Read the bigger write-up about Mercury in Aries right here or by clicking the graphic.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Expansive Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mercury in Taurus Retrograde (Rx) on DrStandley.com

Mercury in Aries is squaring (challenging) your 10th house public life. This house also rules fame, notoriety, occupation, career, ambition, government, military, chief executives, business life, goals, ranks, political position, status, standing in the public eye, position in society. It shows your standing in the community and social status. It can reflect your attitude to parenting.

As Mercury moves through your 10th house of career and public Life, you will probably start thinking more along the lines of career and if what you are doing is really what you want to be doing. Trust your instincts. Just because you go through a slow period does not mean that you are not supposed to be doing what you Love. It's just the ebb and flow of change. Change is Good, change is often.

This is a fantabulous time to full forge full steam ahead with regard to your career. Make plans, set goals and then take action. Improve your work or anything that can facilitate your career. If you work for an employer, you may even ask for a raise or go after that promotion. If your career requires workshops or classroom study, then sign-up for a new course or go after that additional degree. Always update and upgrade your skill-set.

Make certain that you do not get caught up in minutia and forget the big picture. If you are an entrepreneur or if you are in sales or advertising, then take advantage of Mercury in this house because Mercury rules sales, advertising and media (in all forms).

Communications or education show up strongly in your career. Share your thoughts and ideas in your chosen profession. Mercury positioned in the tenth house produces an association with this house of personal attainment. This position highlights speaking and writing abilities that can be used effectively in your career and in attaining professional recognition. Your career is important to you, and your strategy in this regard has to be carefully planned, including education and preparation to attain your goals.

The benefit of Mercury here is the ability to communicate ideas to the public; expertise in speech making, publishing, and political strategy, are often found. Read the full write-up on Mercury in Aries here! Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

VENUS OPPORTUNITY - Venus in Pisces from Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 8:25 PM EDT until Friday, April 28, 2017 at 9:13 AM EDT.

Make certain you read this monster-size full write-up on Venus in Pisces. Read about Venus in Pisces information first for better understanding of what you read below or at the very least, after you read the information below.

Here is a nice little piece of Venus trivia for you. Venus will never be more than two Sun Signs away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Pisces, will have their Venus within 2 Sun Signs on either side of Pisces or it will be in the sign of Pisces. This means there are five possibilities that a Pisces Sun Sign individual might have their Venus -- Venus in Capricorn, Venus in Aquarius, Venus in Pisces, Venus in Aries or Venus in Taurus. This helps you guess someone's Venus even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can rule out Venus in the opposite sign (Virgo) or the three signs on each side Virgo (Leo, Cancer, Gemini) and (Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius). Cool huh?

Venus in Pisces is trine (easy and effortless) your 9th house of higher-thinking, higher-education beyond 12th grade, religion, philosophy, foreigners and foreign travel.

You may be drawn to art, literature and religion during this time. Venus is very expressive in a higher form and this may impact you as "unconditional Love." When Venus moves through the 9th house there is a draw toward higher forms of knowledge. Your experiences may migrate toward things you have never connected with before such as foreigners; foreign travel, cultures beyond your own and religious thought that you have previously ignored.

Intense philosophical and psychological thought comes to mind when the 9th house is impacted in this way. If you can sign up for a class, workshop or lecture during this time it will serve you greatly. Even if the class takes place after April 28, 2017, signing up for it while Venus is in this placement will make learning easier because you will still be under the influence of Venus.

If you are single and romance comes to you during this time, there is a VERY Good chance that this person could be from a foreign country or a culture that is unfamiliar to you. Again, you may meet them during this time and couple-up after April 28, 2017. Either way, Venus dealt the connection. You may receive an opportunity to travel abroad during this time. Make certain you read this monster-size full write-up on Venus in Pisces. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Cancer would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house.

Mars in Gemini on DrStandley.com

MARS OPPORTUNITY - Mars enters Gemini on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 6:32 AM EDT until Sunday, June 4, 2017 at 12:16 PM EDT

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2016.

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Gemini is moving through your 12th house of the hidden realm, subconscious, past, pain, karma, jails, institutions, hospitals, finances of friends, secret sorrows, fears, self-destruction, large animals, skeletons in closet, self-undoing and self-injury. It is about your hidden strengths, weaknesses and what you don't want others to see or know about you, unredeemed karma and selfless service to humanity. Refrain from letting this house frighten you because it is necessary that you look at your own self-undoing in order to keep yourself on the straight path.

Whatever you have tucked away in your subconscious mind may come to the surface so that your conscious mind can deal with it. It's a Good thing when old stuff resurfaces so that it can be cleared and you can move on with your Life. When the hidden realm reveals things from your past, do your best to deal with it even if it means owning up to it. That was then, this is now. I prefer to call the 12th house, "the character building house" because it is here where you will learn and grow the most. This is where you may be going through a 'dark night of the soul'. If you find yourself being held back because of your past actions, then do your best to gut through it. The 12th house is the area of self-undoing. Now that you know this, you can choose to clear it instead of letting these old patterns undo you.

This 12th house is so psychedelic. This house could easily get the unconscious minded individual into trouble because this is where drugs, alcohol, dreams and fantasy are all laid out. This is the house of seclusion and what others do not see or know about you. When the mind is not closely guarded, tamed and called out, then one could easily let their mind take over and then down the dark and dusty path they go. The mind is easily influenced here by thought, so you can only imagine what drugs and alcohol can do to the mind. You are better off giving up alcohol altogether during this transit.

