Mercury Retrograde in Spring 2017 - Feeling the Heat of a Situation.

Mercury Retrograde in Spring 2017 - Feeling the heat of a situation.

Mercury is stationing retrograde in 4 days time on 10th April at 00.14 hrs in London, it'll be the evening of 9th April if you are in the Caribbean or in the Americas. Mercury this time stops at 4.51 degrees Taurus and it will go into retrograde motion until 3rd of May where it stations direct at 24.17 degrees Aries.

This Mercury retrograde stations exactly to the second on the the fixed star Fornacis, the main star in Fornax, the constellation of the furnace. This part of the sky is concerned with fire and heat and it would not surprise me in the slightest if the matter of a fire, burning or something catching alight makes the news as Mercury stops retrograde. This signature of things catching alight may affect this Mercury Retrograde, maybe burning bridges between people or a relationship that catches fire. Fire is started by a spark, and a spark of an idea or a situation that lights up in a good and/or in a bad way may occur during this 3 week period. As I said before in the introduction, you may feel the heat in a specific situation in your life.

So is Mercury retrograde all bad? No, definitely not. It is said that those with Mercury retrograde natally in their charts tend to do better and make wiser decisions during a Mercury retrograde period. As yet I haven't seen any direct proof in my own work to back this up. I think that as Mercury is moving at a slower in speed than during most of it's direct motion period, we are able to review and reassess parts of our lives in clearer focus, making sure that the things we are doing is correct. I believe that we naturally sense that things are not entirely right, and so we go back to check to make sure. Have you ever had this sense when Mercury is reversing?

This actually something I stress anyone should do under Mercury retrograde, double check everything!! This is a time when you can successfully review your own decisions, look into your own attitudes and analyse if you are doings things right or wrong. It is perfectly acceptable and probably a good idea to make your mind up during Mercury retrograde, however it's best not to sign on the dotted line confirming your plans and decisions until Mercury is moving direct. By the same token it is generally accepted that one should desist from starting any new projects, making drastic changes at work, getting any new technology (phones, computers) or items ruled by Mercury (like cars), sending important documents, booking travel tickets or making important plans.

If you know your Rising Signs or your Ascendant, these following issues will be ones that you will be reviewing or taking greater notice of in the next 3 weeks.
