Mercury Retrograde in 2013… February 9, 2013

mercury_4179_1Being a Virgo (one of the two signs ruled by Mercury, the other being Gemini), this subject is important to me.  Its also important to me because Mercury retrograde effects all life on this planet very strongly.  Mercury being the planet that rules commerce, communication, contracts, and travel (just to name its major influences), its movements and energy play a major role in today’s modern society.

Mercury Retrograde is a time to slow down, and reevaluate.  When it comes to important matters, especially in business and personal relationships, it is a time to wrap things up prior to, or put things on hold until afterwards.  The 2 weeks(-ish) prior, and after, require attention and finesse.  Planning ahead and being flexible is key.  This is a time to keep yourself grounded, centered, and focused.  It can be quit a marvelous time, if one handles their affairs consciously and with an open mind and heart.

I’ve written two other blogs on the subject that go into depth on Mercury Retrograde and its effects.

Mercury Retrograde (MR) happens (usually) three times a year.  Today marks the pre-MR (or the “slow down”) phase for this current cycle.  MR will begin for this phase on Feb 23rd (with the Full Moon on the 25th).  Post-MR starts, or begin movement again, on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day.  It will be back at full speed, and life will resume at its normal fast pace on March 31st, Easter.

The dates for the other two cycles this year are as follows…

Summer:
pre-MR:  June 10
MR:  June 26
post-MR:  July 21
MD:  August 3

Fall:
pre-MR:  October 5
MR:  October 21
post-MR:  November 11
MD:  November 26

This retrograde is in Pisces:

When Mercury is found to be retrograde in Pisces, there would be mental and emotional confusions. Some psychic experiences are also probable. There would be a mix-up of ideas, opinions and passions among people. People tend to become too much spiritual or too much erratic in their behaviour. There would also be a tendency for procrastination and laziness might creep in. Paranormal experiences are usually noted. Stress shall take its toll. Stability and privacy would be needed for a trouble-free environment. Nervous breakdowns are usually reported on a large scale.

There are no hard rules in this universe, yet some general principles to go by are…

Romance…

Do’s when Mercury is Retrograde

•   Reassert your vows and devotion in your love life or married life. Take time to be along with your      loved one this partner. But do not initiate any new moves.

•   Do take time to mend fences with your partner during this retrograde period. Get rid of past      resentments and try to make amends with him/ her. Reconciliation would work well in this period.

•   Patience need to be exercised when Mercury goes retrograde. In case there had been a previous      break-up with partner now is the time to extend an olive branch.

•   You could rekindle a last flame. Look up for some lost love in your life when Mercury goes      retrograde.

•   You can revisit your ideas of pleasure this time, like your favourite hotspot, your favourite hideout or a     coffee shop you used to frequent with your loved one.

Don’ts when Mercury is Retrograde

•   At any cost make sure you do not get married during Mercury retrograde dates. Because this is the time when promises get broken easily, and thing go awry. Though everything would seem smooth between you and your partner, something creepy might get in, hence maintain caution.
•   Do not pursue a new love route. It would land you in troubled waters. Though it might seem right enough ultimately it would turn into a total failure when Mercury goes direct. You would not get a correct picture of relationships when Mercury is retrograde as things seem blurred.
•   Do not try to break up with your loved one when Mercury is retrograde. Divorce proceedings are to be     strictly avoided and stalled. Else it would be a big strain for you both mentally ,physically, emotionally     and financially.
•   Mercury retrograde is a period when your resolve gets tested. Hence make sure you avoid a     distrusted person who has been trying to get your attention this period.
•   Do not go out on a first date when Mercury is in retrograde motion. Wait till it goes direct to initiate     any moves because you would be caught on the wrong foot if you venture into this unknown territory     when Mercury is retrograde

Finance…

Do’s

•   Your financial deals need to be reconsidered and restructured during a Mercury retrograde phase
•   Reassessing and renegotiations of finances can be done.
•   Do take care of any pending old businesses and make sure you complete them beforehand
•   Do look for any potential errors in your financial moves like payments and insurance policies.
•   Garner data related to anything you want to buy or invest in future.
•   Loans plans if any and other payment plans need to be revised.
•   Be prepared with your papers for filing of your taxes.
•   Reorganize your accounting and book keeping systems.
•   Change your beliefs and attitudes towards money and finances for the better is yet to come.

