Mercury Retrograde Dating Tales are flying into my inbox. They are not even Ask Mystic questions because there is no “answer.” Dating and Mating during Mercury Retrograde are like Zen Koans or a riddle from a Sphinx. The Pluto on the South Node influence renders all encounters significant. And the Fate Matrix is active.
But, as you will see below, Mercury Retro weirdness and nebulosity still reigns.
Mercury Retrograde Dating Tale One
“I was almost involved in a hot threesome with a long-term couple. After days of hot and heavy communication with the guy, it abruptly ended. Why? Because there was miscommunication between the guy and his FIANCÉE around what was appropriate for talking with a potential candidate. And if a threeway was even viable in the foreseeable future. 🙄🙄🙄 I just had to share because I thought you would appreciate this On Brand Mercury Retrograde online dating anecdote.”

Mercury Retrograde Dating Tale Three
Mystic, I have historically been immune to Mercury Retrograde. It has such little effect on me that I will be the person migrating sites or buying a new computer during it. This may be as I was born during Mercury Retrograde? So I shrugged off the Horoscope alerts to “romance weirding” and settled into my normal groove which is that I’ve been single/divorced so long I LOVE it.
But I did say yes to the 40th birthday party of a very old friend of mine, back in an area I moved away from in my 20s. I’d decided to go as my kids were spending that weekend at the wedding of their father. Long story short, I don’t want him back but having someone you were married to getting married is a WEIRD space to be in. I needed a distraction. Fast-forward to me high as a kite on Dreamweed, sitting with my feet in a swimming pool, looking at the stars. It was 50% mystical and 50% “I need to get the fuq back to my motel and thank god I am not a house guest because this is getting messy.”
It’s midnight and I’ve lost my 20-something party animal metabolism. I am tired, high and in emotional overwhelm from the nostalgia. While I was trying to get the energy to evacuate, Xanadu starts playing and my boyfriend from high school was there, still hot. I talked to him for half an hour thinking he was a hallucination. By the time I realized he was real, he’d said he was single. We snuck out the back of the party, went to my motel and spent the next (fantastic) 48 hours together.
Got home and looked genuinely bewildered when reminded about ‘the wedding’. People keep asking why I am “so happy.” Do I know what will happen? NO. Do I care? NO.
