Yet, as we also know, Mercury Retrograde periods are never to fear. Surely though you will see those unawares typically getting aggravated and frustrated by Mercury’s typical bag of tricks he draws from over this passage. With Mars in the mix this time, his tricks will be all the more frequent, and quietly possibly all the more messy.
The tendency for those unexpected changes will be intensified, and that needed response vs. reaction is more important than ever to adhere to. Ultimately, this is a time when any word with that begins with RE: such as: redo, reassess, read, revisit, rejoice, realign, rest, review, and by all means RELAX- is time well and wisely spent.
Truly, if you’ve been looking for a good opportunity to take a needed break, there isn’t a better Universal go-ahead to take some downtime! We’ll be letting you know more about how the approaching Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse upon New Years’ Eve will cast their affects upon the planetary mix-up. Undoubtedly 2009 is going out with a total bang. Again… watch those heads people.
You’re already looking to the 00 to 19 deg Leo ruled-house in the birth chart, as Mars in Retrograde is requesting your reflection within your desires, courage, and drive in the next couple months. Now you can add your 05 deg to 21 deg Capricorn ruled-house to the pile as well. This is the area of life where personally you’ll see those communication mishaps and delays the most, as well as seeing a restructure of some sort unfolding in the next 3 weeks.
For the collective, the typical Mercury retrograde do’s and don’ts will apply. While backtracking through Capricorn, all can anticipate a possible lack of optimism over these weeks, where things appear inflexible and the feeling of the weight of the world is on one’s shoulders. It will be essential for us all to truly proceed with caution and extra pause under this double retrograde transit. There’s no better time to hone in on the Goats’ patience while we communicate and move… we’re all going to need it!
TO DO or NOT TO DO under Mercury REtrograde…
Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, & schedules to occur suddenly
Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
Spend time in the RE’s: Relax, Revisit, Reflect, Redo, REcharge!
Gravitate to REsponding vs. REacting!
“Freak out” when changes come up
Rush: speaking, driving, doing anything!
Sign important documents
Initiate anything new
In the still of Winter that is now upon us, this is equally a time we will ideally persevere when we decide to LISTEN. Yet, that completely means we need to be SILENT. As always, we REmind you of the power of Lexigrams, as their messages urge to reach us with their wisdom through the very name of Mercury Retrograde.
