30 March – 23 April 2011
The last day Mercury was
@ 12 deg Aries.
The next time Mercury reaches
24 deg Aries going Direct.
“Everything that is made has a magical influence in it. If it is made with a thought quite contrary to what is needed, it only means dangers awaiting the ship, the train, the wagon, the car. Very often, without apparent cause you find a boat in danger, something breaking without a substantial reason. In its make-up the thought of destruction has been given. It is working through it; it is something more living that the object itself. So it is when a house is built. The thoughts given to it by the one who was building it, it by those who worked it out, all count. The thought attached to things is a life power.”
-Hazrat Inayat Khan
Thought provoking and Messenger Mercury entered Aries 09 March and will transit here until 15 May. The collective’s thinking and mentality is engaged with being keenly alert and sparking with daring ideas. This is a time when it is wise to go with your first thoughts, as these are best to take direction with. Expect spontaneous action coupled with quick, acute, and inspired perceptions. With Jupiter already expanding with The Ram, get ready for ACTION in this area of your Zodiac Pie as the Sun is also here now casting some light upon the situation at hand.
Mercury will engage in its’ first REtrograde of 2011 from 30 March at 4:48pm EDT to 23 April, 6:04am EDT. Mercury in Aries naturally lends to the potential energies that may extend into lack of: concentration, continuity, patience, and restraint. So, do be cautious with those “first thoughts” over this period, for they may, just be a slight misguided here. Remember this is a time to ideally reflect; and precisely where reassessments wish to be revealed within the 24 deg to 12 deg Aries piece of your natal Zodiac Pie.
Upon 02 April, Mars joins up with the activity within The Ram. Mars is our planet of drive, motivation, and wherever it currently transits is the place we are most apt to desire to take action presently within our Zodiac Pies. Couple this with Mercury here -not looking where he is going- and one can be sure to see a bit of upset and further confusion. These two planets will conjunct at 13 degrees Aries over the days of 18 – 20 April. This marks a critical time to truly take to a slow and easy pace here, where it cannot be stressed enough that gravitating to patience helps ease our every course of action.
The numerological implications of this 13-degree conjunction point to the Chaldean understanding of Regeneration – Change. The old ground urges to be turned up to reveal new life within, often accompanied by ingenious inventions. The ability to see exactly how this Universal offering of REflection and REassessment will be strong and impetuous over these days, wherein, undoubtedly the force and intensity to unfold will be ones to reckon with.
While not involved directly with The Messenger’s degrees of REtrograde action, Uranus is also now in forward motion in Aries. The planet of originality, reform, and the unexpected will still only be at the beginnings of the breakthroughs to come in the years ahead while journeying with The Ram as it transits from 01 to 02 degrees. However, this is a factor to equally take into consideration of understanding just how the unexpected may find you wherever Aries energy personally affects your natal birth chart.
From the collective perspective, we have a quick and easy guide which points to one of your favored areas of reflection over this passage. The 24 to 12 degrees Aries piece in your natal birth chart points to the other.
Aries: Approaches/Mask to the World/First Impressions
Taurus: Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past/Subconscious
Cancer: Career/Public Life/Opportunities
Leo: Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education/Beliefs
Virgo: Transformations/Sexuality/Wealth/Death & Rebirth
Libra: Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others
Scorpio: Health/Being of Service/Employees/Pets
Sagittarius: Creativity/Children/Love Affairs
Pisces: Values/Earning Power/Possessions
As always, it is more important than ever to note the normal RE’s of any Mercury REtrograde passage. The surge that this transit will bring to your Aries piece of the Zodiac Pie is one where a regenerative force is being asked to occur. Rest assured, RElease will happen here. Initiations for the long-term within this section of the life should be held off until after Direct Motion returns, 23 April.
A huge tip as well, it is highly recommended to file your taxes before the 30 March. Being tax-time involves all too many details and getting things done right, and the signing of legal documents, communications here will be “blinded by Mercury.” Sending love and light now to all accountants to get through the petty annoyances that our Messenger will bring as he goes backwards over 15 April’s deadline.
Keep in mind, those events and situations that occurred after 16 March- fall under the approach of this REtrograde. We tend to start to see the things that will undergo reassessment emerge over these couple weeks. Equally before the shadow completes upon 08 May, you will see further opportunities for final adjustments that need to be made from all action occurring within the retrograde period.
While we are wise to avoid important decisions and ultimate new beginnings at this time, our activity and behavior while in REadjustment is imperative. We are meant to adhere to the most as we gravitate to the words that begin with RE, thus allowing us to take to up the actions of: REdoing, REassessing, REading, REvisiting, REjoicing, REaligning, REsting, REviewing, and by all means RElaxing!
The DO’s & DON’TS of Mercury REtrograde…
Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, & schedules to occur suddenly
Expect CHANGE: in technology & transportation mechanisms, all communications
Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
Spend time in the RE’s: RElax, REvisit, REflect, REdo, REcharge!
Gravitate to REsponding vs. REacting!
“Freak out” when changes come up
Rush: speaking, driving, doing anything!
