Assert Your Uniqueness
Mercury turns direct on October 9 at 0˚54’ Libra. Its shadow period remains until October 24. This degree is represented in the Sabian symbols by, “in a collection of perfect specimens of many biological forms, a butterfly displays the beauty of its wings, its body impaled by a fine dart.” As we revisit an old romance and have a chance to see in a clearer light all our relationships, we are able to hold in our mind’s eye the perfection that we seek. This is a time to know what we want in a deep emotional link without any compromise. Feelings of harmony, balance, beauty, and love are the only good reasons for entering a relationship.
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month until December 25. Its shadow period lasts until April 11, 2016. The degrees it travels this month (18˚56’–17˚44’ Aries) are symbolized by “the magic carpet of oriental imagery” and “an empty hammock stretched between two trees.” As we continue our journey into the unknown (reconstructing ourselves at a cellular level from the base up), we are also weaving into our new crystalline structure the pure wisdom of our ancestors, away from the technologies that have taken over our lives and in the stillness provided by nature.
Neptune remains retrograde this whole month until November 18. Its shadow period lasts until March 8, 2016. In September, it travels from 7˚38’ to 7˚07’ Pisces. The image associated with this degree is “a girl blowing a bugle.” Now is the time of reawakening to our truth and remembering, as well as asserting, our uniqueness. This is the month to tap into our inner talents and manifest our dreams.
