Mercury Retrograding in my 12th House; Born with Mercury in my 7th House and Moon in my 7th House of Relationships/Partnerships

This isn’t an important note to read.  Only when you’re bored out of your mind since it’s mumbo jumbo astro talk.  Wanted to warn you first before you get half way into it and you’re going, “What the hell is he talking about now?” haha  Since you know I’m pretty good at examining birth chart wheels and where everything is and how that affects somebody.  I looked to see where Mercury was Retrograding in my chart at the moment this month and it’s in the Final 12th House.  I know this means nothing to you and I say this to friends and they always look at me perplexed, “Wuz that mean?” Or even more frustrated, “What the hell does that mean?”  Then after I explain, they then go, “Where’s mine?  Can you look up mine?”

I was born with Mercury in my 7th house of relationships which is why I tend to thrive in relationships.  I need to communicate and exchange ideas and information at top form with a love partner. The potential downfall to that placement is spending too much time thinking about your relationship or relationships in general.  This placement makes me want a partner that provides me with mental satisfaction and challenge, which is why everyone I got serious with was because of the mental connection in the end, not just looks which help.  They were easy on the eyes, but what people really noticed when I was with each of them was, “Wow they seem like brothers or best friends.”  The person who gives me a lively flow of ideas, ideas that challenge and test my own mental processes, one who brings out my best mentally or stimulates me in a way that others may not understand.  My partner may be quick-witted, volatile, restless, high-strung as well as outspoken, argumentative, wordy and critical.  Mercury is the mind and communications. I communicate best while in a relationship.

The Moon was ALSO in my 7th house of relationships when I was born which makes me ‘feel’ and ‘express’ myself more efficiently while in a relationship.  That’s why I tend to naturally be for relationships and so adamant in having one.  I can’t help it. Its just part of my make up.  In the right relationship and with the right person I thrive.  The downfall with the Moon is the need to find someone who can bring the ultimate security and we all know that security can only be found within.  This is also why this placement makes me go through many changes with partners because of choosing the wrong ones who didn’t provide balance or tenacity.  The Moon here makes one desire companionship so intensely, which is not a surprise that I not only talk my friends ears off about it, but I also write about it. The Mercury (mind/communication) and Moon (emotions/feeling) in my relationship house in this lifetime are great placements for a long term relationship with someone, but with the RIGHT person.  And they feel it in their bones and think it and breathe it.  They can’t help it.  Anyway that’ll probably help to explain why I drone on about it.  Its my nature.

Back to the top of the note, Mercury is Retrograding now through my 12th house.  What they say about that is exactly what I’ve been going through as many around me have picked up on this week:

For the next three weeks you may feel like you’re waiting for things to come together, but you don’t know exactly what they are. Kind of like watching a row of seeds you’ve planted — you hope something is happening, but it’s hard to tell. Events for you are, in fact, restructuring themselves behind the scenes, and you may be in for some surprises when all is resolved. Your best course is to make as few assumptions as possible and don’t bet on the same old horses. Be open to your own intuitive hunches and be ready to jump aboard a new bandwagon when it suddenly materializes. It may come from closer than you think and from those you might have taken for granted.
