1. What Does Mercury Retrograde mean?
The term RETROGRADE describes how Mercury appears to move in such times. During retrograde times Mercury appears to be stopped or no longer moving against the backdrop of the stars in the evening sky. In fact, Mercury appears to retrace its path by the stars it just passed – thus it appears to be going backward.
Of course, from an astronomical perspective, no planet actually reverses its direction. Our experience of seeing a planet retrace its steps, however, gives us another perspective.
Mercury Retrogrades occur at least 3 times every year.
"The slowing and reversing of Mercury’s direction gives us an opportunity to witness magic revealing itself. If the magician slows what s/he is doing way down, we can peek behind the curtain and see how the magic works. The invisible becomes visible, the unknown becomes known. It is a time for fully exploring the magic and mystery of life in a way that is not always available to us." Robert Wilkinson - A New Look at Mercury Retrograde
2. How to make the most of this Mercury Retrograde!
The planetary being Mercury is about the mind, it is also very much about communication, in particular communicating who we are – in every way & form of communication available.
A retrograde movement of Mercury gives us an opportunity to go internally and reflect in order to redefine our experience and/or to have a revelation of some sort in relation to this. Our reflection at these times often centers on the mysteries of the information in the star sign that Mercury resides within during its retrograde.
The third Mercury Retrograde of 2021 begins on 26/27th September, depending on your location. Mercury goes Retrograde in Libra (25º 28') and The Direct Station occurs in Libra (10º 07') on October 18/19.
More about Mercury Retrograde in Libra at this time...
Mercury is the planet ruling the rational mind, logic, problem-solving, and critical thinking. It reflects our learning style and our way to deal with the details of everyday life. Mercury in Libra focuses the process of perception in this reality on the relationship we have with our mind. In the realm of thought, we have the ability to transport ourselves instantly to any time or place, or situation we choose. We also have the ability to choose where we focus our thoughts.
When Mercury is Retrograde in Libra, it is about developing a more conscious relationship with our minds, as the connecting link between the visible and the invisible realms.
“I have always said that my mind can take me to the heights of heaven and the depths of hell. I have lived this truth and learned to be very diligent with mindful living and choosing how I perceive my reality and co-create my life, past, present and future. This is something well worth contemplating during Mercury Retrograde in Libra” Kyrona
Remembering that energy follows thoughts and that our thoughts become our reality is very important. Because this means that we have the power to choose what we think about and direct the flow of energy in our lives. During Mercury Retrograde in Libra, it’s an especially potent time to practice being aware of our thoughts, and how they related to the energy happening within, through and around you.
We can all become trapped by our minds. An overly busy, overly negative, overly dominant mind is very limiting and destructive. The mind cannot possibly know the true divine nature of our existence as an embodied reality, rather than a concept. We are liberated when we can access a state of grace, to go beyond the mind and tap into our higher wisdom for guidance, and thereafter using our mind to follow through in the 3D world.
Mercury in Libra is also interested in how we communicate in relationship with ourselves and with others.
• Are you conscious of your interrelatedness to every aspect of creation?
• Are you engaging in a conscious intimate relationship with yourself?
• Are you willingly growing in awareness of how you exist in relationship to the rest of life?
• Are you engaging your experiences as opportunities to learn more about yourself?”
You might find it helpful to ask yourself…
• What kind of thoughts am I thinking?
• Are they happy, uplifting thoughts, or angry, sad, blaming thoughts?
• Am I attached to negative thinking?
• How attached am I to what I believe and perceive is my reality?
• Am I willing to change my thinking by choosing to do so?
• Am I willing to shift in my beliefs and perceptions allowing for greater freedom of being?
• Am I willing to change or redirect my thoughts in ways that will change my relationship to others and to my life?
• How am I attached to what I believe and perceive is my reality? And
• If it is limiting my experience – am I willing to let that go to have a better relationship and communication experience with myself and others?
• AND THE BIG ONE ‘How can I be content with, or truly accept, what IS right now strengthening my relationship with this NOW moment?’
As mentioned, this Mercury Retrograde in Libra is activating the Behenian stars Spica & Arcturus, truly creating potent alchemical magic! Please read my additional article on what this means, key dates etc! HERE
Spica and Arcturus are zodiacally linked at 24 Libra and together represent a powerful symbol of the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine harmoniously working together as conscious equals – not equal the same but equal in the value they bring.
Working in flow with Mercury Retrograde you can find yourself being re-energised and recharged. It can be a great time for completing things that have already been started.
On the flip side, Mercury Retrograde really is not a great time for starting things, signing contracts out of the blue, etc. It is not a time for making long-term decisions and it really is advisable to postpone them wherever possible.
During Mercury Retrograde celestial flows we can find things moving illogically, or not in the way we are used to. Thus it is a time when our computers can crash or do strange things, our phones can be problematic, documents can go missing in the mail, etc.
For this reason, it is always really good practice to back up your computers and data prior to a Mercury Retrograde movement, to take time to make sure that your saving things as you work with them, to be patient when things aren’t working in relation to communications. And TO REALISE IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THESE CHALLENGES at any such moment – perhaps for you this cycle is to be one of deep reflection, rather than a time of having to make things happen out in the world of form.
So instead of perceiving Mercury Retrograde as a challenging time when you can’t get things done – how about turning the flow to your advantage?
Use the Mercury Retrograde celestial flow to actively tune into more creative expression, to review, reflect, re-consider, re-structure, re-check, re-assess, re-fine, re-focus, re-visit (you get the drift), and to be open to revelations as a result.
This approach will allow you to be in flow and harmony, so you can experience Mercury Retrograde as a great time to be creative. A time to have new insights, to focus upon and complete projects that you have already started. To really tune into the magic of what is being revealed to you, the invisible becoming visible.
Also, it is worth noting that for up to two days before Mercury officially goes retrograde & again before it officially goes direct again – MERCURY STATIONS (or appears to stand still). These times are infamous for creating a feeling of disorientation and confusion, as the energy shifts direction. If you are feeling disoriented this may be why.
