Mercury Retrograde; Dec.19, 2016 – Jan. 8, 2017

By Mark Lerner

The kick-off campaign to this morning’s Mercury station and shift into reverse occurs about 90-minutes earlier when Mars enters Pisces (1:24AM) until January 27. Then the winged Messenger of the Gods planet halts its forward progress at 16 degrees of Capricorn (2:56AM) in a three-weekly cycle that will conclude on January 8.

These two somewhat ornery sky movements, combined with the Moon in Virgo making its monthly opposition to Neptune in Pisces (3:24AM) as well as Mercury zapping Mars via a frictional, 45-degree tie (5:32AM), reinforces the cosmic signal to be cautious, careful, and conservative across the board. Being reckless and foolish, in all fields of endeavor, is asking for trouble. Since the Messenger of the Gods planet has no motion right now, its archetypes are intensified far and wide.

Therefore, focus considerable attention on communication, learning and primary education, words and language, transportation and travel plans, business and trade, messages and paperwork, health and medical concerns, the five senses, air and breathing, wind and temperature changes, as well as acts of apparent magic, sleight of hand, and theft. Don’t fall prey to marketing strategies and sales pitches that aim at hoodwinking you to sign an agreement that will end with regret.

Realize that over the next three weeks, it is sensible to tune into a lot of brilliant ideas, concepts, and realizations that will make your intellect and intuition potent instruments for your advance on the soul-spiritual gateway to the stars. Utilize the positive qualities of the Moon’s placement in Virgo to enhance organization and efficiency in everything you do. Helping you avoid making unnecessary mistakes are lunar trines to Mercury (2:00PM) and Pluto (4:42PM).

The Moon square to Saturn (11:21PM) and opposing Chiron (12:55AM tomorrow) are extra warnings from the universe to accept the status quo and steer clear of creating instant karma. ”
