Mercury Retrograde Ends, Full Moon Conjunct Neptune

Mercury Retrograde is over on Tuesday, Sept 5. The planet of Rational Thinking, Reasonable Decisions, Communications, etc., has been "backwards" since Aug 12. Now Mercury resumes normal forward motion, but things will not return to normal just yet. Mercury is conjunct Mars, exactly on Sept 3, and stays closely conjunct Mars for the next two weeks. This is due to Mercury not moving at its normal forward speed after completing retrograde, and therefore stays with Mars, which will continue to distort the significations of Mercury. The planet of Force, Haste, Conflict,overwhelms the planet of Reasonableness. Mercury is Communications & The Media; Mars will cause a lot of Argument, Anger, Forceful Messaging, etc., during the coming weeks.
Mercury finally gets away from Mars when it enters Virgo on Sept 26.
The Full Moon is on Wednesday, Sept 6, @ 19 deg Aquarius. This is the culmination of the energy of the lunar month of Bhadrapada, known for disasters. And of course there have been some this year, and the lunar month isn't over yet, until the next New Moon. This Full Moon is closely conjunct Neptune, planet of the Irrational, which is now @ 18 deg Aquarius. The energy can be quite chaotic, especially since Mars conjunct Mercury lies opposite in Leo. Therefore it is not a good week for scheduling anything of importance. On Tuesday, the day before the Full Moon, the Moon will line up with the Mars-Stationary Mercury -Eclipse Degree combination, indicating high likelihood for a Dramatic Event with Long-range Consequences.
