Mastering Mercury Retrograde in 2020

SIGN UP NOW FOR YOUR MERCURY RETROSCOPE!

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 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.

Time to Thrive in 2018

APDM2018.SharitaStarIntentional Time for Forward Thinking & Long Term Plans

As Uranus Retrograde turns around at the 24th degree of Aries 02 January, we begin a rarer astrological period where all planets are in direct motion, and this year we have quite a run where no planets are seeking our reflection. Minus our regular Moon Void of Course time out passages, this is a very influential and important time to be well aware of our thoughts and how we are energetically focused upon the future.

Until Jupiter turns Retrograde at the 23rd degree of Scorpio 08 March, these two months are a powerful opportunity to be completely proactive concerning our abilities to understand our ambitions for our long term plans as we allow our mindsets to be extremely open to the new possibilities that are around us. There will be no better time in 2018 to explore, visualize and implement accordingly.

The strongest periods of setting our intentions will be in affect from:

16 January’s New Moon in Capricorn until 31 January’s Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in Leo, the year’s first waxing phase favoring beginnings.

15 February’s Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Aquarius until 01 March’s Full Moon in Virgo, the year’s second waxing phase favoring beginnings. This equally is a profound passage as Solar Eclipses grant us a longer term to find outlets for our future goals and aspirations for 6 months up to a year.

Be sure to follow what areas of life your personal beginnings are favored to start up by checking in with your LunarOScopes.

Remember to be well aware of how much our timing is everything all throughout 2018. Do you know about how Mercury Retrogrades, Mars Retrograde & Venus Retrograde will all be asking for you to be extremely mindful once we turn into the Spring for the remainder of the year?

What are your intentions? It’s Time to Set Them!

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

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?
