Libra Seeking Balance

Three planets change sign this week, one in reverse and two moving forward. Mercury moves back into Aries from Taurus on Thursday, the Sun leaves Aries for Taurus on Wednesday, and Mars moves ahead into Gemini on Friday. Got that?! 🙂 It will take some adjusting to these differences but we’ll manage.

Initially the Sun shifting into Taurus brings a sense of relief after living with charged up Aries for the past month. This time the Sun immediately conjoins retrograde Mercury in Taurus, and this could focus our thoughts more strongly than usual in the here and now.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
