The Sun – Venus & Mars – Neptune Journeys, Mercury re-enters Libra & Second Chances

So focus on decision making wherever possible, especially as Mercury is now moving things in the right direction and will come out of shadow at the very beginning of next week, which translates into being back to full speed. As above, so below, look out for info coming to light, things that you hadn’t known up until that point and which will make a definite difference.

U-Turns & Turning Points, the Healing Journey & Aries Full Moon conjunct Chiron

This is a huge finale. Pluto has been retrograde since 29 April so this turning point is pretty hefty. It’s also Mercury’s last aspect in the end degrees of Virgo, and one that he’s already made twice, before changing sign again next week. Decisions made under such conditions are likely to be irrevocable, but that’s not always a bad thing. This can be about adaptability as well as slamming doors shut behind you.

The Queen, and the Mercury & Venus Journey

On 8 September transiting Saturn was at 20 Aquarius, coming back over the Queen’s Mars – Jupiter conjunction for the second time. So often it’s the middle of any three-legged transit that is the crucial one, especially when it’s underlined by a progression and a lunation/the progressed Moon). Traditional astrology teaches that the coming together of these three factors indicates the major and fated milestones in our individual journeys.

Mercury on the Move, Venus – Jupiter blessings and Mars’ New Journey (Horoscopes: Salman Rushdie, Anne Heche)

Jupiter is Venus’ first date on her new journey through Leo. The only thing to bear in mind is that Jupiter is currently retrograde so look out for the “re” factor – reworking, replanning, rethinking etc. This can show as changes of plan or going back to plan A or even an ex. This is classic astrology for second chances that are worth exploring.
