“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” Chinese proverb
The upcoming Mercury retrograde period runs from October 4 – October 25.
It is wise to make any needed repairs and back up any info now in preparation for the retrograde period.
There will be two eclipses during this time – a Lunar eclipse at 15 Aries on
October 8 and a Solar Eclipse at 0 Scorpio on October 23. The effect of eclipses can be felt in advance as well as after the actual event. Check your chart to see where these two eclipses are falling – it is here that change and evolution is underway in your life.
Mercury will station retrograde at 2 degrees of Scorpio and one of the Sabian symbols associated with that placement is, “A youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual gains a sense of the great ‘other world.'”
