Mars and Mercury Direct * Event Timing thru 2018 * Auspicious Jupiter-Neptune Trine * Harmoniously Aspected Pisces Full Moon * More! Listen to This Week in Astrology now -- free! Mars and Mercury turn direct in the second half of August. This finally clears the deck for significant new beginnings after the September 9 New Moon. We also have a shiningly auspicious Jupiter-Neptune trine, the Sun entering Virgo, a harmoniously aspected Pisces Full Moon and nine new aspect patterns! Our special feature is "Event Timing for the Rest of 2018." The second half of 2018 is tricky for those hoping to start a significant new project or make a major purchase. An unusually high concentration of retrograde personal planets makes this period unusually challenging for new beginnings. I explain basic astrological timing principles as they show the best initiation windows for the rest of the year!
