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.

So exactly what does “Mercury Retrograde” mean?
Mercury is going to start retracing the measured degrees within his current zodiac transit from above. 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, thus “retrograde.” Does it make any sense from the understanding of “as above, so below” that actions and events might become ultimately disarrayed as a result down here below?

5 Things You Need to Know About Mercury Retrograde

1.    Utilize the Approach to MRx to Prepare for Change & Reflection
While you will not put the brakes on your entire life, look ahead now to be in full awareness of how and where you’ll benefit embracing the mode of reflection. We haven’t had a period like this since 07 June to 01 July, when it was our last Mercury Rx in Cancer/Gemini.  Look as well to 06 to 28 February, Mercury Rx in Pisces/Aquarius. Think back for a moment. Do you remember now what kinds of interruptions, changes and seemingly “interesting” rerouting energies where going on in your life during these times?

Check in now where Scorpio/Libra lives in your natal birthchart.
Here’s where the most current and specific calling for re-examination awaits for your review in the particular area of life it affects, from both your sun sign and natal birth chart perspectives. Remember you are more than deserving of the offering for downtime on the way in these areas of your life.

Were You Born under Mercury Retrograde?
 Many people fair extremely well under any Mercury Rx passage because they were born under a MRx. They innately know how to navigate through the unexpected changes,  rerouting of routines, and equally, may have had their own delays in their early years in properly expressing their communications. However, even if you have a natal MRx, the same rules of MRx still apply across the board by honoring the request to review and redo.

2.    Total Hours Mercury Retrogrades in 1 Year = The Hours We Sleep in 1 Year.
This passage is actually perfectly timed as it occurs throughout the year, to naturally give human beings the necessary opportunity to slow down, take a pause, and rest up. What would happen if you didn’t get your sleep regularly?  This is exactly what “MRx” always requests and allows us to rejoice in for reward and benefit. Our favorite rule of Mercury Retrograde is to take up in action with any word that begins with RE. Such as…

Reconnect, Review, Reflect, Rework, Revise, Revisit, Reset, Reboot, Rewire, Replace, Repair, Relate, Reaffirm, Redo, Retreat, Reassess, Relax, Relocate, Relive, Redirect, Regroup, Remind, Remember, Release….. and our favorite RESPOND.

3.    It’s No Time to Move Forward
While our actions under the Approach are meant to be carefully dealt with, it is the during Retrograde passage itself that advises caution surrounding any beginning you truly wish to have successful long-term results with.

Avoid to the best of your ability during Mercury Rx:
>>>Getting married, starting, or putting an official title on a relationship
>>>Signing important legal documents
>>> Buying a car
>>> Starting a brand new business
>>> Launching a new product
>>> Purchasing any real estate
>>> Initiating anything into the world you want fabulous and fantastic success with for a long time to come.

Mercury Retrograde offers us all the chance to REthink the recent choices of our free wills. Whatever we may have to put into forward motion under Mercury Rx, typically doesn’t have the longevity and genuine sustainability for the future. It is riddled upon its’ birth with a shaky ground of unstable communications and mistakes intertwining it’s being. If we can avoid this outcome by putting matters of critical importance for our future off for a couple weeks, or making sure they are in motion prior to Mercury Retrograde starting, isn’t that just a marvelous time (and more than likely, money!) saver in this day and age?

4.    Human error is highest under this passage.
This is the very key to deeply understand how not to get wrapped up in those “tricks” that do find themselves right at your doorstep. Take extra time to make sure you catch the mistakes you’ll tend to make. The carpenter rule of thumb of “measure twice, and cut once” is a lifesaver under Mercury Retrograde, and you might want to measure three or four times- just to be safe. You’ll want to apply this to all your actions, and especially your communications -i.e. emails, speaking, writing- repairs, cooking, and anything involving movement that you are doing.

5.    Utilize the practice of PATIENCE.
You CAN TAP IN AN ANCIENT PEACE PACE, and ride through any MRx passage with victory.

>>>Leave another ten to fifteen minutes every day to get where you are going.

>>>Stop the rushing that has become society’s norm. Be mindful: slow down.

>>>When those changes show up in your plans, don’t REact, REspond.

>>>Have back-up plans ready to go you can enjoy the response from. Otherwise the result of reaction will create a domino affect you’d rather avoid under this transit, so be sure your free will chooses cautiously here.

>>>Being flexible and adaptable. 
You can allow yourself to have such REward over the next few weeks as we are asked to pause within our lives. And for heaven’s sake, it is the safest time of the year really to just RElax and REst without guilt! Try on those RE’s and dive in to what you know already needs REviewing and you’ll successfully sail through this passage all the more.

