8 June 2015 – an action packed week, Mercury turns direct

The Astrology Blog – 8 June 2015

I take it all back about retrograde Mercury probably having done his worst as last week kicked off. That was definitely wishful thinking! Here it was one hassle and worry after another, which I won’t itemize, but the main things were linked to the classic characteristic of incorrect information. I’ll also be more aware in the future that Full Moons coinciding with a retrograde Mercury do indeed still bring things to light, but in the shape of disappointments, things that we’ve been trying to ignore, or things that we simply haven’t wanted to believe.

Also one of the main things on my watch list of “problems with transport or communication” is, as you know, anything related to phones. I went to make a phone call on Friday morning – to find that we’d been cut off. Yes, dear reader, we’d forgotten to pay the bill! The upshot of that was then having to drop everything else to dash into town – at least here in Greece they reconnect you instantly, you don’t have to wait days – but as you can imagine I wasn’t impressed with myself. Talk about should have known better!

I’m off to the UK again middle of next week and on Saturday I was on the phone to my lovely, helpful travel agent in the UK booking the return flight back to Greece. It was only after he’d taken all my card details, booked the flight – and then read the details back to me – that we realized that we’d misunderstood each other and that he’d booked the flight the wrong way around, from Greece to London! And guess what, a ticket for the right way around wasn’t available, please try nearer the time ….

Mercury is now “stationing” – getting ready to switch from retrograde to direct motion late on Thursday – so we’re reaching the end of the tunnel, but just to be on the safe side here’s the checklist to bear in mind –

• Try to operate by “re” words – review, revise, research, reappraise, rethink and so on
• Back up all your computer work
• Write things down – forgetfulness, being distracted, inattention etc can be a troublesome theme
• Getting back to ideas on the back burner
• Getting back in touch
• Rest and relaxation, give the brain some time off
• Keep options open
• Assume nothing, double check everything

10 September 2012 – This week’s Astrology

Hi everyone

We’re still building up for the next stage of the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square but it won’t be exact until next week. For now I would say that this is a week to find that work/life balance, and to dwell less on anything that’s out of your control. This afternoon’s Sun/Mercury conjunction in detail loving Virgo is ideal for sorting out your own priorities and getting the week off to a productive start. It’s also great for news, decisions or helpful info, especially those related to work or health.

The Venus/Uranus trine (harmonious) is exact early Thursday morning. A big injection of fun, romance and spontaneity ensures that life is not all work and no play. This combination usually brings a few surprises too!

The New Moon in Virgo is exact in the early hours of Sunday. New Moons are new brooms that sweep clean. Again, work and health issues top Virgo’s bill but all things prosper if you’re prepared to put in the effort or make serious commitments.

Here’s the link to the weekly column on Avon Connects:

With love from Greece


Monday 6 August

What’s the astrological picture of the moment?

Three major themes:

1. Tomorrow’s Full Moon in Aquarius (04.27 BST) is swiftly followed by the Sun sextile (harmonious) Jupiter (10.57 BST). This pattern is full of promise and unfolding events will be those that pave the way to lucky opportunities/liberation/education and the resolution of legal and justice concerns.

2. Mischievous Mercury is still, however, retrograde… and will turn direct next Wednesday 8 August (06.41 BST). Expect details to start slotting into place on that date, or 48 hours either side.

3. Mercury getting back on track coincides with the end of Venus’ unusually long journey through Gemini, which started at the beginning of April. As Gemini is one of Mercury’s own signs this rather underlines the theme of new cycles in the making, especially those characterized by key choices or decisions. Whatever has been complicated or unsure in your life in recent weeks – or months – or whatever has required the waiting game should now be reaching a finale.
