inner ‘Wild’ True Nature that shows you where you’re respected and regenerated.

 

  • June 21 – The SUN enters CANCER – Summer Solstice!
    Light on Warmth, Compassion and Kindness

 

  • June 26
    MERCURY enters LEO – for the time being, until July 19 when it re-enters CAN in its next retro phase – more about that one in an upcoming blog post.Speaking from a heart- and soulful place, and in the LEO name of Living Life Lovingly!

 

Blessings for a gentle & mindful first phase of MERCURY retro in CANCER!

MERCURY in TAURUS (May 6 – 27) – What do You truly Enjoy & Value?

3 May

Dear Astro~News Friends!

What an animated, activated, and accelerated phase it’s been, with MERCURY and also VENUS in ARIES since Apr 16 / 20.
And on top of it, MERCURY in ARIES (ruled by MARS) has been in mutual reception with MARS in GEMINI (ruled by MERCURY).

Ready to mentally settle, after all the rush and action?

The Mercurial Inner Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype, is about to settle in TAURUS – until May 22!
Buuut, it will pass unpredictable and not settled at all URANUS first – right at the Taurean entrance ‘gate’ on May 8.
And even though MERCURY is in slooow TAURUS it’s moving quite fast now, approaching its connection with the SUN on May 21 – also the day when both the SUN and MERCURY enter GEMINI. That’s the point furthest away from Mercury retro / right between retro phases.

Some paradoxes right there – only for the linear, habitual mind, wondering… 
How does that go together?
And what are the gifts of that ‘strange’ combo?

 

Purple Delights (with grounded yet light ‘winged’ sandals) – Photo by Melanie 2019

TAU is grounded, slow, embodied, communicates and learns through all the senses, and not just via the brain. Don’t chew on things too much with your mind. Ask the body!
Smell the grass, the Spring, the roses, be in the Camas fields if you’re in Victoria – good Medicine for the otherwise too overrated and busy brain!
Patience is a good TAU virtue too, and can allow YOU to relax and slow down the pace…

Yet, TAURUS is a fixed energy that can settle into or get stuck in what it considers enjoyable, comfortable, or simply habitual.
Together with the Awakener URANUS now in TAU, met by MERCURY on May 8, the Buddhist wisdom teachings 101
related to attachments are very apropos (and are always a good call for TAURUS anyway – lol)

First step is to acknowledge our attachment to not getting what we want, or to being stuck with what we don’t want, and to realize that it is the attachment that causes the suffering, not the ‘thing’ in itself.

How can we release / free ourselves from attachment?

Realization of how it all works (quite simply in fact) is already a huge freedom catalyst – for me anyway. Basically noticing: Hey, I’m doing this to myself. It’s not the situation, it’s what my mind makes out of it that causes the frustration.

Also, a key piece is to embrace impermanence.

No pain, problem, discomfort lasts forever. No pleasure and enjoyment either. So let’s not get so worked up and graspy or resistant, and relax in the ‘storm’.

Which naturally allows for the liberating process to go where it needs to go.

And we can turn to and feed ourselves with what we truly value and enjoy (TAU) without compulsion, attachment, or other fixations.

 

What could that look like?

  • Sloooowing down, tuning into the Body and our Senses.

  • Asking ourselves: Where do I physically belong and need to ground myself?
  • Maybe we need to take ourselves to magical spots. Mercury is also the magician, and, esp. with its VIRGO rulership, rules ‘practical magic’ – tools and physical places (TAU) that transform, re-align, help, and heal.

  • Letting go of being attached to and stuck in (TAU low vibe) mental (MERCURY) patterns, habits (TAU), gravitations, ruts. In fact, let’s get un-stuck. Very timely now.

  • Buying less, enjoying more.

  • The mind habitually attaches itself randomly to things that we have an affinity to, desire for, aversion against, and present them as interesting to engage in (almost like a shop keeper presenting his window display) – very Taurean. Our habit is to give in, and engage mentally with those ‘offers’. Our job and in fact freedom is ‘just’ not to buy it.

  • Let’s tune into what brings us true intrinsic joy (not derived from ‘getting’ and consuming more on the outer level).

  • Let’s re-connect with what we truly value.

  • Let’s follow the messages (MERCURY) of the Body (TAU).

  • Which can attune us differently, and shift a lot quite fast – paradoxically.

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!

 

Presently, until May 12 / Mother’s Day, ASTRO~SPA for Moms is on!
As a mom, treat yourself, or treat a mom to a 20% discounted Astro~Alchemy session!
