Another Mercury Retrograde is coming (retrograde station on December 19). Some of you are feeling it already now that we have entered the “shadow” of the retrograde.
Given that the Electoral College vote is scheduled for December 19th, the day of the Mercury Retrograde Station, will be interesting to see what surprises might be in store (or not) for us.
Here is a sample of our Weekly Forecasts:
WEEK 51 (W51) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 50 / W50)
Close to two months have passed since we were knocked down by computer and internet problems and just decided to take some time off. In the next few weeks we plan to resurrect this blog and its forecasts. This is a week that tends to especially affect Martians (athletes, police, and soldiers); they tend to benefit though not always.
Sunday: hard work or the easy way out. Each has the advantages, and you will be compensated accordingly. Monday is an odd day with an odd feeling; wrap up issues involving healthcare, education, or both and move forward. Tuesday has a Full Moon, written about much elsewhere. This one comes less than a week before Mercury Retrograde station, so expect more weirdness than most FMs. Tuesday and Wednesday are turning points for some people.
Wednesday the Moon is waning and emotions tend to trump logic, unfortunately. Wednesday is also important for Martians. Thursday a conflict emerges between dreams and reality, but the two can be made to work together to accomplish useful results. Friday brings us practical ideas involving education, healthcare, or both, but it is mostly a day off. Saturday is very busy but may not accomplish anything. However, if you can properly focus yourself (and those working with you), then you MIGHT can accomplish something useful.
Sun BiSeptiles the North Node, and we catch a glimpse of an important possibility if we are willing to work for it. Mars is unusually active today and dominates all outer planet activity. This is a special day for soldiers, police, “agents” and similar. However, it is not necessarily an easy day for them; even more than others they will have to work and overcome adversity to obtain the gifts that can be had.
Moon (Taurus) forms a yod with Jupiter on one leg and Saturn on the other. The Jupiter leg is obviously the one most people will tend to pick (which would you rather have (Jupiter) higher ed and luck or Saturn (hard work, difficulties, and tests)), but the Saturn leg is strengthened by the Sun (which joined Saturn yesterday). So, oddly, this might be a tough call since some people really will want to pick the “hard work” leg of the decision because of the lasting gifts it can bring.
Moon goes void about 10 PM CST, and that does not affect many in the Western Hemisphere. People in the EU / UK might want to take the evening off, however. Jim Shawvan sees this window as an “Opportunity Period,” so some of you may find special benefit, particularly if you are an earth sign (Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo).
Today is a bit of an odd “sideways” kind of day with Venus semisquare Chiron creating a sense of urgency in matters involving health, education, or both. Whatever it is you have to get done, wrap it up and move forward.
Mars quadrinoviles Vesta, and we see some fleeting but special insight regarding Martians (police, military, athletes) and traditions. Hygeia receives aspects from Pluto and Neptune, so BIG changes are coming regarding healthcare. We might hear about some of those today.
