23 degrees to 08 degrees Aquarius
3:31PM EST 28th January to 9:57PM EST 18 February
TIME to REinvent those communications, and bring REnewal and REflection upon the astrological house Aquarius affects in your birth chart. Mercury, our Messenger planet, once again REquests we gravitate to REassessment and REmaining calm while he plays his typical “tricks” upon the collective. One should not be surprised over this period that appointments change, travels see delays, and other kinds of movement upsets will be occurring. Watch for those ill-flows in conversation, as it is without fail at this time that this inner planet’s “backward motion” casts its’ arrows of flux upon us all.
So while those still in unawares stir around in the chaos thinking their worlds are ending, REmember it is to any soul’s advantage to be in the know of when Mercury is in REtrograde. There is no doubt it is our REactions to the abrupt and seemingly unexpected mishaps that are most important over this period. It is essential to realize we have so much we can succeed in over these times on a personal level; but first we have to know where to start.
A great place to begin is that Aquarian slice of your own individual astrological Zodiac “pie,” your birth chart. Which ever house that 23 to 08 degrees Aquarius rules is the area of life where Mercury urges you to spend the proper time focusing upon REnewal, REflection and movement within. REmember, this is the Water Bearer sign, naturally marking in your chart where you ultimately drawn your originality from. Coupled with the New Moon in Aquarius on February 6th, one can take this energy and equally allow emotions to be REborn within this area of the life.
Knowing your Current Personal Year Cycle, along with the Month and Day through your numerical perspective of forecasting also grants further insight to what is happening for you on an individual basis over this current astrological transit. When we couple the view that our personal numerical forecasts provide for us to the astrological, we are equally filled in with more important details for us to take in to account. One never needs to be caught up in the typical tricks of Mercury REtrograde when adherence to their self-knowledge is being done.
Attending to own personal work is always valuable time spent. Once we have properly attended to ourselves we then can shower the Universe with the gifts that we have acquired through our individual commitments to self. Thus, this first Mercury REtrograde Period of 2008 asks the collective to REassess communications in the areas of altruism and our sense of brotherhood.
In as much as the intellectual sign of Aquarius excels in its’ inventive and rebellious outlets, while the Messenger planet goes “backwards” through this energy, we are especially wise to adhere to meditation at this time. By doing so, we can allow the achievement of the positive results of this period to unfold. As the intellect of any mind is calmed and grounded, the personal affects felt REflect those that are seen on a Universal one as well.
Looking ahead, it is interesting to note that each of the three times Mercury goes REtrograde within 2008, it will fall in all three of our Zodiac’s intellectual Air Signs. Our Sun during each of Mercury’s phases will also be conjunct, transiting through the same air sign. This first passage in 2008 marks time spent in the fixed air understanding- the REworking of the organization and foundation of how Aquarian energy affects our personal and Universal lives.
To conclude, we give you the norm of any Mercury REtrograde periods’ do’s and don’ts. As always there is plenty of Lexigram wisdom to be derived from the revelations within the MERCURY RETROGRADE name itself. No doubt we have the aides to allow this natural period to go all the more smoothly, and if you adhere to the advice that follows, one’s REflective time over the next three weeks just can’t go wrong!
*Expect breakdowns and REscheduling with especially with travel arrangements as mechanical problems can easily surface.
*Understand appointments change, people fall to running late, and delays of any kind may occur.
*Communications are easily misunderstood, so be extra clear and patient with your words.
*REview and REnew things already under way.
*When Mercury is direct, go ahead with the launching of new projects.
*Sign important documents, legal agreements, etc.
*Initiate something new you wish to have the long-term successful outcomes with.
*If something must be set in forward motion over this period, be in the know there will be a restructuring of it further down the road.
*REact to any surprise changes in anger, as it will magically manifest more of the same to attract itself to you. Again, patience and courage is key.
