Currently Retrograde

Post by admin » Wed Jun 27, 2007 6:32 pm

Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury. I researched and understood these cycles according to their mathematical relevances, once upon a time. ...but now, :oops: am perhaps in retrograde mode... Or, they maybe relevant to 'no particular state of mind'. :roll: :? I dunno. So, accordingly, am recommending a very excellent book and writer on this: Erin Sullivan - "Retrograde Planets" Traversing the Inner Landscape, Publisher: ARKANA.

Mercury Retrograde Again

Post by admin » Tue Sep 08, 2009 10:52 pm

On the 7th September 2009 at 4:40 AM GMT Mercury turned retrograde in the 7th deg. of Libra.
Mercury in any Air sign is about relationships, and particularly so in Libra. Inevitably, there are the usual potential miscommunications and possible problems with contracts, so, be extra careful about what you sign up for during this particular 3 week period. Also, and again obviously, all close personal relationships need extra care, as words said may be easily misinterpreted as they're not likely to convey the whole picture or meaning of what the other person is actually saying.

Bearing in mind that at this degree, Mercury is in square to Mars in Cancer, perhaps it can be expected that some family relationship matters that have been fulminating/may have occurred previously, may erupt again, or may surface, and be tucked back down for the time being. So, it's probably a good idea not to try to mislead any family member, and certainly not to just smooth things over - at least if that's all you want to do for your own comfort.

Mercury in its retrograde movement, goes back into Virgo on the 18th Sept. A comfortable place for Mercury of course, as it rules that Sign. So what it will be working on is the real and specific 'tangible' matters of life. Physical matters such as the maintenance of one's body/environment are re-emphasised, and in some cases, particularly any specific matters that occured during August.

When Mercury turns direct again on the 29th Sept. in the 22nd Deg. of Virgo it will, for a few days, be in sextile to Mars in Cancer, and perhaps some reparations, or breakthroughs with regard to this particular Mercury retrogradation, might occur.

Best to All ! :) and as always, would appreciate any response relevant to this. Thanks, and re this (as a reminder):

Uh ohh. T. Mercury is retrograde (26th May 08), and 3 weeks of muddled and misunderstood communications to go. But of course there's a little more to it than just this. The whole Mercury retrograde cycle in a particular element, lasts for approx. 18 months-2 years. This Air retrograde period started in Feb '08, in Aquarius, and lasts until Sept. '09, in Libra.

Erin Sullivan, in her book "Retrograde Planets - Traversing the Inner Landscape" (ARKANA, Penguin Books suggests that this set "allows opportunities to focus on the meaning of the relationships in one's life", not from an 'emotional' level (the realm of Water), but from a mental/intellectual 'assessment of the patterns' of one's relationships; the 'give and take' within one's way of dealing with, or experience of relationships. She says that it's a time for "airing old problems and thinking through involvements with friends, family and other associations...".

Clearly the need for clarity and focus is emphasised more than ever, as everything becomes more complicated, (or is allowed to become so), especially in the Air houses of one's chart, and particularly with Mercury retrograde in Gemini, in the house with Gemini on its cusp.

Good Luck with your undiscombobulating. "

A Current Mercury Retrograde Tale

Post by admin » Wed Sep 16, 2009 8:18 pm

This particular Mercury R. seems to be resulting in more havoc than usual, and here's one example:

A friend had invested in shares in a company , approx 3 -4 months ago. the company demanded that he pay considerably more money ( which was never made clear at the time he first bought the shares ). All of a sudden he was informed that he owed them $80,000 ! Similar demands were made on over 200 others in a similar position. Much discussion, fighting via lawyers & threats of litigation and bankruptcy ensued.

The day just prior to Mercury turning retrograde, as advised by his solicitor , he finally offered $40,000 to try and make the whole mess just go away - which was accepted almost immediately by that company. The very next day - day of Mercury's retrogradation, a newspaper article appeared reporting a legal judgement that was made the previous day regarding someone in a similar position. The judgement was that this person did - NOT - have an obligation to pay the monies demanded. As such the legal & financial community's are now of the opinion that - given the 'legal precedent' set by that decision - none - of those who had had the demands made of them - from this point on - would most probably have no obligation whatsoever to make - any - payment to the Company. He of course had just paid - He's now looking at his options to -try - and get his $40,000 back. :roll: :cry:

Hi!
The whole episode of investing money in shares and furhter troubles are spread over a considerable period running from months to years. How can the retrograde of Mercury, for that matter any other planet for a couple of days or weeks would continue the same matter so long. There is no logic in this. This is similar to Gochara practiced by Indian Pundits. All this come under what scientific astrology is not. The planetary configuration in a horoscope of the native cast for the date time and place of birth is fixed once for all and delineates the natives life from birth to end. Retrogression of Planets, planets nearing exaltation sign or sign of debilitation are some of the rules born out of defeatism. While some planets retrograde and some others advance or retrograde to their exaltation sign. A such it is sheer illogical. On the other hand, scientific astrology rests on astronomically correct horoscope and correct planetary periods for progression for astrological divination and timing of events. There is no substitute to this.
