Mercury will go retrograde at 4 Pisces on Feb 6, 1:43 pm PST, 9:43 pm Greenwich. It will retrograde back to 19 Aquarius, where it will go stationary direct on February 28 at 6 am PST, 2 pm Greenwich. Mercury just crossed 19 Aquarius and will slow down rapidly over the next two weeks.
Of course I’ll write more about the coming Mercury retrograde in the near future. For now, pay attention to the signs, signals, and ideas you get, since Mercury can show you what will be coming down the road. Since it’s still in Aquarius, put all the pieces together, get a bigger picture, and begin to get everything lined up and ready for the slowdown that’s coming soon.
This part of Aquarius deals with managing energy on the emotional, social, and individual-mental levels. We are told by the Sabian Symbols that Aquarius culminates in a “graduation into a new realm of being,” where a transfiguration process goes on that enables us to experience that we are Beings of Light in a larger field of Light Waves. Those who strive could find themselves moving in entirely different circles of interaction and ideas, though much will not be clear until the coming Vernal Equinox on March 20, 9:57 am PDT, 4:57 pm Greenwich.
For now, be clear and practical, but not narrow or pessimistic. Be visionary, but keep it simple and in line with your heart. Themes this week deal with being resolute as we tame and train our vital energies or see our true worth. And of course, as Mercury makes its first trine to Mars, take note of the multiple mental or idea streams going on, see what instincts are striving to assert themselves, and don’t get into useless mental struggles.
Those with planets between 19-28 Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius will find the coming days to be an extremely productive time. This will pick back up in mid-February and continue through mid-March. The favorable linkage of Air signs through then should bring good ideas, good relationships, good perspectives, and some degree of synthesis of disparate energies.
To close for today, we’re just been through a week with Jupiter on the star Sirius, the “Sun of our Sun” and the source of all Ageless Wisdom Traditions on Earth. As Mercury went stationary direct on this degree last July, you can find out more about this degree by referencing Mercury Stationary Direct Affecting July, August, September and October 2013 Finding Timeless Truths, Fearlessness, and Our Spiritual Source
Please reflect on what impressions you’ve received this past week, since it will help you navigate the Great Fracturing of late April, when Jupiter will again be at 14 Cancer. Slowly but surely we’re being led to timeless truths and a fearlessness in the face of Eternity.
