As we look to our regular Mercury Retrograde (MRx) passages (which always occur about three times during any given year) we have additional timeframes to be acutely aware of due to other inner planet cycles of reflection that will intertwine along with them.
Understanding Mercury Retrograde and what it actually is meant to positively do for anyone is wise timing is everything wisdom to always take into consideration for our planning and scheduling needs. These recurring astrological cycles are mistakenly overly associated with fear and frustration, which absolutely is not the reaction we are ever meant to have with them.
“Mercury Retrograde is always first & foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.“
Read that last statement again.
The only reasons Mercury Retrogrades “trip up” anyone is that:
ONE: most people are unaware it is in affect because they have never been introduced to the value of astrology, and naively choose to make initiations for intended long term success during them.
TWO: those who are aware of it are fooled into believing they should fear it every time is comes back around because they are simply misinformed.
If you know what not to do, and most importantly, what you absolutely can do under these reflective, recharging, reassessment and ultimate “time out” periods: you will always be in the energetic flow of Mastering Mercury Retrograde.
Before we get into when all of 2023’s cycle of reflection periods will urgently ask us to have the heads up in our calendars, let’s give you some astrological tips and tools to implement during any of them.
Why Are We Not Favored To Move Forward Under MRx?
Mercury is our Messenger planet from above that guides all communications, thinking, mentality, movement, electronics, transportation, travel, changes, perceptions, adaptability and all exchanges of information that occur down here below.
When in Retrograde -due to the backtracking energy that is cast off from Mercury- all of the matters it watches over do not function nor move forward optimally. Precisely why, anyone is well advised to utilize these periods of time for pause, redoing, and only focus upon reworking what already exists.
Human error is always highest under Mercury Retrograde than any other time of the year. Naturally, forward thinking and planting for future success under this time is equally not well supported.
Therefore, hold off on important decisions such as: starting a business, signing contracts, launching a product, getting married, buying a new car, engaging in any kind of new relationship, purchasing new technology, or buying a new home. None of these initiating actions will turn out well for the long-term, and if implemented under MRx, it is an astrological guarantee they are energetically tied up in faulty foundations that never have the genuine ability to sustain themselves for success.
What Are We Favored To Do With Success Under MRx?
Taking the first rule of thumb that Mercury Retrograde is a cycle of reflection, we are promised to flow with this reassessment time when we honor staying in this exact frame of mind. By only placing our attention upon what already exists, and choosing to wait and see about the future, our personal mastery of this cycle absolutely unfolds.
Getting out our “RE” vocabulary is one of the best ways we can discover ease and peace of mind.
Rerouting, reconnecting, reconsidering, recharging, resting, relaxing, reorganizing, researching, retreating, remembering, replanning, reframing, rescheduling, rekindling, repairing and replacing are all wonderful ways to reap the rewards of what this cycle of reflection is absolutely all about.
Mercury Retrograde is a marvelous time to work with: unfinished projects, revisiting existing creative outlets, reconnecting with old friends/former associates, reassessing existing business plans, practicing the pause, expecting rescheduling of plans, anticipating delays and set backs, having backup plans ready to go, replacing objects in need of repair (yet make sure these are done correctly), doing research, retreating away from the world, and above all, remembering to take a silent listen for oneself (extra meditation,journaling and yoga time please!).
Mercury Retrogrades & YOU!
For anyone’s individual experience, taking a look at your Personal Forecast is always extremely favored to know the precise and specific areas of your life that each one will be seeking your reflective focus within.
As everyone collectively experiences any and all MRx cycles, each one is energetically different from the last, making no two MRxs exactly alike. While the same rules of thumb will always apply, the pulse will always cast off unique affects being Mercury is in another zodiac sign each time. Equally, the other positioning of the planets above any MRx also will relate to, also are never in the same configurations.
So, where is change and necessary reflection asking for your conscious focus and attention during any given year, and especially this one?
Is it your income/financial matters, lifestyle or vocation?
Or your home/family life, wealth, or inner healing?
Or how you approach your life/appear to the world, heart space/abilities yo manifest/create or perception of truth/belief systems?
What about your communication skills, personal/business relationships or the shaping of your future goals?
Wherever Mercury Retrograde lands in your life or business, know this: it is always time to sharpen the saw within it. The value of astrology is, you always have a precise map and blueprint to help personally guide you through any of them.
Each Mercury Retrograde lasts for approximately 21 days (3 weeks).
All have an Approach period, (date when Mercury crosses over the degree point it will fully Retrograde back to) and a Shadow period, (date when Mercury moving forward crosses back over the degree point it began to Retrograde upon). The APPROACH alerts us to what MRx reflections and matters are on the way to be resolved, while the SHADOW allows us to tie up the loose ends and recorrect any natural errors that occur during the Retrograde itself.

Let’s Spell Out the Truth
Tapping into the mysteries of Lexigrams, we can also clearly spell out the truth here: BATHE THE HEART RATE, BEAT THE HATE and ever wisely from that grounded state, BE THE EARTH EAR.
