Mercury Retrograde

Well beginning tomorrow Mercury once again goes retrograde. If you don't know what this means or how it affects you... here's the scoop.

When a planet goes retrograde that means it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. This mercury retrograde will last from May 7 - May 31. This typically happens 3 times per year... however this year will have 4 Mercury retrogrades. When this happens it effects communication, transportation and events over which we seem to have little or no control. The effects of retrograde begin to be felt a few days before the actual reverse movement begins while the planet appears stationary.... and continues for several days afterwards while the planet again appears stationary before returning to a direct movement. Keep in mind that the planet is not actually moving in reverse... it just appears that way from our perspective in the solar system.

Mercury retrograde causes personal misunderstandings..... disrupted, flawed or misunderstood communications.... break downs and mishaps with phones, computers, cars (any mode of communication or transportation). It's not wise to make important decisions at this time because they will most likely be clouded by misinformation or miscommunication. This mercury retrograde occurs with Mercury in the sign of Gemini which is also a sign of communication and the mind as well.... so thinking will be more introspective... and communication will probably be even more affected. I really dread Mercury retrograde... it can wreak such havoc. So be mindful that you may be misunderstood.... or misunderstand communications more so at this time... and be more careful while you are driving... if there is something you've been meaning to fix on your car that could be dangerous now is the time to get it looked at just to be on the safe side.... and be more mindful of what others are doing on the road.

For more detailed information on Mercury retrograde... and this one in particular you can visit there is a lot of info there.

So every one buckle up.... and let's all get through this as unscathed as possible!
