The Power of One on the Many,
There are many people who don’t quite understand what Mercury retrogrades are about, but they know enough to be wary. Mercury rules publishing, communications of all types, mechanics, electronics, commerce, and just about everything that keeps the Earth machine moving. When Mercury retrogrades about three to four times a year for about three weeks each time, it’s basically taking a break. Therefore all it rules seems to go unchecked, unsupervised and thereby unpredictable. Mistakes will be made, words can be misconstrued, and mechanical items can break down.
Give Mercury Retrograde Space
Another important thing to note about Mercury retrogrades is to give them space—about three to four days at the beginning and end of its transit. For instance, Mercury is set to retrograde between April 9 through May 3, so you may feel its effects starting as soon as April 5 and as late as May 7. It will begin its retrograde phase in the sign of Taurus and then move backwards into Aries on the 20th of May.
Here’s What Everyone Should Avoid
Avoid buying big-ticket items and purchases of anything electrical or mechanical. If possible, avoid signing contracts or entering into agreements, as they will likely have to be changed later on. Also, if you’re planning a road trip, don’t just “gas-and-go;” check fluids, tire pressure, etc. Travel of all sorts may be delayed, so pack your patience along with your toothbrush. If you live in the U.S., don’t forget to file your taxes and get proof of mailing just to avoid trouble. Double check your facts and figures and proofread written communications such as emails, so they’re clear and concise.
