Yesterday on Monday September 7 12:45am (EDT)
Mercury turned retrograde at 6 Libra 13. Normally I would have put up a post reminding everyone about this retograde a few days ago, but to me the punch of the week is all about Pluto's move on the 11th and I kind of feel 'ho hum' about Mercury. But just to remind everyone, Mercury rules communication so you need to slow down and really listen. Sure you are hearing people but are you listening?
This retrograde is taking place in the sign Libra which rules relationships and partners. Not just that person you snuggle with under the morning covers but also your partners at work and any endeavors that are in your life. Libra likes to share which is beautiful but Libra also can be lost in 'grey'. Nothing is black or white for them, they need to process and process and process information. While Mercury is moving backward we will all need to take a breath and really think and listen and weigh everything out. A fast, quick move could cost dearly.
On September 17 Mecury will make a nasty square with Pluto. This will be a call back to August 26 when they first got into a tangle. You may have a revisit to something from that week. Then later in the day on the 17th, 11:26pm (edt) Mercury will move into mental case Virgo. So, we'll go from concerns about our partnerships to concerns about our health and schedule. Curiously, the next day will begin a new moon in Virgo where once again we MUST look at our schedule and decide who is driving the show... is it you or your calendar? How perfect Mercury moves back into the sign before the New Moon. It is is as if Mercury is acting like the blessed canary into the coal mine. If you look at your schedule and you feel like your calendar is making you sick.... guess what, it is. Start cleaning up your daily life. If you don't have time for the important things, family, friends, exercise, eating properly---then FIX it. Remember if you don't fix shit, the Universe will. And that is always a bitch and a half. You have until September 29th 9:13am (Edt) to get that schedule fixed.
Peace be with you.
