Dear Readers,
As we approach the Fall Season we are reminder again, that change is forever constant. Just as nature sheds its older roots, so do we as humans.
Mercury Retrograde occurs three to four times per year, when the planet Mercury, the planet of chat slows down, and appears to stop and move backward (retrograde).

Presently, Mercury the planet of communication is in retrograde,moving direct Sept 5, 2017.


Also, Venus, the planet of love now in Leo accentuates relationships, both work and personal. A good time to settle in with a new or existing partner, or do something fun, creative and totally romantic.. A strong, positive aspect for luck through speculation, or through investments. However wait until after Mercury has moved direct September 5. Those born under Leo can feel this affect. Those born under Sagittarius, Gemini, Aquarius are also affected. With other, your time of birth will determine its importance as to how it falls into your zodiac chart.

In a Full Moon, the Moon is opposite the Sun in the sky from our vantage point, requiring us to bring into balance the polarity of two opposing astrological signs. Here we have the Sun, which just moved into Virgo from Leo, and the Moon which has just moved into sensitive Pisces. There is a solar shift of energy from the Sun in Leo – bright and sunny with an accent on self-expression – into Virgo, bringing our attention to the mundane details of life and the need to create order. The lunar shift moves from Aquarius – innovative, but also rational and scientific – to the dreamy flow of the inner world that Pisces brings us.

Pisces, as Virgo’s opposite, lives in the realm of Spirit and ideals rather than the mundane. Where Virgo is concerned with matters of the body, Pisces opens the door to the worlds that lie within the soul and psyche. Where Virgo is practical and teaches us to create order, Pisces longs to transcend everyday reality and ascend into more soulful experiences. Neither is better than the other – with the opposition we must learn to create balance and integration. As work from the inside in dealing with these two polarities, it could create a tug-pull affect. It’s all about keeping still with our emotions, nostalgia and working from the inside out. For those born under Gemini, Pisces, Sagittarius and Virgo, you are most affected. However where it transits in your zodiac chart will be determined by your time of birth.
