Aries Sun 21° in House 3
2:08 AM EDT
Themes: Self-empowerment, bullish, control, taking advice, unexpected new events, change and transformation, opportunity for growth, higher law, higher learning, communication, cleansing, harmony, hostilities, corruption, and boundaries.
We’re now experiencing an Aries Sun / Libra Moon time. Is all fair in love and war? We’ll definitely find out; because we’re looking into the fairness of ours and other’s actions during the next 29 days…We’re not going to move away from the influences of Oshun for a good moment.
Welcome to the Libra-Oshun Full Moon of April, ruler of house 7 and archetype of Orisa Oshun and planet Venus. This Libra Full Moon resides in house 9, the house of higher law, and learning. This moon will alert our collective consciousness to express a need for personal, spiritual, and emotional clearing and cleansing, and to bring into existence both balance and harmony… This moon time will release more of our stored up hostilities… If we are mindful of the duality in nature of this Libra moon, both disruptive, and harmonizing we can decide how best we would like to work with these lunar vibrations…
This is our time to set boundaries and to honor the laws that govern those boundaries. This is that moon time which requires us to re-affirm our personal or group’s authority, to regain confidence, and self-worth.

The 2nd Mercury Retrograde 2017 lasts from April 9 to May 3 and travels from 4º Taurus back to 24° Aries. Even though Mercury retrograde starts in the beginning of Taurus, the whole retrograde period has a fiery Aries theme as Mercury will spend half the period in Aries and will ignite heroic themes of courage and rescue. This is because the major star being activated will the ‘damsel in distress’ star Mirach in princess Andromeda’s girdle.
Perseus, rescuer of the princess is an Aries archetype in that he is heroic and brave. In the Greek myth Andromeda’s father agreed to sacrifice his daughter to Poseidon in order to save his kingdom. (What is it with these Neptunian gods always demanding child sacrifice?!) It looks like this Mercury Retrograde will start off extremely challenging with Venus retrograde square Saturn. Saturn is on a poisonous star too. Etamin in the right eye of Draco the Dragon is associated with the scattering of poison. (In modern days this could even be chemical weapons.)
If that wasn’t enough, there is a cardinal T-square with Jupiter retrograde (Religious zealots) square Pluto (Globalists) square a Sun/Eris/Uranus stellium. (Persephone child abduction theme overlaps child sacrifice theme.). Mars is conjunct Ceres (The rape of mother earth and pagan principles.) in a decan hotspot that contains stars Algol (Medusa’s head) and Capulus the slayer.
When this Andromeda Mercury goes retrograde then, we have an opportunity to do in-depth research in this very volatile area that it travels through. Facing the disturbing topics of child sacrifice and abduction is unavoidable. All news and alternative media will become super-dramatic, and the themes mentioned in this post should play out, whether they are truthful or not! Mercury is one of three visible planets that are retrograde at this time which makes it even more challenging. (At least until Venus turns direct on April 15.).
March 27 ~ Mercury Pre-Shadow Period starts at 24° Aries.
April 9 ~ Mercury Retrograde at 4° Taurus.(11.14 pm UT.)
May 3 ~ Mercury Direct at 24° Aries. (4.22 pm UT.)
May 19 ~ Post-Shadow ends at 4° Taurus
RAGING BULLS. In the personal realm, those touched by this retrograde will either talk until the cows come home or be very reticent. Much depends on how confident they are feeling. The shy ones might become surprisingly chatty after a few glasses of wine. Words could get them into trouble.. a lot. Mercury in this decan create terrible gossip, and bring out tactless behavior. There are rousing speeches however, but a need to temper getting carried away. Overconfidence leads to moving towards Taurus decan 1’s dictatorship potentials. It will be hard to contain political rants and protests. Having said all that, Mercury is very powerful here in terms of its dignity as it rules this decan in the Chaldean system. This position, even retrograde, can assist merchants, orators, singers and writers. Use this time to prepare for an important business meeting, interview or public performance.
Midway through the Mercury retrograde 2017 cycle opens a window of wonderfulness where we can stand in the eye of the hurricane but miraculously come out in one piece. This way you can avoid the vacillation generally of Mirach but also gain its more positive attributes mentioned below. You can make use of the special Sun exact conjunct Mercury moment (Cazimi in traditional astrology). Either send a romantic message that really hits the mark or pitch an artistic idea. Try as close to these times as you can. Apr 19: 11.03pm PDT. Apr 20: 2.00am EDT, 7.03am UT, 8.03am CEST, 4.03pm AEST. (Sorry I know they are quite impractical for those in the US, Cazimi lasts about 3 hours either side of the hour.)
Mirach is found in the girdle of Andromeda. Despite the ‘peculiar events’ driven by Mercury on this star, it is generally extremely fortunate “portending renown and good luck in matrimony.”  The myth has Princess Andromeda chained to a rock as a sacrifice to Cepheus the sea monster. All to appease an offended Neptune! It all ends well however, as Andromeda was rescued by brave Perseus whom she married. Robson echoes the myth saying Mirach “gives personal beauty, a brilliant mind, a love of home, great devotion, beneficence, forgiveness, love, overcoming by kindness, renown, and good fortune in marriage.” The Ebertins emphasize a creative side saying Mirach endows “Many interests, tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company. These people have a stimulating effect on others, they make friends easily and are helped on in life by others.” 
BOUNTY HUNTERS: Small words make big impressions during this time! Those touched by this part of the retrograde journey are aided in oratory and giving a persuasive sales pitch. The mind will be brilliant too in a way that weaves many different ideas into one cohesive ideology. Mercury has no dignity here so the gift during this time is its power of persuasion, rather than innate genius. However those with genuine talent will have the ability to transmit their message with great emotional punch. This almost guarantees that their ideology or products will reach a large audience. Mercury Aries 3 can be as seductive as it is highly critical. At its most negative it can inflict emotional abuse on others in the form of mental cruelty. Verbal attacks can feel like one is being machine-gunned with words. On the positive side Mercury here can use words to heal and uplift also. You can use this period to sweet-talk lovers with the most heartwarming poetry. Words are a big turn on!
Mercury direct is a far more positive chart! The Yod to Jupiter is interesting in that it could be used for positive, spiritual transformation. The Sun/Neptune midpoint between an earthy Taurus the moisture of Pisces could bring some healing… mud. Mercury itself joins hands with rebellious, independent Uranus to bring, freedom of speech? With ever increasing censorship on alternative media we can only hope.
There is a nice balance from Saturn by trine to this Mercury direct. What was Saturn’s Draco poison in the Mercury Retrograde chart could be made into anti-venom perhaps? During this Aries/Taurus Mercury Retrograde we learn how transmute offensive words and turn their energy around for defense, much like in martial arts.
Feeling the chaos energy? It has been slowly building and on this Gemini Super Duper Full Moon tonight I am awake and in insomniac mode as news of Aleppo’s fall and Syria’s liberation, accusations of Russia interfering in the U.S. election to plant Trump for its own benefits run rife and a looming December 19 Electoral College Vote keeps Americans and others on the edge of their seats.
The current chaos is courtesy of the long-running “reality show” of the planets. Uranus and Jupiter opposing each other from Aries/Libra and PLUTO too.

