From March 18th through March 24th, we begin an important week, as Mercury hovers at 16 and 17 Aries before turning retrograde on Thursday the 22nd. Mercury provides information and brings several aspects and issues of the True Self into focus. These key elements of the Self are those that will be important during this Mercury retrograde.
Monday evening Mercury connects with Venus at 16 Aries and becomes a beautiful sky scape within the evening hours to see these two planets so close together as they journey together during this week. Mercury brings information to Venus ruling love, money and well-being, which becomes the focus of issues through the retrograde.
On Tuesday, Sun shifts into Aries to shine the light onto the Aries focus and heralds in the Equinox. Aries rules the True Self and the ability to bring that Self into visibility. With both Sun and Mercury in Aries, the information and spotlight provide an important perspective as well as having Venus bring in solutions to emphasize the expression and clarity of the True Self.
Thursday evening Mercury reaches 17 Aries, pauses and turns retrograde at 5:19 pm PDT / 8:19 pm EDT. It is at this point known as Mercury retrograde. However, it is actually where our orbit begins to go faster, and our mental thoughts that we need for comprehension of situations, ruled by Mercury, have a tough time keeping up. The Sun begins to widen the distance between us and Mercury, which creates the challenges of this phenomena.

Universal Year of 2018
2018 is an ELEVEN / TWO universal year which takes the beginning of our new cycle and brings the focus of this New Self into connection with others. We have the choice of paths with the ELEVEN/TWO, which separates the wheat from the chaff. Essentially the ELEVEN brings in the spiritual elements of Divine guidance and utilizing the direction in taking action to move forward. The TWO brings in the connections that keep us stagnant and in old ways, moving through the cycles of non-improvement and non-growth. The inability to move beyond the non-growth circumstances of the TWO becomes the focus throughout 2018, while the opportunity of the ELEVEN becomes the highlight of the year. To take responsibility, through the transparency of action, and embracing accountability is the continual opportunity provided throughout the year. At any time, we can step outside the old cycle and rise up to the ELEVEN.
In 2018, many options will be given to rise up to the ELEVEN to move beyond the “old” to accept a new path. In fact, the ELEVEN is as inherent within the circumstances as is the TWO. The ELEVEN path of moving from Point A to Point B requires ethics of taking responsibility, transparency of motives, and accountability of intentions. The path of non-growth cycles provides the illusion of movement. Yet, these cycles are the typical relationship scenario with one’s self and in our interactions with others; complaining, without taking responsibility to look for or take action to implement change, options and solutions. In short, the difference of the TWO and the ELEVEN is “action” as actions speak our true intentions.
