I'm so glad this retrograde cycle is almost over! It couldn't have come at a worse time, I feel so impatient and in Taurus things are moving even slower than a normal Rx!

@Shirl - I feel your Pain. I've been there, and it's crazy-making frustrating. Like Nikki said, it's stressful enough, without all the communication glitches!!!
I take all medical diagnosis' with a grain of salt, when Merc. is retrograde. And in the future, you might want to avoid scheduling these type of things during the retro. periods, if you can.
The moon just went into Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury so there should be some added tension and confusion!
Repeat after me: Everything is as it should be (for my Soul's growth). Best of luck!

Yes, I'm having some typical Mercury problems, too, like not getting any of my Spark notifications!

Medical issues can be extremely frustrating by themselves, even without extra paperwork and communication hassles!

Hi I'm new. My daughter is an astrologer so I pick up bits and pieces here and there.
The retrograde Mercury is driving me nuts:
Monday 19th - Had appointment with neurologist and went to pick up referral leter from GP. The receptionist couldn't find it - then realized they'd misfiled it. So I was late.
Tuesday 20th - was supposed to book into hospital but admission code was missing. When they finally located it the Medical Aid refused authorization because they needed a motivating letter from the doctor.
Wednesday 21st - spent the day phoning the doctor to ask if the authorization had come through. It hadn't.
Thursday 22nd (today) Finally phoned the Medical Aid myself regarding the authorization. They had not received the motivating letter. I asked for their fax number. It was different from the one they had previously given me. So I called the doctor again and asked them to refax.
That's as far as I've got. Communication issues all down the line and it's not over yet!

Action and persistence: those are the keys.

Yesterday on the Mercury station (which fell square my moon) I discovered some pipes under my sink were leaking. I re-tightened the fittings and it seems to have solved the problem.

This Rx should be a potent one for me. It falls in my 8th house and the station is square my moon-Venus opposition and opposite Pallas.

Well, it's here again. Tomorrows the official date. Computer's starting to do weird stuff, as expected. What I LIKE about it...is that we want to go over the Past and explore it again. Past issues that is.
...also the chance to realize how impatient we are!

I'm facing things like Co-dependency, which I've largely been unaware of recently.

Its challenging, though - the way your Mind just goes blank sometimes!

With trying to get all the logistics sorted out for a move I could do with out Merc Rx, but I think D will come visit me sometime during the Rx period, so that's good.

Well, i just tried to go on the usual place and hit the reply button, and noth. happened!!
I know that Merc.retr. is coming up, soon...but still, I fig. we have a good 5 more days (till the 10th) before we start feeling the changes. Thats the week before the retrograde!! the Retro. is on the 17th.
...picked up Steve Forrest's book on Pluto yesterday, and read a little. Wow!! Some mindblowing stuff about my "little" Pluto in the 2nd house. It does, (sorry to admit) fit me to a T.

Sounds like a great party!!

I have had some minor snafus over here which correlate to Mercury Rx, but nothing that can't be dealt with using a sense of humor and a little patience! T-Neptune, Jupiter, & Chiron are on my natal sun, all of which are being squared by the inferior conjunction of the sun and Mercury. Let's just say I've had some trouble with directions, communication, deliveries, etc. I also forgot about how busy I get at work during Mercury Rx. All of those things I've been waiting weeks and months for from other people all showed up on my desk, all needing to be done immediately, of course! I have to remember that phenomenon next time so I'm not surprised again!

It's all still good for me over here!

I just put together a garden party for over 100 people, and all ran smoothly, and everybody had a great time.
It even rained, and things went really well.
I did watch the forcast, and as soon as it smelled like there was going to be a few drops falling on my party, I decided to get the covered shelters out of our storage building, and I covered the driveway in shelters, threw party lights (white christmas lights) around their perimeter and hung chinese lanterns.
We partied in the shelters, through the garage, along the covered breezeway, and onto the patio that is covered in a water tight pergola!

We danced and sang the night away, licking the margarita machine dry!

What Mercury Retrograde??!!

I was in the Target store today during a Thunderstorm. The lights blinked off for about 30 seconds.
When the lights turned back on, all the register terminals had crashed.
I did not stick around long enough to see how long it took the computers to bring the registers back on line. 10 minutes was all the fun time I gave that place!
OMG! the Lines waiting to pay in that store were out of control!
Everyone was so stressed! Including the cashiere. Bad Vibes were rampant!

Just a little reminder that we are still in a Mercury Retrograde period.

It all just makes me laugh!

One has to stay flexible during these whacky phases, else one looses their sense of humor!

Never tell a physics geek to go figure, because they will.

