The biggest news is that Mercury has just recently stationed direct, and Neptune is trining Jupiter. Although we still have six planets still in retrograde, so we aren't out of the water just yet.
I say water because it's been raining quite alot lately here where i am located, which is in the east central part of Canada of Ontario, hopefully it moves further to the North and West Coast where it is needed.
Whether this is due (no pun intended) to the moon being in Pisces the fish or Aquarius the water bearer, is debatable. Either way both these signs deal with water contained or not.
Having Neptune here will intensify these energies in ephemereal ways. Bringing relief or a need due to a lack there of.
As the trine to Jupiter shows us where we could improve our vision to see things in a clearer way, metaphysically, emotionally and spiritually.
If we have been wearing rose coloured glasses, we may finally be able to take them off to see things for how they really could be or really are. Verses how we may have believed them to be.
Connections with others may become more prominent at this time, since Aquarius deals with the collective. This could very well reveal more nostalgia with those involving a similar mindset to ourselves. With the sun still in Leo in both east and western, tropical and sidereal. Our own unique path will be forged regardless if others follow us or not.
Although this will very often be likely.
Since those who lead usually carve out new paths that have never been seen before by others and tends to attract a following.
Living in the age that we do, this is the only seeming way forward. To take what we have been given as far as what we have at our disposal, and to use it to our advantage in ways that we have never thought of in the past.
Although with so many planets still retrograde, these ideas could just be sitting in the backs of our heads for now. Until we decide which path or paths to make our priority or at least which ones look like the most advantageous.
With 7 planets also in retrograde, the main theme here is tying up loose ends. As we have three of these planets in the constellation of Capricorn in the tropical zodiac. Those including Saturn, Pluto and Mars. Issues needing resolved revolving changes with positions of authority, like the Government dealing with things like taxes and human rights, as we can see with ICE addressing human trafficking in the U.S and in Canada with Trudeau standing up for human rights which for some reason is somehow in conflict the current leader of Saudi Arabia’s morals.
Prior to the Eclipse we have a lovely kite formation with the moon opposing Saturn while it is also sextiling Neptune and Jupiter. Signaling an ease when dealing with these matters leading up to it.
With resolution to matters prompted swiftly when done in a systematic way.
Mostly because in Sidereal astrology Jupiter is in Libra, the sign of justice and equilibrium. So that if things aren’t in balance the way they should be, they soon will.
