Tracys Astro Salon » Mercury Retrograde

April 27th, 2016 @ 4:48 am by Tracys Astro Salon

Mercury Retrograde
Oh,  why not?    Saturn is retrograde, Jupiter is retrograde, Mars is retrograde, Pluto is retrograde why not the hell add Mercury retrograde?   Yep, that is what we are doing.
Let’s go over those dates.
April 14th Mercury in shadow (14 Taurus)
April 28, Mercury turns retrograde (23 Taurus)
May 22 Mercury turns direct (14 Taurus)
June 7thMercury leaves shadow (23 Taurus)
You know the basics about a Mercury retrograde.  Watch your communication.  Think twice before you send that email.   And when I say that email, I mean THAT email.    Research like a crazy person anything that needs more information during a Mercury retrograde.  But try to avoid large purchases or signing important contracts.  And yes, sometimes you do have to do both during a retrograde. But try your best to avoid it.
With Mercury retrograde …

handsTuesday morning the Sagittarius Moon squares Chiron and quincunxes Mercury as it applies into trine with Venus in Aries. Mercury in Taurus closely sextiles Chiron in Pisces with Venus as Mercury’s sign ruler. Venus has recently passed over Uranus. So BOOM! Feeling inflated and fiery, feeling sweet and sharp… sometimes we communicate something that has a deeper root than we’d meant. Drop something hot that felt right at the moment and really needed to come out. (…)

Astrological Insight : Looking at the chart wheel for this Monday morning – my eye immediately fell on the besieged Moon. A planet is besieged when it finds itself sandwiched between the two so called malefics, Mars and Saturn. My once teacher John Frawley said it was like being stuck between a rock and a hard place: not a comfortable place to be. Of old, the Moon in mundane astrology has related to the people. My son’s announcement (he has the ascendant in 8 Sag) that he was driving to a theme park on the border with Germany with an 18 year old friend who just passed his driving license – left me with an uncomfortable feeling. It’s a grim weather day here in Holland. The words ‘drive carefully’ resonated with me as they left. The Moon translates Mars to

mantis tillerMy husband has been frustrated, lately. I’m feel more irked. Over the weekend, we realized, we’d best buy a new weedeater. We have a great weedeater, however it’s impossible to get parts. It took us several weeks to figure this out.  Bye bye, Hitachi!(…)

ElsaElsa » Holy Progressed Stellium In Libra!

April 25th, 2016 @ 3:14 pm by ElsaElsa

holy stellium in LibraI wrote about progressed charts in my newsletter today.  A gal bought a progressed chart report.

I found myself staring at this huge stellium in Libra, pictured.  Can you believe that? In the first house, no less!

This just goes to show you what can happen when you’re not paying attention.  Can you imagine how this might play out in a person’s like. They just slowly become…LEEEEEEEEEbra.

stallion landscapeMonday morning the Sagittarius Moon moves into conjunction with Saturn and a t-square with Neptune and Sadge ruler Jupiter. The effect is twofold: stop and go, and confusion over which one we’re doing now. While this can be irritating, it also doesn’t last. The remedy is to keep your mood nimble and forward leaning while you look for your next move. It’s a great way to clear all those little details that fall through the cracks, the jumble. (…)

Post Full Moon we are still deep diving. This a time of profound spiritual and emotional growth. Something is being changed or transformed.  Endings and new beginnings abound. Survival fears arise. Will I make it? Can I do it?  Was I just dreaming? Is this possible?

Our special destiny is calling (Uranus in Aries, Jupiter North Node). We know it, we feel it.

We sense that we may need to break away from the pack to manifest our dream (Eris Uranus Aries).  That’s a bit scary, but we persevere. We are impatient to get there, (Aries) yet we  find ourselves  resisting the work required (Saturn in Sagittarius), causing us to feel stymied, blocked.  Yet , despite our misgivings, we know deep down that unimaginable change is occurring/has occurred, though it may be still under the surface waiting to manifest. Shocks …

You may have to take a back seat to an older relative’s will this week. Family matters will be prominent and some of your plans may need to be rearranged to accommodate them. Just don’t allow the drama to get to your romantic relationship, you will need your partner to help you decompress after dealing with your people
You may feel freer than you have in a long time. Social and business constraints will loosen up, but it’s important to remember not to let this positive energy lead you down a negative path when it comes to spending. It’s okay to be generous with your time but keep your wallet in your back pocket for now. You may need to smooth over a rift with your sweetheart sometime this week; use your culinary skills to make things right

ElsaElsa » Crippled Again

April 23rd, 2016 @ 6:14 am by ElsaElsa

Saturn man painting by Buz TafoyaSaturn square Neptune. Saturn will hobble a person. Neptune will obscure the cause. I’m back to not being able to walk again. I’m so pissed.

I had this problem last year and figured it out. It was such a shock. I’d get out of the car, and quickly realize, if I didn’t grab onto the car, I’d fall, splat onto the pavement. It took me a couple months, but I resolved that problem completely.  (…)
