“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland
“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” Alice in Wonderland
It’s another very busy week in the starry heavens as Thursday Mars will enter Pisces, Friday Venus will station direct after a roughly 6 week retrograde period and Mercury with station retrograde. The Mercury retrograde period will last through Dec 7.
Mercury will station retrograde at 13 degrees of Sagittarius in a challenging alignment with Neptune. This calls for increased discernment with information. This Mercury/Neptune duo has been with us often at significant moments since late 2016 and is a heads up about the need to pay closer attention to information and communication which can be confusing and/or misleading.
Do be extra clear in communication as misunderstandings can more easily occur and the Trickster is about where technology is concerned. Do make sure all important files are backed up and don’t jump to assumptions when a text or email isn’t returned.Best to double check.
The Mercury retrograde period will end with a Mars /Neptune conjunction indicating the mists of confusion will continue to be with us.
One time when Neptune was prominent in the sky I heard a radio interview about the life and writings of Lewis Carroll. He had Neptune and Mercury together in Capricorn. Mercury /Neptune aspects lean towards poetry and fiction and provide a great time for creative work and spiritual growth.
At the time of planetary stations it is always wise to be aware of information which represents a culmination of information. This week and into early next week provides good timing for that. With the Mercury station at 13 degrees of Sag look for information about what you are learning and your ideas about broadening your opportunities for the future. With the Venus station look to matters of self love, relationship and creating abundance and pleasure in your life.
One of the Sabian symbols for this retrograde period is, “Children in Halloween costumes indulging in various pranks.”