As we all look back now to our lives to what has happened since 01 July, see what progress we’ve made, what needs reworking, and most importantly, REmember to have fun with our RE’s of life. Our soul under Retrograde will be all the happier, and operate from a complete peace of mind as the changing times of MRx will be upon us.

Happy Returning to Transforming Your Understanding Dear Stars! Namaste.

So exactly what does this “Mercury Retrograde” mean?

Mercury Retrogrades (in a nutshell, he is going to start retracing the measured degrees within his current zodiac transit from above.

5 Things You Need to Know About Mercury Retrograde

1.    We are being asked now to prepare under the Approach, from above, to take up in reflection mode for a few weeks. We haven’t had a period like this since 21 October – 10 November, when it was our last Mercury Rx in Scorpio.  Look as well to 26 June to 20 July 2013, Mercury Rx in Cancer. Think back for a moment. Do you remember now what kinds of interruptions, changes and seemingly “interesting” energies where going on in your life at these times?

2.    Mercury Retrogrades in one years time about as often as we sleep. This passage is here once more to ask us, down here below, to slow down, take a pause, and rest up. Our favorite rule of Mercury Retrograde is to take up in action with any word that begins with RE. Such as…

Reconnect, Review, Reflect, Rework, Revise, Revisit, Reset, Reboot, Rewire, Replace, Repair, Relate, Reaffirm, Redo, Retreat, Reassess, Relax, Relocate, Relive, Redirect, Regroup, Remind, Remember, Release….. and our favorite RESPOND.

Backing up, upgrading and updating what you already have placed in motion previously is completely safe to do under this passage. So, if you need a new computer, phone or haven’t saved your files in a long while, these are perfect activities to take advantage of doing for success.

3.    While our actions under the Approach are meant to be carefully dealt with, it is the during Retrograde passage itself that is not a favored time to move forward in life, surrounding any initiation you truly wish to have successful long-term results with. So, if you are about to get married, sign important legal documents, buy a car, start a business, purchase a house, partner-up, or put anything out there you want fabulous and fantastic success with for a long time to come- you might want to REthink those choices of your free will. Whatever is put into initiation and motion under Mercury Rx, typically doesn’t have the longevity for the future, for it is riddled upon it’s birth with a shaky ground of unstable communications and mistakes intertwining it’s being.

4.    Human error is highest under this passage. Therefore, this is the very key to deeply understand how not to get wrapped up in those “tricks” that do find themselves right at your doorstep. We have to take the extra time to make sure we catch the mistakes we tend to make. The carpenter rule of thumb here will save you every time if you “measure twice, and cut once.” We’ll even add, you might want to measure three or 4 times- just to be safe. You’ll want to apply this to your communications -i.e. emails, speaking, writing- repairs, cooking, and anything involving movement that you are doing.

5.    The practice of PATIENCE, so you CAN TAP IN AN ANCIENT PEACE PACE, is how you ride through the MRx passage with victory. Leave another ten to fifteen minutes every day to get where you are going. Stop the normal rushing that’s become society’s norm to get places. When those changes show up in your plans, don’t REact, REspond. Have back-up plans ready to go you can enjoy the response from. Otherwise the result of reaction will create a domino affect you’d rather avoid under this transit, so be sure your free will chooses cautiously here.

Being flexible and adaptable will allow you to have such REward as the next few weeks ask for our pause within our lives. And for heaven’s sake, it is the safest thing really to just RElax and REst without guilt! Try on those RE’s and dive in to what you know already needs REviewing and you’ll sail through this passage all the more.

We’ll begin the first Mercury Retrograde of 2014 in a waxing phase from the New Moon in Aquarius on 30 January -which will also be under the Shadow of Venus Retrograde in Capricorn and the Approach to Mars Retrograde in Libra- asking us to take extreme caution within the normal initiation time of our lunar month until 14 February. This “criss-cross” of inner planet retrograde action, shadows and approaches, will be a sight to behold.  Check in now where Pisces/Aquarius lives in your Zodiac Pie. Here’s where the specific calling for re-examination awaits for your review in the particular area of life it affects, from both your collective and natal birth chart perspectives. Remember with all the renewal being requested, you also more than likely are more than deserving of the downtime on the way.

As we all look back now to our lives to what has happened since 10 November, see what progress you’ve made, what needs reworking, and have fun with your RE’s of life. Your soul under Retrograde will be all the happier, and much more at peace for it.

Happy Returning to Humanity’s Requests My Dear Stars! Namaste.
