Mercury Retro Checkpoint

Filed in Uncategorized

Savage She Hulk

So is the Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius (with Uranus – the ruler of Aquarius – on the past life vortex that is the South Node) surreal and weird enough for you people yet?

Uranus/this phase of Mercury deals in cryptic omens, synchronicity and just plain out strange echoes of the past. It’s nervy too – especially for people with strong Aquarius/Mercury energy in their astro.  Like our psyches are half wired to blow and half downloading super-amazing perceptions/ideas off some newly discovered information source.

Super-Uranian – Super Plutonic – this Mercury Retro is like the pause point before the seven weeks of the Zap Zone finale/Eclipse Bender of March. It may not seem like schizz is happening (apart from random w.t.f synchronicity) but it is.

Thoughts?

alas, had my “ex-lover dream” last night. was not a real bf/gf relationship, though at the time i wanted it to be. we even talked about it once or twice and he pushed commitment away but we still kept seeing each other. anyway…was at some kind of small party with the “ex,” his bro, and another one or two of their friends. we were watching a movie or something random like a(n american) football game. whatevs. probably was changing. ex was telling a story/jokes and i was captivated, but not lusty. i just enjoyed being around him and did not… Read more »

the NN always seemed to move slow, but now it’s heading towards my NVenus and it will be exact conjunct on Saturday.

When it hit my Cap Mars is brought me a virile lover. I have been waiting for this for a while. Now it is close I can see Mars will also be conjunct Chiron and the Sun will be conjunct Merc Rx as well. Venus close to Neptune on my MC.

If anything of note transpires I’ll report in!

Hi Chrys,

2009-11 but mostly 2010 Here’s the ephemeris for that year in which it went from 21º-2º: http://www.astro.com/swisseph/ae/2000/ae_2010.pdf

Oops! I nearly posted a song by mistake….that would be so Merc Rx!

Hello.. haven’t been on much lately because of my busy life changes that occurred starting in October. Good experience and learned a lot but then Mercury went retro on us on 1/21/2015. This is what happened to me the week of: 1/20: Was told my car has a blown engine = Need to buy a new car 1/23: Lost my contract job = Unemployed with one check left to be paid to me. 1/23: flew home as I had planned since December. I was curious about these events and how accurate Mercury was playing in my chart.. so I looked… Read more »

I also took some time to consider my contract signing during the Mercury retrograde because it bothered me.. but I always buy the same car. Same car in the sense of make and model number but probably more advanced.. you get the drift. I knew what I was getting. I think with the mercury retro contract signing it was a time for reinventing myself with how I look. If I get into selling houses… my new car will help.

xo!!

As a Virgo, I can set my clock on Mercury Retro having some kind of effect, but holy cow, this time the shadow has been seriously brutal! January has been so hard. A rollercoaster ride of mishaps and lost mojo and random kiss-your-project-schedule-goodbye events. Mercury-retro proper feels genuinely peaceful by comparison. Though I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop…

I am in the middle of a classic Merc Rx task: data recovery from my crashed backup disk. It is going well, I got all my data back, but sorting it out is tedious and time consuming. I am tempted to just toss it all in a folder and forget about it. At least I found the one photograph I wanted to work with on my new project.

I had a crazy dream last night, but not about an ex. I dreamt about my friend’s parents. Her father committed suicide last spring. I talked to him but I don’t remember what he said, even in my dream I was stunned I was talking to him. I called her this afternoon, and she was having a rough day. Felt bad that I couldn’t remember it well.

“Emotions simply are. They are elements of the power of consciousness, filled with energy. They merge into a powerful sea of being when left alone. You cannot affirm one emotion and deny another without setting up barriers. You try to hide what you think of as negative feelings in the closet of your mind, as in the past they closeted insane relatives. All of this because you do not trust the aspects of your individuality in flesh. Affirmation means accepting your soul as it appears in your creaturehood. I said this earlier, but you cannot deny your creaturehood without denying… Read more »

Yes. Lovely. As my therapist says, just feel the feelings. Accept them and you will move through them. Something will shift and they will change. The problems start when we deny them, think ‘I shouldn’t be feeling that way’, try to avoid them or numb ourselves to avoid pain.

