Mercury Rx in Virgo: Great for Some, But Hard for Others

mercuryplanetMercury has been retrograde (Rx) in the sign of Virgo since August 30th and will go direct on September 22, 2016. Mercury Rx is “combust” the Sun, which means that it is hidden from sight because the bright light of the Sun blots out any planet near it. If you have someone who has recently “returned” to your life, there may be something that you can’t “see” clearly yet about that person or your relationship with them.

In Horary astrology, when any planet, especially Mercury, is in a Mercury sign (Gemini or Virgo) and combust the Sun, it usually means that the person represented by Mercury or any other planet in a Mercury sign, is “amoral” (not necessarily immoral) and could be doing something sketchy while that planet is combust the Sun.

This means that no one can “see” the person in question doing their questionable deeds. Mercury can be a trickster.

mercury-tricksterIf this person has been untrustworthy in the past, or has treated you poorly, but now they’re saying they’ve changed, or they are apologizing for past behavior, don’t just believe them or accept it on face value. Wait, at least, until Mercury is no longer combust the Sun. The Sun will be going into the sign of Libra on September 23rd, and Mercury will no longer be combust. Whatever you couldn’t see before, will become clear then.

Combust planets in Mercury signs are NOT all bad though, it could also mean that it’s a good time to do something that you don’t want others to know about, and it doesn’t have to be anything amoral. If you are a Virgo Sun person, for instance, your family and friends could be sneaking around behind your back in order to delight you with a surprise birthday party!

Mercury is in his most powerful sign in Virgo. Here, he is even more adept at managing (Mercury is the manager) the details of life, successfully virgoglyphrunning and completing projects that have many facets, details and people involved (like a big surprise birthday party, for instance). Virgo is a day-strong sign and is full of “know how.” Virgo is an earth element sign and is most interested in being useful and in preventing difficulties in life, especially health problems (which is why so many of your Virgo friends are health nuts).

Mercury rules fun and sense of humor, fairness, the law and business. Why would Mercury be considered to be amoral if he has so many great qualities? Well, when you need to get things done, sometimes you need to go through unofficial channels. Anyone who has had to wait on red tape and senseless bureaucratic rules knows how that can really hang things up, or prevent them all together. Mercury is great at getting around this type of situation without causing any real harm.

Mercury Rx-Lover ReturningMercury Rx can bring people back into your life as well. Mercury represents friends, relatives in general, business partners, and sometimes romantic partners if Mercury is a relationship planet for you (if you are a Sagittarius or Pisces rising person, or if Mercury is the planet at the lowest degree in your birth chart, not counting the nodes or Neptune, Pluto, or Uranus, or if Mercury is in your 7th house).

FORECAST for the Signs UNDER SPECIAL OFFER BELOW:

HORARY ASTROLOGY: Will my husband/wife/lover come back to me, can we make it work this time? Can I trust my business partner, or, is this a good person to go into business with? Is this a good project to take on, will it be successful? Will/would I win in court (Mercury rules the law)? Will I ever see my sister again? Can my computer be fixed or should I just get a new one? Would I enjoy attending the family reunion or would it be a drama fest like last time?

These are typical Horary questions I get when Mercury is Rx. In the One Topic Horary consultation, if you have any questions like this, or any other questions, Horary can answer them in amazing detail! Learn About Horary.

Then, of course, in the Ready-for-Love reading, if you also have the birth data of a person you hope will return to you, or someone who has actually returned to you, we would look at the Relationship Capacity and the Compatibility between you to see what will flow easily between you and what areas you’ll need to put more conscious effort into to make the relationship work long-term, this time.

Mercury Rx in VIRGO is NOT the Same for Everyone

**If you don’t know what your natal Moon sign is, go HERE and get your FREE birth chart printout. You can read these from your Sun Sign too, but it works best from your natal Moon sign.

Mercury Rx in Virgo ChartMercury in Virgo, direct or Rx, is in a great sign for you to get things done, have fun with friends and relatives, find an awesome business partner, get a promotion, or make it work with an ex, if your Moon sign is in Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius, or Scorpio. In the interest of keeping this post from becoming a book, I won’t go into the details for the favorable natal Moon positions from transiting Mercury, because good is good!

