What do I mean, you ask? Cars break down, computer crash, traffic jams, power outages, software glitches, telephone static, lost letters – well you get the picture, right. Mercury, the trickster God, ups his pranking again. In fact, at least three times a year for about three weeks each time Mercury has his way with us.
If you keep an eye on the heavens you know that the planets travel through the zodiac and Mercury (visible just before sunrise or just after sunset) moves forward most of the time, but three – four times a year, if you watch carefully, Mercury appears to go backwards for about three weeks! It's an optical illusion based on the movements/orbits of Earth and Mercury.
The general side effect of Mercury in Retrograde is annoyance – the little things (involving communication, technology, or travel) get snarled up beyond belief and frustration emerges swamping everything in its path and this in turn leads to a colossal screw up.
The key point here is that with small amount foresight & planning you could possibly prevent major screw ups.
• Do not start a legal case (or it could become cursed like my divorce was)
• Finish all communication based projects prior to
• Do not sign legal documents
• Avoid launching new projects during the retrograde
• Avoid making big decisions
• Allow extra time during travel
Now I’m sure there are some good things about Retrograde but I can’t thank of any right now.
