5 Things You Need to Know to Master Mercury Retrograde in 2018

MRxDatesBusiness18.19“As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a strong believer in the importance of cycles. You’d better try to understand them, because all of your timing and often your luck is tied up in them.” ~Former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca

There are regular periodic cycles that astrology always promises will change our times, so aligning peace of mind is absolutely necessary to better understand the benefits that can be brought to our lives. One such cycle is Mercury Retrograde, the astrological offering for review, reflection, redo and release.

Who is Mercury anyway and what does “Retrograde” mean?
Mercury -also known as The Messenger as our closest inner planet from above- is in charge of our movement, electricity, communications, thinking, mentality, along with any and all exchanges of information down here below.

Approximately 3 times each year, he retraces his measured degrees within his current zodiac transit for about 3 weeks.

Think of a person -or in this case a mass of a planet in our Universal energy field- placing a blindfold on and then walking backwards. Now you get the basic gist of “retrograde” and it’s effects. Is it starting to make sense our actions and events just might become ultimately disarrayed as a result of this cycle?

2018’s Mercury Retrogrades (MRx) Cycles


22 March to 15 April in Aries | Approach begins: 08 March

26 July to 19 August in Leo | Approach begins: 07 July

12 August to 05 September in Virgo/Leo | Approach begins: 24 July

15 November to 06 December in Sagittarius/Scorpio | Approach begins: 28 Oct


5 Things You Need to Know About Mercury Retrograde
1.   You are meant to embrace change & reflection.

2.   Total Hours of MRx in 1 Year = The Hours We Sleep in 1 Year.

3.   Each MRx cycle is different in it’s requests, no two are alike.

4.   Human error is highest under this passage.

5.   Being friends with PATIENCE allows victory for any MRx cycle.


Added Bonus Cycles of Reflection in 2018


Mars Retrograde 26 June to 27 August
2018’s second Mercury Retrograde 26 July to 19 August will be “extra reflective” as it will run simultaneously during a Mars Retrograde cycle. Mars is our planet that guides our motivations, drives, conclusions, aggressive action and abilities to express courage in life.

Like Mercury -when he isn’t looking where he is going- the energetic affects of Mars in a cycle of review must be deeply understood in order to navigate through with success with anything you are planning. Being properly prepared for Summer 2018 will be a wise move by any soul. Equally, we will experience 3 Eclipses (Solar Eclipse 12 July, Lunar Eclipse 27 July and Solar Eclipse 11 August) that will absolutely amp up the season with plenty of timing is everything advice that will need to be carefully adhered to.

Venus Retrograde 05 October to 16 November
2018’s third and final Mercury Retrograde 16 November to 06 December will start just as a Venus Retrograde cycle concludes that will remain under it’s Shadow passage through 17 December. Venus is our sagely muse that guides our values, money, beauty, luxury, relationships, and compassion in life.

Like Mercury -when she isn’t looking where she is going- the energetic affects of Venus in a cycle of review must be deeply understood in order to navigate through with success with anything you are planning. Being properly prepared for Autumn 2018 will be a wise move by any soul. Learn more about Venus Retrograde in 2018: Redefining the Value of Power and Alignment.

What You Need to Know to Have a Smooth September 2016

“Those that fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” ~Benjamin Franklin

Now that our summer season is here, it’s time for scheduling fun and relaxation into our lives. As back to school mode approaches by September, energetic requests from above will ask us to air on the side of caution down here below.

2016’s 3rd Mercury Retrograde cycle of reflection begins 30 August, with the Approach starting 09 August. The latter part of our summer will be riddled -as per the Mercury Retrograde (Rx) norm- with all kinds of changes running within the span of communications, movement and travel-oriented activities. Often, the Approach passages are seemingly just as challenged with technical glitches and energetic shifts as the Retrograde passage itself as we experience the usual “preview of coming Rx attractions.”

As we saw from 28 April to 22 May -when Mercury last Retrograded in Taurus as Mars Retrograde equally pursued- there where more than our fair share of upsets, alteration of plans and plenty of stagnation that flavored this period of time.

Our next Mercury Retrograde unfolds in the sign of Virgo during the last couple days of August throughout the majority of September. Like our last one in Taurus was coupled with Mars Retrograde, this one in Virgo will be equally intense on a much more emotional level.

September brings us another pair of powerful Eclipses- with a Solar one in Virgo on the 1st and a Lunar one in Pisces on the 16th. It is another critical “timing is everything” tip to understand how these cycles are personally affecting you or your business. Question is….

Will you be ready for more potent shifts and honor the request to engage in reflection and release?

What kinds of long-term projects are you possibly planning to launch this September?

You might, after really discovering how Mercury Retrograde works, wish to rethink those original plans.

After all, who isn’t looking to become more efficient and make wiser use of their time in today’s modern day world?

It is an astrological fact: more people foolishly waste their time and energy under Mercury Retrograde than during any other times of the year.

I don’t know about you, but there is nothing worse these days than feeling time has been lost or proper use was not made of it.

As natural as back to school mode and starting things back up in September is within the typical business world, it most certainly will not be a ride that most will find runs smoothly without the full awareness of how to properly navigate through Mercury’s 3rd opportunity to take a rest and recharge passage.

I sincerely invite you now to please join my mission allowing you to proclaim you are Mastering Mercury Retrograde.  There is nothing more important to me than helping you to align your peace of mind in what will be more extremely changing times during 2016 as we are winding down the last weeks of summer.

