We are currently in a Mercury retrograde cycle, officially from October 12th to November 1, 2007, though we we can feel Mercury retrogrades a week on either side. I don't know about you guys, but I am certainly experiencing this guy in my life right now.
Mercury rules communicating with others and ourselves (as in thinking), commerce and contracts. During a retrograde period it is not a good time to start things, but an excellent time to re- anything! Re-evaluate that big purchase, re-negotiate that contract, re-do that paper, re-think that flawless plan.
Mercury also rules machines with moving parts, like computers, watches, and cars. This is why Mercury is notorious for playing with our computer and internet connections, and time devices. Since travel also falls under his domain, we are advised to be patient and plan for extra time when making a journey.
Additionally, emails and phone messages have a way of going wonky. Theorists have debated who creates meaning in the word. When you read something, keep in mind that you as the reader are creating meaning of what you are reading. Listen to phone messages more carefully, considering you don’t have the “visual and non-verbal” cues factor to consider.
Strive to be objective in the way you communicate with others and yourself, and the way you interpret communication coming your way. Some people fear Mercury retrograde- but there’s nothing to fear! Mercury retrogrades 3-4 times a year, all part of a loving Universe designed to help us gain clarity when its needed.
The current cycle features Mercury traveling back in Scorpio and then into the sign of Libra. These days right now are especially potent as Mercury switches signs. When He travels about, the result is often that he tends to link his lessons from one area of life to another.
I would love to know how you all out there are experiencing Mercury right now?
I am currently writing more about Mercury in an upcoming article, the link for which I will make available on my own site.
Enjoy the lessons!
