When people say Mercury is in Retrograde everyone somehow panics. I guess maybe I have too. I’ve seen the glitches and issues it has created.
Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun, has almost no atmosphere. It’s atmosphere is rather dusty, kinda like they say the moon is. The planet was named for the Roman god Mercury, a winged messenger, it travels around the Sun faster than any other planet. Mercury is difficult to see from Earth mercury was named after the famous astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, for all his years of research and observation, never once was able to see Mercury. That’s kinda sad, seeing he did so much research on this Planet.
Sometimes the other planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. They call this illusion retrograde motion.
When Mercury goes Retrograde you can expect mass mis-communication between people. You may notice that things are misspoken. You yourself may not hear things correctly. So, be aware.
It’s been said that if a baby is born during a retrograde they do not tend to feel the affects of it. Those born during a retrograde show a tendency to thrive, do far better and even be creative.
For the rest of us we need to be mindful.
Outrageous driving habits. ( more than usual )
Computer problems and breakdowns. ( I’ve experienced many of those during a retrograde)
Mail or even e mails maybe slower than usual.
Double check any directions you give or get! they maybe wrong.
Cell or home phones may die or act funny.
Because Mercury is the planet of communication this is why we can be so affected. It’s not because it’s out to get us or decided to appear going backwards to cause issues. Mercury is known for communication just like Venus is known for love.
You can do and expect many positive things.
Some people will show back up in your life. Be cautious that you want them or not.
You can re- organize and reflect. Do things that are positive.
Make your life and this world a better place. Good to do anytime, right?
This will start 10-4 through the 26th. Just remember like a pregnancy you have the two weeks before, which we are in now and the shadow of two weeks after.This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged astrology, astronomy, electronics, Mercury retrograde, planets, signs on September 24, 2014 by Michelle Caporale.
