Mercury in Retrograde 2018:

Mercury in retrograde, watch communication…

Mercury is in retrograde.

What, you say?

Well, to keep it simple, Mercury is the planet of communication and retrograde means backwards! This wonderful confusing event is happening three times in 2018… as listed above.

What can we do about this disruption of the planet? Plan and be aware. All means of communication – fax, COMPUTERS, telephone and personal – are affected. You plan to meet a friend for lunch and you both go to different restaurants; you tell your hairdresser you want your hair trimmed and he/she gets carried away.

Travel plans need to be reconfirmed and important faxes, EMAILS and letters need to be followed up. Don’t take it for granted your message has arrived intact and clear!
This is not the time to start new ventures or make major purchases such as real estate, cars or computers.

It is, though, an excellent time to finish old projects, as our past will most certainly be “hitting us in the face”. What better time to clear old habits than now. This retrograde is an excellent time to lose weight, quit smoking, end restricting relationships and get on with our lives with a clear direction and intent.

It is important to be aware of changes around us but it is not necessary to overreact and lose our focus just because planets go through their normal processes. Work with this and be ready for the next one… forewarned is an excellent state to be in. Enjoy!
