Mercury Retrograde

Mercury turned retrograde — June 7, 2014, in the sign of Cancer.

Mercury turns direct — July 1, 2014, in the sign of Gemini.

Mercury turned retrograde on June 7, in the sign of Cancer and Mercury backpedals on its journey back through the sign of Gemini starting June 17.  During this retrograde, you’re going to experience two energy shifts, one in the sign of Cancer, and the other on the sign of Gemini.

This is not a good time to sign any contracts, start a new romantic or business relationship. However, if you find yourself experiencing an unexpected snafu and need to repair something, than you’ll have to roll with it!

You’ll need to postpone any major purchases or big commitments right now because you might change your mind when Mercury turns direct. You’re going to find yourself reevaluating everything, and people might show up from the past or issues that did not get resolved in the past might spring out again.

The situation you are dealing with might feel secretive or unpredictable. Everything that was hidden from you might come out into the spotlight and surprise you. The energies are related to the Cancer zodiac sign or the High Priestess (the secret keeper) and the energies of the Gemini zodiac sign or the Lovers (unpredictable until a decision is made).

Retrograde motion slows everything down and makes you wait. During retrograde motion you’ll be fighting against Mercury’s slowness because the planet is backpedaling and bringing out unexpected snafus with communication and travel. During this period, there is much gossip, unexpected messages, many glitches related to the radio, phone, computer and internet, as well as local transportation glitches with cars, busses, planes and trains. Writers block occurs, with your mind feeling clouded and stuck, and unusual weather patterns and floods will cause delays with communication and transportation.

 

The Two Energy Shifts

Front Matter, The High Priestess, High PriestessThe High Priestess is related to the zodiac sign of Cancer (the element of water). Cancer is ruled by the Moon (the epidermal kaleidoscope of emotions, feelings, wants and needs that fluctuate during the phases of the Moon).

The Cancer Personality = Moon (sensitive and receptive), Pluto (intuitive and the keeper of secrets) and Neptune (boundaries, loyal, protective and cautious).

The High Priestess is also related to the phases of the Moon: The New Moon (not visible – making a wish and starting a new plan). The First Quarter Moon (growing in size – you are action oriented – pushing ahead to a testing point). The Full Moon (wishes come true – or the release of what is not working). The Third Quarter Moon (shrinking in size – strong beliefs with what you want – you will put these beliefs in action or let go and release what binds you).

 

The Lovers, Chapter 1, LoversLovers is related to the Gemini zodiac sign (the element of air). Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury (the planet of communication and travel). Mercury represents the speed with how you think, talk, communicate, travel, write and analyze.

The Gemini Personality = Mercury (able to speak, write and communicate with confidence, quick to act, logical and rational), Venus (the risk taker, social, needs a union, not a loner, loves adventures and new experiences) and Uranus (strong mind, witty, frank with the words that are spoken, high standards and unpredictable).

      Hello Babe,

      So sorry to hear all this! We all got hit with 3 strong transits in April, and they are really messing with everyone! We are also in Mercury retrograde right now too, its not an easy time.

      I am here if you want to come live chat for a reading, will look at your astrology path and pull a tarot spread for you. The transit in April hit your north node = where you were headed and your south node = what was going to fall away from you. It hot you really hard in your relationship sector (personal and career relationships).

      So what happened to you came from the 3 transits in April because it is redirecting you.

      Love Safina
