Mercury is in Retrograde  

Posted in ,

GAH!!!!!!  So NOW I understand why my life has turned upside down this month! Miscommunication with friends and lost someone very close to my heart (not to death, although he is dead to me, but I digress)

"As a rule, the planets are more emphatic during their retrograde phases, marking periods of seemingly inevitable or fated events that relate to their spheres of influence. By fated events I mean those that circumstances thrust upon us, rather than matters we have consciously decided to implement or resolve. In particular, unresolved issues from the past tend to rear their heads and demand to be dealt with. Retro phases present us with a series of events over which we seem to have little or no conscious control."
I suppose the demise of that relationship was inevitable and this Mercury retrograde finally made it all happen. *sigh*
"At 03:50 UT (Universal Time) Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011, Mercury the wise communicator—and universal trickster—turns retrograde at 1°12' Virgo in the sign of the Virgin, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! The retro period begins some days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until August 26, 2011, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac."
Things are supposed to straighten out around September 9th but until then--well, hold on to your hats!
Oh, and Blessed Full Moon today as well :)

Thanks for posting that info. A lot of things in my life have seemed a bit 'off' lately, especially in terms of communication and misunderstandings with others. Mercury in retrograde helps make some sense of it.

I had a pleasant Full Moon this month. DH, kids, and I did a house cleansing and blessing. Made things feel a lot clearer :-) Hope yours went well too.
