“Without our dreams we would not be able to step outside ourselves and transcend our limitations.” Diane Mariechild
This Mercury retrograde period comes to an end January 8 at 4:43 AM when Mercury stations direct at 28 degrees of Sagittarius. The powers of rejuvenation are strong at this time if you make a conscious effort to harness them.
The Sun is conjunct Pluto at the time of the station. Pluto has been a strong theme during this retrograde period (since 12/19/16) as Mercury stationed retrograde conjunct Pluto. The next few days it bodes well to reaffirm any intentions for the New Year and to think about areas of your life that could improve if you instituted a more positive and expansive way of thinking about them – and set intentions to do that as well. One of the Sabian symbols for The Mercury station is,”A splendidly built bridge, a heritage of unknown ages, still spans the beautiful and wildly primal stream.”
The Moon at the time of the station is at 22 Taurus making a favorable aspect to Pluto and the Sun. This adds to the powers of resurgence and rejuvenation. One of the Sabian symbols for the Moon’s placement is.”A white dove flying straight and fearlessly over troubled waters.”
Venus is conjunct the South Node now – do watch for a tendency to drift back into unproductive habits. It does bodes well however for musing about long forgotten dreams and visions for your life that might be brought to life in a new form.
