Pulling at your Heart and your Mind
Friday, November 16th, 2018.
Early this morning, Venus the planet of love and beauty turns direct in the sign of Libra. Making the planet of love and beauty one of two of the most influential planets in our sky today. Since early October our love, relationships, finances as well as our ability to turn inwards has been out of whack and under a microscope, as well as our ability to understand our most personal values which has also been under a microscope. Over the coming weeks as Venus stations direct you will be able to make the necessary changes to improve these areas of your life. Now, as we move forward you can breathe a sigh of relief. Being in its home sign of Libra expect your diplomacy in love and relationships to return as your seek out a balanced and harmonious atmosphere. Gradually over the next few weeks expect your relationships and finances to move forward more easily. Clarity and confidence will emerge again in our social and love life. As Venus returns from her journey in the deep shadows, you along with many others have been facing your shadows and fears around love, self – love, money and your own self-worth and values. I hope during Venus retrograde you had time to reflect and focus on yourself and your own need’s or perhaps you had a chance to heal and reflect on your part in any dramas of your love lives and financial situations. Consider what you have learned since early October and you should be able to understand the adjustments that my be needed.
All good news aside, unfortunately the universe likes to have that silver lining…Mercury stations retrograde at 13’29 Sagittarius. Bringing the planet of communication and thinking into focus..This is the cosmic joke for today, Mercury goes retrograde on the same day that Venus turns direct. Today marks the beginning of its retrograde cycle in Sagittarius before it returns to the sign of Scorpio on December 1st. Mercury retrograde will remain until December 6th. Mercury rules over our thought process, the mental realm and communication. Now as Mercury energy is turning backwards except to hit a few bumps along the road especially in regards to technology, thinking, travel and our communication with not only others but internally! Mercury retrograde is a time to rethink, review and revise the past. Mercury retrograde is not a time to begin new projects, or be tempted to start new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs if possible! This also includes avoiding signing new contracts or leases. Instead its a time of contemplation, review and its especially a great time to catch up on tasks and projects that have been left undone. Don’t be afraid of Mercury retrograde its a great time to tie up loose ends, for healing and finally putting to rest issues that keep arising. Get a notebook and a pen, every time you think of a new idea or if a new creative project comes to mind make a list so you can begin them once Mercury retrograde is over! Even better write a list of everything that you have begun over the past few months but have not completed start working on getting them accomplished.
Have a great Friday!
