When a planet goes retrograde, this motion makes it appear to be going backwards in the night sky. Mercury does this three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time. Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all business operations, formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth. Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get screwed up, scrambled, crash or spin out of control into a total technological meltdown. During this period we tend to experience more shakeups, mishaps, errors, stress, anger, frustration, bad luck, delays and difficulties with travel, issues with cell phones, emails, text messages, computers and electronic equipment, writer's block, mental or verbal confusion, communication problems of all kinds, contract and legal difficulties, and relationship misunderstandings. It can be a troubling time of complete chaos.
Astrologers guard against signing any contacts, making any important decisions or starting anything new during this period. The good news is that Mercury retrograde allows us to stop, look, listen, and redirect our energies more productively and provides us with lots of beautiful opportunities to tie up loose ends, and finish projects that we have been putting off. Mercury retrograde wants us to move back spiritually. It is providing us with a chance to re-examine various areas of our life which may need a little more work, so that we can move forward to a bright new dawn. Now, more than ever, the time is right to look at things with clear eyes. Delicious, fresh perspectives are revealed. We often have major intellectual, emotional or spiritual breakthroughs during this time.
