Weekly insights into the stars
Mercury getting back to business is a powerful omen for decision making of all kinds. The quote this week from Tony Robbins reminds us that this isn’t just about getting things done but also about making powerful life changes. Congruent, meaning in agreement and harmony with, is the heart of the quote.
Mercury (communication) Mars (anger/strife) is always a combative or painful combination. Tread carefully with sensitive issues. This is not a time for going on the attack but it may bring events of the “last chance” kind re getting something resolved, or events that reveal the true heart of the matter. The things that are difficult to say or hear could point us in the direction of the truth, especially with things that have already been swept under the rug.
Jupiter has a 12 year cycle and Pluto has a 248 year cycle – the slowest of all the planets – so they catch up with each other once every 13 years. This time around, because their long retrograde cycles also coincide, they link up three times rather than just once and this week is the middle one.
This is definitely a year of significant retrograde periods so here’s a summary of all the current planetary orbits in this respect.
This is a huge week, so the more you can root yourself in the ground of your own life, the more you can find that peaceful spot of the eye of the storm, the better you will fare.
