In light of yesterday's giant Facebook/IG/WhatsApp tech malfunction, I thought it might be a good time for a Mercury RX check in.
Here is a reminder list of what to expect when Mercury RX is in play.
More on working with this month's Mercury retrograde....
This week, Mercury is approaching the heart of this retrograde. It will arrive for its meeting with the sun and big "aha" moment on the 9th. Until then, things are building. After that, we will be on the "downhill side" of the retrograde, so to speak. (It won't be as active/intense.)
Being our final Mercury RX for 2021, in an air sign, during a big air sign year.
With January's "grand conjunction" between Jupiter and Saturn at 0 degrees Aquarius, we kicked off a new 20 year cycle but also a new 200 year cycle of these conjunctions happening every 20 years in air signs - for the past 200 year cycle, they have been focused on the earth signs.
Also, this year's main energetic signature is the 3 squares between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus - Saturn wants to bring structure and rules to innovative Aquarius, and Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, is shaking things up in earthy and material- and security-oriented Taurus.
2021 is a year of working out the way forward into the new - it's a year of transition (from earth to air, more specifically).
(Plus we are preparing for Pluto to start making its transition out of Capricorn, where it has been since 2008, into Aquarius, in just a couple of years - a huge earth to air transition.)
Mercury in retrograde slows down our everyday communications and travels to help us review our thinking and communications.
The key here, especially through this weekend, is SLOW DOWN.
When we run into tech issues and scheduling conflicts and communication mishaps this week, it is our cue to slow down. It may feel like a hindrance, but Mercury is actually helping us. Everything that comes up now is an opportunity to work out hidden kinks in things and get it ironed out for later.
With Mercury RX and this new moon conjunct Mars all in Libra, look to the house Libra rules in your natal chart to get more info on how this is affecting you personally ~ what area of life does Libra rule in your chart? That's where this is coming through in your life. If it is making aspects, especially squares or oppositions, to significant placements in your chart, then it's personal for you, and likely coming through to you via people and situations in your life, through the area of life represented by Libra's house placement.
There's a lot of "noise" going on with all of this planetary action in Libra, and with Pluto and Saturn both stationing direct this week, but ultimately, Mercury is the mind, thinking, and communications, and Libra wants harmony, balance, peace, and cooperation.
Libra is about partnership ~ having harmonious relationships with others.
Mercury retrograde wants to refine. (It is also getting help from Pluto and Jupiter to helps us transform and expand our thinking by early November.)
This isn't time to push, it is time to listen, allow, and flow.
Remember, we are still in the dark moon today, the new moon is Wednesday, Pluto is in the midst of stationing direct, Saturn is preparing to station direct Sunday, and we don't get to Mercury's big "aha moment" until Saturday.
We don't have all of the information yet, and we are in the deepest point of the lunar cycle.
Tune in now, turn inward.
What is Mercury RX helping you with?
What are you being advised to wait on and not force this week?
How and where are you being shown to create more harmonious and balanced relationships with others?
What are you releasing with this dark moon in order to move towards that more fully?
Keep the faith! Know that light is coming on the other side of this new moon and this weekend, and things will look different with that illumination. We are in the process of moving forward.
