Mercury in retrograde

Have you felt that things weren’t quite right recently? Communication is off with your loved ones, that check hasn’t came in the mail, your thoughts aren’t really clear? What does that mean? Mercury is in retrograde. In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray or awry. It is therefore not wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is very likely that these decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual, as the critical faculties are dimmed. Make sure you pay attention to the small print! Mercury's retro phase tends to bring unforeseen changes and blockages, but the aggravation and frustration that many of us experience during these periods is often due to our own inability to roll with the punches. Is this due to our ego-fixation? Mercury sets out to restructure our thinking processes and for many of us this is painful and frustrating. Moreover, these experiences reveal flaws in our internal organization as well as our external planning, which can make us feel foolish and inadequate.

I know alot of you are skeptical about this but think about it. It began on 1/11. How have things been in your life since then? I know personally, this explains alot. Thank God it will be over by Valentine's Day because life can get really exhausting during this time. Just be patient. Its going to happen 3 times this year, which means you're gonna have to take the trials you are going thru with a grain of salt. This too shall pass.

Um.... Mercury is a ball of rock and gas tens of millions of miles away from us, and it has no effect at all on us!

Say what you will my English friend but not only has my employers site Divorce360 been having problems, our phones at work were down all day. Why? Because Caltrans cut the wires on accident. You should really open your mind a bit, its not always black and white. Mercury is in retrograde, that effects everyone.
