We’re half way through Mercury Retrograde, our periodic reset and rewind. What are you having to do over? Rethink? Although Mercury Retrograde can come with a side of hijinks and breakdowns, it helps us make new choices after seeing the result of our previous ones.
While Mercury is the planet of communication, learning, and movement, it’s also the planet of choice. Mercury passed by Saturn this week, giving us a push to take a critical eye at our choices. Are they living up to Saturn’s demand for maturity and integrity? Saturn also, by its nature, wants definition. So we’re also redefining our choices as well as redefining what we want.
Note that Mercury will turn direct on April 15, so we’re still reworking through things for another week and a half. Try to hold off making and hard and fast decisions until then, which is the same day as a new moon, a time when we traditionally start fresh or start over. But with Saturn in Capricorn ruling this Mercury Retrograde, we’ve got some serious things to figure out.
In the meantime, the Sagittarius Moon has us dreaming of far away places, from foreign shores to places or ideas that take us out of our mundane lives. We’re feeling a need for adventure, but we can’t stray too far from our responsibilities.
