Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2020

While 2020 promises to be more than an innovative and shock factor year, we have plenty of Awakening the Unexpected that accompanies how we will witness this amplified and surprising time in our history unfold as the further promise of Becoming Friends With Simplification calls. 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 and foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.

~Sharita Star

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 2020’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 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! 

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.

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. Equally, holding a Mastering Mercury Retrograde Workshop for your business or personal team is an excellent investment to map out how these cycles distinctly affect the calendar year.

So, where is change and necessary reflection asking for your attention during any given year, and especially this one? Is it your income, lifestyle and vocation? Or your home/family life, wealth, and inner healing? Or how you approach your life, heart space and beliefs? What about your communication skills, relationships and hopes for the future? 

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.

2020 Mercury Retrogrades 

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.

16 February to 09 March | Learning to Trust Simplification

  • Mercury Retrograde in Pisces & Aquarius
  • Approach Begins: 02 February
  • Shadow Ends: 29 March

18 June to 11 July | Nurturing Rebirth for Simplification

  • Mercury Retrograde in Cancer
  • Approach Begins: 02 June
  • Shadow Ends: 26 July
  • (alongside Venus Retrograde, 13 May to 25 June under Eclipse Season: 05 June, 21 June, 05 July)

13 October to 03 November | Uniting the Divide for Simplification

  • Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio & Libra 
  • Approach Begins: 24 September
  • Shadow Ends: 19 November
  • (alongside Mars Retrograde, 09 September to 13 November)

The Intensity of 2020: Other Overlapping Inner Planet Retrogrades & Eclipse Season

When we look to other influential and periods of time in 2020 that will equally be asking for our pause, patience as well as reflection from other angles- we find there are only 4 months in the entire year that are “inner planet retrograde free.” 

ONLY one-third of 2020 favors planting and initiating for future success. 

Otherwise, as we look to how Venus and Mars Retrogrades will also undeniably color 2020, we have a huge healing, recharging, regrouping and releasing year on our hands as we navigate the universal year pulse of Awakening the Unexpected in equal and more than intense tow.

13 May to 25 June: Venus Retrograde in Gemini 

Venus Retrograde will ask for all the “RE” rules like MRx, yet shift the reflective focus to our values, money, securities, relationships, affections, beauty, and luxuries. All of these matters will not favor forward motion during Venus’s backtracking, as they witness dramas, corrections, and the need for understanding surrounding them.

05 June, 21 June, 05 July: Eclipse Season

Late Spring and Early Summer finds us experiencing three intense eclipses, which will work further with our healing and emotional bank accounts. 05 June and 05 July Lunar Eclipses trigger long term passages of release and cleansing from Sagittarius and Capricorn; while 21 June’s Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse favors a strong channel of new beginnings from Cancer to emerge for up to a year’s time.

09 September to 13 November: Mars Retrograde in Aries  

Mars Retrograde will ask for all the “RE” rules like MRx, yet shift the reflective focus to our motivations, desires, passions, ability to take action, energy and vitality. All of these matters will not favor forward motion during Mars’s backtracking, as they witness conflicts, aggressions, penetrations, anger, with the complete need for courage in response to any of them.

Mastering 2020: Remain Alert, Aware and Practice Self-Care

In closing, there is no question we have a huge responsibility on our human hands to remain accountable to this year in full awareness to be more than mindful of our timing is everything scope. 

Success can be absolutely ours, yet it is the deeper understanding that in such a reflective year overall as well as one that wishes to strongly bring simplification to the surface for us all to embrace, our greatest ones will be seen by placing attention upon what already exists.

To Your Aligned Peace of Mind in Changing Times.

SIGN UP TODAY TO START YOUR JOURNEY IN 2020 OF MASTERING MERCURY RETROGRADE.

Don’t Blame Mercury Retrograde This November

Yes that “tricky time” otherwise known as “MRx” is coming up to seek your deepest reflection yet of our year of Being Reachable and Teachable Dear Stars. Mercury will Retrograde for the final Round 3 of 2019 from 31 October to 20 November, in the intensely regenerative sign of rebirth, Scorpio.