Palms up by Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Palmistry is a prehistoric divination because we have had our hands long before any written language, occult symbols or symbolic languages such as runes and because of that, diviners have a full and unwritten past. The more modern roots of palmistry came through India and also the Chinese book I Ching or at least that is what is said, I am sure many places on earth have practiced the art. Its also endured and survived the skeptics.
I have had my palm read three times in my life, but the last one was the best, I was around 37 years old, already having been an astrologer for twenty years and a symbolist, so I understood the readings and descriptions by the palmist. The last palmist was an elderly gentleman around 85 years old and still reading palms, he took my hands and began to draw on them with his red marker while he was reading them. He wore very thick glasses and I thought it was because his eyesight was bad that he used the marker, but apparently Palmists do that.

According to J. B. Friedrich, “Symbolik der Natur” the Sea Shell, on account of its being a product of the Sea, or of the all-generating moisture; and much more probably from its shape, is an emblem of woman herself. Being one of the great emblems of productive Nature, or of life and light, and opposed to barrenness, winter or negation, the sea shell was a charm against evil. The gypsies have retained it as a powerful agent for “luck” showing to what a degree they are still influenced by the early symbolism which effectively formed not one but many mythologies. Among the Hungarian Gypsies the virtue or magical power of a sea shell is in proportion to the degree of resemblance of which it possesses.

A short excerpt from Michelle’s bio on her website:
Intuition is a funny thing. Many families, schools lack methods in teaching a kid to trust their inner knowing and or the differences in how our senses work and provide this information. My acute intuitive skills started in early childhood, around the age of five. As a child, I was able to walk into a room and sense people’s feelings and thought processes. To me this was normal. Everyone can do this right? Some call it “déjà vu”. For me it was simply overwhelming. No one teaches a child how to handle knowing that your parents are going to get a divorce before they got one or that a family friend is a molester. Hearing or sensing things that felt hurtful or threatening created a scenario that caused me to learn how to dim my senses, i.e. a lamp switch. What people with high intuitive senses find out is that doing this seldom works. So instead I learned how to verify information. Several near death experiences proved to me that something far bigger than myself could literally stop cars and change the direction of my life. I would hear, see and feel the energy around me that would guide me, whether into being awarded $10M sales contracts or to preventing me from walking into harmful situations. My Soul longed for information. Many mentors now peers provided this. Ask and you will receive…
My skill set is as a clairaudient, clairvoyant, clairsentient and Energetic Practitioner allow me to access and work with the energetic information we call “Soul Fragments”. Working with an individual’s “Innate Spirit” or their Being back to origin is my gift.
Using such resources, I have successfully provided my clients with a variety of services and assistances. Many say that I have assisted them to find greater happiness, personal health, clear direction, financial abundance and increased knowledge of themselves, others and their life purpose on Earth.
