Mercury retrograde, March 30 – April 23 2011

Mercury retrogradeMercury turns retrograde today, taking us into three weeks of reconsideration and re-evaluation with potential communication and equipment glitches.  Mercury is in Aries during this retrograde, and since Aries is the sign of action and initiation it’s not too happy when it has to look backwards and review rather than take direct action.

Retrograde periods serve a function that goes beyond creating problems in our lives: they are opportunities for do-overs.  If you didn’t get something right the first time, this is a chance to go back and do it over again.  It’s a time for reassessing our priorities, for reviewing the things we have done and the plans we have set in motion.

While it’s generally true that contracts signed and decisions made when Mercury is retrograde often require renegotiation and revision, we can’t always put our lives on hold for three weeks.  Sometimes we have to begin a job or sign an important contract when Mercury is retrograde, in which case it’s helpful to know that communication problems are likely and be prepared for that.  If you CAN avoid starting something new when Mercury is retrograde it makes life easier, but life isn’t always about things being easy.  Life urges us to grow and evolve, and along the way we will encounter bumps on the road.

Mercury retrograde periods are excellent for reassessing the past, for redoing your plans, for looking back at your goals to see where they can be realigned with your present reality and hopes for the future.  It’s a time to gather your resources so that you can emerge at the end of the retrograde with a new confidence and with improved resources.

Jupiter/Saturn and Mercury Retrogrades

Saturn opposite JupiterThis week the expansive urge of Jupiter bumps up against the contraction of Saturn for the third and final time in the current cycle.  This is the “Full Moon” phase of the cycle, the culmination of a pattern that began in 2000 with the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Taurus.  Mundane astrologers, observing the effect of astrological patterns on nations and politics, connect the Saturn/Jupiter opposition with a crisis point or climax in global political events.

It’s hard to tell right now which planetary cycle is inspiring the political events unfolding on the ground, and I tend to think that Uranus entering Aries, being a more powerful planet in its influence, is primarily in play with the revolutionary fervor that is spreading around the world, including in the UK where hundreds of protesters rioted in London last weekend, protesting against the concentration of wealth and the reduction of goods and services for the common man.  This is very Uranian and a harbinger of what is to come over the next few years as Uranus and Pluto align in square formation.

Jupiter/Saturn alignments are often significators of financial adjustments, but stock market indices are relatively stable at the moment.  I have found that the square aspect (90 degrees) is usually more problematic than the opposition.  Oppositions create a tension, but the tension can be balanced and does not always necessitate a crisis for resolution.

However, with Mercury turning retrograde on March 30th, we are in the shadow of the retrograde which could bring about a downturn in the market.  Uranus in Aries is quite volatile anyway, and it won’t take much inspiration to create havoc in financial markets and stocks.  The retrograde turn of Mercury generally […]

Sunday inspiration: You are already naked

Tomorrow I’ll analyze the riots over the weekend in London and how they tie in with the global unrest that is unfolding as Uranus moves closer to a square to Pluto, fulfilling all of the astrological praophecies.

But today, I’ve gone to an unconventional source for inspiration, Steve Jobs:

Sunday inspiration

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Steve Jobs, commencement address, Stanford University 2005.

Around the table with Dharmaruci

Having sat and chatted around the table with Dharmaruci last summer when I was in England, I know how interesting a conversation with him can be.  Dharmaruci runs an astrology blog called that is one of the more interesting ones out there.

Now you too can enjoy this fascinating discussion of astrology and magic.  Such as this exchange:

D – I think of astrology as a system of knowledge that respects and uses all our faculties. Science is very strong on rationality and sensation (air and earth) but not very respectful of intuition and feeling (fire and air). . . and so to me, astrology is a more complete system of knowledge than science. Jung saw astrology as the summation of ancient knowledge — as an umbrella, if you like, that can incorporate all other systems. A proper relationship between astrology and science would see science as a specialisation within this broader tradition. What we have instead is a Sorcerer’s Apprentice situation: We have many brilliant scientific inventions, but havoc is being wreaked within the psyche because the apprentice has taken over, pretending to knowledge outside of his areas of competence.
H – And yet many people would argue that the ‘truths’ of science can be tested and proved, while the ‘truths’ of astrology are more subjective. . . .
D – Astrology works, but it can’t be explained in scientific terms. Like science, it is empirical, it is based on observation, but its truths are not statistical. They don’t rely on laboratories and ‘double-blind’ tests. They are the truths of a novelist, or of a work of art. It would seem ridiculous to try to reduce the insights of a novelist to a lab situation…but that’s what the scientists want to […]

RIP Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor died yesterday after a long battle with congestive heart failure and a lifetime of health problems.  Although she had a long and successful film career her romantic life was plagued by scandal and divorce.  She was the best of friends to Michael Jackson and many in the gay community, and an earlier fighter in the battle against HIV.  She was a woman who was bigger than life in nearly every way.

Astrologically, Ms. Taylor ()  had the Sun in Pisces and opposed by Neptune, a Neptunian “double whammy” since Pisces is ruled by Neptune, resulting in a dual connection between the Sun (the Self) and the Pisces/Neptune principle of transcendence and creativity.  It’s no wonder Ms. Taylor loved artists and musicians, and no wonder that she was blessed with so much creativity herself.

Ms. Taylor’s Sun was flanked in a triple conjunction by Mars and Mercury, and while Mars conjunct the Sun can often bestow a strong energy force, in Pisces that energy is dissipated. Mars is also opposed by Neptune, which doubles this dissipation of the life force and normally requires a great deal of physical activity to keep the Mars energy flowing and to strengthen the will that Mars is so much a part of.   The Sun/Mercury conjunction gave her a brilliant intelligence that was such a gift in her acting skills, and the location of all three planets in the third house of communication and Neptune in the ninth house of the media and entertainment industry perfectly reflects her long career.

Neptune is associated with glamour and shapeshifting, and is often found in the charts of successful actors as a result since that shapeshifting ability makes it easy to slip […]
