... Mercury brings information,
turning the cogs in preparation for the Solar Eclipse ... 

This week, August 13th through August 19th, emphasizes the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon that continues to pull together the spark to create new beginnings with the Solar Eclipse/New Moon on August 21st. With the ripples that are moving the wave of change forward, Mercury comes in to emphasize this process by bringing in more information to spur events, circumstances and people into new avenues. On August 12th and 13th, Mercury has paused forward progress, as the Sun closes the gap between it and Mercury.

Mercury being so far ahead of the Sun begins to backtrack, bringing in events that have integral information to give us reasons to look to the new directions emerging on the horizon. These events serve to point us into different directions, to pick up our new purpose, passion and creative pursuits. Picking up the missing pieces we will integrate this information into our life as the shifts and changes occur.

On Tuesday, Venus creates an opposition to Pluto, that requires balance. Venus accentuates the well-being aspects of love and money. Pluto brings in the issues of use or misuse of power. This balance creates many shifts as the beginning to the Mercury Retrograde period. Information streams in that causes adjustments to the many factors and cornerstones of the changes impacted by this Mercury retrograde.

At 18 Cancer/18 Capricorn, this balance effects the changes that will be visible as Venus creates a square to Jupiter on Thursday. The cogs turn to align with Libra’s impact and how we treat others and in partnership, according to our power of influence. Our ability to create positive connections with people will begin to be visible as the cogs turn and reveal a new avenue. This new information becomes a turning point in the Mercury Retrograde as well. Friday morning displays Moon connecting with Venus to emphasize the positive feelings as the shifts and changes begin to occur.

Saturday, Moon shifts into Leo, which opens the portal of change. As the Moon moves through the constellation of Leo the powerful connection is made with the Sun on Monday, August 21st at 29 Leo. This Solar Eclipse/New Moon becomes a powerful force in bringing forward the new beginnings that are emphasized for this new nine-year cycle. Saturday, August 19th, see the first ray of light that will crescendo into the Solar Eclipse. Moon’s intuitive awareness sees this ray of light shine on the new beginnings that are in full view with the Solar Eclipse and have the information intact for this same 29 Leo emergence on September 5th, as Mercury turns direct.   

NOTE: Mercury doesn’t really go backwards, the thing to remember is that from our earthly perspective, events are happening so fast it appears that Mercury is retrograding. In reality, the earthly events are moving faster and Mercury representing our mind and mental perspective, has to run to keep up, yet is not able to run fast enough to catch up to all of the events that are happening so fast. With major key events occurring, such as the Solar Eclipse on August 21st, situations are pushing us to make right action choices. Each step of the way takes us into our new direction that will bring in new events not only on August 21st, but bring in new directions that can then move forward on September 5th. As Mercury is aligned again to travel in the same forward motion as the Earth, our new environment, circumstances and purpose reveal our journey, pointing us into our new direction.
