Yes Mercury Is Still Retrograde

Yes, Mercury is still Retrograde and about to get to the juicy bit of it’s strange little restructuring (anything involving Capricorn and a near hit on Pluto is going to involve a restructure) trip.

So now is an epic time to read/re-read the Mercury Retro In Capricorn tip sheet (you need to be logged in to view, as it is members only) and/or to share here just how juiced up your Mercury Retro is turning out to be. Remember: it went Retrograde right before connecting with Pluto – significant (sexy even) situations are in the works. Some situations are in Stealth Mode.

And how insanely power-trippy is the geopolitical vibe at the moment?  Where are you personally restructuring and what power moves are you making? Thoughts?

As one born under Mercury retro, I never really feel like I’m taking 2 steps backward for every one that I take forward. My natal Mercury is in Gemini, and I usually just feel less like communicating and more like staying in my head….as if I’m not there too much already.

Strongly feeling that Saturn square Chiron transit right now. Saturn is transiting my 6th and Chiron my 10th (which is where my natal Chiron is and will have my Chiron return next year..). Anyway…. Had a freak out tonight about career when I was feeling so optimistic about it a few days ago. The catalyst was comparing myself to some others in my field……never a good idea to compare yourself with others in general, but it touched off a lot of self-criticism, feeling not as good as, feeling not good enough… I’m really in a funk now…. 🙁 It’s all… Read more »

Thanks, PF, I do appreciate the comraderie on this site, and feel seen and heard. I wish I could say the same for my IRL life..

I’m losing alcohol and it doesn’t feel optional at all. Staying very low and present and in the last couple of weeks my need to overthink the hell out of everything has vanished. Called to mediation and end up in weird and wonderful places like rooms with standing carcuses that are all versions of me that I decide to allow to crumble and removing big swords lying lengthways along my sternum and today’s mediation ended with a massive sexual release. Definitely feeling led by something to change

Have been awol for a long time (autocorrect said “a wolf”) Tonight I was looking through old paperwork for all 7 of my siblings birth data, found medical records for my mom. Though off the charts personal, since I’m almost through Pluto in the 4th, it seems fitting to find the.biggest.coverup. ever today as mercury retro squared my moon/Pluto opposition. Anyone who’d ever read my chart asked me about my childhood and seemed amazed it was only as weird as I thought it was. Kudos, every fellow astrologer ever, you were right. Secrets of a high order.

YES TY for the reminder Mystic

My beloved MacBook Air decided to take a break on the first day Mercury stationed – since then my rx work has been to sort through all the old files and clear stuff off my hard drive. Feels good but even after all that work my computer is acting strange still so I’ve spent less time online + with my individual projects. But I have been reading a lot and am in full prep mode. Others are really incredibly transparent about where they are re: me and this time around I am listening!!

Cap moon-me would dearly love to be hiding out in a fancy hotel far, far away from NYE banality with nothing but room service, good bed linen and spreadsheets for Operation Kick Arse 2017. However am going to a music thing with the Triple Toro who is the sort of bloke who feels he is missing out if he stays in on Key Nights (He has Mars sq Neptune, god help me lol). I’ll be guzzling mineral water so I can make a quick getaway if needed.

I had written about this in the phone box thread last night: Weird Merc retro communication came through, someone from the past….. and someone who clearly didn’t get the memo about biting your tongue during this time… It was a random out of the blue email from old housemate who had lived here a couple years ago, who had seen my current ad up for a room for rent in my place. He took the time to email me that he couldn’t believe I was still ‘doing this’ and then said ‘very interesting..’. So he didn’t write because he was… Read more »

Righr after Thanksgiving I had a very rare in person convo with my brother and he told me,in his typical no filter fashion, how much weight I have gained, how I need to stop working so much and maybe I should get a boyfriend too while I’m at it. Now normally I can brush him off but he somehow found every sensitive point I have and pushed all my buttons with brute force. After losing 60lbs a couple years ago thanks to magic diet pills, I have gained it all back and then some. This year was crazy in terms… Read more »

I tell my sister that she is grumpy, she has Cap Moon opp her Kat Asc. It leaves her looking like a Leo without out a crown at times. After many decades she has got used to my Uranity.

Ouch I feel your pain but it sounds like your brother did you a favour in that it has propelled you into action. The Leo scopes are all over a health/nutrition revolution atm, I am Leo rising so have been paying particular attention to them. Family huh? I had a similar situation over the holidays. I have Neptune on my sun and Mercury right now and it’s like I have X-ray vision into people’s thoughts. I got a very pointed dose of reality about how certain close family members really see me, and why. I was angry and upset, but… Read more »

But what if you meet someone who also has a Virgo stellium where her Mars is Cj my Mars Pluto Venus and my Venus is Cj her Mars Uranus Pluto. Also her Venus is 1* Cj my IC/Nep and her Nep is Cj my Jup. Our Moons Trine though intercepted by sign. Her Asc Cj my Sun. Our Suns trine intercepted by sign &1/5H.

Music: she said she can’t stand it when ppl say that that “musician is ok” when they actually don’t really like them or l like all music when, as she said, “you can’t like ALL music.”.

The Scorp Appreciation of the Black n White! Love it.

Haha! That is indeed very Scorp. Love it or hate it.

In my teenage years I started fights, both verbal and physical, over ppl not having a position on a subject. Indifference is way worse than opposition.

I have Mars Cj Pluto, Sun Parallel Pluto Decl, Scorp Chart Tone, Kat Asc trine my 10-angled aspects to my Stationary TSq Focal Nep in Scorp. Plus my Sun trines my Jup, in Scorp, which also is Stationary TSq Focal. I am very Water.

