One of the most talked about planets is Mercury, the planet that dominates all facets of communication. Mercury is going to go retrograde on August 12th at 9:00 PM EDT. You can’t escape Mercury on the news even in discussions with non-astrologers. Mercury rules two Sun signs, Gemini and Virgo. My clients send in more questions related to Mercury and consistently share examples with me about their retrograde experiences than any other planet.
I am sharing this article that I wrote 17 years ago to give you greater insight into the qualities and personality of Mercury. The Title is “AN INTERVIEW WITH THE MESSENGER” and I hope you enjoy what Mercury has to say as the Messenger of the Gods explains what makes him tick.
AN INTERVIEW WITH THE MESSENGER
How quickly the past month flew by for me. How about you? I had two big projects going and am almost finished the last one. On Monday morning at 6:29 AM EDT the Sun moves to Aries and we experience the spring equinox while the Moon moves to Capricorn a few hours later. You will find notable dates listed in this newsletter as well as the lunar and solar shifts. Feedback was buzzing over security breaches and the ever-increasing ways that scammers are preying on consumers; several are highlighted on page 1.
This month’s material highlights Aries year ahead and includes eclipses through early 2018. Aries will have a productive year including a couple of the celebrities on the list of birthdays who are featured in the People, Places and Topics in the News section; Eddie Murphy and chef Cat Cora, both born on April 3. The biggest volume of mail came from readers disappointed in how the current administration is behaving in the U.S. and on the World Stage. I’ll write more about this in coming months. In the Current Planets section, you’ll see that much is going on with planetary activity in the coming month, so check out what is ahead for your sign and note the increasing number of retrograde planets and their impact. Readers Corner features questions involving relationships to both personal life and career. Questions of this type are among the most prolific I receive and this month, all involve members of the sun sign, Aries. Enjoy the quote of the month and information about office hours and services.
I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
