Illuminating your Life Journey through Numerology and Astrology
What does it mean and how does it impact YOU?
MERCURY RETROGRADE: The purpose of Mercury retrograde is to review and revise our life and our connection with reality. The timing of this universe is geared toward the Sun as it moves through the zodiac. Mercury has an orbit that at times gets ahead of the Sun allowing us to look into the future toward new and innovative ideas. However, we cannot continue in that vein until we come back to the present designated by the Sun and put our new ideas into manifestation. During the time that Mercury jumps ahead, we ultimately have to bring the ideas back into the present to test and evaluate to see how they fit into our life. As Mercury retrogrades back into the present, the connection with the Sun happens as we test drive our ideas and re-align with reality and the natural timing of the universe.
NOTE: As we know, Mercury doesn’t actually move backwards, the issue becomes that the Earth’s orbit is moving faster than Mercury and so it “appears” that Mercury is going backwards. The important element is to realize that when Earth is moving faster than Mercury, we experience a time when our mental concepts and perceptions are stretching to keep up with the faster moving situations. We can feel confused, disconnected and frustrated as situations feel out of control.
Mercury itself rules how we think, we will be adjusting everything related to thoughts, concepts, ideas, and communication, especially how technology and material elements play a part in the physical manifestation of ideas. When Mercury retrogrades, we find that many parts of our life are being revised. Often these revisions can be a surprise or throw us back a step. However, these revisions which occur during a Mercury retrograde, are a "course correction" and provide a stop gap measure until we can review situations. During this time of revision, change is compounded and confusion is created by our reactions to the ever-changing situations. Thus anything started during this time will ultimately be taken back or even revised further, making for a highly frustrating time. This will be especially true with changing our minds, reviewing new ideas and our communication being improved and honed so not to be mis-understood.
Mercury Retrograde for 2017 - The Power of Initiative & Intention
In 2017, Mercury retrogrades three times, beginning with the first as a new nine-year cycle is put into motion. Similar to a Broadway Play, our stage lights shine on the prominent elements and events that capture the themes for this nine-year cycle and the themes that will continue to unfold for the next nine-years. The people, places and things begin to change and transition us into our new environment preparing us for this important nine-year cycle. The power of inner peace is to bring forward new visions and to see the Spiritual Play for this theme and growth. Now we can take the gift within each of the situations and circumstances and see and appreciate the gifts given to us and expand into new directions. As Mercury brings information into our life that transitions each of the core areas, we can begin to transform our life to move into our new directions.
