* Quick Notes on Mercury Retrograde

by Serenity Chappell

Time to reconsider

When Mercury turns retrograde, which it does about three times a year, it moves from the degree of the Zodiac where it stops before turning around (Astrologers call this piece of business "taking a station.") ... then it moves about 14 -15 degrees backwards to a previous point.

There it takes another station ... and then finally, starts moving forward again -- having tended (we hope) to the business it forgot ... or misunderstood ... or didn't get finished the first time through.

If this slice of the Zodiac crosses two different houses in your chart, you will "back up and rearrange" two different areas of life to be more sincerely aligned with your present thoughts and the presentation of your true beliefs.

Time to think differently

Mercury, of course, is involved with communication, the handling of data, the application of knowledge and information, and the way you study and present "what you know" for others to understand and use.

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.

So, yes, there are some very positive ways to use the energy of Mercury Retrograde. And once you learn to make the shift and work with Mercury instead of against him, you'll actually look forward to the peculiar energy of Mercury Retrograde and its unusual gifts. It's a Life Lesson worth learning, because Mercury Retrograde is a phenomenon that's here to stay.

Other Planets in Retrograde

Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ... -- Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself.

Jupiter Retrograde -- Expanding Your Latest Creation ---> Jupiter's interests -- Jupiter represents your philosophical beliefs and ethical principles. It describes your ability to share authoritative knowledge ... the wisdom you've gained both through academic study and through the simple experience of living.

Saturn Retrograde -- Rebuilding Your Personal Foundations ---> Delays ... get worse -- Saturn is notorious for signifying delays, and because under stress it also symbolizes limitation, restriction, and loss, many followers of astrology consider it their least favorite planet.

Retrograde Motion

This Thing Called Retrograde Motion -- What it means in plain English ---> What is this thing called retrograde motion? Wherever it's found, in the sky or in a horoscope, retrograde energy means the matters represented by the retrograde planet become more subjective as people re-think, re-consider, re-evaluate and re-build.

Working with the Metaphors of Retrograde Energy ---> When a planet goes into retrograde -- or comes out again, it doesn't just stop on a dime and start racing at its usual speed in the opposite direction. It seems (from the vantage point of Earth) to slow down gradually as it approaches the point of reversal ...

Retrograde Motion -- What's this all about? ---> Reversing course -- All the planets astrologers use to decode the spiritual language of the cosmos exhibit a phenomenon known as retrograde motion. Very simply, there are times from Earth's perspective when each of the planets seems to back up in its orbit ...
