Mercury turns direct today after three weeks in retrograde motion, so after today communication will get a bit easier and we are less subject to all kinds of snafus.  It will take a few days for Mercury to pick up steam after its change of motion, but Mercury is in its own sign of Virgo where it is strong and able to operate without hindrance.

Additionally, Mercury is  in harmonious aspect with both Pluto (transformational power) and Venus (the power of attraction and love), so there is an agility now with the mind and communication matters that will serve us well.

As I wrote last week, the influence of Pluto is still strong and tomorrow it too changes direction as it begins its six-month forward travels.  The outer planets travel retrograde for six months out of the year, ensuring that we retrace the steps of any path that needs greater balance or perfection.  When Pluto begins moving direct again, its transformative power will be seen in the outer expression of our lives to a greater degree.

That transformative power deepens even more tomorrow as Mars, the planet of drive and desire, enters the passionate sign of Scorpio.  Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio and is quite at home in the intense emotional drive of the Scorpio influence.  But some of us are not quite as comfortable with this degree of intensity and you may need to take some time to acclimate to this new energy.  I’ll be writing more about Mars in Scorpio over the next few days.
