Mercury Reflection… err I mean Retrograde


I love Mercury Retrograde. What?? Most of us going into hiding when Mercury Retrograde hits. Which may not be a bad thing! When the planet Mercury goes retrograde, our beloved immortal Mercury mythologically descends into the Underworld. This is a GREAT time for Reflection … hmmmm …

According to Darkstar Astrology, “Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain. In this [Underworld Realm] we become more right-brain orientated. It is dark, so other senses are heightened. We will feel extra sensitive here, psychic even. Everything will seem hyper-real… you will notice things you had overlooked before. This will prompt you to re-evaluate, renovate, re-form, and re-invent. It’s true you might have to redo things, because Mercury will hit the same degree three times, but what this transit won’t let you do is to go into autopilot.”

“Before the retrograde, is a good time to finish off those Solar left-brain projects and gather information to bring down into your cave at its retrograde point. Then you can slow things down, let yourself be taken into other dimensions, try on different filters, experiment, shine a light on your demons, then recharge and reboot.”

Our current Mercury Retrograde goes from June 7th to July 1st. But wait a few days after July 1st as Mercury slows down to redirect himself moving forward again at full speed! Take this time to reflect and slow down especially in areas of communication, perception, business activities, mental reasoning. This is a great time for a Sound Session– turning those beta brainwaves into magical meditative Alpha Waves!
