Mercury Rx in Virgo

Dale Osadchuk

Mercury is retrograde in Virgo- Aug 30- 9.04 am EDT to Sept 22- 1.31 am EDT-Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini (logic verses intuition) and Virgo (evaluation and realignment) so his retrograde in Virgo is significant. He is the planet that influences our thoughts and perceptions as well as how we communicate. He also influences travel by automobile and when he first goes retrograde there is always an increase in traffic accidents mostly because people driving are not paying attention and are often on “automatic pilot”. So when driving stay alert and aware. 

Mercury Rx also creates blocks and delays so be patient as you maneuver through any obstacles in your path. It is recommended to not start anything new during a Mercury Rx period. But you can continue to work on projects begun before the retrograde. Do pay attention to fine details so you have all the information you need to make appropriate decisions.

Mercury Rx is review and revision time. People have been asking how this retrograde will influence them. Of course it depends individually on where the planet of the mind is activating your chart. But generally this Mercury retrograde is about analyzing, adjustment, evaluation, and redefining what is important. It is also about healing at a deep level. Brown Bear, introspection, healing, and The Healer, is our guide. We cannot put our busy lives on hold during a Mercury retrograde but it is important to take time to sit in silence and just experience PRESENCE during this time-frame.

The areas of life Virgo influences are daily routine, work, and health. Again it is important to be alert and aware. Spiritually Virgo supports us to be of service. So during this retrograde contemplate what you can do to make the world a better place for all. It does not have to be grand. Simple acts of kindness make a big difference.

Mercury entered his retrograde shadow Aug 10 and will be in it until Oct 06. I have been noticing how ungrounded I feel and cannot seem to make anything happen. But now that he is on the edge of the actual retrograde I am okay. Maybe that is because my natal Mercury is retrograde so it feels like home. Virgo is a teacher about being in the NOW so whatever you are experiencing during this time frame just try to let go and flow.

Mercury is at 29 degrees Virgo as he retrogrades and will travel back to 14 degrees Virgo and then move direct. He leaves Virgo on Oct 07 and will be clear of his shadow. If you have planets in mutable signs in those degrees you are receiving the Mercury Rx influence directly. But all zodiac signs will be affected so just remember to be in “The Now” whatever you are experiencing.  As we have said many times Virgo is the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness.

I forgot to mention in our post for the Venus in Libra journey her Animal Totem guides. They are Crow, sacred law and fairness for all, and Raven, the magic of the mysteries. Let this Mercury retrograde show you the sacred mystery of who you really are. We have a Virgo New Moon Solar eclipse happening on Sept 01. Mercury plays an important part at that planetary dance. That Lunation will influence us until Feb 2017. We will of course share more about that New Moon in the next few days.
