You’re no stranger to taking on a new persona from time to time, and it’s safe to say you’ve been through a few of them during these last two years. You’ve known for a while that you’re headed for another shift of the most personal kind, and you’ve been preparing for it with great diligence and focus. Your ruler, Mercury enters his retrograde shadow mid-week and dominates the aspects as well, which reflects the fact that you’re very busy and that new themes are showing up in your private life. These are important and will become the fabric of the upcoming retrograde cycle, so do your best to take them seriously, meaning take them to heart. Your social identity changes every time your persona shifts, and this one coming up is a major one.

Take the time to let your magic do its work.
