Before Your Comeback…

Filed in Mars

Salvador Dali in football helmet

Before your come-back, analyze what Mercury in Aquarius since January 6 has given you – the radical resets, surreal insights, alien whackjob dreams, lucid indigo detachment – it’s not just random and for no reason.  MORE in the Horoscopes & Daily Mystic obviously but think this: Very soon Mercury goes Direct, it’s the second of two New Moons in Aquarius, Mars barges into Aries – making for the biggest catalyst of the Zap Zone since last April – and it’s Game On.

I found this mercury retrograde really comforting and safe – I did a lot of ‘me’ time. I reflected a lot. Waited things out. Didn’t respond to ‘muggles’. Felt so glorious and rested. More content than ever. And strong.

Today I almost felt things speeding up. Now I’m anxious and afraid again…

Could it be possible I found the mercury retro bubble TOO comforting… how does one enter the world again? Is it too soon? Give myself a break, right?…

well while we’re talking mercury, I re-vamped my smartphone screens, deleted apps I don’t use, downloaded 4 good, non-gimmicky apps to officially make my life more efficient. Booked dentist as oracle was hassling me to do. lol. aqua isn’t really trippy for me like that, i’m not really an alien indigo 8th dimension whatever person. well maybe i have been scarred by too many whatevers … or a long and lonely series of neptune transits a few years ago. Also i have to kind of be earthed in order to focus and earn moneh, lol… otherwise i am offf floating… Read more »

actually maybe i have just figured this out a bit. if i do venture into off-planet lands, it’s *private*. authorised personnel only. and also, i haven’t figured out what “earthly” use such knowledge or whatever is to me. Pleiades, star people, so what? Is that going to help me get a cool job where I can afford to pay rent in this city *and* save money ?? Thus spake moon in capricorn.

I’m over this Merc retro, it has been surreal and down the rabbit hole. Beginning of Jan. I was still recovering from that minor surgery and feeling weak, but mostly feeling completely drugged and hungover from the general anaesthesia, and I felt two steps behind the present moment all the time, and it was scary and frustrating. I’m mostly 100% back to normal now, though still not quite…… I’m not meant to be under heavy pharmaceuticals…. too much Pisces in my natal chart, it’s like I’m naturally on drugs… I also have natal Mercury in Aqua, so I suppose this… Read more »

hey fc, the don season link was interesting, thanks. had some wierd things come up so cool to add another layer of perspective on this. i think i am sheep rising, haha, so maybe yes year of the Yáng will be gentler..

re your private practice, if you;re recovering from an operation and juggling matters of the heart, plus new jobs, maybe take it easy..as little by little? not sure how long you have been working on it all, etc x

This morning, before I even began with my first patient, who was face down on the table, I fell down… This chart of it…as I noted the time, tells all. Have literally been massaging in that room for eight and a half yrs. But, with being in the ZZ I have felt done…done, done done. To transition tho is not an over night gig, it will have to be step by excruciating, Saturn disciplined step… I have avoided it because I can be a lazy dreamer at times even though my spirit yells, Get on with It! So anyway, stepped… Read more »

Gawd, that sounds painful, sweatpea…..reckon it was time for you to take a break…no pun intended…. And like you said, time to give up the physical work and do the mental. Maybe teaching what you’ve been practising all these years, perhaps? Doing further study? I looked at the chart you posted – but i’m still very green at this, and can’t come up with much. Also, it has to be looked at against your natal chart. I can only tell you that a similar thing happened to me in 2011 and see if any of the planet placings relate to… Read more »

I had SO MANY old memories popping into my head randomly today. New job was official in early January, and I started on the 12th. It has been an incredibly difficult four weeks. I knew it would be hard, but there have been some real surprises that have me doubting whether I can make this work and whether they’ll even want to keep me. I hope things improve come Wednesday and beyond… trying to surrender and let the universe sort it all out, but it’s been harrowing. Also waiting to hear about a new housing situation – with Jupiter in… Read more »

I am not sure what I’ve accomplished. A lot of it comedown from my vipassana course — trying to be mindful, trying to observe even my poorest moments objectively — and dealing with a whooole lot of fodder for that. Lots of petty anger. It’s challenging to watch that without wanting to fix it. And kind of crazy since I’ve been doing an intense gratitude exercise — 4 longhand pages daily — and when I did this before I got super blissed out on it. I keep trucking. I’m a little bit bored and disillusioned, but trying to keep everything… Read more »

So as I sit to spill it, my heat is out and my 6 year old is singing, “oops upside your head”. Pfffft. Had total LZ relapse this morning. WTF, I thought that was long over. It started last April and was hard core until the fall when I got it under control. I can’t deal with it again like that, especially in the dead of winter. Fuq.

Good news though – getting better with my sleeping habits. Started taking melatonin and it’s really helping. I’ve had bad sleeping habits for years, just like dad and grandma.

Mercury retro has been conjunct my natal mercury in the seventh house. Maybe it explains rehashing ancient angst with my Scorpio partner..we feel mired in ye olde crappe. I hope the direct motion means finding a path forward. Also natal merc opposing my ascendant being pinged. I once read this aspect as manifesting in an urge to always say the ‘right’ thing to the point of not having strong or true voice and opinions of one’s own. Embarrassing..but it resonates. I noticed I have been examining and resisting this urge to merge more. Maybe also the retro influence. Maybe why… Read more »

Merc conjunct natal merc sounds like a doozy. Hopefully what is being dug up in the 7th will stay put when merc moves on.

Transiting Mercury is in my 3rd and opposing my natal sun. The southern part of my chart is pretty empty natally, so it is interesting to have all this action in recent times.

January 6th I was blissed out at vipassana….one month later and working long hours at this new job just putting in time and hoping it pays off and slows down soon. Can feel my health slipping away, need to make some changes… I have an obsessive nature and it is totally a double edged sword.

This Mercury retrograde has been completely overshadowed by Saturn conjunct my Venus… the best I got out of it was reuniting with my old journals and scraps and seeing how my entire adult life has been consumed by pining. But also found some treasures I forgot about that made me feel happy to be me again. Also having something of a style reinvention..I always thought Mercury had a lot to do with one’s personal style. Trying to do something different and break away from all basics and blacks and neutrals (hard for a Merc in Scorp) and get into something… Read more »

So, now that I have time to dive into learning through this page I took some time to figure out what might be coming up for me with Mercury going direct using my chart. Mercury in 4th House of Home and Family: Ancestry, heritage, roots. Early foundation and environment. Mother or mothers as figure. The caretaker of the household. Cyclic end of matters.

Thanks!! For a couple of years now being a subscriber I have been watching discussions here and admiring how some can write about their chart placements. I had a deer in head lights look. I get on here and blab. Some are gracious and comment but I want do much to understand better ehat the placements mean. I find it so helpful. Everything that Mystic talks about is true with what I am going thru!! I never had this type of life understanding. Usually you can go to family but some us didn’t have that.

I wish I could have been more helpful, but it does seem like you are on the right track. I’m still learning as well. Understanding transits is something I’m still working on. Do you have anything natally in the houses you mentioned?

Hi Fauness:

Yes, I have Saturn and Chiron as natal planets. I am now realizing Saturn and Chiron are conjunct. Not sure how that works if planets are conjunct natally but I assume that with Chiron natal and Chiron transit throws things up a couple of levels. Saturn… I know is a big player.

Saturn: God of “Duty”. Punishes the person who does not do his duty properly.

Saturn (Shani) tests a person every 22.5 years ?? not sure if this is true)

Thanks for commenting! We always learn when asked what we mean!