The great thing is she likes the same group of musoes as me. And we had a great debate on cultural and legal things. I like to get these things sorted early.

I am continuing to hide from the world and it’s working pretty well. Deleted Facebook and twitter and my work emails off my phone, completely avoiding the news (normally I don’t like to feel uninformed about world events but my job revolves heavily around televised news so I need a break) and I’m focusing on writing, drawing, reading, meditating, generally being quiet and away from the madness. I can’t recommend it enough. Most importantly I’ve made a conscious decision to get over my ongoing LZ situation (cancerian with a girlfriend, at work, total nightmare, at this point more of a… Read more »

I got a letter, the day Mercury went retro near Pluto, from a large institution 5 years after Pluto squared my moon and caused major life upheaval. I cried for hours at the structural clusterfuq of 5 years ago and allthe confusion and unfairness. Still processing. They expect a reply in Jan after Merc is direct… surprisingly around that time I am also expecting to hear back about a job, the applications for which were mysteriously extended until after the retrograde.

I’m dealing with a very similar situation even to the timframes you mention. Pluto, hey.

Leo sun and Scorpio ascendant but I’m totally on the Aqua scopes, maybe a combo of Uranus on my ascendant and Jupiter transiting my 12th house? I’ve been taking the season in stride but on Christmas I was triggered hard core and had a disasterous shut down. I’ve been trying to recover all week but I’m also getting mad insights (ok there’s my Scorp rising) on the muck I’m cleaning up.

This Mercury retrograde has been one of the most potent yet. I am seeing transportation issues everywhere, car accidents and cars breaking down, etc. I am having a disaster with housing. Got a sweet new apartment which looked lovely online, came in and it was a complete mess, grime everywhere but it’s cleaned up now. My housing situation is in a flux as we have two international students confused about everything, and two people who haven’t committed fully and signed the lease *sigh* I have 4th house in Virgo and my roommate has several planets in the 4th conjunct, and… Read more »

My laptop died and I can’t afford to replace it. Any chance it will magically heal itself?

Several guys I never romantically connected to showed up at my house over the holidays to make clear to me how wise I was to never ever hook up with them. It’s amazing how much I have grown in the past 7 years. Some people never grow at all.

How funny I have just broken my second record player in less than a week and then I see the image above – love it! I’m spending some holiday downtime doing a massive deep clean / declutter of my home. Should probably have done it during the dark moon but any time’s a good time, right? Particularly for a Mars in Virgo / Virgo stellium-type. I’m restructuring my space and my schedule to make room for the major projects I’ll be working on in the coming months. I’m also making time to do some major re-visioning these next couple of… Read more »

Cancer/Cancer Rising – Any partnership in your life needs to be strong and real – analyze to what degree you may have been tolerating flimsy structures or ones that only exist because YOU are propping them up.
Been doing this in a big way. By the time mercury gets back to Pluto I have a feeling it’ll be sorted !

Well I had another interlude with my super sexy Aqua man (Venus in cap) on 9rh of Dec. He actually has been hunky door stopping my place for four years now.. Ever since he left my workplace. I know this sounds bad but we were the best of friends for seven years prior to this craziness starting. Anyway, now nothing. Felt heartbroken over Christmas. Want to believe this is merc retro but believe he is above the astral plane. Will re read tips but I guess there is only one answer to all of this and I’m finding it really… Read more »

Hmmm… not sure what I am working on. Had to tell the ex to stay the fuq away from me. Silence…. Virgo stare worked. The year is still young so I have this fear that he will pull something. So, yes, maybe I am working on my mate/date protocol. To improve the mate/date/ protocol I need to still dig through the abuse mud from my Mom. I am getting closer to healing but it is hard. Being shown that you are not worthy, not important to the family, watching me abused, watching me almost die and now she choses to… Read more »

Aqua- Self value. Had a complete Xmas meltdown tear-tastrophy. Learning to be ok with having no backup. As in I can do it by myself. I don’t need others to heal my self doubt. But people really can be assholes.

And I bought a pram today. Hoping the wheels don’t fall off on first use. Retro spooked.

Oh, wow, apparently I need to read Aqua scopes too because this exact same thing happened to me. I have Uranus conjunct my ascendant. Christmas was a total bomb, sobfest and been depressed/angry all week. Slowly coming out of it. Fist pumps to ya, Keelkeel, we can do this.

Oh yes. Aqua here and interestingly, my Xmas morning sobfest was initiated by a Cancer sun/Neptune Rising with Venus in Leo going bats on me…so lo, there’s no fixing it. He was my only friend in the new country. Going it by ourselves indeed!

Finally over the Virgo w/ a gf although he continued to flirt and reach out stating how much he missed me and how he wanted to see me ASAP. Would have probably thrilled me a couple of months ago but now it just seems tired and I find myself rolling my eyes. This Merc retro revealed a lot about how he feels about me but I’m detaching from the situation. My Venus in Aries is onto better things, with the swish of a hair flip from my Libra rising, I’m going to do the typical Pisces swimming away! Without a… Read more »

I’ve never encountered a venus Leo and mars or cap moon before in the romantic realms so I’m curious what they’re like in general!

No wonder you could give the Virgo the heave ho – it’s raining men! Lucky you! I am also Cancer and from my vast experience (ha ha!) I would suggest a middle ground if you can – it’s lovely to be excited by someone new and you don’t want him to think you are not interested… I went to see Deborah Conway recently and still love and can completely relate to the feelings expressed in “It’s only the beginning…” but something a little less than that??!! On the outside anyway!
