Mercury Retrograde 2017 ~ Angry Damsels


Mercury Retrograde lasts from April 9 to May 3 2017 and travels from 4º Taurus back to 24° Aries. Even though Mercury retrograde starts in the beginning of Taurus, the whole retrograde period has a fiery Aries theme as Mercury will spend half the period in Aries and will ignite heroic themes of courage and rescue. This is because the major star being activated will the ‘damsel in distress’ star Mirach in princess Andromeda’s girdle.

Perseus, rescuer of the princess is an Aries archetype in that he is heroic and brave. In the Greek myth Andromeda’s father agreed to sacrifice his daughter to Poseidon in order to save his kingdom. (What is it with these Neptunian gods always demanding child sacrifice?!) It looks like this Mercury Retrograde will start off extremely challenging with Venus retrograde square Saturn. Saturn is on a poisonous star too. Etamin in the right eye of Draco the Dragon is associated with the scattering of poison. (In modern days this could even be chemical weapons.)

Mercury Retrograde Journey

If that wasn’t enough, there is a cardinal T-square with Jupiter retrograde (Religious zealots) square Pluto (Globalists) square a Sun/Eris/Uranus stellium. (Persephone child abduction theme overlaps child sacrifice theme.). Mars is conjunct Ceres (The rape of mother earth and pagan principles.) in a decan hotspot that contains stars Algol (Medusa’s head) and Capulus the slayer.

Damsels In Distress

When this Andromeda Mercury goes retrograde then, we have an opportunity to do in-depth research in this very volatile area that it travels through. Facing the disturbing topics of child sacrifice and abduction is unavoidable. All news and alternative media will become super-dramatic, and the themes mentioned in this post should play out, whether they are truthful or not! Mercury is one of three visible planets that are retrograde at this Mercury Retrograde 2017time which makes it even more challenging. (At least until Venus turns direct on April 15.).

Mercury Retrograde ~ April 9 to 19

In Taurus Decan 1 ~ RAGING BULLS. In the personal realm, those touched by this retrograde will either talk until the cows come home or be very reticent. Much depends on how confident they are feeling. The shy ones might become surprisingly chatty after a few glasses of wine. Words could get them into trouble.. a lot. Mercury in this decan creates terrible gossips and brings out tactless behavior. There are rousing speeches however, but a need to temper getting carried away. Overconfidence leads to moving towards Taurus decan 1’s dictatorship potentials. It will be hard to contain political rants and protests. Having said all that, Mercury is very powerful here in terms of its dignity as it rules this decan in the Chaldean system. This position, even retrograde, can assist merchants, orators, singers and writers. Use this time to prepare for an important business meeting, interview or public performance.

Video Version contains Addendum (At 13mins) with Trump’s transits and the gas attacks in Syria. Bad Mars!



  1. Fakes – So who is Dier Dos Santos – the other party who brought the Brexit challenge to the UK High Court? Yu can google him but virtually nothing comes up! Apparently he is a Brazilian with dual passports living in Notting Hill and working in a hairdressing salon in Belgrvia… he allegedly voted leave but then decided if he was going to leave he wanted it done fairly and decided to bring this case to the high court!!! WHAAAAAAT???? According to his lawyer, James Greene he is an ordinary guy who has slipped into hiding because of hate mail… So here’s a funny thing! Peter Mandelson is the ex labour European Union Commissioner. He has a Brazilian boyfriend (not Dos Santos) and lives in Noting Hill… maybe there’s nothing in this but none of the UK press has anything on Dos Santos and no one claims to have worked with him etc etc And yet – we know everything there is to know about Gina Miller the wealthy philanthropist and other party who brought this case. Isn’t that odd? Its one of the outstanding legal challenges of the century so far as it is now in the Supreme court and questions the British Constitution. And the case was brought by a “leave” voting Brazilian??? My guess is he is out of the country now with a tidy sum afforded him for his dubious identity and we won’t hear anything or see anything of him again. As a Brazilian he can easily slip into Portugal and just as easily slip back to the UK should he wish on his other passport. Perhaps his travel plans will be disrupted over the Mercury retro phase… odd indeed!
