UNDERSTANDING MERURY RETROGRADE

Three times a year, the planet Mercury  appears as if it is traveling backwards. We refer to these periods as times when Mercury is in retrograde motion, or simply “Mercury retrograde.” These times in particular were traditionally associated with confusions, delay, and frustration. Think email blunders and frazzled travel plans.

However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. It’s said that intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO WHEN MERCURY IS RETROGRADE

The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts, automobiles, and such.

So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Double check your email responses, check in with reservations before you take that trip.
