The awe and wonder of the Solar Eclipse will not fade quickly. As the Moon speeds ahead of the Sun (effectively kicking off the new lunar cycle) it will meet with Mercury. Mercury is actually moving backwards to the exact degree of the where the Eclipse took place. At that point (28 degrees Leo) Mercury will pause (on Sept.5th) to receive enlightening vibes from Uranus (at 28 degrees Aries) further encouraging our heads and hearts to operate in sync. Mars too presses on towards the Eclipse point. In other words, the message of the Eclipse will be echoed by other planetary forces – particularly during the first few day of September where there is a high potential of profound flashes of creative genius – something that requires both an open heart (to receive) and plenty of patience between now and September 5th.
Also worth noting is Saturn’s placement, stationary direct this week. As it prepares to move forward the ‘higher mind’, our beliefs and time itself are emphasized under the influence of Sagittarius.
Lastly, since this Mercury retrograde period, which started on August 12th, is pertinent to what may be coming next it will be useful to re-read the horoscopes written at the beginning of the phase (click on your sign below):
