Mercury in Retrograde






You may have heard friends say, “Oh, no – Mercury is about to retrograde again!” If you don’t know astrology, you may have wondered what they were talking about. Of all planetary aspects, this one seems to garner the most attention from readers, and it certainly generates the most mail.

The reason for their interest is clear – this phenomenon is one of the few that affects everyone in a fairly uniform way, and its effects are always obvious. Once you begin to pay attention to how events in your life change during these phases, you will soon see how important it is to take note of them.

Keeping track of Mercury retrograde periods can allow you to increase your productivity and avoid at least some of the frustration they can bring about. Let’s look closely at Mercury retrograde and what it means to you.

MERCURY RETROGRADE AND THE ZODIAC SIGNS

IN ARIES: Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive,
 impulsive Aries wants to move
 ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised.
IN TAURUS: Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the 
mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth.
IN GEMINI: Because Gemini 
rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications
 when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect.
IN CANCER: Expect annoyances 
at home with baking, gardening,
 and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly.
IN LEO: Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to
 buy and sell or do any trading.
 Instead, analyze your investment
 portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates.
IN VIRGO: Challenging situations arise, especially in the 
workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns,
 as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished.
IN LIBRA: Accept your physical
 attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit
 purchases—or risk returning
them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate.
IN SCORPIO: Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware.
 Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive,
and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary.
IN SAGITTARIUS: It is not a time 
to travel, so reschedule or expect
 delays, lines, and lost directions.
 Instead, take care of local affairs.
 Patience and a sense of humor are needed.
IN CAPRICORN: Avoid buying, 
selling, or renting real estate un
der Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect
problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home.
IN AQUARIUS: With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign 
that governs relationships, 
friendships are put at risk. Petty
squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are.
IN PISCES: Foggy thinking,
 daydreams, and escapism are 
the norm; day-to-day realities
 confound otherwise clear heads
when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting.

Does Mercury Really Move Backward?

Mercury doesn’t actually move backward. If you do a bit of stargazing, you will see that Mercury appears to move backward, just as the ancient astrologers perceived thousands of years ago. After a while – in Mercury’s case, a three-and-a-half-week period – the planet will reverse itself and move “forward” again.
Because Mercury is the planet situated closest to the Sun, its orbit is much shorter than Earth’s. About three or four times a year, Mercury speeds past Earth, and that is when we experience a Mercury retrograde period. If you were in a car and another car passed you, you could tell it was going faster than you. But if it slowed down and you then passed it, it would appear that that car was actually going backward. Then when the other car speeds up and passes you again, it kicks up all of the dust in the road. As Mercury speeds by, it is like a train flying past, creating a powerful, turbulent gust of “wind” in its wake. The turbulence and disruption Mercury creates when it retrogrades can affect what we feel on Earth in our everyday lives.
In astrology, we always believe the following rule is true: “As above, so too below.” By that we mean there is a fractal relationship between the orbits in the heavens and human activity down here on Earth. This idea pervades all of astrology and is a very good concept to keep in mind.

Areas of Life Mercury Rules

Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.
Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get scrambled or spin out of control.
Why does this happen? When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury naps, the activities that it governs don’t have the benefit of a well-functioning, wide-awake planet to supervise them. Expect a certain degree of pandemonium to ensue!

What You Should – and Should Not – Do During a Mercury Retrograde Phase

Don’t make any important moves when Mercury is retrograde. Nothing will be settled successfully for the future during these periods anyway – you will find it nearly impossible to nail down a plan. During a retrograde period, it is hard to get decisions from others. Even if a decision is made, it will be subject to change, either just after Mercury turns to direct motion or much later.
Mercury retrograde periods would not be good times to do anything involving communications, such as launch a magazine, website, or an advertising or publicity campaign.
These phases are also considered poor times to launch any new endeavors, even if they are not related to the communications industries.
Similarly, a retrograde period is not a good time to sign any contracts or even to shake hands on any new agreements. Do not close on a house during this time nor sign a lease. Verbal agreements are considered the same as written ones. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.
It’s not that the people you are dealing with are necessarily duplicitous. It’s just that nobody can fully predict what conditions will be like later. If you start a new job, it won’t necessarily be the position you thought it was when you accepted it. If you are a manager, you will have difficulty choosing the right candidate for the job, so, if you can, hold off hiring anyone. If you buy a house, problems could crop up later that were completely unanticipated.

What Else Should You Do During Mercury Retrograde Periods?

