MERCURY MOVES TOWARDS HIS STATION
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
Life may seem all jumbled up and with many twists and turns along the way. Indecision caused by a shifting world is right up there as a stress point in our lives, in fact life is challenging and net really that much fun…why?
Mercury is about to retrograde, slow in motion as of today and about to station on Monday, the 23rd. Then the day of the lunar eclipse Mercury retrogrades in the same sign of the Sun, Leo.
Mercury is ruler of our rational mind, it is our ability to communicate, exchange ideas and accelerated our ability to connect and think.
Well this planet has started to go slow, all of the above qualities start to slow down, mistakes, miscommunication, and misdirection are beginning to creep into our daily routine.
The ability to think logically or even grasp certain ideas will not be easy for two reasons, one being that the communicator is not able to get the message over easily and two, the one listening will not fully understand what is being said.
In Leo Mercury has a creative mind and wants to take on a leadership role, so communications can be warm, articulate and can identify with its individual beliefs, owning the stage so to say,
When retrograde the ego can take over the warm and generous nature of Leo and many of us can become so taken with our leadership speeches which could lead to an unwanted exposure of an egotistical mind.
So take care of voicing you opinion, leader, managers and politicians may find the need to glean appreciation for all they say. During this retrograde should you need to take on the leadership role and stand up on the podium to deliver a speech, with Mercury retrograde in Leo beware of becoming so impressed with your own abilities as this could turn you into a fallen leader.
For many of us with a broken, hurt or damaged ego, this is a great time to shift yourself out of feeling humiliated or unheard. Find a way to learn to have your say. This is a good time to learn how to stand up and deliver a speech or talk, but not a good time to actually organise a workshop or talk.
At the same time Mars is retrograde, so any of you wanting any surgical procedure, hmmm try put it off till September.
With both thinking and action planets retrograde, don’t organise any new adventures, workshops or elections…things will go horribly wrong. Zimbabwe will have their elections in the heart of all this uncomfortable retrograde energy; we can expect to see rigging of elections and many things going wrong.
For all those creative writers, shew…writing will be difficult, writing this has been challenging for me and Mercury is still moving forward, but not fast. Perhaps it will be a good time to take a break from writing, and rather research content for the next article, newsletter or book.
This Mercury retrograde in Leo is a great time to look back on fun times and reconnect with people who brought out the best. It is a good time to reflect on fun and in this busy life, make time to reconnect with your fun and happy self. I sooo have a hankering to learn to paint or do something creative, perhaps take up my old hobby of needlework…not a bad time to investigate this path.
I am sure we are going to see some hilarious predictive text messages during this retrograde Mercury…just remember to click on send.
Mercury will be in his normal motion form the 30th of August and this could bring about a glorious beginning to spring.
