Re-do, re-clarify, re-write, re-edit, recall, re-word, re-travel, re-schedule.  The RE is back!  Mercury Retrograde time is here!  It’s time to communicate with your inner self as this is prime reflection time until February 1st when Mercury/Hermes starts to move forward again. 


If your Sun, Moon or Ascendant is in air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius, you noticeably will be affected by the emotional energy over the next three weeks.  The rest of us will have moments of our day which will be influenced by the Mercury moving backwards or retrograde in this air sign. 


Empower yourself and use the Moon energy wisely!  I’m grateful for Mercury retrograde three times a year cycle.  Mercury rules communications of all sorts and empowers us to see what type of communication we feel empowered by.  It is the time of writers and deep reflection on the messages you give to others.


I do not believe God, Creator, the Universe, the ONE has anything happen by mistake.  No we are given this gift three times for three weeks a year to slow down the chaotic rhythm in our lives.  Instead of spinning your wheels and trying to go faster, go on vacation, hug a tree, journal, reflect and enjoy the rhythms of nature once more.  Use this time to listen to your heart, your soul, your spirit.  Be creative and right brained.  Make music, write poetry, be super artistic.  This is your time … just you and the flow of inner universal energy.  Re-vel in it.  Find the joy in it.  Seek the happiness in this gift of three weeks of time three times a year = 9.  Now this isn’t a coincidence either, but I truly do not know much about numerology.  So hopefully someone else will interpret that for us.   


Yah but you have to do things over and over again.  Oh well, live with it.  It needed to be improved upon anyway. The challenge of this particular Mercury retrograde is that it occurs first opposite the Full Moon in Cancer.  That suggests to me that we will have to be very clear on messages we make or give to the people in our family and extended family.  There will be all kinds of mis-takes, mis-interpretations, missed opportunities otherwise.  Since Mercury goes retrograde through Aquarius then through Capricorn, we have to re-learn those messages he has been trying to give us.  Those have to do with humanitarian causes, foresight, and practical problem solving.  We still aren’t clear on what we as a global race must do.  Nor are we clear on what we should do within our own communities and homes on these issues.  So we are forced to rethink our original solutions. 


You think you have it bad?  Think of all our political leaders.  All the forward thinking ideas they want to advance during this next 3 weeks will have to be redone and revisited.  Obama wants to hit the ground running after his inauguration, but instead all his well thought out plans likely will run into all kinds of roadblocks that for some reason he and his team just didn’t think about.   Harper wants to bring down the budget for Canada and stay in as prime minister later this month.  However the house next sits during Mercury retrograde, so all kinds of mis-interpretation of communication will occur. 


Do not invest in the stockmarket during Mercury retrograde.  It will continue to fall until after February 1st.  Besides, anything you buy during Mercury retrograde, you re-think about after the retrograde period and you aren’t quite so in love with it.  Do you have to make phone calls?  Be prepared to call them back over and over before you connect.  If you do connect right off the bat, ensure they repeat what you said and follow up with the information in writing.  Someone will mis-interpret otherwise.  Problems with your transportation systems?  Make sure your vehicle is well tuned up.  Allow extra time anyway.  You might miss your exit, miss your connections, miss meeting the person you were supposed to meet.  Problems with your internet connection?  Oh yah, make sure your anti-virus programs are up to date.  Problems with your computer?  That’s the way it goes my friends!  Do not initiate anything.  For heavens sakes, do not sign any contracts. Forewarned is forearmed! Say some extra prayers for patience for yourself every day!


Reflection Questions! 

  1. How patient are you?
  2. Are you prepared for 3 weeks of inner reflection?
  3. How can you ensure your message is very clear?
  4. How can you ensure the message you receive is what is really intended? 


Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to be very clear with people during Mercury retrograde periods.
