Mercury & Self-Talk

Loving Thoughts by Nicole Wong

Hi Everyone,

Anyone with Mercury as 12th house ruler, or Mercury in aspect to an outer planet, Mercury square to Ascendant, MC or planets - heck - anyone with a Mercury, may experience challenges improving their self-talk. Mostly, it's about changing a habit pattern, one that rises up when we aren't being kind, generous or loving to our SELF. The vibe that self-talk creates comes back to us, over years or even lifetimes. Changing our self-talk to thoughts of love, kindness and encouragement will change our lives. No questions asked!

As Jeannette Maw says, “The universe can only be as good to you as you are to yourself,” and face it, we aren’t always that self supportive.

What to do?

Think about your self-talk when you look in the mirror.

Are you your own best cheering squad, or do you list the faults and things that need to be ‘fixed’? What about at work? In your creativity? Your daily routine?In relationship to others?

When you lay awake at night, are you thinking of the things that went right or ‘wrong’?

Most of us are in the habit of self judgment, criticism and denigration. Just imagine what signal that sends to the universe? It’s a spell that conjures more of what we don’t want.

But there are ways to turn those harsh self judgments around, and this post is dedicated to exploring, discussing and practicing them.

Awareness

The first step is becoming aware when we get snarky with ourselves. That's all. Note it. Don't judge it. Find a way to smile and say, "There you are." It's catch and release. With. Love.

Worthiness Magic

This is one of Jeannette's tips and it really is magic.

Get a little notepad and on the first page write, I am worthy . . . write it a few times, just to get in the head space. Then go with some specifics. It might look like this:

I am worthy  . . .
I am worthy of love . . .
I am worthy of closeness . . .
I am worthy of connection. . .
I am worthy of happiness . . .
I am worthy of my family . . .
I am worthy of my power . . .
I am worthy of success . . .
I am worthy of my place in the world . . .

I am worthy . . .

Do the exercise once a day or as you feel to, and watch things shift.

Mercury Rx Example

Mercury Rx Call

Welcome the final Mercury retrograde cycle of 2016. It officially begins December 19, 2016 and ends January 8, 2017, but see the larger zone below. We'll be talking about this on the December Align with the Stars Call, and here, in the comments.  For more depth on planetary retrograde cycles, check this short youtube tutorial.

The best approach to Mercury Rx is to review, reconsider, reflect, remake, rewind, redo,  and reveal in alignment with the houses Mercury Rx is transiting. This means checking where 28 degrees of Sagittarius to 15 Capricorn lies in your natal chart. Are there any planets or points there? It may well cross two houses. Check that as well.

Out of Bounds

Mercury is Out Of Bounds for much of the Rx cycle. In what way will you push your communications, within yourself, and with others? For more on planets out of bounds of declination, check the post on Parallel Aspects.

By reflecting on the area(s) of life indicated by Mercury's apparent backward motion, you can make the most creative use of this transit.

Here are some hints on what each house represents. Need help creating your chart and finding where Mercury is traveling? Put your hand up in the comments and we'll take a look.

Mercury Rx through the houses

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

1st house - Appearance, personality traits, outlook on life

2nd house - $$$, resources, talents, peace of mind

3rd house - Teaching, learning, writing, talking, connecting

4th house - Home, family, ancestors, emotional ground

5th house - Creative expression, offspring (books/kids etc), romance

6th house - Health, pets, daily routine, magic

7th house - Socially significant relationships, contracts

8th house - sex, death, taxes, shared resources, trust

9th house - New horizons, travel, beliefs, WWW

10th house - Career, mission, profession, public relations

11th house - Friends, goals for the future, groups

12th house - 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 8th of January, the energy starts to free up and move forward at a better clip, but the Zone is from December 1, 2016 to January 27, 2017.

Mercury Rx Zone

This starts on December 1st (EST). Of course you still move forward with projects, ideas and proposals, but you do it with more awareness. Think: willingness to change.

Remember 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.

In the sign of Capricorn, the trickster turns our deepest, most powerful ambition upside down, so we can get ourselves correct.

Where is this happening in your chart?

See Align with the Stars December Call for details.
