Intuitive Forecast for Mercury Retrograde and the U.S. Election

By this time tomorrow night, we may be getting some of the returns from the 2012 Election. But will it be over by the time we political afficionados (okay, junkies) finally fall into bed? Sadly, maybe not. That may be because at 4:04 pm Mountain Time - or 6:04 pm on the east coast, with polls still open - Mercury goes Retrograde. I pulled out my cards to get some insight into the intuitive energy patterns for both this Mercury Retrograde cycle, and the U.S. election:

Right now, dear readers, we are overlighted by the Star of Change. This is a basic universal energy that supports making way for growth and progress. Change has certainly been a rallying cry for a large segment of our voters, and a campaign motif used by President Obama in the 2008 election. This President, imo, understands the nature of Change. Look at this selection of quotes from his recent campaign speeches:

We know what change looks like. And what he’s selling ain't it. Giving more power to the biggest banks is not change. Another $5 trillion tax cut favoring the wealthy -- not change. Refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. That's an old trick. Ruling out compromise by pledging to rubber-stamp the tea party’s agenda in Congress -- not change. Changing the facts when they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change....

We know what real change is. We know what the future requires. And we also know it won’t be easy. ... You know that I know what real change looks like because you’ve seen me fight for it. I’ve got the scars to prove it. I’ve got the gray hair to prove it. (Laughter.) And you’ve had my back in that fight. And after all we’ve been through together, we can’t give up on it now. We’ve got more work to do.

Coming up ahead of us is the Window, an energy state that supports the idea of taking a pause to observe and gain perspective. I see this as applying to us as individuals. After all of the activity leading up to the election, most of us political afficionandos (or "junkies) will need a little time to kick back and regroup before the holiday season comes upon us. Mercury Retrograde is always good time to reflect and regroup, but don't go too indolent for too long. This retrograde period ends on November 26, and you should definitely be up and moving by then!

The final energy in this forecast, and the one our Higher Self most wants us to pay attention to, is the Sea. This is a fulfillment of acceptance and enfolding. For the individual soul, it's like coming home to float in the warm, cradling sea. But on the national level - one of our candidates specifically mentioned the Sea, as I recall. Unfortunately it didn't work out too well for him:


Perhaps we are thus being given this energy to pay attention to, because it really is time to pay attention to the harm we've done to this planet, and the changes we need to make to heal it - and ourselves. And maybe, at last, we are ready!

One last word about tomorrow's celestial patterns: I've been told by those who study such things that the Mercury Retrograde as well as the positions of Jupiter and Neptune are eerily similar to election day in 2000. No, we do NOT want a replay of that disaster! And we don't have to go through it again - Retrograde patterns often bring us back to a familiar situation, just so we have the opportunity to get it right this time.

Let's do it - let's get it right! I have the strong intuition that if we can each get clarity, see the truth of the situation, and vote for our country's and our own best interests - that we will indeed get it right this time.
