Mercury stay in Sag will be a long one, entered on the 6th Nov – 11th Jan, 2018, while there will go Rx, 3rd Dec – 23rd.
Mercury’s in the opposite sign that it rules, Gemini is where Mercury works best, in Sag, the mind gets to stretch further out, has to think bigger, thoughts and logic will be touched with thoughts of hope and inspiration. It gets to weave a bigger picture to the story. Not so much looking at the details or facts, you will want to see the whole thing. So some of the facts may not stick as you are too busy, preaching about the bigger picture you want to paint. Which can be tricky at times, as you may not want to miss out on the details, as during the Rx period will be important. Best to remember this along the way.
Whats enjoyable with Mercury’s time in Sag, is fresh ideas, a new way to look at something, gaining higher knowledge or broadening your perspective on areas of life that have become too narrow. Great time to travel or go to far off places in your mind, broaden your mind with new stories, have something new to marvel at. Use this time to clear out the mind of old long-held beliefs, let something new filter in.
You communication style may turn more cheerful and optimistic, reality might just take a bit of a nose dive, as you believe that you can achieve the visionary view you have of life. You know Sag’s they are the optimistic bunch of the zodiac.
Mercury Rx will happen, you then have to go back over all of the this again and get a closer, slower, look at your faith, beliefs, hopes, attitudes and the new thoughts that have come. Pay attention to what is just too far out there, being in Sag, facts are flown out, as you are in the mix of wild enthusiasm, filled with inspiration and perhaps some exaggeration of what you thought is possible.
This may turn it around and the reality check pops in, and of course Mercury hits it up with Saturn just before Rx stationary and just after and that is a one big whoop of reality, right there, Boom!! you may have to come back to earth, instead of flying high in your mind. Use Saturn’s rules and limits to let you see how this will really work out for you, this is the framework.
Mercury conjunct Saturn – 26th Nov and then 9th Dec.
If you know your birth chart check it out to see where this is influencing your life and where the Rx will happen.
This weeks Tarot card is The High Priestess – 2 – major arcana!
High Priestess is strong, independent, reflective, receptive, confident but most of all follows her own inner knowing.
She is intuitive, listens to her inner most feelings as her guide.
If you are seeking answers or guidance, she is asking of you to come back to self even after you have seeked from outside of you. Always come back to your own voice that is whispering from within. Trust here.
Look deep inside of yourself this week. You will get the answers, and knowing by being patient, trusting, using your senses.
There is a lot brewing within her, waiting to come forth, she can be seeking knowledge, she may even have a secret or two hidden within, waiting.
Sometimes I see her as an incubation period, before things start to manifest.
Only you know your true self, and this is your only true guide.
Be still and listen and know!
She is your intuition.

Moon in Pisces meet up with Mars/Venus in Virgo, you might have stumbled a little in your thoughts in what you want or desire and will it come about. You start to doubt it. Sun quincunx Neptune to add another layer of this, you doubt your self, your identity, you may have felt sure of something, things blur. Mercury will also meet up with Neptune, which then adds another layer to this confusion, the doubts may deepen here, in your thoughts, your mind.
Do not rush to fix it(Virgo) in what you want(Venus) or take the action(Mars) to quickly or hastily. Watch your fears, emotions. With Neptune, it’s tricky, it’s about trust, that is a big one, I know!
Sun/Mercury quincunx Neptune is a vulnerable feeling, it makes you uncomfortable, adjustments need to be made, in your feeling about your identity, confidence, your thoughts, mind, communication.
For some it may not work out as planned for others, time will tell.
New Moon in Aries is on its way and this may be part of the plan.
Don’t let the doubt seep in too much.
Venus(what you want) and Mars(action, what you do to get it), both trine Pluto, deep soul urges, desires and goals may kick in, with some positive action, you can very well manifest with this one. Be sure to settle and ground your energy down. Face the future, know you have got the power.
This is building now. To this.
Mars and Venus completely connect up on the 6th, day of the full moon in Aries also. Your desires and actions may come together, this could be the point of the physical manifestation of what you want!
Pluto is involved always brings in the power of transformation, regeneration and healing. Being in a harmonious aspect it’s more creative, intense and passionate then on the disruptive side. Also it brings in a feeling of you have to go there! you might have been a little fearful before maybe it’s a taboo person or thing, as Pluto rules all of those things.
Get down and get dirty 😉 and have a really good time.

This weeks tarot card is the two of swords
Air – thinking, mind, logic, thought, communication, Ideas and inspiration, perception, crossroads, choices.
Moon in Libra. Our natural tendency to weigh up or analyse things.
A time of none action, finding your center. Finding peace between your head and your heart. Having to make a decision and weighing it all up. You can often feel like you are between “a rock and a hard place”, What to do? You feel pressured into making a choice.
Sometimes this is a card of not looking at your issues, having blindfolds on so you can not see, as you do not what to see what is going on around you, or to make the choice. Perhaps you do not have all of the information yet. Allow whatever information needs to come your way to help navigate you along.
But for this week I am going with,”stillness during changing states”, you are going from one state of being to another state and you need to find peace within yourself that things are changing and you are in the middle fold of this change, but what will be the end result of the or from the ideas and inspiration, choice you made, your view on things, you have to trust the inner process and journey you are now on.
There is an element of intuition at play, you have put all of your thoughts and ideas out there into the world, let the universe pick it up and work with you. But you must have faith and trust.
It’s a partnership with spirit.
Try and find some peace, let the worry go, stresses, with all of your decision for this week, let your heart settle, not much can be done at this time.

