This is one of those weeks wherein everything gets touched by MERCURY RETROGRADE. As I cast this, Elizabeth II is still alive, but the stars are saying she won’t make it past Tuesday (MERCURY RETRORGADE – Moon – Jupiter Retrograde). Definitely a rulership vacancy then. The day after, We see said MERCURY RETROGRADE lining up with Venus, the Sun and Saturn retrograde. Now Saturn Retrograde is interesting here since it indicates either a particularly unpleasant ending or a new beginning (also failed harvests and plumbing problems). Venus is (obviously) representative of women, but due to the way this whole Astrology thing got scienced together, it’s not typically a “queen” symbol. So I think this is more an emphasis or major event that has ongoing effects (since the MERCURY RETROGRADE – Sun -Venus part of the alignment persists until next week.) Maybe Chuckie tries to elevate Camilla above where people are willing to tolerate her? We’ll have to ask Limey about it.

So yes, MERCURY RETROGRADE is something we’ve dealt with before, but know that in this particular case it’s happening in Libra, which gives it extra effects in its chaos-bringing. Monday and Tuesday will be especially unlucky with the moon in opposition in Aries.
