Mercury goes direct Sunday, March 14 at 4:02 p.m. EST. Things will start to move forward again, and we can get back to the business of signing contacts, accepting new jobs, buying cars, and in general pushing ahead with projects. This is not to say, however we are totally out of the woods yes. Mercury is stationary retrograde March 17-March 20. The Stationary retrograde period is often a time retrograde like events occur, including miscommunication, breakdowns of situations and equipment and new information becomes available that can change your direction, yet again. Mercury will be in the shadow period, which is the final phase of the retrograde where things are still not quite normal until Mercury reaches 19 degrees of Pisces on April 6. After this its full steam ahead.
On another note Mars entered Aries March 13. This is a powerful placement for Mars and over the next 5 weeks energy will continue to drastically change as the fast moving planets leave the Pisces stellium. Mars in Aries at 0 degrees is considered a critical degree and we have seen many world events occur over the past week. A new Pope was elected, scientists have proven the existence of the Higgs boson particle-called the 'God particle.' The Higgs boson is often called "the God particle" because it's said to be what caused the "Big Bang" that created our universe many years ago. The nickname caught on so partly because it's a great explanation of what it's supposed to do -- the Higgs boson is what joins everything and gives it matter. Doctors said last week they cured 14 adults of AIDS, and a diagnostic blood test for fibromyalgia has been recognized.
Mars is at home in Aries and in the sign of forward movement. I would say the Red planet is doing what it is supposed to, and so it will go in your own life. (contact Leslie for a personal reading at www.lesliehale-astrology.com)
