Mercury Stationing Retrograde 29 degrees Virgo
So this Mercury retrograde period reminds me a little of the movie Karate Kid. We have a teacher, in this case Jupiter, a student, Mercury, in the star studded cast and the supportive, bountiful connection between the two. Jupiter lends its " can do" energy when we really dig deep and learn techniques to calm and quieten the mind, a la Mercury in razor sharp, but highly technical Virgo.
Venus gracefully appears and whispers to the student..."What awakens your heart? How can I be of service? Still your mind, focus and tell me of your dreams." She allows you, after quiet reflection, to speak from the heart.
This next three weeks is a time of preparation for you to be the best version of yourself. The wax on/wax off period so to speak. Virgo energy loves to perfect its craft and thrives off the challenge to be better, more streamlined and functioning at its highest capacity. Think Mr. Miyagi.
People from your past, socially, business wise and romantically can materialise now. Try not to lock yourself into new situations but simply sit back and sharpen your powers of observation.
When Mercury stations direct on September 22, a gorgeous link to power planet Pluto enables you to use all the skills gathered during this time to channel Daniel San, adopt the famous crane stance on one leg and kick the shit out of any opposition in front of you. Whatever begun then has tremendous powers of endurance.

✨Full Moon in Aquarius 26 degrees🌙
When I was about 5, I partook in my very first dance recital. The other little girls and myself had trained for what seemed like an eternity, in reality probably only a few weeks.
The big day arrived. Everyone paced backstage and parents fussed and straightened our matching leotards. The music began and we were ushered onstage...
All the other girls launched effortlessly into the routine. But me? Blinded by the stage lights I completely froze. I couldn't remember one iota of the dance. Nada.
My little mind started to race, as well as my heart. Panic began to rise from my feet up. Holy guacamole...What to do???
And then something happened...
I closed my eyes and concentrated on the music. I let my body move the way it wanted to. I leapt, twirled and stomped my way through the recital. I have no idea what it looked like but it sure as hell felt great. I did my thing with pure joy.
Afterwards the other girls got mighty stroppy and looked at me like I had two heads. Whatevs. I'd had a ball. People always get jumpy when you deviate from the plan.
Full moons shine a spotlight into your life. This particular one, in Aquarius, THE sign of the individual, makes links to inspirational Uranus. It's just daring you to think outside the box, no matter how nervous that makes you. Doing things the tried and true way just won't cut it. You're meant to be kept on your toes now.
But wait, there's more. A rare Yod configuration, involving la Luna, brings us to a fork in the road. Do we follow choreography set by others because that is what is expected of us? Or do we choose the road less traveled and really connect with our own belief system, listening instead to our own version of the music? Sure, this could peeve some folks right off. But our inner values must match the outside at this time.
Everyone has a unique dance within them, something that is just aching to get out, whether that be with numbers, colours, language or being of service.
The key now, under the glorious beams of this potent moon, is to find yours and let it move you forward unapologetically.

🌙 New Moon in Leo 11 degrees ♌️
My cat thinks he's a lion. He stalks his prey, eyes fixated on the target, bum wiggling, pouncing when it least expects it. In this case, his "prey" is a tin foil ball or if he's really lucky, my feet going up the stairs in the middle of the night.
Even though he's domesticated, he is still hard wired to hunt. His wild calls to him. The boy can't help it.
Like wise, Lions are incredibly playful. Watching them wrestle, nip and roll, you could easily forget about the untamed powerhouse lurking beneath.
Leo is the sign of play and of the hunt. It is immeasurably creative, devoted and has an iron will. It doesn't care what you do, but you had better put your heart into it. All of it. And then some. It is also the sign of courage and royalty. They don't call people Lion Heart for nada. Leo abhors lukewarm, beige, anything.
This Leo New Moon you are being asked to listen to your own call of the wild.
What are you hard wired, nay, destined to do?
Where have you been accepting beige in your life?
What does your heart silently, yet fervently, beat for?
Embrace it. ❤️
With a juicy link to Saturn, your dreams could really go the distance.
Where is your wild? 🦁
