The Deeper Dimensions Of Mercury Retrograde

Every Mercury Retrograde has its deeper dimensions. But they are particularly apparent during one like this; Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, for the longest time since 2013.

Yes, it is a time when appliances are more likely to go kaput, and you probably shouldn’t scrawl your signature on anything binding. But the break-downs, scheduling mishaps and mixed messaging are just the surface manifestation of the magical flux.

Mercury is a deity of magic; spells, codes, passwords, riddles, omens, and cryptic everything.  Mercury messages are multi-media. They transmit via dreams, instinctive flashes and – classically – the mouths of idiots.

Mercurial consciousness pulls info from everywhere and speedily contextualizes it into a hypothesis. There is never just one source. Several sources are the only way to guarantee reliability.

Mercury Is A Deity Of Magic

Scenarios that make no sense ‘on paper’ are logical in the deeper dimensions of Mercury Retrograde. You can’t get your oven fixed, and your contacts list reverts to one from years ago. Your search history is a labyrinth of neurosis. But you just cracked the code of a dynamic that’s puzzled you forever. Or you’ve found the formula for an enterprise.

You’re lost for words with uninspiring people or ambitions but can stay up all night, eloquent as fuq, with simpatico souls or working on rogue projects.

Mercury Retro in Pisces renders time irrelevant. There are still appointments and deadlines, of course. And you’re probably missing a third of them. Or revising strategy every couple of hours.

If You’re Born With Mercury in Pisces Retrograde, you’re Super Psychic

But the books you read aged five or your teenage goals feel as pertinent as the tweet or quote that reset your mind five minutes ago.

If you’re onto it, the connections matrix is near-genius. Explicable? No.

To show the working would only slow the thought; Mercury wears winged sandals, not ‘sensible shoes.’  And, it’s not as if Mercury in Pisces Retrograde will up the “sensible” factor.

Every time I think there’s any reason to communicate with anyone beyond survival needs, and follow through on that delusion, I regret it.

I have been getting some hilarious communication wobbles with my personal sphere. Just hilarious, well if it wasn’t so frustrating at times. That’d be Mars transit conjunct Ascendant – good (?) timing!

On another note, this is the first Mercury retrograde where a forgotten workplace crush popped back into orbit. Still probably a terrible idea to pursue tho….

2 contacts overseas (&not my inside trader amigo). Of course l’m not going LZ or anything (but l have priced tickets to the PacWest and Scandinavia, checked out the weather, car rentals, what fruit & when it ripens, visas, food sources, hostels, campervans, roads to ride, astrocartography, flowers, bears….and coffee,)

Did l tell you they are very Water, well let me do so…..

Well, checking that all the strings on the parachute are intact, making sure the pilot knows when you jump, and assessing the terrain where you’re likely to land, might be considered risk-averse but also par for the course…. Naturally, once you jump, that’s a conversation between your body, your mind and physics. The rest is risk and blind faith / trust, and knowing that the sun will rise tomorrow without needing anyone’s permission, oh hai Unknown

I’m fairly sure it was November 13, she passed away in July 1995. Really incredible women. I loved spending my Sunday’s with her reading the newspaper and playing canasta together. I even got her to eat pizza for the first time, a dominos delivery.

Tech problems are minor for me atm but I seem to be blast into the past with all this dredged up stuff from 16+ years ago. What a combo, Merc retro in Pisces and Uranus on my DS. The new moon was right on my POF but if feels more like a POOF. Had a sweet dream about being on a cruise ship and I was pregnant with a baby girl and they were setting off fireworks and I felt so happy. I am not interested in cruise ships or getting pregnant so it’s about the symbolism. I think I… Read more »

Tuesday is detox and rehab for me. I’m realising that all those past neglected parts of myself needed a voice, because without that they just buried their heads in the sand of anti anxiety and sleeping medications. I’m terrified at the thought of going because numb is all I known for the last 9 years. A coping strategy that has become an addiction. Reality is cold and brutal and necessary to find. No one is being held to blame, I just followed the instructions then found the way to cope. I’m understanding that the way forward is disturbingly new terrain.… Read more »

Thank you bird, your words mean so very much to me. Actually mentally I’m back pedaling but I know that’s the pattern of stuck behaviour taking over. I got to give this a go, apparently scared is normal. Which sounds ok to me.

