Beat It: Mercury Rx

went Direct July 9th at 10:15 pm EDT, and will remain in it's
shadow until it reaches the degree it stationed Rx, on June 15th
at 11.36° of Cancer
I know you all love the Mercury Rx effect and this time it was
absolutely precise! On June 15 Mercury went Retrograde and
the DOW was 13619 that day. On July 9th Mercury turned direct
and the DOW was 13669.
85% of the time the Dow is within
1% at the Mercury Direct station as it was at the Mercury Rx station.
My opinion of Astrological Cycles
is if you can't beat them Join 'em! And I assure you that you
can't beat them. That is what I like about cycles. While I certainly
don't understand every cycle, I really understand Mercury Retrograde.
From time to time I actually write long articles about Mercury
Retrograde and The
Textbook for Financial Astrology contains my favorites.
My husband and I have natal Mercury Rx. Neither one of us
can get away with making decisions or purchases during a Mercury
Rx. This Mercury Rx found us sending fax messages three
times in order to get a prescription correct. This past
month we have spent countless hours with Dell Tech Support trying
to survive the Vista software. Now that Mercury is direct,
I plan to try again.
You will hear from a lot of astrologers that Mercury Rx has very
little effect on their life. Bologna Salami! If you can
remember to call them during a Mercury Rx day, ask what have you
done today that you had to repeat twice. I hate it when
I have to do the same thing twice, but I expect it when Mercury
is retrograde. Repeating anything is costly in terms of
time and money. For example: repeating an E trade means you get
to pay the brokerage fee twice.
Evidently very successful folks such as J.K. Rohling know the
value of astrological cycles. My grandchildren are huge
Harry Potter fans. Notice that the release of the movie
is right after Mercury turned direct July 11, 2007 and the release
of the final book in the series occurs July 21 ahead of the Venus
Check the Cancer
New Moon forecast for more info on Venus.
Marley's note: Let's all watch Apple
and the "Free the Iphone" controversy regarding the
goal of convincing Congress and the FCC to toss out the five-year
exclusivity period between AT&T and the Apple iPhone. The
Iphone was released during Mercury Rx on June 29th. (I am
not yet personally convinced of buying a high tech gadget that
was debuted during both Uranus and Mercury Rx!) It will
be interesting to watch.
