Horoscope: Mercury in retrograde a time for reflection

This week sees the end of the Venus/Uranus opposition, Mars in harmony with Saturn and Mercury turns retrograde.

Thursday, Sept. 23: Since Sept. 17, Venus has been in opposition to Saturn. Today she opposes Uranus. This is a deja vu of the fixed T-square we had in July when Venus was in Leo. If back in July, Venus in Leo’s dramatic displays of emotions aired out the tension, Venus in Scorpio will deal with the tension all by herself. Sometimes we need an implosion-like intensity to gain clarity on what really matters, and what needs to change. Happy birthday to "The Boss" – Bruce Springsteen turns 72 today.

Friday, Sept. 24: The moon in Taurus opposes Venus and is in the same place as Uranus. A surprise moves the future closer. Jim Henson, the puppeteer who gave us the Muppets, was born Sept. 24, 1936.

Saturday, Sept. 25: Mars in Libra gets a hand from Saturn in Aquarius, which most likely results in better health courtesy of necessity. For some, a longtime work issue is resolved. Canada’s eighth prime minister, Sir Robert Borden, wed Laura Bond on Sept. 25, 1889.

Sunday, Sept. 26: It’s a generous, sensuous, sexy Sunday with lively emotions supported by well-balanced Mars in Libra. It will be a day to remember with fondness. As we bask in the accomplishments of Montreal’s Leylah Fernandez at the recent U.S. Open tennis championships, today Serena Williams marks birthday #40.

Monday, Sept. 27: Today, Mercury goes retrograde. Mercury retrograde in Libra is a great time to reflect, reassess, re-evaluate, “re-” anything Libra stuff, mainly our relationships. We humans are social creatures. We can’t really live without others. The other is much more than a partner; it is a mirror. With the other we bounce back and forth ideas, feelings and experiences. The act of getting something outside of ourselves and putting it out in the open is what keeps us sane, because it provides us with useful feedback. If we didn’t relate to others, we would live delusional, catatonic lives. Mercury retrograde in Libra is our opportunity to do the Libra work, so we can have more honest, balanced and fulfilling relationships. Mercury is retrograde until Oct. 19. Happy birthday to Avril Lavigne, born Sept. 27, 1984.

Tuesday, Sept. 28: It’s the day of the third-quarter moon, with the sun in Libra and the moon in her home sign of Cancer. It’s a day for putting goals back on track, for generally reassessing progress, especially on family and relationship matters. It was 21 years ago today, on Sept. 28, 2000, that Pierre Elliott Trudeau died in Montreal.

Wednesday, Sept. 29: Even though today can be a bit stubborn and perhaps too sensitive, there’s charm and imagination with financial regards and the sun and Saturn in perfect harmony encouraging the building of more security. On Sept. 29, 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped nearly 800 points, following the collapse of Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual. It was the start of the great crash of 2008.

Next week, we see Venus, Jupiter, Mars and Pluto taking centre stage.
