Mercury Retrograde Is Not The Everything

Gaetano Pezzella

That we can’t always get what we want is a raving cliche obviously. But seriously, if one more person sends me a “helpful” do-you-know-it’s-Mercury-Retrograde soon-so-why-are-you-launching-the-E-commerce now? I will scream.

I live this stuff. Obviously i am aware. The launch date was supposed to be February. That it has taken till now and is – yes – dangerously teetering on Mercury Retrograde has more to do with my Saturn transit than any mere Mercury Retrograde.

For me It’s10th house – career, business, boss bitch etc. Saturn backing into the end degrees of Scorpio is giving a LOT of us the not-always-so-welcome-opportunity to complete the lesson we began in late 2012. But with Jupiter square Saturn there will be Good Help for this process, flamboyant, bold and cavalier.

So obviously i would LOVE to have gotten this launched with the genius astrology i chose for it – it’s not going to be and now i hope it will get done pre-Mercury Retrograde. If it does not, there are worse things. We can’t always calibrate crap the way we want to. I spent a Venus Return getting a root canal. Ridiculous. But hey, the dentist was hot, the gas just Shamanic and i did not feel a thing other the cashmere blankets and someone massaging my shoulders. Not romantic but Venusian in a weird way.

If you – like me – are forced to make something happen during Mercury Retrograde – don’t freak. Focus on what you’re learning, anything you can revise and the bigger astrological picture. There is more going down here.

For example: The Saturn thing – back into the castle of Chronos for one last huge class about Sex, Money or your Personal Power and the Jupiter-Uranus vibe – radical energy zinging you into growth 24-7.

Any advice to newly unemployed job seekers during Mercury Retro?

As a scorpio/sag sun cusp this whole Saturn dance has made me bonkers. Everything is screaming “June!” and “Sept!” right now, so it’s frustrating as hell when job seeking.

Looking for productivity where I can find it and waiting for an opening are where I am sitting.

I hear you… There was a time when I only got called back for interviews during retrogrades! I think you just have to expect some changes that will be made, if you get the interview/job. Funny, I’ve been totally eclipsed out of my current job – out of nowhere without warning. I’m still employed but the hours are a joke. I started looking and of course the moment merc goes retro- I find a few job listings. I might go for them anyway regardless…might as well ! Good luck and hang in there I feel your situation I’m getting blasted… Read more »

After ten years of perfect behaviour I have earned myself two speeding tickets in the last month! What am I doing? I guess the screaming message is ‘slow down’. I try to do everything and sometimes I am unrealistic and get into this kind of pickle. My goodness. Also, I have a Neptune mark on my face. It looks like someone scratched alongside my left eye…. I wonder if there is something I’m not seeing? I broke my glasses last week and ordered new ones. For the first time ever I Had my spares in the suitcase. Actually I fell… Read more »

Oh thank ‘GOD’ – “there are worse things….” I was pretty much crapping myself about this Mercury Retro/Saturn Sucking back into my sign etc etc etc. And I’ve JUST finished with Chiron up my Natal Chiron of 18deg in Pisces too – so you know that’s gonna smart. Anyway long story short – I am making an offer on a house next Friday – I tried everything to avoid this but this is just how it’s gonna have to be. Negotiations just kept stalling and getting stuck and it was unavoidable. If my offer is accepted there will be contracts… Read more »

Excited for the revamp but certainly not forceful about it!

Thanks for working so hard mystic! I too, am getting crawled back into the Saturn n scorp swamp … Many people I know have been “yanked back” it seems…

I had recently worked hard towards something and now a total reversal. It’s financial so I need to be thankful I have something to lean on … But I’m only human as I am disappointed that my plans feel threatened at the moment …

Thanks you! I am working on something ‘mercury’ and wanted it finished by now so was getting a little anxious…I actually am getting so bored with reading about mercury retro…(also if I ever need a root canal I will definitely need the name of your dentist)

I’ve always seen it like the weather. When you know in advance you make better plans around the circumstances you know at the time. Alert. Focus and then work the best with what you have. It’s about working your life with the manifestation of circumstances.

If you include the shadow times, choosing to freeze all mercury actions for every retro would leave you frozen for a quarter of the year. Ehm…no. I just bought a van last Monday and it is seriously the best vehicular purchase of my life. Yes…the shadow hassles were there…DMV nearly wouldn’t accept the title, faxes from the insurance company weren’t coming through, etc. But it’s great. Now right smack dab in a retro is another thing. However, as far as this website goes it’s a RE-vamp, and also something that’s been in the works for a while. It’s not like… Read more »

It’s about aeons, not the transits of personal planets.

