Two alerts dominate the sky this week. They supersede anything else I could say about right timing.
First, Mars in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries is now in effect. This aspect has been building the past week and becomes exact on Friday. With Mars and Uranus being high-energy planets opposing each other in the relationship signs (Aries and Libra), everything will be intensified and interpersonal issues will more likely flair up and come to a head.
Discordant Mars-Uranus aspects create more excitement, restlessness, impulsiveness, differences, and aggravations than normal. The status quo is upset with surprises, unexpected events, turbulent changes, and highly charged situations. It can be like lightning bolts coming out of nowhere.
Persons with a discordant Mars-Uranus aspect in their horoscope are typically bold, courageous, and freedom loving, but also prone to intolerance, tensions, brutal frankness, rash acts, accidents, and injuries.
With this aspect in effect, the possibilities increase around the world for outbursts, rage, strife, assaults, attacks, accidents, injuries, violence, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, extreme weather, damaging storms, electrical storms and blackouts, and battles, suicide bombings, and terrorist acts.
Because the vibrations suggest impulsiveness and discord, try to pause before you act and speak.
Life will probably go along as normal for you, but according to the principles of right timing, this is not the ideal time to be traveling, getting married, or starting a job, business or anything else of importance because whatever you start will have the qualities associated with Mars and Uranus being discordant.
And if you were born around the fifteenth of January, March, April, May, July, September, October, and November or have planets and points around twenty-five degrees of Aries, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces, be extra careful and vigilant.
On the plus side, Mars-Uranus aspects increase the possibilities for determination and leadership. They represent the fighter and soldier. They can generate extra energy to help you be more productive and achieving.
Second, next Monday Mercury turns retrograde. Recall that about five days before and after Mercury goes retrograde (in this case Monday, December 03) and then about five days before and after Mercury goes direct (Thursday, December 22) are most significant.
Unfortunately, many people believe that when Mercury is retrograde, everything goes wrong. But this is not the case. You just need to be more careful with your thinking, plans, and decisions.
In fact, Mercury retrograde periods are favorable for more inwardly-oriented activities such as reflection, reviewing, and meditation. During this period, allow more time for writing, editing, researching, and problem-solving.
What’s relevant for right timing is the fact that Mercury retrograde periods do create more “mess ups” and complications than usual because Mercury rules our thinking and communication.
The decisions you make and the plans you start with Mercury retrograde are more likely to take a twist later and be seen in a different light when unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” after Mercury goes direct.
So, do not assume anything. Double-check the fine print. Reconfirm details. Make sure all nuances are clarified.