Redefining Your Mercury Retrograde Beliefs

MRxNYTimes.SharitaStarNew York Times writer Kristin Dombek should be given all the credit in the world for bringing more awareness of  Mercury Retrograde into the public eye with her article, Retrograde Beliefs, published 09 January 2015 in The New York Times Magazine. We only wished she did a little more homework with an astrologer that helped her understand the cycle’s actual requests.

Comment No. 21:

What people do not understand about Mercury Retrograde is that it is first and foremost, a cycle of reflection if you have a good astrologer helping you to use the passage to your advantage within your life. That’s it. There need not be fear, or “freaking out” about what is energetically happening from this absolutely yes “illusion” from astronomy’s point of view. If you aren’t a person that can have fun with flexibility, you tend to feel resistance under any Mercury Retrograde cycle.

No matter what, astrology will see through the illusion and measures Mercury under any Retrograde to go “backwards” in his degrees within the Zodiac. All planets do this periodically. Retrograde asks us to consciously take time to review & renew, and be just a bit more mindful about decisions for our future. Mercury’s Retrograding hours over one year’s time also equals the same number of hours we sleep on average over 1 calendar year.

By the way, just a complete astrological side note. Do your timing research and when “MRx” was happening throughout history and you’ll discover the infamous “unsinkable ship” The Titanic sank under a Mercury Retrograde cycle- and communications where more than “askew” upon that unfortunate journey. “Oddly” out of all the major money players of that day and age, J.P. Morgan, was not aboard as originally planned, due to advice from Astrologer Evangeline Adams. Perhaps you’ve heard his famous quote:

“Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.”

5 Questions to Ask for Mercury Retrograde, October 2014

Returning to Transforming Our Understanding
Mercury’s Reflection in Scorpio/Libra

Mercury’s Reflection in Scorpio & Libra, 04 to 25 October 2014
We know you’ve already been feeling the turbulence of Mercury Retrograde (MRx) coming since the Approach began 14 September, certainly calling loud and clear that all bets for forward motion are off, even a few days before it officially begins. Being in awareness about Mercury’s Approach & The 5 Things You Need To Know, are you now ready for some necessary review, renew and release?

1. Where Am I Requested to Return to Transform My Understanding?
Mercury affects two separate areas of our lives as he backtracks through Scorpio until 10 November, and then finishes off his review and redo passage in Libra until 25 October.

2. Where Is Review, Rerouting and Retreat Favored For Me?
While Mercury Retrograde affects just about anything that moves in life, looking at the simplicity of your Sun Sign points to one specific area of life you’ll be personally asked to honor our Messenger’s requests. Your natal birth chart, which is cast from the time you are born, determines the other.

3. How Can I Reap those “RE” Rewards?
Remember, this is the true time to get our dictionaries out and revel in the “re” action words, for Mercury’s backwards motion from 02 degrees Scorpio back to 17 degrees Libra will only cause resistance if we do not heed this mighty call.

As our Messenger backtracks within The Scales -the sign of relationships guided by the cardinal leadership of air- it will be the true test of recognizing the stirs of information circulating around that may trick us into being highly indecisive, easily swayed, and simply relating to what is right in front of us.

Double Layer Cake of Reflection Begins 08 October
It will be equally wise to check in with your LunarOScope 08 October for the Full Moon in Aries, coupled by a Lunar Eclipse, which will also ask we pioneer in further reflection in unusual ways where The Ram will cast off completion and release, as another waning phase begins. The Moon Void of Course periods over 08 October to 25 October equally cast off a “triple layer cake” of reflective request.

4. Do I Foolishly Think Mercury Retrograde Doesn’t Affect Me?
Those wishing to react and remain in resistance to the normal flux of changes that Mercury’s “vacation mode” causes involving our schedules, routines, communications, information exchanges and any mechanism that moves -deciding instead to go forward with long term plans- will find themselves with intense lessons to learn as all will end up being riddled with errors.

Bonus Soul Homework! Ask Yourself: 



1. What old projects are not done where Scorpio and Libra affect my life?
2. What can I recreate in these areas of my life?

3. How can research benefit me?

4. Who haven’t I spoken to from this area of my life in a while?

5. What responsibilities here have I forgotten about?

5. What Will I Do and Not Do for Success Under Mercury Retrograde?
DO:
*Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, communications & schedules to occur suddenly
*Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
*Back-up information, replace or upgrade technology already in place
*Spend time in the RE’s:
Relax, Rest, Reread, Rewrite, Revisit, Reconnect, Reflect, Redo, Repair, Recharge!
*Have Plan B (and Plan C, D or even E if necessary) always ready to go
*Gravitate to Responding vs. Reacting!

DON’T:
*“Freak out” when changes come up
*Rush: speaking, driving, whatever involves movement in your life
A great practice is to take pause & count to 10 before doing anything!
*Sign important documents
*Initiate or buy anything new that you wish to have long-term success with.
ie: Get married, start just about anything- especially a relationship, business, adventure.

READY for more pondering about our Messenger when he becomes the ‘The Trickster?
What’s Really in a Word? Mercury Retrograde
We are taking a “detour” from our normal chain of monthly word pondering to place our attention upon the request of astrology’s current cycle of MERCURY RETROGRADE. Let’s see how this title affirms how much we really can spell out the truth and learn more about the request to step into regeneration within our lives.
