Mercury Retro Weird + Weekly Scopes

Mercury Retrograde

YES the rumors (and my ever-so-subtle warnings in the Daily Mystic e-mail) are for real. Mercury is about to go Retro-Bats, first in the sign of Scorpio and then Libra. Right as we hurtle into a black hole vortex of relationship weirding the Full Moon Eclipse in Aries.  Peeps are definitely going to be intense – if not obsessive – and then re-examining romantic/biz partnership options.

But it’s the Eclipse ON rad planet Uranus that really zings this schizz up. If it were a cocktail it would have a ring of blue flame and a vortex of Dark Matter swirling around at the bottom of the antique from Atlantis bubble glass. AND not to mention the Eros-Pluto conjunction square the Full Moon/Sun in LIbra AND – in case that is not enough oomph for some of you hardcore Zap Zone astral trippers, VENUS in LIBRA square PLUTO.

You’re running this show – obviously – but to aid in navigation and “aha” moments, the Weekly Horoscopes from October 4 are live now.

And hey, i just asked my Gemini daughter (Moon in Scorpio-Aqua Rising) for any title ideas for the Love Zombies e-book i am thinking about writing and she came up with “better to be a loner bitch than a Love Zombie.” Too long but pert, no? She is 14, age of the first Uranus transit and some superb clarity.

Thoughts?

I don’t normally have any issues with Merc retro, but I note with excitement that Merc is almost on my GARY! Will the retro bring news of old bogan boyfriends? My Gary is in my third – does that mean he’s Mercury ruled? Will I have sudden urges to sing ‘Khe Sanh’ to my neighbours and siblings? Naturally enough I checked out where transiting Gary is just now, and what do you know, he’s parked his Holden Sandman slap-bang on my South Node. So in answer to your question in the banner, Mystic – should we do a repeat of… Read more »

Mercury has decided to park long enough to slap me in that face in an “I love you wake up” way. I’m getting in the car with him, I made he’ll a bad choices the last few weeks. (months/years) and since these are the roots of my problems I think going back is exactly where I need to be during the eclipse. Hanging with air energy to break down all my goopy 2nd house libra neural stuckness. This is the dream sequence part. Or the musical montage.

‘Loner not Love Zombie’ is me.
LZ only once and once too many because it has clouded present interest
to the point of dis-interest. Happily it happened late in my life as up until then i was breezy as, didn’t do deep & passionate as multi-sagg, more ‘now you see me now you don’t’ and leave you with kisses and a sweet memory in whatever country at the time.
These planetary configurations look to be intense and complicated, so good luck with that one and all. We are all together in this alone. x

Ugh. It has begun. All of it. Dreamt of my ex on Tuesday night. Then last night, dreamt of the guy I had a crush on when I was 15 (!). This morning, spilled my beetroot juice all through my handbag and now EVERYTHING is pink including my hands. Angry client emails re: miscommunications – not just me, others in the office too.

Like 12hV above, I feel like this is a final exam. Retrograde will be entirely 5th house, cause of 92% of all my angst. So much rapid evolution has been taking place there for these last few months. I’m painting again! And figuring out this dating thing- the trick is to allow the feelings – no illusions of safety through repression – to let them be intense and obsessive and deep and all-consuming, but only in the moment. No future expectations or projections. Love madly in the moment and enjoy it for what it is. Open to vulnerability. Let the… Read more »

It won’t stand for the spoken and written word, putting in order, weighing and evaluating, the process of learning and skills. Sign equivalents: Gemini and Virgo A.k.a…. don’t trust anything.. no?
