Mercury retrograde and two exalted planets

     Venus is currently in Pisces, its sign of exaltation. The Sun will enter Aries, its sign of exaltation, in three days where it will join Jupiter. Mercury is retrograde and has entered Pisces. Mars and Saturn are exactly conjunct in Aquarius. Tomorrow the Moon will enter Taurus its sign of exaltation. All the planets, except Ketu, are tightly packed in the three consecutive signs of Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries. This gives an intensity of experience and events. It is mostly positive as there are a number of well-placed and exalted planets.

     The exceptions are Mars, Mercury, and Ketu. Mars and Saturn are conjunct, both malefic, and do not get along well. Saturn is in its own sign and will fare better than Mars. Ketu is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury, directedly opposite retrograde Mercury in Pisces, where Rahu is also transiting. This reactivates both ends of the Nodes, Rahu and Ketu, directly after the eclipse cycle. This will make this a particularly difficult Mercury retrograde centering mainly around issues indicated by Virgo, which are health, debts, and animals.

     Jupiter, ruler of Pisces, is in good dignity in Aries and will soon be joined by an exalted Sun. There is also an exalted Venus in Pisces, this will mitigate some of the negative effects retrograde Mercury would otherwise indicate in its transit through this sign. Rahu combined with retrograde Mercury will probably still bring difficulty with communication through technology and may result in a broken computer or lost phone. This will be an especially difficult month for those with a natal Moon in Pisces.

     To understand how these transits affect you an individual analysis is required. The interaction between your natal chart and the transits of the planets is always very individual and personal. Contact me for a reading at .
