I have never been one of those Mercury Retro fatalists – hiding out under the bed until it’s safe to come out.
But this one is hitting me big time, and I’m freaked out.
I have been pushing shit uphill with Saturn for the last two years. Nothing has been happening in my life but I’ve been head down working hard trying to make changes.
My Gemini Sun and Venus are at 28 and 26 degrees and Saturn at 12 degrees. This full moon is smack on my natal Saturn and Saturn is well, on my Gemini Sun and Venus. I’m being lit up like a cosmic pinball machine. These last few weeks have been intense but things are finally happening in my career and life.
I applied for an internal job at work early November. I think I’m going to get it. It requires a massive change of the type of work I do – i am cabin crew for an international airline – this would be literally on the ground – plus an interstate move. Exiting and petrifying at the same time.
In typical fashion it’s dragging out and I will find out whether I have gotten the job end of next week – smack bang in the middle of Merc Retro.
Do I try and drag the negotiations out for two weeks so that I sign just after Christmas? (I can’t see this flying – pun intended 😉😂) Or try sign after the new moon, during the retro, and iterate later? The new role would likely start mid January to give me time to move states.
This career move is 5 years in the making after 13 years of flying… it feels like I have been making this happen for ages. I can’t believe it all comes to a head mid the most sucky merc retro ever!
P.S. I’m sorry if mine is the millionth Merc retro freak-out email you’ve received this week. I am genuinely losing it – I feel like my Cancer sister who is always bitching about this! Lol
Hope you’re well in the midst of this heavenly maelstrom xx

Dear Gemini Trolley Dolly,
In the horoscopes for one of the signs, i just called this is the weirdest Mercury Retro on record. It’s because it is pinging back and forth over Saturn, beaming out extra strong truth rays right at the end of his trip through Sagittarius. So you and i are Saturn Twins in a way as Saturn is squaring both our Suns – anything 28-ish degrees of the Mutable signs is copping it at the moment.
And that Full Moon was Warp Core* Intensity about a thousand. *Warp Core is how i am measuring Moons, Eclipses and big astral passages from now on. I just need to get the numbers straight.
SO it is absolutely normal – with this astrological terrain – to be feeling ungrounded and to be doubting your every decision. We can’t go back to those pre-Saturn in Sagittarius days and the new Saturn in Capricorn higher ground is not yet there. Yet Mercury Retro is apparently evoking a kind of psychic tiki tour over the last 14 years. This is not helpful for finding one’s hoof hold.
SO: i feel like you are in tune with the new earthly vibe coming in during 2018 and you did not start this whole initiative during Mercury Retro. When you get your offer back and need to sign, it will be a signature that is a formality, a completion of a process already begun. Plus getting (literally) grounded during a Saturn square to your Gemini Sun = Genius.
Five years in the making is not a classic impulse dud Mercury Retro move. And though you may feel as if you have gone secretly insane, Saturn square Sun is not associated with crazy impulsive crap. Seriously, it’s not. It’s like having invisible soggy bat wings that keep sticking into you but you can’t unfurl them properly.
