Is Mercury Retrograde A Poltergist?

Three Of Clubs Steampunk Girl

Mercury Retrograde in Pisces is many things, right?

Mercury Retro in the multi-facet-friendly sign of the Pisces has to be basically omni, yes?

It’s not just the Mer-People being affected by this thing. It’s a Love Zombie Trigger – cue flash yearnings for things from the past, ghosts and echoes. It heightens the chances of serendipitous encounters and also omens/messages in everyday life.

It’s also an infuriating transit for things to be lost in the most surreal, ridiculous way possible. I’m talking like you literally see something on the bench or whatever and then wham, it’s gone.

It’s like it is the Anti-Virgo. I went to check a date from last year; nearly everything in the past calendar on my iPhone is deleted. It leaves some dates and appointments there, but basically the past is obliterated. And as we all know, that’s totally Piscean.

But the shit disappearing in broad daylight, there one moment and apparently in a surreal alternative dimension now? In the past week, i’ve lost a colander, a hoodie, a blender lid & two halves of performance sock pairs. Lol at the latter but this is messing with my Zap Zone fitness bender and forcing my consciousness to be less Virgo, more Piscean.

Is this you as well? Is Mercury Retrograde a Poltergist?

Yep totally a poltergeist. Losing my old thought patterns and naff laziness.

Definitely agree Merc Rx is like a poltergeist. Shit goes astray and its probably best that its gone really. Amazing how once I’m aware of his going AWOL three times a year I palpably notice how much more stressy other people get around me, especially when it comes to

1. Foot in mouth disease
2. Electronic device angst
3. Interpersonal meltdowns

I like to think Mercury is putting up his hot little winged heels in Bermuda somewhere smoking a nice fat one. He certainly deserves regular breaks from the neurotic humans.

Not sure if making my first comment during Mercury Retrograde is the thing to do or not, but I got inspired to subscribe by the “Tell Me Everything About Libra” post (no, I’m not her!), so here I am. 🙂 I’ve been noticing a few things going missing lately — important papers, socks, the tv remote (five times in two days), even my purse at one point — only to turn up in plain sight the next time I walk through the room. I have Virgo in Venus, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto and NEVER lose anything, so am happy to… Read more »

I read this article when MM first posted it – and didnt think much of it. This morning however, something strange happened. When I was in my dream state, I became aware of waking reality – being in bed, in my room, with my plushie doll laying between my ear and right shoulder; I mean, this is the kind of thing that usually what happens as we wake, right? But what was strange was that I distinctly remember my doll feeling like it was being tugged towards my back, and I thought I heard what was the beginning of my… Read more »

I am forever losing jewelry, but reckon it always happens for a reason, like some sort of sign. Anyway, my best turquoise necklace disappeared as soon as Merc went retro. Hopefully it turns up.

Otherwise this has been an awesome, creative, fateful Merc Rets. (Pisces rising>?)

I think you are making a local event macro, Meg. Not saying that Merc Retro in pisces doesn’t add to paraormal phenomena but what u describe is classic trickster-spirit possession stuff. a sprite / earth element / mis-channeled energy of any kind will do the stuff you describe. its frightening but not astro. it is also not too difficult to undo, normally, with the aid of some salt, a sacred circle, sagebrush and an open, focussed mind. just look up wiccan cleansing rituals online, should sort u out… and since its a waning moon (i think) you don’t have to… Read more »

I’ve literally lost days–ie, my calendar! I write everything down in it, since being a Sag, if I don’t wite down appts/times I’ll show up on Sag time not everyone’s time. *ugh* That’s about the extent of my Merc Retro “norm” afflictions. Everything else has been very beneficial. My 4th (outta 5) pinched nerve finally released in my lower back. I can touch my toes again! I can finally go back to working out without pain. AND I finally lost my temper. Anger is theraputic as well as motiviational for me so…only good things ahead. 🙂

Add some medicinal herb to the mix and consider everything simple but important tangible thing to vanished to never land…

And my animals are hilarious when Mercury is RX. The cancerian dog who’s usually perky and alert just lays around pouting and my aries cat won’t stop jumping off the high bookshelf. Hoping to snap out of it? Hmm.

