It’s Mercury Retrograde, Again!


Mercury Retrograde!! Heads up! Wait… Heads down??? You definitely may feel like you want to hide under your desk at work…. OR stay in bed all day. 

Anyways, Let us get to the dirty dirty. What is Mercury Retrograde???? Well.. Sometimes the other planets seem to be traveling backwards through the zodiac.. However. This is just an illusion. “Retrograde illusion”. Our planets are constantly swinging around like crazy.. Their movements tend to affect us in all different ways. But Mercury’s journey definitely seems to impact us all MUCH more. What Mercury does to us.. is blindsighting.

Why???? First of all. Mercury rules communication, clear thinking, truth and travel!!!! YES, believe it or not. Mercury rules A LOT. Pretty badass hey? So when retrograde happens…. Things get seriously ugly and everything seems to get all tangled up in a horrible mess. And everyone and everything seems to be like it is in war!! QUICK, grab your shields. 😉
Soooo check out these dates. These are 2017 Mercury Retrograde dates.
Dec 19, 2016 to Jan 8, 2017 earth-sign Capricorn, to fire-sign Sagittarius

August 12 – Sept 5, 2017 in earth-sign Virgo, ends in fire-sign Leo
December 3 – December 22, 2017 in fire-sign Sagittarius
Yay… Taurus and Aries. Lol. NOW. DO NOT take these dates to heart. You can start feeling the craziness a few days before and after. Sigh. It is honestly good to know these dates, and know about Mercury Retrograde because you can increase your productivity and hopefully avoid at least some of the frustration retrograde brings about.
Sooooo. I have a survival guide here for you lovely souls on how to get through the craziness.
1. DO NOT MAKE ANY MOVES. Nothing will be settled successfully.
2. Try to avoid any important decision making. It seems like people cannot make a firm decision during this time and then often…. this decision unfolds soon after retrograde anyways.
3. For business people. This is a poor time to launch any new campaigns. Wait until after retrograde for success and happiness of this campaign.
4. This is not a good time to sign any contracts or to even shake hands on agreements. No leases and do not close on a house.
5. No plastic surgery or elective surgery. If it is an emergency, you will be fine. But if you are choosing the date for any plastic/elective choose the date out of retrograde.
6. TRY not to take things personally. This can be super hard during this time.
7. Do not purchase any big ticket items.
8. Take things with a grain of salt. ( We should do this everyday… but more so during this time )
9. FINISH things you started awhile go. This increases productivity time and will hopefully keep you somewhat clear of all the mess.
10. Read any small print on things carefully and double check everything esp travel arrangements.
11. Allow Mercury to nudge you in unusual directions. Look at what the universe is trying to show you. EVEN though this is a crazy time… it is also a good time to learn and reflect. Re examine, accept and move on!!
