27-29 DEC, 2016: HIGH DRAMA AT O.K. CORRAL – THE SHENANIGANS OF MERCURY RETROGRADE AND THE MOON
The next three days (27 – 29 Dec, 2016) will be blanket fort days for many. The Sun heads for its conjunction with Mercury Retrograde at 7 Capricorn (tomorrow) whilst currently trining the North Node at 6 Virgo. At present, the Moon conjuncts Saturn at 20 Sagittarius (activating Uranus-Ceres-Eris at 20-22 Aries, Jupiter at 20 Libra, Chiron at 20 Pisces and Venus at 23 Aquarius). Mars conjuncts the South Node at 6 Pisces. Uranus is preparing to station direct on the 29th.
Please Note: If you live in Asia/Australia – it´s more like the 28-30th of December.
Long story short , pay attention what you say and how you say it. Breakdowns in communication and technology are entirely possible at this time. It may be better to stall important discussions and say nothing at all till the vibe eases – especially if you´re looking at karmic dynamics that involve male, yang or masculine energy (however you define it). If your general tactic is evasion, perhaps consider the opposite.
Now this also depends on how this interacts with your natal chart – some of you will be sailing through this and breaking down barriers in communication. But in the balance of probability, it´s more likely to be blanket fort time for the majority.
This morning I woke up with a sore throat and my internet refused to work for any of my sessions. At all. So I rescheduled them all. You cannot imagine the difficulty I´ve had in just posting this!
Given the feel of the cosmic winds, I would say – generally speaking –
Take a mental health day or try to observe a vow of silence or non-response (in very tense situations – conversely, if your general approach is to stonewall, do the opposite).
Drink plenty of water and get rest. Sleep in if you can.
Lavender, chamomile, eucalyptus, tea tree, etc. can help with the throat chakra / communication / respiratory issues. Whether you´re using a herbal infusion, essential oil, etc. be sure to check in with a practitioner beforehand for guidelines on safe usage and dosage.
Gemstones like lepidolite and blue lace agate will bring calming energy to a situation. This mantra may also be of benefit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jr2lp7cw7CY
Spend some time in nature, by a babbling brook or a silly stream. And giggle if you can.
Take nothing personally. Collective baggage is being flung around like cream pies at a clown fest. Some people are not even aware that they´re doing it. Dodge the pie if you can and keep on moving. But if you tend to dodge (a little too much), do the converse.
