The New Moon and Mercury Retrograde Ends – This week’s Forecast

“Everything we do counts. There is no such thing as a small act of kindness or goodness.” Caroline Myss

Mercury is slowing down now to end the retrograde period on Wednesday near midnight EDT. Mercury stations are associated with a culmination of information, so it’s wise for a few days before or a few days after the station to take note of any information like this that surfaces. Mercury will station at 23 Cancer – opposing Pluto. Previously hidden information about the past may surface due to this influence.

Venus, the planet of love and personal values, is now in the fiery sign of Leo. Mars is also in the sign of Leo and this indicates that the powers of action (Mars) and the powers of attraction (Venus) are combining forces. This bodes well attracting what you want into your life. There are influences throughout the week that also support  imagination and intuition and manifesting what you want in your life. As they say,”The goddess is alive and magic is afoot.”

It is likely to be a  week of unexpected twists and turns of events as the Sun , Venus and the Moon on the New Moon, all square the planet of the unexpected, Uranus.  It bodes well to make an extra effort to stay grounded as this alignment  is also correlated with increased tension, nervousness and impulsive behavior.

Mars will make a challenging aspect to Neptune this week – indicating a good time for creative and spiritual work, but a time when it’s wise to have strong personal boundaries in place and to exercise extra discernment as this duo can lead to confusion and sometimes, disillusioning experiences.

The New Moon is Wednesday at 11:12 PM at 8 degrees of Leo. Venus, the planet of love and values is conjunct the New Moon and Mars.  Juno, the asteroid of marriage and commitment is nearby in the sign of Leo. This alignment ushers in a time that is  about relationships, romance and partnerships of all kinds. It’s a very good time to be working on issues of self esteem, self love and love for others.

One of the Sabian symbols for the New Moon is,”Glass blowers shape beautiful forms with their controlled breathing.”
