Quantum Mercury Retrograde

Star Wars Stormtrooper Humor

The rumors are for REAL. Mercury IS going to be Retrograde for basically all of Feb, just when we’re trying to get out schizz together for the Awe of April.

(That would be the Zap Zone amped by Mars-Jupiter, Eclipses etc – see the April Of Awe rant linked at the bottom of the Daily Mystic email every day this week).

It is Retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius – that has GOT to be weird, but kind of maybe alluring in a particles zooming around the speed of light, nano-spheric particles of genius, time-bending way. Like a madcap rom-com set in an alternative dimension.

I’m calling it the Quantum Mercury Retrograde and played right it is, in fact, the PERFECT prep for the rest of 2014. It comes back to that brilliant quote from the brilliant Sun-Plutonian Cancerian Hunter S Thompson:  When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

More, more MORE in the Horoscopes & Daily Mystic etc. But for a start, definitely don’t do any intergalactic space travel or Shamanic peyote crap in Feb.

Oooh the Astro Hack shed MAJOR light on this! Sooo fun, actually looking forward to it!!

What gives? I am SOOOoooooo Angry and argumentative today. Still Aqua cool, but all my speeches feel like I’m picking a fight – regardless of wanting to or not. Mercury / Mars square or something? Someone switched me to decaf without my knowledge? Or, I am suddenly hyper aware that I am surrounded by socially inept and societally incompetent plebs?

MOON VOID @25 SAGITTARIUS ! Would be it!

I have 6th house Aqua & 7th Pisces too. Weirdest thing this retro shadow. Saw the Winged Sandal motif at three different times over the weekend. Quite bizarre. Hope it’s not a scary retro.

Chrysalis

Merc is on my 6th house Venus right now so will go back and forth over my DC / Venus and 7th house Pisces sun/Saturn/Merc. I don’t generally have issues with Merc retros but always practise good Merc retro hygiene just in case. I will make sure I don’t sign any paperwork to do with my divorce until after the retro is done. I have been doing a major forensic analysis of my relationships through the Venus retro so perhaps this will continue through the Merc phase. It’s certainly been productive. An old love whom I haven’t thought about in… Read more »

Don’t be embarrassed Chrysalis. I’ve been going through almost the exact same issues!! – Chiron return in Pisces 2nd house, maybe? My natal Chiron is 14º, Chiron currently at 11º “forensic analysis of my relationships” sounds about right. Digging deep through the mud. Scratched record of thoughts “shoulda, coulda, woulda, why this, why that… 24/7 on repeat for entire Venus Rx. It’s been truly awful but also very illuminating and rewarding. I’ve learned more about myself, love / sex/ relationships during the past Venus in Cap (on my Asc) Rx than I have in my entire life! By the time… Read more »

Wow that’s huge stuff, Scorpy. Hard but worth it in the way that major Cap transits seem to be on Cap risings in particular. With Chiron in the mix there is bound to be some pain, but shiny and new sounds pretty fab 🙂

Scorpbot
Scorpbot

No… no pain, to be honest. No heartache or heart break anyway. Just sadness, lots of existential angst and humbling realisations…

I did break up with the Crab guy a few days before Venus Rx but only because i wasn’t in love with him and I couldn’t pretend anymore. He was driving me absolutely BATS – his Sun/Merc and Mars in Kataka squares my Sadge moon and opposes my ascendent. Heaps of other astro aspects that are not conducive for a long term relationship.

Wonder how Pegasus is going? She’s a Cap riser too.

Chrysalis
Chrysalis

Ugh that’s too much friction (of the wrong kind). I can’t see your Sagg moon doing well with all that Kataka.
Interestingly my niece has a Sagg moon and Cap rising. She partied her way through Neptune squaring her moon (she called it turning 18 lol) but has suddenly started working two jobs and staying home to save money and pretty much has a spreadsheet of qualities she’s looking for in a suitor. She’s Gem sun and happiest when working her Cap hard. It grounds her.

jeez Louise, listen to this Chrys….you know I went to get divorced last week….well, the magistrate said NO!

My solicitor missed a page and my ex didn’t sign the papers because they got his name wrong.

So it was adjourned to Feb 10. FEB 10!! Fuq.

Anyway, it will still be right, won’t it? Won’t it???? because it IS the review? or something 😯

Oh fuq!
Now, deep breaths…yes it WILL be right. Getting rid of a toxic ex is totes Zap Zone compliant xxx

I’ve been happily out of drama for a while now. Thank goodness. Made a choice. Walked away. Now my mind is on overdrive to get things done in terms of all my trainings, making more money and professional opportunities. Grab while its hot. I gotta walk the talk, because I’m talking a lot with my 16 yo daughter these days.

