Mercury Retrograde and Your Timing in 2017: 5 Things You Need to Know

mrxdatesbusiness2017-18

“As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a strong believer in the importance of cycles. You’d better try to understand them, because all of your timing and often your luck is tied up in them.” ~Former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca

There are regular periodic cycles that astrology always promises will change our times, so aligning peace of mind is absolutely necessary to better understand the benefits that can be brought to our lives. One such cycle is Mercury Retrograde, the astrological offering for review, reflection, redo and release.

Who is Mercury anyway and what does “Retrograde” mean?
Mercury -also known as The Messenger as our closest inner planet from above- is in charge of our movement, electricity, communications, thinking, mentality, along with any and all exchanges of information down here below.

Approximately 3 times each year, he retraces his measured degrees within his current zodiac transit for about 3 weeks.

Think of a person -or in this case a mass of a planet in our Universal energy field- placing a blindfold on and then walking backwards. Now you get the basic gist of “retrograde” and it’s effects. Is it starting to make sense our actions and events just might become ultimately disarrayed as a result of this cycle?

Venus Retrograde in 2017: Redefining Humanity’s Personal Values

venusretrograde

Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

As our Winter becomes Spring in 2017, it will be a powerful time that will have us in the ultimate request to honor reflection.

Unlike her neighbor Mercury, it’s been awhile since our Idealist planet took some necessary time off. The last Venus Retrograde cycled 25 July to 06 September 2015 in the signs of Virgo and Leo.

Upon 04 March in Aries, the next cycle of review and redo commences for Venus that will conclude upon 15 April, moving back into Pisces by 02 April. If you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde, you already understand all too well the kinds of things that can happen under an inner planet retrograde.

What makes a Venus Retrograde different from Mercury?
All of our planets from above guide over different themes and concepts as their movement affects our lives down here below.

Mercury makes things move, communicate, permanently change, blossom, think and energetically circulate.

Venus allows us to relate one on one, be compassionate, find understanding, secure our values, intake our money, enjoy our pleasures, find our beauty and cherish our peace.

Both Venus and Mercury are inner planets, so when their Retrograde passages occur (Mercury every 3 months; Venus every 18 months; approximately) we are highly advised to take note about our future plans -personal or business wise- concerning what they are ultimately in charge of.

Venus Retrograde in Aries 04 March to 02 April
It is more than fair to say Winter ends as Spring begins with quite a demonstrative calling to take heed of the earlier Aries area of life, starting at 13 degrees. Venus on a normal journey through Aries enjoys impetuous, unrestrained and easily aroused energy, yet we’ll find, these qualities are not so readily available as she’ll be under review.

Being reflection, research and review are in order, initiating plans during retrograde for future harmony and balance are best to be avoided. The energetic pace will be inconstant and short-lived, where mental focus upon devotion to ideals will be extremely hard to reach. Being able to concentrate on the essentials equally will not be attained without difficulty.

Romantic adventure is also typically favored during Venus’s time in Aries. Whatever plans one may have to engage in it over late winter into early spring, they will find will also not work out as originally intended.

Venus Retrograde in Pisces 02 to 15 April
The final stretch of Venus’s cycle of reflection brings her to recharge what needs to be reset concerning emotion, compassion and understanding within the very last degrees of Pisces until she goes Direct at 26 degrees.

Energies will sway to becoming indiscriminate, abject and inert verses the norm of tender, devoted, yielding and peaceful. People will be compelled to re-examine the theme of self-sacrifice to better understand what is the genuine value of this very area of our lives.

How to Successfully Work with Venus Retrograde
This next cycle of review and redo from Venus is quintessential in such a universal new year as 2017 represents. As we are all asked to remember the value of Being the Light at this pivotal time in history, Venus offering her reflection from the regenerative 13 degree point at start of the zodiac in Aries back to the end at a connective 26 degree point in Pisces wheel indicates a profound and very powerful time of rebirth as well as healing and tremendous learning experiences for humanity at large.

This specific retrograde passage opens us to embrace a true redefinition of the value we place upon human life and our united view of being here. Coupled with the independent path we are personally on to be a greater part of the entire whole, March and April energetically reset us from the core.

The “RE Rules” Under Venus Retrograde: What To Reflect Upon
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1. Beauty
All beauty improvements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, you hate your new hair cut, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.” Plastic surgery is a huge no-no during this cycle. Simply AVOID buying luxurious items, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.

