When Mercury Trails the Sun
Mercury retrograde moves behind the Sun

Yellow is a Mercury color.

Quiet time

In the next few weeks you'll become more contemplative, spend more time in planning and research, quietly consider what you've learned recently ... and what you want to do next with yourself, your life, your interests, and your mind.

With Mercury in a trailing position, you will be more observant and less talkative, more intuitive and less expressive, more compassionate and less candid with your opinions. With Mercury trailing the Sun, your thoughts become more visionary, fantasies about your future dreams may supplant active "data gathering," and your intuition is sharper ... by a long shot.

Quiet mode

You'll talk less and listen more, observe rather than offer information or comment, and keep your thoughts, opinions, and knowledge to yourself.

This is a time to digest, ruminate, and create ... "doing research" as opposed to giving (or soliciting) advice. All this, of course, is "still you" ... but you've gone into your quiet mode for a while.

* What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information. Mercury depicts your capacity to form ideas and opinions, the way you deal with facts, and the way you process data. It shows the kinds of things that interest you ... and what you do with what you know.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

* Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury. In Astrology, this planet named for the winged messenger of the gods represents your conscious human mind, the part of you that makes you a member of the most intelligent species on the planet, the part of you that makes you human -- and sometimes fallible.

* Mercury Retrograde --Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> 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. It describes your ability to read, write, study, talk, absorb information and learn new things.

* The Positive Side of Mercury Retrograde --The Bright Side of a Pesky Problem ---> 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. Some of the lesser known positive uses of Mercury Retrograde are:
