Using the Synodic Cycle of Mercury as an Effective Timing Tool, with Brian Clark

Mercury’s thoroughfare through the heavens forms an extraordinary cycle with the Sun. In this presentation, Brian considers Mercury’s synodic cycle as a timing technique for writing a thesis, organizing a road trip, preparing an event, planning the next semester of teaching, researching a presentation, and many other Mercurial projects. Being the god of the roads, we will focus on Mercury as a guide, using its planetary course through the heavens to inspire us to take into account the phases it forms, its retrograde periods, its rising and setting, and its conjunctions. These phases create the unfolding of its cycle which occurs three times a year.
