So, If you haven’t heard, Mercury Retrograde lasts from November 25th to December 14th this year. At first glance, I thought it might be some poison that is at it’s highest level during the year. I was obviously mistaken. All the planets go through a retrograde period during the year at some point or another, and Mercury is no exception. However, strange things happen to people during the times when Mercury goes retrograde. If you were to look at the planets on a night during Mercury’s turn, it appears that it’s going backwards. Whether or not people believe that the stars and planets actually affect people’s minds is their own opinion. When I first read an article about it before thanksgiving (before the retrograde started) I didn’t think anything of it. The article goes on to say that Mercury is associated with clear thinking, communication, truth, and travel. During Mercury’s period of retrograde, people seem to start going mad. People will find themselves having pointless arguments over nothing at all. People also have trouble finishing sentences, or completing thoughts, they feel angry, sad, lonely, or a number of other feelings that they really have no reason to feel. It seems to happen out of no where.
Today is December 8th, 2011. and for the first time, I think I’m experiencing Mercury Retrograde. I’m feeling certain things that I shouldn’t be feeling. It’s to a point that I’ll snap out of it for two seconds, and know that I’m acting crazy, over emotional, and not thinking soundly. That’s not me. Now let me clarify. I’m a girl. I can get over emotional, and act stupid/crazy over small situations. Anyone can, but I don’t act like that if I can’t find a logical reason for me to be feeling that way. I severely dislike negative people, and when I say “negative” I mean the people who always seem to find something to complain about and ruin everyone else’s mood because of it. but hey, that’s also another symptom of the retrograde. People start to complain about absolutely everything because they’re not thinking clearly, or logically.
On a more positive note, Mercury Retrograde can also provide us with a number of potentially beautiful situations. Mercury wants us to take a step back and look at things more 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.
Whether or not I believe in astrology, the last couple weeks have been beautiful, ugly, mortifying, depressing, happy, and a number of other things. I had no point in writing this, except to maybe straighten out my head when I’m feeling down.