Merc Retro? I’m just navigating the hell that is venus retro.. cue the Bionic Cancer trying to make sure our friendship can come with benefits. I’m like, really? Seriously? It’s so annoying when someone you feel could possibly have the depth is well.. stark raving mad. He’s arguing/lobbying for this as he feels it will work for us.. meanwhile he’s been going on first dates (so have I btw but not at the same rate he is), slept with yet another friend whom he says didn’t work out as she wasn’t emotionally responsive while still plotting to tell this married… Read more »

better yet, my question should be, how do I go pro with this? since it’s definitely weird.

I dunno about merc retro, but venus retro has sure been really great for that type of retrograde reflection so far. Merc retro is usually less of a biggie since I have a merc retro in pisces natally, my brain is naturally pretty foggy and not very straightforward

Merc rets in Pisces and Aqua! Quantum! Oh boyo. I do hope it’s fab. Pisces stuff always seems to effect me strongly (have it rising).

Holy Painstaking Ordeals Batman … it’s in my 10th house. It backtracks over my MC. And just as I was getting the hang of appearing less weird, now I have to go back to weird again. *sigh* It’s really quite tiring all this retrograde business. I wish the multiverse would make up its freaking mind what it wants from me. Does it want me to follow this new career path?? Does it want me to be a single social worker cat lady like Judging Amy’s mum?? GAH. I just want to go —–>>>>> FORWARD. In other (excellent and very good)… Read more »

At least you’re moving forward in the luurve department. Clarifying what you want and what you will no longer put up with. It’s the first step towards calling in that perfect guy, right? And in the meantime, single social worker cat lady is a good identity and nothing to be ashamed of!

Have to admit I had higher hopes for Pluto in the 8th though, honestly. Patience, I suppose. Blaaaah patience.

I don’t think I’ve ever wanted, needed, a mercury retrograde more. All my future plans are up in smoke; things that mattered a few months ago are laughably shallow and meaningless now. I’ve spent the last few weeks in the thickest fog, refusing to think about anything beyond the most base emotionality. There was a definite snap in my brain and neptune’s separating square to my ruler mercury took over. But! The other day, mercury went into shadow on my MC (where it will go direct- 10th house all the way, baby) and I saw a glimmer, which expanded into… Read more »

I recall we had similar astro/career plans … so what you up to now then?

It’s not so much that the career has changed, but the setting. I was planning to take the easy route, I guess. Small hippie town, easy state school, blah de blah and that’s how I felt about it! Then realized that hey, if I’m trapped in this state, I can go somewhere I want to go for ME. So the new plan is to go to excellent school and move to San Francisco. Scary and worth it… I’ve been a city girl without a city for waaay too long. Plus, when wanting to work with the homeless, SF is pretty… Read more »

Also it gives me a year to get a couple of certifications, get my affairs in order, and homeschool next year my spaz gem daughter who has never vibed with traditional school and who is going to officially flunk 4th grade. It’ll be so good for all of us. And if the crab can get to a point of independent living, there are a million services for him there.

Sounds great! though San Fran caught my eye. Just read an article on the Guardian yesterday or so that most people can’t afford to live there anymore because Google employees have pushed the rental sky high. Apparently there are all these campaigns against the google private buses that they operate to ferry them to and fro.
You might already know about it all, but just thought I’d toss it out there.

hdq

huh, interesting. yeah, rent is astronomical, but i figure if i’m going to go into debt for the first time in my life (pluto 8th zz is having some weird paradoxical effect on me), it may as well be worth it. 😉

Funnily enough I’m thinking of going into debt for the first time in my life too.
Just need to make some changes, had enough of what I’ve been doing!

Wow this sounds like a really good plan hdq. You seem hopeful for the first time in a while. I know the ZZ has been hard on you recently but this is like you harnessing all that cosmic power to fuel a bold new direction. Good luck with it all xx

thanks, chrys. 🙂 it only takes the tiniest drop of hope to make a difference. and it feels right- the process stripped so much away, so much doing for and about others, that at the core of it all was me. 🙂 mars on my nn today. time to move forward (oh yeah, merc rets! ha that). or at least time to remember the dance moves. xxx

Oh my goodness, I can’t even worry about Merc Retrograde right now, because I just got hit with the most intense Love Zombie bender I’ve had in a long time, Facebooking my exes to find their birthdays so I can figure out their astro — and letting myself be driven CRAZY by the fact that I can’t find the birthday of my first boyfriend, the other great love of my life before my husband. Had really not been suffering too many symptoms of Venus Rx until just now. Need to snap myself out of this! I did, however, learn that… Read more »

As for retro Mercury, it will be transiting my 7th house natal Moon-Merc-Sun conjunction, with moon in Aqua and Merc-Sun 0 Pisces. Merp. Hoping that doesn’t make things too weird at home, especially with this 5th house Venus Rx Love Zombie vibe I’m getting. *sigh*

Oh my God, you guys, I just broke down and signed up for a free trial with one of those people finder sites so I could look up his birthday! Turns out he’s an Aries, like my husband. NO WONDER.

