Some things come together easier than expected this week while other things fall apart. We’re halfway through Mars retrograde as Mercury and Venus face off with the red planet on the 29th and the 1st. Mercury and Venus only oppose Mars once every two years, bringing a tense moment for communications and relationships of all kinds. Those born with this signature in their birth chart—like Dolly Parton and David Lynch—are usually experts in communicating the depth of human experience. But going through the transit on a collective level is challenging. Though Mercury and Mars connect with stabilizing Saturn bringing some solid breakthroughs, Mercury also squares off with hazy Neptune on the 1st leading to misunderstandings and confusion. Choose your words carefully or risk hurting someone’s feelings.
