Mercury retrograde in Capricorn and Sagittarius - Creating Reality and Moving Spirit

As 2016 wanes and we look forward towards 2017, it is poignant to end the year with Mercury retrograding. It has been some year, as we continue to live through the Tempest of Transition and watch the echo of the late 1920’s and mid 1930’s arise, offering our collective selves an opportunity to engage in creating reality in a more conscious manner. Deeply enslaved by draconian Victorian ideals, our collective awareness, or at least ability to be heard, was very different to it is now.

Mercury is technically retrograde from the 30th August until the 22nd September.

This entire process refers to the time prior to the retrograde wherein Mercury is at its furthest distance from the Sun in the evening skies until the time that it ascends as far away from the Sun as he possibly can climb in the early morning skies.

Holy War – Mars Retrogrades in Sagittarius April 2016

“Spring ahead, fall back” is a mnemonic that helps some folks (in the Northern Hemisphere) remember that clocks are pushed ahead for daylight savings time in the spring, and back for standard time in the autumn. Yet it also sums up nicely the flow of the astrological year: we begin to spring ahead with the Aries ingress, when the sun enters the first sign of the zodiac. Above the equator or below, it’s a time of beginnings.
