Saturn, Neptune and Mercury Retrograde

“The idea is not to be superficially adjusted, but to be profoundly connected.” Thomas Moore

We are in a time between eclipses when time can seem distorted. The astrologer and writer Eric Francis noted that there can be an inter-dimensional quality to this time frame – through September 16. With the Saturn/Neptune influence in full swing and Mercury retrograde it can feel a bit confusing.

However with the Neptune/Saturn square’s influence ¬†information can filter down from higher, more inspired levels. It bodes well to heed messages from dreams and to provide more down time for meditation and contemplation. Consider it a liminal – a time-in-between – that bodes well for reflection and reconsideration.

It is also a good time to hold to the middle – the path of moderation. We are living in a time of transition and transformation. Jupiter will be entering Libra on the 9th. The author Lynn Bell has noted that this transit (approximately a year in length) can be like the swing of a pendulum from one direction to another. It is a time when areas of life that have felt blocked or stuck can suddenly be freed up and move in a desired direction. Best to keep moderation in mind as well as incremental planning as Jupiter can be associated with excess.

One of the Sabian symbols associated with the Saturn/Neptune square is,”A theatrical representation of a golden- haired goddess of opportunity.”
