The Dark Goddess spreads her raven crested cloak out against the velvety black sky. Her eyes sparkle like stars and her face glows bright as silver. She is restful and at peace. Lovely as a lily in the moonlight atop a murky pond, she has depths that you are unaware of, a depth that is rooted deep in the mud of her wisdom and experience.
We began the mercury retrograde with a New Moon tonight September 1, 2016. Some call it the Dark Moon. So that means that this Mercury Retrograde is governed by the Dark Moon Goddess or Hidden Goddess. In this sense, dark does not mean evil, rather it is symbolic of the Womb, the Milky Way, Comforter, Secret Wisdom, Holy Spirit, Self Healing, and the Beginning of Creation.
This month, August 30-September 22, 2016, the New Moon coincides with Mercury retrograde, which is juxtaposed between the love abounding sensuality of planets Venus and the jovial fortuitously enriching Jupiter. In short, money and love are snugly in place causing increase where in the natural realm circumstances dictate decrease.
During a normal retrograde things often happen in double. Also whatever lesson or activity you engaged in last retrograde will be revisited. this can vary depending where Mercury is placed in your astrological chart.

How Mercury Retrograde Affects Us
“The aim of Mercury retrograde in your birth chart is for you to perfect those areas of thought and communication which once let you down. As your communication skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be reduced and you can get off the roundabout.
Mercury retrograde in your natal chart can show as learning difficulties, especially with reading, writing and comprehension. You may be a shy, quite person whose thoughts have turned inward. Hesitant to speak up for yourself, you may miss out on many opportunities in life. This difficulty in expressing yourself can make you feel awkward in company and lead to low self-esteem. You may experience teasing or verbal abuse, be nagged and criticized, or fall victim to slander and lies. Contracts may also cause problems and like so many things, lead to complications further down the track.”-Astrology King
Luckily, this retrograde promises healing for those who have suffered abuse in past retrogrades by others. It will not be surprising that you may become verbally attacked, or shut down, or filled with anxiety. But along will come someone who understands and cares about you to buffer the effect and lead you to finally healing this karmic lesson.
To find out what area of your life will be most affected you can book a reading with me as I will identify the area of healing needed AND give you the Angelic empowerment you need to heal thyself!
Mercury Retrograde Survival Tips:
- Mercury retrograde can help us establish good habits. When something is started on a retrograde then during a future retrograde you are more likely to go back and work on that thing.
- Start an exercises program and more healthy eating
- Send out newsletters and marketing on the business side
- Send encouraging notes and letters to friends and loved ones on the personal side
- Begin writing a book or start on that fabulous business idea
- Give to a charity, which unleashes the law of attraction
- Plant a seed of faith expecting harvest, by prayer or ritual, or as a gift to someone
Double the Joy, Double the Fun
Mercury retrograde can help us increase business. When Mercury is in retrograde it tends to double things. So if you get a new customer you will get a second. If you sell a high priced item it is very likely you will sell another. And customers who have visited on previous retrogrades are likely to come back during this time.
Likewise in relationships, if you begin a love search during this time you will receive two for the energy you spend looking for one. If that is what you want then great. But remember every retrograde you will be stuck deciding between two matches until you finally use retrograde to make a decision. It is usually someone you were in a relationship or friendship from your past. But also a retrograde relationship is indicative of a twinflame relationship that has roots in many past lives.
Mercury retrograde gives us an opportunity to go back and finish what was left undone previously. So if you are facing a business change, educational hurdle or love relationship issue this is the ideal time to heal it or overcome it. Now that we are cocooned by Jupiter, the planet of wealth, and Venus the planet of romance and compassionate love, relationships and finances are finally on the mend, and possibly bringing you double the prosperity! So enjoy!