2. Money/Finances
You’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoid any kind of luxury purchases is highly favored, as well as watching over-spending. Money investments with the intention of significantly increasing its’ value, can be complete future failures.

Venus Retrogrades essentially become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain from the seller who practically gave it away. However, the buyer may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if the purchase involves those luxurious items. Past debts may equally surface, and these should be absolutely addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect cycle to focus upon solutions requiring your research.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially brand new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

4. Your Personal Forecast
Wherever 13 degrees Aries to 26 degrees Pisces rests in your natal birth chart is the precise are of life that you’ll see an ultimate renovation going on 04 March to 15 April. Equally, potential natal planets that will aspect Venus’s Retrograde journey are important to understand to know how to make proper choices avoiding critical mistakes over this sensitive cycle. An ounce of prevention, is a sure pound of cure. And as Ben Franklin used to say, “Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

5. Appreciating Venus Retrograde Rewards
BE charitable with money, i.e. hold a fund-raiser for a great cause
DO scoop up any bargains! These are totally Venus Rx approved!
GIVE GRATITUDE for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what’s worth appreciating: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
ENJOY NATURAL BEAUTY by spending time outdoors.
TAKE IN ART & MUSIC Whether at a museum, gallery, performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it at this time.
REVISIT creative adventures already in existence, examine their progress and reflect upon ways to improve them.

The Approach and Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Every Retrograde passage has a “preview of coming attractions” as the planet crosses over moving forward, the exact degree point it will backtrack to called the Approach. We’ll start to notice what’s going to be in full reflection by 04 March as Venus crosses over 26 degrees Pisces on 30 January.

Every Retrograde passage has a “ironing out the retrograde wrinkles” time until the planet crosses over, moving Direct, the exact degree point is starts retrograding upon, called the Shadow. Whatever decision may have had to happen by no other choice under Venus Retrograde will have the opportunity to smooth out the fabric wrinkles through 18 May.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attaches herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the truth through lexigrams of how we can reap personal rewards.

VENUS RETROGRADE

*TONGUES NEED TO RESONATE A TRUE REASON
*NO GRUNTS NO GROANS, DO NOT GO TO DANGEROUS REVENUE ADVENTURES
*GOT TO GO ON AN ART ADVENTURE
*GOT TO GO TO GENERATE AND GREET GRAND GESTURES

Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
This time for reassessment within The Ram & The Fishes allows your understanding of the value of humanity to become redefined on a personal and collective level. Once 15 April comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (13 degrees Aries to 26 degrees Pisces) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness- restoring personal harmony unlike any other in quite some time.

Remember, what is deserving of being healed here comes from the acts of review under the retrograde. So rest and reset 04 March to 15 April, then happily gather up your rewards later! Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated, but what is ultimately meant to become simpler here, is the real value you’ll discover that is a genuine gift you’ve been patiently waiting for.

Redefining Values, Finances & Relationships in Summer 2015

VenusRX

Venus at her Mirror, VELÁZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y

Should the very word “retrograde” typically scare the average star follower, this is merely because they are not in full awareness of how to optimally work with any given cycle of reflection rather than fight against it. Our planet of love, harmony, and luxury hasn’t taken a real vacation since late December 2013 and January 2014 when she was evening the score in Capricorn.

For the next few weeks -25 July to 06 September- as our Sun transits in very early Virgo and the majority of Leo, Venus will be resting up once more. Even though we aren’t as warned to watch out for zaniness as we are under such inner planetary reflection as Mercury and Mars request- a Venus Retrograde brings us to a deeper sense of what we value within our lives, what’s it all really worth and how we truly relate to it all.

What To Reflect Upon Under Venus Retrograde
One of the Zodiac’s benefic and inner planets, Venus’s influence grants gentleness, ease, and strength wherever her graceful energy is currently visiting within the Zodiac Pie. Venus affects the collective’s values- as well as our earning potential, money, approaches to romance, and our abilities to tap into the feminine. As she decides to not “look where she is going,” the collective can expect the natural benefits of her energies to be up for review.

1.Beauty
All beauty enhancements are off limits, for Venus while backtracking will, for example, probably turn original brown intended hair color into orange, or the house renovation color intended to be red might just turn out hot pink, by “accident.”

