The Weirdest Mercury Retrograde Since 2013

mercury retrograde 2019

Image credit: Hugo Cuellar

You know it’s going to be a particularly weird Mercury Retrograde 2019 when things start turning screw the moment Mercury gets into the Shadow Zone. Both my Skype and text messaging windows are suddenly serving compulsory emoticons; I have to enter an emoticon before I can type a single letter.

I got a payment of $44 into my bank account that has no explanation, other than the word “master” and – lol – 44 IS my master number. Then I got one of those robo-scammer calls but the robot voice crapped out mid-sentence and played Billy Idol.

And, a Fitbit fuqed my Aura. That’s right. The thing I got in a Saturnine burst of track-everything frenzy was not only giving me strange dreams, prickly nerves and scary symptoms – it was scrambling my instincts. I was feeling psychically haywire and getting nervy zaps of electricity.  It took me a few weeks to realize the weirdness was coming from the Fitbit. Cue Mercury in Pisces research bender on EMFs. It’s not like the EMFs issue was new to me – more that I suddenly fell upon the data with renewed fervor.

Similar experiences – the nervy bits, not the psychic effects – are frequently reported, at least regarding the newer generation devices. My old ones just conked out but I think the newer versions have fancier heart rate monitoring that not every system can bear. My theory is that Aquarius/Aquarius Rising/Uranian people are exquisitely sensitive to electricity.

Mercury Retrograde 2019 Mysteries And More

Mercury in Pisces + Retrograde + making several hits in a row to significant planets – is going to be a phase of mysteries and solutions, enigmas and breakthroughs. Stay grounded or get grounded. Uranus into Taurus from March 6/7 will help. But your new safe, higher ground may not be what you thought it would be. You’ve been carving it out since May 2018 but only now is it apparent: sanctuary in weird times. Or, an improvised strategy that turned out to be genius.

If you think you’re edgy, spare a thought for your Muggle friends, family, and acquaintance who are experiencing the Neptune/Mercury in Pisces undertow without any context.

At least you know it’s:

  1. most potent in March and
  2. potentially fabulous for surreal consciousness, creating, conjuring, magic, glamor and lucid dreaming.

More in your Horoscopes!

Wow this whole Pisces new moon merc retro at the last part of my 12th is super potent. Last night I had an hour, just one hour when I had six people contact me. All via either phone or text. It was just a constant barrage of pings and rings and over lapping calls and voicemails. Firstly my cappi kid is leaving one job before finding another post and needed help with cv wording and photo and agency contacts, then I’m sorting a feud out between my other half and his best friend and an overnight stay here including a… Read more »

Ugh woke up this retrograde morning having been re-visited by an old, chronic eye infection I used to get in my 20s when I’d pass out after the bar with contact lenses still in my eyeballs and grotty false lashes still glued on. Have not done the bar scene, nor worn contacts or lashes in over a decade. What gives? I’d honestly rather have been contacted by a sad ex from back then than deal with this gross reminder of my Lilac Wine era.

I’ve been feeling so weird all week now! Irritated, vulnerable and not myself. My Moon is at 0 degrees Aries, so Chiron is right on it and must have something to do with it. I have no earth in my chart – apart from Chiron in Taurus- and don’t usually care much about things, but right now all the other annoyances are to do with things and money – favourite clothes that need to thrown away all at once plus bank account glitzes. I wonder whether this is about Uranus changing to Taurus, because I usually don’t associate Mercury retrograde… Read more »

Ooh so nice to come back here to this rich vein of reasoning.

He wanted to know more but as an electrician wasn’t too thrilled at the idea of his work being dangerous to people.

I feel exactly the same – and then i read the following in Breaking Smart – a reading recommendation from Mystic, which just made me LOL at myself:

Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

That’s familiar – a fiery mutable with a lot of earth raises her hand, pulling the u-haul trailer with her Mustang. But, your earth is cardinal in a mutable, cadent house: it wants to move, reach the finish line, and then start all over again. Transiting SN in the 9H (I work with Whole Signs , where the sky has no doors) makes this long journey lackluster, it’s a crisis of faith, of purpose. Meanwhile, Venus is thinking she didn’t get enough, and the Moon’s thinking she didn’t give enough – time to balance the accounts! Transiting Mercury rx in… Read more »

2013 retro began with a woman sitting across from me, an angel of some sort, telling me “It’s all about the wishes.” Revisiting 6 years ago is interesting. I started the therapy that’s led to growth & self-understanding & a new vocation. This rx will have Merc nearly touching my natal Chiron in 4th house (yes, I’m having a Chiron return) then backing up into my 3rd house. Natal Pluto is aspected by transiting Pluto, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury & the nodes right now.