It would be a great time to reorganize your files or closets. Pack up clothes you haven’t worn in a while and give them to charity. Polish your shoes and decide which ones need repair, and while you are at it, decide which appliances need to be taken in for repair as well. Oddly, as busy as we are, during these phases we always seem to find more time to get things done. When you clean your closets, you will find treasures you thought you lost or had completely forgotten about, always a bonus of going through things you have not seen in a while.
Mercury rules anything that begins with “re”: redo, reassess, repair, repeat, redesign, or revisit. It’s always human nature to want to hear that new opportunities are coming our way, but we really do need to focus on the quality of our work and improve it to the best it can be. Often this is a better use of our time than continually chasing the newest idea. Mercury retrograde allows you to be thorough and to perfect your performance.
Don’t assume everything goes wrong during Mercury retrograde – sometimes things work in your favor. If you are self-employed and turned down an assignment because the price the client was willing to pay was too low, this same client may come back after the retrograde (after he sees many others turning down his offer) – and you get the project after all, at the right price. People reconsider their stance when Mercury is retrograde, and in some cases, conditions turn out to be more favorable to you than they might have been before.
As you can see, Mercury retrograde is not all bad – you can count on it!

Women today are turned on by intelligence in men, which is called sapiosexuality

If the early 2000s marked the spotlight on well-groomed metrosexuals, it was followed by the macho retrosexuals in the latter half of the decade. The past few years spoke about the kitchen-loving gastrosexual men. This year has seen women taking a fancy to the intellectual man — the sapiosexual.

Women today are turned on by intelligence in men, which is called sapiosexuality

If the early 2000s marked the spotlight on well-groomed metrosexuals, it was followed by the macho retrosexuals in the latter half of the decade. The past few years spoke about the kitchen-loving gastrosexual men. This year has seen women taking a fancy to the intellectual man — the sapiosexual. A character like Riz Ahmed's in Mira Nair's latest release is an example of this trend.

Sapiosexuality is getting aroused not by the physical appearance of a person, but through his or her intelligence. Recent times have seen women, particularly, falling for men who fit this bill. Says social psychologist Anisha Coutinho, "If we look at films, for instance, the kind of subaltern idols being celebrated in a more mainstream fashion, be it filmmakers like Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee or Sujoy Ghosh, or actors like Irrfan Khan and Abhay Deol, are all reasons for believing how women prefer brains to mere good looksthese days and it is high time that reflected in the films too."

People also opine that women today are looking for intellectual stimulation, when in a relationship. Dr Anjali Chhabria, psychiatrist, says, "Traditionally, women have been intelligent than men and, hence, they always looked for intelligence in men. The man-woman relationship first started through the need for protection. Today, a woman can do what a man does, if not more than that. Thus, when she wants to relate to a man, she looks for intellectual stimulation before anything else. This is the basis for many of the relationships today." - See more at: http://newstimes.co.in/readnews.aspx?id=21916#sthash.uFpWlg9N.dp

1) Count Your Blessings
Autumn is about harvesting the fruits and crops that have been growing all summer and giving thanks for the bounty of nature.
Spiritually, this means that it's a time to take stock of the blessings or good things you have in your life. Nurture your blessings and watch them increase:
*Tell somebody close to you that you love and appreciate them
*Give your time to help a local charity
*Meditate on the blessings in your life
*Gather your loved ones around you and celebrate with a family meal

2) Release
Just as nature is moving on to a new cycle, so should you learn to let go of anything that is holding you back in life, or anything you have outgrown.
*Clearing out your clutter at home is a good way to get rid of stagnant energy in the home
*Have you grown apart from a partner or a friend? Perhaps it's time to release them and say goodbye, with love, so you can both move on in life.
*This season is a good time to release yourself from bad habits. Give up smoking or drinking to excess or any habit that is not serving your highest good.
*Endings do not have to be sad. Celebrate the successes of this part of your journey then release what needs to be left behind with love and move forward.

3) Slow down
During autumn, nature slows down from the busy summer rush of growth, and it's time for you to wind down, too. Try a slightly slower pace of life so you can re-gain your emotional balance.
*The autumn equinox falls on September 22 this year. It marks the time when the hours of light and darkness are equal. Night and day are perfectly balanced. Devote an hour during the equinox think about how you can bring your life back in to balance. Perhaps you need to spend more time with your family or with your partner or less time in the office? Write a list of five things you'd like to change and think about ways you can improve them.
*Practicing mindfulness will help you slow down. Choose half an hour once a week to live fully in the present moment instead of allowing your mind to race ahead to the next task. Taking a walk is the best way to do this, so you can soak up every detail of the nature around you, thinking of nothing but what you are seeing and experiencing in that moment.

4) Planning
As the chilly days and nights set in, now is the time to reflect on the past months and formulate your life plan for the coming year.
*Reflect on your successes over the past year. How can you build upon them? How can you achieve new successes in the future?
*Think about the bigger picture. How do you want your life to be in 10 years time? What sort of person do you hope to be? How can you make this happen?

5) Accepting change
The wheel of the year turns from light to dark during autumn. It is a season of transition, reminding you that living is a constant state of change. As the old year draws to a close the new year is waiting to be born. When one chapter of your life closes you should not be sad, but look forward to a new one beginning.
*As the leaves fall from the trees and the earth seems to go to sleep, autumn reminds us of our own mortality. But this should not be seen as scary, its meaning is to encourage you to live each day mindfully and with a caring attitude.
*Autumn is a magical time when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest. This season is ripe for spiritual transformations. Begin to practice new spiritual ideas at this time and you will bring fresh positive energy into your life.
