Illuminating your Divine Journey through Numerology and Astrology

... Sun spotlights Mercury retrograde .... 

bringing forward information needed for commitment aligned with decisions

This week, December 10th through December 16th, begins with the alignment of Sun with Mercury retrograde on Tuesday. This is an important conjunction as Sun spotlights the issues that Mercury has brought forward during the journey through Sagittarius. Sun and Mercury connect at 21 Sagittarius, which highlights information that Mercury has gathered to present. Putting the spotlight onto the information on Tuesday, gives us a perspective of the important issues at this time. Typically, we make a decision and commitment to move our life in one direction or another with the blend of Sun and Mercury. However, with Mercury retrograde, the decision and commitment may be made, but there is a delay in following up with action until Mercury turns direct in motion,  slated for December 22nd.

On Friday Mercury retrograde connects with Venus, ruling love, money and well-being. The information that has been brought to light will impact the areas that Venus rules, and impact the decisions we are making at this time. Adjustments will be occurring as the information collected brings forward the issues that require decisions and commitment of actions as Mercury continues to retrograde. Typically, when Mercury goes behind the Sun, many situations become hidden (and feel uncertain), but information continues to be collected. Situations and events are happening behind the scenes that are not visible yet. During this time, we have to trust the intuitive connections we have that provide information and walk along the path we know is right, regardless of how situations may outwardly appear at this time.

From the time that Mercury goes behind the Sun (December 12th) to the time Mercury turns direct (December 22nd), we feel as though many mis-alignments are happening, similar to being blindfolded and playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. While Mercury is behind the Sun, our mental thoughts fly all over the place (usually out of fear and reaction to these fears) and situations feel very out of control. Cultivating a focused and disciplined mind becomes advantageous. Moving forward on our pathway with faith and trust becomes important, while being in a place of “non-reaction” to outer situations helps to maintain calm. Once Mercury turns direct, the alignment between the Earth’s orbit and Mercury connects again, situations can resume in an orderly fashion. We may feel like we are staggering out of a wind tunnel, but at least we are moving forward.

With the transition of Jupiter in Scorpio, many issues are coming into view that have a direct correlation to the Scorpio elements of motives, ethics, values and intentions. The theme of transparency becomes the focus from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018.

Jupiter in Scorpio emphasizes the use or mis-use of power, ethics and motives. Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto. Both of these planets combined with Jupiter in Scorpio set the pace and determine the events of focus in the outside world. To understand the deeper elements influencing this time, look at the two ruling planets of Scorpio; Pluto and Mars.

With Scorpio ruled by Pluto, the issues and power of influence through use or mis-use of the will power comes front and center. Scorpio is also ruled by Mars, as our outer actions have the earmark of expression through the drives of motives, ethics, will power and the drive for specific desires. Looking to both of these planets in the birth chart, provides an additional level of information about Pluto’s deeper connection with purpose and the outer expression through the placement of Mars.
