At the moment we are in Mercury Retrograde. This started on September 17 and will last until October 9. When Mercury goes retrograde, its apparent forward motion (relative to the Earth) seems to stop. When this happens, astrologically, it usually causes problems with electronics and communication, among other things. There have already been some moderately severe space weather events that have interfered with high frequency radio communications, such as the high A-Indexes we have had recently (45 and above).
I have also noticed that at drive-up windows at fast food restaurants that my order gets taken wrong, and I was even shortchanged once. It’s a good idea to pay attention to details at this time, especially when dealing with other people. There can be mechanical problems also. I got the oil changed in the car about a day before Mercury went retro, and there was a problem with it. I had to take the car back the next day and get them to fix their mistake.
This Mercury Retrograde has barely even started and both Cat and I are feeling it very strongly. Everything seems slow. I keep wondering how much more difficult it is for people who are more impatient than I am. In addition, I usually find it difficult to think well during these periods. (It’s been a bit of a struggle to write this blog.) It’s easy to forget things, and things that one would normally say just don’t get said. I have to make an effort at these times to express myself clearly and unambiguously.
When Mercury goes retrograde, it’s a good idea to keep in mind that anything you start during this time may have to be rechecked or redone. It’s not a good time for signing legal documents or contracts unless those things have been in process for a while.
In the last month I’ve been getting some impressions about the future. Actually these have been coming to me for over 20 years. I kept hearing the theme song from “Terminator 2.” It has always made me quite emotional, and I used to think that it was because I had gone to a Nazi death camp (Dachau) in a previous life. But recently I have realized, with Kat’s help (she’s a psychic with Fortell), that these songs are about the future. I have written previously of my belief that there will be an Ice Age in the future. However, I have realized lately that this will be preceded by some kind of large explosion that will wipe out a lot of mankind. I don’t know if it’s a nuclear explosion but it could be. It’s more likely some kind of sunrelated event, like a huge coronal mass ejection. I have read that they can push the magnetic field down towards the earth if they are strong enough. I kept seeing a huge fireball in the sky, but am not sure of its origin. It might even be from an asteroid that grazes the Earth’s atmosphere, like the Tunguska Event of June 30th, 1908 in Siberia, which flattened 770 square miles of forest.
In revisiting the dream I had in 1993 about the coming Ice Age, I realized there was an aspect of it that I had glossed over. In the dream it was so hot that there was no ocean left. So now I am wondering if there won’t be some kind of extreme heat event (like a drought) before the Ice Age hits. In fact I have often thought that the climate might do a flip-flop, and go from being really hot and dry to all of a sudden going into an Ice Age. I know this is probably difficult to understand, because there is so much talk about Global Warming. But I think this may have happened before and that perhaps the Mayans knew this was coming when they made their calendar end in 2012.
The climate, which we assume is stable, periodically changes. It came to me some years ago that the climate is a series of quasi-static equilibrium states. They appear to be stable depending on what time scale you use to examine them. But they can, and do, change, and we don’t know why. The good news is that it seems that the Ice Age won’t get here for another 15 or 20 years or so. That’s the impression I have lately, and Kat agrees. So we may have a long time to go before everything changes. I can only hope that a lot of good comes out of this. It’s hard to imagine, but it’s what I have to believe. Whatever happens, it will be a pivotal event for our race – of that I am sure.
