Dear Readers, the end of Summer, a turning point in our lives, change is in the air, hopefully for only the best!
As we approach the Fall Season we are once again reminded that change is forever constant. Just as nature sheds its older roots, so do we as humans. The purification process then begins. The orderly chaos of planetary changes, the retrogrades and the Sun in Virgo in opposition to transiting Neptune can be hectic. And to add to all this confusion, as we approach Mercury retrograde, we may begin to feel out of sorts as it creates mercurial distractions through speech, and everyday mental interaction. In addition, Uranus, the planet of unpredictability conjunct the North Node at odds with Saturn can create major upheavals with the stock market and/or, businesses, as well as personal relationships. If you are a Scorpio, Taurus, or Leo, expect the unexpected! Though at some point int he game, we’re all affected…

When Mercury is in retrograde, we are provided with time to catch up to ourselves, to reflect, to rethink and shed light on matters from the past that need our attention.
