Cancelling Your Order Of Mercury Retrograde

Hello? Is anyone there? I’d like to cancel Mercury Retrograde and the Full Moon, modulate the Mars Uranus crap fest to a lower setting and bring forward the Jupiter Neptune good luck groovy juju please.  

If only. But we’re stuck with this. And delays/obstructions when Mars is opposite Uranus feel personal. It is like Whack A Mole out there – one task pops up, gets whacked and there is another. Or ten. Mercury in Sagittarius wants to go fast. Uranus in Aries wants to accelerate to Warp Speed velocity now.  The North Node in Leo is all about fabulous self-actualisation. Incessant distractions and tech issues are not in that picture.

But no, we are already in the Retro Zone and feeling it.

Could it be time again for the Mercury Retrograde Body Mitten?

I would be seriously interested in a hologram version, for warmer climates.

Thoughts?

Uranus and moon are conjunct my 10th house Venus, opposing mars on my north node, Jupiter conjunct Uranus in my 5th house, seems as good a time as any to buy my first synthesizer 🙂

Think because I was born with Mercury Retro that I can feel it and it affects me days before it actually happens. Still, have wonky things happen but also things move at a slower but much clearer focus for me and not others. Even though machines start getting all jiggy, knowledge of the hidden big picture always seems to come into sharp focus.

Fall clean up- post haste -raked and bagged x11 grass and leaves. Then delivered bags to friend’s house for city pick up- our last day was Monday. Discovered my license expired on my Libra bday.

The ariane benefit site is really lovely. thanks for reminding me of it. I agree about emotional state and chronic disorganization. I have a lot to say (part of my long-standing Pluto ic transit sq. And more) here. I work with a csncerian now. His desk is an absolute shitfest, I can’t understand how rats aren’t living there already. (By way of example my desk is fine but my bedroom rivals Tracey Emin’s) For cancerians I think its a kind of security thing, plus that csncerian material relationship thing.

Pi,

I always appreciate your wisdom and humor.

My teen has 13 years of martial arts training so I am grateful she paid attention and that the trsining kicked in. She is Pisces with Aries Venus and Aqua Moon- and Cappy Mars. Kataka Rising very nurturing until-

She noted that he was probably on a spectrum so slowly escalated her polite demands to be left alone- then she got help.

Whoa. That link? I have a healthy disrespect for the “life-coaching” industry but, man. I’m crying reading that “chronic procrastination” page. Fuuuuuuq. Hello Pluto square natal Moon/Uranus conj. in First AND Venus in Pisces 6th. Might as well throw NN oppo Sun Aqua AND SN Leo.

And why is Merc retro/Saturn right on top of Jupiter the day I have to meet with my supervisor in order to pretend/excuse away/shine on my chronic procrastination?

Thank you, Lili.

I have been a shit storm for awhile now. Uranus has been conjunct my sun for what seems like forever and Pluto has also been doing the same dance on my moon forever. So please pardon me while I have a bitch session. I started my month-long vacation on October 21st taking my mother to the emergency room and since then I have done nothing but care for her (she was going thru radiation for her 2nd bout with cancer) Two weeks ago I put her in a rehab facility and i think she hates me. She refuses to eat… Read more »

And doctors insist she be on strong medication for ONE YEAR and she is very muchhh against medicine and will not be taking the medicine, instead using natural remedies. Very stubborn! And scary.

2017 finale Rx observations:

Super fund wont accept contributions
Lots of emails returned.
Billed twice at supplier for same order
Refunded said amount, compensated x 2 (winning)
Old-school swipe card on the blink
Ordered new one knowing it’ll never post.
Crew from eons past making contact
Auto Roller-door at home opening by itself late last night
Not a thing knocked-off, 5k mountain bike included.
Old Clients calling wanting shit done yesterday $$$
Phone changing to random 24hr time
Surreal Workmates’, family and friends mood changes.

And we’re not even in merc metro proper! I’m noticing this round of Rx it’s pendulum like. Bad then correcting with goodies. Weird as.

Damons.

There’s some sound juxtapositions in the wording that are hilarious and poignant here. The syllabic timing in the build-up appeals to my sense of humour. Bet you tell a good joke!

