a Mercury Retrograde report

I don't know why, but for some reason my arch nemises during Mercury retrogrades lately are clogged drains. This time I thought I had them beat. I planned ahead. Ran some baking soda and vinegar down the drains in the bathroom to give them a nice cleansing flush. Mercury turned retrograde and the drains didn't clog. I had to deal with other Mercury retrograde annoyances, but I thought to myself, "Well, at least the drains didn't clog. In your face Mercury!"

Needless to say, the drains are clogged again. Drains: 3 Wendy: 0

Mercury moves direct on December 4th.

Scorpio and Power

Scorpio rules the three areas of life where people feel either the most powerful or the most powerless: death, sex, and money. The lesson that Scorpio offers us is how to discern between false and real power, between what can be taken away and what can't. The area of your chart where Scorpio falls is where you are the most susceptible to giving your power away. It is also where you will learn how to access your real power, allowing you to move beyond illusions and fears.

Saturn Return in Leo: My Journey Part 3


05 chart
Originally uploaded by knowitall.
Right now, transitting Saturn is conjunct my natal Saturn and has moved into my ninth house. So it's only fitting that I've been taking a bunch of courses online. I've been studying Shakespeare's plays and Leonardo da Vinci. I'm going to be taking a class on Buddhism in January. With Sagittarius and Gemini so prominent in my chart I usually am studying a lot of things at once, but I tend to be scattered in my approach. I'm finding it easier to be disciplined and structured in my studies now. My energy feels more focused.

Saturn Retrograde in Leo

From November 22nd until April 4th, 2006, Saturn will be retrograde in Leo. This period will give us an opportunity to review issues surrounding responsibility in our lives, with a focus on issues arising between August 18th and November 22nd. This is a fertile time to analyze what you have been creating in your life and clear out what has been standing in your way. Look at where you have either taken on shame, blame, guilt, or put it on others, and ask yourself what you can do to learn and grow in that area. Also, look at where you have stepped up in your life and what you can do to build upon your positive actions.

The retrograde will most influence those going through a Saturn return, those with Leo or Aquarius prominent in your chart, and those with planets at about 11 degrees in the fixed or fire signs.
