Mercury Retrogrades into Aquarius and Venus Enters Taurus

“Today human evolution is at a turning point where an old paradigm and a challenging new awareness are uneasily trying to coexist. We are wedded to an outmoded view of the Universe and yet civilization is pregnant with a new, exciting and optimistic understanding of life.” Lipton & Bhaerman

” ‘It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” Lewis Carroll

In the ancient writings about the legendary island, Atlantis there are descriptions about how this city- renowned for its innovation and scientific knowledge –  was designed. The Atlanteans were reputed to have very advanced knowledge of the power of thought and the use and direction of energy. One example of this was that large  chimes were strung above the city which,  when the winds came through, would cleanse and regenerate  the energy of the city.

Innovative and futuristic thinking is the realm of the sign Aquarius and Mercury will retrograde back into this sign this week bringing more clarity, direction and stability to the mental process. Venus will enter the sign of Taurus this week also. Venus in this sign is associated with the creation of stability and security. It is a sensual sign and enjoys comfort.  While transiting through the later degrees of this sign, Venus will make a favorable aspect to the Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter conjunction. This speaks of the birth of the new in the realm of the old structures that are facing significant challenges now.

Venus in Taurus is a lover of good food and good times and bodes well for gatherings with friends over the next month or so.

It’s a good week to get more grounded and to ascertain whether the power of your thought process can be used in a more positive and proactive way. With the retrograde Mercury it’s wise to retrace your steps and see if their are ways on your journey forward, you can better support your personal aspirations through innovative thinking. It’s also a good time to energetically support the work of the many people who are creating a more sustainable and healthy future for the planet.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets.”
