Mercury takes a turn

by Lynn Hayes

Even people who don’t believe in astrology believe in Mercury retrograde.  I usually start hearing it around the office co-op where I spend my days about a week into the retrograde period.  “Is Mercury retrograde?” people start asking me.  Email can get glitchy, computer and other equipment starts to fail, contracts take forever to negotiate.
Well folks, Mercury turned direct this morning so it’s moving in the right direction again, but it will be in the news for a little while longer.  Mercury is still within a degree or so of an opposition to Uranus, and the thoughts and ideas are coming faster than we can moderate them.  This can lead to errors and miscommunication, especially since one Mercury is past Uranus it bumps right into Saturn on October 7.  
Mercury is in Virgo right now, one of the signs it rules, so it is happy coming up with great ideas and perfecting them.  But Mercury is less happy with the kind of intense flood of data that pours forth from the opposition to Uranus.
This is a great time for writing and planning a lecture or conference, but the implementation will be easier after the 7th.

    OMG, this so perfectly describes today for me. Yikes! And since my sun is in Virgo, I’m just all confused …

    I feel as if I been living in the past and can’t let go. Its been bothering me for sometime. I feel like I revisited my past when I went to my mothers house . I feel as if I can’t go there anymore.The past is the past we all need to forget it to plan for the future. I’m a libra and my son’s dad is a leo . I read about astrology all the time my stars are never aligned with his. I feel its affecting my ability to do the best I can at work and to take care of my son. Therefore I believe this. Because all of my friends won’t talk to me. I’ve been having computer glitches all day.It’s crazy how true this stuff really is.

    I actually have a stationary Mercury – it was turning direct the day I was born – 23 degrees Virgo on my birt chart. Working in communications sector I’m a big believer in the the Mercury retrogrades, we ALWAYS get more technical problems during the retrogrades. However, they usually don’t affect me personally.
    But this one has been quite an exception. Major rearrangements at work that affect me personally too were announced a week ago (yes, Autumn equinox). Needless to say, I feel changes won’t proceed as planned and some decisions made have to be revisited.

    Is Mercury a planet that implies change when it rules?
