Let Us Prepare – Time For Mercury Retrograde Again, 9/17/15

“People get ready…” Communication planet Mercury will appear to go backwards in the sky on Thursday, September 17, 2015 in relationship focused Libra. The harmony seeking 7th sign of the Zodiac is about partnerships, collaborations, socializing. Don’t be surprised if people from the past - co-workers, lovers, business partners - suddenly pop up to haunt, bite or even please us.Pay attention  to what you write, what you say in order to lessen the possibility of negative impact as you interact with others – slips of the tongue and pen, Freudian or otherwise, can easily occur. Mercury Retrograde is not automatically an event of huge, messy snafus. Back up all the tech stuff, check batteries, be meticulous and be careful. (Jump all over the details.)...more
