You Never Wanted This Mercury Retrograde Anyway

Gustav Klimt

One of the biggest hits to our aura during this trying Mercury Retro phase has been the delusion-revelation factor.  Your serenity was complacency.  Your Gold  was lead. The mermaid was a bitch trying to drown you, whatever.

Since early May, Mercury – Messenger of the Gods – has thumped Neptune again and again and again.

It’s a weird little mini-era in which your most docile pet prejudices have been marched out and forced to turn real or die an elegant death. Faux friends – gone. Dumb alliances – goodbye.  Zombie attachments – whatever.

Delusions? Dead On Arrival At This Transit.  What’s left? The most pure and raw of ideas, AMAZING clarity, authentic alliances …Source.

See your personal Horoscope if you desire more exact nuance on this and other matters.

Well kind of enjoyed this one and just went with the revise revise revise vibe and it kind of worked in our favour…. Our new Digi printer is a bit off the air though – gave him our fabric to print after approving sample….he decided we might want to see half with a different setting on his machine (wtf?!??!) so now we have one set of AMAZING hemp cushions and half are seconds with just weeks til the trade show. Atleast we have something…

I didn’t think the retrograde had affected me at all, but reading this post it’s very clear there has been some Merc square Neptunian fuqery at work. Two people close to me with drinking problems have hurt me big time to the point that I have excluded them from my life. One will likely cost me a LOT of money.

sorry to hear that. good luck

I also thought I escaped unscathed and then quite recent/ reaffirmed by this post and I thought hmmm no.

Even if the people were not fake the roles were.
Right down to fake around my income even my fake ray bans from India that I had to get after someone stole my sunglasses at a yoga shala (namaste..)

backed by the power of saturn conjunct sun

could do withouch chiron squares though, its just making me want to wrap my body in formless drapery and eat a shitload of ice-cream.

I have Saturn conj sun natally and it’s an impressive power when wielded properly. It’s taken me years to master it but as I am very Cap-heavy natally I do have a certain affinity. Saturn-sun has come in very useful with Neptune now on my sun and all manner of grifters wafting into my orbit. Hmmm just realised this very moment, perhaps this recent Merc retro/Neptune square sitch has forced me to totally get my boundaries sorted once and for all. Perhaps that’s what the first phase of this transit has been about – being ruthless about weeding out the… Read more »

I can only imagine sun saturn natal powers as I have it as a transit right now, almost exact. It’s a really intense responsible yet epic power. The kind that does take years to master. Sure you can easily weed a neptune sun transit for sure

Love good boundary management. Unfortunately my neptune is exact conj my venus which is a little too forgiving and everyone gets a gold star but I have a killer saturn square asc (oliver cromwell would have approved) to sober me up when my venus gets too high on her own supply.

Ah I imagine that conj must be both a blessing and a curse 😉 I’ve been thinking about Saturn/Sun and Neptune. All my life I have been too cautious with all the wrong things, letting my guard / boundaries down for fear of not being liked or included. (7th house much?) This recent deal-breaker drama has seen me let go totally of that fear and decide that taking care of myself will come first and risk disapproval. So in this way Neptune transiting my Saturn has indeed dissolved limitations but those limitations in my case were about lack of boundaries.… Read more »

Pfft Mercury Rx. I scoff at him as usual. I taunt him, and nothing bad happens. Well, nothing bad happens to ME, and I suppose I can blame Neptune for my water heater leaking and destroying everything in the garage below my apartment. I get a new water heater and he gets all his junk ruined. Sorry about that. I have been looking at the orbital mechanics of Mercury Rx since recently I read an article in the Mountain Astrologer that considers Mercury’s declination (height above the ecliptic), not just its Right Ascension (our usual fix of a planet around… Read more »

What I thought was a minor issue that different professional gave me crazy estimates for varying ways to fix issue of water in basement but not the actual problem of how the water was getting into the basement. Until today when a family member’s business came to fix the real problem which was the plumber from two years ago did a dreadful crazy job putting in my sewer main line from house to street and the pipe has been cracked from day one. Just took awhile for the crack to grow, the ground… Read more »

Ah what a mercury retrograde that was… Remember my beautiful 12 week old son? Born in the final zap zone sequel.. well On May 22nd we were given the news that our beautiful son has Cystic Fibrosis… We were absolutely shattered and devastated. Each diagnosis of CF is different there are 2000 different mutations and each person experiences the symptoms differently.. so we were given lots of hospital appointments and given lots of information all during this crazy merc retro!!!!!! ‘ We had his blood taken to find out what the mutations are. We are waiting to find out the… Read more »

I’ve been doing an EFT, emotional freedom technique, program for the last five weeks and it has definitely helped dislodge a lot of dysfunctional thinking as well as improved my mood. It’s like we hold so many beliefs that aren’t even true and then build up a story around that and then feel like hell, and it’s all a head trip. Mercury, especially in gemini, too much thinking….and Neptune, especially in Pisces, even more potential for delusion….and Neptune is transiting conjunct my moon as well! Ugh… I have Neptune square Mercury natally, so I guess I deal with this all… Read more »

You’re not kidding. And was this round more severe than normal? I mean, it’s not just me (fully aware of the astro) working through things. It seems as though everyone around me spent the month being forcibly dragged through their shadow zone and back again. Not to mention more communication / health / travel issues than I’ve EVER encountered during a retro. My question is this – if you spent your time evaluating a situation, saw all the ugly parts, faced denial, and prepped to let go or burn it down – but then it survived… what to think? Btw, I’m Gemini… Read more »

Hi Luckyshell, I had a similar situation:

if you spent your time evaluating a situation, saw all the ugly parts, faced denial, and prepped to let go or burn it down – but then it survived… what to think?

I am sun in toro/moon in sag/scorp rising.

Maybe Mystic can shed some insight?

I had that happen as well. I’ve noticed that even though the situations that were being put through the flames this retrograde are still a big part of my life, my perspective on them has changed dramatically.

Mercury is only just out of the shadow period anyways. The past few days have been the first steps out of the retrograde, so progress in the issues of the past three months has only just begun.

Good point, and same here. My outlook has definitely changed, detachment being a major theme in that process. Still, based on the way things feel now, the issue is either in a triumphant final death throw, or becoming more refined. I also forget that there are other people involved and just as my perspective has shifted, theirs probably has as well (though they’d be less aware of why…)

Whatever. Hyper-mutable as I am, I’m ready for some final conclusions already.
