Yes, today is the day that happens only three times a year – it’s the day that Mercury turns direct after being retrograde for three weeks. Mercury makes the turn at 22.49 GMT but you don’t have to wait until tonight! Untying knots starts right now, new information coming to light is likely to be of great significance and events over the weekend may already have made the point.
Mercury turns direct in Scorpio, a sign associated with use/abuse of power. As above so below. The BBC’s lead story this morning, “Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi is to meet senior judges to try to end a crisis sparked by issuing a decree giving him sweeping new powers.” It’s absolutely crucial for the people of Egypt that this dictatorship in the making is addressed and halted right now.
Scorpio also rules life/death/rebirth issues and the link between physical and mental health, and is therefore connected to healing/surgery, and emotional healing in terms of making the unconscious conscious. Money issues are in there too, but in a way that recognizes money as a resource rather than money for its own sake. Struggling to make ends meet is exhausting and debt is disempowering. If you need to turn a financial situation around the decisions and moves you make now will count for a lot.
All of the Scorpio themes are especially strong as Venus and Saturn unite in this sign in the early hours of tomorrow morning, and the two planets that rule this sign – Mars and Pluto – unite in Capricorn tomorrow evening. Throw in the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on Wednesday and it’s an intense first half of the week. The good news is that Venus then steadies the picture. In a nutshell? Whatever your own personal struggle may be there’s an intensifying going on first, a message being rammed home, but it’s the path to deep healing, and an awakening to the awesome power of deeply felt and considered decisions.