I don’t have any firm conclusions on EMFs but I do know I am in strong need of deep peaceful sounds of a non-city environment, and a vista that is free of concrete and asphalt. It’s been over a year since I was out of an urban environment, ughhh need oxygen need space

So a street with tall houses or a mountain valley. Just a funnel of sound. Our individual design demands environments. But at certain transits I’m sure there’s a need for a quick mix up.

2013, you say? In the words of a well-known monarch: “it’s not a year on which I shall look back with undiluted pleasure”. I’m Mercury ruled, and am already having my share of aggravations, whilst undergoing another juggernaut Pluto transit (back in 2013 it was touching my Moon, and now it’s banging on my Sun) – I take note because Mercury is also the dispositor of my Pluto/IC.

As a Uranian native, I am hyper emf/rf & ‘all energy’ sensitive.
Natal Uranus/Sun/Mercury/Lilith/Eros/Spica conjunction in 10th, with Jupiter conjunct Neptune in 11th (the Uranian house) & Nth Node conjunct Mars in Aqua…

OTT Uranian.

I have to say though, that sensitivity REALLY AMPED UP with the advent of Pluto transiting my 12th House, which VERY FINELY TUNED and honed my capacities as a human divining rod, BS/lie detector, Barometer, Ghost Buster/medium, Energy/House clearer, Grid worker, Geomamcer & Clair-everything.

I have the married men swarming me like sharks, too. I’m also a single/divorced mom in my (late) 40s, two kids.

The only difference is they are in legally binding relationships with other women and we (the single moms) are free to do as we like – and I think they covet our freedom.

Yes, I do believe they are not having sex as often as they would like, but still, the term “sexless” is subjective.

I haven’t check the degrees of other planets that year. It was like the best ever in the first half and the worst ever in the second half. So i suspect there were some exact degrees for me as well.

When I say ‘lover’ he was in a position of power over me, many years my senior and married. When I say ‘teen years’ I mean I was below the age of consent when it started. It continued on and off into my 20s. A casual convo… Read more »

Is your Neptune Stationary? Or one of the planets in strong aspect to it? I would not be surprised if it was.

No it’s retro… I just checked the ephemeris, and Neptune went retro five days before I was born. Does that make a difference? Retros and SDs are beyond my interp skills unfortunately. Interesting consideration though… should I be checking one of the extended charts?

5 days within being born!!!
Yep, you betcha, you have a SRx Neptune. Neptune and Pluto you can easily count a week either side of the actual day of being Stationary being slow movers. I’ve seen where some say even 10 days.
Check any planets in strong Ptolemaic angles and even Quintiles, though they’d be of a narrower orb.

I’ve thought much about your Nep cj IC musings. It always sounded so guttural to me. I am too yin for my own good.
Stationary planets are smoking guns.

Thanks JM. Sobering thoughts. That dratted Neptune is the bane of my existence.

Thanks for this JM. What a beautiful song. I never listened to Supertramp much back in the day but their lyrics are astonishing poetry. x

Type it in. The music amplifies the meaning much better. No-one, but no-one, married lyrics with music better than them. The driving forces were Pisces and Cancer

Does stationary mean a planet is about to go retrograde? (Neptune went retro the day I was born apparently)

Wishing you the best, Chrysalis <3

When a planet goes “Stationary” it is either at the momement of going Direct to Retrograde motion, known as Stationary Retrograde (SRx), or Retrograde to Direct, known as Stationary Direct, (SD).. At the time of a planet going either SD or SRx they indicate greater emphasis, of their energy, on the person with this natal signature. The fastest of the major bodies, Mercury, will have a span of 3 days centred on the actual moment of being exactly Stationary. Whereas a slow moving body, such as Neptune or Pluto, will have 10/12 days centred on their exact moment of being… Read more »

Thank you so much for the explanation! Definitely something I will factor into interpretation in the future. (My SRx Neptune was already perhaps my strongest planet – conj. my ascendant, aspecting personal planets, part of a Grand Trine, mutual reception with my chart ruler – but this explains why I’ve found Neptune to overwhelmingly dominate my experience, even though I have several other extremely strongly placed/aspected planets in my chart. I feel the other placements a lot, but they haven’t had the same devastating/overpowering impact on my life.)

