Mercury is direct on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 and by the time it reaches its shadow position on September 19 many of the communication issues of the last few weeks begin to see headway. With the Full Moon on Wednesday, September 6, falling near Neptune, this might be a great week to plan some time off from your newly focused schedule and go near the water, listen to some music, see a play or paint a wall! It is important to keep things in balance during times of stress. Often when Mercury begins its direct motion, you hear from people you haven’t heard from for a while, or, you contact them. With this very important Mercury direct on the eclipse degree, it may be that people show up from a long time ago — perhaps even back to 1998 or even 1979! Another way this plays out is that a business you might have started, wanted to start, or thought about starting during those years may present a window of opportunity allowing you to try again.
Mercury going direct is about taking classes, learning new skills, even if there is no purpose but your personal interest. This changes your day to day patterns that have, perhaps, blocked your creativity and opens up new brain patterns that also bring in new types of people — for both personal as well as professional relationships. Perhaps you need to upgrade equipment, software, or systems. This is a perfect time to start thinking how to best improve your quality of life. And, of course, getting those budgets down for the rest of the year is key for planning some of the big opportunities opening up in 2018. Those who prepare will be ready when the moment finds them.