This Site and astrology being disseminated is bigger than all of us. The people nagging? That’s mercury retro.

I love Mercury Retrograde, I’m usually showering in abundance when it turns up. AND a Mercury Retro birthday to boot – awesome!

The last month ‘old’ ish has been turning up but I’ve moved on. I’m always ahead of the pack :p ?

And lets say the worst happens. Mercury retrograde hoses the site revisions and there’s coding problems and hosting problems and payment vendor problems galore. As I understand it, Mercury retrograde doesn’t cause any of that. It just means that if it’s possible for that to happen it’ll be much more likely to show up. So, wouldn’t you want those things to arise during the site revisions, when you’ve let everyone know things might be hinky for a while? We’re all prepared for a bit of confusion and whatnot. I think it’s much better than getting the site up months earlier,… Read more »

This post makes me feel better about doing something that feels like it’s breaking “mercury retrograde rules”. That is, applying to jobs with Mercury in Retrograde. It seems wrong…like I should spend the 3 weeks revising my resume. But I don’t have time to waste! I’m finished with school now. The sooner I get a job the better. If the job hunting goes super well and I have to sign a job contract then it would probably be after Mercury is out of retrograde anyway as these things do take a while. I’d be hesitant to sign a contract during… Read more »

I think you are right to start looking. You’ve been in school for a while and this is not a new venture. Well it is in a way but really part of a bigger plan in your life. You never know what will happen with a job search so you may as well get started and just keep your spidey senses on high when reading people, places, and contracts. Good luck to you!

Thank you! I’m going to spend SOME time revising, strategizing, and preparing but then I’m just going to dive in. And yes, keep my wits about me and be extra aware. I appreciate the advice.

(Been a while since I last dropped in but have been following the news, views and reviews.) For peeps with hidden Virgo power and Mutables in general this astro is *amazing* for updating and revising career / communications strategy and creative biz stuff in general. Tough going in some ways – the recent Mars opp Saturn was asking to clear out, clean up and act swiftly – but very rewarding. Put another way, after the heavy three year slog of the Uranus / Pluto square, stuff is *moving*. We also need to zoom out a bit. Last week there was… Read more »

That’s right on the money for me.

Got tossed from a stale job/biz situation 2 weeks ago.
Purged the home of stale junk a month ago.

Now I need to invoke the career awesome and update my resume.

This whole spring has just been one long exercise in the axiom “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.”

One site I read mentioned that Mercury out of bounds. We have had vehicle tragedies and mishaps- on an impressive scale. Huge train crash at 106 mph. Lost a family friend in it. Last night I froze- a car bar barreled onto the wrong side -like my side of the road as it turned. It took the whole road. My radar told me to wait. T-boned is what I avoided. Life gets lived- in all conditions. There’s a gift in the mayhem, and your launch will be better, your site cooler and sleeker, your home fenged to the max, because… Read more »

Anyway, the timing happens exactly when it’s supposed to happen. Sometimes I’m wary of trying to time stuff with the astro- it almost seems better to look back at events and say oh, isn’t that funny, I met X right when Venus crossed my ascendant, etc. Things almost never pan out exactly as or when you plan, but they seem to happen just as and when they should. And as Hardeep said above, Merc retro is about revising, revisiting, and finishing up what was started before. So it makes sense to me! Last night I was on a Game of… Read more »

Word, Mystic. The whole point of astrology is to make use of CYCLES and the fact that life is CYCLICAL means that sometimes shit that is unschedulable happens. Isn’t that the main premise of ‘karma’, anyway? That we’re not in control always but make the best of it and learn, and that sometimes/often the surprises that come after the changes we hesitate to make turn out to be things that further down the line we couldn’t imagine living without? And in turn have to give up again sometimes? Astrology isn’t something you can manipulate to barricade yourself against your fears.… Read more »

You took the words right out of my mouth, Rache. So totally agree. And, omg, life would be soooo bloody boring too, if you actually had control over everything – no surprises ever, bad or good …. jeezus, i just can’t believe people. They’re just so missing the point about everything – learning to roll with the punches makes one stronger and savvier.

Anyways, good luck, Mystic. My question is – what do i have to DO to get a dentist to give me gas? Everyone i know seems to get it except for me?! πŸ™

Skarab, I find my earnest yet obviously slightly manic explanation of my lifelong dental phobia means no questions are asked when I request gas.

Mystic, so glad your household craziness is getting sorted. Go for GOLD with the revamp!