2. Money/Finances
Curious as to why the stock market computers went “silent” for a few hours on 08 July under the current Approach to Venus Retrograde? Aside from the possibilities of computer glitches, (equally as our Messenger Mercury was precisely on the tipping point of Gemini entering Cancer to add to this occurrence) you’ll equally notice a definite “drop in value” concerning financial affairs and money matters across the board. Venus Retrograde prefers instead of trying to “make money” under her reflective journey, we choose instead to reassess our situations and get ready for major moves later. Avoiding any kind of luxury purchase is highly favored.

3. Relating to Others
Relationships, especially new ones, should be carefully monitored over this time. Beginning a new romance or a marriage are not particularly favored courses of action. However, this a prominent time when old love affairs and people you once knew return: so have fun remembering, or realize why they aren’t an active part of your life anymore!

Wonderful Ways To Appreciate Venus Retrograde
BE charitable with money.
WATCH over-spending.
AVOID buying luxurious items, moving money to increase its’ value, renovating the home, or any kind of beauty enhancement.
DO scoop up any bargains! THIS is totally Venus Rx approved!
BE GRATEFUL for what you already own and who you already know.
REASSESS what is worthy of gratitude and appreciation: keep it or toss it!
REFLECT upon all your present relationships, business or personal.
EMBRACE falling in love all over again- or let it go!
VISIT ART! Whether at a museum, gallery, music performance, or through nature, Venus enhances our appreciation and understanding of it all at this time. The older it is, the better.
REVISIT creative adventures already in progress. Reflect upon ways to improve them.

Where To Reflect | 0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo
This is the specific area of our Zodiac Pie that will be calling for a passage of reflection and review. Collectively, this retreat within The Virgin & The Lion specifies that we take a slow, patient pace here, and dive into what these signs request when it comes to developing both our discriminating and heartfelt responses.

Reflection in Virgo | 25 July, 5:23am EDT to 31 July, 11:27am EDT
The calling for pure, controlled, service-oriented and limited affections ask for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of correction, adjustments and details striving for perfection, all you will see that needs “fixing” will be revealed as a sense of self-surrender will be present at this time.

Reflection in Leo | 31 July 11:27am EDT to 06 September, 4:29am EDT
The calling for whole-hearted, faithful, inspiring and loyal affections asks for us to place attention upon them, so that we can recognize all the ways improvements can be brought into our awareness. Being the sign of drama, creativity and nobility, all you will see that seeks to be realigned and balanced will reflect the best through returning to generosity and loyalty from our heart in order to make the proper reassessments.

What About YOU during this Cycle of Reflection?
The simplicity of knowing your sun sign is a great place to start while we all take up in value-oriented review. Where are you favored to place focus, taking time in retreat- to admire, weight the pros and cons, and then eliminate what is not worth the effort any longer?

If you know your Rising Sign/Ascendant, this simple key will equally apply to your natal chart’s advice for this passage. Yet, we do always advise, have a professional astrologer do the accurate math for you.

Aries: I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 25 to 31 July
I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 31 July to 06 Sept

Taurus: I Create Creativity/Children/Love Affairs 25 to 31 July
I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 31 July to 06 Sept

Gemini: I Nurture Home/Family/Emotions/Environments 25 to 31 July
I Communicate Thinking/Mentality/Communications 31 July to 06 Sept

Cancer: I Communicate Thinking/Mentality/Communications 25 to 31 July
I Have Values/Earning Power/Possessions 31 July to 06 Sept

Leo: I Have Values/Earning Power/Possessions 25 to 31 July
I Am Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations 31 July to 06 Sept

Virgo: I Am Approaches/Mask to the World/First Impressions 25 to 31 July
I Process Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past 31 July to 06 Sept

Libra: I Process Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past 25 to 31 July
I Socialize Innovations/Friendships/Organizations 31 July to 06 Sept

Scorpio: I Socialize Innovations/Friendships/Organizations 25 to 31 July
I Structure Career/Public Life/Opportunities 31 July to 06 Sept

Sagittarius: I Structure Career/Public Life/Opportunities 25 to 31 July
I Believe Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education 31 July to 06 Sept

Capricorn: I Believe Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education 25 to 31 July
I Transform Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth 31 July to 06 Sept

Aquarius: I Transform Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth 25 to 31 July
I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others 31 July to 06 Sept

Pisces: I Relate Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others 25 to 31 July
I Serve Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets 31 July to 06 Sept

Take these personalized areas of the life and see where you are asked to reflect upon Venus’s backwards journey. What is no longer of value to you or seemingly “worth it” from the particular area of life that Venus Retrograde is calling for your review, is extremely favored for release and review.

