Astro-Notes on October 21, 2013 – guided by our inner light

Mercury stations retrograde this morning at 6:28 am EDT at 18:23 degrees of Scorpio and will trace his steps back to 2:29 Scorpio, where he will turn direct on November 10. This corresponds to a period when we review, recycle and restart communication-, schedule- and connection-wise. With this retrograde happening in my 3rd house, I will be relocating, per example, and it’s going to be a complex matter (Scorpio), because as of today I will be meeting and training with new co-workers and associates from different stores and then I will have to get used to a new location, place, store and job – thus, many endings and re-beginnings (Scorpio) are involved, which even extends to matters of mobility (3rd house theme), social security and insurance (8th house themes). Interesting in this regard is also that Mercury doesn’t complete his trine to Jupiter as he stations – only when he will have left his shadow (or echo phase) on November 28 will this happen, which marks the completion of our new store – we will be having a huge opening on the next day. – At 12:13 pm EDT will the Moon make ingress to Gemini and we’ll be feeling more at ease as well as chatty and social – that is until the Moon’s square to retrograde Neptune in Pisces when it is advisable to tune in and listen.

Tarot card of the day is the “5 of Pentacles”, which portrays a pilgrimage or a long journey taken as an act of faith or devotion. We can find the inner fortitude to persist in our quest and bolster ourselves, while resisting the temptation to succumb to ‘spiritual poverty’. It’s time to move on and to let us be guided by our soul’s ‘light’ or inner shining star. Moreover, in this context the card asks us to follow the high road during this process (detour) as we’re ‘re-covering’ ground that has been transformed or is evolving. It’s a time of transitioning, after which we will feel renewed and empowered.