I’ve been looking at my clothing and feeling all the memories of when I wore them and how I felt in them. I’d honestly like to like me. That’s the core correction and the conversation of honesty I need to learn. So I’m purging belongings and it feels painful. Which is normal. To cry over clothing and memories linked to your past failings. Packing is very difficult because I’m fighting the urge of fleeing the scene. I know it’s my brain doing it’s PTSD loop and I was triggered by answering the telephone this morning. I’m told there is a… Read more »

Hmmm.. yeah, I think that liking ourselves is an evolving concept that we mature into in a less egoic and more authentic sense of appreciating who we are eg accepting the flaws and the good bits. And even when we do we might have moments where we don’t like something about ourselves. Keep having that honest conversation. It’s not a static destination. It’s real easy to start to doubt ourselves again when things don’t work or when others are not pleased with us and project their displeasure. I’ve been purging some gear and pondering why I’ve held onto it. The… Read more »

I just went through a series of business and loyalty cards and reminders of the cycles of great distress I’d been through in these last 9 – 10 years. Thankfully I had someone go through my belongings and explained I’d packed well for this next step and she was glad with my progress. So many tears because I’m in shock at the grief one feels when they have been stuck for so long. Change will come and I just have to get through to that side of my life. Because this way has held me and I haven’t really been… Read more »

Oh hun just try to let the grief flow out as it wants to without judgement. Can you notice if anywhere in that flood of emotion if there’s any relief or any relaxing of the bod after all that releasing?

Stuck was safe but is now a redundant option for you. Honestly, well done and just keep going step by step with a gentle approach to yourself and yours or anyone elses idea of progress.

Hope you got some good sleep and hope you spend today honouring you in a way that’s meaningful to you.

Apparently it’s also the disease of addiction that doesn’t want you to change either. I realise my liver can’t take these medications anymore and that pain is deep. My mother wants me to write to her each week. It’s amazing to think she still cares about me, considering our estranged relationship over all these years. She was very lovely when she said “The right man will come along one day. Because I believe it will, because you should never ever accept second best.” I’ve cried and said “I’ve done that all my life.” To which she replied “Well this is… Read more »

Yeah – you bet it is S. It’s the nature of the beast so to speak and it will throw up all it’s tricks in the book. Partly psychological and partly somatic and designed in such a way as to hold a person in their addiction and give them an abundance of reasons as to why change is not only undesirable but also not in your best interests and probably.. well, everyone experiences it differently… but often the addiction was set up as a means of survival so there is this kind of inbuilt mechanism that triggers an alarm if… Read more »

Have had the most intense mercury fuqerade today with linked folders not syncing for work project, emails over 30mb actually being delivered, but weird caching issues on a web build. Everything was fine two days ago. What changed? Lol
As this techo glitch stuff doesn’t happen often for me, I figure this fuqerade must be full on if I’m seeing these kind of effects.

skarabMM Member

No techno/communication glitches (yet), but my god, i had a dream-not-a-dream just before waking (science calls this hypnopompic hallucination) on the NMoon that took me back to The Past and tore down a veil to expose happenings that explained problems in this life. The realisation was a shock – like a blow to the stomach but at the same time i knew in my core that it was real. I now feel light as a butterfly. Sometimes asking a question before falling asleep gets answered in dream states & maybe this was a retro Merc-Chiron conjunction (trine natal Moon) answer?

Well I can confirm that the Mercury-Mayhem is starting to show itself in a way that even a Mercury Retro native notices! The communication confusion is abundant, the tech snags are revealing themselves and it’s like everyone is talking a dialect from another planet. I could write pages just on this last few days. Forget it. I’m busy. An additional side effect noted is frustration amping when a person feels misunderstood. It’s sort of A-typical retro and it could even be the Uranus Chiron shift but it’s sort of funny if it also wasn’t shaping up to be quite tiring.… Read more »

The human nature 101 comment relates to my experience with others eg what strategies they’re deploying. Not what I’m deploying though it’s clear some nimble footwork will be required. People are trying all sorts of stuff on. It’s really quite amusing – again if it wasn’t so tiring or getting in the way of the direction I want to walk….
