Since my humble astrological beginnings at the tender age of 12, I have always been fascinated with the story that astrology tells about each person and about our world at large as we evolve. Currently we are under the planetary astrological influence of a Mercury Retrograde, which goes into effect on June 26th, 2013 and ends on July 20th, 2013 and with Mercury as the Messenger, The Power of Love and Relationships is in the Air!
Mercury Retrogrades bring opportunities to reconnect, revisit, recover, reconsider, release, revise, review, reveal, and renew. If you follow my lead here, if there’s a word you can think of that begins with a “re”, it arises during the retrograde. If you have an unresolved issue, it may come to an end during this period or the missing information needed to bring closure to a matter reappears.
This particular retrograde falls under the astrological sign of Cancer, highlighting a focus on relationships. During this time, both privately and publicly, relationships will be reconsidered, reviewed and in some cases restored! This is one of the positive factors of the retrograde, as this energy brings the opportunity to reconsider and review mistakes made in the past in order for them to be corrected and revised.
Publicly, we experienced this today with the Supreme Court reversing the decision of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), which now provides legally married same-sex couples the same federal benefits provided to heterosexual spouses. Prop 8 in California was also overturned, which will now allow same-sex marriages in California to resume and be recognized and opens the door to appeals for the same rights in other states.
This is only the first day of this retrograde and there will likely be many more relationship-oriented news reports to come publicly, as well as relationship-challenged interactions and growth opportunities to manifest during this time. With this being said, Mercury is not magical in that by simply being in retrograde, these changes occurred. The hard work and dedication of thousands of people who fought for this change are the ones to be celebrated for their endeavors and for this achievement. Mercury simply assists with a bit of fortuitous timing, providing an extra nudge of restorative energy during this time.
During this retrograde it’s a powerful time to review and reconsider some of the decisions made in the past and resolve to make positive changes in the future. It’s time to reflect upon what changes may enhance relationships with others, both personally and globally. Today with Mercury in Cancer spotlighting relationships, we experienced a wonderfully positive turn of events for love to be shared and fully recognized for all people! Happy Days!
