Mercury stations Direct 2016
Mercury stations Direct 2016 at 1:50 PM PST this afternoon. Don’t rush out and buy electronics, wait until the Storm is over on the 1st, or even better, until the Shadow ends on the 15th. Remember the day that Mercury Stations Direct or Retrograde is often the worst. A Station is just that–the planet stands still, thus increasing its power. Any planetary Station emphasizes that particular archetype. For instance, if Neptune was Stationary at your birth, this would greatly exaggerate its influence over your being, giving you an otherworldly quality. The Moon is Void in Leo until entering Virgo at 7:46 PM, making this a doubly liminal day. Lay low today and stay in a holding pattern for the next few days as the dust settles and the planet of the logical mind picks up some speed in forward motion. The day Mercury stations Direct is not the day to begin new projects.

This Retrograde has been particularly daunting for me. With Mercury in the practical earth sign of Capricorn, the Retrograde hit me where it hurt in basic survival mode. It was also amplified by the conjunction with Pluto and square to Uranus. The Uranus/Pluto square brings revolution. Change is often painful because the old order must be discarded or collapse in order to construct the new. I am sure much good will come out of the trauma of this Retrograde, but it may take a while to appreciate it. The rest of the week is pretty uneventful astrologically. Mercury will conjunct Pluto again on Friday and square Uranus on Sunday. Saturday we have a romantic Venus/Neptune sextile. Well, as romantic as Venus in Capricorn can get, which could mean a proposal, since Venus in Capricorn is loyal and duty-bound.
