Mercury Conjunct Venus Retrograde 2018 Face Cup Fingers Flowers

The Mercury Mind Combined with Venus Art! What a Cup of Tea!

About retrogrades! 

Whether ascending or descending, what a journey! What amazing beauty lies around each new bend. Different directions, different views. What’s behind is out of sight, a memory, what’s ahead is a mystery! Bends give us time to pause, hold steady, slow down. They give us time to think, recalibrate, prepare for the next stretch. In this case, having two planets dancing, you may be a bit dizzy and overwhelmed! At times one is going forward while the other is going backward, and vice versa!

Every Retrograde is unique, per the signs, the planet, the connections made with other planets during their retrograde cycle.

Venus, Libra’s own planet is first! Her complete cycle spans Sep 2 to Dec 17! Mercury follows, his complete cycle Oct 28 to Dec 24, Christmas Eve. Venus goes direct, forward Nov 16 as Mercury starts his retrograde the very same day in Pacific time! Venus starts in her own sign Libra, goes forward into Scorpio, turns Rx in Scorpio. She is predominantly in Scorpio. Mercury starts in Scorpio, goes forward into Sagittarius, retrogrades in Sagittarius, predominantly in Sag! Not only are these Rxs linked back to back, but both planets spend time in Scorpio, making it the pivotal sign between them.

Three signs! Venus establishes awareness of the value of Libra and Scorpio, both relationship signs. She whispers sweet things to Mercury the Messenger! He can’t resist spreading the word, thinks and thinks about what she said as he goes along. Each time he tells the story it is a little bit different, maybe a bit bigger too, LOL! He uses Scorpio wisdom to jump start Sagittarius. Sag wants the meaning of things, especially those things! He makes plans for it to come true! Where Scorpio, knowing the darker side, doesn’t alway trust, Sagittarius trusts Scorpio to remove the greatest encumbrances. Sag has faith all will become well no matter what. He is an excellent Pathfinder and the best ways will be found! He’s good at finding them.

Venus Retrograde Oct 5, Direct Nov 16 Pacific!

Venus Retrogrades from 10 Scorpio 50 back to 25 Libra Oct 5 to Nov 16. The whole three part cycle starts Sep 3, finishes Dec 17. Venus is in her own sign Libra loving beauty, gracing relationships, making introductions, dancing, appraising and balancing values, organizing gatherings. Venus in Scorpio wants more. More return on investment, a deeper relationship, beauty is not required. She depends on her inborn charisma to get her through the dark scary places and dares to go there. Do not underestimate her. Her love is a healing all its own.

Venus retrograde hostesses the Oct 30 Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic and the remarkable 10 DAY sequence that event starts! She is retrograde at 0 Scorpio when the conjunction occurs. The next day she is back in her sign Libra, rebalancing relationships that are quickly going through stunning changes! She connects us with specialist shamans that open gates to future healing. Your relationship with yourself changes. As Uranus returns to Aries Nov 6, Venus is on the spot, helping him renew or establish new connections. She helps the Nov 7 Scorpio New Moon bring ideas to the surface to be linked far and wide. She is at Jupiter’s side Nov 8 as he shifts from Scorpio to Sagittarius, spreading the word that he will be visiting soon, showing the value of his teachings! She knows the anthropological factors that back up what he says.

Being retrograde, Venus goes back to connect any people conduits still needing to be made. The connections are necessary for Mercury Retrograde to go back to share all the exciting information that has been scooped and gathered – especially about the Pluto/Ecliptic event! Libra and Scorpio both are people oriented signs. Libra is social, often holds gatherings in behalf of a cause. It has charm, grace, and understands local and international etiquette. Libra is often involved with anthropology, museums, world arts, plays and symphonies. Scorpio knows your secrets and hopes to make $ with you, love with you, or heal you from the inside out! They are masterful at transformation, have remarkable recovery powers! Mercury will be in Scorpio twice while Venus is, so its a direct transference, specifically when Mercury conjuncts Venus Oct 15! You might connect with a kiss!

Venus makes no aspects during her retrograde cycle. Mercury makes only two aspects during both their entire cycles and both those aspects are to VENUS! Sep 3 Mercury sextiles Venus during the first of the three phases at 25 Leo/Libra 33. They conjunct Oct 15! These back to back retrogrades are indeed linked!

Classic Venus Rx carefuls are don’t expect new relationships to be forever. Be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Better to wait on beautification projects ie remodels, painting your home that color, purchasing a home, new wardrobes, related investments, cosmetic surgery, hair color changes. MAKE BACKUPS OF ALL YOUR DESIGN WORK AS YOU GO ALONG during Venus Rx, but especially during Mercury Rx!

