As Mercury begins the retrograde process, we begin to unwind much of the activity of the last 3 or 4 weeks. There is an intense search for truth informed by deep skepticism and suspicion. There is a focus on details under the Virgo Moon’s trine to Pluto and Saturn. There is little or no patience for obfuscation or deflection — the imperative is to get to the heart of the matter, letting the chips fall where they may. Nonetheless, our ability to pull the details together is challenged under the waning lunar cycle and we may easily ‘miss the forest for the trees’ until the Friday’s Libra New Moon begins to open doors to more effective, diplomatic, cooperation. The Moon is void-of-course this evening from 3:46 PM PDT until 10:53 PM PDT.
Today is the day to stick to the routine, make plans, and try not to give in to anyone’s demands throughout much of the day. You have set out on this path for a specific purpose. The waning crescent moon in Virgo gives you the advantage over the playing field. Focusing on work and your goals are what it’s all about. Making lists and checking them twice can help to emphasize these earthy vibes.
The Libra sun continues a stressful opposition to retrograde Mars in feisty Aries. Remember that everyone is a direct reflection of someone else. We all have different things to teach one another. Someone’s lesson for you might just be about following your own path. There is a need to go your own way and a need to try to bring your friends along with you. For now, this is not a group effort.
Instead, it’s a perfect day to plan your future. Paying careful attention to your spending habits will help propel you to the next level. Making sure you keep yourself on track is what helps you restore your personal energy and will keep you from feeling resentful of those who tried to exert their power over you in the past. This could be a childhood wound coming to the surface because Pluto is still digging up some worms in your proverbial garden. There is a strong spiritual aspect here that is making you a more solid presence in the game. This is a long-term transit, and right now you can really seize your own evolutionary path from a more constructive stance.