Thinking in Simpleton Terms
Simplicity and making life less complicated is always favored under any retrograde cycle, so the reflective tone of it can succeed with flying colors. We will stress again to remember no matter what sign you are, any creative endeavor involving the completely brand new in the areas of beauty enhancements, (i.e. redecorating, home improvements, haircutting/coloring, cosmetic surgery, etc.), tend to not go over well. Whatever already exists or remains an unfinished creative project, this passage will grant the perfect time to revisit them for improvement. Some of the most amazing artistic endeavors can find their way to a harmonious completion under this passage.

Dealings in the financial areas of life are especially wise to delay any major decisions for long-term success until after 06 September 2015, (but remember again Mercury goes Retrograde within days of Venus returning to Direct motion upon 17 September until the 09 October, so be extra cautious with genuine long term decisions for success.)

Venus Retrogrades become buyer’s markets, as the victors are the ones walking away with the bargain, (and they’ll be ever proud of them under Leo’s energy). Before any boasting roars, they also may not have received the value they actually thought they were getting if it does lean to the luxurious. Past debts may surface, and these should be addressed. So, if you’ve got a money situation or a lingering legality that needs clearing up, this is a perfect place for focus and solution seeking research.

The Approach & Shadow of Venus Retrograde
Be aware that decisions and actions made as Venus started her approach -on 21 June while going Direct from 14 degrees Leo until Retrograde motion begins 25 July- are equally involved in this time of reflection. Once Direct on 06 September, the shadow will prevail until 08 October when Venus returns to 0 degrees Virgo, offering the opportunity to adjust any important decisions that may have had to be made while in Retrograde.

Decisions will be rather challenged as our summer turns into autumn, as our last Mercury Retrograde of 2015 runs 17 September to 09 October, whose Approach begins 28 August. As approaches, shadows, and retrogrades all intersect and overlap, our inner planets will be practically scream from above to reflect and reassess in the appropriate areas of our lives in which they call.

What’s Really in a Word? Venus Retrograde
Whenever a planet is actively in RETROGRADE within our Zodiac skies, it’s that necessary time when we are best to surrender, and know we’ve GOT TO REDO, and GO TO A GREAT REORDER. As our romantic and value-loving planet attracts herself to the retrograde title, how apropos the anagrams we can derive are able to spell out the real truth of how we can reap rewards and stay in true tune with her request to revisit how we earn, understand and relate as we return to save our lives.

Honoring A Cycle of Reflection
Appreciate this time for reassessment where The Virgin & The Lion seek to align the details to bring matters of the heart to become more aligned with the decisions your head makes in your Zodiac Pie Dear Stars. Once 06 September comes to pass, the activity within these degrees points (0 degrees Virgo to 14 degrees Leo) of the life will start to stir and reap goodness within your life unlike any other in quite some time.

Know, the grandeur may not be what you had originally anticipated, but what is meant to become simpler here, is the real value you’ll discover that is a genuine gift you’ve been patiently waiting for.

Not Your Average Mercury Retrograde

Earhthotcold

All those regular Mercury Retrograde “RE” rules that proclaim honor reflection, renewal, review, redo, and retreat are about to be up close and personal once again for the second time in 2015 from 18 May to 11 June.

This cycle of reflection occurs in the Zodiac sign of Gemini, where our intellectual awareness and synthesis of spirit calls to be closely examined under the recharge microscope. While Mercury is going to reverse it’s direction in a sign it has natural rulership over, this passage is riddled with extra energetic intensities across the board.

Courage or Conflict?
Mars, our planet of taking action, motivation, desires and drawing upon conclusions will be energetically in the mix as Mercury ask us to review. As Mars equally is transiting within Gemini for the entire cycle, this flavors it with sharpness as well as conflicting action concerning the changes that call within reflection, review & release.

