Mercury trine Uranus 2016
Mercury trine Uranus 2016 is exact Wednesday at 12:45 AM PDT. Mercury squares off with Mars Friday at 1:49 PM, just before Uranus turns Retrograde that same afternoon at 2:06 PM, and stays Retrograde until December 29th. This is typical motion for Uranus, which Retrogrades once a year for about five months. (Read more about Retrograde cycles here.) It’s a good time to turn inward and to reconsider actions and plans when planets turn Retrograde. In the case of Uranus, the planet of sudden revolutionary change and flashes of intuition, reconsider changes and new ways of doing things you have implemented recently. Uranus is known for bringing ideas that arrive fully born, like Athena’s birth from Zeus’ head. Uranian types are often quite brilliant, but sometimes they can’t describe how they got to the conclusions they reach. That’s because the mental process happens in the unconscious and arrive unexpectedly, but it has really been brewing for some time. Mercury square Mars is acrimonious, so think before you speak. Mercury enters one of its home signs, Virgo, on Saturday at 11:18 AM. Mercury in Virgo is analytical and precise.