The only way out is through. And don’t forget to breathe. 🙂

Lately, I’ve been flying along like a speed boat in the big blue sky sunny breeze with all the gifts from a North North return and Jupiter near natal Saturn. I’m stopping here briefly to blog a comment because I’m finding this Mercury Retrograde a little unusual (as far as retrogrades go).

Ok, so sexual dreams. Check. Nostalgia? Check, too. I feel a little weird because those 2 categories in my head are blurring their boundaries, so I am having sexual dreams with people(of opposite sex) from my deep past. Ones I never considered sexual mates before. Just the kind of guys that although I knew were attracted to me, never gave me more than a fuzzy, familial feeling. The strange thing is I am waking up from these dreams being totally blown away by the chemistry, its like seeing a side of them I never did before. Are my dreams trying… Read more »

Thank you to whoever suggested adding humour to your life when this transit occurs. AMAZING piece of advice. It’s working. Feeling so lonely, waves of sadness wash over me and its like a rug being pulled but I can lose this sense only when I’m in the middle of a big belly laugh watching something funny! 🙂

I am really looking forward to what gift this transit will leave me with.

Feeling mostly the desire to blow! Last night I could not sleep a wink, which is rare for me. My dreams have been more vivid as of late, too. Not sure what I’m downloading, but I guess that’s the deal: it’s just the downloading now, not time to look through or even ACCESS the files until Mercury is direct again.

Luckily no dreams about exes here. Though my last dream I remember was pretty disturbing.

Yesterday my family and I looked through a box of my grandma’s old photos. Photos from 3-4 generations were all mixed up together and it was fun to go through and reminisce and laugh – a good mercury retro activity, ha. We kept finding bizarre patterns and similarities too.

I’ve had trouble focusing and getting work done lately – my mind seems scattered. I’m definitely feeling the Aquarius energy. And, of course, I’ve had troubles with internet connectivity all day.

I’ve been decluttering and cleaning at home and office like a total mofo.

*LUCKILY* no freaky nostalgia moments so far. Everyone else around me, esp at work, is being total MercRetroBats. I’m just keeping calm and carefully working through every issue, and if it’s total MRxBats insanity, I’m just pretending like nothing is wrong and letting it roll off my back.

As usual in MRx, every form of technology I touch goes wonky – my cell, my comp, work stuff, etc. I’ve been hyper-vigilant of this ever since I started following Mystic in early Jan.

i may be jinxing myself by posting this, but since my blowout on retro day, i haven’t felt the slightest string of attachment to any exes. none. zero. it’s like the air has changed from thick quicksandy mud to, um, air. kind of astonishing, and even if it only lasts for this moment, i’ll take it. i wonder if this is how “normal” people feel – emotionally functional? amazing.

Hurting because I don’t seem to be as important to someone as I once was. Ecen though I have considered all the angles. It feels different. Confused because I am wondering if it is actually me who doesn’t want to be friends any more. Or am I picking up on my friend’s energy. Upset because I feel judged and that I am now somehow someone to be humoured or tolerated, rather than welcomed as good company. I see the role I am playing in this, it’s damaging, and I just don’t feel like myself in this friendship anymore. 🙁

Anxiety through the roof. I have to literally remind myself I have everything I need in any given moment to get some space from monkey mind. Found a year old email in a junk folder from the ex’s ex rating out his dirty behavior. So Mercury retro. Found out the taurus was sleeping in my bed and waking up to brunch with the “arm candy” he invited home to meet his family. I started questioning my sanity which is a dangerous road I need to stay off.

True in some cases, i think there are repressed emotions that can also bubble up during dream time depending on the stars and your place in the universe. As far as neurological wirings go the emotion can be more strongly attached to memories of an ex and that is why your dream imagery is that person. These could also be current emotions to your waking life you are processing and feeling for different/new person well, the memories just are not as strongly connected to them yet and the logical part of our brain typically is not active when we are… Read more »

Yup, dreaming about exes for a while now. Last night one turned into another, left his car parked in a central lane on a busy road to come and talk to me. Last Merc Retro I ended up rekindling a relationship with yet another ex. Occurs to me that I may have too many options to be truly safe during these trying times.,,

Dreamed an romantically charged non-ex – who was never really available as married but would have both been there in a heart beat if not – turned up on my doorstep without a peep and intro’d me to his two sons.
My husband was quietly irritated as was I.

