Mercury is coming out of retrograde, so things will be zooming along more smoothly for a few months. Hopefully there hasn’t been much breaking down for you, such as phones, vehicles, tv’s, computers and the like. When Mercury stands still, havoc can occur to machines and technology, as if something’s been thrown into the works causing delays, and the need for repairs. It is, however, a good time for planning, reorganizing and perhaps getting some extra sleep. Mercury retrogrades, as if slows down and holds still, three times in most years.
Mars is still in Leo – One can be either more open, creative and generous; or more bossy, domineering and stubborn. The prince might push toward behaving as a king but mars, more often than not, lacks the true confidence of leonine royalty (all sizzle without the steak). If one has the courage to let their heart lead the way, the support will more than likely be there. A light-hearted playfulness added to the mix, rather than taking oneself too seriously, will bring positive results.
The connections between the slow-moving, outer planets create energies that influence us for years at a time. The major themes at work behind the scenes in these times of change are all in these cycles.
