A quiet day, really, with a chatty Gemini Moon going void-of-course at 1:48PM ET…not to enter Cancer until 5:45AM ET. West Coasters, why don’t you take an extra day off? If you must show up at the office, be reminded that whatever fires scream for attention after 2PM ET are probably not the crises they seem to be. Keep your restless mind engaged with creative brainstorming and pleasant diversions. Roll with whatever twists may disrupt your normal routine. Plan an escape if you can, and note your dreams all week as we are under the influence of the Sun’s annual meet-up with rose-colored Neptune, which is exact on Thursday at 2:19AM ET.
If you’re going to ship anything of consequence this week, it would be Wednesday or Thursday. Friday is another long void day. And on Saturday, as you know, Mercury turns retrograde at 4:41AM ET on Saturday. Seriously, back up your computers and smart phones NOW. Mercury will be retrograde until St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. More on that later this week.
In other news, I received a lovely email from a reader, commenting on Monday’s retrograde of Saturn at 11 Scorpio. “A gathering of the elite” was one theme we are likely to see in the news for the next several weeks, and this astute reader suggested that the upcoming conclave of cardinals who will soon gather to elect a new Pope would fall into this category. Absolutely, and stay tuned for more on this developing story.
Meanwhile, have you noticed the increased number of stories about the aviation industry and outer space? I have ever since expansive Jupiter turned direct and made an easy connection with Uranus, which rules these things. American Airlines and US Air announced plans to become the biggest airline ever — a story the satirical paper The Onion captured perfectly. Then we had that meteor strike on Friday (a day for “pushing through boundaries” read that forecast). And now, news that may answer the question “has dark matter been discovered?” — and we’ll have more details in a couple of weeks, coinciding with potentially spectacular planetary patterns.
Oh — lest I forget — Mercury retrogrades are super-fabulous for REview, including REviewing your life with your astrologer. This is an excellent time to schedule an appointment for a personal consultation, especially if we have not spoken in more than a year. Really, astrologers should be treated like dentists and tax accountants, absolutely essential, but without all that anxiety. We are way more fun than most dentists, though I do adore mine. I do have a few consultation specials running through the end of the month. Book now, before I run off to Guatemala in March…
