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
Oh good grief. Another one? Already? And relationships? Gah. I'm not ready!more

Mercury Retrograde, 5/18/15 – YAY! !

No, I haven’t lost my grip. Instead of bemoaning Monday’s arrival of Mercury Retrograde, in Gemini, the Air sign it rules, as the  potential snafu of all time, I’m changing my approach. I will look on the good side. Rather than rushing, yelling and screaming, to my computer to “back it up” before the sky falls, I will make good use of whatever positive energy the universe will provide during the communication planet’s backward sojourn thru the heavens....more

It happened in 2000 (remember those "hanging chads"?) and it happens again on Tuesday, November 6. Mercury goes “backward” on the day we vote.

Hang On To Your Hats! Mercury Is In Retrograde!

Heads Up !  – As of Saturday at 10:16PM (EST) Mercury will be in its notorious Retrograde cycle.  Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, manual dexterity, appears to move backward in the sky 3 times a year in different signs.
