Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde operates on several levels. Some things are pretty generic -- based on what Mercury itself means and what retrograde motion indicates. Other factors give more details and sharpen the focus so you don't have to be completely inclusive and "all over the map" to see what it describes.

In what sign (or signs) does the retrograde happen? Signs have definite interests and include definite life concerns. Currently, Mercury will retrograde through the early degrees of Leo back into the late degrees of Cancer. Leo is about self-promotion. So, expect to change the way you present your ideas. You'll adjust your advertising.

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury has turned retrograde in Leo. It will travel back into Cancer on July 18, turn direct again on July 31 and return to Leo (direct) on August 11, It will affect the areas of life covered by 24° Cancer to 4° in your Natal Chart, Where are those?

Mercury "goes retrograde" about three times a year and remains so for three and a half weeks. It retrogrades more often than any other planet, but stays that way for a shorter time. Theoretically, I suppose it balances out. In real life, it doesn't seem that way.

Thoughts on Mercury Retrograde

Mercury turns retrograde again this evening for the second time this year. The first was in March. The next will be in November. This one will last until very late on the last day of July. There's lots of ways to look at Mercury retrograde. Some people consider it a grim practical joke dreamed up by the Cosmos to deliberately wreck their lives for 3 - 6 weeks. I used to be one of them, but I've mellowed.

Still, I note carefully when it's going to happen. I make sure my computer files are backed up -- and the site. And I don't plan to launch anything new during this window. Mercury Rx is a time to rethink ideas, plans, means of communicating, transportation, travel plans and the like. Use it as a time to review, reconsider, re-evaluate ... and make different choices. See if that makes life easier for you, too.
