Venus Direct | Mercury Retrograde – Jan/Feb ’14
Venus is now Direct and everything it rules may take on a new feel for you: what you value, how you value yourself, money, relationships and creativity. These are all areas that affect your quality of life. Now you get to take everything you’ve learned since Dec 21st and bring it with you as you create your new incarnation in 2014.
Retrogrades can bring in people/things from your past, so has anyone or anything shown up yet? If not, stay tuned… there are more Retrogrades to come as we move through the first half of the year. You never know when you may experience a “blast from the past!”
Jupiter (beliefs) opposes Pluto (power) today, inviting those with opposing beliefs to dig in their heels and challenge one another. As always with a hard Pluto aspect, don’t engage in a power struggle – it’s a losing effort. Take your sail out of their wind and either remove yourself or appreciate the passion that the other has for their position. That is the high road – rising above the drama (and emotion) at hand :))
Mercury Retrograde – Feb 6 to 28
Heads up! Schedule your important travel, meetings and calls now, while sending any major communications as soon as possible, because Mercury Retrograde begins on Thursday, Feb 6 until the end of the month.
Back up your data and double check travel plans, your car, agreements and details that may become fuzzy as you move through the coming month.
Also, know that misunderstandings and miscommunications are common during Mercury Retrograde, so decide in advance to be proactive by being extra patient and compassionate, and by giving everyone the benefit of the doubt.
Use this time to revise, rework, clear clutter and make corrections that will serve you going forward. Resistance to “what is” creates an energy drain and victim consciousness. If you ever feel like the world is against you, it’s showing you were you are against yourself!
Go with the flow – and the flow will be course corrections, clearing, revisions, and making amends where necessary. The more ownership you take for your experience, the empowered you will be!
Pay attention to the long Moon Void of Course periods this week. Don’t schedule important meetings, dates, tasks or launches during Moon Void of Course times. The Void Moon is good for leisure, spiritual connection, routine and creative activities, but not for targeted results.
Knowing the Void Moon times and acting accordingly goes to your responsibility for creating what you want in life.