IRL I wrote a slightly cocky & insulting letter to him and lost his friendship 2 years ago. I really love this guy but I hate a pedestal – especially being placed on one by a family man. Should I explain why I was such a bitch now? Oh Merc rx.

I saw the film Wild today based on Cheryl Strayed’s book that mystic posted about last year. Highly recommended. We need to challenge ourselves in our lives. I have been far too cautious up until a few years ago, and now that I’ve matured I feel the need to be more wild, not less. Don’t want to ‘settle down’ in lots of ways. Probs why I’m single – I’ve recently realised I really don’t want to be tied down. Apparently I have a fear of commitment in ‘romantic’ relationships. This is quite a surprise!

The Bulls are indeed great. Sadly, they printed the catalogue and merchandise before all the items were given the go-ahead, so, the bulls were not able to be exhibited for whichever reason. I bought the coaster set which features Bulls 1 & 2 and I bought fridge magnets of Bulls 1, 2 & 3. Every time I go to an exhibit or a new city/country I buy a magnet – a ‘map’ of places so to speak in the soul of our home – the kitchen 🙂

I agree with you. But by the same token, we don’t know folks and their proclivities. Not forgiving an ex doesn’t mean they want them back, it may mean it’s hard to process what they went through together or what the other put them through. The current may not “the One” for the other, either. It may be a transient, in-between relationship for them both. We just don’t know and if they are treating each other well it’s not anyone’s place to tell them how to be with one another or what is sincere or what is not. As a… Read more »

Thank you. Yes, you got it. Would never want to be with that ex again. Capricorn. Unfaithful. Deceptive. Cold. Not a good match. Not letting go of, means that I haven’t forgiven all that happened so it’s unresolved. The current bf is a lovely Pisces who I have known for many years. The friendship is great. We treat each other well but not sure on the long term. I’ve a Scorp moon too so am ok with long periods of no romantic companionship. I think that Saturn in Sagg is really kicking my bum. You’re right. Cyclical. This too shall… Read more »

As a former ‘clinger’ maturity has taught me that not every relationship is meant to last for a lifetime. Seriously. There is no “One” – we all have at least 1000 soulmates scattered across this planet. If we’re lucky to meet one, such abundance. As long as we’re loving, and up-front about ish, I think all is fair in love and war. Seems you guys treat each other with love and integrity, and if you know he’s not the one for the long ride, that’s your choice. I’m sure once you know which way you swing you’ll respectfully communicate that… Read more »

Good grief I spent nearly the whole weekend on this blog. My personal space looks like a bomb went off. I barely got my laundry done…I still need to dry it in the am. My kids must think I’m MIA as have not responded to baby girls latest cuteness videos and pix.

Over the years this is what I’ve found when on a Uranie high…x

Love the comic Mystic

Exes appearing in my dreams. Almost standard for Merc retro, but you are right about that nervy edge. The strong desire not to go back combined with nostalgia – yikes! Potent stuff. But if what you say is right, I’ll just sit back & let all my Gem/ Merc absorb the magic.

Totally agree with you, Ariel. A parade of exes appearing on a nightly basis. Yikes, what was I thinking?!

That was me LAST month. I’m always early to everything (meetings, concerts, classes, work etc), apparently I’m early to Astro energies, too ;P

OMG..this is exactly what is happening to me..it just now includes my Father who just passed. Not anywhere where I would like to visit mentally during the day! I am trying to put 2 and 2 together and somehow ease myself into the present and forgive their transgressions. Also ex is flying in from Europe to finally sign off on the divorce after 11 years of him being off the grid over there.

Definitely feeling the weird with dreams too. Dreamt about an ex-fling type person and it was really intense. A nostalgia feel and a declaration of wanting me back. I spent the dream going, “Is this really happening? What in the hell am I going to do?”

Yep, exes of all sorts: romantic, friends, bosses. Attempts to resolve lingering past issues with all of the above via dreams. Yet every time my brain wakes itself up JUST before that most important part of the convo happens. Cathartic, sure, but also v. frustrating.
