Today the planet Mercury moves into retrograde, transiting a portion of the sign Aries over the next three weeks. Mercury is the fastest moving planet of our solar system and the nearest to the sun. He rules over issues of communication, electronics, little details, thoughts and ideas.

When my mom showed me this photo of her when I was about her age, I had a hard time believing it was her. The little girl in this photo has blonde hair and I’ve always known her to have dark brown hair like me. I’ve never had hair that light, but granted her hair might seem so fair because of the lighting, the camera work of the early post-war years, the black and whiteness of the photo.
