Mercury Retrograde: Enjoy The Mischief!
by Cindy Morris

6 May through 30 May - Mercury goes retrograde( looks like it’s going backward from our viewpoint on Planet Earth) 3 or 4 times a year for three weeks at a time.

Generally speaking Mercury retrograde is known to bring a time where things just seem to go wrong. Mercury, the fleet-footed mischief maker of the zodiac likes to make sure that you are not TOO attached to any plans and that maybe, just maybe, things are working out in ways other than what you had expected, for reasons you might never understand! Prepare for any number of communication glitches from missed appointments to emails sent you didn’t mean to send (oops!) to phone calls cutting off right at the crucial time (oops again!). Avoid signing any contracts during these next three weeks but if you have to, scrutinize the fine points. Try not to purchase any electronic or appliance type devices (especially a car!) and if you do, save the receipt. You might very well be returning it.

Mercury starts this retrograde cycle in Gemini, cueing us to rethink plans and ideas to keep them more aligned with what feels right and true on our journey. Itapostrophes like re-thinking the route you will take to get to your destination because youapostrophere looking at the map in a new way, seeing roads that might be a better choice, better scenery if thatapostrophes what you like, or a more efficient path, if thatapostrophes your preference. The core issue is to get at what would work for you and re-align to fit that!

Then when Mercury falls back into Taurus you get to re-evaluate your values. What is important to you? What are your finances looking like? What is the best way to manage them? What are your priorities? Will you forego dinner to get a manicure. Will dinner take priority, no matter what?

The 3-way conjunction of Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter will twice be squared by fleet-footed Mercury. Be open to new people to do business (or pleasure) with and new ways to do it. These new alliances could lead to some profound healing for you. Maybe just letting someone help is just the profound healing you need.

When Mercury is retrograde magic is afoot so loosen the reigns a little and let the magic flow!

30 May through 14 June Mercury catches up with where he was at the beginning of the retrograde cycle.