Don’t mean to sound pompous – it’s my real response – i like poetry, and will stop reading early if it makes me cringe or feel it’s derivative.

Last stanza is not patterning for me, but it’s a comment that sounds like a summary, so i read it ok, too.

Haha! You didn’t ask for a critique, i know! It’s just my way of appreciating.

I’m into this postcontemporary poem thing you have here (I think mille said same thing)

Garage door : someone has a thing operating at same frequency ?

Consider whether mars Uranus is flinging you between balance and anarchy? Saturn possibly offsetting somehow, a litttle.

Huge bolt of insight into childhood today.

How I shaped an impossible task and a two year old who shook her fist at an unjust world that made people sad. What a zealous perfectionist.

Humbling and grateful that the “failure” can maybe, maybe, make amends. Having learned to love the imperfections that make everything and everyone so singular.

Grateful.

we had ‘home alone’ type of travel for Thanksgiving, made the plane by 5 minutes. Thought we lost car keys from running…..found them in outside pocket of luggage..had decided we were going to uber home and get keys lol. Just a lot of craziness and running. Then connecting plane was replaced and ppl lost seats (not us) but we received a refund (? not going to question that lol) It was a crazy trip there. Calm and easy on way home lol

This started early for me…..the last two weeks I’ve been dealing with a botched IKEA order that has come piecemeal, and it’s still not all been delivered. I’m still waiting on three items that I ordered nearly a month ago now. Also, had part of an Amazon order stolen from my doorstep. So, talk about calling in to cancel an order of Merc retro! I’ve spent many irate hours on the phone with IKEA, Amazon, and FedEx in the last two weeks and wasted hours of days waiting for deliveries. I rarely order online but I’ll now never order online… Read more »

Ikea is really weird. This same thing happened to me back in 2012. I got sent a piece of someones’s sofa? I called to complain it wasnt mine, but no one believed me or would take it back. I kept thinking somewhere out there someone is missing part 2 of their 3 piece sofa thing. It wasn’t even a standalone piece. It had to be assembled with the other 2 to make 1 piece.

Lame! Sounds like a ‘too many moving parts’ thing. Like their whole put it together yourself theme has gotten unwieldy and they can’t keep a handle on where everything is and is supposed to go. With mine, it’s three full items that have not come yet of a larger order of 12 items, and the rest of the order arrived on two different days. If I had known this is how they do things, I would have either not ordered at all, or would have rented a car to just go down to the damn store and get the stuff… Read more »

That last thing!!! That’s what i do now. Borrow a friend’s pick up or just hourly rent from Home Depot or do a whole day Uhaul and just move it yourself. 🙁 But yes the stupidity kills me.

I STILL have this sort of wooden and cheap fabric hinged “box” thing that is supposed to go to a 3 part sofa in my house! It is so ugly but hey the box holds items so it is useful. I just have to throw some covers on it.

So far the mercury rx is hitting others around me with me getting sucked into the vortex. Sis had dead battery in her car, her freaking out it was something else.

Indeed, its been a strong one for me – is it particularly closer to earth or something? supercharged by other planets?! I had a SHOCKER of a mercury retro schmozzle this morning and techie glitches all day!!! I was trying to figure out if it was psychic attack or the retro it was so strong it rattled me…particularly @ 8-9 am this morning…. The tech stuff started last week but raised the volume today! Here’s hoping the full moon’s a smoother ride.

It’s in my 4th house. So far it has been quite stressful: together with the usual “plans changing constantly” that always strike me when MR is on, this one is quite strong for a Gemini Sun + Virgo Rising person, being in Saggo. I think that more than MR itself though, the issue here is the current “overloaded” sky plus my personal BC receiving a lot of stimulation / influences. MR slows and confuses things, Saturn in the last part of Saggo tries to make you learn all of its lesson slowing things down even more. But I’ll try to… Read more »

A month ago, I’d booked a flight to Bali for a weeklong ayahuasca retreat for mid-Dec, only to learn last night that an imminent volcanic eruption is basically shutting the whole island down… BUT since I knew my flight was going to be within the Retrograde period I paid extra for a rebooking fee, telling myself “I don’t know what the hell is going to happen to delay this trip, but SOMETHING will.”