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?

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 27 to 11 degrees of Scorpio 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 starts, 11 October.

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.

What’s your upcoming Mercury Retrograde reflection story for November 2019? How will you be Deepening Your Transformation for Truth?

Are you prepared to reexamine what specific area of your life this November asks for you to take accountability and become responsible to reflect, dive deep into transforming the truth and make your necessary adjustments accordingly?

The free will choice is always yours, Dear Stars.
Let’s get you ready to be only proclaiming you are Mastering Mercury Retrograde, 31 October to 20 November.

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

21 Days of Journal Exercises | Making the Most of MRx’s Requests

21DaysMRxJournalingMercury Retrograde (MRx) 
A planetary cycle from above that asks us to respect the actions of change, rest, reflection and review anywhere you may live on earth.

All matters concerning communications, movement, traveling, mechanics, electronics, and circulation of energy anywhere on the earth are all affected under this “backtracking cycle.”

The key to navigating Mercury Retrograde is allowing all changes to occur and respond to them without resistance nor reacting in frustration. How can we find outlets and tools to help us align our peace of mind in these changing times?

Get Ready. Set. Let’s Journal!

Mercury Retrograde takes us all to the power of the “RE” vocabulary. Engaging in the REconnect, REWork, REvise, REroute, REdo, REnew, REtreat and especially RElax are all great to do whenever it is MRx.

With REflection being our key “RE” action word throughout this cycle, if you do not already journal, now is the perfect time to start receiving your benefits with this mindful grounding tool.

1. Each morning, meditate within your own practice sprinkling in this intention:

“Whatever changes may show up in my day today, I easily embrace and accept them inthando my now.”

2. Take note of what you have planned for the day in your calendar planner.

3. Each evening or following morning, record how your original plans may have changed or altered.

4. As the close of Mercury Retrograde arrives, you will more than likely have very interesting evidence about the power of unexpected changes that show up under this cycle more so than any other time of the year.

5. REmember: The Approach (approximate 2 week period preceding MRx) to Mercury Retrograde allows us to receive the “preview of coming MRx attractions.” Starting to journal under The Approach is also highly favored!

The Shadow (approximate 2 week period that follows after MRx) connects the dots the all the recent Retrograde changes. This time frame is great to profoundly notice the ironing out and rewards that finally being able to move forward will then bring as we review our journaling journey.

GO DEEPER BONUS. Always check in with your Sun Sign’s reflection requests for any given MRx. What specific areas of life are you being ask to “dive deep” and return to the space of silence in retreat and get busy with healing, clearing and cleansing? See how you resonate with the reflective changes. Any Mercury Rx round profoundly asks you to reflect and do the necessary soul work from wherever it channels next in your natal chart.

Remember Mercury Retrograde supports returning to what already exists and is established, not making any kind of initiation intended for future success.

Start diving into YOUR reflection rewards in 2020….

16 February to 09 March: Mercury Retrograde in Pisces & Aquarius

18 June to 11 July: Mercury Retrograde in Cancer (alongside Venus Retrograde, 13 May to 25 June under Eclipse Season)

13 October to 03 November: Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio & Libra (alongside Mars Retrograde, 09 September to 13 November)

BE TOTALLY REACHABLE! The benefits of a Personal Forecast translated from your natal chart via your full birth date, place the entire MRx reflective icing on your timing is everything cake.

Enjoy the Healing Magic that Mercury Retrograde can bring you! The more you rush doing ANYTHING, the more those “MRx tricks” find you. Mercury has a nickname in Astrology and it’s “The Trickster.” When your free will chooses to work with The Trickster you’ll be able to “play” extremely well during his “RE” game. That is where anyone can find tremendous reward as well as peace of mind in changing times!

Happy Rising UP to embrace reflection, review & retreat! 
Namaste Dear Stars.
