Mercury Retrograde

When in the course of human events, it become necessary for us to pause, consider where we are, rethink our direction, reassess what we know or beliefs we've adopted, & generally screw our heads back on straight again, Mercury goes retrograde. That may not seem like what's happening, or what he's trying to accomplish. It seems like a mess, & it can be.

So try to make friends with Mercury Retrograde. Learn to speak his language. Understand what he needs to accomplish. Try to work with him on his terms. See him as a friend not an adversary. It will make a world of difference. It will make life easier for both of you. It will put you on a different footing. It will help you appreciate him.

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde has a reputation. Even people who aren't into Astrology know the term. And while it's around, they become "believers." Probably because it's useful. It explains, excuses, rationalizes why things go wrong. They can shift responsibility for why the car broke down, why they missed the appointment, why the email went wandering. "It's not my fault!! Mercury is retrograde!!

Well, ok. I guess some knowledge is better than nothing. But today, let's take it a bit further. Instead of blaming Mercury for everything that goes wrong, can we can give him credit instead? Mercury is a messenger, after all, and even a mess can still hold a message. You may have to clean it off and translate it ... but it's there, nevertheless.

It also has its constructive uses ... which, admittedly do take some effort to access.

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde operates on several levels. Some things are pretty generic -- based on what Mercury itself means and what retrograde motion indicates. Other factors give more details and sharpen the focus so you don't have to be completely inclusive and "all over the map" to see what it describes.

In what sign (or signs) does the retrograde happen? Signs have definite interests and include definite life concerns. Currently, Mercury will retrograde through the early degrees of Leo back into the late degrees of Cancer. Leo is about self-promotion. So, expect to change the way you present your ideas. You'll adjust your advertising.

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.

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 and Mercury Retrograde

Mercury in Astrology -- Basic Stuff About Mercury ---> About Mercury ---> * Mercury occupies the innermost orbit of any other planet in our Solar System. Relative to Earth it is located on the other side of Venus. Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. * Mercury moves completely through the Zodiac in about a year, but his progression through the signs is very irregular.

* Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind ---> When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.
