Having the Moon in your career sector as Mercury turns retrograde in your income sector ensures your professional instincts are sharp as you move into the most important 11 days of the year for income, work and career matters. This is the point where the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on both fronts.
Just nine days into your birthday month and new solar year and at a time when all your focus, apart from a sense of romantic nostalgia, would normally be on the future and the journey ahead, Mercury's retrograde turn in your sign gives you a chance to put a lot of your focus on the rear view mirror. With your heart not becoming engaged until tomorrow this is the perfect day to not only take a trip down life's memory lane, but to put thoughts of the future on hold for now.
Some smart time management may be required today, especially as you need to create time to be spontaneous. While the terms smart time management and spontaneity might not normally belong in the same sentence, if every minute of your day is accounted for then spontaneity won't get a look in. What you have to account for today is a need for time to put out the 'do not disturb' sign and time for Venus to work her magic, as she works to put you in the right place at the right time.
The Moon's position in your relationship sector over the last few days has helped cement what was already strong support for friendship and relationship building, but just hours before leaving something happens that takes this to a whole new level. With the doors already open to the past and second chances on the communication and relationship fronts, Mercury's retrograde turn in your friendship sector opens the doors to the past and second chances across the friendship and relationship building fronts.
Heart and head will both be fighting for your attention today but it's because they're coming from such different places that may appear to represent a problem. For as Mercury turns retrograde in your career sector, opening the door to second chances on the career front at a time when they're also open to second chances on the work and income fronts, there's a need to keep your head in the game. Yet with Venus in her last full day in an adventurous part of your chart she and your heart are doing everything they can to retain a balance between work and play.
The normal pattern of each year is that Mercury will spend around 15 days in an adventurous part of your chart, usually around the same time as the Sun and that together they will then move onto your career sector, ready to get down to business. Yet after 23 days in an adventurous part of your chart, despite the fact that the Moon's return to your work sector will put some focus onto work matters, Mercury instead turns retrograde, deciding the spirit of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure is just too important to discard.
The second Mercury retrograde phase of 2016 begins today and while this brings a danger of mixed messages, misunderstandings and mistakes, with Murphy of Murphy's law fame coming to stay for the next few days, by measuring twice and cutting once you'll avoid the danger and access the opportunities. You do need to avoid jumping into or rushing financial and money matters, by guarding against the pitfalls Murphy's law could trip you up in and by practicing due diligence you end up accessing second chances. This is a good time to check those old lotto tickets in the back of the drawer.
Having the Moon in your communication sector as Mercury, planet of communication turns retrograde in your relationship sector today is almost too good to be true. Not only is this a chance to give your emotional responses a voice and the articulation to avoid the pitfalls of a Mercury retrograde phase, but helps to cement a partnership with Pluto, just 10 days after he turned retrograde in your communication sector. This is a partnership that opens the doors to the past and second chances on both fronts, with a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
While you have sensed for a while that the tides are turning across the income, work and career fronts, as the Moon's monthly visit to your income sector wraps up, as well as leaving you with a nose for money this will leave you with a sense that the tides are turning in your favour. With the doors already open to the past, second chances and untapped potential on the income and career fronts, Mercury's retrograde turn opens them to work matters as well. However, expect playful forces to put up a fight.
Mercury's retrograde turn today can't be seen as an isolated event and instead part of a bigger picture, playing into Pluto's early days in retrograde motion and lucky Jupiter's final days. For the next 11 days the doors are open to the past, second chances and an opportunity to make up for lost time across the personal, playful, romantic and adventurous fronts. As life wakes you up to what you've been missing out on, you're being reminded that it's never too late to make up for lost time. How long have you been sleep walking your way through life?
The second Mercury retrograde phase of 2016 begins today with Murphy of Murphy's Law fame walking up to your door as we speak, suitcase in hand as he comes to stay for the next three weeks. Turning retrograde in your home and family sector Murphy is setting up camp in your home, but you can turn him from an unwelcome houseguest to a saviour if you use this as an opportunity to connect, make up for lost time and to give the past and unsaid words a voice. Murphy will be watching to see what you're sweeping under the carpet and while you're out will be checking the closet for skeletons.
Just as the Moon has helped to bond not only auspicious forces for friendship and relationship building but at a time when the doors are now open to the past and second chances on both fronts, Mercury turns retrograde in your communication sector. This is the point where these three planets come together to create the most stunning 11 day period, where the doors are open to the past and second chances on the communication, relationship and friendship fronts at the same time. Finally you're able to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
