Mercury, the planet that rules the mind, is turning direct on February 11, 2015– just in time for Valentine’s Day — after having gone through another one of its retrograde phases. This was our opportunity to reflect and ask ourselves if we “missed something?” It was an excellent time to review, research, revise, reevaluate and reconsider all our plans so we could make more successful decisions when Mercury goes direct. So, let us rejoice because there are a lot of benefits we may have received from this past Mercury retrograde.
What really happens when a planet moves from retrograde to direct motion is more akin to waking up from a deep slumber. Mercury will need time to drink some cosmic coffee and fully regain consciousness. We might be flooded with energies that are hard to make sense of as the change takes place today, however, and thus important decision-making might be avoided for the time being.
