This Week’s Astro-Insights – 14-20 August 2017


Mercury Retrograde

We begin the week with Mercury, planet of travel, tech and communications, well and truly retrograde  – a condition set to last until early September.  For many, this is likely to result in delays, mix-ups and/or confusion, especially when it comes to the finer details of deals, discussions or plans.

My best advice: use this time to review, edit or revisit any project already in motion or that has been put on ice, and use past precedent to deal with any pressing current issues or queries that have the potential to jam the breaks on progress or get in the way of making deadlines.

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.