Peace of Mind or Delusion?
Neptune, our planet of the subconscious, mysticism, spirituality, solitude, the inner process, delusions and addictions will be in a tense conversation with Mercury as he is doing his review and redo show. Neptune now currently transits in Pisces, which creates a strong “squaring off” energy to this entire Mercury Retrograde (MRx) cycle, as well as to Mars as they both journey in Gemini.

Squares are known to bring about tense, stagnant, and blocked energies. However, they ultimately create future foundation and strength when worked with properly. As Neptune gets involved in the MRx conversation, it is equally wise to watch for further mishaps the cycle tends to naturally create all upon it’s own, such as:

~Absentmindedness & mental disorganization
~Challenges with getting the details straight
~Feeling repressed emotions  
~Forgetfulness
~Communication problems
~Errors concerning anything that moves

This energy promotes the unconscious mind to play “tricks” upon the conscious one. We always say under Mercury Rx, use the “carpenter’s rule.” This advice under this not your average mercury retrograde is heightened times 10!!!

Extra Mindfulness & Awareness required 24 to 31 May
While Mercury backtracks, he will meet up with Mars moving fwd at 10 degrees Gemini upon 27 May. The days leading up to and after this exact conjunction of two celestial bodies “bumping into one  another” will cast an extra “boost” of the regular “RE” rules, as Mars will absolutely amplify the natural tendencies of the retrograde cycle.

Mars naturally channels the potentials of aggression, anger, conflict & penetration. Equally, it’s pioneering and warrior presence is able to shine with courage and motivation wherever it is journeying by mindful choice of the free will.

Within the Mercury Rx mix, it will be the aggressive side of Mars that will need to be carefully monitored as well. Heated & competitive arguments may surface, (especially in the political arenas or any area that lends itself to controversy & debate) that simply can be avoided with slowing down our pace and choosing to listen more, especially where Gemini energy lives within our lives. Watch for a complete “field day” in the media to say the very least!

As Mars and Mercury conjunct in Gemini, they will directly square Neptune in Pisces, kicking up those unconscious “tricks” even more so. MRx always promotes retreat and review, yet this cycle is fueled with the following potentials to emerge:

~Skeletons from the past absolutely saying BOO!
~Secrets easily being exposed
~Anxieties and nervousness are heightened and “lit up”
~Returning to unhealed addictions and spinning out of control.
~Believing self-deception when one is not fully aware of their truth and motivation
~Relationships existing within duality becoming exposed.

Mastering Mercury Retrograde
The brilliance of this cycle will be wonderful and wise for those who take their time to quiet their minds, think before speaking, and allow the sharp and abundant mental energy to flow with the true cleverness, intuition and genius it can provide.  Creatively, it is a godsend channel of energy to embrace for those willing to listen carefully to it.

Whatever truly needs to be reviewed, redone, and reassessed from the Gemini area of the life, amazing information can be gathered through investigation and honoring decisions made in reflection. Once the shadow passage comes into play 11 to 27 June, taking acting concerning these decisions will be ever powerful for the future.

Sounds like a lot for your free will to consider doesn’t it? This is one reason why we offer the Mastering Mercury Retrograde Program, where Astrology meets the benefits of Meditation.  Whatever part of the world you’ll be living out the not your average Mercury Retrograde in Gemini 2015, let’s get you grounded, centered and able to absolutely handle what will undoubtedly be stirring around you energetically during this cycle of reflection.

Capturing the Magic of Mercury’s Reflection in Aquarius

HEART.SharitaStar

5 Questions To Ask During Mercury Retrograde, 21 Jan to 11 Feb 2015

We know you’ve already been feeling the coming attractions of another Mercury Retrograde (MRx) cycle of reflection since the Approach began 05 January. If you are already in awareness about Mercury Retrograde & Your Timing in 2015: 5 Things You Need To Know, are you now ready for some necessary review, renew and release?

1. Why the Request to Reflect Upon Humanity’s Loyalty?
Mercury backtracks for the first time in 2015 within Aquarius, starting upon 21 January as he offers up his review and redo passage until 11 February. This is the sign which loves it’s inventions, breaking through with originality that can serve all of humanity. As our Sun is equally transiting within this sign simultaneously, the question is raised, what is our heartfelt loyalty to humanity all about right now?

