Mercury is currently Retrograde, so I suppose it was inevitable that I should get a puncture on my bicycle a couple of days ago, and equally inevitable that I should be at the furthest point away from home on the circuit I do. Before you get the wrong idea, I am not the sort who wears an anorak and bicycle clips and steals the washing off clotheslines. But I did manage to fix the puncture, which levelled the score with Mercury.
Not only is Mercury Retrograde, but Saturn and Neptune are 5 days off their second exact opposition: the 1st was last Sept, the 3rd and the final one is in June. So this could be a hard time for some of us. I think the Saturn-Neptune pressure is at its peak, and things may seem as confused and unclear and as blocked as they can get. But I think precisely because of that sustained pressure, it is a time when breakthroughs can be made. There’s only one way to go, and that’s up. It’s time for a paradigm shift. It’s time to realise that you’re going to stay confused (Neptune) unless you look at things differently. And that you’re not going to be able to make things happen (Saturn) if you carry on trying to do things in the same old way. The final phase of Saturn-Neptune, between now and June, can then be about building on this paradigm shift.
