A New Reality Emerges
Mercury turns retrograde on Friday, September 9 at 8:38pm until October 2, from 8°55' Libra to 24°41' Virgo. Its shadow period remains until October 17. When Mercury is retrograde, technology has the tendency to break down, appointments are forgotten, confusion sets in, message are erased, trips are postponed, and general mayhem happens. We also remember projects we had forgotten, people we hadn’t seen in a while reemerge, and we reconnect with places we hadn’t been to in a long time. In this particular retrograde cycle, a long-lost relationship could resurface, we could complete studies we had abandoned, or we might investigate deeper topics related to health and nutrition.
Pluto remains retrograde until October 8. Its shadow period continues until January 30, 2023. The degrees traveled in September (26°26'–26°08' Capricorn) are represented in the Sabian symbols by “a mountain pilgrimage.” Heights are reached through personal effort and spiritual integrity. World leaders who thought no one would ever notice their underhanded activities are being exposed. In these end times, darkness, corruption, lies, and dishonesty are no longer tolerated. A huge purge is occurring all over the world, revealing and gradually transforming all that is selfish and evil.
