Mercury turns retrograde today and will continue to move in this apparent backward motion until the 31st, dear Libra. This transit affects your sector of friends and contributions, and later (from the 19th), your sector of career and reputation.
Friendships may involve some backtracking or slow-downs during this time. You’d be wise to be a little more alert to possible misunderstandings than usual when it comes to dealings with friends and groups or associates.
Some of you could meet an old friend during this cycle. Legal, educational, or travel matters can be up in the air–you may be waiting for information, for example. Some of the seeds you recently planted regarding long-term goals are likely to need review or revision.
Fortunately, this is an excellent period for looking back and seeing things in a new way–things you may have missed in your haste in recent weeks.
Today is potentially a little disorienting at times, but with your ruler, Venus, heading into a pleasant aspect with progressive Uranus, you’re looking forward and open to new ways of enjoying yourself.
A conversation replays in your mind as if on a film reel. You pore over each word and wonder whether you said the right thing as you create multiple variations in your head. Perhaps you can’t help but wish you could turn back the clock.
Thankfully, clever Mercury offers you a chance to rewrite history, with its retrograde maneuver through your 11th House of Friends and Associates. Revisit recent exchanges with people in your cohort and sort out your feelings together.
Today marks the start of a timely crossover between planets across the communication, friendship and relationship building fronts.
For just as both planets in your communication sector are nearing the end of their retrograde phase, Mercury turns retrograde in your friendship sector today, ahead of Chiron’s retrograde turn in your relationship sector tomorrow.
This is already a union of support for communication, friendship and relationship building, but over the next 24 hours the doors will open to the past and second chances across all three fronts.
Today’s Quote: “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