2. Where Is Review, Rerouting and Retreat Favored For Me?
While Mercury Retrograde affects just about anything that moves in life, looking at the simplicity of your Sun Sign points to one specific area of life you’ll be personally asked to honor our Messenger’s reflective requests. Your natal birth chart, which is cast from the full date of birth, time and place you are born, determines the other.

3. How Can I Reap those “RE” Rewards?
Remember, this is the true time to get your dictionary out and revel in the “re” action words, for Mercury’s backwards motion from 17 degrees back to 01 degrees Aquarius will only cause resistance if we do not heed this mighty call.

As our Messenger backtracks within The Water Bearer -the sign of friendships, socialization and groups, along with our hopes, dreams and wishes that is guided by the fixed organization of air- we are asked to recognize the stirs of information circulating around these ideas and energies.

We may become tricked into being superficial, vague, cold and forget what imagination and warmth is meant to do for us. Time spent to ponder the question, what is the importance of my part in heart when it comes to the whole of humanity right now?

Double Layer Cake of Reflection Begins 03 February
It will be equally wise to check in with your LunarOScopes for 03 February on the Full Moon in Leo, which will also ask we bask in further reflection in optimistic ways where The Lion casts off completion and release, as another waning moon phase begins. The Moon Void of Course periods over any week should always be noted, but the ones from 03 to 11 February will cast off the “triple layer cake” request for reflection.

4. Do I Foolishly Think Mercury Retrograde Doesn’t Affect Me?
Those wishing to react and remain in resistance to the normal flux of changes that Mercury’s “vacation mode” causes involving our schedules, routines, communications, information exchanges and any mechanism that moves –and not having fun with flexibility, nor embracing the rewards of reflection- will find themselves facing lessons that explore what rejection really means within their life.

Bonus Soul Homework! Ask Yourself:
What old projects are not done where Aquarius affects my life?
What can I recreate in this area of my life?
How can research benefit me?
Who haven’t I spoken to from this area of my life in a while?
What responsibilities here have I forgotten about?

5. What Will I Do and Not Do for Success Under Mercury Retrograde?

DO:
*Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, communications & schedules to occur suddenly
*Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
*Back-up information, replace or upgrade technology already in place
*Spend time in the RE’s: Release, Relax, Rest, Reread, Rewrite, Revisit, Reconnect, Reflect, Redo, Repair, Recharge, Review!
*Have Plan B (and Plan C, D or even E if necessary) always ready to go
*Gravitate to Responding vs. Reacting!

DON’T:
*“Freak out” when changes come up
*Rush: speaking, driving, whatever involves movement in your life.
A great practice is to take pause & count to 10 before doing anything!
*Sign important documents
If you absolutely have to, use the Carpenter’s Rule & Remember: NO Moon VOC signings!
*Initiate or buy anything NEW that you wish to have long-term success with.
ie: Get married, start just about anything- especially a relationship, business, adventure.

What’s Really in a Word? Mercury Retrograde

MRXlexigramsSStar
We are taking a “detour” from our normal chain of word pondering to place our attention upon astrology’s recurring cycle of MERCURY RETROGRADE.

Who is Mercury & What Happens Under Retrograde?
This is an astrological cycle in time that asks us to carefully consider our choices for the future- preferring that we take time to rest, reroute, reboot, and recharge as best we can during it’s passage.

Being Mercury is an inner planet, its’ retrograde affects are felt more intensely than what our outer planet retrograde cycles unfold. Mercury is known as our Messenger, the planet that guides all of our thinking, mentality, communicating, and anything that involves movement within our lives.

When Mercury is retrograde, he is equally known as “The Trickster” when we tend to naturally see our courses of action involving flux, change, and oddities surrounding them during this transit that asks for pause verses forward motion. Human error is also known to be at its’ highest under this transit.

First Off, What Does “Retrograde” Mean?
From Mercury all the way out to Pluto, you’ll find all our planetary channels periodically take action in what is called “Retrograde.” These are the times that we are guided to GOT TO GO REDO EGO, GOT TO GO TO ART, GOT TO GO RETREAT, GOT TO GO A GREAT DEAR REREAD as we can spell out the truth.

Any astronomer can properly explain to you that even though planets literally reverse their direction via their measured degrees in astrology, they aren’t in actuality going backwards at all by physical astronomical definition. One thing is for certain, is they aren’t moving forward when one is in the awareness of any planet’s retrograde motion.

