Mercury Retrograde in Virgo: Aug. 20 - Sept. 12
A Special 12-Sign Audio Edition of Planet Waves by Eric Francis
Dear Fellow Traveler:
Mercury is about to be retrograde, beginning Friday. This is one of those events we all agree has an effect. Some people love it; it gets their creative energy jumping. Other people lose their keys six times, get their cell phone cut off, have their Yahoo account hacked and bounce the mortgage payment. Occasionally it can lead to significant problems -- and just as often, truly helpful solutions and shifts of awareness. I've often noticed Mercury retrograde as the moment where the truth reveals itself, or (in a Chiron-like way) we discover the flaw in a system just in time.
In a special audio edition of Planet Waves, I'm taking a closer look at the Mercury retrograde experience and exploring both why it's so potent and how we can use it to improve our lives. For the next few weeks, Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo, one of the signs with which it's the most closely associated.
My take on this particular retrograde is that it's reminding us about unfinished healing projects. What are those projects? What has changed since we forgot about them? Where would be a good place to resume where we left off, and what can we safely move on from? I'll be looking for ways to help you consolidate your efforts, as well as to focus on specific issues and ideas that will assist like leverage points.
Another angle of this retrograde involves our typical state of mental overload. We wouldn't get into that, you know, scattered, stretched-thin state of mind, if we didn't have certain predispositions, and often these are oriented in the past -- as mental patterns. Mercury trekking backwards through Virgo will help us clue into the nature of those patterns and give us some hints about what to do with them. Where any of us has Virgo placed in our charts is an aspect of life where we need to be less self-critical, more self-supportive and relax our perfectionism. I would count those as healing goals, and I'll be reading the charts from that angle as well.
