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.

Happy New Moon Kick Starts 2013 January 10, 2013

As the New Moon officially kick starts 2013 so the year begins with an ambitious but somewhat hesitant energy, where only hard work and maximum effort will reap results.  Setbacks?  Defeat?  No problem.  In fact, bring ‘em on…  accept these outward “failures” gracefully, since it is the quality of will and inner integrity that will be tested this year.  Rise above the restrictions of the outer realm… and embrace the beautiful and the noble spirit within.  Above all, remember that it is our own free will which can turn a saint into a sinner or a sinner into a saint.  So choose wisely my friend for you will definitely reap what it is that you sow.   Happy 2013… and keep smiling (on the inside).

Aries – Mar 21 – Apr 20

Happy New Year.  It’s up, up and away this month as you set your peepers firmly on what tomorrow brings.  So ambitious and so publicly pushy right now, if you’re not careful you might put a few noses out of joint.  Not smart Rambo, because it is exactly these noses that you need to take you to the new heights you so desperately crave (and deserve of course).  Just don’t pretend to be something that you’re not and you’ll be sweet.

As the final Full Moon of 2012 lights up the sky, a pale and elusive gateway opens to the astral realm…  where the future interacts with the present in order for us to release the power of the past.  This subtle but potent occult energy offers healing of all that lies dormant and unseen.  So as we say goodbye to 2012 get ready to take a deep breath and dive into the waters of the collective unconscious where access to the gift of prophecy will be granted to those who are ready, willing and able.

Jupiter astrology

On 21.12.12 a rare and intense planetary configuration known as a Yod (aka “Finger of Fate” or “Finger of God”) forms between Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, enclosing the Earth in a tense and powerful gravitational force field.  Resembling an arrowhead and with Jupiter (who won’t be this close to the Earth again until 2021) at the tip, this tightly stretched configuration points a brilliant, bi-polar energy at one of the brightest fixed stars in our galaxy, Aldebaran (aka ‘the Hunter’, “Bull’s Eye”” or “Star of Illumination”).

This very old, very large ‘royal’ sun situated approximately 70 light years from Earth is the fiery eye of the constellation Taurus.  Extremely powerful, this energy illuminates the higher consciousness and releases through the trans-penetrating power of the mind… destroying all obstacles in its path.  But the key to manifesting this energy positively is integrity.  Only with courage and honesty can the limiting…
