The Planets this Week: August 6 - 12, 2017
The headline of the week, the month and the year is the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on Monday. A lunar eclipse can have an impact on our emotional state and often affects relationships with others. The way you respond to crises may need adjustment when circumstances warrant a new approach. You may feel disoriented, excitable or emotionally wired during a lunar eclipse.
During this Lunar Eclipse in Leo our creative endeavors really begin to take shape. Our mood is uplifted with Leo’s jovial spirit. Feeling particularly passionate about experiencing life to the fullest, you have full appreciation for the splendors of the natural world. Colors may seem brighter, people friendlier; playtime and leisure activities are highlighted. A love affair that began at an earlier time may be progressing to another level. You should begin to get a clearer picture of what may be possible between the two of you. Try to enjoy the time that you have together right now.
The other big news of the week is Mercury turning retrograde. Yes, here it is again the planet of communication wrecking havoc! Mercury Retrograde is a phenomenon that has worked its way into mass consciousness. The moment a communication snafu occurs, folks blame Mercury Retrograde! The truth is, not all miscommunications can be laid at the feet of this little planet. But it does behoove us to observe a few simple principles about this event.
Everyone knows that Mercury Retrograde is a great time to do things that start with ‘re’: repair, reduce, reconsider, recreate. But what else can you do to bring out the best energy of this period? Certainly, thoughts turn more inward than outward, so taking care of personal affairs is a great idea.
Tune in on Monday 6pm PT/9pm ET to find out more…