When Mercury is in the sign of Virgo, whether it’s Rx or not, it does bring problems for people who have their natal MOON in the signs of Virgo, Cancer, Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn, and Libra. Mercury goes into Libra on October 8th, so just hang on until then!

The natal Moons signs of Aries, Cancer and Leo are neutral because their favorable or unfavorable effects are being blocked by other transiting planets this year.

#*&@! (Not Fun) Positions of the Natal Moon from Mercury Rx in Virgo:

VIRGO: When Mercury is in the same sign as your natal Moon sign, it’s a tough time for you. You need to watch out for thieves, people spreading false rumors about you, enemies, duplicity, imprisonment (or just feeling like you’re trapped), quarrels, misunderstandings with relatives, loss of money caused by unlawful words, writings, and if you’re traveling you won’t hear one kind word from anyone.

Change your passwords, protect your credit cards, lock your windows and doors at night and when you’re away, avoid relatives if you can, and be careful what you write. This is not the best time for travel to distant places.

CANCER: When Mercury is in the 3rd sign from your natal Moon, it’s not completely difficult for you because you will gain wealth and general prosperity even if you do suffer some kind of humiliation as well.

TAURUS: You would think that when Mercury is 5th from your natal Moon, it would be favorable, but now you are more likely to have quarrels with your spouse/partner and children, and you won’t be able to enjoy your spouse even if they are being very sweet and charming.

PISCES: When Mercury is 7th from your natal Pisces Moon, you lose your luster and have frequent quarrels with people. My Moon is in Pisces and I have noticed that I’m getting annoyed more easily with my husband (I’ve already had to apologize three times) and I’m more critical of myself right now too.

I made a list of everything that I’m grateful for in my life, especially about my husband, and I’m making an effort to remember my past wins. It’s amazing how much it helps.

CAPRICORN: It’s when Mercury is 9th from your natal Moon that you have more of the classical Mercury in Rx experiences. There are obstacles in the way no matter what you’re doing and you’re uncomfortably aware of any health issues you have too. Try not to be too exasperated when you have to do things over again, think of it as being a natural part of the process and you won’t get as irritated by it.

LIBRA: Mercury is in the 12th sign from your natal Libra Moon, and no planet is favorable in that position. With Mercury being there you are more troubled by enemies, insults, health issues, and won’t enjoy union with your lover/wife/husband even when they are bedecked and looking fantastic.

Mercury here is more likely to make you notice little things that bug you about your beloved. Try to remember it’s just a temporary change in consciousness and it’s not because they’ve really become less attractive.

It’s Good MORE Than 50% of the Time

If you are having a harder time than usual during this Mercury Rx period, it may help to know that seven times a year, everyone’s Moon Sign gets to be in a FAVORABLE position from transiting Mercury, while there are only five unfavorable positions from the natal Moon.

Mercury is a relatively fast-moving planet, typically staying in a sign for an average of 18 days. When it is in it’s apparent Retrograde motion, of course, it stays in a sign longer than that (it will be in the sign of Virgo for a total of 69 days this year), but Mercury goes retrograde only three times a year.

What we can learn about ourselves, and the subsequent positive changes we make, during these “inauspicious” Mercury Rx times are invaluable, and much longer-lasting than ALL of Mercury’s transits. Mercury Rx, even when it is not in a favorable position for you, is an opportunity to go back and do things in a better way, find out who your friends really are, make better decisions in business, and maybe finally kick that ex to the curb for good.

HORARY ASTROLOGY: Will my husband/wife/lover come back to me, can we make it work this time? Can I trust my business partner, or, is this a good person to go into business with? Is this a good project to take on, will it be successful? Will/would I win in court (Mercury rules the law)? Will I ever see my sister again? Can my computer be fixed or should I just get a new one? Would I enjoy attending the family reunion or would it be a drama fest like last time?
