Following the indulgent Full Moon in Taurus yesterday, the Moon ingresses into Gemini, and we are drawn back into the realms of ideas, thought processes, and making connections. However, Mercury—the ruler of Gemini—is retrograde in Scorpio and in aversion to the Moon. It may feel as if we are too swept up in feelings that are not yet intelligible to think clearly or efficiently. Be patient with yourself and others. Speak carefully and listen with care. Mercury makes a sextile to Saturn in Capricorn, the second of three such aspects—the first was on October 14 and the third will be November 30. As Mercury moves through this retrograde cycle, these aspects to Saturn are asking us to review our emotional boundaries as well as the places where we have felt like our voices were limited. Creating and maintaining healthy boundaries requires coming to voice, speaking and articulating what is and is not okay—which may feel unfamiliar or in a process of transition. The Sun in Scorpio makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, offering new understanding or perspective on how power is operating in our bodies and our world. Things that have been hidden have been coming into view for a while. The Sun in Scorpio is reminding us that it isn’t an accident that you feel how you feel; it isn’t merely personal that there are feelings that have been hidden or repressed. Those experiences are always part of larger, social repressions, and as we uncover these hidden places in our own lives, that shifts how power operates throughout the collective as well. Finally, Mercury makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces, also the third of these aspects—the first was on October 15 and the third will be November 28 after both Neptune and Mercury station direct. This trine is an invitation to listen for messages that seem to come from beyond the veil. Allow yourself to drift and dream into non-ordinary states; meditate, daydream, fantasize, journey with the ancestors, and listen for insights that you may not yet understand but will become clearer in the days ahead.