Equation for escape velocity from the moon:
dv/dt= -(gR2 )/(R+h)2
since v=dh/dt you get v dv/dh=dv/dt

v2/2= (gR2)/(R+h) + C,

which leads to C=v 02/2-gR;

(gR 2)/(R+h) ¨ 0 as h increases;


v(is greater than)=0 so v02-2gR(is greater than)=0 or v0 2 (is greater than) =2gR or v 02(is greater than)=2GM/R (escape velocity is the minimum initial velocity necessary to not efall back downf)


Therefore, moonfs escape velocity: 5312.72 mi/hr = 2.375181 km/sec

Sorry I had to modify the origional equation because the sparks interceptor thought I was using "html" with the greater than symbol

So there you go!
Now you know what to di If you want to escape the moon's influence.
I guess you'd better start running. Really Really fast (LOL!)

No, I don't think its just YOU, DW. Thats whats supposed to happen, once the Moon starts waning.
Actually, I did OK last nite, not like the night before! Its funny, I feel (usually) the BUILD up to the Full Moon much more, than I do the actually night of the full moon. Go figure.

Is it just me BABYFACE26, or does everything seem to have Mellowed out dramatically since the Full Scorpio Moon.

I am never the best one to judge the barometer of the Mercury Retrograd Air!

But it seems like the waters have calmed down dramatically.
No WHACKINESS, or falling bodies out of the windows to dodge and all????


YES?

A challenge the moon is now indeed.

I say we blow the new Full Scorpio Moon up! It's making us all emotional wrecks!
I stirred up a hornets nest myself today, when i should have kept the lips shut. I'll be paying for this one for a long long time to come.
One should never tell their double Leo boss that they are getting tired of their crap!
Nope, not wise. Because things can get worse-and I am sure they will. I solved nothing by venting.


Blow it up I say!

Thanks D.W. I will check that out. Meantime, I remember your saying that you DO feel the full moon, and it can be challenging. I am that way too.
VERY affected by the full moon's buildup energy, like I was last nite. Feels like I'm high on something, and that something is Not good. Its been awhile since I felt a full moon this strongly. Of course, Mercury going retrograde adds to this effect.
as does Moon in Scorpio. OMG. Its going to be a challenge to call in some lighter emotional energy, these next few days, especially while moon is in Scorpio.

OK OK, I give in BABYFACE26!

Although I am not totally convinced this was my Mercury Retrograde Karma, I think it was my daughters, BUT, my computer's digital speaker system, with sub woofer, just died when we plugged them in. And they will not fix their stupid selves no matter how many times I've tried to trouble-shoot or rewire them!!!!

And I have hundreds of songs I wanted to download for a Party at my house next Saturday!!!!! I need my speakers!!!!

I owe it all to Mercury Retrograde! Thank you very much, why don't I blacken it's eye!


But, in my defense, my Daughter, not born during a Mercury Retrograde, was helping me hook the computer up, and she was sorting the speaker wires, as there were about 20 of em!



I still, though, feel like I am sitting on the sidelines watching everybody else go whacky and disfunctional all around me, and I'm affected very little by the effects.
This is not a brag, as you were thinking the other day. Just the facts m'aam, just the facts.
One of my Instructors at the Metaphysical School I attend, was also born during Mercury Retrograde.

Together, We both just sit back and watch the lunacy everybody else goes through, while we stay pretty much unscathed!

Since you are interested enough in the topic that you are the Room Host of "Mercury Retrograde-here it comes!!!" you may find it to be interesting reading, what google comes up with when you do a search on "Born during Mercury Retrograde".
We're a whole other breed of people. Odd Balls most of us, most of the time.
Very philosophically orientated, and we see things with incredible detail that most people miss. It is interesting reading indeed.

Hi Polly- here's the short version. The planet Mercury appears to be going backwards or retrogrades 3 or 4 times a year. It lasts about 3 weeks. Starts today, will continue until the end of May.

Mercury is the planet of communications, so it affects our thought processes, communication (verbal) with others, and things like Computers, phones, televisions, etc. So...expect misunderstandings, crazy glitches in machinery of this kind, and delays in business as usual - Traffic is insane, lines are longer, everything takes longer than it should. ..what is Does Not affect is things of a Spiritual nature.

The best things to do, during this period, is to go BACK and finish projects from the past, left uncompleted. Try not to Start anything new. Don't make purchases of important things, or something will be "off"...

WELCOME NEWBIES! Make yourself at Home!

Does this last for long.

Hi folks, I'm a newbie here. Was chatting and trying to send some photos to Dandelionwine and they just didn't want to go at all.

Can I ask a silly question *blush*

What is Mercury Retrograde.

OK OK Quit rubbing it in, DW! Better quit saying over and over, that it doesn't affect you, or ol' Karma might just say, OH YEAH? and give you a Bite in the butt.
This morning, my Aol wouldnt let me access SP directly. I had to sneak in on someone else's page!
...other than that, just the usual wackiness - s/ome calling me late at nite, who's never called before - thinking I was s/one else. I get a Lot of wrong numbers with M.R. ..and my piano player's computer system broke down, so he can't make the CD for me, that he promised...etc. etc.
...its really just starting today, officially.

