MERCURY IS RETROGRADE through April 15th.
You might want to use extra caution in communications and decision making now that MERCURY IS RETROGRADE through April 15th. **Read Below for where your Sun Sign is influenced by Mercury Retrograde in Aries.
Communications can get snarl-y, technical problems can hold things up, and obstacles can seem to block us from getting where we want to go.
But truthfully, Mercury Retro is a golden opportunity for integration and awareness. It helps us review recent decisions and actions to make sure they are truly right for us. And, if we are on the wrong path, it can stop us so we eventually turn to the right path.
This particular Mercury Retro is in the assertive, fiery sign of Aries. This helps us with
After all, wherever we have Aries in our Birth Chart is where we are beginning a new cycle of experiences this lifetime. It is where we are learning self-reliance and initiation, and how to act upon the direction of our own Spirit, rather than the traditions of our tribe.
Of course the challenge with Aries is to act on the genuine direction of our Spirit, rather than the competitive, dominating urge of our ego. Aries gives us the warrior spirit so we can conquer our lower nature. But it can also give us an urge to conquer anyone that thwarts our desires.
This Mercury Retrograde can help us clarify our intentions: Are we doing things out of our high calling and inner heroism? Or are we doing things out of against-ness or an ego-driven need to conquer and “be right?”
Let’s talk about where you have Aries in your chart and how you can leverage this and the coming Astrological Forces to be prepared and benefitted by what's ahead.
This whole year is about empowerment, especially in areas where we have held our powers back for fear of somehow being "too much."
Use this Mercury Retrograde to hone in on your Spirit’s calling: What makes your heart spring alive?
What's calling you from the loving and excitement of your being-ness?

Top 10 Eclipse Meanings Your Astrologer Wants You to Know
#1 Eclipses are considered sacred times when our awareness can attune more readily with the Divine.
(Do yourself a favor and take some quiet time during the Eclipse)
#2 Eclipses are considered Cosmic Gifts that allow us to “disrupt” old patterns and karmas and replace them with what we choose to have in our consciousness now.
#3 Monday’s Total Solar Eclipse has been, and will continue to be, extremely eventful straight though September. But it's effects don’t actually begin to peak until February – October 2018!
(And into 2019 - including politically – I will write more about that later)
#4 Eclipses act as “Cosmic Course Correctors.” They indicate where necessary changes are about to happen – often in surprising or shocking ways.
So If something disrupting does happen, be patient: It’s trying to get you headed in a better direction.
#5 Monday’s Eclipse takes place in the dramatic, regal, warm sign of Leo. This ignites a new cycle of power and expression in your life, especially in the area of your life ruled by Leo.
Leo is all about Power, Leadership, and Expression. It’s also about Loving of every kind: Romantic love, Heroic love, Expressive Love and Courageous Love. Wow! That is a lot to ignite and this Eclipse is doing just that!
That said, there are volatile sides to the August 21st eclipse to consider...
#6 Warrior Mars plays a huge role in this Eclipse as does Retrograde Mercury. This combination could bring unusual insightfulness and courage. But it can also spark tempers and misunderstandings. So be doubly calm and thoughtful. … That’s because…
#7 This particular Eclipse is known for “The Breaking Apart of Alliances and Relationships.”
So be wise in how you handle disagreements between now and early September as unnecessary separations can happen all too easily.
(Better to wait until Septmeber to resolve differences)
#8 Since the 1600’s this Eclipse has been called the “The Death of the King.” Perhaps we will lose a leader.
And/ or, perhaps we will release whatever we personally have held as “king” in our lives.
#9 Monday’s Eclipse takes place conjunct the Bright star Regulus. Regulus eminates a tremendous pride and expansive prowess, encouraging a life well-lived and celebrated.
But if our Regulus energy feel crossed or hurt, it can spur quite a taste for revenge. Watch for revenge in your motivation and in others', as we might have karma to work out there.
Note: President Trump was born on a Total Eclipse with his Super-Warrior Mars on Regulus. His chart is quite powerfully eclipsed, which indicates BIG changes are likely in store for him. And perhaps aggression on a personal and global scale, especially over the coming 2 weeks.
#10 The fact that this Eclipse's Path of Totality falls in the United States indicates we are headed for bigger and more dramatic changes and events. (That is why this particular Total Eclipse is so important to the USA and those living in the USA)
Astrologers believe that since the Path of Totality cuts a line through the middle of the country its the Middle Americans who will be most affected with turning-point events.
It is also considered that since the Path of Totality cuts the country in half, it is indicating “The Country is “divided.” (Can it become even more so? We are at a choice point, Ithink.)
Let’s face it: Eclipses are magical and spiritual. But since Eclispes often often ask us to let go of something so we can move on and grow, our personalities can find them quite emotional and tense.
So do your best to center yourself and breathe into your decisions so you can use the opportunity of this Divine Transmission to your greatest advantage.
And, touch into the Lion Heart of YOU to see what is your unique soul expression urging you to bring forward now. Forget the past- This New Moon Eclipse is bringing you a new chapter, indeed!

