Retrograde Mercury

by | Astrology & Numerology

Planet Mercury, the Closest Planet to the Sun, goes Retrograde every 88 days. Retrograde in a sense, Mercury’s path around the Sun travels behind the Earth’s path based on a comparison of Mercury’s elliptical path to Earth’s path.

When Planet Mercury goes retrograde, certain things happen in your daily life. Since Mercury is the planet of communication, you may see a delay in messages, missed communications, appointments missed or reschedule, lost emails, misunderstandings between individuals, a variety of mishaps relating to communications. Also, anything pertaining to communications may break, such as computers, trouble with cell phones, software updates, televisions, and other communication devices. Also, in general, things break down, need repair or disruption in your everyday life/work routine.

When something breaks during Retrograde Mercury, fix it immediately during Retrograde Mercury. You will be guided to get the best permanent fix. NEVER start anything new during Retrograde Mercury; if you have never had a previous notion of doing so, don’t do it during Retrograde Mercury.

For instance, never buy something during Retrograde Mercury if you have no prior intention to buy the item. If you do purchase something without a previous purpose, it will not last. It will break, will not work, and eventually, it will be a lemon. This includes buying stocks or commodities. No matter how good of a deal it is. I have challenge Retrograde Mercury several times only to lose. Never do anything on a whim during Retrograde Mercury.

Now, on the other hand, Retrograde Mercury is the BEST time to complete something. If you had a previous notion of buying something, it is a great time to complete a transaction if you had an idea to do so previously before Mercury went Retrograde. I used to plan vacations previous to Retrograde Mercury to be completed during Retrograde Mercury, and they turned out to be the best vacations.

So, planning to do something before Mercury goes into Retrograde and knowing it will be completed during Retrograde Mercury will guarantee success, completing a previous intention. If I were searching for something, I would find it during Retrograde Mercury.

This includes dating, looking for a job, renting an apartment, buying a home, car – NOTHING NEW during Retrograde Mercury unless you had a previous intention. Retrograde Mercury might also be involved in revisiting something that may not be working in your life. Maybe a conversation needs to occur, or you reconsider something that is not working perfectly in your life.
