|And here it is. Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio. The fleet footed messenger slows down and has us looking back at where we can deepen our communication with ourselves (what internal messages are you giving yourself??) and where we’ve been obsessing over things out of our control.
This is going to be an intense week, no way around it with a Sun/Mars retrograde opposition on Tuesday and a Sun/Pluto square on Thursday. But here’s how to use this energy to your advantage. Overthrow your routines. Here’s a great article on how to do that. https://www.thecut.com/article/how-to-make-a-schedule-daily-routine-time-management-tips.html
What does this article have to do with Astrology? Everything. Mercury Retrograde gives us a do-over, a chance to dig into the closets of our lives, create new routines and straighten everything up, reorganize our thoughts, beliefs and methods of accomplishing things. With it in Scorpio-it means go deeeeeep, live life all the way to the core.
So instead of raging against a machine you have no control over, be constructive and deliberate in your life, and determined to build something that suits who you are today, rather than who you have been.
The Libra New Moon on Friday supercharges any action you take now towards bringing balance into your life for many months to come. This is a big week-don’t fight the current.
See love. Be love.
Aries (March 21-April 20) Feeling a little put out by a close associate or your partner’s need for answers? Impatiently waiting for them to make an important decision that impacts you? The time you’re being given is an opportunity to make sure you really trust their motives. If you can’t be ok with whatever their decision is, maybe there’s a bigger problem in the relationship.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Promises made, promises broken, promises made and then probably kept. But that’s not a promise. LOL! That kind of sums up your week. Your part in this back and forth, unsure time is to be clear as to what you actually want. What’s your goal here? Because even if someone or some system lets you down, if you have a vision, you can always find another way to reach the brass ring.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) This week you push yourself beyond limits to the amazement of others. It’s like you’ve overdosed on monster drinks. Pace yourself, but expect to accomplish a lot. With all this intensity, don’t expect anyone to keep up-patience is a virtue. This is a great week for solidifying partnerships, planning your next move at work, and definitely-most definitely expressing appreciation for all you have right now, in this moment before you run off chasing the next butterfly.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) This can be a turning point week for you, Cancer, as you realize you’re farther and farther away from issues of the past that had weighed you down for so long. Say goodbye, freshen up your home/workspace/creative space and look ahead. Our experiences will always be a part of us, but they don’t have to ruin our lives. Feel the feels and let it go.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Get to the source of any projects or problems instead of just band-aiding them. If you’re struggling with a decision between heart and mind, in all things right now, follow your heart. Your 3rd house of communication is highly active now and you may find yourself having to find the just-right words in a multitude of situations so if you follow what feels most loving and compassionate, you’ll get it right. Oh that also means what feels right for YOU, not just for others-don’t forget yourself. Balance, balance, balance.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) You’ll be attracted to a mystery and it can take you down a crazy rabbit hole. Some things just don’t make sense in this world, but even if there’s no rhyme or reason or someone’s behavior, you’ll learn a lot as you dig for the truth. Tension around finances comes to a head and once you release perceived control, things flow again.
Libra (September 23-October 22) What would you say if I told you this could be the most powerful time of the year for you to turn your life around? Would you be excited? Terrified? Both? Yeah, that’s this week for Libras. This may be one of the most liberating, but challenging weeks you’ve had in a long time and all I can tell you is to be sure that you are walking your talk-if you’ve been in alignment, you’ll find everything lines up for you quickly. If you’re looking to change your career, reach out to mentors, former bosses, etc. to see what connections/direction they can give you. Raise your expectations of yourself. If relationship struggles come to a head, pay attention. Are you really still interested in fighting for something you don’t want?
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) You’ll be led back (or to) a spiritual path that intensifies your intuition. If you feel others aren’t taking you seriously, choose your words more carefully. Listen to your inner voice and let it direct you to the bottom line of what you’re trying to communicate. Slow and steady and staying detached -keeping that observer’s view of things works best. Listen closely to what people are saying, and then speak your truth with confidence and conviction.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) A past romantic partner reaches out and has you wondering if this relationship has a second life to it. It might, but the key here is to keep your emotions in check. Focus more on creative projects, things you just LOVE to do so that you don’t become lost in their world. Invite others into yours. A lot of what is coming up for you has little to do with how others “make” you feel and more to do with deeper emotions that have been ignored. Feel it all but remember who you are.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Interesting opportunities you thought were lost pop up again. Be ready to promote your talents. You’ll need to respond to correspondence pretty quickly in order to take advantage of fast moving situations. Dress for success and network as much as possible.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) It’s time to make some difficult decisions as it’s now super clear that some things just aren’t working anymore. If you’re experiencing a betrayal from a co worker or friend, don’t jump to conclusions, but consider whether it’s been a long time coming and now you’re just ready to make the cut. Whether it’s job related, romance, personal beliefs or changes to your own lifestyle, if it seems to be pulled out from under you, consider it a blessing. You’re turning a huge corner.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) You’ll want to keep to yourself as much as possible this week and allow some of the new knowledge and wisdom you’ve recently acquired to assimilate into your daily life. Give yourself a break and enjoy quiet pleasures like a spa day or perusing book stores or museums if they’re open (or online if you prefer). Give yourself time to enjoy your own company.
