Many have asked me what it means when we go into mercury retrograde, so I thought I would tell you what I know and have experienced. Technically, when Mercury goes retro that means that the actual planet rotation spins backwards, hence retrograde. So, what does that mean for you? this planet governs anything mechanical and all communication and travel and when in retrograde it means that all of these things are more susceptible to going wrong. Cars breaking down, printers acting possessed, emails not finding their mailboxes, contacts not containing what you need them to. It can be a huge mess.
Best way to get through it: be proactive and aware. simple but true. Make sure your car is up to speed, so to speak. don’t sign anything unless you go through it with a fine tooth comb, and still expect things to not go totally smooth. Example: We have an a/c unit we put in during mercury retrograde 6 months ago. Still having issues every time we run it! There is a leak here, the dogs chewed through something so it has to be replaced, etc. you get the picture.
So, if you can wait on the contract or getting that new job, please do. The only loopholes are if you were already in negotiations before mercury went out of wack or the one you go into business with you have known in the past. Make sure you have plenty of printer ink on hand and you have paid the cable bill.
What do you do for the 30 days or so that mercury is retro? This is the time you want to purge, declutter, prepare, and get your ducks in a row so you can hit the ground running when things shift back. plan, organize, and be ready to set things in motion. You & your life will be all the better for it!
