WHAT IS MERCURY RETROGRADE?


By, ©Harriette Knight

Three or four times a year for three weeks at a time, we often notice that our computers glitch more than usual, our fax machines jam, messages and car keys are lost, and we wonder what is going on here? It is not unusual to run into someone who says, "Oh, Mercury must be retrograde."

What does that mean exactly?

The planet Mercury rules communication,education, contracts, short trips (which includes automobiles and travel schedules), early childhood, siblings, cousins, and neighbors. When Mercury goes retrograde, the planet appears to be going backwards letting us retrace our steps to redo a lesson important for our personal growth.

Many people view a Mercury retrograde as a nuisance, like a gnat that won’t stop buzzing around our heads, but a Mercury retrograde is a wonderful opportunity to redo, redecorate, reorganize, research, read, reunite, reconnect, and restore. Anything with a "re" in it is encouraged. Reunions are wonderful events even if you have to travel to get there.

What to avoid during a Mercury retrograde is anything NEW. It is not a good idea to sign a contract, buy a new house, start a new relationship (unless it is with someone you used to know), open a new business, purchase a new car, or make travel plans. These events are often met with delays or frustrations with houses falling out of escrow, mechanical difficulties with your new Mercedes, or cancelling your trip altogether. Remember that this does not have to be the case for everyone, but as a matter of precaution, it is good to have all the information handy, especially if you don’t like doing things twice.

A dear friend of mine, who happens to be an Astrologer, signed a contract to have a pool installed in her backyard. I was shocked that she didn’t wait until the Mercury retrograde had passed, but there it was... the dye was cast. The pool is gorgeous, and the builder proceeded, but there were revisions in the project which might have been avoided had they waited to start the process until the Mercury retrograde was over.  She writes, "It was a thoroughly enjoyable slow and deliberate process.  If that process is expected, then the period simply represents a necessary and beneficial slowing down to ensure the right outcome."

Another example of how Mercury retrograde can affect us, is when I decided my son was going to go to college in Florida. I had not had that thought until the first day of a Mercury retrograde. Mercury retrograde lasts for 3 weeks at a time, and for three weeks straight I did everything to achieve the goal of my son going to college in Florida. I got his transcripts, applications, letters of recommendations, spoke to Department heads at the colleges, and even arranged for use of my brother’s Florida address. Everything was a go in that direction. The minute Mercury went direct, I woke up and all thoughts of my son going to school in Florida had evaporated! What was I thinking? He proceeded to stay in California as originally planned.

How many times have you met someone and had an intense 3 week romance that seemed to end as quickly as it began? It might’ve been during a Mercury retrograde. However, my guess is that you got to work out something in your relationship arena that previously had been left undone.

Remember that Mercury retrograde is a wonderful time to tie up loose ends, learn a life lesson, clean the garage, research a project, or reconnect with old friends. Though it is not a good time to purchase new telephones or computers, it is often at that exact time, that the old ones break down forcing us to incur a cost we didn’t expect.

I have traveled during many Mercury retrogrades with and without delays, and I even opened a new business during a particular Mercury retrograde in 1995. The business is still in existence today though I am not the current owner, and my memories of those travels are wonderful pieces of the fabric of my life. In fact, one of them, my 20th High School Reunion in 1992 was so profound, I came back and divorced my husband! Talk about tying up loose ends!

During Mercury retrograde, take some time to Relax, Restore, Revitalize, and Reassess where you are in your life and where you are going.  Just don’t forget where you put your keys!

"Fascinating information about Mercury retrograde.  Thank you for sharing that!" Tami Smight

"I have a love/hate relationship with Mercury retrograde, which certainly makes sense now.  This article made me feel better... My husband, Loren, is heading out with his band tomorrow to re-unite with their fans in Europe - perfect!"  Julie Molinare 

"I had a project offer come up on the first day of a Mercury Retrograde. We started pre-production, contacting vendors and such, without a total financial commitment from the client. Sure enough, as soon as the Retrograde ended, the client pulled out and the project was put on hold. I felt all along that would happen given the timing!" Kathi Fastnow Dirkse