Here is an over view for the week ahead it may not be such an easy week. Even a little extreme in some ways! But with some info and foresight, skills and tools you can navigate your way through it with more ease and less stress.
Jun 25, Mars in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, exact today. Building over the last day or two. You push to go forward, with this energy you may take some action or steps to extreme, as you want to expand, let go a little, but you find you can go too far. Mars, maybe running your emotions for this to happen. You do want to grow as an individual. Try and expand with some awareness of who you really are, and what you are doing, as you can go too far, go out of balance in areas that may take you to places that will make you feel not so good afterwards. After this high energy day.
Jun 25-26, Mars in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, he settles down, not so assertive today, hey, you may feel worn out and do not what to do much, more of a day to dream, use your imagination, connect with more spiritual aspects of you. Easy flow day, which also may take you a little further out.
Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer square Jupiter in Libra, you can feel optimistic, positive about life, good day to look at long-term goals, maybe give it some thought, you may find you have a view to a bigger picture. It is a square, so look at all the details, you might have information overload, be flexible and don’t go too far, Jupiter energy has a tendency to do this. Mercury is in Cancer so watch your emotions don’t go to the extreme. Then of course this is happening too. Still a push happening here.
Jun 27, Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces, another part of you is dreamy, sensitive, would like to just go away and float in the universe, try to bring some spiritual, aspects to your day. Bring some magic into your world. Between the two aspects it may be a very good to let your intuition guide the way. Keep in mind that Mars is close by, fueling you long.
Jun 28, Mercury in Cancer conjunct Mars in Cancer, your thoughts into action. That may come out with your words, it’s really is best to think before hand. This one can make you feel irritable, edgy, try to be patient. Don’t rush into things to impulsively. Mentally you can feel alert, ready for an intelligent debate, but this could also be heated arguments. It may leave you feeling slightly frazzled around the edges. Venus and Saturn are aspecting as well, so relationship or dealing with other people may not be as easy for some.
June 28, Venus in Taurus quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, A quincunx is a challenging aspect, a need for an adjustment is being called for, something just doesn’t feel or look right. You can find yourself worrying about relationships, money, love or an issue can come up for you, remember Saturn brings things up to the surface, Saturn does bring in a limiting, sobering, serious vibe to the day.
Jun 29, Mercury in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, probing mind, good day to get to the bottom of a situation, but you can become rather obsessive about it. Delving deeply into a subject or really taking a closer look at other people or your own behavior is great, but don’t get too lost in it all, bring a sense of perspective to it. Other people may be a bit of a problem for you, anything Pluto is about power and control.
July 1, Chiron goes Rx in Pisces. More on Chiron another time. Will join Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Sagittarius. Chiron retrograde in Pisces July 1, 2017 through December 5, 2017. Chiron deals with your wounding, pain and hurts, it’s a sensitive spot.
Jul 2, Mercury in Cancer quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius, mentally you may feel blocked or limited, you may get stuck on an issue or idea, take another look, make a few adjustments, where Saturn is you can feel limited. You think you can’t, when maybe you can? or vice, versa.
Jul 2, Mars in Cancer opposition Pluto in Capricorn, this is not any easy aspect with these two power planet’s involved. Use it wisely and you can achieve many things, move through the barriers that have been in your way. You can have potential to move beyond a place you thought you would never get to. But watch out for the power trippers along the way, other people can be trouble and may try an assert their own power on you. Take it easy and always act with some caution and awareness, you are not in this alone, your actions do affect other people. Mars in Cancer, so people will be emotional or acting from an emotional place, stay steady, ground the emotions into something worthwhile and long-lasting.
Phew, perhaps not an easy week, but then way should this week be any different from any other week, aren’t they all just a wee bit rough of late.
New moon in Cancer 24th, @12:30:48 pm, (aest)
This New Moon in Cancer is conjunct Mercury, square to Chiron.
Sun and Moon meet up in Cancer, feelings, emotions, private self, personal.
What do you need? this new moon is asking you. Best place to start is by listening to how you are feeling, pay attention to what emotions are coming up for you during this time. This is the place you need to nurture, give whatever it is you need. And that could be many things, depending on you. What will give you that sense of well-being and fulfillment.
You may realize what is lacking or missing in your life, you might not know how to get it at this point of time, so use the New Moon intention to help you plant the seed for the future. What you are doing now is making sure that the ground (you) is fertile, solid, secure, is ready. This is why it’s important to tend to your emotional life.
This Cancer moon, the deepest emotional, private and personal part. A place where you like to feel safe, secure, comfort, to give yourself some self-care. You can feel very sensitive in Cancer. Connect to your emotions for the intention for the next month. What do I need and How do I want to feel?
Mercury is close by, your thoughts and perceptions, allow your thoughts to speak to you in feelings, listen and hear what they are saying to you, find words for what you are feeling. So you can get clarity in your emotional world.
You may get insight, messages and information with Mercury.
Chiron is squaring Sun and Moon, adding a little more feeling to it. This can bring up feelings of being alone, lonely, abandonment stuff, lost or lacking faith and trust in whatever it is you have been going through. However, listen to your pain, try to stay grounded and centred during this. Be the observer or witness to them.
It is time for some self-care, nurturing and watering the wounds, taking the time to check in with you. This is not an external moon, even though with Chiron is the mix you may well want to reach out to others to be seen, to get wrapped up is some emotional entanglement to help heal the wounds from the past. Best not to do that, now is the best time to take care of you in the best possible way you know how, so you can feel more safe, secure and comforted.
Go relax, rest and chill, if that is what you need or maybe you need to laugh, dance and sing. Just be sure whatever you are doing is the very best thing for YOU.
