THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
This is a message to myself. Even if you don’t believe in the power of the planets and the effect that they have on us, everyone is affected, knowingly and unknowingly, it’s just better if you know. If you know, you know. But what do we really know?
We have 6 planets in retrograde Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, Neptune, and Chiron, all assisting us with our personal transformation and bringing about Divine interventions. Mercury retrogrades at least 3 times a year and this is our second one this year.
Unresolved issues from the first retrograde this year in March will arise. To retrograde means to revisit so the past comes back in some form, especially the things that we haven’t healed and the things we avoid.
Don’t be surprised if old friends and lovers reappear. Technology issues are likely to happen, with computers, and electricity, so be sure to save your passwords and have important data stored on a back up drive. Don’t sign anything unless you have to, or enter any legal agreements. Check over the document with a careful eye.
Don’t buy any expensive items, especially electronics, have been know to break in the future or some freak accident happens to them if purchased under retrograde.
If you get back with your ex, you may face the same challenges as you did before and those challenges will start to pop up around the post phase of this retrograde when mercury goes direct on July 31st, and we enter post-phase until August 15th.
There’s a pre-phase and post-phase in retrogrades and we are coming out of the pre-phase on Sunday, July 7th. This Mercury Retrograde is July 7th-July 31st, excluding pre and post phases.
Check on your loved ones, people are more likely to cross over during this time. Drive consciously and safely especially this Monday coming up, take care of your heart, more traffic accidents happen during this time.
Communication is off, we forget our words, we are likely to misunderstand and be misunderstood at this time. Tempers are heightened and arguments are more likely during this time.
Don’t take anything anyone says personal, it’s never about you anyway, but decide not to argue, walk away, disengage.
This is a time to re-evaluate situations in your life, and to look at yourself in the mirror. This is not a bad time, it’s a blessing to be alive.
Mercury retrograde means that the planet is moving in the opposite direction to Earth. When we are looking up at Mercury it appears to be moving backwards, but that’s not true, it’s just moving slower than we are.
When Earth passes Mercury in our orbit around the sun, Mercury is moving slower than Earth causing a magnetic pull on Earth and friction, especially with our gadgets. This happens at least 3 times a year, sometimes 4.
According to dictionary.com, to be mercurial means to be
changeable; volatile; fickle; flighty; erratic:
a mercurial nature.
animated; lively; sprightly; quick-witted.
This is where the arguments, fights, and acts of violence comes in. More violent crime acts happen in the world. Addictions come to a head during retrogrades, and people are more likely to be arrested during retrogrades. Retrogrades present these experiences so that we can evolve and grow from them. This is not a good time to make life altering decisions. Remember, revisit, things seem to have a reverse effect, especially your words.
Cancellations are expected, you are likely to be late, or forget, so double check your plans and time. You are more likely to overbook yourself. Things go array at times, and don't go as planned. I've had 3 televisions broken by children, purchased during Mercury Retrograde. I've had a phone screen crack during Mercury Retrograde. If you have a mechanical issue with your car that you haven't attended to, it is more likely to show itself completely during Mercury Retrograde. Last Mercury Retrograde our transmission on our truck went out. Flats are more likely to happen, cars breaking down, and home appliances going out.
It is said to not get married during Mercury Retrograde. Well before I knew anything about the planet's effects on us, I did many things on the do not list under Mercury Retrograde, for one, I got married. The wedding was a memory that I was unhappy about for a long time because everything that could go wrong, did. People were late, arguing, telling secrets, aggravated, and spatting with each other. Money was an issue just like in typical retrograde fashion. The owner of the venue where we were married was saying that we didn't pay for services that we did pay for. I brought some belongings to the venue that came up missing, and she claimed that I never brought them. She was rude to me, the guests, and she waited until the wedding day to do so, during the wedding and the reception, she was horrible.
Guests who were prepaid for the wedding didn't show up because they were hung over from the party that we decided to throw the night before and for other unknown reasons. The party ended at 5am, what were we thinking?
We were all dragging at the wedding looking exhausted. Even though I left before 5am to go to my hotel room, I was still extremely tired because I was ill, and I didn't know I was. My friend had to help me bathe and get dressed. She kept saying, "you are going to be late." I was dragging in pain. Young, bad decisions had nothing to do with mercury's retrograde.
It is said that getting married during mercury retrograde brings more challenges in the marriage, and wow have we had a great deal of challenges. But those same challenges have made us stronger individually and together. You have to work on yourself, your personal nature in order to be successful in any relationship.
My father and father-in-law both passed away during Mercury Retrogrades, and both of these cross overs sent me into a deep state of grief, triggering illness. I miss them both, however I do have to be unselfish and recognize that they are no longer suffering.
It is said that people born under mercury retrograde or heavy mercury in their charts are least affected by it.
If you are going to check anyone during this time, make sure that it is yourself.
