Mercury Retrograde Turns Direct - November 1, 2007 - The Warriors

Mercury turns direct in Libra on November 1, causing the astrological world to heave a sigh of relief. If you were holding off on Mercurial projects (mailings, business deals, legal affairs, leaving your house), now is a good time to resume what you want. In the few days following Mercury’s second station – another term for the point at which Mercury turns direct – Mercury will still be moving slowly as it picks up speed. But there is a silver lining to this: Mercury will be conjunct the benefic fixed star Spica, which should make your work go more smoothly.

Mercury is happier in Libra than in Scorpio (which Mercury enters on November 11) because the airy nature of Libra is much more compatible with Mercury’s communication- and movement-oriented personality. Also, Mercury rules the air triplicity by night, so for optimal Mercury strength, it’s best to start your Mercury projects after sundown before Mercury enters Scorpio on 11/11.

Mercury in Scorpio is not as favorable as Libra, though by no means terrible. There are some areas of incompatibility between Scorpio and Mercury. For one, Scorpio is one of the mute signs, which does not go with talkative Mercury. Similarly, Mercury is not as quick and cerebral in the water signs – Mercury’s winged sandals don’t help him as much in the water as they do in the air. While there are a few powerful fixed stars in Scorpio, acting while Mercury is on Spica is a rather better bet.

    Hi Fi!

    Eh, she could probably do worse. On any given day, something is always retrograde. If Mercury is important in her or the spouse’s chart, esp. when it comes to relationships, she might have some trouble.