Anyway, I feel both better and deeply ashamed.

Chrysalis
Chrysalis

Erm… is it wrong that I have read your post and my first thought was ‘there’s a site like that, I must find it’ ????
Sorry – I laugh gently with you as a fellow Pisces for whom ‘research’ is a core competency 🙂
It does get to that point where the horrible feeling of lack of self-respect is too much to bear. Best to move on, forgive yourself and know that you probably won’t do this again. xx

basically this is mercury doing its delving in my 12th. So having to chuck out all those old skeletons and dusty bones I’ve been hanging onto with the hope they would miraculously come back to life. Dig about in my secrets, stuff I don’t want to rummage in again. I take it as a big clear out of the attic Must say though, this past few days have been mega. Felt a deep shift in stuff on Saturday and yesterday just put it into practice. Have told an old lover it is time to go as it was now over… Read more »

I’ve been having busy dreams lately but wake unable to remember them. I do recall in one I was in an office/work situation and the HR woman told me I couldn’t keep my cat there, so I told them to bugger off and left with my cat. I remember thinking how calm and patient Arlene (my cat) was in my arms as I walked. Then, I was coming up an escalator in a mall, toward a big store, and I realized my cat was no longer with me and thought “what’s the point of leaving to be with her if… Read more »

Retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius! All over my Sun, IC, NN, Venus?? I can honestly say i don’t think two weird people need further “mad cap rom com set in alternative dimension” astro. But of course this is what we’ll get. I can hear myself growling already from the future. i am already experiencing VERY odd encounters with males. Truly insane. My fav one has recently referred to me as Dr Gonzo, however. Does that sound astro-positive..? 😯 Meanwhile, two old friends have referred to me as patient and sensible (!!!) and someone else called me a good listener (i’m… Read more »

Hi all, I need to register a new business name… Can any one offer advice, is it twee to run a few charts for ‘auspicious’ days? Or is the ‘official public launch’ more important? Online presence is partly established, it has been a gradual process. For example the current chart, for now, although there is that cardinal square is all linked by Jupiter – in Cancer – on the chart’s MC. Libra Asc, which – does this apply to ‘events- might mean an attractive and charming ‘face’ for the business. Mars is applying to it from the 12th. The Part… Read more »

Aquarius is my 8th House. Chiron lives there. Venus retro, sun and mercury, soon retro, is playing me like some old melody from 1984-87, … Nostalgia in buckets.. Sadness for lost friends, sadness and yearning for the things that failed. These are not common feelings for me, I’ve normally got my eyes ahead.
The pain in my chest is deep, nearly unbearable at times.
It all cascaded from a question I was asked on a previous thread about that time.
All oracles give no comfort.

Wow, DL, i have so been there. It was a giant processing factory and while i’m glad to have sorted some of it, it wasn’t no canned peaches factory. Be really gentle with yourself, and do things that are pampering for the body. There’s a grounding meditation thing where you root feet into ground, hold one hand on belly and one on chest, while you feel yourself connected to earth from feet up. Breathing, of course. Can take just a few minutes (or long time) but few minutes is good so you can rinse, repeat really often. My Chiron is… Read more »

Thank you for your support 12h, the above rings true.
Looking back is not my strong suit. The thing here is that I haven’t been digging or dredging consciously. Just found myself at the bottom of the pit. One I thought I had filled in many years ago.
Been reading your posts re: mr p. I hope my little astro twin (your daughter) is on board and happy with the situation. All I know is those posts are bringing a smile to my lips x

Hi davidl sorry you’re having such a hard time. Those grief pains are real physical pains and Mille’s advice to be kind to the body is spot on.
FWIW when reading your re-telling of those times in Sydney in the 80s on the other thread, your writing really brought it to life for me. I wasn’t there but I loved reading about it. I thought ‘wow I’d love to read more about this – what an amazing time’. I hope you keep writing about it either as useful process for yourself or maybe for a wider audience. x

my feeling and thinking was along the same lines, David now becomes the Mentor, crossing through a new threshold. Remember the Eagle/s on the beach on New Years Eve … was that the first call ? xx

I admire, respect and appreciate you so much on this blog David. You are a wise man indeed, and i’ve learnt once again through you, that no matter how wise and learned .. there’s always room to push through to more.

Rock on Man. xx
