... Mercury and Venus connect to Jupiter expanding new options  ...

This week, August 21st through August 27th,  begins with Mercury connecting to Jupiter at 26 Virgo, which brings information to Jupiter to expand into new directions. Mercury has been moving quickly through the sign of Virgo, reaching more than 26 degrees ahead of the Sun. Usually Mercury only reaches 18 degrees ahead of the Sun before turning retrograde.  But during this month Mercury has created far-reaching degrees that has information zooming ahead. Information is streaming into the current situations that open doors that will set a very different pace as we move into this week. As Mercury connects with Jupiter on Monday, Sun also shifts into Virgo joining Mercury to begin spotlighting the information that has been unfolding new options.

Mid-week Mars in Sagittarius catches up with Saturn in Sagittarius, setting new goals and opening new directions with tasks and responsibilities being handed to us. Mars is returning to the 9 degree mark that Mars reached before turning retrograde on April 18th, when Mars began the backtracking process that revised our efforts, energy and pathway. As Mars connects with Saturn, the tasks and responsibilities are handed to us to align with the goals and directions that require disciplined actions for our pursuits.

Saturday afternoon, Venus connects with Jupiter to bring in rewards and positive solutions that will be implemented that are aligned with the options that will expand as our new pathway begins to open. Venus relates to love and money as well as ease of well-being. Jupiter in Virgo has been expanding the choices for right-action and Venus begins to bring in the well-being elements that pave the way for our new journey.

Ultimately Mercury and Venus hand off to Jupiter the elements to expand as the options of our new pathway open with the earned elements through right-action choices. Mercury and Venus connect on the 28th, after both joining Jupiter’s journey. With Mercury and Venus taking turns connecting to Jupiter, and finally with each other on the 28th, options peel back the passageway that becomes available with Mercury retrograde beginning the course correction at the same time that the Solar Eclipse/New Moon on September 1st opens the curtains to a new journey.

This week, April 26th through May 2nd, begins with Moon connecting to Jupiter in Leo, expanding the bold, dynamic events that are emerging to move you forward.  The promise thacomes with Jupiter’s connection with Leo provides the expansion of the creative energy and the doors that open because of thebold actions that are taken when it is easier to just not participate.  Leo provides the leadershipvV emphasis that comes with the ability to take action and move in a particular direction without outer guidance.  

On Thursday Mercury shifts into Gemini, which means that Mercury is more than 20 degrees ahead ofhe Sun and has moved into a different sign than the Sun, which creates the feeling that situations are disjointed.  Mercury flying into Gemini brings in more communication, information and spontaneous events.  The situations thatbegin to occur feel that the logic and methodology are missing and decisions have become a bit more chaotic.  The Sun doesn’t move into Gemini to join Mercury until May 21st.  This becomes increasingly challenging because airy Gemini creates many thoughts and ideas that begin to fly around, yet lack a solid place to land.  

Preparing to review ideas that seem to fly through situations sets the stage for the Mercury retrograde that is coming up on May 18th as Mercury reaches 13 Gemini.  Turning retrograde to allow the sun to catch up is welcomed as Sun once in Gemini, joining Mercury, can begin to shine the light onto important decisions to create a new pathway forward.  As we begin to feel disjointed with Mercury shifting into Gemini at the end of April, we are also getting ready to shift into the month of May on Friday.  May is universally a FOUR month, which requires additional effort to maintain the pace that is activated by Mercury in Gemini.  

Mercury will continue to fly around, tossing ideas and concepts into the already chaotic airwaves.  By maintaining the ability to act and not react, there will be more ease about the situations that seem to become the wind that blows one way and then another.  Flexibility is key as is knowing many decisions made will be changed or revised later down the road.
