Mercury Retro To The Max

Jane Birkin on phone smokingThe Mercury Retrograde of March is not officially on for the whole of March but i’m acting like it is.  Why? Because this is going to be a full-on, crazy-bats Mercury Retro. It’s mostly in Aries. Mars, the ruler of Aries, is retrograde in Virgo, ruled by Mercury. It would be the worst possible month in which to start a war, a lawsuit, a renovation, an anything really.

Sign by sign rants re this impending scenario will be in the Horoscopes or the Daily Mystic email shortly but for now, do your tech stuff in Feb or April, expect over the top offers to roar in during March but you don’t leap at them in self-abasing gratitude or even vague interest and ideally sign nothing in March.  No contracts.

Please don’t email me to say you’ve already arranged to launch a space rocket or something in March and you can’t possibly get out of it so what should you do? I can’t possibly answer such queries….what can i say? Quintuple check the background/details/inner workings of everything, fix your Feng Shui, bathe in Mugwort and pray night or day?

Oh but it’s a strong vibe for dealings with Ex-lovers, especially male ones, this involving Mars, Aries and all.

Whoa. I have my Sun in Leo, and have just recently been enjoying the clearing of the brain fog and feeling like my old self. Then I read that things are about to get a bit sketchy – Mars is in my first house, square Mercury AND my midheaven. Mercury is in Virgo in my 9th house. I’m thinking March is going to be a curious month…

Exes have come out of the woodwork in the past two weeks already … And not amicable “we just broke it off because we realized we weren’t right for each other” exes, either … Knock down, drag out fight exes, and an alcoholic ex thrown in for good measure.

Guess it’s gonna be a crazy March.

solar radiation, hide your hair and body shape, cannot hear the self promo rant on the ‘been thinking about you, now I will talk about myself for an hour” through face screen, I’d also like one made out of cardboard so when I walk off to do something they will be so caught up talking about themself that I can micro manage something else for an hour and come back unnoticed without punishment

We’ve also got a few Merc Retro born bloggers here…you might find some reference in archives but not sure where they were posted. Anyway, they’re supercool people and being born Merc Retro has given them unique gifts in understanding and communication. And just think, a Neptune in Pisces child, too xx

What does mars/aries type mean? My ex has sort-of popped up lately into my life and just wondering how exaclty this fits in…
Me – sun in virgo, libra rising, mars in libra, Him – sun in scorpio, venus in virgo

Does the ‘exes’ also include ex Prime Ministers who seem to be wanting back in the Lodge?

And is it possible that KRudd’s astrologer told him that he had better move last night or else he would not be able to move till April, and who knows whate/where we will all be then . Further into the zap zone at the least.

Thanks for the heads up. I have some things on my to do list to deal with… my computer now! The fan is broke. My taxes…mars will be retrograde in my 8th. just checked on my disability….still pending and they don’t need anything. Now I do not expect an answer till April. as far as exes….the mars type scorpio exbf already stays in contact. HE is all super sweet peaches in cream, offering to help me….Never a mention of romance, thankfully.

No thanks to any of my exs, there’s a good reason they are exs. The ones I am still friends with are ok, but still in contact anyways with me. The Martian influenced ones aren’t welcome though.
Going to do some mojo affirmations to keep the far, far away.

Yuktastico. Is this going to be more or less horrific than the Merc Retro of March/April last year because that was nuts? Can I just say that Mars Retro can kiss my behind, as a super Martian I’m feeling it in every conceivable way. No real ex haunting yet and I don’t expect there to be, a slightly naughty but uncomplicated recycling of a Libran lover last week but only to distract myself from the total AWOL-ness of complicated but much adored Virgo. I’m in the brace position for heartbreak. I used to be so dismissive of people who claimed… Read more »

You know I’ve heard that the mind speeds up as we age. You know how when you were a child that summer seemed to last a really long time and now a month just flies by? Some people say we “record” more to memory when we first start out. I attribute that to falling in love faster and dumber than I have ever fallen in love before.

Charley
Charley

That is such a wonderful way of looking at it and I think you’re probably right. I still feel kind of bad for being so dismissive.

I was discussing a period of time with an old friend a few months ago and we were sure it must have been years but it transpired that it was actually 4 months. A life defining era that was in fact no longer than a summer.

Oh I’ve been there myself C with your same regret. I remember back in grad school that I really disliked this woman in my lab who was 40 y.o. and always hitting on my 27 y.o. bf.

Well time is a human construct so it does’t mean a lot in the long term. I try not to get so caught up in it. :/ And yes, if you can’t get hurt what’s the point in playing the game? Bet it all or go home I say when it comes to love!

Mercury will be Retro in my 12th house (that house is a little crowded for me these days..) right before it touches my ascendant (8Aries).

But I’m not too worried because it will create some nice aspects – opposing my natal sun, trine nat. Uranus.
Squares my MC, but so is Uranus these days, so I guess that effect will just amplify…

Just got to get all my work stuff lined up, make sure schedules are clear, etc..

I don’t have any planets in Virgo, but considering my Aries ascendant, I’m probably affected by the Mars Rx, too. Could be worse 😉

and Kev a virgo n’all…Julia a Libran i think? For her – Mars retro in Virgo = hidden enemies circling. My bet? Kev loses bigtime, if the traditional view that those who make moves to stir up trouble during Mars retro’s lose holds true in this case.
Personally, I think the fact that it all makes Abbott a certainty is the real tragedy here. But then that is a conversation for a different blog…

harp + eagle
harp + eagle

hey Fi, so true, have been reading Mystic’s pointers that it’s not good astro to go into battle unless your hand is forced and you do so to defend yourself. It’s a good time to shut up and work hard.

Julia being a Libra would put Virgo as her Solar 12th house which makes your point about hidden enemies lurking in 12th, even more compelling. Mystic’s scopes indicate Libran’s should do 12th house stuff – meditation, retreat and reflect – for this trans.
Kev rearing his head seems indicative in the astro.

Kevin has venus and NN in Scorp! He’s been plotting and scheming this revenge for years.

Where IS Malcolm? Last time I saw him was on Q&A. Gee he looked cool in his leather jacket. 🙂 Would happily vote Liberal if Malcolm was leader. He’s a Scorp like Abbott. It will be interesting to see what happens when Saturn moves into Scorp.
Interesting times! I struggled to leave the house this morning listening to all the political commentary. My moon in Saggo loves it!! 🙂 I bet journalists are loving it too.

Yes, a great distraction. Though listening to Kevin makes me want to throw my phone at the TV. interesting how safe they seem to feel re the situation to be openly trashing him.

I mean Saturn in Scorp from Oct will be on her asc.

She has Sun on MC, NN conjunct Uranus near MC or 9th I think = destiny/NN to become thrust into public in an unusual or unconventional way/Uranus, is my interp. of chart. I guess we’ll soon see how current events will play out.

Its the latest addition to the Ex list, that is prob most likely to go retro… He has Aries Rising with his natal Mars right on it and Moon in Virgo (Saggi Sun). He also has his Solar Return Pluto in the 7th which makes for some rather strong compulsive behavior… & he has… Read more »

I’m going for the exxes getting in contact again.
I don’t fall in love very easily, but last year I had this incredible THING going on.
We never had a relationship in the common sense, but it was/IS a soulmate kind of thing.
Naturally very Plutonic (I can’t do otherwise).
Complicated, also because he’s 23 years younger than I am.
Thanks to great Retro Mars NOTHING has been happening for months.
On the OUTSIDE. But INSIDE lots of work has been done.
If we take it one step further, it will have to be a commitment
