Mercury Retrograde December 10 – 30, 2010

This mercury retro may be one to remember as we all visit the past in our day and dreams. The visitation of Marley’s ghosts and all of their teachings escort us via a gauntlet thru all time. The ghost of Christmas’s past comes to sup upon this opportunity as a point of profound healing on a personal and planetary cellular level. This retro touches everyone and everything no exceptions. Whatever still bangs around in your cellars and attics comes to announce, a deep healing.

Mercury retrograde is a maintenance period, perfect for revisiting everything one has forgotten to do in the last several months. The planet Mercury is associated with the god mercury/ Hermes who is the ‘god of the unexpected’ and divine coincidences. Hermes/Mercury is the creator of new and sacred spaces. Miracles come in the form of fortuitous and serendipitous events.

Mercury retrograde brings unexpected gifts. we might just get a taste of unexpected luck in an unexpected coyote medicine type of way. It asks us to be fluid in our day and remain flexible, having as many backup plans as it takes. Whenever things seem ‘stuck,’ Mercury/Hermes introduces fluid movement laced with little chunks of surprise.

Mercury retro is all about getting unstuck in thought, deed and dreams. The winged messenger sits pondering what he should be doing, what he could be doing, what he was supposed to do. Mercury retrograde is a magical time of slowing down, one step forward two steps back. It asks you to pay special attention to detail to pay special attention to what is small and minute. Look back in time but don’t lick your wounds. Time beckons you to walk through the past, picture by picture, memory by memory. Having No regrets, heal what still hurts.

In the next article I will recap the year and wish all those celebrating a Merry Christmas.

Have a wonderful, adventurous weekend.

All my love,
