Why Do Planets Effect You?
“As above, so below, as within, so without,” is a famous axiom of the mystic Hermes Trismegistus, author of the, Hermetic Corpus, an ancient book about the laws of the universe. This law simply means there is a nonlocal relationship between everything in nature. In other words, what is occurring in the heavens reflects what is happening back here on earth for you.
The ancients viewed themselves as life. There was no separation between themselves and the things they witnessed happening in life. They also recognized that everything in life was happening spontaneously. Like movie goers they watched the stars because they wanted to understand the story that was unfolding before them and their place in the cosmos.
They recognized that changes in the heaven’s, like the planet mercury’s apparent retrograde motion, coincided with important events happening in their own lives, so they watched the stars and made plans accordingly.
What Is Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury doesn’t actually move backward, since it is the closest planet to the Sun its orbit around the Sun is much shorter than Earth’s. Mercury orbits the Sun about three or four times a year. When mercury speeds past the Earth it appears to start going backward in its orbit.
Attitude And Mindset
Everyone of us have the planet mercury somewhere in our astrology chart. Mercury represents your conscious intellect. The primary way of feeling your mercury is through your attitude or mindset. You can’t really tangibly see someone’s attitude, but you can certainly feel the vibes of their mindset. If someone has a bad attitude you can feel it!
Mercury influences the way you connect with others and your style of communication.
