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!!
The Elements will be the death of me. A gust of wind will come to influence the air within my lungs to leave me– but to only return momentarily to cause a flicker of my firey flame that is the primal individual aspect of my very soul which heats my heart of a warm rhythm that pumps crimson water through my veins. This flame flickers again & again until it was snuffed, taken, cleanly & quickly by the air of the wind gust that is the intellectual & awareness of my soul. It carries this primal Scarlett flame up into the heavens. Logic, air, & heat is gone from my physical body. Now water comes to begin disintegrating my physical flesh, my body down into the soil of the Earth. The Earth–regardless of where I am located begins to absorbed the watery realm of emotion that is breaking down the physical being of all I ever was in my prior life. This movement & cooperating between water & Earth are the two aspects of the rest of my soul that is breaking down what was no longer needed to serve this Earth. These two elements finish their work once together as one the part of me in hades has completed the working through of the parts of me that are no longer needed. Reborn & refreshed. As I gave ejergy & recieved while in the Hades realm in order to restore the natural law. i am now to ascend to meet my other half of my soul which is the oneness of fire & air. All four elements together at last. Now we can plan a better & more evolve lifetime than the last. Because of choice to align these forces and equal them all.
Mercury in Leo. Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo at Thu Jul 26 2018
This position is asking you to pay attention to communication. Within yourself & others. Are you speaking & experessing yourself more freely than usual? Or are other people?Or are you very dependent upon transportation? Is something about is causing your stress or even ruling your stress? If so, watch it! And balance it with astral travel. Physical travel & astral travel are equally important. This also means Mercury is very chatty with us. And is teaching us a lesson. Are you listening as much as speaking?
Venus in Virgo, enters Libra at Mon Aug 06 2018
Is your emotional realm or creative juices in more of a low key intellectual tone lately? Is your feminine side no matter if your male or female a bit more in tune with the masculine? Do feel a sense of balance between Feminine & masculine energies lately? As Mars is in aquarious (retrograde). Are you thinking before you act more than usual? Thinking about what to create before you create! Feeling a bit more selfless in love lately I order to teach important causes that are of this domain? Pay attention.
Mars (retrograde) in Aquarius, enters Capricorn at Sun Aug 12 2018 –means that our masculine side is much less impulsive, aggressive, and we are thinking our emotions relating our actions, sexual impulses, defense & war, we have taken a break in our argumentative ways & are rethinking our steps we normally take without thought to the true root of our actions which is our emotions relating to the things we do in our lives. The topics or people we protect or defend. Or even feel challenged by or maybe even hate or judge. This is good.
Jupiter in Scorpio, enters Sagittarius at Thu Nov 08 2018 07:38
Jupiter is our planet of good luck & higher learning & guidance. Jupiter can be more or less peachy in any sign. However Scorpio has been rather limiting thougg Jupiter knows this is needed & he’s been taking advantage of it. Since he’s been retrograde for a while he is relieved and refresh to be direct again. Looking forward to be in sag soon. But Jupiter is relating to our sp concepts. Our spiritual evolution. Our wisdom. How it’s evolving etc. Its been very limited but since being in retrograde many thinga were question and worked through. Feeling optimistic and looking forward to finding more spiritual freedom in Sagittarius. Good luck & a gateway to openness is coming. Be open to this.
Saturn (retrograde) in Capricorn. Saturn goes Direct in Capricorn at Wed Sep 05 2018
Saturn Retrograde in capricorn means that man-made ideals, the seeds of man that have been and/or planted are being altered. In other words. Plans are being changed deep within the minds of humanity. Needed change is aware of within the mind of humanity. And plans that have been normally rigid… Are beginning to see little bits of change. The plans are relating to the physical world & how it’s seen, experienced & built. Stop owning time. It belongs to Saturn.
Uranus in Taurus, goes Station Retrograde in Taurus at Tue Aug 07 2018 12:49
The planet of evolution, expansion, rebellion in Taurus is very conflicted. This conflict between what is familiar & what needs to evolve within the realms of luxory, flexibility in ownership of materialistic things will be test & challenged. Importance of Money will be tested. The illusion of choice will be revealed. Stop choosing “this or that”. Combine opposites.
