Mercury Retrograde, Eclipse......ARE YOU READY!

Greetings and Blessings to Everyone, 

The month of August is not finished yet!  Yesterday was an eclipse and we have two more coming!

Did I mention, Mercury will be retrograding on August 30th?  So let me explain a bit further.

About two weeks before Mercury retrogrades, we begin to see "previews" and two weeks before eclipses and two weeks after an eclipse we tend to see some sort of an event happening in our lives.  This one is dealing with reality!

Astrology is about cycles and layering of energy and hopefully gives a good "weather report" of what can be expected.

At the end of August, there are a number of contributors adding to what looks like an interesting Labor Day Weekend!  

From now until the 26th of August, people born on the 30th, 31st, 1st of any month can be feeling it is time to let go of old patterns.  Why?  Simply put, a debt has been paid.  During this time, on the 23rd of August, the Sun will move into Virgo and discernment will be in effect for the next 30 days!  Each sign carries with it a virtue to keep in mind.

Here is a third component to Labor Day Weekend.  Remember the sadness we all felt back in November of 2015 with the Paris bombings and in June with the Orlando shootings?  On August 25th until September 22nd this powerful energy of Saturn and Neptune come back together for one last time.  It is a reality check.  This configuration gets triggered on September the 2nd through the 4th!  

So here is the scenario.  Mercury will be retrograde and any hidden problems can surface.  The next Eclipse will take place on September the 1st.  This eclipse is one of dealing with the truth and letting go of being unrealistic.  

Of course there is always the high road to take!  Be Fearless and discerning at the same time.  Let go of those things outdated!   Most of all have compassion for ourselves and our fellow people.   Love is always the answer!

Blessings, 

Betty
