How Mercury Retrograde Might Affect the Presidential Election

I am going to indulge myself for a
moment and preface this post with mentioning that I actually know this
astrologer, Eric Francis. As chance would have it, this article was
sent to my email. I had a personal reading with him back somewhere
around 2006 when I was preparing to make a significant change in my
life. I was very please with what I received and it helped me at that
time to get where I needed to go. So from this perspective, at least, I
can vouch for Eric. Not to mention of course he is writing for the
Huffington Post, which speaks to the quality of the writing. The
synchronicity is a nice confirmation that what I am doing here has in
fact taken root. And the information is fairly compelling. Enjoy.

Mercury Retrograde Election Day
by Eric Francis for the Huffington Post
October 3, 2012

Something happens this year that's never happened before in American
history: Mercury stations retrograde on the day of a presidential

Just about everyone who follows astrology has heard the term "Mercury
retrograde." This is an approximately three-week spell, happening three
times a year, wherein Mercury appears to move backwards through the
zodiac. It's a visual illusion -- Mercury is actually passing between
the Earth and the Sun, creating an apparent rather than real effect.
(Mercury's year is a third the length of ours, hence, this happens three
times a year).

I know it seems like a lot more frequently than that. Lots of people
say that "Mercury is always retrograde," which is not true -- but
Mercury is always Mercury, which means it's tricky, and requires a
combination of cleverness, skill and respect to handle, whether moving
retrograde or direct.

The first and last days of any Mercury retrograde are usually the
most challenging. Those days are called stations, which is short for
stationary; one is that station retrograde (when the retrograde begins),
and one is the station direct (when it ends). The word station in this
context means "changes directions."

There can be considerable confusion on the day of Mercury station,
and in fact for about four days on either side there's something
astrologers refer to as the Mercury storm. Think of this as the change
of direction rippling out in time. It's turbulent, just like a ferry
pulling into the dock, with the captain putting the engines in reverse
to slow the ship down. When that happens, the water is churning in all

On the day of a Mercury station, that's how the mental and psychic
energy feels. We get the worst, and the most interesting, manifestations
of the retrograde on the days that it begins and ends -- and that
happens next on Nov. 6, the day of the 2012 presidential election, when
Mercury stations retrograde in early Sagittarius.

Someone on the Planet Waves research team compared all the dates of
retrogrades to the dates of presidential elections, and discovered that
Mercury has never before stationed retrograde on a the day of a
presidential election. And it's only stationed direct once. Take a guess
what year that was.
It was 2000, when Al Gore won the election and George Bush took
office. Remember the chaos that surrounded that election? It really was
classic Mercury station material. And it's not a good precedent.
Clearly, it was a terrible outcome; we ended up with a president who
owed nothing to the people, because the people did not elect him. The
Supreme Court elected him, in part by halting a recount. (The station
direct happened in Libra, the scales -- an appropriate sign for
describing judicial intervention.)

A Long Process Begins Nov. 6
Mercury stationing retrograde on Election Day begins a long process
of the retrograde, just in the last hours of the voting process. All of
the tallying, the news reporting, the certifications and the legal
challenges, will happen not just under a retrograde; most of it will
happen under the influence of the station and the subsequent retrograde.
This is unlikely to be pretty.

We are looking at the possibility of irregularities that could take
weeks or months to sort out, and where the truth may never be known. The
results may seem to change suddenly. With the retrograde happening in
Sagittarius (another sign associated with the courts) there are likely
to be legal challenges. My colleagues and I at Planet Waves have been
analyzing this chart for a year; it seems to illustrate the meltdown of
the electoral process.

I know most people think the polls are running in Obama's direction,
though we still have the endgame to consider -- and from the looks of
the astrology it's going to be quite a game indeed.
We've been talking about this for many months now. There are efforts
afoot in many states to block voter participation. All these efforts
conclude on a presidential Election Day -- the first in history -- where
Mercury stations retrograde. It makes perfect sense, really, at least
as an illustration and even pointing to a result.

