Mercury Direct: May 3, 2017 – Unusual Time – Virgo & Gemini

Typically, I’m champing on the bit when Mercury is retrograde. I want to get the show on the road! Not so, this time. This is because Mercury will be so well aspected over the next three weeks.  

The planet will be in Aries, conjunct Uranus. Both planets will be tightly trined by Saturn in Sagittarius. This is a great time for almost any mental experimentation.

For example, I love the new writers on the blog. It’s fresh. It’s exciting. It’s creating opportunities, not just for the writers but for the readers who are treated to a fresh perspective.

This is a supremely good time to change your mind or to shake off old mindsets that retard your progress.  Virgo and Gemini are particularly energized.

If you feel your mind wanting to open…go with it. Try it! Think new thoughts and while you’re at it, make them BIG!

  4. Cool:) I’m thinking really big! And the cool thing is that these thoughts are manifesting super fast. I feel like something I’ve been unconsciously working on my whole life has finally sprouted.

  6. Thank you Elsa! As always youre our sherpa to the stars. I have virgo rising and have finally broken through my resistance to mentally accepting and not eating dairy containing foods.

Its ok though because ive got 80 lbs to lose and i feel like a million bucks. For the first time my stomach isnt churning all day. I feel fine. And my appetite which was bottomless is now normal. I thank The Universe and Mercury, the cosmic opening in my consciousness has changed my life.

  7. Saturn, Node, Venus, Moon, and even Mercury in mutual reception are all jazzed up for this and feeling the May vibes! I’ve already been energized because of all that will be *off* my docket for a fresh start. Next week alone is going to be SUCH a relief. ?? Saturn in Sag has been active, sure, but oh so challenging.
