April 24, 2017. Welcome to a new week. The Venus/Saturn square energy from Friday is winding down. The fiery assertive Aries Moon kicks the week off. Today Mercury Retrograde energizes Saturn in a trine. Sounds like a good time to follow up on missed details. Make some phone calls that should have been made earlier. Some possible surprises, kickstarts, ideas, rambunctiousness tomorrow when the Moon touches Uranus and Mercury. I’m inspired to finish up the upcoming article on the Lunar Node sign change before the end of the month— or maybe in time for Wednesday’s New Moon in Taurus. Enjoy your week.
More on Mercury retrograde…
April 15, 2017. Venus is now Direct. Keep in mind that we’re still in energy of the Venus first quarter square to Saturn which has been active this month. The 2nd square is April 21. Plenty of time continue reflecting on values, relationships, and yes, money. What decisions are good ones for you? For me, I’m thinking rather than doing anything I might regret later, I’ll reevaluate on the 21st and consider Mercury Retrograde.
April 10, 2017. Full Moon in Libra. Potent, expansive with Jupiter keeping her company. A great time to remember balance and beauty. Choose your companions wisely. Learn from those who have dissimilar beliefs. Expand your mind with others. Open to Natural & True Wisdom.
April 9, 2017. Calm down. Continue to focus on personal needs. Take care of some unfinished practical matters. Mercury in Taurus is Retrograde until May 3. The emphasis on core needs continues. What do you want? Journal, gather information, write down your highest values, and investigate your Deeper Self. Sound just like Venus Retrograde? Yep, with more focus on the mind and use of the left brain.
We might find that there are some practical Taurus tasks to complete during this time related to money. Last week I was asked whether it is a good time to write a Will. It’s perfectly good time for that. Outline the Will. Write it. Edit it. Revise it. Keep in mind what YOU want. Just wait until after May 3, to review the document, before signing it.
Some of us could use this time to improve our communication and writing skills. I just returned from the 2nd Annual Okanagan Writer’s Festival and have a pile of ideas about writing projects and am inspired to off my services as a writer. The next three weeks can be used for planning, researching and decision-making.
By April 19, when Mercury conjoins with the Sun at 0° Taurus, there is more clarity on the true purpose of this cycle.
On April 28, Mercury conjoins with Uranus in Aries. Wait for it! Won’t take long for spontaneous, unusual or inventive ideas to emerge. Clarification about an exchange that happened around March 26, may need to be revisited, and finalized by May 9. Pay attention to monkey mind and avoid verbal accidents. Find ways to calm down, if this transit generates mental stress. Meditation, or the Bach Flower remedy, Impatiens, can be useful . I like the Biochemic Tissue Salt called Kali Phosphoricum, as it correlates to Aries and calms the nervous system.Share, please and thank you.
