Astro Frequency

by Ralfee Finn November 1, 2006

It’s a “two steps forward, one step back, and then a giant leap into the future” kinda week as the final Mercury Retrograde phase of the year hastens a review of 2006 and assists in sorting out what’s a good idea to leave behind and what’s essential to take with into 2007. But—and this is a big but—this is not your mother’s Mercury Retrograde, and it’s not my mother’s either. This Retrograde, which began on October 28th and ends of November 17th, is in a class all its own—a new hybrid that can’t slow down long enough to take a good look at the details of just about anything. Don’t be surprised if an urgent need to push forward at almost any cost drives a need to leave the past in the dust. Just be aware, while this clash between the past and the future isn’t necessarily negative, handling the intensity of the present is going to take stamina and a great deal of patience.

Normal retrogrades are always about revisiting what was, and even though retrogrades are often fraught with hassles, delays, and teeth gnashing snafus, they are also often the only time life slows down long enough to reexamine recent choices. Yes, it’s true, retrogrades are crushing to communication, computers, and all things related to language, yet retrogrades are also beneficial to editing, tweaking, and fine-tuning what’s already in motion.

But Uranus sponsors our current Retrograde, and Uranus isn’t particularly interested in the details. It’s also not fascinated with the past. And what it desires most is revolution. Uranus is currently trining Mars, the Sun, and Venus, all traveling close together in Scorpio. As Uranus trines Mars, the need to move and to move quickly could lead to hasty decisions. When possible take your time. Uranus trine the Sun supports individual radical acts of independence from whatever enslaves—people, work, attitudes, or addictions. Uranus trine Venus leans directly toward fast love affairs that ignite instantaneously and burn out a moment later. What’s always significant about Uranus interactions is their creative signature. All three trines, Mars, the Sun, and Venus support creativity in a variety of forms—from attitudes to paint colors.

Again, during a normal retrograde, simple tasks tend to turn into monumental efforts and regular routines transform into quagmires of frustration. And while some of that wisdom may apply to the current retrograde, the Uranian push toward the future is certain to override retrograde caution—which may not be a bad thing.

During the coming weeks don’t be afraid to break the Retrograde Rules. I know that sounds like heresy, but resisting Uranus will take more energy than riding its tide. Give yourself lots of latitude, plenty of room for mistakes, and when possible extend that same generosity and understanding to all your relations. It’s gonna be a wild ride for everyone.

If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that, too.

Aries March 21-April 19

It won’t be easy containing your intensity—inside or out—so rather than denying the buzz, use it. Transform this energy into passion, and then channel it into areas of your life that need authentic inspiration.

Taurus April 20-May 20

Surprising developments with significant others challenge your need for consistent behavior. Rather than insist on certainty, make every effort to stay flexible, and you’ll handle the unexpected with ease.

Gemini May 21-June 21

I’m not sure how you’re going to manage the workload, either. But I am sure you will be able to organize a reasonable game plan. Just try to be moderate and don’t take on more than you can accomplish.

Cancer June 22-July 22

Too much is changing to quickly for you to get under the covers—there’s barely time to process the latest development. So breathe, deeply, and soothe your anxiety with knowing that eventually you will be able to rest.

Leo July 23-August 22

Acknowledge your need for rest, but also don’t expect that need to be satisfied anytime soon—you’re in transition, and no where near the end of this phase. Set a realistic pace, and then utilize this time as best you can.

Virgo August 23-September 22

Be willing to be intimate and you’ll encourage a new level of communication with lovers, friends, and family. You don’t have to tell every secret—you just have to be authentic.

Libra September 23-October 22

You’re working on establishing and maintaining the equilibrium between caution and optimism, particularly when it comes to finances. Here’s some help—avoid what’s expedient and concentrate instead on the big picture.

Scorpio October 23-November 21

Sometimes too much attention can be unnerving, but at the moment, you not only can’t escape it—you also deserve it. So rather than shy away from the spotlight, take a gracious bow.

Sagittarius November 22-December 21

My head is exploding just from thinking about what’s going on in your head. It isn’t possible to solve every problem simultaneously, so prioritize your goals, and don’t try to do everything at once.

Capricorn December 22-January 19

Unusual demands on your time and energy are taking a toll and raising your stress level, which is why you’re tempted to say more than you want to. There’s only one solution—get some rest.

Aquarius January 20-February 18

It won’t be possible to say, “yes” to everything, so resist the temptation to overextend and instead, focus on the one or two or even three things you know you can do well.

Pisces February 19-March 20

Be honest with yourself and others, even if that means reacting in the moment and risking “wrong” behavior. Rather than apologizing for what you feel, own your attitude, and if it needs a tweak, you’ll do the necessary work.

    I think that what you typed made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?

    I am not suggesting your information is not solid., however suppose you
    added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean About Athene is a
    little plain. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write post titles to get people to open the links.

    You might add a related video or a picture or two
    to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
