This has been a very difficult Mercury Retrograde.

One good thing, it did give me the opportunity to get organized and put a lot of my papers in order, both at work and personal, tidy up and catch up with some overdue tasks. 

Mercury/Saturn helped with that I think, organizing.

My mercury retrograde had been fine, with occasional annoyances like getting shingles or forgetting things.

Now, when I’m scheduled to file taxes, there’s a tornado warning in the area.

I’m so happy its over.  It seems like anything I tried to do didn’t turn out well and now has to be redone.  I’m so glad I did my taxes before Mercury went Retrograde.  Thank you Elsa for the tip!

I hate it when that happens. It happens once in a while to everyone. Frustrating! yell

Although it is technically over, I still feel its presence.. shadow until May 3rd.

This one has been rough on me.

A lot of delays, had missed flights, missing parts at work, power outages, and a break up…

Not relaxing until I feel this tide over…

 

This one was in my 12th house

I’m coming up with theories about why just one single Mercury Retrograde has to be so difficult. What’s da finking?

Now that it is out of its shadow zone I’m taking stock of this retrograde.

The problems during this retrograde mean that I have to be a little more careful with my health. Since it happened in my twelfth house and from experience it seems to me that things that happen in the twelfth house follow the whole year on after they cross the ascendant, I imagine I will have to keep an eye on my health for the entire year!

Why is your quoting of me in italics but my quoting of you is not?

Thankyou for asking! 🙂

I have beliefs that are somewhat unforgiving I suppose about karma. If someone comes along and shoots you for instance and you… justifiably then get back at them, you do still pick up karma for all the negative feelings/ emotions and other things you went through in order to get back at them.

So I was thinking that during the period Uranus was going over that same place in Aries, was just before things started kicking off with what Uranus I believe showed through Aries… the rising Conservative movement but more importantly the military and other forces behind that.

So these were the Obama years in America, and the Conservative years in the UK. Chained to the EU with no hint of a referendum coming. UKIP was Polling high, Trump had declared his interest but was not doing anything yet.

So people were experiencing a lot of impotent anger and were in fight or flight, the fundamentals were not being focused on. That’s what I think the Mercury exposed and also, since Uranus has finally started to force the opponent, ‘The Enemy’ as the Christians call it, back, that energy is starting to come up and heal a bit.

As it goes into Taurus I’m hoping for real change to start.

My life has changed – 180 degrees. From the start of this Mercury retrograde up until the end, and the dust is finally settling now, when Mercury has moved out of it’s shadow.

So at the start I thought, what the fuck – then mid-way Merc Rx, I decided I’d go along, and let life take charge. Life did, and things changed dramatically for me. And now I look back and feel, this was perhaps the BEST thing. Ever.

I’ll write about this soon.

Lesson: Have faith in the universe.

I agree

I’m honestly out of my element on this subject and wish I could provide a better response! I’ll need some time to think on it.  Thanks for sharing!

It was pretty intense, had a “break up” if thats what you want to call it.

But oddly enough the day we finally come out of shadow from all this energy I hear from a couple people from my past which is interesting!

Now I wonder if they may have mercury rx in natal chart hmmm
