Mercury Retrograde - What It means for You

Hello Everyone,

I get a lot of questions on Mercury Retrograde. Since mercury is retrograde now, I thought it would be a good time to post this article.

Dictionary meanings of Retrograde:

1. Moving backward; having a backward motion or direction; retiring or retreating.

2. Inverse of reverse, as order.

3. Exhibiting degeneration or deterioration.

4. a) Moving in an orbit in the direction opposite to that of the earth in its revolution around the sun. b) appearing to move on the celestial sphere in the direction opposite to the natural order of the signs of the zodiac, or from east to west.

5. To move or go backward; retire or retreat.

6. To decline to a worse condition; degenerate.

When Mercury is in retrograde things seem to get confused and don't work or go well for you. The telephone can break down, letters can be lost for weeks, you could sign a document and the information could be misplaced. When typing then the work may give incorrect information. Timing can seem to be off, like short trips can seem to be difficult or we leave the directions at home.

It is important to remember that when you are planning to do something in retrograde make sure that it is something that you don't mind doing twice.

DO NOT: Don't start anything new. Don't buy anything electrical or mechanical.

DO: Return things you have purchased. Repair things that have broken. It's a wonderful time to study, research or take a class. If you go some place during this time you will return. Take time to reflect what has happened to you over the past three months. Take it all in and learn from it.

It's a time to 're': Reschedule, Repair, Return, Rewrite, Redecorate, Restore, Replace, Renovate, Renew, Research, Remodel, Remember, Relocate, Release, Relax, Return, Re-examine, Reject, Rejoice, Rejoin, Rejuvenate, Relate, Reassemble, Reattempt, Reawaken, Rebalance, Rebuild, Recede, Recall, Recovery, Recuperate, Recycle, Rebound, Redeem, Reframe, Refurbish, Remote, Renewal, Reorganise, Renounce, Replenish, Respect, Resolve, Resource, Respire (simply breathe), Retreat, Revise, Revive, Revel.

I hope that this has been helpful to you as it comes from me with much love and encouragement. If you have any comments on this or anything else then please leave a comment by going to -
