Mercury Retrograde can always spring a few surprises, right? And this week, it is in sync to the Moon’s Nodes – the points of past & future that are of huge import in karmic astrology, but not always so easy to interpret practically.
So here is an example. This morning, I got a morsel of information that filled in some gaps in my personal database & i also had a micro but useful financial admin idea. This is pretty baseline Mercury Retrograde stuff. And then i was upstairs in my study, wondering if Sean Penn’s drug lord interview for Rolling Stone and the subsequent bust was worth a post – what sort of of drug-lord would trust the discretion arrangements of a Sun-Uranus in Leo Hollywood star with Sagittarius Rising? – and was Penn irritated that Bowie had bumped him off the front line media?
Then there was a ring at the door, nobody expected and it was a couple, aged approximately 2nd Saturn Return. Jehovah’s Witnesses, i thought, infuriated and vowing to up the Feng Shui to fend them off. But no, they were from New York visiting and she burst into tears as she last saw this house, when she was aged 11. It had been a tailors for three generations or something. She’d had the urge to come back – Taurus. Her partner is an Aquarius and a journalist – they are doing a documentary and – this is to summarize – i have been able to incorporate my accountant who is Gemini and Greek.
Weirder, i have been trying to find out the history of the place i am in, to no avail, for months. Suddenly this real live trove of information, documents and photographs walks into the house, with everything i need and this fabulous vibe. The Taurus got the Aquarius to knock. It’s like a whole level of synchronicity beyond the standard. AND, if you are an astro-fiend – Jupiter in Virgo is literally this week in trine to my natal Jupiter…in the 4th. Mercury links them both, a Grand Earth Trine.
So i would not have predicted this – how could i? – but the astrology is all so synced! So now it is going to be a Greek and kind of history themed social gathering, spontaneous and casual but with profound undercurrents. Saturn is in my 11th house. And it is hard to explain this precisely, but when the Taurus walked into the house, it was like the house had an electricity surge – everything stilled for a moment. Turns out it had been embezzled off her by an Uncle. That feels Saturn too.
Turns out, when Mercury is Retro in Capricorn, it’s hard to get away from Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn.
Is anyone else doing Mercury Retro in such weird but actually quite explicable (when you think about it) ways?