Jokerman

I have 10 Ptolemaic aspects off my SD Nep (inc cj the IC and it is the focaliser in a T Square that squares my Sun – Moon opposition)

If the Sun and or Moon and or Asc are involved it is even more Neptunia Productions. What’s it in Mutual Reception with? Neptune in Cap?

Saturn in PiscesMM Member
Saturn in Pisces

Yes – Neptune in Cap, Saturn in Pisces. What are Ptolemaic aspects?

Jokerman
Jokerman

The major ones. Oppositions, Squares, Trines, Sextiles and Conjunctions.

There’s a lot of tension between that Mutual Reception which could be quite the superpower. Like the ability to work hard to see a dream fulfilled.

I wished l knew the astro when l was younger. You have a great opportunity.

Ah, yes – I only have paid attention to those major aspects, though I am familiar somewhat with quintiles from Isabel Hickey’s mention in Astrology: A Cosmic Science. Thank you, that’s definitely how I’m trying to use it! Putting in the discipline to realize dreams is a major theme in my life (and, judging by the placement of Neptune right on my Cap Asc, the theme I’m supposed to work on – assisted by Uranus rising a few degrees later and its square to my Sun and Nodes). Astrology indeed is such a great tool and resource. Discovering I had… Read more »

Anything SD or SRx just cubifies the energy.
My SRx Merc (cj Uran) squares my SD Jup. It also Quintiles (almost exact) SD Nep; the 11th contact to Nep.

I make Alfred E Neumann look sane.

That’s a LOT of stationary planets!! Intense energy to handle for sure but it denotes tremendous gifts as well!

I was praying as i was reading this, that you would decide not see him again. What a predator! Why soil your aura with his slime – it would do no good to you in anyway, and it would only give him something to feed off. That is my gut reaction. Well done Chrysalis.

And yes, the astro is just SO freaky sometimes – Man, that is such a full on manifestation of Jupe on SN!
(so looking forwards to Chiron being on my SN soon….oi!)

Thank you lovely xx It has been a trip, that’s for sure. Looking at his chart for the first time was a total revelation, especially the Psyche-Eros connection, and the pile-up of connections to my 5th house. I don’t know his rising but his Pisces sun-Mars-Lilith will be on my 8th house Chiron and Psyche. I have a narcissist/energy vamp boss atm so these sorts of people have been on my mind lately. How I have had quite a few in my life and all the work I have done to keep those relationships on an even keel. Chiron on… Read more »

Well you know that in any good story, the only way fo rich and complex character development, the heroine has got to go through some tough times and meet some demons (narcissist/Qi vamps) along the way. Otherwise it becomes a forgettable/formulaic story – and you certainly DO NOT sound like you belong in that type of story. Also, it does get easier after the churn and decoding process of the Chiron Return – as you become the Boss of your own script.

I don’t know how i don’t have the 2019 yearly report. I’m on it! Thank you. X

You are all that matters. Please don’t over analyse this.

Take care of yourself, above all else.

Very wise words that you came to you yourself.

And yes you are still processing this, take your time.

Thanks for the reminder about over-analysis – Mars-Uranus-Pluto in Virgo often goes in that direction. In the end it’s blindingly simple – cut him off and RUN x

You did the right thing. I have an abusive ex too (was married to him for 11+ years), though it was all psychological/emotional abuse, no physical abuse just the constant threat of it. You have to understand that you’ll NEVER get an acknowledgement from him on this – he will never admit that what he did was abusive. He will spin it around on you and blame you instead by saying you were compliant, you wanted it, and diminish and minimize anything he did that was crossing the line by blurring those lines. He’s Neptunian so he’ll be slippery. My… Read more »

Thanks, that is some hard and honest truth about how any encounter with him would likely go. I had a good look around on his FB page before I blocked him and it’s clear he’s on a reinvention bender, along with reconnecting with a range of women from back then. I can’t tell you how much I really appreciate your generous support and wisdom, thank you xx

The Oracle has been super charged awesome for me. I can attest to the electric aura of my Aqua Rising self feeling like I’ve switched frequencies and changed mobile numbers. I don’t want the old connections only authentic energy and a soul supportive experiences.

Well the date I had last night was total honesty. He shared his journey of addiction and I sensed his co-depends in relationships, to which he said “I know I’m co-dependence.” So it was not at all awkward it was total honesty and a foundation of respect for a friendship. I’m very aware he has a deep hidden childhood memory that he said is in the black box. So I’m relieved it went so well and yet humbled by the experience and acceptance.
