This week there are 2 important astrological events:-
Mercury goes retrograde in Libra and Saturn changes sign into Sagittarius.
We are now between eclipses so there is a strong need to clear patterns from the past in order to embrace the new.
Mercury goes retrograde 3 times a year, so this isn’t rare. It is now in the middle of Libra- an air sign where Mercury is happy. It will spend 66 days in Libra, instead of the usual 21 days.
Mercury moved into Libra on August 28th and entered Libra as the Scout. It’s ahead of the Sun as a Morning Star. This day also began Mercury’s ‘shadow period’ at 0 degrees Libra.
September 17th Retrograde at 15 degrees Libra so Mercury is now moving backward the Sun.
September 30th Joins the Sun at 7 degrees Libra. A day for introspection. Mercury now becomes an Evening Star setting after the Sun–the Psychopomp and Guide until November 17th when it rejoins the Sun.
October 9th Mercury moves direct at 0 degrees Libra.
November 2nd Mercury moves into Scorpio.
You may already have received messages from Mercury. Divination is one tool that helps bypass the conscious mind. I love tarot and I also use ‘process’ cards by Chuck Spezzano to give insights into my higher mind.
Libra is the sign ruled by Venus, the Goddess and planet of relationships.
Balance is being asked of us-diplomacy being the highest attribute of Libra. The negative is being a people pleaser.
Many astrologers offer dire warnings concerning the Mercury retrograde period. Some add in the shadow stage as well. This astrologer doesn’t buy into such negative thinking.
I believe in the power of our mind to transform our world. Mercury retrograde periods give us time to absorb and assimilate all the information we’ve been receiving.
Mantras and The Power of Intention
I have compiled an Online MasterClass on Mercury Retrograde in Libra which I invite you to attend on the day Mercury goes retrograde- this Thursday 17th September at 8.00pm BST.
I am changing my usual format so this is only open to the first 25 people to book. You will be able to see my Presentation, see me via my webcam, speak and ask questions and I will be able to see you too!
I will offer you an individual mantra to support you and help you get the best out of this Mercury retrograde period.
Mantras are the power of the spoken word and when done with intention over time can have amazing results. A mantra can do no harm, and is a remedy that honours Saturn as it works through consistent repetition on a daily basis.
New habits can be formed in 22 days-the length of Mercury’s- retrograde.
All I need from you is your date, place and time of birth, plus a small fee of £10.
I will be using your Vedic chart and your birth time is essential. I will email your Vedic chart and personal Sanskrit mantra to you in advance – and I promise you – it will be really easy to pronounce!
The Webinar is FULL!
However if you want the recording, click here to pay:-
Please fill in the form after payment with your birth details. Please allow time for me to calculate and discern the best mantra for your personal birthchart. The info you’ll need for the webinar, along with a password, will be emailed to you.
Saturn in Sagittarius from 18th September – 21st December 2017
We had a taste of Saturn in Sagittarius from 23rd December 2014- 15th June 2015. It went retrograde at 5 degrees Sagittarius on 15th March. The move this week starts a 2 and a half year journey through Jupiter’s sign.
As a Scorpio, I have recently experienced Saturn’s transit through my sun sign.
One major lesson Saturn requires of us is to step up into leadership and ask “How can I be of service to others?”
As a result I became the President of my local Toastmasters Club, a voluntary position that I enjoyed. Now its the turn of Sagittarians to lead the way!
Saturn is the planet of committment. Any intention that you commit to on Thursday and Friday can have a long lasting effect. Saturn builds things that last.
One question I was asked on a workshop last week was “What do you wish for everyone in your world?
Write down as many words that come to your mind- they could be love, freedom, adventure, joy, grace, confidence, enlightenment, compassion, fun etc. They see which word makes your heart sing.
That’s your gift to the world. That’s your purpose.