Remember, where our attention goes, our energy flows! We don’t mind when good things come back to us – especially in Venus Rx! A retrograde can find the favorite sweater we misplaced, an old sweetheart may return (be cautious), a beautiful design may continue to be revised, to get better and better! Breaking up is hard to do in Venus Rx. It’s just not over yet and may be fully saved though least expected. Focus on the positives.

Mercury Retrograde Nov 16, Direct Dec 6 Pacific!

Venus asks ‘Who Loves you Baby?’ Mercury says ‘What?!’ It’s down to love and money and whether you sign the papers or not! Venus loves the sensuousness of relationships – body beautiful, exquisite art, intricate sequences and blends of symphony sounds, intricate cultural anthology, and right on down to the fine local handshake with someone you just meet! Venus connects us person to person. Mercury connects your minds, a thought to a thought. It’s not what you say but how you say it. Listening is just as important as speaking, hearing heart to heart. The Venus people connections, and connections with the greater world around us, will expand Mercury’s capacity, his scope of mindfulness, give him a more sophisticated outlook, a greater capacity of attention! Limitless, really.

This last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 retrogrades from 13 Sagittarius 29 back to 27 Scorpio 16 Nov 16 to Dec 6. The three part cycle starts Oct 28, finishes Dec 24, Christmas Eve! Mercury starts in Scorpio, attending to what ails us and the power within us! Secret alliances may be made, but eventually, Mercury will spill the beans. Be ready to make the most of that. Have your explanation script ready and use the revelation to our betterment. Keep your documents handy and facts at your fingertips. If you have been wanting to talk with someone for a long time, this may be your opening. Rxs are good for reviews, but not final resolutions. Share, but don’t sign. In Scorpio don’t be surprised if you are masterfully seduced, but it would truly be better to wait until you know this person well or until you see more of how the situation comes out after Dec 6. If you invest, make it so you can back out instantaneously, or wait. An old health matter may come up again and this a perfect time to take care of it, get to the root. Or, research it, then, with your astrologer, set a surgery date a week or so after Dec 6. Double check security systems before, during and after Mercury Rx in Scorpio.

In Sagittarius there are trip itinerary mix-ups, the plans change, the school, courses and instructors don’t pan out. There can be weight gain as we snack mindlessly while we nervously try to make a decision. Health matters involve something that is too much, too big, hips/thighs. We can pull a muscle just having a great time or racing. Not fair. Gambling can be a too much. Horses, big dogs, be careful. Photography blunders of panoramic vistas may appear to be a mistake, but later prove to be valuable for something you didn’t realize was in the image! Keep them all! Opportunities may come back in an unexpected way. Wait to see more, yes, until after Dec 6.

Classic Mercury Rx is don’t sign those papers, or do everything to make it possible for that to happen so it doesn’t fall though. Escrows can fall through. They don’t return your calls. The dog ate it. Your computer has a snit. Or you do, LOL! Rule is be sure purchases are from reputable firms that have reliable returns/guarantees/warranties. Be sure the company is legitimate before you deal. Even then, have a backup plan.

Sagittarius has such optimism! It may be just too good to be true, or Sag may be just so lucky as to succeed against the odds! We may find that lost winning lotto ticket! That would be ok! You may feel to revive your blog. Things have changed and you’ve got great new stuff to say. People can use that info! Resubmit for publishing. Play with the idea of going somewhere you have always wanted to go. Bet there’s a way you can do it! Good luck!

Mercury, not Rx yet, is at 29 Scorpio when Pluto conjuncts the Ecliptic Oct 30! But 9:39 PM Pacific that evening it goes into Sagittarius! Mercury’s main job this time, and during the following Rx, is much more important than the usual mixing up your travel plans! It follows not only Venus Rx, but the major Pluto/Ecliptic event TEN day sequence! Some of those whose charts are connected will be reeling! Mercury is ordained to be the Messenger of what that all means, from deep and dark to the brilliant light of the Sun! It’s a perfect job for Mercury in Sagittarius! Sag automatically sees the best of things, the perspective of past to future, collects the data, makes the plans, and with faith filling its heart, teaches the Way! That is especially important because the last event of the 10 day sequence is Jupiter going into its own sign, Sagittarius!

This Venus Retrograde is important not just for being retrograde, but for hosting the intense 10 day Pluto conjunct the Ecliptic sequence Oct 30 to Nov 8 (in RED below)! She makes double sure significant changes are made. Since their cycle aspects overlap, here is the entire timetable:

You may be a bit exhausted after this entire 4 months long sequence. Sometimes it takes even longer as what was brought up needs time to be integrated into your now different way of living! Will life ever be smooth again? Of course! Then you will wish for some changes and you know they will come!

Be sweet and keep telling our story! It’s in your hands.

Be wise. Check carefully with your astrologer about your personal timing!
