The study of astrology becomes really interesting when we have several significant astrological factors happening at one time. The period we are right now is one of those times. Here’s what is happening:
Mercury is in retrograde, which began on November 23, 2011 and will continue that way for two more weeks.
We had a Solar eclipse on November 24th and will have a Lunar eclipse on December 10th.
Mars is in its ‘shadow’ period.
There will be the Inferior conjunction between the Sun and Mercury on December 4th.
