Revelations to birth a Revolution

The car won't start, it's falling apart, I was late for work and the boss got smart, my pantyline shows, got a run in my hose, My hair went flat, man, I hate that (Hate that)

… the words of Shania Twain could not describe Mercury in Retrograde any better, except to add the bit where your relationships unresolved issues hit you like a tonne of bricks and your ex pops up out of nowhere, but yes … by all means … welcome to Mercury in Retrograde.





On Monday, 27th of September Mercury Stations retrograde for the fourth time this year. After slowing down and entering ‘the shadow period’ on the 6th of September in the sign of Virgo our solar systems fastest moving planet will appear to be moving backwards (an illusion formed by our perspective here on earth) through Libra until it returns directs three weeks later, on the 18th of October 2021 to then finish up its (second) ‘shadow period’ on the 3rd of November. In lamens terms, we are in the middle of a tornado and it will be clear to inspect the debris in early November. As with all mercury retrogrades, it is no time to be committing to a new lover nor a new loan, flashing the latest creation nor the latest phone, it is however the is the time for introspection and reinvention, a time of reflection and reconnection and a time to move slower and breathe deeper, a time for self.


Mercury is the ruler of both Gemini and Virgo, governing all things communication, from schooling to lower forms of education, neighbours to siblings, short distance travel to technological communication, basically anything that requires the ability to gathering information or utilise physical dexterity (the hands). In the sign of people and creating balance and while transiting the house of personal relationships and business partnerships, mercury compliments and connects with the social, communicative, and whimsical energy of Libra, creating fairness and offering harmony.


However, and this is a big however… There is what known as a T Square occurring in the ecliptic bring about tension and disruption between Pluto (the planet of transformation) in the heavy handed sign of Capricorn squaring off to Mercury in Libra communicating its harmony ideals far and wide and Eris in Aries which is found leading the charge, breaking the glass ceiling, and passionately pioneering new paths forward.

So, what does this mean for us mere mortals, well, in essence this Mercury Retrograde is offering us the introspection to unearth our core beliefs and ideals, examine how they connect with what is being broadcasted and hypothesise our own interpretations without all of the noise.


If you are heavily influenced by Gemini or Libran energy, whether that be third and seventh house activations or Venusian and Mercurial assets, this Mercury Retrograde is destined to dig up old soil to unearth truths or perspectives that were not visible before.


With love and endless blessings from our family to yours
