Meaning: Mercury Retrograde
- The meaning of Mercury retrograde is easy to understand if you think in terms of
Mercury's symbolism. The "winged messenger" rules:
- ALL electronic equipment from TV's to I-Phones. Now is not the time to switch from cable to satellite or vice versa. . .
- All Computers and Software. Now is NOT the time to install / upgrade software
- and the written word.
Mercury represents the power of the mind.
It is the trickster god because the mind is the slayer of the real! You know how hard it is to keep your mind on one thing. That is Mercury at work. Mercury likes to flip the channels so to speak!
When this planet goes retrograde it's as if:
- someone is pulling the plug at random moments;
- stealing the remote and demanding that you unplug!
- Of course we don't like to unplug.
- We like to keep on keeping on and get where we are going, no matter what !
The general Mercury retrograde story goes like this:
- When Mercury is retrograde it's easy to miss the details;
- to misunderstand what was said;
- to misread what was written;
- to get the dates wrong
- or to forget to show up.
This is why the common advise is to:
- refrain from signing contracts,
- making major commitments
- or undertaking major new endeavors.
Still, life must go on,
- contracts must be signed,
- houses bought,
- marriages (heaven fore bid!) made;
- babies born and so forth.
and some really funny stories if we keep our sense of humor.
On Global Level What Could This Mean:

In Day to Day Life:

- Stop all practical jokes. Will NOT be well received. The ol’ backfire
- Start ZERO arguments even with Yourself.. .. .. . .
- Stop need for “Last Word”
- If you do find yourself in argument, and you feel it gets out of hand, Leave the space.
- Be Very Alert while Driving. If you think full moon driving is crazy, just wait for 5 planets in Scorpio. Everyone will think they are Mario Andretti. Suggest avoiding Expressway's.
- Probably more local street / gang violence. Probably more SWAT activity – which now-a-days, SWAT is out allot here in ABQ.
- Be Alert & Cautious around all people who have a quick temper. Now would be the wrong time to suggest Anger Management.
- Be Careful In Kitchen. You, Children, House Mates. Be ALERT while Cooking - esp., sharp knife chopping veggies; pots of boiling water. Rule - no heated discussion in Kitchen either. Not even jesty heated. Don’t talk politics either. People can get seriously hurt in Kitchen so Respect that the Kitchen Is the Most Nurturing Place in the Home because this is where we prepare our food.
