Story by Will Harrison,
Hey, fellow wolves! Hope the Mercury retrograde has been treating you well and the chaos hasn’t been overwhelming – if it has been, relax. Enjoy the delays, the disorder and the miscommunications and just let everything flow nicely. There’s no need to fret about things that seem to “go wrong” as there’s always a reason for everything that comes to pass.
During this time when things don’t go so smoothly, it’s a great opportunity to be patient, have a good sense of humor and reflect. Sometimes the “catastrophes” of Mercury in retrograde can be some of the best signs out there to help steer us in the right direction.
Mercury will be retrograde until February 28, and things won’t snap back to normal right away, so I can’t stress the above advice enough – just be patient, and let it all go as it needs to.
I don’t know about you guys, but ever since the Sun entered Pisces on the 18 things have turned into a vortex for me. My mind is constantly wandering, I’m sleeping tons and dreams have been vivid – all Piscean attributes. As Neptune and the Sun have been conjunct, and will be for the next week, we’re all going to be feeling a little space cadet like and dreamy, continuing the trend for about the last three weeks of other planetary transits into Pisces.
This is one of the most mystical and emotional times of the entire year, and considering that conjunction, it has incredible potential for beautiful times with loved ones as well as beautiful times alone. This is a wonderful opportunity to do some reflection on our lives, our spirituality and our feeling of oneness with the universe. Some people find this feeling through math, others through history, but we all have access to it and should strive to strengthen that connection in this time.
This week is looking pretty dry for the first part with the moon in Capricorn energy until it transitions into airy Aquarius early Wednesday morning. For Monday and Tuesday, a practical attitude will be present and we’ll all feel the urge to get things done, be efficient and be humble.
This is a great way to start a productive week, even if the Sun is conjunct Neptune and causing us all to be in a wormhole while we’re working. Just be patient, take things one step at a time and you’ll reach your goal.
Wednesday and Thursday are going to be much more talkative and fun than earlier in the week with a lot of conversations between friends and colleagues in particular.
Communications, being garbled as they are with that Mercury retrograde, are going to have an emotional tinge, as the Moon becomes conjunct Mercury. So if miscommunications happen, try to find out the cause instead of reacting immediately and letting emotions rule your mind.
This weekend promises to be lovely as the new moon occurs in Pisces and joins the conjunction of our Sun and Neptune. What a dreamy time! Whether spent alone in quiet contemplation and perhaps listening to your favorite music, or spent with good friends having a good time with not just a few bottles, this weekend promises to be a very cleansing time emotionally and to have us all feeling good.
If you’re feeling a little blue, I really recommend some nice solitude to recharge your energies and a good deal of self-reflection. This is a great opportunity for all of us to access new levels of happiness and emotional fulfillment in our lives – let’s use it!
