I've always loved the word retrogade. I like how it rolls off of my tongue. Of course, that's not telling of the root of the word, which I believe is commonly used to describe that time of the year when the planets, but most popularly, Mercury revolve in a certain way -- and it affects signs ruled by this planet. According to my teacher, it is not advisable to start anything during a retrogade, nor sign any contracts. According to a useful post by one of my favorite bloggers, Gala Darling:
Expect to hear super-loud complaining from your friends who are Gemini or Virgo, since both are ruled by Mercury! Mercury also rules a lot of industries like publishing, writing, editing, advertising, sales, public relations & anything to do with transport, like airlines, the post office & cabs! This means it can be particularly rough for Gemini train conductors & Virgo magazine editors, so be kind to any you know!
I often find that Mercury retrograde makes me want to go into hermit mode. I feel like half my brain is missing so I’m really not that interested in interacting with anyone, plus every conversation seems to go in an unusual, confusing direction. I feel much more irritable & frustrated & things just don’t seem to go how I want them to.
So that’s the bad news. Mercury retrograde can be a total kick in the teeth for those of us who normally pride ourselves on having our karmic shit together! The GOOD news is that Mercury retrograde provides us with lots of beautiful opportunities if we can just tilt our head & squint.
Mercury retrograde wants us to move back spiritually. It is providing us with a chance to re-examine various areas of our life which may need a little more work, so that we can move forward to a bright new dawn. Now, more than ever, the time is right to look at things with clear eyes. Delicious, fresh perspectives are revealed. We often have major breakthroughs — intellectual, emotional or spiritual — during this time. For more details on how to cope up with mercury retrogade, read here.
I don't know why that word resonates with me. Maybe because I am there. I am in retrogade. Whatever that means.
Sundays. That feeling wherein you're beginning to get the hang of the weekend and bursting with excitement over Mondays at the same time. Then again, I think I'm the only one who gets excited over Mondays.
