Mercury goes Direct, (giving the indication of it moving forwards) on Wednesday 4th April at 10.07 pm (NZ Time). Mercury has been Retrograde for the last 3 weeks. When a planet goes Retrograde it is an optical illusion indicating the planet in question is moving backwards. Mercury does this 3 to 4 times each year for a period of approximately 3 weeks each time. When Mercury is Retrograde all forms of communication are affected by the disjointed energy, this creates misunderstandings, loss of documents, machinery breakdowns, equipment malfunctions and unreliable transfers of information. Many little problems can arise – nothing outrageously bad but enough to be a bother or to create a hassle. So when the planet is again moving in Direct motion all those little niggles are corrected and the energy runs smooth again.
Mars has also been Retrograde, this has been in place since January. With Mars being in Virgo during this time it has been appropriate for us all to clean up the areas of chaos and untidiness, setting up the behind the scenes systems, putting the effort into getting everything right. Mars goes Direct on the 14th April 3.51 pm NZ Time.
With both of these planets again in Direct motion we will see good speed to our progress and an ease with our developments. Over the last month especially there has been a slowing down of development, with many distractions and diversions.
