Part I .

This follow up article is long overdue, but it has occurred to me more than once that writing a blog on Mercury retrograde was never going to be without interruptions. Anyway, better occasionally than never.


I was at a charity shop this afternoon and picked up Robert Graves’ The Greek Myths: I (1955) for pennies. ‘Mercury’ is the Roman name for the Greek god, Hermes. Graves’ account of the myth casts some insight into the nature of Mercury/Hermes, which I will paraphrase in parts and quote in parts here.


We are well into this Mercury retrograde in Cancer now, and I still feel like a salmon swimming upstream. As a break, I was doing some reading on Mercury and found out that it is the only androgynous planet.
