Three times Mercury paddled the seas of 16 to 29 degrees of Pisces from late February until mid April. (Direct on March 29th)
After the stirrings of creative fire marked an about-face at 4 Leo, three times Mercury side-walked the shoreline degrees of 23 to 29 Cancer from late June to mid August. (Direct on August 1st)
Now, three times Mercury will slide and sink into the deep and contained degrees of 11 to 27 Scorpio from mid October until the first week in December. (Direct on November 21st)
Consider the time frames. Any theme or issue pop its head up in both of the previous retrogrades? Are there connections easily made if you think about it? If you haven’t dealt with the matter/s sufficiently, it’s coming back around to give you one more opportunity.
If you have natal points in play, you are going to recognize what’s happening pretty quickly. If you have dealt with it, be on the lookout for the proof! It’s quite satisfying to register what could pass without your noticing and that would be a shame.
That’s the beauty of Mercury retrograde cycles: they come in threes by element and offer the spacetime to deal with a particular kink in your life circuitry. Your wheel is the map by which you can isolate, classify, clarify and administer the fix. If that sounds rather Virgoan, it’s because Mercury is exalted in these matters.
What’s more, the current Mercury retrograde re-pings the Jupiter/Pluto dance of 2018. For some, this will provide an extremely meaningful progress report on this long-term cycle.
Once you’ve observed the threes-by-element cycle, impending retrograde dates become intriguing and less of an irritant. Being the occasional collateral damage of Merc rx is a lot more tolerable. Perception shifts.
The next time Mercury goes retrograde will be in February 2020 in fixed-air Aquarius…
