There are lots of opportunities this week to be misunderstood. With Mercury retrograde today at tight aspects to Aquarius, Mars and Scorpio and a new moon coming on the weekend it might feel a little explosive. This year is all about feet to the fire. There is a lot to be done; after all, this is the year to bring fruition to the things you have been working towards over the last 2 to 3 years. This is the time to come home.
By coming home, I mean returning to the truth of yourself. You might have strayed for any number of reasons or you might have completely abandoned yourself. Regardless of what happened, sometimes coming home can take a circuitous route. It can even be fraught with peril. But anyone who does the work will return all the wiser for the journey.
In all your wisdom, keep in mind that you might not be the only one headed home. You might be surrounded by lots of folks headed home. That level of excitement, trepidation, and even fear, coupled with the astrological influences, might provoke some tempers or, at the least, impatience. Just because your neighbor loses his way, doesn’t mean you need to.
This week mind any moth to the flame tendencies: 1. Keep good perspective. 2. Stay mindfully focused on who you want to be when the going gets rough. 3. Remember what you love in life.

It is a good week to get a lot done. Chop wood, carry water. That is about all I have to say about it.
There is plenty of support in the sky for inspiration and stamina. And since we will all be feeling it, there is a good chance we can line up with each other and lend a hand. The image comes to mind of an old fashion fire fighting line. The barn catches and neighbors come together and form a line to ease the burden and increase the efficiency of getting buckets of water atop the fire.
So, there will be fires this week. And we still are in a Mercury retrograde (that has packed a punch, I might add), so there will be some disconnect in communication, especially via electronics. But don’t let any of that get in your way of getting the job done. Go ahead, reap what you have sown.

This week is a busy one! It might be like a three ring circus. The good thing about a three ring circus is that there is always something going on and that increases your chances of seeing something you like.
Tomorrow the Sun travels into Libra whose ruler Venus, is in Leo- this all trines Uranus in Aries! That is a lot of sun lovingly balanced and fired up for a big surprise that might just be liberating.
Consider the ring with all the clowns coming out of the little car. It is funny, but it is kind of scary too. So much of one thing can be a little deceptive. How do all those clowns fit in that little car anyway? Hmm, there might be something fishy going on.
As the week moves on, this theme may grow into the shadow aspects. Think of the magician sawing the beautiful woman in half. It is disturbing and yet you peak. Things aren’t always what they seem to be and without all the information it can be hard to decide what is right. Would telling the truth spoil the secret? Would you say it is fair to call the bearded lady a freak, if she simply suffers from a hormonal imbalance? Is it false advertisement? Who is manipulating who?
And to top it all of, in the center ring and for the grand finale, at nearly the strike of midnight we have Mars, Saturn, Neptune AND full Supermoon lunar eclipse in Aries. This week spills into next week with a spot light on what might be the harsh realities of the past.
There is a theme here this week and it provides you a good opportunity to get a lot swept out from under the rug. Let yourself take a bit of shelter in the audience. Watch how the tricks are done. Mind being too eager to get up in front of the crowd. And definitely don’t turn your back on the lions. See if you can do all that and still have fun at the circus!
You may have noticed that communication has been challenging lately. It might seem like we are speaking another language, that we reside in a country of misunderstanding. Un-returned phone calls, emails lost in cyberspace, and agreements coming undone are just a few examples of what many of us have been experiencing while Mercury has been retrograde. To make it even more interesting many of us are digging deep to understand what this all means. Many of us are digging in deeply – holding on for dear life in an attempt to keep still the troubled waters. There may have been a surplus of over reactions and under reactions that have ignited tempers to flare. Timing is everything and right now it might feel like the timing is off. Nothing quite gels right now.
Remember that even if you aren’t feeling the atmospheric pressure the gal next to you might be. We are all so interconnected. Interconnected with each other and everything around us. That is a lot of connection! When you think about this, it is easier to see how complicated life is. After all, how is it possible to control anything if it is so interconnected. You would have to control yourself: your thoughts, your emotions, and your physiology. And then you would have to control her or him and her or his thoughts, emotions, and physiology. And then the organization of bigger groups- like the solar system!
So if you are noticing things are a bit tight, that the timing is off, and communication is thwarted; remember you are a part of something bigger than yourself. You might do well to notice that. Notice what you notice and allow yourself the privilege of considering it. Take a minute. Practice patience and allow it to provide you perspective. Mind your fear about letting go. What do you want to do about what you see? How can you honor yourself in what seems like chaos? Can you consider that there may be an order to it? Can you allow yourself a place in the organization of order without control? Once you know these answers it will be clearer about how to move forward. It will be easier to respect yourself and the space around you.
Remember: Respect the space, you are a steward of the universe.

Mercury turns direct on Saturday. If you are among those looking forward to some relief, keep in mind that this retrograde is in Cancer and heavily associated with family. Therefore, the residuals of the retrograde may hang in the air for a bit. Rest assured though, if you have been under the weight of it, it is soon to change.
In this energy, people may be more apt than usual to cut off their nose to spite their face. There may be greater opportunity for moodiness as well. Give yourself and others 2.5 days to shift out of the mood. This is the time it takes for the moon to change signs.
Keep good perspective. Be mindful to move from moment to moment and notice if you get stuck. Getting stuck is okay, just move from the stuck moment to the next moment. Be kind to yourself if getting loose of the gunk takes longer than you’d like.
This a wonderful video to understand your thoughts so that you can make thoughts that support a satisfied life!
