The eclipse season is here, and Mercury is stationing retrograde on October 4, 2014, so it is critical to take your time with things and be extra patient, as there will be inevitable mishaps, miscommunication, misunderstandings, and computer problems — to name a few.
We are now in the shadow of Mercury Retrograde, which becomes retrograde on October 4, 2014 at 2 degrees of Scorpio and will be in retrograde through October 25, 2014. Mercury rules all forms communication and transportation, so be extra careful and aware in your dealings with others, as well as with planes, trains, and automobiles. People often experience car trouble or delays in travel, so try to be very flexible and patient in your travel plans this next few weeks.
Be very cautious in how you communicate with others. Mercury is very sensitive and a bit suspicious in the deeply emotional water sign of Scorpio, which can already read “something” in just about anything! Don’t give fodder to suspicious minds Mercury entered the keenly perceptive sign of Scorpio on September 28, 2014. It crossed the upcoming eclipse point yesterday and today at 0 degree of Scorpio, which is the exact degree of the upcoming Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23, 2014.
A lot of important news and issues will be uncovered this week in terms of what the upcoming eclipse in Scorpio will be embracing: what you need to let go, transform, and transcend. Mercury in Scorpio in retrograde can uncover important secrets and that which has remained hidden thus far. There could be some scandals in the news that come out in the next week or so.
This will be an extreme Mercury in Retrograde period because we are already in the eclipse season, which in itself brings disruption and the unexpected. The first eclipse is a Total Lunar Eclipse at 15 degrees of Aries occurring on October 8, 2014. This full moon eclipse on October 8th, 2014 will be conjunct Uranus, the planet of chaos and upheaval. Uranus rules the internet, technology, and electronics, so that in itself could bring a lot of issues with computers, electricity, and internet issues.
Full moon eclipses are highly emotional, and the influence of Uranus could bring sudden impulses to act out in anger or high stress; therefore, it is again important to be conscious of this energy, as difficult as it might be to rationalize when these situations arise. Whenever we are in eclipse season, there are extreme stories in the news, and this is a highly challenging and unstable time in the world, so expect big news stories.
There will be a lot of endings and breakups with celebrities in the news and in our lives in the next few weeks: coworkers leaving jobs, people moving, people breaking up from long term partnerships. Uranus, the maverick planet, is going to align with the south node. This alignment brings profound endings.
Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters one of its favorite placements: the lovely air sign of Libra on September 30, 2014. The fact that Venus is in the sign of partnerships during this eclipse time of October proves that relationships are further emphasized and under the radar. Venus remains in the sign of Libra from September 30, 2014 through October 23, 2014, when it enters Scorpio and joins the Solar Eclipse.
There could be new healing ways of relating and partnering with self and others with this positive Venus energy. Libra, this is your time to be extra stunning and dazzle all whom you meet. This is a great time for single Libras to get out and mingle, even though the dating game might be a bit more chaotic than normal.
