Mercury Retrograde is today at 6:05pm PDT and Mercury Stations Direct on election day this year!
The last time Mercury Stationed on an election day was in the 2000 election, but Mercury Stationed RX that year. If you remember, the voting punch machines in Florida were not functioning correctly, and we saw a national debacle around “hanging chads” which ensued for weeks before Al Gore conceded on Dec 13th.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens when Merc Stations Direct this time (Nov 3 at 9:50am PST). When any planet Stations Direct, the Rx energy of the previous weeks coalesces on the day it Stations as the planet slows to a stop (appears to us in the sky that way!) This means that all the Rx energy of the next few weeks will consolidate on November 3rd. Eeep!
However, we don’t have to despair! We can work with this Rx energy. Over the next few weeks, we can focus on POSITIVE work that results in a POSITIVE Merc Direct. Rx periods are not negative per se, just more challenging. It’s what we DO with this RX that has impact!
There’s a few general rules with Mercury Rx that can help instead of hinder us on the MICROCOSMIC level. What you can DO: review, reflect, and regroup. What NOT to do: extensive travel, negotiating new contracts, beginning new projects. Focus on things you’ve already started!
Obviously, the US election has macrocosmic astrology beyond Mercury Rx! I won’t go into it here, but I do also see positive aspects in the US Natal chart, along with the tension! Its definitely a mixed bag, I won’t sugarcoat it.
I asked the Lua Lenormand what we can expect from this Merc Rx period. 27.Letter + 2.Clover + 33.Key. I see the Letter as voting ballots. Clover & Key are both positive cards! I'm also wondering about any letter campaigns that have positive result during Merc Rx.
I pulled a Lua Tarot card to further clarify Merc Rx. Page of Wands! This card is ACTIVE with messages that bring new dynamic & creative energies. I see this as people taking action not seen before.
I turned the deck over for one last message from the tarot. The Hanged One says, “Surrender & Trust!”