Tomorrow’s (8/7/17) Aquarius Eclipse signals something BIG is coming to fruition in your life– quite possibly involving Love and Friendship.
This socially-oriented eclipse is the first of two eclipses happening this August 2017. Both promise significant events and feedback about choices we are making.
It’s a perfect time to reflect on how you express your loving in your personal life as well as in your greater community.
Take stock of how you have been giving and receiving love: What works for you? What if anything, isn’t really working?
And get ready for some (surprising) change!
Eclipses can bring goals, intentions, and relationships to a decisive head. If there is an even better path for you, it can show up – and quite quickly.
But if something or someone is not right for you, this eclipse can bring it to an end – also quite quickly. And, usually, if something ends during an eclipse, it is over. No going back.
That’s because eclipses are about fate and destiny: If necessary, eclipses interrupt our plans and put us on another, more-perfect-for-us, path.
By far your greatest experience of August’s Eclipses depends on where they ignite your Birth Chart. Let’s look to see what fate and destiny are unfolding for you, your next steps and beyond. I read the stars so you can know more about your life’s purpose and circumstances. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-740-3654. I’d love to see you!
*The August 7th Aquarius Eclipse also has a special impact on your Sun Sign. Read below for where that it for yours.
Importantly, although the days and weeks of August’s Eclipses will be quite eventful, their true effects will reverberate for quite some time.
(This is particularly true of the coming uber-powerful Great American Eclipse on August 21st . That eclipse indicates considerable impact on our lives unfolding for years to come! More about that one later…)
One of the wisest uses of Eclipse power is to set a clear intention of what you would like - now and going forward.
An eclipse is considered a magical opportunity for you to interrupt limiting patterns of consciousness and reboot yourself with the consciousness you choose, perhaps with a more expansive, freer, awakened perspective.
(Hint: Forgiveness frees your consciousness!)
What would you like going forward? What would your ideal scene be?
Hold that vision for yourself as a guiding Light through these changing times.
This Astrologer Adores you!

August's TWO Life-Changing Eclipses
We are now under the strongest rays of the magical, destiny-shifting vibrations of the TWO ECLIPSES happening this August.
First we’ll be experiencing the friendly, social Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse on August 7th which brings something about our Loves and Friendships to fruition.
Then, on August 21st, we’ll experience the extremely powerful, for some even formidable, Leo New Moon Eclipse, aka Great American Eclipse. That eclipse sets something in motion involving Love and Power that unfolds for each of us over the coming 19 years.
This is a big deal!
Eclipses are tremendously significant shifting points in our karmic trajectory: They are famous for triggering necessary changes in our lives - and often very suddenly!
There also tends to be lots of surprises around eclipses - something can happen that “eclipses” - or takes precedence over - your plans.
As changeable and wild as the coming weeks and months will likely be, these eclipses are really about your long game: They are helping rearrange things around so you can move to a higher level of your own life potential. And their effects take a while to blossom.
Astrologers consider eclipses as extraordinary moments when the normal flow of planetary rays are intercepted so we can “reboot” our consciousness and not be as held down to our past conditioning.
“Ah-Ha! “ moments are likely. And, considering the trajectory-shifting powers of these energies, even tiny positive changes made can result in huge successes down the road.
Here’s some other qualities of eclipses:
Hint: One big theme of these eclipses is LOVE. Both eclipses highlight LOVE in many expressions and forms… I’ll be writing you more about that soon…
Tonight’s Cancer New Moon brings an internal, deep vibration perfect for awakening ideas and instincts that have been just under the surface of your awareness.