How are you doing BABYFACE26?

There are quite a lot of whacky stories tonight in the Coffee Room.
I'd Say Mercury Retrograde is playing it's nasty tricks on everyone.

I did not have a harried day at all today.
I hooked up a new computer today, and a printer that has 8 different colored cartridges.
It went pretty smooth.

It's wild seeing the rest of the world frustrated with things going haywire.

Mercury Retrograde syndrome doesn't seem to happen to me BABYFACE26.
I have pretty smooth sailing during Mercury Retrograde.

I do have to watch out for falling bodies, as everyone else is throwing themselves out the window in frustration. LOL!
Just kidding.

I guess I am just immune to the effect, for I do not get touched in any way, my computer doesn't short out, my contracts and committments work out fine etc.

My Norm is a little topsy turvy all the time, if you have not noticed.
So I guess it makes up for it.
I feel like I am living the Atlanis morissette song "Ironic".
♫~And I really do think!~♫

But, I am also good at laughing things off, and when things go arwy, I am good at making a big pitcher of di-lemonade. (dilema + lemonade).

But,
Now don't talk to me about Full Moon Syndrome!
That's a whole different story.
I am super pulled on by the moon.
Maybe Moon in Pisces makes me extra sensitive to the Moon.
It's got me tattered and shattered!
I have no idea why. It's best I stay indoors, with the covers pulled over my head during the full moon.

Yeah, you already mentioned that (you're not afraid)
I'm not afraid, either. I just am not crazy about the miscommunications, and the technology break-downs, (t.v., computer, phone) Its starting already, the past couple of days. Also annoying is the confused thinking, and traffic snarls and accidents...you enjoy those things, huh? just kidding, in a snarky kind of way.

Today the sun and Mercury meet, considered a turning point in the Mercury retrograde cycle. Some astrologers consider the review period of Mercury Rx to be over and that it is now okay to once again take steps forward. I think it might be better to wait until after Mercury turns direct but sometimes projects won't wait!

Since Mars was conjunct Mercury when it went retrograde there is additional power to this retrograde cycle, or so I've heard. You can look at the moment of retrograde motion as the birth chart for the retrograde cycle, just like you would a new or full moon chart, or a solar return chart, to get the feel for the upcoming period of time.

Venus rules money and Libra is ruled by Venus. Just like Mercury rules communication and travel and thought patterns, Venus rules money and relating and many other things. Here is an article:

Anna, when I said, "guess I'm replying to myself" I was only joking...because I sent one post, and then, a second later..realized I'd forgotten to state the other thought..." Yep. always check and double-check for misunderstands, right? I am very interested in flower essences, and which one's are effective for people..trying to remember, now - which one is Gentian? ...hmm. I had a Mercury retrograde dog job encounter today, showed up, and an apt. full of workers was there..along with the poor puppy in his crate. .no one told me. Also, felt uncomfortable being there, with the dog, on the couch together - with the noisy workmen there..and hated putting the dog back in his crate, to leave. ..now he had to cope with the Unknown experience of having the workmen there...

Mercury retrograde in Libra, Libra is ruled by Venus, Venus rules money, Mercury retrograde has affected your money situation. I like to be conscious of things like that, not that they are always fun but to get a better feel for all of the planetary energies. Mercury Rx is a great time for thinking about stuff like that.

Well people do need more than a couple of minutes to reply! I find different Mercury retrogrades vary in their effect, and I think thats because it depends on the sign and how that affects your particular chart. Some have been horrendous, others barely noticeable!

Guess I'm replying to myself? Anyway, I always get more forgetful when Mer. is retro. and so forgot to check carefully how much I've been spending, and I got overdrawn yesterday in bank account. Bummer.
Hmmm. Hard to put a positive spin on that one...except to learn, for the future, to be more careful during this time.

That IS good advice on Mercury retrograde, Nikki. And I agree with Forrest that nothing traditionally Malefic is really so. Just as there is no Good or Bad when it comes to Signs. Or aspects. But there IS difficulty, and there Is Pain - without it, there is no growth. I do appreciate Mercury retrograde more and more...when I notice that the change in thinking is useful, in many respects. Its also useful to be aware, when people's computers start to to wacky things...to try and just "let it be" and acknowledge the reason.

I think thats good advice on the Mercury retrograde and ALL more so-called difficult transits. Ultimately our lesson is to rise about them not to give in or be ruled by them. With every transit there are things we can do to use the energy positively and being pro-active is the best place to start! Then the energy is not so likely to spill over more negatively too.

