AstroAlert: Mercury Retrograde starts in Gemini!
(post exploring several upcoming astrological events).
Hi all.. it’s that time, for us to blame everything that goes wrong on Mercury-retrograde :-p Seriously though, this coming Mercury-retrograde is going to be `tricky’ indeed (sorry sorry I’ll try not to get distracted with silly jokes).
But am not joking though. not a word of it so far.
Mercury rules Gemini (and Virgo).. and from tomorrow 29th May 2021- till 23rd June’21, Mercury will be retrograding in its own sign. Now initially this can freak out many people ( I include myself as one). but on a bit more careful thought of the overall pattern, I am led to believe (led astray? okay okay sorry).. that this coming 3 weeks is about to set us all off on a very interesting journey.
Because this is not jus about Mercury.. but as the cosmic magician and messenger, it/ he is doing something `interesting’.
We already have Pluto retrograding, and Saturn started retrograding too just a week ago. And as many hyped up online astro writeups have been saying, we’ve juts had the first of a set of eclipses. But that’s not the exciting bit (did I just use the word exciting and interesting, instead of crazy, disruption, excruciating?)
Already yesterday/ today I’ve had to deal with a lost parcel worth £112. (It’s okay after some calls, I got the parcel!). And Mercury retro hasn’t even started yet!!
As Quantum Mech states, observer is not separated from the observed. Likewise, an astrologer is never separate or immune from the forces of planets.. and we are humans too, and I put in some personal stuff to indicate that the planets affect me too.. and am in the trenches with all of you (`We are in this together’).
Back to forecast. As someone with Gemini-rising, I know all about the forces of Mercury retrograde affecting (assaulting?) my life :-p (I say all this in such a jolly way.. but wait a few days till we are all in it and my tune will change and I’ll be angst-ridden no doubt ). Ya see.. honesty ! Personal empathy !! 😉
So with Saturn & Pluto in retrograde, now Mercury starts too.. That’s already quite much. But that’s just the start .. sorry!
Just as this Mercury retro ends (22nd june), Jupiter-retrograde begins (21st june) and a week later Neptune-retrograde begins (26th June). We then have 2 months where .. there’s Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter & Neptune are retrograding. Uhhh 😦 And then Uranus-retro begins on 20th August.
No you can’t hitchhike out of Earth on a passing spaceship and run away to Andromeda!!
Each planet goes through a retrograde period every year. It’s unavoidable (except Mercury that does it 3 times, Venus & mars sometimes don’t).
Often in life, we speed through so many things.. and like a person going at 77mph on M4 who missed a turning and has to then keep going a bit more till we find another exit, then double-back via back-roads.. to find that missed exit/ destination.. sort it out..and then get back on track.. we are forced to do so …in life.. by the retrograde influences of the planets.
Don’t think of it as disruptions.. even if it feels that way.
Think of it as Recovery. Reconnect. Regroup. Refine. Rest. Recuperation. Re-imagine. Re-fuel. Retro-fitting. Realigning. (include Remorse. Restitution).
You get the picture now? !
As for Mercury retro.. think of it as finding the parcel that got lost 😉 Finding the path that you could have taken but didn’t and now have a chance to atleast consider.
Think of it as lost messages being found.
After all.. Mercury is the Messenger of the Gods!
Why would we ever think Mercury retrograde is `bad’?
Gods don’t mistakes.. do they?!
So let me go back (or forward, to events that have not happened yet).
the 3rd Mercury retrograde will happen between 27th Sept- 19th October!! Oh for crying out loud, we haven’t even started this one and am going on about the next one, I hear you exasperating?!
Bear with me.. am already under it’s influence :-p
That’s not a bad thing , as this is happening on my ascendant.. Either am way off the mark.. or the Messenger god is speaking sharply to me this time.. (and I’ve just had a lunar eclipse in my sign too).
So here come s the punch-line!
All the retrogrades we are beginning to experience now and in the coming months are all going to end ..bit by bit, around about the time the 3rd phase of mercury retrograde ends..
The mind-messenger planet is about to start a period of reconnections and reintegrations between us and other planetary energies.. that will culminate with the end of the next mercury retro.
We have no choice but to live through this.
And we should..
The world has gone through a crazy time with covid-19 pandemic, fears, lockdowns, deaths, laws, power & controls, conspiracies, protests and so much more.. in the past 18 months.. And what now follows is a cosmic opportunity for re-structuring.. Am not bothered by what the government is going.. Forget that.
This is a chance to work your power..
Oh did I mention that the 2nd part of the Eclipse is happening in 2 weeks, in the sign of …Gemini on 10th June, while ruler of Gemini (Mercury) is still retrograding?
Ah yes.. BANG!
There are no coincidences in astrology.
My teacher used to say, when the planets want to give you a message, they do so in 2-3 ways.
Mercury retrograding in its own sign of Gemini, while a annular solar Eclipse happens in Gemini.. is that message coming in more than one way.
That the final mercury retrograde happens in the sign of Libra – symbolising balance, just as all the upcoming retroplanets going direct after many months of summer.. is part of that message.
That then is the bigger picture ..in more detail and less hype.
What does it all mean?
Oh come on.. Have you not been reading what I’ve been just writing?
I only meant to do a few lines.. but look at this crazy long forecast-thingy that’s just spilled out of me..
Thank you Mercury – lord of magic and messages, mind, journeys and connections – without whom, we’d be just blobs of brain disconnected from bodies and lives.
And ps. this is the most unusual forecast I never planned to write.
Like I said, am under the influence too…and I teach by example.
So read all that am saying. Read between the lines.. 😉
