Mercury, Grounded

Fools Rush In

Here we go again folks. This time Mercury is retrograde in Taurus, sign of the Earth, high functioning serenity endorphin hormones, Adele, Channing Tatum and well, okay things moving at a glacial pace we try to finesse by saying “stately.”

But Mercury Retro occurs THREE times a year so we can’t wig out every time it happens.  We must blast on as usual but making strategic adjustments so as to max out the potential benefits from this pesky little astral vibe.  What benefits?

It is a great time to adjust one’s eating and revise shitty habits that have been sneaking in under the guise of “i am so busy – fuq it.”  Yoga & similar activities are insanely nourishing when Mercury is retro in Taurus. All sorts of major eureka flashes occur when you chill.   We can re-ground ourselves.

We can scarily realize where we have set our stance to be too rigid and loosen our grip.  We can be psychic around money. The only thing we can’t do is go as fast as we went. It’s like those really fast walker athletes who always look like they are just longing to break out in to a run.

Oh and there will be three hook-ups in a row between Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods and Under Worldly Pluto – this is being addressed in the Daily Mystic emails. It is a process.

For more specific Mercury Retrograde tips, see your individual horoscopes.

I’m starting to realize that I thrive under Mercury retrograde. I love the way things fall off my calendar and I can re-visit things that weren’t done right the first time. I’m Virgo sun with mercury (direct), MC, moon and Pluto in Virgo, Saturn in Gemini. It’s Venus retrograde that I find crazy-making! ?

And omg btw is this Venus in Taurus now that has put me in a buoyant mood? Rapid ingress of desire to Get My Shui Together (lol) over weekend… Found a nice new park to do workouts..Downloaded a really lovely meditation/confidence app , first listen last night (maybe that helped)… A language app… Couple of other productivity things..
Getting stuck into academia, finally.. It’s core habitat really. Sinking teeth into the empowering details (hmm maybe it is Jupes and Pluto). Software et al. No time to waste!
Hope this lasts. /wink

Fine, fine, ok. I’m off the caffeine today and I am feeling it.. so faded. But it means I’ll be asleep & up earlier, more chilled adrenal system, less dehydrated skin, less blue circles under eyes (I’m a sensitive fish)…no late nights squandered. My work for the next 3 months is cut out for me. Enjoying cooking again and tasty nutritious food. Leaves, yum lol. My skin is better, blood sugar stays even, bla bla. Mars 6th house anyone? Struggling with my age though. I feel like I’ve fuqed up the last 5… No, 10 years of my life ,… Read more »

urgghh, you have my full sympathies – that’s a horrible space to be in…. (been there, done that). Unless having your own children is essential to your sense of well being, concentrate on spending the next couple of years stabilizing all other areas of your life so that you won’t be so susceptible to the next Dodgy Dave to come a courting…
You can always borrow other people’s sproglets, and most friends are happy for you to take their kids off their hands for a wkend here and there… 🙂

Hey, thanks.. yes spent the last few years unspooling the wierd programming about men.. went on a few dates w someone (I fear this is assoc with recent south node activity) recently – valuable for breaking my hermit habits if nothing else – and omfg I realise it is the SAME THING but different… Guy has problems. I mean we all do but I see the shape of things now. Backing away…

I’m not so sure about the babysitting thing. I’m not really a “kid person” , guess I’ve just woken up from this outer-space / depression/ whatever this is and realised it’s 5 minutes to midnight and i have still done fuq-all with my life.

Nope it’s not that bad 😀 – this is where it all kicks in and the “omg where did the last 25 yrs go?!” is excellent rocket fuel…:-D

See, all that ish has been mega easy. People are telling me they cannot upload things for me. But than I call the intended place and wait ZERO time and everything gets done.

What IS happening is physical accidents! I slammed my middle finger (oh, the irony) and bruised myself RIGHT on the bone and I think I may have just sprained my ankle. Potentially on a mild level but I have a high pain threshold so I don’t really know. Maybe being mega earth Gem rising means my snafu’s is physical in nature, lol.

