MERCURY is slipping RETROGRADE!
An astro comment by Sami Merlyn
The planet Mercury– which rules the mind, communication, business, & transportation– will go on another vacation and this one from 8:52 am, Jan 30th to 5:52 pm Feb 20th, 2021
It is time to move into plod mode and stay that way. It takes perseverance but you can do it! We can do it!! We can get through this! As Al would say, “This too shall pass.”
Actually, Mercury Retrograde is a good opportunity to slow down a little and be centered in the peace and love of the Divine. Celebrate rest, see established friends and family, or enjoy your own company– and let’s enjoy our time anyway! Meditate! Pray! BE in your spiritual center. This can be a time for working on stalled projects which can suddenly flip forward. Not the best time for new projects or new beginnings as things can be sluggish and confused. Mercury Retro can be beneficial for planning.
Of course, each one of us responds to the Celestial influences differently—and since I am a Libran, and very airy & mental, I am more strongly impacted than some other signs. Al Manning—a self-proclaimed triple Gemini and Founder of the world famous ESP LAB had this to say: “Mercury Retrograde tears the hell out of communications in general and presents a bad time to start new projects. But it is a good time for cleaning out your closets and finishing off old or stalled projects. By staying carefully and deliberately positive, we can handle it all and go forward together. Let’s do it!”
Think of a Mercury Retro survival plan. I post mine on the refrigerator for the period to remind me. Here is mine: “1) don’t panic. 2) say less not more. 3) stay in your spiritual center. 4) be patient with all communications. 5) prune all unnecessary activity – especially travel plans and new projects. 6) avoid new purchases – especially computers, automobiles, and electronic devices. 7) know that this aspect has a beginning, a middle, and an end… keep plodding through it. 8) don’t quit your job, change your friends, or your location – save this for better times. 9) emphasize the “better” aspect of Mercury retro: see old friends, work on stalled projects, clean out closets, emphasize spirituality. 10) Use the ORANGE LIGHT to help promote mental clarity.” Follow these 10 steps with a good attitude and your experience of Mercury Retro can be more positive.
