I will say this as many times as it takes for people to catch on! What the majority of you are spreading about Mercury Retrograde is half true! I am not here to chastise anyone. But seriously its time to open your minds to evolution on many things but particularly this topic because after all the domain of Mercury is the MIND!!
If you are going to chose to believe in Astrology then you need to take a look at Mythology. Read up on Hermes. What he was, what did he do? He was a messenger of the Gods. Bringing messages to humanity from the Gods aka the other planets! This is crucial in understanding Mercury! Whether you are a planetary magician, or an astrologer or just someone who follows it! This is seriously something that you need to understand!
Mercury being a messenger first & foremost then comes the fact that this planet is what enables us all to comprehend anything. Name it! Anything. He or seen as Hermes, Thoth, etc, he brought to us the alphabet, numerology, even astrology, magick etc. This means that everything you can learn from or any channel you use to understand something with. He made it possible for you to do. Think, speak… manifestation of the mind. ETC. Mercury.
Next comes the fact that Mercury is a trickster spirit. This means that not all that you comprehend is to be true. He is pointing to the fact that you need to take responsibility in how you chose to perceive! That many times we are wrong, but only to enable us to find the correct way, correct answer, and so on! This enables evolution.
Taking all of this into consideration, his domain is something that he brings to you but is filtered by the domains of all the other planets that are following him. So wherever the others are? Those domains being effects by whatever sign the planet is? That directs where Mercury will be whether direct or retrograde! So everything that you believe to go wrong during retrograde isn’t solely the fault of Mercury. The so called “fault” is of the other planets but also a percentage of that goes to how you PERCEIVE everything!
Mercury is asking you to pay attention! Those things that go wrong? Also go wrong with he is direct! Direct or retrograde isn’t the point!! Pay attention, again!!
Mercury is only the messenger, why blame the messenger? The fact that you can comprehend at all is given by him but what you can understand was approved by the others!
Also keep in mind that RETROGRADE is illusion! This is the trickster part! This means that anything that happens while Mercury is in retrograde is illusion. It is HOW we are perceiving it that matters & is what will be formed into manifestation!
How you will experience the effect of the retrograde depends upon the sign the retrograde is in. While the illusion is altogether false, there is a sense of introversion of energy. But it doesn’t mean that you don’t receive the usual energy of this domain, it means that things may happen (according to your own comprehension level, until you chose otherwise) that will urge you to follow suit. Meaning that you will be forced to invert your attention.
LOOK WITHIN!!! Look to yourself! Figure out to manifest the energy you wish to receive or to throw out into the cosmos, tho tread lightly, in order to see the results you are looking for!
Mercury is the magician! He teaches us to cause change according to OUR OWN WILL!!
This is HIS/HER domain!!
