Mercury Retrograde

7 days after it ends to fully clear

~* M E R C U R Y – R E T R O G R A D E ~*

Mercury is retrograde for the third (but not final) time this year.

This one begins in Libra on September 9th and ends in Virgo on October 2nd in Virgo.

This period of time has a special power to invite deeper reflection upon the past and purge your subconscious of negative mental conditioning.

The world has been driven mad by the myth of progress, so use this time to embrace the power of human spirit which expands in all directions of time.

Despite what you’re conditioned to believe by our progress and success obsessed society, the best path in life is not always onward, upward or even forward.

The reason why 21st Century people freak out about Mercury retrogrades is because they are times of introspection.

You’re meant to ruminate on the past, process what you’ve learned thus far, and heal your subconscious mind of anything that’s been corrupting your perceptions.

Put simply, think of how textbooks always have a chapter full of information followed by a review. The end-of-chapter review is what the Mercury Retrograde is like. And review is where all the deep learning and integration actually happens.

Mercury weaves internal imagination with external perception, synthesizing two qualities of experience to empower knowledge and learning.

In mythology, Mercury was said to conduct or guide the souls of the dead into the underworld.

Because he was the only god able to freely travel between the overworld and the underworld, he was tasked with being the messenger between worlds.

The underworld symbolizes the subconscious mind of primal imagination.

When Mercury is in retrograde, he descends into the underworld.

This means that during Mercury Retrogrades, your mind is getting closer to your soul— that your conscious awareness is more in touch with your subconscious.

Mercury retrogrades seem to have a disorienting effect because a wide stream of your conscious energy becomes submerged in the murky realms of the subconscious.

As the light in the mundane world dims, the imagination lights up, luring you to wander deep within.

Time to get back in touch with your soul and integrate what you’ve learned.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
