Good News all! The end to the current hardship stint of Mercury-retrograde influence is almost in sight!! 🙂
Mercury began its retrograde motion at the end of August’16, at 29’05” Virgo (Virgo is ruled by Mercury..so extra powerful). We then went into an Eclipse portal (set of Eclipses separated by 14 days.. 1st Sept to 16th Sept).
Eclipses are cosmic accelerators.. so whatever issues that Mercury Retrograde was bringing to the surface will have been additionally intense.. as the Heavens interrupt our flows and progress..to make us stop and deal with those issues.. !!
And now.. in a few days, Mercury retrograde motion comes to a halt.. (stationary.. at 14’50” Virgo, on 22nd sept.. just hours before the Autumn Equinox ..which is a time of balance of dark & light). And then Mercury begins to go direct again.. through the sign of Virgo. So you’ll start to see progress again..
However, it will only reach its previous `spot’ in virgo around 6th October.. So till , you’ll still be `cleaning up’ personal issues/ matters..
I’d say ..make use of the energies now building up towards Autumn Equinox… along with mercury-direct motion. The synchronicity of these two stellar events are uncanny.. and conspire to help us make true inner shifts…as painful as recent few weeks will have been..
Bright Stellar Blessings.

Hoorah! Mercury goes direct tonight around 21:50hrs gmt! 🙂
It started retrograding on 6th January, at 1’Aquarius, slipped back into Capricorn and got to 14’Capricorn.. Tonight he goes direct..and will reach Aquarius again on 14th Feb..and back to where it was on 15th Feb.
So the review & re-discovery time is now concluding…and renewing and re-directing begins for the next 20 days..
Where were you (internally, mindfully) on 5th January? Think back to it…and do things different now.. so that when that same turning point happens in 20 days time…it’s not your path anymore..and that you are on a parallel route (for a short while) but heading in a different motorway
Good Fortune !
Hi all.. Astrological aspects for the coming week..and there are some big ones.. (Don’t forget new moon on 13th oct in Libra). Libra is also where Mercury has been retrograding ..and is just about to go direct this afternoon..(few hours from now).
Bright Stellar Blessings.
ps. Haven’t done this in a while.. and with the Mercury about to go direct (in an important sector of my own chart).. it seems the path is clearing fo me too.. Yes, the Stars affect even us Astrologers.. no matter how much well prepared we are.. we are all at their mercy!
Astrology is not always about `bad news’ – and here’s some excellent ones.. !
Mercury has been retrograding since late June’13 and today comes to be stationary in Cancer…and starts going direct! This is good.. in case you have been one of those millions pf people experiencing wrangles in life, missed opportunities, arguments, mental stress, conflicts…as well as issues with contracts, communications, and even the odd squabbles with your siblings!
All that should be clearing away here onwards..! Commercial ventures can go forward. Those teething internet problems can disappear.. and hopefully even the local trains and buses will run on time..
From the graphics here, you can see that…Mercury ..although going direct now…has some days too go..before it gets to the spot in Cancer it was…before it started going backwards! So between now (21st July) and about 4th August, there’ll be time to start resolving those matters.. clearing up issues that have come up in the past 3-4 weeks.. before making new progress!
That’s not all the good news..!
We have already experienced the grand trine between Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune.. Now it’s the turn for Mars…which will form (later today) trines with Saturn and Neptune..! And in 2 days, Mars will also conjunct with Jupiter..
The key points to focus..are the symbolisms of Saturn (authority, parental issues, long term plans and structures, material security), Neptunian matters (dreams, ideals, psychology, inner beauty, intuition & psychic matters), and of course Jovial (Jupiter) qualities.. such as expanding horizons, exploring religion, law, philosophy, higher education.. and so on. All these energies become connected to Aries people..through these aspects so it’s there…Just `tune in’ and be positive!
This is good for Aries people..who may have started to wonder ..in the past few days.. why things suddenly got bad to worse for them …despite feeling edgy for 3 weeks.. under the influence of mercury retro. That’s because Uranus just started retrograding in Aries few days ago…and will do so for 5 months.. (see next blog post on this)
the trines & Conjunction Mars forms will give Aries people a boots.. Main thing is to store up that boots and positivity..so that even when the gets rough for the next few months.. you’ll know it will all change..!
