Mercury Retrograde in Gemini: Returning Arrow

Mercury is currently retrograde in Gemini's Galaxy of the Returning Arrow.
Mercury will go direct on Saturday 20 July: Time for Peach Champagne.

Marker Stars: Castor and Pollux: 20 Gemini to 3 Cancer 20' (sidereal)

Rulers: Jupiter (expanding, abundance, bringer of luck); Mercury (thinking, communication, education and music); Aditi (unlimited life) and Abudantia (abundance).
Symbols: Twins, Cupid, Lovers, Swans, cats, bows and arrows, the returning arrow.

The energy radiated by Castor and Pollux is of things returning or recycling, because that is the way we evolve and grow. The energy is specifically about repeating things especially concerning prosperity and brilliance. Being great or good again.  The magical weapon that returns after completing its mission. In order to perfect something, we have to do it over and over again.


Energy Vibration: Repeating prosperity, abundance and brilliance. Healing. The Return of the Light. Death and Rebirth. This beautiful and uplifting Galactic Mansion highlights communication and making life changes. Rewrite your life story. Start telling a different and more uplifting story about your life, your past and your childhood. The result will bring about a dramatic and instant change for the better in your life. Use today's energy to playfully examine your own thought and verbal patterns. Don't over intellectualize details. This energy is all about the r's in your life: refresh, restore, revitalise, replenish, re-do, recur, review, reappear, release, relief, renew, restore, reconcile, reunion, return, retrieve, recover, reinvent yourself. It is an excellent time for any kind of medical treatment as it is governed by the 'Healing Physicians of the Gods'. This energy is also good for the following: Approaching your boss, widening your social circle, increase trade and money; buying; travel; turning an enemy into a friend.

Bright side of the Gemini: Good for medical treatments and healing; for moving and changing; travelling and exploring; for getting rid of the old and the ugly; getting rid of bugs. Lighting up the room with your presence. Good for dealings with money, men, doctors and lovers. Good for reunions such as the mother-and-child reunion or to reunite with a departed lover. Good for healing yourself and your relationships. Good for "starting over again" in projects, relationships etc as well as for starting building work. Good for gardening and agriculture and activities requiring imagination & innovation;  good for buying cars & homes. Auspicious for marriage and dealing with children and education.Good for giving donations. Good for Spiritual activities, meditating, self-reflection, praying, fasting and making altars. A time for enjoying life's simple pleasures. Very good for worship of the divine Mother Goddess. T

Dark side of Gemini: may have trouble concentrating. Travelling may cause stress. Not good for borrowing /lending money; legal activities or other activities requiring pushiness or conflict.

Step into Magic: Because Mercury is in the mansion of the returning arrow, we have to re-visit the past in some way or re-address past issues. Dealings with people from your past. In order to be successful, you may need to rethink something. Communication and education may be slowed down or hampered in some way. There could be problems with computers, cellular phones, faxes and most forms of communication. Think before you speak. May have trouble concentrating. Travelling may cause stress. Not good for borrowing /lending money; legal activities or other activities requiring pushiness or conflict. However this is an excellent time for crossing over and communicating with the other side. This is also a good time to communicate with animals, spirits, departed loved ones and angels. You may find that pleasure accompanies pain. Help animals in need for extra blessings. We are reminded of the never ending cycle of birth, death and rebirth. There is no such a thing as death, but rather transformation, resurrection, ascension, reincarnation. What has been will be again. Energy can never be lost, it is just transformed. Be careful of liars and swindlers and of impulsive actions. This placement is strongly linked to the numbers: 7 (psychic awareness), 8 (eternity) and 13 (transformation).

Magic Word: Kindness ! (especially to animals in this galactic mansion). Improve your luck now, be kind to and feed animals.

The younger, weaker sister, Procyon, was unable to cross and has remained weeping on the northern bank, defeated by the strength of the river. Sirius is referred to as "She who has passed through". Procyon is referred to as "She who weeps", - pertaining to drowning and floods.

                                                  Lunar Zodiac: Earth is surrounded by the Zodiac band of 360 degrees.  The zodiac band is usually divided into 27 sections (mansions or constellations) of 13.2 degrees.  Whenever a planet moves through these mansions they radiate the energy of the particular mansion they are visiting.  These energy vibrations influence us on a subconscious level.  The Moon completes its wobbly trajectory around the earth in 27.32 days (a sidereal month).  The Moon is the closest planet (satellite) to earth and exerts the most energy on us (evident in the tides of the ocean).  Each individual will experience the daily energy in a different way as we are all unique.  For example if the energy involves travelling, one person might travel to another country while another may just travel a bit more than usual.  Pathological behaviour has been attributed to the moon, thus the term luna-tic.  Instead of reacting to this energy, it can be harnessed to benefit us in a positive way.  Take note of how the moon affects your energy and manifestations, and use it to your advantage.  Each of these 27 (2 + 7 = 9) mansion are divided into 4 quadrants. 27 x 4 gives 108 prayer beads. 108 Holy Names, 108 prayers, 108 repititions. 108 = 1 + 8 = 9 the powerful and magic number. Add any multiple of 9 and you will still get 9.  As we are busy moving into another galaxy, the number of mansion will now be 28 and the total number will now be 10.