Don’ts

•   Do not initiate any new projects, partnerships or investments. It would certainly result in a loss and also in unwanted delays and frustrations.
•   Do not make any new purchases, else they might turn up to be faulty or damaged or of no use to you.
•   Do not take any loans when Mercury is under Retrograde.
•   Do not file taxes when Mercury is at its worst.
•   Do not gamble, speculate or take any risks with money.

Mercury Retrograde – Nov 6th to Nov 26th November 5, 2012

November 6 to Novemeber 26th

Retrograde:  11/06 at 6:04 pm EST  (Election Day in USA)
Direct:  11/26 at 5:48 EST
Release: 12/13  (also the day of the New Moon)

Those most effected by Mercury Retrograde:
Virgos and Geminis  (Sun sign and Rising Sign)

Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth. Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get scrambled or spin out of control. Why does this happen? When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury naps, the activities that it governs don’t have the benefit of a well-functioning, wide-awake planet to supervise them. Expect a certain degree of pandemonium to ensue!(1)

I wrote a whole blog on this back in July (Mercury Retrograde – July 15 to Aug 8), seeing as its a subject that I find very important, not just because I’m a Virgo that lives with a Gemini, and I was born during a retrograde, because its something that even the most 3-D person can take a look and realize that these time periods always seem to have a similar effect on everyone.

Btw, there’s a Full Solar Eclipse on 11/14, and a partial Lunar Eclipse on 11/28.  links to previously written info below…

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

Mercury goes retrograde and the traditional advice is “Don’t travel”“Don’t sign contracts”“Don’t marry” or “Don’t look at your computer or it will blow up!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain. So during the retrograde period it is like Mercury has gone down into the Underworld. In the realm closer to spirit we become more right-brain orientated. It is dark, so other senses are heightened. We will feel extra sensitive here, psychic even. Everything will seem hyper-real… you will notice things you had overlooked before. This will prompt you to re-evaluate, renovate, re-invent, re-form, and reinvent. It’s true you might have to redo things, because Mercury will hit the same degree three times, but what this transit won’t let you do is to go into autopilot.

There are danger spots though. When Mercury is stationing retrograde we are at the wobbly stage where we are likely to slip up, make mistakes, and misread another’s communications. But once we are over the threshold and into the Underworld, we can safely go about out business knowing we are in another realm. The same goes for when it is stationing direct – give our brain a few days to adjust back to solar thinking. Whichever houses Mercury retrogrades in, will be your Underworld zone. Here you will question everything. It will make you jittery about signing contracts, because you will be constantly thinking, “Is this what I really want?”. Before the retrograde, is a good time to finish off those Solar left-brain projects and gather information to bring down into your cave at its retrograde point. Then you can slow things down, let yourself be taken into other dimensions, try on different filters, experiment, shine a light on your demons, then recharge and reboot.(2)

NOVEMBER HOROSCOPES October 31, 2012

Filed under: Astrology — herkimerlove @ 3:37 pm
 

10-10 Stargate (T- 9 days) October 1, 2012

On this most auspicious occasion of Light,
a stargate of Light is opening through the dimensions of Light,
through this quadrant of the galaxy,
and through this Solar system and onto Earth,
basking all Life in the Divine Illumination of the Tenth Ray of Divinity,
the perfect balance of Power, Love and Wisdom,
also known as the three-fold flame of Divinity.

Though this Divine Dispensation and sacred Pearlescent three-fold flame,
all Life has the opportunity of transformation, through balance and equilibrium,
as this tenth ray of Divinity unlocks the Akashic Records,
and allows the knowledge of Humanity’s Highest Potential through the Hall of Records to be revealed.

In this Divine activity of Light,
twelve etheric crystal skulls and a thirteenth holographic crystal skull holding all these frequencies of Light,
will be activated within and around this earth plane,
allowing access to the Akashic Records,
And with this, the Highest Potential of all Light workers on this earth plane,
taking you into the memories of Self Mastery,
primarily from Lemuria, Atlantis and ancient Egypt,
and in this Now, bringing through these Ascended Master gifts,
through the imprinting at a deeper level of the I AM Presence,
and these etheric crystal skulls of Light.