Remember, reflection and reassessment success always can be absolutely ours, but one must choose to consciously slow down. Pause. Take those deeper breaths. Stop forcing matters, and quit the grinding, societal falsified illusion of maintaining the incessant and constant busy bubble rush.
Mercury Retrograde passages come back around in our lives in their appropriate timing is everything cycles, to be our perfect opportunities to restore, recharge and reboot. Without this necessary timeout and downtime, humanity is a mere stone that gathers no moss.

2022’s NINTH New Moon, 04 degrees VIRGO
4:17amEDT/1:17amPDT, 27 August, Let’s Begin & Initiate
With any New Moon, our Sun and Moon are in exact alignment as they are positioned within the Zodiac sky above. Energetically, emotions and feelings of humanity naturally rise up just like the oceans’ tides will equally reflect down here below. Waxing Phases favor actions involving planting anew and moving forward, as energy increases on a personal level throughout one half of your Zodiac Pie alongside the collective request to do the same.
This month, our initiation request begins as our Sun and Moon meet at 04 degrees Virgo. Then our Moon waxes through Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces until Summer’s last and 2022’s ninth Full Moon arrives 10 September in Pisces, 17 degrees: under Mercury Retrograde and The Approach to Mars Retrograde.
We continue to be advised to work with caution concerning what’s new within our lives as Finding Focus For Our Feelings requires our distinct soul attention to allow our personal experiences to be in certainty versus frustrations.

Are you one of those people who think you already know all about Mercury Retrograde and how it works? Have you and do you continue to blame all your problems on our Messenger planet during these times of the year versus stand up and become reachable and teachable concerning this cycle of reflection?
Yes that “tricky time” otherwise known as “MRx” is coming up to seek your deepest reflection yet of our year of 2021’s Changing Global Truth Dear Stars. Mercury will Retrograde for the second round in 2021 from 29 May to 22 June, in the synthesis seeking and duality associated sign of communications and establishment of relationships, Gemini.
You would be correct about one thing. There is absolutely no question that Mercury Retrograde is well know to cause plenty of energetic upsets, delays, confusion, errors concerning communications and movement of all kinds. Thus, the requirement is extremely critical to practice the pause as well as our patience, and rerouting of any good plan you might have otherwise have intended to flawlessly and seamlessly experience.
However, trying to place the BLAME on Mercury Retrograde at any time it is in affect is only hurting yourself to ABLE A LAME ME and BE A LAME ME as our English language via Lexigrams allows us to spell out the truth.
As a professional astrologer for over 2 decades, I have watched people constantly get their panties in a bunch and cast their frustration in a fury to Mercury like he is the evil demon spirit that must be abolished. Or I endlessly watched people who are clueless it even is “MRx” at all, which is like watching dominos quickly fall. For me, from my planetary perspective, it really got painful watching people struggle and falter when I know when anyone is informed, things most certainly can be completely avoided. These repeated observations are what prompted me to develop my Mastering Mercury Retrograde programs.
THE FACT IS: Mercury Retrograde should never be “blamed.”
This recurring cycle is ultimately only meant to be respected and honored for what it absolutely is able to do for you. If your free will chooses to do so, the rewards can only become yours. The first and foremost point to understand whenever “MRx” reoccurs:
MERCURY RETROGRADE IS A CYCLE OF REFLECTION.
If you try to force any kind of matter for future success during this approximate 3 week time frame, I do wish you good luck. However, you undeniably set up your supposed new foundation upon the sandiest ground you can find if initiating under a Mercury Retrograde time frame.
Yet, if you intend upon taking a look at your life on a personal level and look back at what already exists and for this passage, where 24 to 16 degrees of Gemini affects your natal chart and sun sign timing is everything scope, I commend and salute you. Undoubtedly, you will find the honoring of reflection, correction, reassessment and recharge to work to your fullest benefit. You have all the time you need to properly prepare as the Approach started, 14 May 2021.
Astrology has a wise saying, “The stars compel, they do not incline.” Being aware and armed with advanced Mercury Retrograde insight only allows you to be able to have fun, remain flexible, and know that all the stirs of changes are meant to be happening whenever it is in affect. Hence another valid astrological mantra, “As above, so below.”
Resisting the fact that another Mercury Retrograde period is in planetary “play” is probably one of the most futile things any person could do. Did you know that if you add up the hours we experience all Mercury Retrogrades for an entire calendar year, (anywhere from 3 to 4 times), these hours are equivalent to the amount of time we actually sleep during the course of a years’ time?
So if you are not blaming Mercury for what you didn’t properly prepare for in the first place, you can stop and recognize that his Retrograde cycles are as essential as getting a goodnight’s rest. Timing is everything in our lives, and when the timing is Mercury Retrograde, we are meant to slow down, rest, relax, and be willing to reflect accordingly.
