Mercury Retrograde

Today is a blessing. Mercury will no longer be in Retrograde!! This means deals will finally close and buyers and seller will return to their normal selves. Your computer will quit crashing and making funny noises and you will no longer be late to appointments.

Mercury, sending communications, travel, appointments, and mechanical things into a general snarlup! This awkward period begins a few days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until April 12, when the Winged Messenger reached his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.
Everything finally straightens out on May 1, 2005, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, as a rule, but the effects of each period differ, according to the sign in which it happens.

Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, tricksters and thieves. (Miami had a huge string of robberies yesterday)

Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry.

The next one is not until July 22 - August 15.

ahhhh we will all be normal again for a while.
