Mercury Retrograde

Sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂 

When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to, and do as many things as possible that have the letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdecorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, and if you don’t, ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be RE-done at a later date
  • Mercury is in the sign of Libra during this retrograde motion… Life area’s involving relationships, partnerships and spending money may need to be adjusted. Be patient in your relationships, don’t jump to conclusions, but don’t compromise so much that you lose a part of yourself… leave sensitive topics until after October 22nd if possible. 


  • When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.
  • Mercury entered its “storm” on September 20th {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on September 26/27 @ 10:10 pm (PT) @ 1:10 am (ET):
  • Mercury turns direct on October 18 @11:17 am (ET) @ 8:17 am (PT)
  • Mercury is clear of its storm October 22: {look over any notes that you made earlier, and see what makes sense now}
