Mercury retrograde ended on Monday, but there’s one more checkpoint to get through with Pluto, and that happens on Friday evening.
There are only a few more days of Mercury retrograde to go. Although the retrograde transit has officially been in operation for the past two weeks, if you look back, you’re likely to identify the past five weeks or so as an intensified work-your-way-through-it cycle.
While there’s still another week before the messenger planet becomes visible in the morning sky, this sun/Mercury alignment sheds more light on circumstances, priorities, and the lessons of the day.
Right out of the 2016 starting gate, Mercury in Aquarius in a confrontational alignment with Mars has stirred up terrorism and international politics, raising the surprise, shock, and violence quotient.
And so, this is Christmas—a time to put aside the demands of the everyday world and find comfort and peace as best we can.
