MERCURY STATIONS RETROGRADE IN LIBRA
Mercury stations retrograde at 25°28’ Libra (antisicion 4°32’ Pisces) and is conjunct the fortunate Fixed Star Arcturus. Mercury will station direct at 10°07’ Libra on 18 October.
The last time Mercury was retrograde in Libra, albeit for a short time before re-entering Virgo, was in September 2009.
In the sign of Libra, Mercury finds its more tactful side, eager to please (or rather eager not to have to discuss/argue) it is at its complacent best here. A master of playing with words but even when critical never [...]
FULL MOON IN PISCES
I feel you
The Full Moon will occur at 28°14’ Pisces (antiscion 1°46’ Libra).
The Moon is separating from a conjunction to retrograde Neptune, emotional oneness and empathy stand out strongly but the Sun in Virgo takes a more critical view of life and prefers practicality and order over chaos, will we be able (and willing) to find a compromise?
Retrograde Jupiter in Aquarius, dispositor of the Moon is exactly trine Mercury in Libra which is the dispositor of the Sun. Mercury is also conjunct the fortunate Fixed stars Spica and Arcturus. Plans for a [...]
MARS ENTERS LIBRA
Mars isn’t particularly happy in the sign of Libra, the sign of its detriment. It’s one of Venus’s home signs and of course fiery Mars can’t possibly be content with all that “harmony and goodwill to all” crap but the good news is that until the 7th of October Venus is travelling through Scorpio so the two planets are enjoying what is known as “mutual reception” (each in one another’s signs) indicating that they should aid each other if need be (but with both planets in each other’s detriment we could more or less liken them to two[...]
VENUS ENTERS SCORPIO
After a stay in flirtatious Libra, one of its home signs, Venus, the planet of values (what WE value and desire), love and finances, enters the “still waters run deep” sign of Scorpio on the 10th September.
In Scorpio, Venus is in her mythical lover’s nightime den (one of them, the other being in Aries).
Venus in Scorpio can lend itself to uncanny ways of seduction with psychological abuse and mental cruelty not being unknown. On the other hand, it’s powerfully attractive and very passionate. Venus in Scorpio, as in Aries, is [...]
NEW MOON IN VIRGO
Are all the details out in the open?
On the 6-7th of this month (depending in which part of the world you are) there will be a New Moon at 14°38’ Virgo, a Mutable, Earth sign ruled by Mercury (antiscion 15°22’ Aries).
A lunation chart heavy in Air and Earth element with no planets in Fire and only one in Water. Planning ahead in a practical way with no illusions and even less enthusiasm and intuition. The Modalities are well balanced in this chart.
The New Moon is exactly trine retrograde Uranus in Taurus and quickly approaching an opposition to Neptune, [...]
