Gemini Mercury Retrograde, Compassion is Key

Compassion is the response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help. Compassion is really the act of going out of your way to help physical, spiritual, or emotional hurts or pains of another. Compassion is often regarded as having an emotional aspect to it, though when based on cerebral notions such as fairness, justice and interdependence, it may be considered rational in nature and its application understood as an activity based on sound judgment. There is also an … [Read more...]

Mercury Retrograde Shadow until July 16, 2014

What is Mercury Retrograde? Three, and sometimes four, times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of approximately 3 weeks. "Appears" is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don't even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun … [Read more...]

Mercury goes Direct Today ~ Woo! Hoo!

After more than three weeks of mis-communication and misunderstandings, Mercury will finally resume its direct motion at 8:50 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. Hooray! Hopefully you survived this transit and saw the positive side of things. Many have been saying, whew, what a rough ride this one has been! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not an oncoming train, it truly is the light of day. You see it has not been solely the effect of Mercury retrograde that … [Read more...]

Mercury Direct Tomorrow – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road!‏

Gemini and Virgo rejoice as their ruling planet, Mercury turns direct on Sunday. With the stellium in Pisces, Virgo has been swirling and knocked around for weeks. The sooner their ruler can get the hell out of Pisces the better! Gemini is also looking good tomorrow. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter in their sign, so seize the day! For everyone else, this is your green light to shop and sign things, but I doubt many rush right out to do so. Clarity (Mercury) may not be here is exactly … [Read more...]

Elsa P: September 6, 2012: Think, Act, Imagine, Get Along‏

Regardless of background noise, most have something going well in their life at this point. If not, this is a good week to whip something into shape as things are more favorable than we've seen in a while. Specifically, Mercury is in its own sign, Virgo, Mars is at home in Scorpio, Neptune is in the sign it rules, Pisces, and Saturn is in exaltation in Libra. You should be able to think (Mercury), act (Mars), imagine (Neptune) and get along with others (Saturn in Libra). That's the … [Read more...]

Elsa P: June 7, 2012 – Shocking News and Mental Pressure‏

Mercury leaves Gemini for Cancer on Thursday. Expect a choppy transition as Mars in Mercury-ruled Virgo will square the Sun and Venus in Mercury-ruled Gemini, providing enough angst that some will act out. If you can hold yourself together, I would, as Friday brings relief in the form of a grand trine in air. Saturday brings us a cardinal T-square involving Mercury, Uranus and Pluto that will dominate the next four days. Mercury-ruled Geminis and Virgos will be shocked and pressured but … [Read more...]

Elsa P: May 24, 2012 – Gaslighting, Angst and Accident

Mercury hits Gemini today and mental function is emphasized all week long. If you love puzzles, you may enjoy this but many will be stressed and distracted. Mercury rules short trips in the car or on foot, so keep an eye out for people who might space out and run a red light. Early in the (newsletter) week the Sun and Mercury in Gemini square Neptune so we're looking at mind fog or mental confusion. Mars is in Mercury's sign, Virgo, so some of this might be inflicted deliberately via some … [Read more...]

Elsa P: May 17, 2012 – Imagination Aids Problem Solving

The solar eclipse in Mercury-ruled Gemini on Sunday marks the peak of this week where mental functions will be emphasized.Variety is a key concept for Gemini and we'll see plenty of that. Thursday, the Moon in Aries opposes Saturn in Libra putting focus on the me-we axis. So many want to be "on their own" (Aries) but supported by others (Saturn in Libra). People want to be independent, but not alone and balancing this is the job of the day. Friday, the Moon joins the Sun, Mercury and … [Read more...]

ELSA P. – Planetary Positions to Guide…Neptune in Pisces.

Pisces! We start the week with Mercury, Chiron and Neptune in Pisces. By the end of the week, the Sun and Moon will also be in Pisces. This constitutes water as far as the eye can see and then some. People will think (Mercury) about the ethereal (Pisces). They may get ideas or information from nebulous sources. You know how some people say things like, "That's God talkin'." It's that kind of week. Knowledge is divine or at least it seems that way. This influence peaks on Tuesday the 21st, … [Read more...]

ELSA P. – Planetary Positions to Guide…Relationships and interactions

Venus in Pisces opposes Mars in Virgo all week long which puts people at odds. Relationships and interactions of all kinds (Venus) are hotted up (Mars). Expect to see people fight and challenge each other, left and right. Don't expect to be clear on who the victim (Pisces) is because some people attack or get what they want (Mars) by feigning injury. Anyway you turn it, this is going to be irritating, particularly for people who have planets between 15-23 degrees in the mutable (Gemini, … [Read more...]

ELSA P. – We have a very interesting week coming up!

ELSA P. - Planetary Positions to Guide... We have a very interesting week coming up ... For some, it will be extraordinary and they may not even notice because Neptune, a planet famous for obscuring things is involved here. Neptune reverses course, turning retrograde today in very tight aspect to Mercury just as it changes signs. Gemini, Virgo and Pisces are bound to be caught in some kind of time warp or confused or nuanced communication. I'm talking about something akin to deja … [Read more...]

ELSA P. – Planetary Positions to Guide…

The air and fire signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius) dominate as we head into the weekend making this is a good time to flirt or assert yourself socially in other ways. Make the call or the contact now when people (including you) are fairly light on their feet because the emotional temperature will drop over the weekend and people will be less amenable. Saturday brings a reality check but it is no worse than anything we've dealt with over the last month. If you like how … [Read more...]

Uranus Retrograde until March 2011..watch out!

      A Celebration of Women suggests that each and everyone of us simply breathes, holds our tongues and grin when smiles are just too much to bear... March 2011 is the time Seven Years of Steadfast Aries arrives.     Uranus, the Planet of Rebellion,turns Retrograde   on July 5, 2010 until March 2011     Uranus is the oddball of the Solar System.

ELSA P. – New Moon In Pisces, Maintaining Equilibrium And Giving To Get‏

We're headed into the new moon in Pisces on Friday where the key concept is serve or suffer. Some people don't know what that means but it's very simple. If you're feeling bad and can do something kind for someone else, invariably it will brighten your day. Give to get. Help others to help yourself.     The new moon is conjunct Mars, and Virgo is likely to be stressed and agitated along with the other mutable signs, Gemini and Sagittarius. Virgo struggles with the intangible, foggy, ethereal … [Read more...]
