It’s a very busy astrological week – Mercury is turning retrograde in the Twins, and Jupiter is starting a brand new cycle in the Ram!
Both of these important astral events have a lot to teach us.
Mercury retrograde in the talkative Twins asks us to pay attention to our inner talk – because right now, what you say to yourself is even more important than what you say to others.
Meanwhile, Jupiter’s arrival in the Ram is all about hope, optimism, and a fresh sense of adventure as this glorious planet journeys through the pioneering first sign of the zodiac.
You might know Mercury retrograde periods as times of confusion and misunderstandings when communication goes haywire – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
These regular sessions of backward motion are brilliant times to tap into what the messenger planet is reallytrying to tell us.
When Mercury is retrograde in the Twins, the most communicative sign of all, we can learn more about the incredible power of the spoken and written word.
Words are more meaningful during this transit – for better and for worse. Tha-t means it’s easier to hurt someone with your words, but it’s also easier to use words to heal, inspire and uplift.
Because your own self-talk matters so much to your success and happiness in life, now is the perfect time to ensure that you talk to yourself kindly, with love, and encouragement.
In that sense, Mercury retrograde in the Twins helps you to be your own best cheerleader!
It’s important to have this positive mindset, because with Jupiter moving into the Ram, there are adventures aplenty ahead – if we’re brave enough to take them.
This Jupiter transit inspires leadership, great courage, and a desire to push the boundaries way beyond our current comfort zones.
Set an example to those you care about by being willing to take some calculated risks. During this transit, we can manifest our own luck simply by being bold enough to try something.
Jupiter in the Ram isn’t afraid of failure – in fact, this energy reminds us that if you never fail, it means you’re not attempting enough.
Instead, this vibe is about reaching for the stars with confidence and optimism – and, should you fall short, using that as a learning curve to help you try again.
Recklessness can be an issue when Jupiter is in the Ram – and decision-making can be agonizing when Mercury retrogrades in the notoriously indecisive Twins.
Overall, however, these two amazing astrological transits have so much to offer – this should certainly be a week to remember!
What’s more, we’re heading into an extremely potent Lunar Eclipse in the Scorpion early next week.
This very special Eclipse is intense and powerful – and almost certainly transformational.

I’ll be exploring how this Eclipse may take us to some dark depths in pursuit of the light.
