Mercury is retrograde,
appearing to move backward, about 3 times a year. Mercury retrograde
times call for you to recheck everything, anticipate and plan
ahead, and to relearn lessons unlearned since the last Mercury
retrograde cycle. It is a good time for review and completing
ongoing projects. It is NOT a time to start something new. Mercury
energies involve the mind, mental processes, communication, travel,
speaking, and writing. The Retrograde symbol is "Rx",
the same symbol on all medical prescriptions! Physicians until
the 15th century had to also be astrologers before they could
practice medicine. Plan ahead for these times. So you can do preventive

delayed, misinterpreted, blocked. Recheck everything like appointment
times, spelling, wording, the words you say.
· Anticipate detours - memory lapses, confusion, failing

reservations that suddenly become "missing", transportation
difficulties of all kinds.
· Expect problems with messages, books, letters, magazines,
documents, neighbors and the near environment.
· BACK up your computer files! This is the time the screen
goes blank and there is nothing there!
· Expect the phone lines, cable lines, power lines to have
keyword here is "re-" redo, relearn, rethink, review,
rewrite, remake, rediscover, reboot, you get the idea...
