Love Under Mercury Retrograde

Filed in Uncategorized

ÿày

Dear Mystic,

Hope this finds you well. Two quick things: firstly the Tarot is brilliant. It is beyond spot on, thank you. Even picks out the fact that said guy (below) is King of Swords, every single time.

Secondly, how big a deal is it to fall madly in love when Merc is retro? I know it is supposed to be when you are mooning over your ex etc but I’ve met this man. He’s amazing. We just have this thing – you couldn’t script this stuff. But am mildly anxious that as soon as merc gets out of the shadow on the 16th it’ll all go poof… Does love that starts in a merc retro stand a chance?

The Fiery Taurean

Dear Fiery Taurean,

Thank you re the Tarot. Yes it amazes even me.

Now, there is honestly no rule that says you have to “moon over your ex” during a Mercury Retrograde. Or even a Venus Retro. And there is more going on than just Mercury Retrograde. The Zap Zone. Eros on Pluto, Mars-Mars-Mars. So unless you bought a dodgy bit of electronics off this dude, i think you’re sweet. If it is as good as you describe, why would it just go poof?

Technically, as it’s Mercury Retrograde, there could be information about him that you don’t yet know…a triangle even. But why not just relax and enjoy the endorphins?

The next Full Moon is super-fateful – square Mars on the North Node trine Venus. That should be definitive. Stand by for epic rant re this in the Daily Mystic. Just don’t try to clarify-delineate-elicit strong statements before that mid-July moment.

Try and just enjoy the ride! Even if it does end up being short term, it’s nice to those butterflies and have some fun companionship 🙂

Chapter 3: Pisces Dude the Short: I am still involved in the actions of the Pisces dude. He’s being very short with me, keeping his distance, but staying in contact with me. He comes in tomorrow but he hasn’t officially said “let’s get together”… not sure what is up. Although I am happy he’s in touch.. I am just wondering what act he is pulling. It looks like he’s nervous about something…

Chapter 4 hopefully tomorrow…

xo!!

Ok.. I had to check the dates for Mercury retro right now.. June 2 – July 2. He showed up again on June 22. I expect this Pisces dude to jump ship and fade away. He comes in on 7/2.. perfect timing..

And looking further I met the Pisces dude during the Mercury retro in February. When Mercury went direct on March 1 things got weird, troublesome and disconnected. So, here we are again.

A few years ago, I fell in love just as Merc went retro. It went poof just as Merc went direct. I’m not saying that this is what will happen to every romance begun at this time, as there could be other factors that affected the outcome of my short-lived romance, i.e., it turns out he is an idiot and we never should have gotten together, and so on. Perhaps my planets were transiting in such a way that I was susceptible to such foolishness, or perhaps my karma was to learn to be able to see a d-bag coming… Read more »

Hahaha well right now it all feels like a bit of an astrological experiment to be honest. Time shall tell. Sorry yours went poof. Although sounds like it was for the best in the end. X

Thanks so much Mystic. Well, so far it is changing everything I ever thought I knew about anything. And, at worst, I am going to come out with the most kick-ass dinner party stories ever ; ) Fascinated as to what the info I don’t know yet might be… xx

Feeling calm about the situation. Have written a reply back to the leo dudes email. Feeling calm but nervous. Got a friend to read it who is just brutally honest and after sleeping over it i have followed through with the edits she recommended. I love it when friends remind you that you shouldn’t give your power away or where/when exactly you’re giving it away. I get so lost playing nice that its humbling to know i have friends who can fill that gap for me when i cant sometimes for myself. I guess from this experience ive also realised… Read more »

He cannot continue is his reply and also just gotten a reply back with a load of praise and complements. He’s free to decide what he wants. We live only once and we should only pursue what we most want and what/who feels right for us. I have followed my gut instincts and just once i did get the feeling that his emails so full of praise were nothing but gaining time and that he’d actually already made his decision 5 emails back. For the first time in my life I’ve been exposed to snooty judgemental people (his sister) who… Read more »

thanks for the update. Sorry to hear you’re hurting but you’ve done the right thing. He’s not being authentic and sounds like he has years more growing to do.

Props for following your instincts.

Hope good things come of Jupiter in Leo. 🙂

is he the baby in the house growing up with older sisters? Men often recreate the family dynamic they feel “comfortable” growing up in. If he has bossy older sisters, he want you to sort of play that role for him. he may prefer older women. I was with a sagg like this but one of the things i will never miss is how at war i felt with his sister. it’s like she still kept wanting to boss him, but it made me mad because she wanted to boss me. Im like nu-uh twiggy I’m the same age as… Read more »

No believe it or not he’s the oldest and only brother to 3 sisters. All a couple of years a part. He’s 8 years older than me -i didn’t have an issue with age gap i am a serious individual and am fine with the older vibe. He had a problem. His younger sister is just a year older than me and he considered her his ‘baby’ sister. You cannot squeeze romantic feelings where there are none. He has totally and his sister also reiterated rather proudly that all the girls hes met have been introduced to him by his… Read more »

Reasons why love under merc retro could possibly work:

1) It’s poetic! MM always says poets have merc retro, so why not a relationship?

2) It’s a connection from a past life you were destined to enjoy (ie not karmic)

3) Deja vu moments abound – synchronicity!

is #2 just personal experience or something learned from an astrologer? :3

Ok, it’s not real astrology 🙂 .
But Merc did go retro around when I started dating my now husband?
We met at a party 15 years before & he ended up living with my ex for a couple of years.
My ex invited us both over for dinner is how we met again (merc was not retro at the time).
But within a month we were dating and Merc had gone retro. So I think it is a thing! Lol.

Interesting Eel! Mercury is my chart ruler & my partner is a mega Gem (Merc,Sun,Venus, Saturn). Checked last big love & it was Merc in Gem direct & by when we paired up it was Retro. You may be right. But I have Sagg rUled 7th & NN in 7th.

Actually yes (sorry if not talking to me, I get confused with threads), Merc and Sun are both Taurus in 5th but one is at 23 degrees and the other at 47. So not sure if that counts as conjunct. Still no ‘poof’ although so newly direct and I wrote a song out of it. So all good for mo. Going to Paris to see him this weekend. x

agree on just enjoy the endorphins .. why taint a good thing with pointless worry. if something crappy will happen then it will happen, and at least you were having fun up to that point. 🙂 remember to always leave yourself somewhere to go, figuratively speaking, learnt that motto a while ago from a wise woman 😉 …

i mean, pointless analysis, that’s what my pisces mercury was made to do. don’t get me wrong. worry though, about love, when there is an actual person involved (as opposed to zomb crush)? the ‘what if he’s…’ rabbit hole? not since my Awakening… no way, nu-uh, yeah yeah, un-huh, i’m an asshole …and i’m proud of it. I think my venus in aries kicks in and I think, “fuq him if i am going to worry about the status of this thing and lose myself in this tripe girly stress emo crap” so that fires me up to go for… Read more »

Really relate to your Venus in Aries statement. My Pisces sun can get all heart eyes on someone really fast & create reality as I want it to be not exactly how it usually is and my Scorp moon likes to grasp onto things & suffocate them almost. Which is difficult when things don’t work out well. But my Venus in Aries is always like yeah? let’s just move on — new friends new social life new crush 🙂

I love that … ‘… why not just relax and enjoy the endorphins?’ Well said. I’ll take you up on that too, amazing MM. Thank you.