Each and every Mercury Retrograde cycle is different, and this is absolutely critical to understand. Being it never cycles through the same zodiac signs twice within the other planetary transits in play, each one energetically has a distinct message and theme we are meant to integrate into our personal pictures.
Are you prepared to reexamine what specific area of your life this May, June and moving forward under the Shadow until 07 July- asks for you to take accountability and become responsible to reflect, dive deep into transforming the truth and make your necessary adjustments accordingly?
Or are you one of those people?“Let’s just BLAME Mercury Retrograde!” Not so cool to BE A LAME ME, is it?
“Cosmic Consciousness lies within and behind the layers of matter, physical energy, astral energy, and thought of consciousness.” ~Paramahansa Yogananda
If you are a regular follower of our monthly Word Ponder, you’ll have innately grasped from July how meditation is truly an act of uniting in intuition, allowing you to enjoy the affirmations that you have plenty to celebrate in the realms of concentration during August. So now we wonder as we think about where to ponder next, perhaps you just might already be one of those people that deeply understand –as you now maintain your peace of mind- that you may be experiencing the realms of CONSCIOUSNESS as you become more aligned within our higher planes of existence.
Consciousness is defined as: “the state of being awake and aware of what is going on around you; the part of the human mind that is aware of feelings, thoughts, and surroundings.” We decided to ponder this word because the very question, what’s really in a word? will clarify that indeed, the energy within and surrounding us of what it takes to perceive consciousness can reward us in a multitude of ways. If you acknowledge when you are experiencing meditation, allowing the space of concentration, there is something rather “cosmic” that begins to enter your consciousness. As the wonders, mysteries and changes of everyday life come to you in your now, what happens when you find yourself understanding this concept of consciousness?
To recognize how meditation is a path that only assists in developing our concentration, we see the end result allow a deepening of our spiritual experiences, as our understanding of consciousness opens further. Most modern day spiritual leaders in our new age world openly discuss their perspective on deepening the awareness of consciousness. Aside from what exploration continues within spiritual communities- more and more people are unveiling the benefits of connecting their physical and astral worlds. Equally, it is interesting to discover how Chaldean Numerology and Lexigrams view consciousness.
What does it take to know you are experiencing consciousness? It takes a rhythm that is attuned to a vibration. Every sound we utter contains an unseen channel of energy, and thus, when we speak our names and engage within the action of our words, there is an underlying current, this guided force that connects that vibration into it’s own individual expression.
When we examine the Name Expression of CONSCIOUSNESS -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 54, which is one of the compound numbers they considered to be extremely associated with universal concepts and accumulation of energy. Adding 5 + 4 together, we find the 9, whose singular energy is ruled by pioneering Mars- who governs over our courage, aggressive action, conflict, and conclusions in life. Ask anyone who knows they have experienced the realms of consciousness, and they will probably share with you that with courage, they have a stronger realization of the universe as a whole, bringing their beliefs to a higher state of awareness.
Being there is no Chaldean Karmic Mystery associated with the 54, this number simply reduces to the singular 9, carrying plenty of karmic and universal energy along with it. When we take the 5 and 4 -and look at them individually- there is even more numerological evidence why this particular word carries this vibration. As Mercury guides the 5, we find the channel of movement, versatility, communications, and ability to reach the masses within information across the board. Coupled with the 4, guided by Uranus, and we find the focus of humanity being guided by the channel of originality, brotherhood and sisterhood, individualism and breakthroughs. Both Mercury and Uranus in this combination bring within consciousness the ability to receive the messages that the masses are all one, but each make up a different and unique part of the whole.
As we engage in recognizing the rewards within our awareness of consciousness, another point to note is what the singular 9’s guidance does here for anyone through the motivation of Mars. 9 is known as The Finalizer, in where conclusions and endings mark the actions that this number brings. 9 is the energy that never alters the outcome when it is added to anything, it only makes more and intensifies what already is. Par eg: 9 + 4 = 13, 1 +3 =4; 9 + 6 = 15, 1 + 5 =6. This is why the 9 is known as the universal number, and another remarkable point to note is how it is equally is the root of the sum of all the singular digits that precede it. Adding 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36, we arrive right back the root of 3 + 6 = 9. Within consciousness, we are meant to see all of life as universal energy as we unite both our physical and astral planes of existence.
The mysteries of Lexigrams have more evidence to support the meaning within CONSCIOUSNESS, 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 word 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.
ONCE I IN UNION, I USE ONE EON IN SCENIC SUCCESS
I USE NO ISSUES, NO SINS, NO NOISES IN SESSIONS
I USE NICE CONCESSION SO CONCISE UNISON IS
ONCE I CENSUS SUCCESS, I USE ONE EON SONIC NOISE
IN SONIC UNISON, I USE ONE EONS IN SONIC SUCCESS
IN US, I IN UNION SO I IN SUCCESS I USE IN UNISON
