Mercury Retrograde ~ Lunar Eclipse
Mercury starts moving retrograde on Sunday, 5th October and stays retrograde until 25th October. So most of its retro movement falls between the total Lunar Eclipse on the Full Moon 8th October and Solar Eclipse on New Moon 24th October.
This is the last time this year that Mercury gives us three weeks of communication, travel and computer challenges to deal with. So be prepared and backup all important data on your electronic devices, take extra time ( and money) to accommodate delays in travel and chill when communication is slowing down or not forthcoming at all, most likely it is not meant personally.
The time when Mercury is retrograde is best used to reassess and reevaluate recent plans, strategies and decisions. You can make the most of it by sorting and filing papers, files on your computer, reducing clutter and generally delaying important decisions! You never know your own best interest and tiding up loose ends often brings forth a better plan resulting in a fresh look and improved efficiency.
The times leading up to and between eclipses are delicate to say the least. We often do not see exactly what is going on and it is good to avoid major decisions. The lunar eclipse on the 8 October conjuncts Uranus in Aries opposing the Sun in Libra ( 4 degrees ahead of Venus in Libra) and squares Pluto in Capricorn – the emphasis is on relationship issues! This can be love relationships, marriages and also business partnerships, so be aware of what is building up in the next week, look at it calmly and try not to over react at least until the beginning of November.
The Full Moon Eclipse on 8th October will be visible in Australia ( weather permitting) and starts at 7:17 pm ( prenumbral). The moon will be fully
eclipsed at 9:55 pm ( Sydney time) and the whole spectacle will end at 12:32 am 9th October. Total Lunar Eclipses are sometimes called ‘Blood Moon’ because the moon can turn red while it is eclipsed.