Having a strong Merc Rx so far. Reading the scopes it looks like the close proximity of Aries humping Mars is trumping everything atm. I’m extremely irritable at home though and bored bored. Funny, I still can’t get my gravatar to sync up. I’m no dummy, but I can already tell it’s something really obvious. Also, I’ve been having lights flicker off in the garage where I park at work. It’s probably timer related, but kind of cool. Haven’t had any desire to run with the old hobbies, friends, scenes. I want new, crazy, unpredictable action, a blind road trip… Read more »

I don’t have any of this except the Love Zombie stuff but honestly I think I’m in that state perma anyway, just entered Pluto sq Venus, lord help me. I’m one of those born with Merc RX and I swear it does seem to pass me by, aside from a particularly monster one in 2011 which got everyone in a tizz. Right now I can hear my housemate downstairs looking for a ring she’s lost, it was literally in front of us and vanished, no sign of it anywhere. So weird.

oh yeah mercury rx in full force here. Already a flat tire, wayward checks of money owed us getting lost in the mail (amazing how my money owed to people finds its way there fast but the other direction is slow), and just the other day my cell phone clock was reading the correct time but it was the WRONG DATE. I tried turning it off and rebooting but alas it was stuck on the day before. argh. I had put the wrong date on everything.

i went back to my north node conjunct sun and sextile neptune, ascendant-neptune aspects and there’s a lot of ‘creative pursuits’, ‘creative expression is your destiny’ blah blah, there’s also ‘travel abroad for a cause’ speak as well. I guess the mer retro is making me reflect on this because it puzzles me. ‘creative’ is broad, c’mon.

Well, got fired Wednesday, felt like a 7 year old afraid to leave my room, and heard from Uranian Scorp that night. He claims he hadn’t gotten a message sent months ago and said his crazy life will be less crazy soon. I let him know About my job and that I am done giving myself to situations that don’t want or need my talents. No love zombie here. Friday my keyless car key stopped working.

I was born during merc retro. Mercury retrograde has thrown up ye olde classic merc retro tricks … I scan things that can’t then be read, I turn up early to the wrong room, which sees me arriving late to the right room. I think my uni lecturer thinks I am really incompetent. At work, everything that could take an hour’s work or day’s work is taking at least two weeks, with the people due to give me something blaming the ones before them for it taking two weeks instead.

Here is another perspective on Mercury Retrograde by the Astrologer Rob Brezsny from Free Will Astrology. ”Uh-oh. Mercury’s retrograde. You know what that means: garbled phone calls, fouled-up travel plans, missed deadlines, embarrassing slips of the tongue. Right? Wrong! It makes me sad when the sacred art of astrology is turned into just another excuse to be superstitious. Using half-baked horoscopy to justify self-fulfilling prophecies is astrology abuse in the extreme. Sorry to get so riled up. I’m a little sensitive about this. I truly love astrology’s power to enhance our willpower, and it bugs me when it’s ignorantly invoked… Read more »

Thanks for sharing this. I def feel like I am being pushed to revise how I communicate my ideas and needs to others. I’m working on it consciously and the astro is really supporting my awareness. Also, I’m hoping to get a job offer on Monday and intend to take it if I do.

That’s also what I took from it. Instead of focusing on delays and frustrations, why not look at the way we might be creating these situations with our own ways of communicating and expressing our self. Re-trograde: Re-vising, Re-thinking, Re-shaping, Re-structuring, our methods of expression! Awesome!

I once saw astrology described as “applied poetics”. So in that sense it’s interpretive rather than predictive as such. Various interpretations of events, situations, characters etc can provide food for thought, a common language between like minded people… and yes, even some much needed levity in our musings about life. Will power, on the other hand, comes from within. I have never managed to muster it any other way.

I haven’t misplaced anything yet, but Merc Retro has another two weeks to go, so who knows?

This retro has started just on my Pisces ASC, going backwards to 12th house. I have revised my “to-be” list, rephrased several of its items. The projects are still waiting to be revised, but I can’t concentrate at all! And I am sleeping as if my life depends on it. With the 12th house now am escaping to my dream world.

And of course, Merc Retro throws up all sorts of past connections I’d rather forget. So far, the total count is six.

I “lost” my Scorp friend this afternoon. We were supposed to meet and I was late by 10minutes and I couldn’t find her. I even walked around the place. Best part? She messaged me earlier that “my phone batt is dying”.

The other friend I was meeting, a Piscean, was like “meh, she’s always MIA, let’s go to cafe, what do you want to eat?”

We met up with the Scorp later at the cafe because she had gone home first to charge her phone. -_-“

It seems to rain more frequently, and there are hundreds of little frogs chorusing at night.

Also, just lots of other weird ‘blasts from the past’, little symbols, songs, etc., showing up here and there… I usually get depressed during Merc retros, especially by the end, and I also go sort of ‘silent’, more inward, I guess.

That would be a really productive way to use the retro phase, flowerchild. I tend to forget about my Pluto-Uranus Virgo in 1st but it pulls directly at my sun stellium so it’s a constant battle. Mars is currently opp my natal Mars in Virgo so no wonder I am all over the place!

