Mercury Retrograde

Mercury has turned retrograde in Leo. It will travel back into Cancer on July 18, turn direct again on July 31 and return to Leo (direct) on August 11, It will affect the areas of life covered by 24° Cancer to 4° in your Natal Chart, Where are those?

Mercury "goes retrograde" about three times a year and remains so for three and a half weeks. It retrogrades more often than any other planet, but stays that way for a shorter time. Theoretically, I suppose it balances out. In real life, it doesn't seem that way.

Mercury Retrograde

* Mercury Retrograde -- A New Look at an Old Aggravation ---> People know what it means ---> A surprising number of people know the term Mercury Retrograde. More surprising, since many people aren't really "into" astrology, they have a pretty good idea what it means.

* Turn Mercury Retrograde into an Inner Experience ---> Go inward ---> Mercury rules all functions of the mind and all forms of transportation and physical mobility. When Mercury turns retrograde -- as is legendary in everyday experience -- the chance that something will go wrong in these areas increases to the point it almost seems like a given. Things get lost. Things go missing. Things break down. Delays and misunderstandings abound.

* Mercury Retrograde and Shadow-Mode ---> The real life truth of Mercury Retrograde ---> When Mercury turns retrograde (in any sign), look at the degrees of the Zodiac it will cover in its backward retreat. Mercury's "official" retrograde period lasts about three weeks if you go by the regular calendar, but objectively ....

Thoughts on Mercury Retrograde

Mercury turns retrograde again this evening for the second time this year. The first was in March. The next will be in November. This one will last until very late on the last day of July. There's lots of ways to look at Mercury retrograde. Some people consider it a grim practical joke dreamed up by the Cosmos to deliberately wreck their lives for 3 - 6 weeks. I used to be one of them, but I've mellowed.

Still, I note carefully when it's going to happen. I make sure my computer files are backed up -- and the site. And I don't plan to launch anything new during this window. Mercury Rx is a time to rethink ideas, plans, means of communicating, transportation, travel plans and the like. Use it as a time to review, reconsider, re-evaluate ... and make different choices. See if that makes life easier for you, too.

Mercury Retrograde

Basic Stuff About Mercury Retrograde -- Here's what you need to know ---> Mercury Retrograde is an optical illusion ---> * Mercury Retrograde is an optical illusion caused by our perspective from Earth, the fact that both Mercury and Earth are in motion orbiting the Sun, and the fact that Mercury moves faster. Mercury is not really reversing course but it appears to be. That's really all you need to know.

Mercury Retrograde -- A Personal Perspective -- Rethinking Life's Regular Reversals ---> Changes in latitude ... ---> Over the years -- somewhere without my realizing it -- my attitude toward Mercury retrograde has changed. Dramatically.

The Positive Side of Mercury Retrograde -- The Bright Side of a Pesky Problem ---> Every cloud has a silver lining ---> While the time of Mercury Retrograde can, indeed, seem like a pothole in the pathway of progress ... because of the confusion and "mis-communication" for which it is famous. It also has its constructive uses ... which, admittedly do take some effort to access.
