Yesterday's conjunction between the Sun and Mercury Retrograde had a great deal more impact than I would have expected -- but then, this entire Mercury Retrograde time (since August 20) has seemed to have greater effect than usual. Perhaps because we already don't really know which way we're going, or how to define reality, that adding a Retrograde Mercury can have the effect of tipping us even further out of balance.
Assuming that this occurs with ultimately positive intention, we can look at yesterday's Mercury-Sun alignment and consider how it may have represented a reversal of sorts, a throw-back to another way of being, either from this life or another lifetime.
And perhaps it was especially strong for me because it was exactly conjunct my Virgo Moon... Anyone else with natal planets at 11 degrees Virgo, who also felt a significant impact from the planetary alignment on Friday (September 3)?
