This Week’s Astrology

“You can’t embrace the new paradigm until you let go of the old.”Marilyn Ferguson
There is a great deal of planetary activity this week – as the Moon transits through the sign of Libra setting off the Uranus/Pluto square and we head towards Thursday when Mercury stations retrograde in alignment with the Uranus/Pluto square and Saturn enters Sagittarius.
This Mercury retrograde period (through the 10th of October) is a good time to review any changes in your life that you are trying to make that require transformation on a deeper level – perhaps involving the ways that you customarily think or feel. It is a good time to look at how you use your mental powers – are you steady and strong or do you lose focus by becoming overwhelmed or discouraged? And if so what improvements do you need to make you need to make to support yourself through those times and create more equilibrium?
Mercury will station at 15 degrees of Libra- also making it a good time to review partnership issues and how to improve collaboration with others.
Inspiration and guidance are available this week if you can stay out of the fray. It is a week when events can move quickly and there can be surprises and unexpected occurrences. Best to not jump to conclusions.
It bodes well to provide extra down time for meditation and to integrate information.
