The quicksilver planet Mercury, is the God of communication. It is depicted as a man with wings on his head and feet. Fast and multitasking, it rules Gemini and Virgo as well as 3rd house of communication and 6th house of health in astrology. When I learned Reflexology, Reiki and Shamanic healing, i dealt with this Mercurial force.
This Planet affects our mind and nervous system as well as the spine. It is core essential to regulating our bodies.
When this planet goes retrograde, it appears to go backwards but it slows down and we catch up with it. It is a time for us to slow down and review our past. What needs tweeking and refinement in our life? Our mind needs clearing and the body needs cleansing. Useing herbals to detox at this time is oh so benificial. eat more greens and juice when you can.
In March 2019 Mercury is retrograde March5th untill March 28th. As I write this the Moon heading to Full tonight at 9:46 pm ET, is still in Virgo. I find it healing and good for writing as well as organizing things. During the retrograde, communications are interupted, computures glitch! }ook Face Book went down the othere day during this time! Machines and cars break down. Ther are misunderstandings. You can feel at time, like you are talking in the wind and no one hears you.
Pisces in Neptune from the 18th untill the 27th creates a brain fog. That too shall clear after the 28th. So with the set backs and delays, take the time to journal, do breath work, meditate and reflect. Spring is here today March 20th 2019. Happy Spring!
