Lets talk Mercury Retro-grade! Mercury is "The Messenger of the Gods," and represents critical thinking, duality (both male and female). It is swift and quick, both through the mind and the tongue. In the Divine method (Nostradamus Astrology), Mercury Rx usually begin 10 days before, and 10 days after what Modern Astrology states. Some of you may call this the"foreshadows."
Mercury is the planet of communication, use of words, computers, electronics, cars, trains, change in plans, transportation, motorcycles, mental process, broadcasting, radio, television, reading, writing, journalism, and curiosity.
When Mercury is in Rx motion, it forces all of us stop, slow down and be more observant and have more retrospect. This energy wants you to reflect and review back on the past several months and see both your failures and achievements; where you could have done better, made better choices, and be happy with the accomplishments you have made. Now is the time for planning and re-examining the areas of life you might have missed along the way. High spiritual study is very blessed right now.
The past always comes back to life in this phase. People from your past always seem to get in touch. Whether it be old friends, acquaintances, old lovers, estranged family members, or high school classmates. Enjoy it if it brings back happy, and fond memories but if negative it would be best to steer clear and move forward.
The Do's and Do Not's of Mercury Rx
