The chatty, gossipy messenger planet Mercury is on his way backwards through the chatty gossipy sign of Libra, where he will inspire us to RE-view and RE-vise our Relationship Stories from now until October 9. Be on the lookout for lies and gossip bubbling up to the surface of social encounters, as you'll be able to pinpoint the source, call out the liars, and finally put and end to rumors about yourself, your family, or someone close to you. Don't be surprised if your significant other has been loose-lipped about sharing the ins and outs of your marriage with an outsider... under the influence of Libra, Mercury knows no boundaries and keeps no confidences, so keep personal information to yourself and away from gossipy co-workers and false friends. If you are having marriage problems at home, think about the role you are playing in it... perhaps putting on a false front and acting like everything's peachy, when it's really not...
Aside from the doom-and-gloom we hear about retrogrades in general, making the most of this time is all about Intention and Expectation. If we expect something "bad" to happen during Retrograde, it will! Here at MHCI, we look at how to *Take Advantage* of this energy to come out ahead:
Good things that can happen during a Mercury Retrograde:
~ Money owed to you will be paid back (RE-payment, RE-imbursement)
~ Out of the Blue someone calls and apologizes for a past wrong (RE-conciliation)
~ Old, worn-out material items will suddenly be RE-placed or RE-paired
~ Good friends RE-unite to RE-minisce about the past
~ Legal cases may be RE-viewed and RE-solved in your favor
~ Outstanding debts may be RE-duced or RE-negotiated, home mortgages may be RE-financed
~ Investments may produce unexpected RE-turns
~ Friendship or Romance from the Past may be RE-kindled
~ Jobs up for RE-view may be promoted or granted a pay raise
What *not* to do during a Mercury Retrograde:
~ Take a different route to work or shopping than usual
~ Attempt to diet or change eating habits
~ Plan a long road trip or jet-setting excursion
~ Attempt to file or procure legal documents except for divorce or dissolution agreements/settlements
~ Buy a new car or other big-ticket item
~ Hire a new financial advisor or open a new bank account
~ Apply for a new job (now is the time to RE-search new job opportunities but don't apply just yet)
~ Argue with a friend, spouse, boss, or colleague
~ Pick up and transport a hitchhiker
~ Loan money to anyone (it won't ever be paid back)
~ Make Commitments or Promises to anyone about anything
Bonus Side Note: with Saturn in forward motion in his home sign of Sagittarius, the potential for Manifesting Unexpected Lucky Outcomes is *very* high. Go back and Ask for what was not previously given or awarded... you may even get double what you asked for 6 months ago. With Mercury Retrograde clearing away the competition and Saturn saying "It's Time to Get Lucky," windfalls of cash, property, and prosperity are likely to manifest for those who have done their Karmic Homework.
All planetary Retrogrades affect everyone slightly differently depending on our Astrological birthchart... www.alabe.com offers a fabulous Free Birth Chart calculator along with a brief chart interpretation for anyone who wishes to find *general* information about their personal astrology.
Mercury Retrograde will plod along for 3 weeks in the sign of Libra until Oct. 9.
