My Mercury Rx So Far (Inspiration for Writers?)



hey everybody this is Adrian of the band ring so I want to get over here to talk about my mercury in retrograde so far I'm not gonna do too much of an intro I'm just gonna jump right into it and hopefully this is serves as some type of inspiration for writers or creators people in general but especially writers and creators so if you guys don't know we are looking I'm sorry I'm always looking at my dog in these videos now she's looking at me but anyway so right now mercury is in retrograde there are a few other planets in retrograde as well so I'm not an astrologist so I'm not gonna sit here and like go through the ins and outs of all that I have pretty basic knowledge of retrogrades and what it means but I do know or have noticed that whenever retrogrades come around that we kind of go into panic mode it starts to freak out like you know you know don't do this don't do that this is gonna happen this is that's gonna happen in all that and and in some ways that I mean it's true that I think it does really have an effect on certain things that happen in the world for example like people always say mercury in retrograde has an effect on technology or communication as well as technology Twitter is down at this very moment this very moment that I'm recording this and I think mercury went into retrograde a few days ago but was it not like a week or two weeks ago when Facebook and Twitter and not Twitter Facebook Instagram whatsapp and a few other apps were down so I definitely think there's something planetary or that the planets do have an effect on that so anyway anyway I want to talk about how mercury in retrograde has been for me I want to talk about the positive side of it so as much as we talk about you know things that could go bad there are pretty good astrologers that I follow who talked about the positive the good how you can make use of Mercury retrograde and the thing that I see the most often with a common theme is reflection and self reflection shadow work relaxing so for me a two years ago I wrote a script like a whole short script I wrote it July August 2017 so my grandpa my mom's stepdad had just passed away in April like late April so this screenplay kind of came out of trying to deal with that I wrote it in summertime it's a Christmas script I love Christmas even you know I'm just really one of those nerdy people when it comes to Christmas like I'm ready to decorate I'm playing the music and you know ready to bake the cookies and all that stuff I'm that person so Christmas is a happy place for me so I started writing this Christmas story in August one of the first screenplays that I've like actually sat down and worked and worked on until it was done it's so hard for me to do that and I think a lot of writers could attest that yes I wrote the script and submitted it to a screenwriting competition that I had been eyeing for a very long time so I submitted it I'm all excited I kept reading it over and editing yeah you know doing the edits and all that stuff got other people are really even though only like one or two people responded to me but um so yeah I don't know why I felt the need to throw that jab in there so anyway so I wrote wrote the script I submitted it and the feedback came February 2018 like I just went back and checked the email and I got a really good marks on it you know a really really good on criticism feedback for it like my score was like nine out of ten or something like that but the the one the main criticism that the judge had for it was just like you know that the ending is a little anticlimactic you know like the the protagonist kind of falls into the background of her own story like you know try to add this in or try to do this and do that so if you know me personally you know me for the rest of y'all out there if you're familiar with the straws and birth trust and everything Capricorn son Aries moon Taurus rising if you want to throw Venus in Venus and Sagittarius I'm like all horns all horns when it comes up like I'm very shy and reserved and laid-back but when it comes to a lot of things I'm just like so I read this like like I said really good response really good feedback to my screenplay but that one line was just like I'm like okay yeah like I I personally like the way that I entered this script so I'm not changing the Indian I'm not changing anything about it actually I actually really enjoyed this script I think I did a good job so you know you know that's just how I felt about it so a whole more than a year went by before I even picked that screw up again when I picked it up is on this electronic didn't go to the file to edit it the PDF copy that assumes that I never looked at never looked at it and it wasn't because I convinced myself that it was perfect and didn't need anything changed but I didn't the truth was I knew it wasn't perfect now I I had an inkling that it wasn't imperfect and it still is that it wasn't perfect and I didn't want to face that and I didn't want to go through that and look at cuz there cuz you know now it's like I've got this one thing that I need to look at me being myself I've got to look at every single thing every other thing that I think is wrong I'm probably gonna see mistakes that I didn't catch him for a whole year more than a year went by since I got that feedback and I literally just opened that script for the first time in a year over a year this week this weekend see I can't remember when I when I went to it but it was I had reached a point I mind you – I don't think Mercury retrograde until this week or this weekend I can't remember but I I kind of went to all of this before mercury in retrograde but you know we had all that other planetary stuff going on it's still going on so anyway I I written I was in this period of healing shadow work self reflection engine you know you start hearing things just like our agent you gotta start getting back to what you do you know this other stuff that you're doing is fine you know you're still doing your work it's summertime I work in the school system and so you know we're out of school but I still have to do work and it's just like yeah you're doing all this stuff but you're you're putting what you really should be doing on the background of stuff