Angel Whispers – Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde always makes things interesting, especially for anyone who is aware of their sensitivity to the effects of planetary movements. For those who are in touch with this type of influence, you might know the pre-shadow of the current Mercury Retrograde in Aries started March 8th. The post-shadow phase ends on May 4th. This represents a period of time that we normally experience all the Mercury Retrogrades in an entire year.

Mercury goes direct (stats moving forward) in Aries today, which basically means the Universe is sending a message from Mercury asking all of us to calm down! (tee hee) All Mercury Retrogrades this year will occur in Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, which are all fire signs. When Mercury, the planet of communication, passes through these constellations, sensitive people can experience dynamic energies in their lives. 

I’m not super-sensitive, but I do honor the influence of the planets and the stars. When Mercury is changing direction, we are at a wobbly stage where we are likely to slip up, make mistakes, miscommunicate, and misread another’s communications. Anyone else had strange communication mishaps lately? It may not be the best time for accurate communication, but let’s see what the angels have to whisper about Mercury Retrograde:


Humans are replicas of the Solar system in which they live, with the heart representing the Sun and the human body energy centers representing the planets and the stars. Mercury is represented by the Pineal Gland, which expresses the higher consciousness of the evolving soul. Sensitive people are influenced by subtle energies. Conscious exchange of information becomes enhanced by the movement of Mercury during retrograde motion. Motion affects emotion.

Mercury is the messenger that communicates through human connection to the Cosmic Heart of the Universe. With the appearance of a reversal in movement, Mercury is signaling a time to recalibrate through conscious awareness from the mystery of a newfound perspective. Human perception is given the opportunity to make adjustments during such times. Examination of life changes under conditions that evoke higher levels of awareness with expression taking form. Thoughts are more accurately processed by stepping back to pause before taking action.

Humans experience greater awareness when conditions demand a higher level of consciousness to awaken within. Mercury in retrograde reminds humanity that moments of chaos give meaning to the soul that awakens from a deep slumber. Humans fall under this influence like the tides responding to the Moon. Mercury is asking if you are willing to move forward with a vision for the reality of life, which is that change and movement are the only certainties.

Instinct provides the direction that will always lead to returning home to a sovereign state of consciousness. Mercury communicates to every human that they exist in a dimension where the mental space meets consciousness to provide learning, loving, and the opportunity to experience a physical incarnation. Ascension is the soul moving in retrograde to take its rightful position among the stars.

Bring joy, ease suffering and create beauty, then dance like you mean it!
Blessings, Russell

Your heart is the seat of your conscience. If your mind is corrupted, it affects your conscience. The heart is the Sun. The gut is the Moon. The pineal gland is Neptune, and your brain and nervous system (5 senses) are Mercury. What affects the moon or sun affects the entire universe within. So, if you poison the gut, it affects your entire nervous system, your sense of reasoning,
and your senses.” Suzy Kassem
