|Predictions in Astrology can be somewhat like predicting the weather. The atmosphere sets up certain conditions and we know from similar events in the past what has happened with those particular conditions. But other atmospheric conditions are also happening that were not necessarily in place when that previous storm came through, so will it look exactly like the storm that happened before? Or will it fizzle out, head out to the ocean? Forecasting in Astrology is similar– the planets line up in certain ways and we know from past cycles this is what happened, but there are other planetary conditions and events that are different. So, we do the best we can to bring it all together, synthesize the information and make our predictions. But we are often surprised by extraordinary twists and turns because…humans/free will and other factors in play.
So here it is. Election week with Mercury and Mars retrograde and we’re all trying to figure out what’s going to happen. As I’ve told you before, the last time we had a Mercury retrograde on an election (it was stationed to retrograde on election day) was 2000’s Bush/Gore and if you remember, it was the year we learned about hanging chads and recounts and it took seemingly forever to definitively know who our next president would be and who won some of the closely contested Senate races in some areas.
It’s interesting that for many years, knowing this time was looming, I’ve been feeling like it will be nearly impossible for anyone to know who is going to win for a long time. However, just this morning I woke up with the thought…since Mercury is preparing to go DIRECT this time, meaning it’s coming OUT of retrograde on the 3rd, perhaps this could mean we WILL know very quickly who the clear winner is. And as I sipped my morning coffee, and scrolled my social media, I saw a post from Astrologer Michele Avanti who was pondering this very thing. So, I’m hoping great minds think alike LOL! and this could mean we will at least be able to move on from all of this by Wednesday morning.
Regardless, as in every single election since the birth of this country, not everyone will be happy and with Mercury in square to Jupiter, no matter what happens, there will be an explosion. And with Jupiter involved, many legal issues at the very least.
So, let’s find the silver lining. Well, no more political ads! We will have exercised our right to vote- a powerful tool many in this world do not have, and it will be out of our hands (let it go, let it go!!). And I am going to hold the space for a fast resolution to the process, a collective sigh of relief and a great release of tension that has been the elephant in the room for so long.
Jupiter expands whatever comes in contact with it, so as Mercury in Libra (balance/fairness) touches this benevolent planet, use this energy to see the bigger picture. Hold the high watch for peace and compromise. Remember, we are literally all on a spinning rock hurtling through space. Together.
Aries (March 21-April 20) As Mercury turns direct in your relationship house, you’ll feel the shift in your partnerships. Truth comes out along with new ways of connecting from the heart, and stronger commitments take shape. Have you been keeping some thoughts/feelings from your spouse/partner? Holding close to some ideas at work? Perhaps it’s time to share.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Save your speech til the end of the week when others will “hear” you better. At work, coworkers jump on board. At home, your spouse/partner is more receptive to thoughts and ideas. There’s opportunity for improvements in health- maybe joining a gym, walking, or finding a new way to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) You’re persuasive, and luck is on your side. Been talking about needed improvements at work or home? Remember that idea you filed away for “just the right time”? This could be it. In the relationship arena, a flirtation lifts your spirits and could lead to something more.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) An emotional situation needs to be viewed from a detached perspective to help you know how to proceed. It’s often easier to be outside of a circumstance to see it more clearly. Ask a non-biased friend for their point of view.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Monday calls for clear skies for communication. Have some old friends you’ve been wanting to reach out to? Time to get in touch and reconnect. Make some plans or confirm some “maybes” that have been hanging out there.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) You accidentally find a new passion/hobby that sends you down the rabbit hole of information gathering. Enjoy this new research ride but be careful not to get lost for too long. Delegate tasks at work and with kids- free yourself up a bit. Avoid picking up the tab when others can contribute.
Libra (September 23-October 22) Avoid people pleasing. Remember, you won’t please everyone all of the time- you’ll just end up being pulled in multiple directions and the end of the week could have you feeling exhausted. Balance your needs with the needs of others.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) You may not have known you hurt someone’s feelings but being open to that fact creates an opportunity for healing the past or making amends. Get physically active now by walking, dancing, or doing something besides sitting on the sidelines.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) A previous misunderstanding is resolved. Use this opportunity to see where the disconnect happened and hopefully, not repeat it. Celebrate coming back together with old friends, enjoy the comfort and familiarity- this is a safe space to share your new ideas.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) This is a busy week for Caps so even though Mercury is moving forward again, be cautious when responding to texts and emails asking for more information. A mistake could have you explaining yourself to a lot of people.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Reaching across the miles, possibly to consider a move, keeps you occupied this week. Pace yourself and breathe deep, and often. Emotions are high and your physical body will react to stress very quickly so head off any potential problems and take time in your day to gather yourself and recenter.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) You’re generally a good listener but this week you’ll want to really read between the lines of what someone is telling you. Look for facial/body cues as well- sometimes they tell a different story than the words being said. Kids may inadvertently offer up powerful insights that help you make an important decision.