I went on I wrote one screenplay short script about five five seven pages I came from how long it was wrote it felt very proud of myself was ready to you know that's like okay what's next what can I work on next and I just kept feeling and hearing this energy of that's that's that's a good script but that's not the one that's not the one you need to be working on I already knew what it was but I still didn't want to look at it so finally I just got over myself and I opened this script I opened it up I read over it and I'm just like okay how can I change this how can I fix this and I'm not quite ready to talk about the script yet so so I I wanted to say what inspired me so so what I added into the story was something related to a birthmark a scar something somebody ashamed of I don't have any birthmarks scars that I'm ashamed of but I had this this on my arm so and I got another one somewhere so I kind of looked like looked at my arm just like maybe I could you know do something about a birthmark whatever so I added this whole different dimension and and it completely completely changed my character pretty much I worked on it I think I've worked finished it into now mind you it took me a year to do something that could have been done in two days like that's how long it took me was about two days to go through this whole script make revisions like actual grammatical punctuation fixes and all of that and then change different elements of the story and I'm not gonna say like oh my god I felt so elated and relieved like oh I finally got it done and once I did it things start changing and all that but I can feel that happening I do feel like a you know the feeling of a weight being lifted and it so I went to the the website of the the competition that I submitted it for last the last time the first time well okay well let me see when the next date is coming up to submit before this thing you know I'm thinking oh it's probably past because cuz I got the feedback in February so yeah so I look the first day to submit short scripts is in August and then I was just like okay yeah that's actually right I think that's about the time that I submitted it you know in the fall or something so I was just kind of amazed at the timing so I said all that to say fellow writers fellow creators I do think that this retrograde is the time to go back and fix some some some old stories to revisit something that you've written in that you've kind of put to the side for whatever reason I think this is based on my own experience I think this is the perfect time to go back and revisit it revisit that not only for the sake of you know writing but for yourself because in doing so there cuz again remember I wrote this scream the script from a dark place from a from I don't say a dark place I was it you know a sad place it was a different place so I think that was a part of because I'm still doing my shadow work in my healing and so I think it's miniscule as it seemed to me as small as it seemed to me okay this is just a scrip that I wrote it's like a little short script it had become a part of me because it came out of me because it came out of my mind cuz came from whoever spirit and everything it wasn't just a screenplay it was a part of me and it was a part of something that I needed to go back in hill because it was written out of hurt i i took the feedback forward out of her even though I wouldn't tell myself that I was hurt by the feedback but I mean a year before you go look back at a screenplay because uh I got it like I said I got like a nine out of ten from my score like that's like a a a – it was something probably anger and and like I mean as much that's all my stuff like okay like you know whatever I was I'm still gonna submit it to somebody else like I actually was hurt that somebody dare tell me that my precious screenplay was it perfect so writers creatives people in general this is just a front again from my personal experience this I don't think this is the time to go back and start talking to old people like old exes and all stuff you know this but a lot of talk about that those major things I you know I'm not gonna tell you what to do like I said I'm not an astrologer but those small things that make make you those small hurts those wounds I do think this is a time to like relax and chill and excuse me and then think about those things and do do do the little bit of work that you have to do to to to fix to adjust the bigger picture because it's like like I said right now I'm not feeling like this great monumental change in my life because I edited that script but because I have a greater knowledge just a general knowledge you know why just being older or whatever I know that in me going back and doing and fixing that that I know that something is going to change I know that there's a shift that's about to happen because because in a way I went back in time she's not changed if you know what I'm trying to say like you know I didn't add an astral projector anything like they don't do any past life regression or anything but I I fixed something that has long been it's like when you go to the dock like you've had this pain in your body for like years and years and years and you've well not years and years and years but you know a couple of years and you just was sitting like oh it's fine it's fine it's fine you finally go to the doctor and it's just like oh it's just this you should have came in around this time and we would have got it done and so it's like now you got it done and you know the pain is slowly going away because it's so old but you feel it going away and you feel yourself you can see yourself ready to do things that you stopped doing or that you stopped and join because of you know whatever it was so again I hope that was helpful I hope this was like a sign or message for somebody in particular again not exclusive to people who write or create or draw and all of that but it is kind of I do think this is like a creative – creative type of message that I want to put out there so hope y'all enjoyed it I hope it resonate I hope I didn't ramble too much but whatever anyway so I'll see y'all soon I am still gonna do those sexual energy readings I just gotta get my mouth stuff together really quick stuff catch y'all another time
