Slowdown or Communication Meltdown?  You get to choose!  Life is shifting into slow gear from September 7th – 29th when Mercury goes retrograde during its routine life cycle of three to four times per year.  Are you feeling the effects already?  That’s because it takes a wee bit to turn that Mercury locomotive around.  So Mercury is slowing down and will come to a standstill before September 7th.  For any purists out there, Mercury does not actually slow down, but transforms itself from evening star to morning star during the Mercury retrograde.  In other words, right now Mercury is travelling behind the sun, rising after the sun does.  After the retrograde period is over, Mercury travels ahead of the sun, rising BEFORE the sun.  So Mercury is the ultimate communication and travel transformer. 

 

Think about it!  Shape shifter!  Mercury is changing from the end of its old cycle purpose or the wintery evening of its life cycle to a new and improved communication expert in the birth or spring of Mercury’s new life cycle purpose.  Mercury renews itself three to four times a year and drags you kicking and screaming along with it.  Locomotives have the power to do that. 

 

Yah but you don’t like it?  Too bad, so sad.  This is a time when you will be forced to revise, re-edit, re-new, re-negotiate, RE everything in your life that has to do with the written or spoken word.  RE everything that has to do with communication … re-dial that number honey!  But you are on hold?  Re-dial again.  Either put your life on hold and take a vacation for 3 weeks or work with the Mercury retrograde energy wisely

 

But you want to get a new car?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  But you want to buy a new computer?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  But you want to sign a contract for a new anything?  Don’t do it during Mercury retrograde.  Most things you do that have to do with communication and travel you end up either waiting in line, or having to redo, redesign, or just plain give up in exasperation.  Hello!  Mercury is busy doing his huge shift from the end of one cycle to the beginning of a new cycle.  He simply doesn’t have time to deal with your detailed list!  He’s transforming from Clark Kent to become the new Superman when he is through!

 

Empower yourself and use the Mercury-Rx energy wisely!  I’m grateful for Mercury retrograde time.  It is a super creative time.  It is time to do deep inside to dredge up some of your most insightful thoughts.  It’s a time of great inside illumination.  It’s a time to slow down and think!  Shine that searchlight inside yourself!

 

This Mercury retrograde begins at Libra, an air sign.  So expect all kinds of balance issues to come to the foreground.  Yin-yang. Politicians and others will begin this period by discussing how to balance budgets due to the economy.  They will also try to figure out the balancing act between hiring people and firing people (translation:  getting senior members to retire willingly).  Libra also stands for being super charming and full or airy thoughts, so some of the “answers” people will come up with might not be very practical, but they surely will sound terrific.  When Mercury goes backwards into Virgo on September 19th, the focus will shift to how to balance the act between health care matters on a global scale and getting people to respond positively in a personal way. 

 

Since Mercury retrograde is a global phenomena, notice how all of a sudden there will be the discovery that the HINI vaccine either isn’t working or there isn’t enough of it.  People in the health care industry will be scrambling since their plan is not working as they had originally intended.  This can get more than a little stressful with Mercury retrograde in Virgo quincunx the stellium of Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius.  Show no fear and take your own health care precautions!  Yup, stay out of the fear energy that others around the globe will be generating.

 

Yes, shift is here and coming to your train station soon.  Now that you know the rest of the story, start preparing for your slow down.  Don’t get frustrated, but be grateful every day for the new lessons that Mercury is bringing to you.  Be very clear in your communication of any messages with people.  Follow it up in writing so you have the documentation you need to use when Mercury goes direct at the end of September.  Hold off on getting your vehicle fixed.  Try to make your train or plane flight to wherever prior to the retrograde period or be prepared for delays.  In other words allow for tons of time before you have to be somewhere. 

 

Your other alternative to all this shift in thinking?  Hibernate for the next three weeks.  Hmm, seems to me that’s what bears do when their world shifts from winter to spring.  Maybe the bears have a wise plan?  Hooray for the Mercury Life cycle!

 

Laugh-a-lot for a happier life!

Dance in the Pluto shift Moonlight!
