A Classic Mercury Retrograde Interaction

surreal fashion shoot with Adriana Lima in pink costume holding a pool net

Mercury Retrograde July 2019 is outdone by Saturn, Pluto, and the Eclipses. So it’s resorted to high-fructose theatrical surrealism. This exchange between me and a Mega Mystic member is an example of it. We both have Mercury in Aries.

I just learned today how to wire-tap stones….this is exciting!!

My god, I have never heard of this – tell me more?

I’m so sorry to get you so excited over an autocorrect. It was supposed to say Wire wrap. It is basically wrapping silver wire in a beautiful form around a stone. I wish I could claim to wiretap rocks. It would be interesting to hear their stories provided we, as humans could actually sit long enough to listen. 

Well, at least I got to spend 24 hours thinking that a rogue psychometrist/Area 51 scientist had devised a way to communicate with stones and rocks.

How’s your Mercury Retrograde July 2019 coming along? The one from March still holds the “weirdest” record.

I don’t normally lose keys but I was staying at my friend’s house while I had an airbnb guest at my place (my friend is on holiday) and I lost the door key and was locked out. It was getting dark and freezing cold — luckily I could reach my friend on fb messenger and ask if anyone else had a spare key, and her friend did, and was home so I could pick it up! An hour or so of stressing, can I break in? can I go and stay with someone else unexpectedly? will I have to pay… Read more »

Ditto, Yesterday morning I stepped outside for a walk, realised I forgot my sunglasses then realised I locked myself out. So I went for a long walk till I ran into my petite little friend and asked her if she could please climb through my window, which she did. Today I felt like a pastie from the local bakery so out I went out to get one. When I went to pay I realised I left my purse at home. Thank God the local bank knows me and I got the nice lady. She let me withdraw cash. The feeling… Read more »

The Retrogrades this year have been off-the-charts. I hate to place the blame on ole Mercury I blame people for being bat-shite insane. Both Retrogrades brought back people from my past the good with the bad. More good than bad so I will count my blessings…but there’s always some fuqwit from the past rearing it’s ugly head…an ex, and another musician who took rejection to heart. Both angry and now both besties…what’s the old saying narcissistic Birds of a Feather Flock Together. Both in the there late 50’s obsessed with fashion and popularity. Is this even a healthy obsession? Both… Read more »

Oh yes the ante is up for sure.

Try and see the humour in it. Imagine it is a comedy drama. It may take the sting out of it.

If and when you can laugh you might see and feel the ship of fools float away.

It works for me anyway.

Good luck.

But probably easier said than done hey? I have a Scorpio South node and I do understand intense emotions SR.

I think you might just have to ride out this intense full moon out. Can you do the hermit thing, or just walk away. I think that sends a strong message without words. It suffocates Narcissism. Words and reaction just fuel the fire.

It should get easier next week. And then maybe you can laugh about it.

Hope this helps.

Mercury retrograde and eclipse season have been interesting. I’ve been revisiting Byron Katie’s teachings and applying them with ease for once, exploring Gabor Mate’s brilliant work on trauma and illness, and realised the other day that I’ve been feeling spiritually bereft lately. Abandoned, unsure and isolated. So I reconnected with my magic and source. I feel detached from my relationships and my life, and just want to be alone. I’m re-calibrating. Swimming in my oceanic depths. I found a beautiful lodalite manifestation quartz ring yesterday and, it being a rare find, I bought it immediately. I had 24 hours of… Read more »

Everything is insane. All the ladies in my friend group are experiencing relationship dissension with their mates. All the mates in the friend group are experiencing a sort of mid life crisis evolution. It is going to explode lol! And feeling a bit of competitive angst that My mate has achieved his eclipse season/MR growth before me. And I’m not included. But good on him. Now to focus on my world. Cheers!

Still reeling from the one in March, which is still ricocheting through my life. I made the arrangements to move during the March Merc retro and the consequences won’t stop….I wasn’t able to wait until after the retro, due to finances. Now, next week I will move house for the third time in three and a half months and it’s hard to keep it together at this point, mentally and emotionally. I’m trying to get some stable ground but it keeps getting worse. I hope this next place I can finally ‘land’. I’m terrified, honestly, because it’s all happening during… Read more »

How about this for weird. The other day I had to ring the police as my horrible neighbor made threatening, menacing remarks. So when the police come around they ask me if I was in the police station in town (50 mins away). I’m like no, I thought a phone call to 000 was enough. To my bewilderment they explain. Apparently there was a lady who looked like me ( they check your licence photo) and wearing a similar dress sitting in the waiting room when they entered the police station. When they came out she was gone. My doppelganger.… Read more »

I commented this with my mother and not only she wanted me to be named Luísa when I was born (which my father didn’t wanted) as she remembered me how my great grandmother was named Luísa.

Strangers must be picking up on this and are calling you Luisa. Please follow those intuitive feelings from her and don’t second guess them. They come with a lot of love.

Literally forgot about the idea until I was going to sleep 2 nights ago and now its coming together fast. I’m holding onto something I read here (?) about retrogrades, that anything starting with a ‘re’ is an appropriate action. Return and renew in this case.

It’s super hard to get away of family, ironically the more disfuncional the more difficult but you’ll end up disfunctional yourself and sad if you bottle up. If not for you for your child. From my experience miracles started to happen one year after I’ve let go of difficult always drama family and just plain abusive. Help, new connections and plain miracles started to happen. It was like my life was blocked before. Good luck and congratulations

On the flip side – the sh*t that really matters has been bobbing up like bright little flame signs that read ‘This Way’, ‘Focus here’ , ‘Future this way.’ like carnival signage next to the rides.

I am experiencing the craziest pre-full-moon-eclypse weirdness I’ve experienced in ages.
Muggles are everywhere, especially the ones that try to pin on you, things that are clearly a consequence of their way to manage things in the past.
I have rage upsurges I do not normally experience (Virgo rising, Moon in Taurus: brainy and calm is my second nature) and I feel like I want to shoot someone in his face.

Any word of advice on Merc-Ret safety protocol for these inevitable matters, from esteemed Mystic or any of the members? I will quadruple-check everything I can think of, but is there a particular flavour to the potential/likely troubles/themes brought about by the current one?

Hard copies of all reservations, visas, passport, driver’s license-

Double bag liquids- Mercury retro can mean leaky boundaries.

For your computer get the extra warranty and malware protection.

Do travel alert for banking- credit card so they don’t freeze account.

Extra zip lock bags for return for liquids-

Check rules re permitted meds.
