Mercury Retrograde Sept. 24th, 2008 September 22, 2008

Posted by cosmicsense in astrology.

Our speedy planet of communications, MERCURY, turns Retrograde on Wednesday, September 24, 2008 at 22*49 Libra. Less than a month later, on Wednesday, October 15th, it turns Direct once again at 7*37 Libra.

(By the way I use the ” * ” symbol to denote “degrees” because there is no little circle on my keyboard.)

Mercury plays this backward-forward game about 3X a year, usually lasting approximately 3 weeks in each retrograde period. Although it is a spatial illusion, when it goes retrograde, the principles of Mercury ( the capacity to think, speak, learn & reason) are somewhat altered. Therefore any communication system can potentially delay, go on the blink, temporarily breakdown, miscommunicate, etc. This may affect computers, phone lines, banking info, that part of my brain…as well as verbal or written interactions. Minor transportation issues may arise.

I recommend checking things over, like the carpentry rule “measure twice, cut once”, especially contracts signed, or making large purchases. Could be delays in action so progress on some project may slow down. None of this is written in stone of course and Mercury Retrograde is not a bad thing either. It might be a useful time to review, reorganize, research, repair, reorient, recycle, regroup…you get the idea. I know energy follows thought and I do not want to expect these things to happen, but when they do, and in my experience they have, I am not surprised.

Remember: There is no good or bad in astrology. Every sign (electromagnetic field), planet (electro-transmitter) & aspect (electro- distributor) is energy. What you choose to do with it is up to you.
