Heads up people! Mercury retrograde is coming to an end on October 9, 2015 10:57 am ET.  In the sign of Libra, we were trying to find balance and fairness in the way we communicate with one another.

Mercury is not just about communication, though, it’s also about listening and learning.  Are you interpreting what is being communicated to you in the way it was intended? Or did you jump to conclusions?

The energy of Mercury is currently making a “station”.  When planets are stationing retrograde or direct, that’s when the energy is the most intense. It’s sort of like when astronauts are leaving or re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere: the most intense time is when they are leaving or coming back.  Eventually they have to come back to Earth. They can’t stay in space forever.  However, we don’t want them to burn up on re-entry. So, remain calm during this time so you don't "burn yourself out"!

During stations retrograde or direct is when Mercury appears to be standing still.  So, this is a time when we also need to be still and quiet and “listen” to the messages from the Universe, before doing or saying anything important. 

Don’t react. Think first!

Be still and listen!