If there is a silver lining to this whole business, it's this. I've
noticed observing many, many Mercury retrogrades that they have a common
property: The truth comes out. Whatever we witness, we will have access
to seeing a bit more of reality than we're accustomed to. The question
is, will we recognize it when we do? Will anyone care? Or will it stoke
cynicism? If anything happens to the Internet, we will have a clue why
that might be.

There's an especially interesting factor in the chart for the
retrograde, which suggests the potential for even more complications
than normal. Mercury will be in Sagittarius, and Jupiter will be in
Gemini. If you know a little astrology you might recognize that Mercury
will be in Jupiter's sign and Jupiter will be in Mercury's sign. That's a
rare condition called mutual reception.

It can have several effects. One is that the planets can seem to
trade places in their influence. We have to look carefully what's coming
from what direction, who is projecting and who might be blaming someone
with doing with what they just did.

Another interpretation is that of a hostage situation. The two
planets are in a sense held captive in a sign they have little in common
with. This suggests that seemingly different political theories and
approaches actually support one another. In an election, we're supposed
to be differentiating between the candidates, but we don't usually
notice the ways in which their approaches and conduct are similar or

We tend to overlook the ways that boundaries that are breached during
Republican administrations become business as usual during Democratic
administrations. Behind the facade of ideology is the fact that "the
business of America is business," and I don't mean the local ice cream
shop. I mean the companies that can afford to buy elections -- and I
mean the business of war. All the political shenanigans we witness have
one end, really -- the perpetuation of constant war.

The Last Weeks of the Race
Let's look at the few weeks prior to the election, which are just as
interesting as Mercury stationing retrograde. On Saturday. Oct. 6, one
month before the election, Mars arrives in Sagittarius. Mars is the
planet of war -- and Mars will be in aspect to Neptune, which can imply
"drunk with... " and also "deceived about... "

Sagittarius is also the sign of international affairs; Mars trekking
across this sign in the last weeks of the election and for the week
after looks like some kind of contentious international event, and if it
happens, you can be pretty sure it's false flag (meaning concocted). In
the first week of November -- right before the election -- Mars is
right in the thick of the Sagittarius mix, making contact with a group
of small planets that carry themes of cruelty, warfare, grief and
mourning. Are we looking at some outsized terrorism event? An
assassination? A 'new' war? We know that Israel and Iran are factors
that could definitely influence the election, particularly if there is
some huge false-flag event that precedes Nov. 6.

We are also in the midst of the 2012 aspect -- Uranus square Pluto,
which spans from mid-2012 through early 2015. This is an aspect of
revolution, but the question is, whose revolution?
On one level, all of this chaos that is happening in the world -- and
that may emerge as the election approaches -- is a ruse. It's being
used by people who have other agendas, those that thrive in conditions
where order has been broken up into a kind of cultivated anarchy. The
chart for the 2012 election is a warning to be aware of the agendas that
are at play.

As author Chris Hedges wrote
after the Citizens' United decision that allowed unlimited corporate
spending in elections: "Liberals, socialists, trade unionists,
independent journalists and intellectuals, many of whom were once
important voices in our society, have been silenced or targeted for
elimination within corporate-controlled academia, the media and
government." So what are we to do? Pay attention. Yes, vote. Help bring
out the vote; encourage others (especially young people) to vote and try
to take at least one other person to the polls, who might not normally

But voting is not enough. It is absolutely not enough. Not now -- and
not ever. Question what you see and hear in the media. Question your
own opinions. Educate others about what you learn. Use every tool at
your disposal to get the word out. Take a personal stand and refuse to
believe lies, and refuse to be manipulated. Research the truth yourself,
and try to figure out what's really going on. Yes, Mercury will be
retrograde, and it may be hard to get to the bottom of things. But
astrology is no excuse.
