Archetype of Trickster – Clown and the Fool by Tony Crisp
Mercury turns retrograde on June 7th, (see times below) and it’s honing up to be a corker. I mean that in the best possible way. If you’ve been throwing yourself into the ‘wrong for you ‘ direction, you hit the skids and anything not tied down goes flying. The best possible way to deal with this is allow it to nurture you. That’s right. Nurture. The apparent backward motion of Mercury is a time to check in to you thoughts, sort through and, in the grace of your own time, hold onto the ones that serve you and release the ones that do not. Simple, easy and relaxed.
If you find you’re getting wound up into a twist, consider that you might not have released the thoughts (plans, expectations, tolerations, assumptions) that aren’t in alignment with your authentic self. Revisit, rethink, reconsider . . . rewind and revision your life however you want it to be. You’re the boss here, not some outside force of telecommunications, technology, physiology or meteorology. You call the shots. Stand up, and do so! If it involves you taking time away from the usual routine, then do so!

With Mercury Rx, you want to rethink, reconsider, review, reevaluate ideas and FEELINGS and THOUGHTS in the house where Mercury is transiting. Ask, what constitutes love and nurturing to me? The most primary way you can improve your life at this time is to boost self-Love! Yes, that’s it. Nurture your own heart.
Love yourself despite what you thought were your shortcomings: your character flaws, your love handles, low credit score, police record, your failed marriage, cluttered house, negative thoughts. Love yourself unconditionally. – Jeannette Maw – read more on how to boost self-love!
Remember Mercury Rx is a Trickster energy. It comes along when we are stuck, or a feeling trapped, out of touch with authenticity of SELF. When we get into such a state, sooner or later the Trickster will blow the doors and windows open so we can breathe fresh air again. In the sign of Cancer, the trickster turns our inner, emotional world upside down, so we can get ourselves correct.
Here are scopes based on the ‘solar houses’ sign (your sun sign), or the actual house Mercury is transiting, if you know it. Read all as Mercury goes from Cancer back to Gemini (possibly two different houses for you). Love to hear of your experiences in the comments!
ARIES: Mercury in the 4th house – Thoughts turn to home life, family and symbiotic connections. Give yourself enough ‘me’ time to appreciate recent inner growth and development. Ask what family means to you. Home? Sanctuary. Is there anything you believe that could be limiting your experience of others? Listen. Love. Reflect!
TAURUS: Mercury in the 3rd house – The Mercury Rx puts the Trickster in control of your tongue. You say one thing and they hear another. Emails, sans body language, get misconstrued. Don’t even think about sending text msg without punctuation. But it’s excellent for revising manuscripts or creative projects put on the back burner. Go there!
GEMINI: Mercury in the 2nd house – Use this Mercury Rx to get in touch with what really gives you a sense of peace and happiness, then let go of the outmoded core values and actions. Awareness is the first step. It will lead to skill and talent development that is more authentic than you ever though possible. Expect a clean fresh $$ Vibe.
CANCER: Mercury in the first house – Mercury Rx meanders through your home, work, Self and relationship life. Everything! Best reflect on what you believe about what you do, where you do it, whom you do it with. How? Just set an intention to notice the things you like about your life and smile. Exhale and limitations are going, going, gone.
LEO: Mercury in the 12th house - With Mercury Rx in your solar 12th house, it’s time to go ‘in’ and listen to your dreams. Not daydream/Dollhouse fantasies of achievement, goals, challenges and actions, but really sink deep into the depths of your soul. What messages are welling up from there? Watch for synchronicity, tune into feelings, be of service.
VIRGO: Mercury in the 11th house – Mercury Rx in your 11th house of friends and groups can turn the usual gatherings into a mix of emoticons, all rolling about in different directions. The question is how do you feel? Allow for a new view when it comes to social connections, and find ways to relax amid the tension. Gems emerge when you aren’t looking.
LIBRA: Mercury in the 10th house – Career, mission or profession can feel like a dream time journey, with the auto focus weaving in and out! This is good news! For the next three weeks you let go of trying to micromanage your future and ‘make things happen.’ Let your neurons relax so the universe can open new doors to infinite possibilities!
SCORPIO: Mercury in the 9th house -Travel or study plans turn into the trickster’s playground for the next three weeks. Deep breaths. Remember, it’s not about forging ahead right now, but finding peace and serenity in the midst of contrast. Take time out to reconsider your world view. Is it what you think, or what you are expected to think?
SAGITTARIUS: Mercury in the 8th house – Mercury Rx in your house of shared resources has you reconsidering any joint financial arrangements, both income and debt. As you sift through possibilities, you’ll discover creative ways to organize and restructure the boundaries to your liking. You decide, but not yet. Let it marinate for a while. Go have fun.
CAPRICORN: Mercury in the 7th house – Communication with partners, practical or intimate, goes a bit zany– muddled and/or blurred! It’s not the best time to come to any conclusions as wires get crossed. Use your gut feelings to make choices that can’t be delayed, and ask what you believe about partnerships. Rethink your relationships, without judgement.
AQUARIUS: Mercury in the 6th house - Mercury Rx through your 6th house of well-being says reconsider your lifestyle. Is this really what you want, or are you there because of circumstances ‘beyond your control?’ (ha!) Take stock of your nutrition, exercise, healthy care, comfort zone and routine. Start with what you believe about your body! More Self-Love! More magic!
PISCES: Mercury in the 5th house – This is a time to go into cruise control on the creative realm and practice the art of allowing. Think play, recreate and relax. Consider where you can expand your beliefs and live more in the ‘now’. The goal is to drop judgment and experience life in the red hot moment. And it will be red hot!
Happy Mercury Rx. Have fun as you slow down the pace and give everything a re-think!
