Libra Seeking Balance

We are blessed with much quieter skies this week! Mercury will be leaving rambunctious Leo for calm, focused Virgo on Tuesday, reducing the drama a touch. As for major aspects there are only a few to keep an eye on. This means we can enjoy the first week of Leo Season!

Before Mercury changes signs, it will make an exciting trine to unconventional Uranus in Aries on Monday. I love this aspect for coming up with unique solutions. Once Mercury is in Virgo, it will stay awhile because it will be stationing retrograde in early August. It will return to Leo for about a week before stationing direct and after that Mercury will remain in Virgo until October 1. Since Mercury rules Virgo, it is quite comfortable there and we’ll benefit from this Mercury’s ability to keep track of important details.

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.
