Mercury Retrograde September 2015

Mercury goes retrograde September 17 2015 and the traditional advice is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time. Mercury generally zips between two worlds, or rather, the two hemispheres of our brain.

Mercury Retrograde SeptDuring the retrograde period it feels like Mercury has gone down into the underworld. In this realm, closer to spirit, 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.

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

There are danger spots though. When Mercury is stationing retrograde we are at its wobbly stage where we are likely to slip-up, make mistakes, and misread anothers communications. But once we are over the threshold and into the Underworld, we can safely go about our business knowing we are in another realm. The same goes for when Mercury is stationing direct, just make sure you give your brain a few days to adjust back to solar thinking. The house in your natal chart that Mercury retrogrades in, will be your Underworld zone. There you will question everything. It will make you jittery about signing contracts, because you will be constantly thinking, “Is this what I really want?”. 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.

Mercury Retrograde September 2015

Mercury stations retrograde from Sept 17 to Oct 9 between 0º and 15º Libra. Mercury will travel through some important prophetic stars in the constellation of Virgo, and then through the constellation of Corvus the crafty crow. During the retrograde Mercury will square Pluto and conjunct Black Moon Lilith. There is certainly a strong occult and fated feel to the Mercury Retrograde. It feels very shifty too as Mercury stations direct while at the same time the North Node enters Virgo. Not only that but there is a blood red Lunar Eclipse at 4º Aries which throws more emphasis on the shadow. The mythology of Corvus will be activated strongly as Mercury flies over the crow’s stars three times thrice. The crow, like Mercury Rx, is a trickster with dark wings. The Corvus myth describes how Sun god Apollo sent the raven with a cup to fetch some water for god’s feast. On his way the raven was distracted by some fine figs on a tree. The greedy crow lost track of time while gorging on them. Suddenly remembering his errand, he panicked and picked up a passing snake. The crow constructed a clever story around this serpent as his excuse for why he had not filled up the cup as asked.

  1. Worst month in a very long time and that’s saying a lot as I have stage IV cancer. I go through a lot in a regular basis. I returned from Nepal in late April right before the massive earthquake killing tens of thousands of people. I got very ill after a week of being back, then started more holistic cancer treatment. It was all downhill but I was still on this high from Nepal and Vipassana. Mixed bag. Since May 20th, it’s all been heavy. Bad physical state, mental degrading and the blissful Vipassana all fading away. Negative mind, negative body state, but then some little epiphanies would bust through. Making music. All the while thought of writing but felt too bitter. Angry at people, angry at myself for being angry at people. Then suddenly, I find out my blood has improved, that the treatment did something good for me… after having gone to the ER from searing pain. Which is gone now. Wtf. Too up and down for me with a big fat down period these last couple of weeks. What a downer that was. I’ve been feeling lighter for two whole days now. What can I do next time to avoid all of this?

    • Sorry to hear about your troubles. FWIW this retrograde has dealt me some as well. Have you looked into mycomedicinals to supplement your treatment? If not, I encourage you to research the benefits of trametes versicolor (turkey tail) and ganoderma lucidum (reishi) for cancer treatment. Even/esp. for stage IV. Good stuff. May you become wellness.

    • It is the actual experience of going through the trials and tribulations as you did That makes it soul work. The what to avoid” is a thin existence and will teach you little

    • I hope things get better for you.
      I hope Nepal was exciting. I do not
      mean to be critical, should one be traveling
      such a distance if ill? Anyway I’m glad
      that part worked out for your courage.

      On a less spectacular note, I went to
      see the Canadian Rockies for the first time
      at age 57 in May. Exciting YouTube video at Canmore/Banff
      Alberta 2015. I was sick too for a whole month
      with doctors and couldn’t go to bathroom properly.
      Not the same thing really, but I was bouncing off
      the wall. A little bit better now.

      Most beautiful piece of classical music ever written
      still remains Mozart 299 Concerto For Flute and Harp
      Karl Bohm and Vienna Philharmonic. It is
      very healing and hope you have physical healing as well.
      Should also be on YouTube somewhere.

    • don’t want to sound condecending,as going through cancer, must be turning you inside out,but remember the astrological sequence, of the stem cells we are born with,that astrocartografically,go to the body parts allocated, epigenetics ,can turn on and off the dna of certain fixed individual patterns, we are all connected to every aspect ,colours changing comelian like,so know that you may have been preprogrammed to go through cancer,but also may be programmed ,
      to not go through it anymore.

  2. Hi. I was very disappointed that I had to discontinue reading your article because the font was so faint, had no contrast and gave me eyestrain. Maybe I could have
    compromised my eyesight for one or two paragraphs, but not for THREE PAGES. Please know that the faint printing is not for reading. You can easily give your readers a crisp, high contrast printing of your articles
    if you remember that WORDS ARE FOR READING!
    Please resolve this difficulty for those of us who deserve something that is more easily read! Your “hip designers” might think printing some things very faintly and making lesser things almost invisible, but you must not settlel for that!

  3. Sorry, I’m a Virgo.
    It means that flight attendants and doctors
    fall all over themselves to meet me.
    I should have said that.
    There are millions of Virgos even though
    no one has ever stopped and told me.

    two US Marines have fun with Walt Disney,
    impossible not to feel good after watching.

  4. i have done extensive research on the Mercury Retrograde. To gain the best analysis, I looked back in HISTORY at events which occurred during the retrograde periods in the past. My conclusions are backed up by historical fact, with some analysis. In applying the scientific method to the Mercury Retrograde, I have discovered some patterns that deserve to be recognized. First, the Mercury Retrograde occurs every 20 years in the same place in the zodiac (with a 3 – 5 day difference.) So, if we look at the Mercury Retrograde of 1995, we shall observe similar dates of the retrograde for this year of 2015:
    Mercury Retrograde 1995
    January 26, 1995- February 16, 1995
    May 24, 1995- June 17, 1995
    September 22, 1995- October 14, 1995
    MercuryRetrograde 2015
    January 22, 2015- February 12, 2015
    May 19, 2015- June 12, 2015
    September 18, 2015- October 10, 2015
    I acquired these dated from the American Ephemeris from the years 1900-2000 ISBN 90-935127-19-4) and from the website astrodeinst
    ( Secondly, the Mercury Retrograde in my research affects anything having to do with signing something, like a wedding license, or a contract. An example of this is the fact that our current President was inaugurated (when he actually took over the government) during Mercury Retrograde in January 2009. One of his predecessors was inaugurated 20 years earlier during Mercury Retrograde in 1989, and yet another one of his predecessors was inaugurated as president during Mercury Retrograde in 1969. This pattern has manifested in some unfortunate events for our presidents. I hope we pay attention to this in the future. Finally, Mercury Retrograde in my research seems to reward ABSTRACT thinking. People born during Mercury Retrograde seem to be better as artists and entertainers, than as businesspeople. Could it be a barometer of artistic talent? Possibly. More research would be needed. Thank you

    • Bitter almonds actually KILL cancer cells. They are full of vitamin B16 but the big pharmaceutical multinationals will not tell you this and even claim they are poisonous. If you can get your hands on some eat a small handfull a day for a week, and see what happens. They taste bitter and yucky but they do wonders – literally I wish you strength and speedy recovery.

    • Thank you so very dearly for sharing your findings in this. So helpful!

  5. Even though the energy is sometimes harsh for myself and others, usually what happens for me is the secrets of others find the light of day during Mercury Retrogrades. I love it, I watch for it!
