Mercury Stations Retrograde Today

“Perception is an ongoing interchange – a silent conversation I carry on with things. By perceiving (really seeing) I enter into a sympathetic relation with the perceived. The act of perception is always open-ended and unfinished.” David Abram

“When you think thoughts you do not own them.They do not stay liked tamed animals in a cage. They are not collected like rocks. They are more like butterflies.” Jane Roberts


Mercury stations retrograde May 29 in the evening EDT at 24 degrees of Gemini. Mercury, the busy Trickster God is happy in this mutable, mercurial sign.

Mercury will travel retrograde until June 23 when he stations direct-  making this  three week period an excellent time to pause, rethink and revision. Mercury is a lover of multifaceted ideas and perspectives. It’s wise to be open to options in thinking and  ideas that might need an update.

Mercury and Venus are together now and making an alignment to Neptune – a reminder of the power and wisdom of kindness, compassion and forgiveness in effecting change.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Carefree children skating on ice.”

Sabian symbol from Linda Hill