Oh, wow, having the Merc retro influence your 1st house stuff must be intense! ..esp. with Mars involved.

I would think having this retro influence the angles, like you have (Asc/Desc) and I have (MC/IC) would make it all the more intense and pronounced for us.
My Mars is EXACT conjunct my MC and my Pluto is a few degrees off my IC, in the 4th house.

Merc Retro HAS caused a few misplaced items. Lost be me in plain sight, found by others. There have already been TONS of miscommunications, as in people hearing the obsurd instead of what was actually said. Even my kids have noticed. It has SO helped me to know we have a whole month of this and to just go with the flow. I am just trying to be immaculate with work communications. I am feeling pressure to produce with speed but feeling the need to pay attention to detail. Trying to balance. And spell check emails 🙂

oh god, YES. I was wondering if it was a chicken-and-egg scenario (is my customary Piscean disorganisation worsening this? Or am I in fact being hampered by worse-than-usual astro conditions?

If I actually let everything that is going stupid in my life get to me right now, rather than attempt to deal with it in little tiny nibbles at a pace my mind can handle right now, I would soon be found in a corner, wrapped in an old blanket, shivering and babbling uncontrollably in a language no one could understand. *makes eye contact with universe* *resolves to keep going*

When was Merc retrograde last year? Similarly around mid March of 2012, a woman had a seizure at the wheel a two lane road, proceeded to swerve into my lane and plow into me head on. Had no time to react or evade, it was one of those oh shit moments for sure. The paramedic said I basically hit a brick wall at 80. Looking at the whole thing retrospectively, I now feel the astro significance, a very saturn/scorp moment where the universe forces you to recalibrate. And it’s been a extremely harsh and wide learning curve of a year,… Read more »

Thanks Gren & Pi Gren – I don’t know when the Merc Rx was but goodness that sounds awful! i agree that at times I’ve had serious accidents they have been sobering moments in the big picture….warnings? Luckily no-one was hurt in this – twas just a bingle, and my fault, but rain-soaked circumstances caused the person in front to do something unexpected at a roundabout and then just skated my car into the back of them. Will be costly for me I think, and I’m a few out of work months into my year of learning to live frugally….which… Read more »

So glad that you are okay calypso – I like your name and it’s one of my favorite moons 🙂 I agree, that it is a sober warning, or a shot across the bow. For me, my big costly lessons learned were from ego and making bold decisions without having much foresight or a dedicated plan. So now, I’m grateful to be without chronic injury, although there’s lingering muscoskeletal aches. Definitely have transformed into the better. That day was the start I guess.

yep, sounds like saturn at work 😉 still, I hope there’s some healing available for those lingering problems…

actually looks like I had a stroke of luck today….my mechanic has a car the exact same make and model as mine only smashed in at the back that he was deciding TODAY whether to fix or use for parts….then along I came needing the front panels. seriously. If this was the lesson I had to have then someone is sweetening the deal for me 🙂

I’m glad you like the Calypso moon Gren 🙂

Haven’t had anything go missing, in fact this is probably one of my best Mercury Rx’s yet, inspiration’s flowing, blog and social media renovation and revision’s all coming along beautifully, even went back to regular exercise and my intermittent fasting diet etc. except on one count: I haven’t been able to sleep. At. All. This is the worst case of insomnia I have ever had in my life! I haven’t been able to fall asleep naturally since the Retrograde hit and I’m slowly getting run down. It’s not like my mind is racing or anything, that’s the weirdest thing. In… Read more »

yes, my sleep a bit patchy, I wake at 4am and can’t back to sleep without reading for a while, at around 6, and I find I remember my dreams really vividly at 7:30 when I wake again

Plus one on finding it hard to fall asleep & stay there. When I do I dream about the past and it’s like being awake …

Yes, me too! I sleep thru the night fine but I always wake up hours too early, then can’t get back to sleep. Have also had 2 dreams this weekend about the same thing: a particularly difficult as well as growth-inducing job featuring my work crush from that time. I swear that he and I have astral visitations at times: our dream encounters feel incredibly real.

I’m with you Silver. My insominia is so bad that I’m nearly on a third shift sleep schedule. (Fall asleep at 6am/7am, wake up at 2pm). Thankfully I’ve got a flexible work schedule, but the insominia/sleep craziness feels out-of-hand.

yes, me too for insomnia which i unusual for me – but mine is brought on by using my sleep hours to get ahead and push open new doors with my work. I’m just going ape with working, working, towards better things, changes, and loving it, seeing progress and inner-confidence in particular.