Since this 12th house also rules mental health (see first paragraph) then it would be easy to fall into a depression and close yourself off to your friends. You may decide not to answer your phone and just want to be alone. For someone who is connected to a lot of people, particularly family, this is very unusual behavior. It's typical for Cancer to go into seclusion during a Gemini Moon, so you can only imagine what an aggressive planet like Mars can do behind closed doors. This is where you can lose yourself and your identity (drinking or hiding out). Oh no you don't dear Cancer. Lay off the bottle of wine because that will only relax you into a wine-coma.

Those who have Mars in this 12th house in their natal chart typically work in places where they can lose their identity and just blend in with others. This is what you might be trying to do during this Mars transit. Now listen, there is nothing wrong with wanting to be alone so you can get back in touch with your spirit. That's all well and Good, but if you are going to go into seclusion in a depressed state, that will not serve you. Channel this desire to be alone into reflection, meditation and yoga. OH MY GOSH, that would be awesome if you did not. Alcohol and drug free during Mars in this 12th house with some spiritual work would turn you into a butterfly by June 4th when this transit is over. I get excited just thinking about that. LUCKY YOU, if you decide to accept this peaceful mission.

There is also the possibility that you are trying to avoid someone. HEY HEY HEY, this is your Life! Do not hole-up in your space just trying to dodge someone. That puts them in control of your Life. Seriously? If you are going to hole-up, then do it for the right reasons (getting in touch with your spirit) and the Universe will smile on you for it because that means you are getting closer to Spirit. Oh that's Good stuff!

Mars in Gemini in this 12th house will also support you if you are working behind the scenes on a project. Writers, sculptors, painters and many many other skilled individuals enjoy working alone. This is likely something you will do too. You can emerge out of your cocoon with a finished project and feeling like a brand new person.

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Cancer would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Leo 2nd house, Virgo 3rd house, Libra 4th house, Scorpio 5th house, Sagittarius 6th house, Capricorn 7th house, Aquarius 8th house, Pisces 9th house, Aries 10th house, Taurus 11th house and Gemini 12th house.

For your personal natal chart that has your exact birth date, time and location, then the flow from the 1st house would according to whatever Sun Sign is your Rising Sign.

Chiron is the wounded healer CHIRON OPPORTUNITY - Chiron is in from February 8, 2011 at 3:57 PM EDT until April 17, 2018 at 4:10 AM EDT

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Cancer's, this involves your 9th house of the higher thinking mind, goals, ambitions, dreams, visions, higher education, religion, philosophy, travel, foreign places, foreign cultures and foreign people. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.

SOME SET-UP INFO ON RETROGRADE PLANETS Planets move forward in degrees from 00 degrees 00 minutes 00 seconds . . . to 29 degrees 59 minutes 59 seconds. There are 60 minutes in 1 degree. At 59 minutes 59 seconds, the next second that ticks away fulfills 1 degree. When 30 degrees is satisfied then the planet moves into the next sign at 00 degrees 00 minutes. When the planet Retrogrades it goes backward in degrees. Now come on, a planet never really does move backward, that is just an illusion from a shadow cast on the planet making it appear as though it is moving backward. IT'S NOT REAL FOLKS! It's an illusion but our reaction to it is very real. It's like being at a stop Light and the car next to you moves forward a bit and it makes you feel like you are moving backward, suddenly you panic and hit the brake but you are sitting still. It's weird! Retrograde planets cause us to be 'reactionary' but when you get 'the get' of the illusion, then it's all cool, rose posey and you make progress in your Life. After the Retrograde period, the planet turns Direct and begins to move forward in degrees once again.

Retrograde Motion

Example of Retrograde Motion: Forward in degrees, Backward in degrees, Forward in degrees. This is the 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance (do-over). If you see the dots as degrees, then you can see by the example that the Retrograde motion would go back to the 04 degree mark, which would make it repeat degrees 04 - 12. So the first line of dots is the 1st time in those degrees, the Retrograde motion going backward is the second time passing over those same 04 - 12 degrees and then forward again is the third time passing over those same 04 - 12 degrees. Pretty cool huh? Therein sits the do-over.

If you have been coming to this website long enough, then you know that I do not see Retrogrades as a bad thing. Fearful astrology is stupid and it is trickery from those begging for attention or pandering for business. Those who use astrology fearfully ought to be ashamed of themselves. All Retrograde planets are a period of a 'do-over'. There should be no freak-out-ed-ness in a Retrograde status. Re-trace your steps and make it better and put the brakes on the dramatization. You should be excited about a Retrograde planet because it is essentially the Universe giving you a 'do-over' before you progress forward. You are getting a 1st, 2nd and 3rd chance to make things right during a Retrograde period. A planet moves over a set of degrees (1st time), then it turns Retrograde and goes over those same degrees again (2nd time) and then it turns Direct and moves forward again going over those same degrees again (3rd time). Look at that, the Universe gives you 3 chances to get straight and fly right. Seriously, it doesn't get better than that. Seriously, how nice of the Universe! As a bunch of misfit humans, WE NEED THESE RETROGRADES, so take them when they come and use the Retrograde (do-over) wisely. Retrograde planets are meant to help you back-track, regroup, rewind, rejuvenate and get your life back on track. Retrogrades are basically saying, "Hey you! Yeah, YOU! I'm talkin' to You! Get your freakin' act together!" You see folks, we all need this, so take it!

The flow for your Solar Chart (your Sun Sign) is -- Virgo would be on the 1st house and then you would follow the signs in order for each house. Libra 2nd house, Scorpio 3rd house, Sagittarius 4th house, Capricorn 5th house, Aquarius 6th house, Pisces 7th house, Aries 8th house, Taurus 9th house, Gemini 10th house, Cancer 11th house and Leo 12th house.
