The planet Mercury rules all communications of all types; talking, texting, writing, and -emails to suggest a few, and affects our self expression and communication style.
In 2014, all Mercury Retrogrades begin in a "water sign" and end in an "air sign"; liken it to water vapour - water to air.
In October, the Mercury Retrograde began on October 4th and ends on October 25th.
Mercury begins in the sign of Scorpio at 2 degrees; just beginning its descent into the deep of that psychic sign. This early beginning point might be viewed as "catching sight of something; a barely visible outline of an underlying truth or hidden reality" in your life.
This Mercury Retrograde ends in Libra, an air sign, so there could be real miracles of seeing or enlightenment - the vapour clearing - that leads to peace.
