Mercury retrograde Capricorn…

December 19th, 2016 thru’ January 8th, 2017.

This ode is inspired by the astrological phenomenon where the planet Mercury (ruler of communications and travel, tech and gadgets etc) appears to slow down; stop (station) and reverse its usual forward motion in the heavens. This “retrograde” planetary motion occurs approximately three or four times a year.

So from December 19th, 2016 until January 8th, 2017, Mercury retrogrades in the Cardinal, earthy zodiac sign of Capricorn (represented by the mountain-goat or the mythical fish-tailed goat; reliable donkey etc). Hence a lot of “Re” words referenced in the poem, below.

This ode is also inspired by the astrological insights provided by the Astro Twins,  Tali & Ophi Edut. Please check them out at


Mercury retrograde Capricorn:

Another cosmic rewind. Endless, slow motion days.

The real world in flux. Travel status update: “expect delays”.


Reflect and review. A time to reevaluate.

Repeat the mantra #Love Trumps Hate!


Respect dues; reward achievements. Capricorn, no need to boast.

Regulate. Rethink your media. Reschedule your socialite posts.


Reconsider out-of-the-blue offers. A time to rebuild, a time to restructure.

Re-breathe Zen peace before blood veins pump volume; erupt, rupture!


Re-practice the yogic poses: be rooted like tree; soar like eagle.

Re-plant the soil; re-dig with toil. Reawaken Earth; resonate “Spiegel und spiegel”.


Rework the meaning; recheck the context.

Reallocate resources. Re-prioritise tasks to be done. Next!


Relish, revel in some happier memories; retrospective reprise, melodic Bowie tunes.

Review the scoop-y scopes. Recast the Tarot. Re-alphabetize the whispering runes.


[Refrain] Oh Mercury! Cosmic master; heavenly mistress of duality.

Re-blurring lines. Breaking bad boundaries; satyr-izing virtual reality.


Alas, Shakespeare-like, the simplest messages/emoticons; so easily misconstrued.

Resist re-tweeting those (ugh) graphic, lurid texts. Reclassify them ASAP into “category lewd”.


Mercury retrograde Capricorn:

Reuniting intergalactic rogue one renegades.

Re-honouring (s)heroes, overdue victory parades.


Review the Akhasic records; hypnotic, past life regressions

Mysterious Mercury meetup with plutocratic Capricorn.

We don’t need another global recession!


Reunions of snakes! Families and bands. Reformation of future election rolls?

Misinformation at election booths? Shame on you, mercurial trickster polls!


Recondition the air-con; retrofit the in-car audio.

Renovate the retro; reupholster the analog(ue) radio.


Re-invest in renewables. Return on investments; timely deliverables.

Re-vitalize gig economies. Readjust household budgets, post-Brexit inflation.

Recount revenue receipts. Pay dues for sustainable landfill reclamation.

Reverse engineer Reaganomics; re-engineer Mother Earth’s regeneration.


Rescind injustices! Restore equitable, fair justice!!

#Reform. Gun.Law. Review knife. crime. Stat!


Rehabilitate repeat offenders; reject costly recidivism.

Revoke the death penalty. Release all falsely imprisoned.


Reassemble recluses; recalcitrant refuseniks.

Reiterate. Repeat. Refine, sweet reet petite.


Mercury retrograde Capricorn:

Steadfast, sure-footed; heavenly-laden, Bethlehem donkey.

Reliable, dependable; unlike a bunch of capricious monkeys!


Go slow and steady like the Kashmir mountain-goat.

Rewrite your bucket list; redraft on whatever medium floats your boat.


Forget your brand of retribution; serving icy-cold revenge.

Reflect on compassion; resurrect forgiveness; make relationship amends.


Relinquish control. Surrender for post-Truth era


Resubmit your movie short. Reenter the Sundance dalliance.


Alas, constant daily horrors; senseless global terrors

could render humanity to feel forlorn.


“Review your personal cyber-security!”

Re-instructs “El Capitain” as Mercury retrogrades Capricorn.