Oh and by the way, the “RETRO” you obviously see at these times is not some new trendy thing recycled from the past. However, the RETRO you do witness under these reflective planetary periods certainly does take you back to fix what maybe screaming at you to take that pause to chill out, slow down, and finally pay attention to it.

Any planets’ retrograde period requests us to return, redo, reflect and reassess what we’ve already put into forward motion from the area of our lives in is journeying on it’s backwards trail through. It is best too, to have your birth chart properly done by a professional astrologer so you can know exactly what area of your life any given retrograde cycle urges you to “retro” on back to.

Name Expressions: The Energy Vibrations Within Our Names & Titles
When we examine the Name Expression of the specific title of MERCURY RETROGRADE -which is the numerological energy that is always behind it through the values of the letters that compose it- we find it has, as numbers always will provide, the very key points to know what exactly to do within the action of it.

One should not be surprised it is guided by the Chaldean’s understanding of the 13, which is one of the compound numbers they coined as the understanding of ‘Regeneration – Change.’ Adding 1 + 3 together, we find the 4, whose singular energy is ruled by the planet Uranus, who opens us up to breakthroughs and sudden changes- equally governing over our originality, individuality and the unexpected in life. What happens under Mercury Retrograde is all about returning to a point of regeneration, and the changes we see during it’s passage, are more often than not: sudden and unexpected.

The Chaldean Karmic Mystery associated with the 13, ‘Regeneration – Change,’ is uncannily on point as to what we all tend to experience anytime Mercury Retrogrades. Said the Chaldeans about the 13: “13 is not an unlucky number, as many people believe. The ancients claimed that he who understands how to use the number 13 will be given power and dominion. The symbol of the 13 is a skeleton, or death, with a scythe, reaping down men in a field of new-grown grass, where young faces and heads appear to be thrusting through the ground and emerging on all sides. 13 is a number of upheaval, so that new ground may be broken. It’s associated with power, which, if used for selfish purposes, will bring destruction upon itself. There is a warning of the unknown and the unexpected. Adapting to change gracefully will bring out the strength of the 13 vibration, and decrease any potential for he negative. 13 is associated with genius- also with explorers, breaking the orthodox and new discoveries of all kinds. 4/8 advice as well.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

There is no doubt that we all experience profound energies as we circulate through any Mercury Retrograde as its’ Name Expression advises through the 13’s concept of  ‘Regeneration – Change.’ MRx always reroutes, asking us to have backup plans B, C, D & even E necessary during it’s transit. Whatever we may be anticipating, we will experience changes with it on some level.

It is rare for any MRx passage to go by without us equally noticing that regeneration of some kind has found us as well. The key to embracing graceful energy under MRx is to adapt to change, the very request of the 13 Name Expression itself.

What is also of interest to note is the artistic energy surrounding a Mercury Retrograde. While MRx certainly does not advise the signing of documents, getting married or starting anything for the future, returning to adventures where creativity and unfinished projects are the focus- these are able to tap into that genius the 13 promises to emerge within anyone.

Astrologically throughout history, some of the greatest artistic releases via film, music or the like have been revealed under a Mercury Retrograde passage. So, returning to creativity is a positive thing -and quite lucky indeed- we can discover is time well spent in the power of what this “tricky” passage can bring into our genius experiences.

As we engage in recognizing the rewards within what our Mercury Retrograde passages request, another point to note is what the singular 4’s guidance does here for anyone through how Uranus prepares us to expect the unexpected from the entire transit. 4 is known as The Innovator, in where the backtracking, reflection and review we do tends to open up some of the greatest creations we will find to move forward with once the transits completes.  4 is the energy that always requests for us to honor the self, our individuality, and see the larger picture of how we are equally all connected as one through a universal brotherhood and sisterhood.

Lexigrams & Mercury Retrograde: Let’s Spell Out The Truth
The mysteries of Lexigrams have more evidence to support the meaning within MERCURY RETROGRADE, and what it is simply able to do for any of us. By taking the anagrams we can derive from this word, and spiral them into poetic phrases, the Lexigram process brings one more piece of the puzzle to place into our mastery of life about what’s really hiding within it in truth. The reality that relates to how to best reap the rewards this title wishes for us all to assimilate into our human experiences, is as always, ready to be spelled out from the very letters that compose it.
