Mercury Direct

Mercury has turned direct after about three weeks in retrograde. (Of course when you add in the shadow phases before & after each formal retrograde period, we wind up dealing with this guy's little cosmic calypso for about two months every time. No wonder it seems like this mess hangs around forever. Mercury retrogrades 3 - 4 times every year -- so ... you do the math.)

However, Mercury turning direct marks another important milestone in the progress of Mercury's journey around the Zodiac. Finally, we can start "believing in communication again" -- & travel. Mercury, you know, rules both. So when he decides to do his little coy retreat / backtracking trick, both of those areas of life get messed up.

So, breathe a sigh of relief. Anticipate some certainty & make some choices you can really count on for a while. (Waiting until Mercury has cleared his own shadow, even though he has turned direct -- passes the degree at which he began to retrograde -- is your safest bet for anything really important ... but if you're feeling lucky, go for it. There's at least a better chance now it'll fly.

Mercury retrograde is a time of coping with communication problems, technical mishaps -- especially with electronics, issues that mess up contracts & agreements, transportation troubles & delays. Those should stop making so much news now, but there are always plenty of examples to point to when Mercury is retrograde.

While Mercury actually moves back over ground he's already traveled & one of these stories comes up (which I count on), I ask The Weasel (Our Beloved Webmaster), "Have I mentioned that Mercury is retrograde?" He answers, "A time or two." It substitutes for "I told you so," in our private conversations. Always a satisfying moment.

This is a standard length sample of this feature.
