Let me tell you right from the start, I get a gleeful delight when I hear people say, “oh no, not again.” As I hear, “not again”, this seems to indicate that “mean Mercury” is about to strike, and make things fall apart, yet again.
Actually things fall apart when we haven’t been paying attention (perhaps the computer is down because you need to rest at a decent hour).
It’s a good time to assess what has value and meaning in our lives, and daily activities. How and what we communicate is spotlighted. Mercury is the planet of communication.
So, “Mercury the Messenger” is here to deliver a personal message. Where in your chart “Life Map” is retrograde Mercury parked right now? Since Mercury is in Virgo, a sign that it rules, there’s a highlighted message.
A retrograde time is a wonderful opportunity use the 3 R’s:
Virgo is the earthy sign for connecting, organizing, and bringing clarity to our lives in specific areas of work, health, service and self understanding.
When Mercury is retrograde, it is advisable not to start totally new projects. This is a good time to give assistance to others, and take time to really revise and develop ideas that may have been sitting around for awhile.
For the other Earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus, Mercury the Messenger, brings ease and flow to whatever you are doing. Just maybe you’ll receive a bit of “gold” from a project or idea you started a while ago. For us watery, air and fire types, we need to take some time to use the three R’s.
For all of us, it’s important to bring a bit of playful activity into the mix. This is a powerful time to take nature walks. Your Mercury in Virgo will appreciate you for your thoughtfulness. From this time on, you’ll be saying, “I love these Mercury Retrogrades.”
Remember the 3 R’s
