Mercury Stations Retrograde on Halloween

“All we are is the result of what we have thought.” Siddhartha Gautama

“New ways of thinking about familiar things can release new energies and make all manner of things possible.” Charles Handy

Mercury is is slowing down in preparation to station retrograde on October 31 in the late morning EDT. Mercury will station at 27 degrees of Scorpio  and retrograde down to 11  degrees  on Scorpio when it stations direct on Nov 21 ending the retrograde period.

In a nutshell this retrograde period will be a good time to get to the bottom of things and/or deepen your thinking in order to create a shift in perception.

It’s a good time to check your chart and see in which house Mercury is stationing. For instance, stationing in the first house would indicate a time to rethink or renew your sense of identity, in the fourth house, issues related to roots, home, family and ancestry and in the tenth house, the way forward on your life path.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”The king of the fairies approaching his domain.”
