Most of us, in one department of our lives or another, could stand to get a break or maybe a second chance. Although this Monday is like a lot of Mondays in that it is a chance to once again stop and ask yourself “why am I working at this damn job,” there’s also something special about it. Monday brings us a New Moon at 9 degrees Gemini. Any New Moon represents a chance to reboot or redirect some part of your life and where it is headed in the next month. In this case, since Gemini is involved, I recommend you dedicate yourself to intellectual pursuits or communications or something that will make the information flow more freely in your life. And yes, I know Mercury is still retrograde… but we’ll get to that.
Speaking of retrogrades, there are two this week worth noting. One is ending and the other one is starting… and odds are very good that astrology fans will overreact to one or both of them. First of all on Friday, Mercury ends its retrograde at 26 degrees Taurus. This means that things like written communications and short trips and agreements are likely to turn out better than they have in the last few weeks. Secondly, it means that the inevitable screw-ups and getting lost in traffic and such will now be your fault and not Mercury’s fault. Sorry about that.
On Saturday, the much longer retrograde begins — Saturn turns retrograde at 25 degrees Aquarius. Between now and October, Saturn will float backwards all the way back to 18 degrees Aquarius. How this will affect you personally is of course an individual matter, but if you are familiar with your transits and have already seen the effects that Saturn has had on you, you know that it is time to brace yourself for another wave of the same nonsense. Likewise, if Saturn in those degrees of Aquarius has been of benefit to you, you can expect that trend to continue.
I would like to caution you that, in general, people seem to overreact to Saturn activity, even if in fact it’s doing them some good.
For example, I know of one astrologer on YouTube who on a regular basis puts out videos with opening credits that say things about “letting go of fear” who nonetheless has a video out about how there is a big war of “light versus darkness” starting this week. Fortunately for you: for a price, you can sign up for his big class on manifesting whatever you want and building the bold Love and Light life that you know you really want!
Me, on the other hand? I’m here to tell you that things are going to be okay — and I’m telling you this for free. You’re welcome!