OMG. “Fuq it, I’m too busy to eat well + sleep” has been my motto as of late and today it finally caught up with me. I slept through my alarm and had to rush out the door sans makeup, caffeine or food – now that I’m settling down for a moment can I feel how truly tired I am. I have Mercury in Taurus natally so slow and steady is usually my vibe but my Gem rising and multiple Virgo planets tend to keep my busier than I need to be. After lunch, yin yoga and a nap are… Read more »

I had one of those painful winces of reluctant recognition when reading the “I’m too busy – fuq it” paragraph above. I am definitely sorely in need of an astral kick up the backside to stop eating crap, sitting around stewing in my own sulky juices, watching the same three TV shows over and over because it’s easier than engaging my brain… Feeling an urge to curl up with my journal and sort myself out.

The totally fuqed dreams began two nights ago. (Mercury/Rx in my 8th)

Yup. This morning have had a strong urge to do insane cardio to burn off the anger creeping back into my life. But lack of fitness means I’ve had to start slow by increasing the distance of my walks and adding a few hills to the route.

In serious life edit mode. Unfortunately I’m unable to apply this to some irksome relatives.

Anyone invading my space with unsolicited advice Is getting a game of thrones red wedding reaction. Well, verbally. Lawyers are expensive.

this is just how I feel/am right now – do not cross my boundaries or patronise me or you will feel my scorpio wrath (libra stellium cringes). Is it Mars going retro?

Also, Q for PIABs, should I defer first driving lessons until after the Merc Rx?

sphinx
sphinx

No! My (hopefully non red wedding advice) is to take your course slowly and double check your work with more care. To my mind retro is a slower deeper learning process but just as effective if not as fluent. Like the number 7 is meant to signify obstacles in life yet many teachers benefit from being loaded up on 7’s as it slows down their learning capacity to the point they can explain step by step to others proficiently. In fact I reckon all should learn to drive in a retro bomb during a retro. Saw a girl driving a… Read more »

haha, yes! to so much of this 🙂 we have the retro car….always laugh when I see P Platers in posh rides better then mine. i’m a driver – I like it but don’t much like the routine trips, find it tiresome then. This is for my youngster who is all air and can’t move food from the bench to a plate without dropping it, or wave to someone without knocking over a pot plant. I admit I worry a little :/ like your 3rd house Mars it would however be auspicious for Merc to be in Gem for the… Read more »

Went to an integrative doctor as I feel a bit lost in how to handle all my littlest one’s needs. He has high metal levels, difficulty digesting foods, etc.
Per the doc’s advice we have been doing only fruits and veg for the last week and half. Been getting up an hour earlier to prepare insane lunch boxes from scratch (they largely don’t eat the hot food anyway), green juices and fruit salads. I feel kind of racy from all the fruit but pretty good actually.
The kids want pizza though.

Unicorn Sparkles

Yes. Probiotics or straight up yoghurt.

The metal levels- would any of it be attributed to environmental factors/exposure?

Mm mm pizza.

sphinx

The metals aren’t environmental, a pity as more easily fixable!

I read back your post right after I sent that and thought a parent who’s getting up an hour earlier to put together lunch boxes would already have had that covered. (#unsolicited advice)

Yes, I started a Keto diet maybe a month ago. Amazing changes have been occurring health wise. I am hoping it helps with everything else it offers. Just wish I had the energy to go to the gym. Not feeling it but I will put a goal review form May 10th, let’s say, to see if my energy has changed. Life has been utterly painful since before Easter. Although I am maintaining my cool I am standing up for myself and not caring about who is present to see me drill a victim because of their carelessness. No one messes… Read more »

Thanks Jupiter. Yes I forgot about MM guidance. I guess I don’t get why I have been feeling this since Easter and feels like it won’t change. I am so tired.

But Thank You.

Sorry to hear it’s all a bit overwhelming at the moment Ellie.
I dont get why your current employer gets a say over whether or not you work 2 jobs. Is that any of their business??
