A Scene From Mercury

Mercury Travel

No need to blame it on the rain, your boyfriend or your boss –  its the planet Mercury.  What we mean is, if you feel like things get tad bit strange, or difficult rather, there is often a scientific explaintation – the  phenomenon known as Mercury Retrograde and it occurs three times each year, so check your dates because for about three weeks time, Mercury travels in reverse motion against the backdrop of stars.  Experts say that during this time communciation – in all various ways including technological and verbal – can become confused and unclear, cause delays and changes, extremists will not sign contracts during this time or even travel, they say to use this time for researching, strategizing or solving problems. Written and verbal contracts signed during this time are often cause of confusion later and it is not a good time to buy electronics, including cars and computers.

So what is best to do during those times? Edit, rewrite, rework, reevaluate and reconsider, or stick to cleaning – just be patient and take time to triple check work, but hold off on final decisions until Mercury goes direct.

Mercury in this orbit does allows us to look into the future toward new and innovative ideas, bring ideas back into the present to test and evaluate to see how they fit into our life, once retrograde ends we are able to put our new ideas into manifestation.  As Mercury retrogrades back into the present, the connection with the Sun happens as we then can test drive our ideas and re-align with reality and the natural timing of the universe!
