Mercury Retrograde by Felissa Rose

UnknownRenowned astrologer Felissa Rose shares her knowledge about the current Mercury retrograde:  


Beginning in December and ending in May there are three important planetary retrogrades.  I took the liberty of naming it Retrograde Winter although one continues well into spring.  The first was Venus retrograde from December 21, 2013 to January 31, 2014  discussed in the previous report., the second Mercury and the third is Mars from March 1 thru May 19.

Mercury goes retrograde on February 6, 2014 at 4:44 pm EST 3 degrees  15 minutes of Pisces.   On February 28 at 9:01 am EST it turns direct at 18 degrees 10 minutes of Aquarius.

Mercury rules  our thinking, the way we acquire and process thoughts and information. When planets are retrograde their energy is internalized.  Inner feelings about things tend to override external expression.  We turn from talkers to listeners.    Reading, writing and less speaking are in tune with a Mercury retrograde period.

Mercury rules tubes, wires, circuits, and along with Mars moving parts.  Unless forced to,  try and delay purchasing technological products while Mercury is retrograde. For example,  one fellow I know bought a  watch when Mercury was retrograde. It never worked properly, always stopped and then unexpectedly started and he was always late.

Mercury rules information and unless they're emergencies, put off medical exams, tests and procedures during this periods.  The diagnosis is more likely  be incorrect or incomplete and good chance you would have to be retested.

While Mercury is retrograde, reexamine, reassess, reflect, do your research. hand in your papers, reports and give your talks after the retrograde is over. It's a great time to explore the inner you through meditation, contemplation or just being one with nature.

During 2014 Mercury will again be retrograde from June 7 to July 1 and  October 4 thru October 25.
