I have been following the blog and my scopes so it’s fair to say I have some idea of what’s happening in the astro right now, but I also feel like I have no idea at all!
I’m a Libra/Taurus rising and right now I am trying to stay suave and cool on the outside, but inside my mind it’s like a theme park complete with fun mirrors distorting everything, a haunted house of old relationships, emotional and mental roller coasters and merry-go-rounds to boot, not to mention fireworks, nostalgia and all the anxiety. Like I’m meant to be having fun but am just overwhelmed and wondering if I can go home yet.
Is this a regular sign of the times? Does everyone have creepy fun park music playing (metaphorically) in their dreams of late?
I am reeling.
Can one still make major decisions during Mercury Retro and all the other kinetic astro energy? Do I buy the sofa, do I take the financially secure but artistically limiting job, can I do anything about the dragging out relationship drama with my also Libra ex partner?
Help! How do I navigate the merde while honoring myself and the astro climate? Is there a rainbow on the otherside of this storm?

Dear Libra Lady,
No i don’t have creepy fun park music playing in my psyche with this Mercury Retrograde – mine is more like the soundtrack from The Omen movies. But yes i get you.
The vibe is Saturn on the threshold of Scorpio/Sagittarius, amplified by the Mercury Retro. So nostalgia yes, but the poisoned barb kind but we KNOW the solution to Saturn – you work/scheme/plan/sort/clean/work again your way out of it. Without trying to numb, booze or carb the feelings away.
It sounds like you are letting it all flow through you, staying aware and doing it brilliantly. I was doing an existential in the dark stroll the other night and went past street drinks, full of people i vaguely know and i pulled up my hoodie ( Aquarius Rising, i know) and sort of sidled past trying to be invisible. But as i did, i heard this woman cackle drunkenly but it sounded SO fake – not like happy boozy laughing but more like “i’m trying to show i’m having fun here and i am right, RIGHT?” – her hand was gripping her wine glass so hard it looked like she was brandishing a blade in battle. The hot wired neurotic tension beneath the faux joie de vivre was intense.
My point? Staying real and feeling these awkward feeling IS the most brilliant strategy for Saturn back into Scorp. For anyone. But especially a Taurus Rising.
As for the other questions – no sofa with Mercury Retro unless it is somehow urgent and I suppose for Taurus Rising it might be. I am not sure about the job – that would take a consult to answer, it’s big. Sort the Ex-Libra a.s.a.p. before the zappy Mars-Pluto-Uranus crap of July. I’ve been not mentioning that because i know we are all zapped out.
Also, remember we are moving into The Existential – Saturn square Neptune till the end of 2016. That’s always kind of austere and poignant. GREAT for artists thought. Also true romance, music, perfume and boundary recreation.
Play some amazing music (not creepy fun park or hysterical hymns), plan like a mo-fo, devise a new hair/fashion vibe in honor of Venus in Leo and monitor your dreams for guidance because Mercury is still in aspect to Neptune until June 23.
We are all lucid dreamers now.
What does everyone else think?