Neptune(retrograde) in Pisces, goes Direct in Pisces at Fri Nov 23 2018
Our deepest emotions are being refined past the limits of our awareness. Faith is being asked. Faith will become a largest key that will demand to be considered in some time. Imagination will be presenting itself with time.
Pluto (retrograde) in Capricorn. Pluto goes Direct in Capricorn
Hades/subconscious is doing restructuring of order within this realm. Deep changes are occurring at a sucboncious level that relates to transformstion that permeates all of the above. It may be worth taking note of it.
Well I’ve personally come to a point in my path where I feel I must redefine Satan. Since I’ve come full circle, When I was spending time with Lucifer I was blinded by the light so to speak then hekate came along and I was blinded by the paths. Lol
I came to point in understanding my path I then suddenly understood I was misunderstanding my personal point in satanism as i refer to myself as Luciferian. I never truly left Satanism. It just needed to be contoured.
It needed to be personalized for me. I needed to be shown what my path was for myself personally & what to learn & teach others. I was blinded by the enlightenment.
But the Hekate & Lucifer told me to go back to Satan & redifine this force. i was like I have no idea what the fuck y’all are talking about, Craig. Lol
And little by little I began to see again. I began to remember how I said Satan when I first started, half way through then just before Lucifer came into the picture, then it seemed as if Satan disintegrated into nothing. He began to seem like he was all illusion.
And yes, most of him was and is. But that doesn’t mean he wasn’t an entity or isnt no longer. Then I remembered how much of what I learned from Satan was aspects of myself. As if Satan was a mirror of me. My own darkside. My fears. My lightside. My love. My hate. My ignorance,my awareness, my drive to rebell against what i had been told in order to learn, my will to nilhilate false hoods into to find truth. Etc.
Recently when I was writing in my book of shadows, I began writing about Satan. And Satan reveals himself to be a SHE. First time I had ever truly experienced Satan as a she aside from Lilith. This is when I really began to understand that most of who Satan is, is myself. All except a tiny red flame that is whom Satan is. Satan’s true self is a Djinn-like entity that can shape-shift into whatever he or she needs to accomplish whatever goal is ahead of him or her or it. But I would say her favorite form is a red Dragon when she is being the Fire Guardian Dragon!
The deepest part of Satan belongs to him or herself. And isnt meant for us to understand unless he/she bestows that information upon us.
In essence Satan is Unknown. And expects respect when you come this far in your journey if one follows it in a similar way that I have. Or perhaps it is different for each person. But at this point.
She is showing me that respect that I need to show the unknown part of myself, herself, & this part in others as well as the Universe around us. Because it is unknown it deserve a basic level of respect.
Do not intervene in its will to do things, how to do things, when to do things. Etc. Because there is always a part of everyone & everything that cannot be known by another except by that specific entity or individual or place.
In closing, briefly in order to quickly redifine Satan? Satan is a mirror of humanity, as one & individually, but is also the opposite of humanity. Isn’t humanity at all but is the Scarlett flame of the physical will that resides within all & also is the black flame within the void. The will of the darkness. Ignorance. But also the will of knowledge.
If you know anything about this Baphomet which you can read my essay on him here. The entity is very similar to Baphomet. But is she or he the same? No.
Satan asks to remember to not get caught up in knowledge. While it is power. There is also power in the Unknown. To be nameless. To be nothing. To be blackness. To be of the void. There is power in everything & no-thing.
Do not want self righteous in your logic, in your imagination, in your light, or enlightenement. Because there is something to be gained in all existence & in the epitome of what you cannot or may not ever understand.
Allow room for that!
There are many things that I would say MOST people need to understand about cursing, particularly those of a right hand path. (remember I am of both right & left yet I am of neither.) But for starters, one must truly understand what positive & negative are. Because honestly? Most of us don’t even know what that is! You don’t even have to be brought up as Christian to be confused about this! Because this is something that is corrupted in our society as it is without the obvious influence of Christianity. However I am certain that is where it stemmed from.
