The dominant theme this week arrives with the Full Moon on the 12th at 19 degrees Taurus. Full Moons are always filled with the promise of drama and this one may be no different as it comes in the darkness of impending winter and short days. Yet, nighttime is the playground of the Scorpio, so drama may be expected. This particular Full Moon also involves a Mercury retrograde in Scorpio. In fact, it is right before this Full Moon that we witness the transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun. This is a fairly rare occurrence and is worthy of note since the last time Mercury was in this position was in 2016. What does this mean astrologically? More than anything, the attributes of Mercury in its retrograde phase, will be amplified. Confusion, subterfuge, and deception are all highly likely. This is a time when deep digging and investigation could reveal something quite powerful and profound. The only problem with this backdrop is that the possibility of missed or incorrect information also exists. This can work in different ways, though. Information that was hidden may mistakenly come to light just as information may be misconstrued. Given that we live in a time of such media confusion it is easy to see how this particular retrograde could manifest a bevy of news that could be quite revealing. Where will you feel it? If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at, www.chrisflisher.com, or www.turningofthewheel.com.
With Mercury and the Sun in a conjunction, the ability to communicate will be highlighted so we can expect some major news to be presented. Consider a major campaign to try and reverse reality, for example. Or possibly an abundance of mis-information that could easily muddy the waters. In this particular alignment we also see an easy alignment to Neptune (also in retrograde) in Pisces. While this is generally considered to be a positive connection, the problem, whenever Neptune is involved, is obfuscation. All may appear well on the surface, but the truth is being hidden in some manner. This is the paradox of this era of “fake news” in which we live. Since retrogrades provide an opportunity to review any and all topics it may be wise to put special effort into reviewing facts, figures, sources, and all forms of communication scrupulously. All may not be as it appears. If there is doubt about what we see, then we should not take any fact or figure at face value, but rather use that inkling as a catalyst for deeper research to gain clarity. As matters within the political spectrum begin to gather momentum this single concept may be the most important take-away of the week. Where is that happening in your life?

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Sun and Mercury are your partners this week, especially if you are working with elderly people or within a large organization. Research is highly favored but be careful of misleading information. Check details, facts, and figures. Focus on career opportunities and you may finally get some traction. Full Moon activates your money potential.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Step carefully this week especially around the Full Moon in Taurus on the 12th. Tempers may flare and words may fly uncontrollably especially if involved in disagreements about your mutual plans with your significant partner. With unpredictable Uranus in Taurus you may be surprised by a rebellious partner. Watch your words and actions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Conversations about potential employment may be piquing your interest this week. Constructive talks may yield positive results and deliver a desirable exchange. Be mindful of reaching too far too fast, though. You might be better off to digest information before you act. Background work is helpful for ironing out the details. Double check all figures.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Exciting and stimulating exchanges with children are likely this week as a party theme dominates your world. Education and travel also figure prominently, but be aware of missteps and cancelled plans which could muddy the waters. Your primary relationship may be one of challenges, but you may be wise to regard these as necessary growing pains.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This should be an excellent time to focus your head energy on home and family topics. The only caveat could come from a confusion factor. This is when you’d do well to examine all transactions, conversation and possible offers before you jump in to accept or agree. Your daily life might be morphing into something completely new.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your ruling planet, Mercury is in retrograde so mind your words. Be mindful of this energy since it provides you an opportunity to revise a part of your life in a meaningful or, perhaps, more constructive manner. How you communicate or your creative output are particularly active. Be aware of tension with regard to finances, though.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Action is on your mind and you may be fulfilling that need with attention to domestic or family topics. Tread carefully though since aggression is present in this arena of your life. The possible tension could arise from a financial transaction or suggestion that may be met with resistance, rebellion, or unrealistic expectations..
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): You have great personal agency this week, but you also need to act cautiously or at least double-check all details. Mercury is in retrograde in Scorpio. While this aspect provides you with the ability to dig deeply beneath the surface, it can also obscure certain important details. Redouble your efforts to obtain the facts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The possibility of an aggressive act looms in the background for you this week. You may be in a dispute over a monetary topic or other resource short-coming so brace yourself for some tension. You are close to wrapping up a long-term project perhaps and the dispute arises out of that inevitability.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tension may be readily apparent while on the job this week. You may be reaching a breaking point where you can no longer continue. This same theme also provides a great impetus to break out of an unsatisfying situation. Take advice and encounters with co-workers judiciously and carefully review any and all plans before you act.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Work may be especially stimulating this week as the Sun and Mercury (retrograde) join forces in that area of your life. Bear in mind that the possibility of misinformation exists. It is never a bad idea to double check conversations and gain clarity where possible. Travel plans may deliver a bit of tension as details get obscured.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Conversations or research that deals with large organizations and business partners might get a bit aggressive, so bear that in mind. Education and travel hold the possibility of a mis-step so prepare for that accordingly. Career plaudits may be quite rewarding but also a bit surreal which may make you wonder why is there doubt.
