Mercury Retrograde Periods in 2013

Although not quite as popular as Sun sign astrology, "Mercury Retrograde" has certainly become a buzzword--or buzz phrase--these days.

What is Mercury Retrograde? Three, and sometimes four, times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of approximately 3 weeks. "Appears" is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don't even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun at a different speed than the other planets. Mercury turns retrograde more frequently than any other planet. It can never be more than 28 degrees from the Sun, and whenever it reaches its furthest distance from the Sun, it changes direction.

As the planet of communication, Mercury retrograde tends to breed a certain level of confusion. Mercury rules our "lower" mind—how we perceive and interpret information that we receive from our environment, and how we relay that information to others. Mercury has rulership over such things as speaking, negotiating, buying and selling, listening, formal contracts, documents, travel, the mail and shipping, and so forth. All of these areas of life are affected when Mercury is functioning in a sluggish state. Decision-making is challenged during Mercury retrograde. Needless to say, it is not advised to sign contracts, engage in important decision-making, or launch a new business. Delays and challenges are more probable with Mercury retrograde. This period is best used for re-organizing and reflecting.

During these periods, it's best to check and double-check your work, emails, and paperwork. Watch what you say, because it may not come out, or be received, the way you intended. Try to be understanding if you receive remarks that don't go over well. Double-check that the person who uttered those words really meant it the way you thought they did! Asking "are you sure you meant to say that?" might help. Get in touch with yourself during this period--it's an excellent cycle for discovering new ways of looking at life and at yourself. It's also an ideal cycle in which to discover new ways of communicating your ideas and thoughts.

Venus Retrograde in 2013

What is Venus Retrograde? Occasionally, Venus appears to be moving backwards in the sky. "Appears" is the key word here, because, technically speaking, no planet actually moves backwards in their orbits around the Sun. In fact, they don't even slow down. Retrograde-station-direct cycles are essentially illusions that result from our point of view from Earth, simply because the Earth is also orbiting the Sun at a different speed than the other planets. Venus is Retrograde approximately 40-43 days every 18 months.

As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are times when we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well. There may be delays or confusion in relationships and financial affairs. Read more about Venus Retrograde cycles.

Saturn Stationary Retrograde

08 Mar SATURN Sextile PLUTO 03:31 am EST Tran-Tran 11SC16'Rx
This roughly yearlong period describes a background in which previous social conflict has been resolved and the establishment and powers that be seem to be pretty much doing their jobs. While not necessarily of personal impact, this rolling along of the status quo is something you may be able to use or at least be aware of to your advantage. It means you'll get more mileage out of being a cooperator and someone who does not rock the boat. There is more headway to be made running with the tide than against it, although you may not agree with everything you have to put up with in the process. The time for major departures from the norm is not now, but will come soon enough. 23 Mar JUPITER Quincunx SATURN 10:53 pm EDT Tran-Tran 10GE36' 29 Mar JUPITER Quincunx PLUTO 09:56 pm EDT Tran-Tran 11GE32'

20 May URANUS Square PLUTO 06:01 pm EDT Tran-Tran 11Aries14'
This several-year period (most recently centering around 1933) occurs only once every 128 years and is reputed to have the effect of transforming and sometimes violent technological progress upon society at large. Too lengthy to have much more than a background effect, it nevertheless sets the tone of the period.

06 Jun Neptune SRx 11:10 pm EDT Tran-Tran 05PI22'Rx
Neptune Stationary Retrograde

11 Jun SATURN Trine Neptune 07:36 pm EDT Tran-Tran 05SC22'Rx
For about a year, the world in general seems to be in the process of merging spiritual aspirations with material possibilities. It is as if Church and State finally realized they both agree at heart. It is a period you will likely look back on with fondness and a sigh, realizing that hope does indeed spring eternal and eventually may triumph. But the meek aren't about to inherit the earth, not yet anyway, so perhaps the best way to capitalize on this general trend is to associate yourself with hope, both yours and others', and where possible let it float your boat for the duration. Inner and outer stability flourishing together can only last a time, like Camelot.

25 Jun JUPITER Enters CANCER 09:40 pm EDT Tran-Tran 00CA00'
A year of precious projects is ahead, with the general style being to put all eggs in a single basket and circle the wagons to defend it. Things can get intense trying to move forward with this approach, but trying to get people to open up their game may be a challenge. New plans will be personalized, whoever is involved, so let them be, and stroke egos where necessary.

Uranus Stationary Retrograde

17 Jul JUPITER Trine SATURN 01:33 pm EDT Tran-Tran 04CA54'
You are in a roughly yearlong period in which the world at large is, in the deepest sense of the word, coasting. There is a great faith that God is in his Heaven and all is right with the world, which is, as often as not, totally unfounded, a disillusionment often met the following year. But, for the moment, in the background all appears to be working smoothly, both economically and morally. This makes for profitable enough short-term actions, as long as you can pull out quickly. The real personal bonanza may be had by searching out the coming shift that changes everything and putting all your financial and moral assets on it.

17 Jul JUPITER Trine NEPTUNE 08:15 pm EDT Tran-Tran 04CA57'
If what you believe is what you are, then everyone is feeling very self-aware right now, and rather relaxed about it. There is a general feeling, in the background, that dreams and expectations are quite realizable (if not, indeed, already realized) and that none of it requires much tending, as what will be, will be; I'm OK, you're OK; win-win; let it be. That can be particularly annoying if it isn't applying specifically to you right now, but understand it as a background illusion that can be used if you're clever, and otherwise taken with a grain of salt. The best of times change with time itself and all illusions sooner than expected devolve into the next scene....

07 Aug JUPITER Opposition PLUTO 07:29 pm EDT Tran-Tran 09CA26'
Sometimes the most perfect, wonderful, ideal schemes go racing along and suddenly hit a brick wall. Watch out for that about now. The possibilities of not-quite-irresistible-enough forces encountering truly immovable objects are rife. So, if a big "no!" suddenly stops you (or a situation you are involved in) in your tracks, it's probably not the right time to stand and argue and beat on the wall. The best policy is to back off, no blame, and move on to modify your plan and execute it on more fertile ground. Don't throw good money after bad, a true heart after a false one.

21 Aug JUPITER Square URANUS 03:13 am EDT Tran-Tran 12CA04'
Attempts to leapfrog from idea into execution may be at sixes and sevens for a while, but it's not your problem alone, it's in the air. Troubleshooting and debugging are necessary parts of life's progress, and like everything else, it all happens at once. This makes this not such a good time for leaping into new worlds when the old one still hasn't gotten its act together. Until you're clear about now and know you're on firmer ground, seek out the glitches, the overlooked pieces of the puzzle, the stuff that glues it all together into one working whole, whether that be a marriage or a merger.
