This weekend the heavens are awash with energy, potential and possibility. To be honest, in its entirety it may all be a bit too much for us so we need to pick and choose wisely how we use these energies now.
Watch out for hyper-sensitivity which could result in over-reactions and misunderstandings today. It doesn’t have to, of course. It could lead to greater insight and deeper understanding of ourselves and other people.
Whilst Venus spends the vast majority of this retrograde period in Leo, she actually shifts direction in Virgo. In this detail lies hidden the key to her entire retrograde journey: it’s all about the nuances, not the bigger picture.
Over the next three days the Grand Trine in Water, building since the end of May, reaches exactitude. In doing so it brings to us a deeper experience of the force of healing at the heart of the universe.
Today Chiron in Pisces, Mars in Gemini and the North Node in Scorpio join forces until 25th. Chiron leads the way in this one, which is particularly significant as it has only just turned retrograde (see yesterday’s post for info about that).

Mercury is retrograde between 9th April and 3rd May 2017 (GMT). Beginning in grounded and consistent Taurus and retreating into impulsive and instinctual Aries on 20th April, it highlights where we set anchor and strive to remain when in fact we should move on through.
We are now in the direct approach to some hugely significant cosmic configurations which occur on 26th August (GMT). I’ll be posting more about them later today and, of course, on Monday, but right now we need to begin our preparations because they are BIG and I’m excited!
Mercury stations retrograde at 5:15 p.m. UT on 28th April in the 24th degree of Taurus. Forming an alignment with Uranus, Eris, Chiron and the Moon, this passage of Mercury promises to expose truths, reveal missing puzzle pieces and offer what we need to rebalance mind and spirit.
As we edge ever closer to the powerful cosmic alignments of 26th August, the heavens encourage us to prepare by exploring evermore deeply the existence of opposites within our psyche. To embrace those bits of ourselves which seem opposed whilst also occupying the same space.
