The winged messenger

Post by Quinonostante »

At 04:01 UT (Universal Time), on Friday, Oct. 12, 2007, Mercury, the cosmic trickster, turns retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of the Scorpion, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! Once again, it's one of those tricky time zone issues, as in the Americas it happens late on the 11th! This awkward period begins a few days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until November 1, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.

When Mercury is retrograde, everyone's thinking is more introspective and we tend to think about issues and concerns which relate to the sign involved. With Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, people with this sign prominent in their charts will be especially prone to such introspection. There is little choice but to reconsider our personal views and opinions about life. We receive, however, an opportunity to gain insight into our own ego.

Mercury retro in Scorpio creates a skeptical, cynical mood, with mental and emotional confusion arising through an undue fixation on secrecy and the hidden side of things. People cling to their opinions, despite the evidence and will fight (sometimes to the death!) to defend them. Mercury in Scorpio gives a shrewd and penetrating mind, keen aspiration, a quick wit and a sharp, sarcastic tongue. People are inclined to be headstrong and difficult to get along with. Knowledge and information tends to be equated with power and secrecy. Conspiracy theories raise their ugly heads. Although skepticism is rampant, the other side of this is an attraction to mysticism and the occult. An intriguing attraction may be shortlived and interest in the opposite sex may be misconstrued by others.

Mercury remains in Scorpio until October 24th, when he rolls back to Libra, creating havoc with the law, the arts and hairdressing appointments! He returns to Scorpio on November 11th, with Mars stationary about to turn retrograde in Cancer on November 15th, but read on for more on Mercury's stay in Libra.

And if you believe that, you'll believe anything!

The whole world communication industry thrown into chaos, because a not very large planet appears to be travelling backwards in space!

When will astrologers keep up with the times - even the Catholic church does not disagree with the heliocentric planetary model anymore.
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

That isn't really astrology - it is human nature - and occurs at every time of the year, under every star sign. But I will take your advice about hairdressers!
