On a personal level when planets, particularly Mercury goes retrograde we must look into our spiritual inventory. This is a time when major life events or a particular issue you have been working on in this lifetime will surface for you to take a good look at and learn from.
Mercury will go retrograde hovering very close to Mars around the end of the month. Mercury as it slows down in motion before it reverses is intensified by the forcefulness of Mars. This will bring forth and magnify everything connected with both these two energies.
"If you are coming from a place of a compassionate heart then you will have a feeling of peace, love and contentment. You will attract others with the same sense of happiness in their life. Compassion comes from a place of understanding." -- Joni Patry, from her soon to be published book, Awaken To The Truth
