« When Mercury, Venus, and Mars Go Retrograde, What Does It Mean and How Are They Related To Past and Future Retrogrades? | Main | Mercury Retrograde in Virgo in August-September 2010, Pt. 2 - What It Means For Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces »



Hello Robert - Very informative as always. This Merc Rx cycle is seemingly rather active for me. It starts conjunct my natal Pluto and IC, passes over my Venus and Pallas and moves forward conjunct my Jupiter...all of this in the 3rd house. More interestingly the inferior conjuntion (on 9/4...i think) is conjunct my Venus while transiting Venus is conjunct my natal Sun (27 Libra)...AND in my progressed chart I have Venus conjunct Venus in the 3rd house Libra. All of this is leaving me VERY CURIOUS! Have any thoughts on what to tune into here? Namaste...


Synching with the dream, in spite of the hate machine.

Jane Axtell

Thank you for this article and especially for the thought "Beginning the Adventure Despite the Inadequacies." That is very much my theme for now.

Neptune will cross my natal 17 Virgo Neptune in the 12th and I find health and the mysterious "why am I here" all entangled now. Over the last few days I have realized that my first plans to develop an income again after serious and extended illness held serious political and soul traps for others. What to do?

I am probably not strong enough to take up the long abandoned work on civilization theory, and yet even considering it has me stronger in mind and body. So thanks for the encouragement. I will not hold you responsible for whatever problems I may encounter.

If this is mine to do and do now a way will open although it may be rusty and need a push.

Kit Walker

ahh my Saturn return is Sept 17. (10/4/51)
any suggestions?
thank you SO much Robert, your insights are very helpful.
i know no astrologer that goes into the nuances (like the septiles) like you. much appreciated.

Donna Grey

Unbleivable for me as this descrbes to a 'T' my comparative lifestyle study I am about to embark on September 3rd !!!! lols ! I have bought a camper van and a camper trailer and I am traveling Oz as a single mummy of a 2 yr and 5 yr old comparing 2 lifestyles for parenting purposes ! I was stunned when I read this report as it literally describes everything I have been planning in the last 6 mths and now I am down to my last week in my 3bd rental home having sold and given 'ALL' of our furniture, most possessions and kids toys ~ and my cousin sends me this !


oh my Donna Grey, you are on the road. Eat pray love. Have you seen the movie Up? Can't wait to read your book. May the force be with you.


Hi Sherry, a third house question for you since you must be the master. Is your local environment where you are most effective or comfortable working? Something I once read somewhere, (may the plagerism god forgive me cuz I don't remember where) about a 3rd house Pallas.


Hi Sherry - It would seem that getting a new look at Venusian qualities you may or may not have suspected is your focus these next few months. Not sure how you could have Prog Venus conjunct Natal Venus unless it was RX at birth and went direct at some point between then and now. Venus on your Sun creates a new way of Venus expressing your Light/Life. To sum up what you said, the rulers of your Gemini, Leo, and Virgo sectors just conjuncted your ruler of your Taurus and Libra sectors that sets insights into motion for the next 4 months.

Hi caliban - Yes, the atmospheres are very volatile and sometimes deliberately misleading. As for your question of Sherry, much would depend on how the 3rd house planets aspect the ruler of the 6th, or a planet in the 6th.

Hi Jane Axtell - You're most welcome. I'm sure you meant a transit over your natal Neptune at 17 Virgo, which should bring light and insights into that way you have of relating to collective consciousness. Glad you paused if something would have created negative karmic traps for others. Here sometimes we have a duty to serve the greater good, regardless of what apparent damage it does to those who are unconscious, or consciously destructive. Most of the political world is a cesspool. But it's always good to examine possible karmic kickbacks ahead of time. I would think that work on "civilization theory" could be a good thing if it holds some hope for a better way in the future. As for holding me responsible for anything, well, I tend to be response-able most of the time if there is any positive response able to be done.;-) But by all means, do whatever you need to do to make the world a better place!

Hi Kit Walker - Just finished my own over the past 2 years, so.... First, go into the archives and read what I wrote about the Saturn return. Then read the articles I've done about Saturn transiting a natal planet, in your case the Sun and your Mercury. It's the end of a long cycle of self-definition that began back around 1980-81. This is a time to conserve energy, figure out what works and does not work for you, become a student again, and practice mental-verbal discipline. This is where you can find your long range purpose that you could embrace the rest of your life, so go slow, balance what needs balancing while leaping into the new possibilities shown the past 3 months, and remember that you've really already begun the long term transformative process. It began when Mars and then Venus crossed your Sun. By next March-April many things will surface in your life showing you the next steps. And of course you're most welcome.

Hi Donna Grey - I do get it right occasionally!;-) Enjoy your "walkabout," as it can provide you insights outside of your "normal" ego-structured assumptions. I'm sure your adventure will open not only your eyes, but as it has been said, it will no doubt be an excellent learning experience for your children (if difficult at times, as all disruptions of routines are for young children, at least for a little while.) "Happy trails, to you, until we meet again...."


Hi Robert & Caliban...thanks for the thoughts. my progressed chart prog. venus is conjunct my natal sun...transiting venus is also conjunct my natal sun (27 lib).

Caliban - LOTS of truth in your statement about Pallas. The answer is yes and no...ugh.... :)
