Mercury Stations Retrograde

“Revelation: a window on the journey of the soul.” F Aster Barnwell
Mercury will station retrograde on January 5 at 1 degree of Aquarius. Mercury is moving up to a square with Mars now and will be exact on the day of the station – with Mars at 1 degree of Scorpio.
With the Mercury Mars square is in effect now it is  a good time for the next week or so –  to think things through before speaking or taking action. Avoid impulsive behavior as things can escalate into a dispute more easily and quickly.
The Mercury retrograde period will last through January 26 when it will station direct at 14 degrees of Capricorn.
The Sabian symbol for the Mercury station on the 5th is, ” An expected thunderstorm.” With the Uranus/Pluto square still very much in effect, it has been and continues to be a time when breakthroughs and revelations are likely if you are open. The revolutionary changes occurring in the outer world are present in out inner lives as well. The Sabian symbol for the degree of Mars at the time of the retrograde station is, “A broken bottle and spilled perfume.” It is a good time to sort through dreams gone awry and see if it is a good idea to give them a new form.
In general Mercury retrogrades provide a good time of respite to revisit, review and rethink. Mercury rules communications and it is not surprising during these time frames if there are snafus with communications and the tools of communication so do double check before assuming if something seems awry. It bodes well to have extra patience when traveling as delays can occur.
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
