Hey everyone! I'm boosting the Mercury Rx post to the top so we can all share our experiences.

As per Mercury Rx Astro-LOA Flash - Drop the sails and relax into a becalmed phase with Mercury Retrograde. Yes, Mercury, messenger of the gods, is Stationary/Rx in Virgo, then moves backwards into Leo until Sept 5. It's a time to rethink your steps, reconsider offers, reflect on your choices and redo where necessary. Sure, mechanics and technology can go a bit haywire, communications, keys, tickets, bookings, contracts, letters and words too. Don't fight it. Reflect. This is a time of readjustment. Tally ho!

Quick Note: Within minutes of me posting this, power went out in the laundry room, causing a fuse to blow that took out the entire block. Waiting for the electrician now .... you have to love this, right? Mercury is Rx in my first (appearances? not great when you can't wash clothes!) and going back over my Asc into the 12th. OH and don't forget to look at your SOLAR HOUSES. This is my SOLAR Fourth House  - power out in the HOME!

Here are the Mercury Rx Details

Screen Shot 2017-08-12 at 9.07.27 AMYou can see that the HOT degrees are between 28 Leo and 11 Virgo. Ring a bell? 28 Leo is the degree of the total solar eclipse later this month. If you have ANYTHING within 7 degrees of this point (21 Leo to 5 Virgo) it will be LIT UP.

How can you honor this the planet, point or house involved? Pre-pave the experience you want and see where it takes you.

Mercury Rx through the houses

This is where you want to contemplate, rethinking your previous ideas, approach or beliefs.

First - Appearance, personality traits, outlook on life

Second - $$$, resources, talents, peace of mind

Third - Teaching, learning, writing, talking, connecting

Fourth - Home, family, ancestors, emotional ground

Fifth - Creative expression, offspring (books/kids etc), romance

Sixth - Health, pets, daily routine, magic

Seventh - Socially significant relationships, contracts

Eighth - sex, death, taxes, shared resources, trust

Ninth - New horizons, travel, beliefs, WWW

Tenth - Career, mission, profession, public relations

Eleventh - Friends, goals for the future, groups

Twelfth - unconscious, dreams, giving and receiving, meditative states

Remember, Mercury Retrograde is not a time to push forward until you reTHINK your goals and actions. AFTER the 5th of September, the energy starts to free up and move forward at a better clip, but it doesn't clear the zone until the 19th of September. Full steam ahead then!

Mercury Rx is Trickster energy.

The trickster comes along when we are stuck, feeling trapped, or out of touch with authenticity of SELF. When we get into such a state, sooner or later the Trickster will blow the doors and windows open so we can breathe fresh air again.

When the Trickster shows up, an experience of synchronicity is at hand, but it can seem, at first, like strife.

Like in the story of the uninvited guest ...

Thanks to Walt Disney, we are familiar with Sleeping Beauty.  Although the focus is on Prince Charming, love’s first kiss, and HEA, the action of the tale comes from the curse of the uninvited guest. The 13th fairy.  It is this neglected enchantress that causes the entire kingdom to fall into unconsciousness.  (Where 'kingdom = Self).

The message has to do with neglect and the kinds of synchronicities evoked by the 'Trickster'.

This is not a reference to neglecting health, diet or exercise and then suffering the physical consequences.  It's about neglecting the needs of our inner world and the consequences of the oversight.

Mercury Rx can be a time where neglected content of the psyche comes up into consciousness. Look the the house(s) Mercury is transiting backwards through for hints on what this content might be.

Feel free to post questions and comments here.

Happy Mercury Rx and Eclipse Season!