Listen to Mark Husson on Hay House Radio, go ahead and google it, his program is called The Power Peak Hour. He is on a crusade to rid Mercury Rx of it's bad reputation and I agree with him. Allowing a planet to ruin 6 weeks of your life three times a year is ridiculous. There are hassles all over the place in life. It is our challenge to learn to deal with them with poise. Consider it an extended test of patience.

The same could be said for Saturn. If we allow our fear to rule us when it comes to certain things we are giving away our personal power. With crisis comes opportunity. Without crisis all remains stagnant. We must be pushed to change if we are to grow. This is the basis of evolutionary astrology and Stephen Forrest's work in particular. We are not DOOMED just because a planet happens to be doing something once considered malefic.

Besides, we can't do anything to stop Mercury Rx from happening so we might as well appreciate it!

Jersey Girl - watch out in signing contracts during Mercury retrograde...they always warn you, that in purchasing something, some Unexpected flaw or turn of events will occur...so try to be careful.
Nikki- you are the first person I've ever heard of, who said they LIKED Mercury retrograde! But, I have learned to appreciate it, at times.

Thank you so VERY much DARLING1NIKKI1 for your insight and advise. The way I see it, things go wacky during Mercury Rx. Things that aren't supposed to happen,happen. This house we put an offer in is worth $150,000 more than thier asking price. There are 4 others bidding on the same house. Under "normal" circumstances we probably wouldn't be able to afford this house. So if things go crazy during this time, and things that don't normally happen, happen, then this might be to our advantage!! emoticon Maybe that's just me being my usual optomistic self! lol And you're so right on about Spirit!
Thank you also for the reference advise. But you just pulled my chart up just like that? How do you do that? I don't want to take advantage of your talents but when looking at my chart did you see anything promising fiancially?
Again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

Mercury is transiting my 2nd house and in aspect to natal Mercury, Uranus, Saturn, Chiron and Venus during this retrograde cycle. I had not heard this before but Moses Siregar III kept emphasizing the connection between the second house and the throat and public speaking (Taurus traditionally rules the throat, I think that is the connection) at The Blast. A new perspective from what I have traditionally thought of as 2nd house stuff.

I like Mercury Rx, even being a Virgo rising. Sure, there might be some temporary setbacks involved but when and where in life do things always flow smoothly? It is up to us to handle these things with grace instead of letting them destroy our inner peace. What better time than Mercury Rx than to go back and review thought patterns?

Jerzigrl, traditionally Mercury Rx is not considered a good time to sign contracts. Just google "mercury retrograde" and see what comes up. Looking at your chart I do not see anything particularly promising regarding a move but keep working with your angels and affirmations and only Spirit knows what will be happening!

There are several threads here on this team you can check out, including one that recommends reading material and websites for learning more about astrology.

My Goodness you both know so much about astrology!! Where did you learn and where can I learn to read charts? I was born on 11/18/1962 @ 5:58 A.M. in Atlantic City, N.J.
I just put an offer in to buy a house this past Sunday emoticon See anything that says our offer will be accepted? I have the house on my vision borad and I've been receiving messages like crazy from my Angels to, "Keep the faith and a positive attitude because my prayers have been heard and are being answered! emoticon
Thanks for your patience!! ~ Patricia ~

Good point, Anna. Funny thing, I also have Mercury in Libra transitting my 4th house...where I have my Neptune...hmmm. Guess I have to watch out for misunderstandings, I would imagine?

It also depends on the sign and area of the chart where it is impacting you too. You can look at where it is going to be in your particular chart to see where it might show up especially for you, for me right now Mercury retrograde in Libra (which will be the same for everyone) is in my 4th house of home - where I don't want it to be since we are supposed to start building our house next week!

If u really want a good explanation, I would pick up any Astrology calendar - like Jim Maynard's or Llewellyn..and read their descriptions. But basically, retrograde means Backwards, and the planet of communications just Appears to go backwards in the sky...and a few things happen. People with Mercury prominent in their charts feel it the most...and their thinking is affected. "business as usual" goes out the door. Expect delays, traffic messes, computer glitches...I get a lot of wrong numbers! Things of a spiritual nature are not affected...and it is a good time, to check and re-check numbers, words, everything. My computer is already slowing down.

I'm interested!!! I'd like to know more about mercury in retrograde and what actually happens during that time. Also what exactly does it mean by "retrograde"? I know things go crazy when this happens, but why?
Thanks for any information anyone can provide! emoticon

if anyone wants to post about mercury retrograding in a couple of days....I just posted in the How's the Weather section. Interested in hearing how it affects different people. Also, I end up telling everyone and their uncle, when things go wacky, "Yep, its Mercury retrograde." People around me are sometimes appreciative, and others (like boyfriend) get sick of hearing it. Of course, he doesn't believe in Astrology! Yes, there is one person in California who doesn't believe in Astrology, and I'm with him!
