On March 30th, Mercury goes retrograde. Get ready for lots of communication and technical mishaps, crashes and failures. Letters may be lost in the mail. Emails unexpectedly disappear. Computers may crash. And important phone calls missed. When Mercury goes retrograde, astrologers highly suggest putting off signing contracts because when Mercury goes direct it usually falls through. This is not a time to shake hands or form partnerships, because when Mercury goes direct usually those partnerships don't turn out to be what you think they were.
Then on April 9th, Pluto goes retrograde. Pluto is the planet of war and power. It also triggers depression. This planet takes it's time to create change. It makes us feel our pain and choices. In April, it goes retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn energy is one where people are dedicated to their goals. They take their time, making sure it kicks-off with a big bang.
Finally on April 15th and April 29th, we experience two Lunar Eclipses. They will reveal the truth. They will create change. Eclipses bring opportunity. But they also bring the unexpected.
There also is a grand cross going on in the sky. Basically this is what is causing friction and power struggles. It's like being in a room with three other nagging people.
So what will each of us experience?
On a worldly level, some unexpected message will occur. We'll see political forces stepping up their game. We'll learn more about Malaysia Flight 370. However, because Mercury will be retrograde, the information shared may be miscommunicated or even lost.
On a personal level, we really need to slow down. Accidents are more likely to happen. Think before you speak, because you may say something you later regret. Look at all the facts, breath, and stop pointing the finger. And realize that you aren't the only person living in this world, or in your home.
Use this energy to create. Use this energy to lead positively. Use this energy to think things through and be fair.
Things to watch out for:
- Alcoholism and drug overdose.
- Drive super carefully because with Mercury in retrograde accidents are more likely.
- Pay attention to the weather because tornado's and electrical storms will be stronger
- Watch your temper. Arguing and fighting is more prevalent.
- Try not to let things brew internally.
- Unrealistic lawsuits.
- Finish and submit your taxes early!
