• Mercury stations direct at 11°38’ in the sign of Scorpio (antiscion 18°22’ Aquarius) after its 20-day retrograde period which started on 31st October.

    It’s now time to get things moving again after having the opportunity to re-think matters especially in the areas of our lives regarding how we consistently respond to emotional cues and how we might be able to change those habits if we believe them damaging. If you were busy hiding secrets during this retrograde now is the time that they will pop out of the closet…which could be embarrassing.

    Sabian symbol for 12° Scorpio: “An official embassy ball.” Indicating group-consciousness, as it flowers at the highest level in cultural interchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class.

    For the antiscion at 19° Aquarius: “A forest fire is being subdued by the use of water, chemicals and sheer muscular energy.” Indicating the skill and courage necessary to bring under control the destructive potential of carelessness of karmic “visitations”.

    What have you learnt or re-thought during this retrograde period and how are you planning to move forward now?
