Mercury, the messenger symbolising communication and thought processes is retrograde until 18th October. This retrograde is giving us time to slow down, review, discuss, reconsider, and catch up on things for which we need more time. Mindfulness is the key word here, not to overthink, or move too fast and make quick or rash decisions… this is the gift of Mercury retrograde. It is an opportunity to take the time to understand the other side of the story, find more information so there is a clear understanding. Mercury is in the air sign of Libra, an opportunity to see another point of view, keep connections alive, assess, negotiate, and ask questions to improve communication. Libra loves harmony and balance, so co-operation and moving together is the desire to create a “win win “situation. If you tend to be impatient this could be challenging, so take the time to pace yourself, then make a decision and move on without haste.
There is an intensity to these weeks as Mercury is interacting with Chiron, Jupiter and Pluto, which are all retrograde. The ongoing square with Pluto triggers an intense emotional imprint around relationships, especially related to fear and abuse. A new narrative can be formed from the past patterns of being stuck in loops this lifetime or many previous lives. This is about flipping the script of trauma, painful or destructive patterns…. Pluto brings awareness of these and the ability to work through and reprogram relationships, whether it be friends, family or business. The power dynamic is shifting to change the narrative from previous feelings of powerlessness. You can be more objective, see another perspective, see a story you have told yourself and change this. Pluto rewrites and reframes…. transforms.
The Sun and Mars are travelling together in Libra: this masculine energy, gives strength and courage in your relationships. Look in the mirror and be honest as to what we project onto others and truly what are our own patterns… then there is the power to heal. There could be triggers from family, friends, colleagues, demonstrating what we have been taught, so observing this allows reflection and how we wish to connect with others in the future.
Mid October the Sun and Mars will trine Jupiter, all in air signs connecting new potentials, new directions, new possibilities and the growth within ourselves will be amplified. There are moments of insights and clarity, intuitive messages and guidance… “I see it now!”. Chiron (the wounded healer) opposite Mercury, may have triggered some insecurity, a personal sensitive point…a scar has been touched and needs to heal. You can step away, look at this scar differently, not go into the pain and manage it in a different and better way. Be objective, this is not my reality, simply understand and ask yourself, what did I learn from this experience and move forward with confidence.
