MERCURY RETROGRADE: The purpose of Mercury retrograde is to review and revise our life and our connection with reality. The timing of this universe is geared toward the Sun as it moves through the zodiac. Mercury has an orbit that at times gets ahead of the Sun allowing us to look into the future toward new and
innovative ideas. However, we cannot continue in that vein until we come back to the present designated by the Sun and put our new ideas into manifestation.
During the time that Mercury jumps ahead, we ultimately have to bring the ideas back into the
present to test and evaluate to see how they fit into our life. As Mercury retrogrades back into
The Present, the connection with the Sun happens as we test drive our ideas and re-align with reality
and the natural timing of the universe.
Mercury itself rules how we think.
- we will be adjusting everything related to thoughts, concepts, ideas,
- and communication, especially how technology and material elements play a part in
the physical manifestation of ideas.
When Mercury retrogrades, we find that many parts of our life are being revised. Often these revisions
can be a surprise or throw us back a step. However, these revisions which occur during a
Mercury retrograde, are a "course correction" and provide a stop gap measure until we can
During this time of revision, change is compounded and confusion is created by our reactions to the
ever-changing situations. Thus anything started during this time will ultimately be taken back
or even revised further, making for a high-frustration time. This will be especially true with
changing our minds, reviewing new ideas and our communication being improved and honed
so not to be mis-understood.
The best mode to be in during a Mercury retrograde is one of "non-reaction".
Treat the time period as a time of gathering information, AND because the information will
be in constant change ~ it would be like trying to comb your hair in a wind storm.
Best to wait until the changes stop before attempting to make things orderly.
Therefore, just let the winds of situations blow around you without reacting. Once Mercury turns
direct, take a look at the information that is still around at that time and go about putting everything in order, while maintaining the fine art of flexibility. [rubber legs ! ]
Mercury retrogrades have a cycle in which the retrogrades have an exactness of covering the same signs, the same degree many years later - Like today in 2014 ! ! ! !
Mercury retrograde, with the seemingly chaotic and confusing situations we experience during the
retrogrades, may not really be so chaotic and confusing.. .. ..
The exact Mercury retrogrades we will experience in 2014 were the exact same signs, same
degrees and approximately the same calendar days of 1935. This cycle is seldom talked about in the
astrology world, but is the cause of major course corrections for humanity. We can look back at history
of 1935 to see the impact of Mercury retrogrades covering the same time frames, the same signs
and the same degrees. We are coming to an important time as was experienced in 1935.
Few people are old enough to recount the transition of that time, but it becomes history repeating
itself to give us a chance to grow as humanity, as a society and to make a difference.
The Planet of Mars also follows this same cycle and the sequence of Mars combining with
Mercury's influence of ideas and attitudes and Mars brings these ideas and attitudes into action.
The phrase "thoughts become things" certainly brings home the combined energy of these
two planetary connections.
The changes that occurred back in the days of 1935 bring us to a time when we are looking
at the same issues. These issues are setting the stage for the important Mercury retrograde
cycle that is also relevant to similarities in 1935. Uranus was square to Pluto, which occurred
at the same time, and which is experienced now in 2013, 2014, and 2015. It is important to
understand that the cosmic clock has the timing similarities that we see in the outside world.\
Few realize the importance of correlating the statistics with events in the outside world
to the cosmic clock of the magnetic pull of planetary movements.
In 2014, Mercury retrogrades three times, all beginning in water element/ signs of Pisces,
Cancer and Scorpio, but retrograding back into air signs. [in Oct back to Libra]
Emotional issues have to be revised and updated to align more with our true inner essence,
intuition and awareness; which is the purpose of water element/ signs
2014 is a SEVEN universal year, requiring that we come into understanding about our true inner
status and becoming aware of the intuitive essence that is the foundation of our core concepts.
7 as a year number is the battle between Total Trust and Show Me - the Doubters.
Our feelings, listening to the calling of our heart through intuition and awareness,
our inner connection to the Divine becomes the terrain that must be reviewed, revised
and infused with spiritual growth, love and awareness. Mercury brings important information,
which bubbles up to the surface as we accept the inner call to explore the inner aspects
of our spiritual essence. The inner calling of our heart feels uncomfortable to some
as there is a concept that it is depression or something is wrong rather than to understand
that the inner call is through the feelings, perceptions of spiritual awareness and
The power to see and feel our true inner essence provides awareness of a larger world
that exists inside that has access to all other worlds. The power of awareness allows us
to make the inner connections and changes prompted by self realization and
spiritual growth. These areas reflect the transitions that are happening within.
Aligning the calling of our heart with changes of attitude and awareness is the theme
for 2014 Mercury Retrogrades.
