Astrology of the Day – The Mystic Rectangle and Mercury Retrograde - Monday 4th December 2017


The Moon begins today as yesterday in the sign of Gemini. Our minds will be racing at stresses and worries that the day before brought, and I guarantee you that something had been bothering you. Not only was there a full Moon squared to chaotic Neptune but Mercury stood still during Sunday and as we start the day it is now starting to reverse retrograde. A problem from the past or inherent from something undermining our position will have made itself aware to you. Now you have something extra to contend with. We will need all the powers of flexibility and adaptation now, and luckily the Gemini Moon affords this to us.

Now early on the Moon makes an inconjunct to Pluto, and we realise that we have to adjust our position in the face of something powerful or immovable. Pluto will not be budged or shifted, and we must be the ones to adapt now. There are hurts to endure for sure and the Moon's square to Chiron exposes us to frailties and inadequacies that we have suffered since we were little. Life is an ongoing journey where the deficiencies of our soul is constantly tested, and the contacts to Chiron are a constant reminder of the lessons we should have learned in our formative years.

Our quest is to change, and we can change. The Moon now enters into four more connections within a couple of hours, sextile to Uranus, trine to Mars (those two still opposite each other) and opposite to Saturn and the newly retrograde Mercury still adjusting to moving in the opposite direction. Together these planets form what we in Astrology circles call a “Mystic Rectangle”. The 5 planets here create a rectangle formed from two 60 degree sextiles namely Uranus to Moon and Mars to Mercury/Saturn. There are also two 120 degree trines operating here, with Moon to Mars and Uranus to Mercury Saturn.

These outside links forming the rectangle shape are all easy going connections, on on the outside we may seem relaxed, happy and in a good mood. These are progressive connections providing opportunities to move forwards and update our lives. That is all well and good, but inside the rectangle are two crossed oppositions, Mars to Uranus and as I mentioned earlier Moon to Mercury/Saturn. Beneath the surface are worries, stresses, challenges, things bothering us that we dare not let out to the world. Mars to Uranus is severe tension to buck the trend and do your own thing. Moon opposition to Mercury and Saturn show the emotional worries and responsibilities that we must take on our shoulders. There is a review process going on too within this complex multi planetary aspect. Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius now until 23rd December. If you know your Ascendant sign then Mercury Retrograde will affect you thus...

Aries – A review of things you learnt, believe in, plan to publish, how you travel and deal with matters of culture and diversity, a review of legal proceedings and issues concerning your partner's brothers and sisters.

At the end of the day the Moon slips for a couple of hours into its home sign of Cancer and we can be safe with our family, friends and loved ones. We are in stressful times, and we will require home comforts of our own little circle of the ones we trust, and the support of our closest friends...
