Mercury Retrograde Jan 2015

Mercury Retrograde ~ Meaning

Mercury RetrogradeMercury goes retrograde January 21 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. So during 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.

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.

  1. Yay for more 8º stuff! I don’t have anything at 8º Leo, but I think I have something around 8º in every other sign. Thankfully thinking with the right side of my brain is no problem at all, but in my 9th house? Hmmm…

  2. Marina!

    Thankyou! I love the way you write. You put all these images that for me are so clear and that I am so able to recall! I love your writing style.

    My Persephone lays on 19° Leo, on my 2nd House, in Leo.

    You always talk about this tight grades, so I should feel free because there are nothing I may notice in my chart.

    Nevertheless, my karmic thing is getting in these little triangles, starting with my father. I have been back and forth seems like forever looking at those and trying to heal them (and NOT acting them, mainly…).

    My Inner Child is so full of energy and lust and love for life. Thus, acts pretty much like a Persephone. She is very vivid to me. This is a set alarm for me (because of the scientist I many times cited, who “ows me one”).

    I really pray Godess/God to help me, in these times. And -yes- I always blamed my father and other men. But it was always ME! So I can use my otherwise clever and mature Saturn (opposing my Venus and Sun in Aries in the 10th, and quadrating my ascendant cancer), to learn more about my impulsiveness!

    Nice to have the info now, so I may reflect and act otherwise than Lillith cutting beautiful flowers with Persephone, eating the cherries and finding my self on a vertiginous trip to the Underworld.

    I wish me luck, really!

    Rocío.

  4. Oh! So wrong! (no wonder you always alert us!).

    My Persephone sits right were my Sun and my Venus are, in 10th house. At 27-29. And is currently, is transiting Leo, on the 2nd. at 20° or so.

    Thanks. Now I know, that I will have to face my Saturn on sept. First, upon my Sun, then Venus and then Persephone. There is were my Chaos and Eris also are and Amor.

    Cupido is in 20° 42´in Leo.

    Though wrong… maybe not so!

    Rocío.

  5. Persephone is big in my chart, plus North Node on my Ascendant. Should be an interesting few weeks.
