Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

CRYSTAL GRID

I decided to make a crystal grid for this approaching Mercury Retrograde start at 29 degrees of Virgo, which will be happening on August 31st.  I got a piece of Heulandite (which is mixed with Apophyllite in this specimen).

Mercury in Virgo

“Mercury rules the house of Virgo. Hence its effect would be more significant than when in the other signs. Being a mutable sign, Virgos are particularly found to be at loggerheads with the other mutable signs like Gemini, Sagittarius and Pisces during this time. People seem to be going through a more introspective period. It would be a dramatic period with emotions and impulses holding the sway. Generally stressful period for the natives of this sign.”

Remember that Mercury Retrograde gets a very bad rap, so use the time in a positive manner by doing all the things that start with “re” 

~ relax, refresh, revisit, revise, revision, rehash, rethink.

Look up the House that Mercury is going to Retrograde

my chart: Mercury will retrograde within my 9th house

My Example

“Mercury Stationary Retrograde in 9th House Sometimes painting life with a broad brush can cause you to miss messy details that then slow you down. The next three weeks are a great time to pause and make sure the rug rats and ankle biters are not in a position to sidetrack your whole operation because you ignored them. It’s time to give the small things their due so they can serve your larger purpose. By doing so, you may discover a better version of your own vision as well. Don’t hurry, you’ve got time, and you may find that in the end tapping resources you had ignored will trigger a rising tide that floats all boats, not just your own.
Mercury Stationary Direct in 9th House After a few weeks of uncertainty about the big picture, your panorama on life returns somewhat amended. False starts have led to a focus on correcting details that have distracted from the overall plan, but these are being put behind you so you can return to your former path with a steadier hand on the helm. What you are putting together now will shortly have a direct effect on what people will be saying about you and your career plans, so don’t toss off your ideas lightly. You will have the opportunity to impact your surroundings more than you think if you choose to, but you must make the choice.”

“Mercury transiting retrograde in the 9th house Re-examine what you believe about the world as Mercury backs up in the 9th house. Your beliefs create what you experience. It’s time to consider the future. What you do now effects the outcome. What’s your overall philosophy to life? Are you really living it? This house is also connected to morals and ethics. During this transit you may be called upon to re-assess what the truth really means. This is a good time to re-sit exams previously failed or to go back into education. Use this time to revise, to edit writing, to re-write and proof read your work. Explore books that make you think differently about the world. You may have a sense that you have lost the big picture somewhere along the line. Take some time to re-visualise where you want to be. You may find yourself needing to revisit a place. Generally however, travel plans at this time need to be triple checked. Be prepared for delays, cancelled flights and roadblocks. Mercury would like you to see where you are so you can be clearer about where you want to go. Sometimes we just have to stand still. The 9th house is also associated with the concept of faith. Your faith in yourself or in a higher being may be called into question. Faith adhered to without question can bind you. Keep asking the big questions! Keywords – revisit, re-examine, retrain”

Look up yours here!
“Mercury Retrograde in the 9th house: This retrograde can affect your travel. Travel on the retrograde is actually okay just don’t expect your luggage to make the trip with you. This time there is a need to pay attention to school if you are involved in tests, scholarships or writing papers. Make copies of everything before submitting. This is also a time to put some attention to legal matters that may be pending. Life may seem a bit overwhelming but try to take it one step at a time. It is important during this time that you take some quiet time and list things that are undone so nothing comes a great shock.”

    Looks like mine will be in the 5th house:
    Mercury Stationary Retrograde in 5th House Playful creativity can be a hallmark of the next three weeks, but only if you are willing to let it take its course wherever it leads. Don’t expect to follow a straight track but go where things lead you until you start to establish a pattern. Only then can you get back to the main highway after an enlightening detour onto the scenic route. Don’t be surprised if this muddies previously held opinions toward the end, as the new alternatives you will be finding will more than make up for any inconveniences or confusions experienced along the way.

    This feels right to me, like modus operandus. 😉
