So let me set you straight on the ever popular topic of Mercury Retrograde. This is level one astrology, so this tends to be a topic that has grown quite accepted in the mainstream scene.
But my problem with the opinions of others spreading the Mercury Retrograde information is that it tends to come across as pretty negative and worded in ways that are doom and gloom. It tends to feel like fear.
There are only a few people who shout out a YAY about Mercury Retrograde, and I am one of them, so I would like to shed the light on what this planet wants you to know about this 3 times a year cycle.
First off, understand that no two Mercury Retrogrades are the same! There is not a cut and dry sort of description of what you can expect from this cycle as there are many factors such as the Sign Mercury is in, the Element the Sign is in, the Moon Phase that is closest to the initial Retrograde cycle, the placement of where Mercury is going Retrograde in your individual birth chart, the aspects Mercury is making to the planets in your birth chart and the aspects that are happening in the sky around the times of the 3 and 1/2 week period.
And that all creates a unique story for how each Mercury Retrograde Session will manifest. (more…)
