Capricorn Full Moon, Mercury Begins Retrograde

The Full Moon is on Monday, Aug 7, @ 20 deg Capricorn. This marks the culmination of the energy of the Hindu lunar month Sravana, named for the nakshatra (lunar sign) Shravana, that the Full Moon falls in. Shravana is especially connected with Communication, Teaching, Upholding Cultural Traditions.
The Full Moon is Opposed by Mars, which is opposite, @ 17 deg Cancer. The influence from Mars, from the Moon's sign Cancer, indicates a high intensity day, with powerful, even overwhelming, emotions: careful of excess Reactivity.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Saturday, August 12, @ 17 deg Leo. Mercury significations of Rational Thinking, Communications, etc., will be challenged during the next three weeks. Mercury will "back up" in Leo until Sept 5, when it ends its retrograde period @ 4 deg Leo.
Neptune is opposite to Mercury as the retrograde period begins. Neptune is on the other side of the zodiac, at 19 deg Aquarius. The planet of Dreams, Imagination, and the Irrational, opposes the already disadvantaged planet of the Rational Mind. Thus the usual problems of Misunderstandings and Mistakes typical of retrograde Mercury will be even more the case.
