Astrology for Monday, October 26
Just a quick reminder that Mercury is in retrograde motion, a time when logic is easily confused. Mercury is at 1 degree retrograde in Scorpio; the Sun is at 3 degrees Scorpio. This is a good time, not to initiate new projects, but to look deeply within. Look at your identity's most fundamental needs. Is it time to redefine who you are and what your most fundamental needs are?
I say this because as Mercury and the Sun are traveling close together, they are in opposition to Uranus in Taurus. New circumstances have arisen. Who are you, and what do you need now?
Speaking of self-identity, we also have Chiron in the sign of identity, Aries, asking a similar question. Who shall we be? What is our reality now? Not our perception of what is real, but reality itself? We have grown. Who shall we be?
Mercury Retrograde, asI have said, can be confusing. Another aspect, Venus in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces. This can add the element of confusion, deception or isolation in relationships, particularly ones where one serves and the other teaches.
Who are we now? What is our identity? Are there personal needs that urgently need to be redefined and communicated?
These are urgent and compelling questions now, personally and as a nation. Each of us must decide what is true, what is lie, where we stand, how our growth is reflected in how our needs being met. How each of us decides these questions will be our "raindrop" added to the bucket of water of collective humanity. Who are you now?
