We’ve still got five days to go until Merc turns around, but we may be feeling an immense amount of end-of-retro pressure as he slows to a crawl after weeks of mental trickery (first changing direction in Aquarius, making us think we can still handle things intellectually, then entering Cap and making the world a tough place to get our minds around). Today our thoughts show a certain strength and natural resilience, we are keen to assert ourselves within our territory, and yet hidden issues, things we’ve ignored or are in denial about, or our own rage or unreliability may undermine attempts to make an impact. Note what comes up, especially in the areas of new ideas or suddenly revealed remedies for difficult situations, but don’t allow the internal mental pressures to cause you to act prematurely. Those impulses and ideas will be valuable later–right now effort must go to staying calm, and realizing there’s more to the story, yet to be revealed, so that making up the mind definitively at this point would end up shortchanging us significantly (Merc sq Black Moon Lilith and Uranus, and nov Ceres, Sun enters Aquarius)

I’m surprised at how much I’ve accomplished during this retrograde phase! It hasn’t felt as difficult as previous Merc Rx. My progressed Moon is currently in Capricorn and I feel a bit more emotionally centered, that’s for sure.
Thank you for these posts!
You’re welcome, Nicole! I know what you mean about feeling a lot has been accomplished this retro period–I think in part that’s what may be so difficult about the 20th–we may be primed to ‘Go’ but it’s just better to ‘Stay’–for now 🙂 Thanks for coming by!
Personally, this has been the most (almost unbearably) profound Mercury retrograde I’ve ever experienced. And somehow, through the seemingly endless waves of meaning beating against my being, life is made simple again.

culmination point for all of 2015 i heard. 2015 ‘internal’ and 2016 will be ‘external’ in effect (perhaps mercury in earth signs effect) it has been quite something with new moon conjunct p;uto as jupiter retrogrades conjunct north node among 3 or 4 other very major energies going on (uranus sq pluto, venus conjunct saturn, mars new in scorpio) I dont think i’ve ever seen anything like it (about the 5th time I said that over last few years) much accomplished indeed….
