Mercury Retrograde
BEFORE Mercury stations Retrograde is the ideal time to finish projects that involve communication and close big deals. Ordering and purchasing, especially for business, can be continually problematic if purchases are initiated during Mercury Retrograde. Letters can get lost in the mail, machinery can break down, computers can go haywire; connections don’t always work. Mercury Retrograde is not an aspect you’ll want in the chart of a new venture unless you thrive on ongoing stress or if you’re starting a repair business or anything that is recurring. Take care of external communications — that’s what can get dysfunctional and problematic. Problems that come up are not usually not enough stop you from making progress. It’s just that there can be annoying little unexpected and unplanned-for buggy things with the potential to delay progress and otherwise try to trip your switches.

Mercury the trickster, however, has a dual nature. During retrograde periods, while there are problems with external communications, the inner communications part works better. Use this time profitably to get in touch with yourself. Analyze the information you’ve already collected, re-think and evaluate plans before jumping to action, meet with old friends. The extent to which this retrograde affects you personally depends on how significant Mercury is in your birthchart and on its current transits to planets and points in your chart.
