Sadhvi Sez: Mercury is Retrograde!

SADHVI

Ok, for the last couple of days, Mercury has been retrograde.  Personally speaking, if it gets any more intense in the heavens, I might have to join the “Baptists who Believe and Want Rapture to Happen Yesterday” (BBWRHY) church down the street.  A friend recently told me about a quote he read…something about “Nothing can be done.  And, nothing matters.”  I think it was from Osho.  I like it.  And I find myself repeating it to myself throughout the day.  You might want to do the same…just find something you like and resonate with.

Here are some suggestions to get you thinking:

“Don’t Worry, be Happy.”

“Everything is OK unless you think about it.”

“Through Chaos Stars are Born”

You get the idea, right?

What does mercury retro mean to you and me?  Well, here is what my favorite astrologers at StarIQ have to say about it:

“Mercury, the planet of communication, short trips and details, appears to stop dead in its tracks on August 2 at 1 degree of Virgo. The planet then turns backwards in its apparent path through the zodiac. It stops again on August 26, then turns to resume its direct motion at 18 degrees of Leo.

Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, spending a bit more than three weeks in “reverse” gear each time. The retrograde cycle is due to the fact that we are viewing the planets from a moving platform, the Earth. The planets, in fact, do not actually change direction, but appear to do so from our perspective. This geocentric, or earth-centered, point of view is the basis for astrological measurements. In a sense, what you see is what you get.

What Does It Mean?

A retrograde planet is generally considered more introverted than when it’s in the normal direct motion mode. Astrologers have traditionally considered Mercury retrograde to be a time of difficulty in Mercury related endeavors like communication, travel and matters of detail. Some counsel the avoidance of launching new projects or signing contracts at this time. Glitches are considered more commonplace now, as are misunderstood or poorly delivered messages.

There are, fortunately, more optimistic views of what Mercury retrograde means. Rather than hunkering down in your bunker, this is a positive time to tie up loose ends, reconnect with people from the past, make mechanical repairs and get systems in order. This can also be a productive period for psychological review as new information can be gleaned from old experiences.

How Long Does It Last?

Mercury, the planet of communication, short trips and details, appears to stop dead in its tracks on August 2 at 1 degree of Virgo. The planet then turns backwards in its apparent path through the zodiac. It stops again on August 26, then turns to resume its direct motion at 18 degrees of Leo.

I hope you are enjoying what is,

About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. Hi Mary Rose,
    You are so right, we can’t do anything about the planets hanging in the sky, but we can sure enjoy life’s pleasures…the Jive Aces are very popular in the UK…and now, with us! Hope you are doing well.

  2. Hey Ronnie,
    I got that video sent to me by a friend…I thought it was great! Had to fit it into my weekly post somehow! Hey, do you have any inclination to write? I think our readers would enjoy! Let me know…I’ll send you the guidelines. Wishing you well, Sadhvi

  3. Sal, you hit the nail on the head. If we stop giving power to the political people, either by fearing what they say, or by backing them, they will disappear. I think the time is right! Let’s Dance!

  4. OK here is what we need to do – every time political speakers start to speak we need to jam the TV’s with this video and start to dance. Whenever the TV has bad news we need to jam the TV with this video and dance – ok now you get it. Yes, I do remember those dances and those back and white shoes. I am a bit older now and know any political speaker, just speaks lies to get into office. If you are rich – don’t read this, but if you are poor like us hang onto your wallet.

  5. Sadhvi,
    That video – too cool for school! How in the world did you discover it?

    I also love Jeff & Rick from StarIQ. I took an Astrology workshop with them in Mexico in 2010…..muy bueno!

  6. Sadhvi,
