Mercury Retrograde 2009



Mercury Goes Retrograde, Sept 7 – 29, 2009

Astrology is a tool or map that can make you aware of patterns, like those that come during a Mercury retrograde.  Just observe and see what happens, and be open to the past returning for review

In general, Mercury rules thinking, perception, processing, disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation.  By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially those who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips, spin doctors, teachers, travelers, tricksters and thieves.

Mercury retrograde gives us time to catch up with ourselves, and take a look back.  Something from the past might return in a different form.  This can mean people, ideas or buried insights that need to surface for you to move forward.  Often it is felt as a contemplative time, depending on the sign, a chance to go over old ground again, to claim what you missed the first time.

It is best to avoid making set plans during Mercury Retrograde.  This means being cautious about things like signing contracts, forming partnerships and corporations.  What gets put in writing at this time may turn out to need serious revising after Mercury goes direct. 

Sometimes we gloss over things that pushed buttons at the time, but which we let slide.  What seemed not worth the trouble may reveal itself as a major issue in need of our attention.  Mercury retrograde is a time for review, when the underlying patterns come to light.

Some dreams and goals get lost in the hectic rush of daily life.  Mercury Retrograde can be a time of reflection on those longings.  This makes it a time for the soul to ponder its destiny.  . 

Mercury retrograde, like any cosmic aspect, affects people differently, depending on where it hits their personal charts.  Some people actually prosper under a retro Mercury, especially if Mercury is retrograde but otherwise well-aspected in their birth charts.  It is also a time when matters begun under a previous retro period will come to fruition, or completion as the case may be.  Firm decisions that have been previously made when Mercury is traveling normally through the zodiac may be implemented or finalized while Mercury is retrograde without too much worry, for experience shows that this can be done without undue problems arising.

The next time Mercury Retrograde will occur will be December 26, 2009 – January 15, 2010.
