Mercury Retrograde and October Eclipses: Facing the Shadow
Mercury retrograde gets a bad press, but it can offer us a shift in perspective.
Mercury goes retrograde 3 times a year, and is well known as a bad time with problems with communications.
Beforehand we are advised to back up our computers and delay buying a new phone/computer, or signing contracts until Mercury moves direct again.
However not all Mercury retrograde periods are the same.
The last retrograde cycle of the year is extra potent as Mercury retrogrades back from Scorpio ruled by Mars and Pluto, into its compatible air sign of Libra.
In 2015 all 3 retrogrades will be in air signs.
Mercury is the fastest moving planet in our solar system, and information bombards us every day. In Mercury retrograde periods we are being asked to slow down and absorb the messages, to digest and take stock.
It’s an inward journey.
This year the next Mercury retrograde starts on October 4th at 18.01 BST at 2 degrees of Scorpio. It will move forward again on October 25th at 19.17 GMT at 16 degrees Libra.
It entered the ‘shadow’ period on September 14th at 16 degrees of Libra. Then the return ‘shadow’ from October 26th until November 10th. These can also be difficult times, depending on what part of your chart is being activated.
