Mercury Retrograde

Three or four times a year the planet Mercury goes retrograde and during that time there seems to be much more chaos than usual in our lives and in the world around us.  Even people who don't follow the movement of the planets notice when Mercury turns around.  Mercury is the planet that rules (and therefore affects) your car, email, your cell phone. communication, your bills, etc. During Mercury Retrograde there are disturbances in the normal flow of things which can cause great stress...or we can use Mercury Retrograde to our benefit.

The basic principle of Mercury Retrograde is that Mercury has turned around to show us something we have missed. There is something in our lives that we skipped or ignored; car maintenance, backing up the computer, paying a bill, contacting someone important, and Mercury is here to show us that we need to pay attention to that thing right now. We can reduce stress during Mercury Retrograde by actively seeking out and finishing those things that are undone.

Mercury Retrograde also causes things to repeat. So if you had a lot of dental work on the last Mercury Retrograde, you may find yourself in the dentist chair again. If you get one speeding ticket during Mercury Retrograde watch out, because you may end up with two. But with all of this adversity there is a gift. Because Mercury Retrograde is likely to cause things to repeat, just do things that you don't mind repeating. Buy jewelry and furniture, go dancing or to a play, even consider a vacation (just make sure your luggage has your name on it, because while you are on your way to Hawaii your bags are probably going to Baltimore).

And finally, the best possible use of Mercury Retrograde is to treat yourself the best you can for those three weeks. Eat your veggies, exercise, be nice to yourself. And not only will you feel better right away but the on next Mercury Retrograde you will feel compelled to return to that healthy living. Is that a good deal or what.
