Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2022

2022 Mercury Retrograde Cycles of Reflection

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.

~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 2021’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 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?

2022 Mercury Retrogrades 

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.

Mercury Retrograde & Your Timing in 2016: 5 Things You Need To Know

MRXlexigramsSStar“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

There are regular periodic cycles that astrology always promises will change our times, so aligning peace of mind is absolutely necessary to better understand the benefits that can be brought to our lives. One such cycle is Mercury Retrograde, the astrological offering for review, reflection, redo and release.

Who is Mercury anyway and what does “Retrograde” mean?

Mercury -also known as The Messenger as our closest inner planet from above- is in charge of our movement, electricity, communications, thinking, mentality, along with any and all exchanges of information down here below.

Approximately 3 times each year, he retraces his measured degrees within his current zodiac transit for about 3 weeks.

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. Now you get the basic gist of “retrograde” and it’s effects. Is it starting to make sense our actions and events just might become ultimately disarrayed as a result of this cycle?

What’s Really in a Word? Meditation

MEDITATIONlexigrams“Meditation clears the cosmic mist as the descended consciousness of the soul starts ascending to its lost higher planes of existence.” ~Paramahansa Yogananda

If you are a regular follower of our monthly Word Ponder, you’ll have innately grasped from May how self-realization is truly an act of uniting in intuition, allowing you to enjoy the affirmations that you have plenty to celebrate in the realms of achievement during June. 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 -to now maintain your peace of mind- engaging in the practice of MEDITATION will take you to an even higher plane of existence.

Meditation is defined as: “the emptying of the mind of thoughts, or concentration of the mind on just one thing, in order to aid mental or spiritual development, contemplation, or relaxation.”  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 what it takes to meditate is able to reward us in a multitude of ways. If you acknowledge when you are experiencing achievement- you may already be very tuned into this concept of emptying your mind or finding ways to concentrate on one thing makes a huge difference in what you find yourself achieving. As the wonders, mysteries and changes of everyday life come to you in your now, what happens when you schedule meditation into your regular routine?

To recognize our self-realization and achievements, meditation is a path that sharpens our inner saw so we can be more aware of them, resulting in the deepening of our spiritual experiences. Once viewed as a more “new age” kind of approach to life, meditation is quickly becoming more mainstream, even within our modern day business and corporate environments.  One of the most recent revelations this past Spring was aired on ABC about this growing “trend” as Anchor Dan Harris segmented the power of meditation -being so astounded by his results- he wrote an entire book about his own journey of practicing it, 10% Happier. Aside from what is changing within our common culture, equally, it is interesting to discover how Chaldean Numerology and Lexigrams view meditation.

What does it take to enjoy a routine practice of meditation? 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 MEDITATION -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 36, which is one of the compound numbers they considered to be extremely fortunate. Adding 3 + 6 together, we find the 9, whose singular energy is ruled by Mars- who governs over our courage, penetration, pioneering pursuits and attitude towards anger. Ask anyone who already enjoys a routine practice of meditation, and they will probably share with you that they feel more courageous, grounded, calm, and are clear about where they point their outward actions. Most people who choose to meditate, find their lives become not only more fulfilled, but equally more efficient.

Within the 36’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery, which is the same meaning of the 27s’ understanding of The Sceptre, we find very interesting concepts to consider. “This is an excellent, harmonious and fortunate number of courage and power, with a touch of enchantment. It blesses the person or entity it represents with a promise of authority and command. It guarantees that great rewards will come from the productive labors, the intellect, and the imagination. All of these creative faculties have sown good seeds which are to reap a rich harvest. People or entities represented by the 36 should always carry out their own original plans and ideas, and not be intimidated or influenced by the diverse opinions or opposition of others. 36 is a number of karmic reward, earned in more than one previous incarnation.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

Makes you want to get thee to practicing meditation right away doesn’t it? Within the action of emptying our minds or choosing a focus that allows us to enhance our connection to soul, what spiritual rewards are then to follow! Who wouldn’t choose meditation to reap a richer harvest, be in command of their mindset, feel more empowered, all on the good side of truly enjoying the gratifying side of what karma can reflect.

When we take the 3 and 6 -and look at them individually- there is even more goodness associated within the act of meditation. As Jupiter guides the 3, we find the channel of optimism, higher education, philosophy, spiritual joy and the true seeking of aligning the body, mind and spirit. Coupled with the 6, guided by Venus, oh what harmony and balance is here to innately embrace, as this number strives completely to seek to understand, then be understood. Both Jupiter and Venus are known as benefic planets, where ease, joy, and pleasantries are their influences if one is not abusing their natural privileges.

As we engage in the practice of meditation, another point to note is what the singular 9 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. Regular meditation always will bring us to a constant state of closure within our minds, in where, as we settle our busy thoughts and empty it -or choose a primary focus- we ultimately release and let go of the energy that does not serve us. This is how the rewards of the higher vibration of the 36 come shining through. For as we regularly conclude thought patterns that are not producing the results we wish to see unfold, the very act of meditation ends the pattern. Every time a form of meditation is practiced, the clean slate of a fresh, clear and ready to go mind is what we take away to move forward with.

Whether once chooses to meditate by emptying the mind, this practice can be also enjoyed through the simple act of taking a walk, chanting, yoga, music, art, tai chi, and plenty of other avenues. One of the easiest ways to enjoy these benefits -however you may choose to meditate- is to remember to  focus upon the breath. No matter what might show up in one’s mind, the return to the breath is the fundamental rule of meditation. What pleasure it really is to deeply BREATHE, so we BEAT THE HATE, BATHE THE HEART RATE, BE THE EARTH EAR.

The mysteries of Lexigrams have more evidence to support the meaning within MEDITATION, 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.