Me too. Wake at about 3am and can get back to sleep till after 4. Listening to hypnosis app helps … Relaxes my body then my mind usually tags along … but not practical when I’m having a sleepover so just have to lay there and wait … and deal with the shadows under my eyes in the morning.

zOh – and new xcersize, new diet and I’ve never lust over working so hard in my life. I Love Merc Retrod-grade in Pisces x 10000!
(Part of me thinks I’m just from the Future, and then I think I’m in for a Huge Zapping in May and July – that’s when I’ll set fire to my old life and skin for good and all my hard work, confronting weaknesses will totes payoff. I’m still shitting myself at the steps forward I’m taking, leaps, but am gradually feeling more worth it).

This is great and so inspiring to read! I have also gained much of the new things in your list, even after getting zapped HARD for the last 3 mos: having to move, losing job, lost work Laptop at start of Merc Retro, have had car troubles, etc. It has been incredibly stressful but has also felt like a Saturn lesson: oh hey, you weren’t saving money, paying down credit cards and neglecting your car. Nor were you standing up to be a leader at work (that was the hardest lesson here). But now I’m on the verge of a… Read more »

Yes, and good luck to everyone! I am ready to overcome my work blocks and excited by the next opportunity. It’s always good to look at these stressful situations for the lessons to be learned, and evolve from them rather than let them get you down.

Nothing lost in another dimension so far (that i know of). However, walked into bedroom to find a crested dove sitting on my pillow, walked back out again in case i hallucinated it (Pisces Rising, Neptune MC, so sometimes i’m not sure if things that i see are really there at all). Walked back in and there she was, peaceful as anything just looking up at me. Let her out and know i didn’t make it up, as she left a little departing gift on my pillow. Hopefully good dreams tonight, as last night after watching Argo i had a… Read more »

Goldy, i always knew you were an animal whisperer witchy earth woman. This is fantastic! Birds just sitting in the house is always a really strange phenomenon.

Funny little dove – i suppose it is important to be comfortable and serene when taking a crap 🙂

Thanks Millie, I am a bird nerd for sure. When we go away it’s one of the first things i pack, my bird book. The Pisceans lovely Aqua daughter, who travels quite a bit told me after her last trip ” But you are the easiest person to buy gifts for, you like birds, socks, and folk myth stories” … this almost made me cry, as for years people have complained that i am impossible to find gifts for, and that gorgeous Aqua summed me up in one. xx

That’s so cool!!! Perhaps some kind of omen…I would be so excited if that happened to me.

Wow, I sound weird. But I’m kind of a bird nerd. Have a reputation for catching pigeons when they get caught indoors and confused by windows or in corners in the city. I used to have pet chickens as a girl and I loved them as much as my friends loved their dogs and cats. People think they are dumb but they have their own little personalities and quirks…I even trained one of them to ride on the handlebars of my bike!

Hey Rache,
We have one chicken left out of three, she comes inside about 3ish in the afternoon, and has her own chair. She also goes mental if the children start getting too rowdy. She’s a lovely thing, if only i could talk chook, as she sometimes come in with some great stories to tell us about her day. Great at alerting us to snakes too (she’s done this a couple of times), shes like a little wise old Granny. x I love your chook on the handle bars story, make a great cartoony/tank girl like art piece…x

Hi Cosmic.. there is a great book called Animal Speaks by Ted Andrews. It describes the spiritual meaning for each animal if they appear in our lives.

For a dove it mentions: KEYNOTE: Feminine Energies of Peace, Maternity and Prophecy

The first line says: The dove has a temendous wealth of lore and legend surrounding it. Most of it centers around all the traditional feminine and mother symbols. In the Greek tradition, Aphrodite was born from an egg brooded by a dove.. [there is obviously more]

xo!!

*sigh*. Missing THE ex.

Made the decision that I will spend the whole month in Hermit mode. Process feelings. Detox system. I figure this is a good month for it. All the Pisces will bring up the muck and emotions so I can sort through them. Then at the end of the month everything going into Aries… I can power out! Hopefully.

Still. Love Zombie mode is not fun.

You’re not a love zombie, babe… if you were LZing you’d be saying, ‘oh I’ve spent three days composing a text to him and consulted five tarot readers who all say we have a past life connection so obviously we’re meant to be together even though he can’t quite see it yet… he’s afraid of the intensity of our love.’ …. you’re so not like that! You sound very aware of where you’re at, wishing you weren’t, but being real nonetheless. Just missing someone isn’t a character flaw xx

WOOHOO
WOOHOO

I’m defs a LZ. I can see all the ways he didn’t treat me right, but given the chance I would not hesitate to take him back. My efforts in trying to forget him are matched by my wishing to have him back. Hoping he’ll apply and get another job back here.

Anyway, it doesn’t help living in this small town. I think I’m just lonely. I need to meet a new guy. So far talent is low in town.
