Feeling brain dead? Lost in communication? Internet slows as hell? Calm down, it’s just mercury retrograde and it’s happening RIGHT NOW!
What is mercury retrograde?
It is when the planet mercury stops moving-literally stands still- while the rest of planets are still moving, and from the “earth” point of view mercury is going backwards. Therefore, we called it mercury retrograde.
How does it relate to us?
Mercury represents the messenger who is always on the go, carrying communication, transportation, technology and brain activity. So when mercury stops, the idea stops, communication breaks, logical mind shuts down. Basically when mercury stops, everything I listed above stops or stumbles.
This naughty planet stops for a month-long vacation about 3 or 4 times a year and that’s when each one of us get into a “brain-dead-zone.”
*It is definitely NOT a good time to sign a document or start a new project because your brain isn’t working right. UNLESS, you take your time and be very patient and observant, or you’ll probably miss something and screw up.
Look at the bright side!
Don’t be paranoid because it is a great time to re-think, re-do, re-check and relax, as well as an AMAZING TIME for picking up unfinished business.
I think it’s useful to understand mercury retrograde so there will be no surprise when your mail gets lost or you get caught up with old things or people.
