This final retrograde phase of Mercury in 2013 occurs in the sign of Scorpio. Here Mercury engages with secrets and lies, investigations and exposés. It wants to dig beneath the surface and get to the root of an issue.
Saturn squares Uranus three times this year (February, June and December). This square is therefore a defining factor in the events of 2021, especially at a collective and societal level. Saturn is the planet of discipline, calendar time, karma and responsibility.
This new moon in Pisces is gentle as a feather and soft as a summer breeze. Like a flower, she opens the heart to suffering, applying nectar to heal division and unite us with those people we would otherwise avoid.
27th May sees Mars retrograde back into Scorpio where it remains until 2nd August, fortifying our determination to leave no stone unturned when it comes to self-knowledge and the on-going evolution of consciousness. This Mars is a force to be reckoned with.
