Oh, Mercury retrograde.

You are here, AGAIN. You have arrived on our collective doorsteps in all your messy glory. You are our dreaded but regular house-guest. You stagger in the door, kick over our furniture, leave crumbs all over the couch and hog the bathroom. Then, as quickly as you appeared, you disappear again, leaving us slightly stunned but much better equipped to continue with our own lives!

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here we go. The planets are swinging around at all times, and their movements affect us all in different ways. All planets go retrograde, but Mercury’s journey seems to impact people much more than any other. (Even people who “don’t believe in astrology” often “believe” in the crazy aftershocks of Mercury retrograde!)

Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Aries – Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi


Mercury is preparing to station retrograde (appear to move backward in the sky) on Thursday, February 6 and will remain in retrograde until February 27th.  Mercury retrograde is now so infamous that it is part of mainstream awareness.  This is because the effects are clearly visible.  Challenges with communications all of kinds, electronics, travel, devices, all things related to computers, and transportation ensue with Mercury retrograde.  It’s a period of time where things just don’t go as planned.  Knowledge of what is happening helps us use it to optimum advantage instead of working against it.

Hello friends and welcome to February! My feeling about this month is that it will have a slower pace than January and be more about rest and integration (we could use it!) Mercury is retrograde the *entire month* as well. Before you have a mini freak-out about that, I don't see it as a negative thing. For me personally I am preparing for a big house move in March and am using February to go through things, recycle and restructure, which is a perfect Mercury Retrograde thing to do. You don't have to be physically moving to do that either. Just be mindful that when your internet connection is moving at a snail's pace or your phone is dropping off calls, that could be the culprit. Mercury Rx is always a great exercise in patience and frankly my Aries moon doesn't like it, although I know it's good for me.  The cosmic sky isn't exactly quiet this month astrologically, but I feel the overarching vibe IS. The planetary movements this month also support introspection, cleansing and clearing.

Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Aries – Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi


Yesterday the Sun produced seven M-class solar flares and three coronal mass ejections (CMEs).  The Sun is a divine being.  When it releases a flare, it is a conscious action.  Flares enhance the intensity or strength of whatever frequency of energy is in place for the day.  Yesterday’s energy provided a unique opportunity for clarity and strength to face obstacles.  Yesterday’s energy was empowering, to say the least.


But, during the duration and in the immediate aftermath of seven M-class flares and three CMEs, the side-effects can be harsh.   Solar activity perturbs energetic “fields” of all kinds.  Aches can occur, particularly headaches, earaches, stomachaches, and backaches.  Issues with interpersonal communications can also arise.  We need to take special care of ourselves and take care in how we related with others.

The New Moon on January 30 began the Year of the Horse, a year destined to get things moving again after the more grueling Year of the Snake.  The past year had many of us tangled in convolution and conundrum. (See January's special Cosmic Weather Report.) Now, that we're off and running it's a very good thing to get clear on where you want to go, otherwise the sheer momentum of the coming year may have you running in circles.

New Moon Phase – Moon: Pisces – Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi


Saturday’s energy involves gauging, judging, or measuring situations.  There is an undercurrent of anticipation that can manifest as anxiety and fear, particularly fears about the future.  The Moon will conjunct Chiron Saturday, bringing tendencies to self-sabotage (harshly gauge and judge ourselves) and become lost in wounding or victimization.  So it is better to stay on the high step, seeing far ahead, knowing that we are in place and supported.  It may not look like it, but spring is on its way in the northern hemisphere, bringing much to celebrate.  Start looking for signs.  (There is joy simply in the additional sunlight each day; we perk up as Sabaoth, the Sun, calls us.)

New Moon Phase – Moon: Aquarius – Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi


Mighty Venus stations direct today, ending her detour to discern the truth about relationships and reform our feelings about what is truly valuable.  Longtime readers know that the day a planet crocusstations retro-grade or direct can pose challenges, as people are responding to the slingshot-effect of the energetic shift.  As a planet stations retrograde it pulls back farther and farther until it is released to move forward again.  Situations, circumstances, events, and feelings can be dramatic.  Things can quickly come to a head or to an end, but the refreshment that results can be sublime.
