MERCURY RETROGRADE turns DIRECT May 3rd at 9:33 am PDT/ 12:33 pm EDT/4:33 pm but it is extremely strong when Stationary, as it is now, so be extra mindful and will continue to be virtually stationary for the next week or so.
Yes there is some mental relief, the equivalent of cosmic Aspirin as Mercury changes direction.
MERCURY Direct at 24+ degrees of ARIES + URANUS + ERIS
This can be extremely mind blowing. Expect things to be chaotic for awhile. Stay flexible, make sure you have plan B and C ready.
Mercury, the trickster and God of thieves and merchants, the messenger of the gods is conjunct to weird, quirky planet URANUS, the planet of freedom, chaos and revolution and also cheek to jowl with Goddess ERIS, she who rules DISCORDIA or disturbia.
This is a total roll of the dice. Things can be very very chaotic over the next few days.
Expect your mind to be very excitable. Your thoughts may be all jumbled and akimbo. Chaos is hard to deal with but is also extremely creative. Our minds are being shaken up like those snow scenes in little glass holders.
If you are feeling trapped by outdated ideas, of mental self and world concepts that seem redundant, backward, old-hat and want to scream, this is that kind of energy applying. Free the mind from old antiquated concepts is screaming through the cosmos.
Free your mind from old antiquated concepts is screaming through the cosmos.
If you are feeling really confused and lost, here’s what I recommend you do.
CREATE RITUAL to Mercury, the element of AIR and the Gods and Goddesses of Wisdom
When I do ritual and prayer, the direction of the North in the tradition I use, or the direction of AIR in whichever system you use, symbolizes the MIND. In the tarot, swords traditionally symbolize mental concepts, ideas, and communications, birds, passenger pigeons, things that fly.
I would call upon the higher master wisdom teachers, those beings in space, the ancient ones who are eternal, the Beings from other solar systems and dimensions. The Ancestors or Keepers of wisdom traditions.
Call upon the Goddesses of WISDOM, most especially SOPHIA, or Athena, or Lilith, ISIS SERAPIS, or NEITH in EGYPTIAN, SAGA Nordic Goddess of wisdom or any Goddess who has an owl on her shoulder as owls symbolize wisdom. Call upon the Gods of wisdom, Solomon in the Jewish Tradition, LAO ZI in Chinese, APOLLO or PROMETHEUS in Greek mythology, INDRA or GANESHA in INDIAN, ODIN in Nordic Mythology.
But it will take until May 21st until Mercury sails past the 4+ degrees of TAURUS when it turned Retrograde on April 9/10th.
Just stay mindful, literally Mind Full.
