Thursday’s New Moon Eclipse follows Mercury turning retrograde today

So what does it all mean? I suggest that anyone who has natal planets at or around 9-10° of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces), be aware of and learn to flow with the tendency of this entire year, which is dissolving (Neptune) old certainties (Saturn) and other kinds of stuck structures (Saturn) and situations. The New Moon Eclipse will both highlight and exaggerate this tension between Saturn (form) and Neptune (void) while closely attending to behind-the-scenes details. This humble Virgo service, when folded within the loving flow of Neptune in Pisces, turns the kaleidoscope in precise, measured ways, to display continuously emerging light-filled vistas.

Ahem, that would be me! — with my natal Saturn at 7° Gemini.

What am I referring to? The T-cross in mutable signs involving Saturn at 10° Sagittarius, Neptune at 10° Pisces, and, now finally waning at 14°, Mars in Sagittarius. This square between Truth and Love, Sagittarius and Pisces, is highlighted, and turned into a mutable T-cross by the placement of Sun/Moon at 9°21 Virgo, within three degrees of the north node. Virgo: Pay attention to specifics, logistics, details. Realize it’s all working out (Saturn)t within a context of continuous dissolution (Neptune) of whatever you used to take for granted (Saturn) and that instead requires utmost faith in the mysterious workings of the universe (Neptune). 

Case in point, again, me: in the middle of complex logistics for upcoming five-week road trip . . . plus, attempting to finalize these details during three week Mercury retrograde period starting today that, as usual, may indicate snafus in communication and transportation.
