I’m a wordy person. In fact, the number-one reason that I don’t believe in whole sign houses is because that system of house division would put my third-house sun into the fourth house. Anyone who knows me also knows how ridiculous that would be.
Anyway, transiting Mercury will conjoin my ascendant in just a few minutes from now. Because of Mercury’s upcoming retrograde cycle, the planet will remain in my first house through November 23.
I’m actually looking forward to the transit — Mercury retrograde and all! It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like my normal, loquacious self. Even with all this free time I’ve had since the COVID-19 lockdowns began, I haven’t had the urge to write. If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, I’ve attributed my writer’s block to the Capricorn stellium that has defined 2020 so far. Much of the retrograde action of the past few months has been occurring in my third house of communication, so it makes sense that I haven’t had the urge to have my voice heard far and wide.
But that’s all changing quite rapidly. Yesterday, I published a post claiming that I feel lighter — as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Today, I feel even more eager to not only get out and about, but also to be heard. Astrologically, it makes a lot of sense.
Hopefully, my loquaciousness won’t be muted when Mercury goes retrograde in October. I should be okay because the sun will also be transiting my first house by that time, providing me with the confidence I need to shout my opinions from the rooftops.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go read the dictionary from front to back. Oh, who am I kidding? Even without Mercury transiting my first house, that’s the sort of thing I do for fun, anyway.
