This is a time to CHILL OUT! Don’t, I repeat DON’T make any important moves when Mercury is in retrograde. Why? The planet appears to be moving backwards but it’s not. The way it’s orbiting the Earth gives the illusion of slowing down and going backwards. Astrologically the planet is resting. (this goes for any planet in retrograde) So things won’t function normally than when the planet is awake.
Mercury rules all communication, travel & technology. So launching a new website or advertisement isn’t idea. Signing big contracts, purchasing electronics, having surgery, traveling & starting new endeavors are also some things you should avoid if you can.
Strange things can happen as well. Like misunderstandings that can lead to arguments. Reconnecting with old friends can be good. People from the past tend to reappear. Unexpected text from your ex can happen. Computers tend to crash. All to much right?
People are thinking much slower, even you during this time. Judgement is off. This is a time of “RE”. Re-thinking, re-organizing, re-doing, re-vamping, repeating yourself can be idea at this time too. Think of how things are going now. Consider Mercury retrograde as like a “review period”. This is a good time to complete unfinished business. Before starting new ones AFTER retrograde.
Quick Retrograde Tips:
Back up your computer or cell phone
Expect traffic or delays, so pack a book or catch up on some Netflix shows
Read all texts/email before you send
Get your vehicle tuned up or checked out
Expect people from your past to appear, including your ex
Don’t jump to conclusions if someone misunderstands you
Don’t make BIG decisions
