Back to the future...or to the past?- What is the message of the planets retrogression?

Confusion and disturbing the smooth operations ruled by Mercury are actually an excellent tool for increasing our ability to maximize insight into the details of a thing, to concern how we express ourselves, to note! something. People rarely use this ability. Our habits and the things we make automatically almost choke it. What exactly do I mean?

Every day after I get up I go to the coffee machine. While I make the coffee I do not even think of what I actually do. I do it completely without thinking. One day, however, the button fails, and there is no coffee. When this happens I already pay attention to the machine and to everything I do while I make the coffee. And I notice that the button has shifted or there is something else. In short – I wake up – and I notice the machine. While everything goes smoothly, I make it without thinking and stop noticing it. I just fall asleep concerning certain nuances and details.

This falling asleep is one of the major problems, especially in partnerships and relationships. We get used to the other so much that we finally really stop to hear and see him/her. Only something unusual could wake us up and make us see the other again. Nature is something unique! The astrological retrograde motion of planets symbolizes precisely these moments that we need to not go through life asleep, to wake up from time to time.

It is often mentioned in popular astrology that no contracts should be signed, no negotiations should be held because the quality of communication is impaired, no new equipment should be bought during retrograde Mercury. That man is more inclined to confuse meetings, to forget important things, to change his/her decisions. This is somewhat true. But everything has a meaning. There is no need to almost stop living, but to seek the meaning.

During these periods people mostly are lost in their thoughts and deeds and rarely pay attention to those of the others’. This partly accounts for most confusions and misunderstandings – “I said at 10 but he understood at 10 in the evening.”

Something important gives us kick in the knuckles to realize it, to see it. This is the time to wake up about things that have given any sign of irregularity, but you have not noticed it. Mistakes are common. But they come to make you see something you have not noticed and try some alternative ways that seem illogical and not typical to you, to look at it from another angle, from another perspective.

You make some minor mistakes at work and this time you are seriously censured. You can not explain to your boss, he just does not understand you. No, your boss is not a nagging idiot. You have missed those small signs that show he gets discontented of the way you perform your duties. And a small mistake appears serious. It is time to understand this eventually.

You forget about important meeting. Maybe you just do not want to meet this person or do not want to participate in the things that will be discussed at this meeting?!

You can not make a decision, you hesitate between several options - do you really want to make this decision?

If you have communication problems – ie, the others interpret you wrong – look for no fault in them. Think about how you present your thoughts and how you take theirs. Maybe you just do not hear them. Stay as fair as possible about what is happening around you and the other people. Nobody is to blame for dealing with their personal things, just like you. Even if it causes you discomfort.

Problems with traveling, bookings, meetings confused in time, delays, etc. are often referred to these periods.

You still can go from point A to point C, but you will not go through point B but through D. Maybe you do not want to travel? Or you've always wanted to go to point D, but you have not found the occasion to do it?

It is often mentioned that during these periods of Mercury it is not recommended to buy new equipment because it will break later. I think that is too far-fetched, since I have not noticed such a connection. Rather, sometimes you have to buy (or repair) something because the old equipment should be replaced or repaired. Equipment that long has shown signs, but you have not noticed or postponed them. Provided that, of course, it affects this particular field in the horoscope.

Retrograde Mercury brings to the surface any information stored in the time. But it makes this in intuitive and illogical way - most often by mistake into something. And it affects the areas defined by the house in the horoscope in which it is staying in and the planets which it is in contact with during its retrograde period.

Of course, you should not think that you will be facing similar situations in every step. But if it happens to you just stop for a minute and think.

On the other hand, the retrograde period of Mercury is extremely beneficial for all individually involved with speech in its written forms and with different types of analysis and research. Individual work is in its best. Insights and productivity can be staggering and mistakes could prove to be “true.”

The next retrograde period of Mercury is December 10 - 30, 2010

From October 8, 2010 to November 19, 2010 is the retrograde period of Venus. I will give more details when it comes closer.

The closest retrograde period of Mars is between January 2012 and April 2012.

The next article will continue the topic that I dropped. It will be about the rulers and how the planets behave as rulers of various houses. I will write about the  retrograde planets in the birthday horoscope and what is their message in another article.
