Mercury Goes Retrograde

The master of communications goes retrograde today. This flighty little planet will have quite an impact on those of us trying to get our lives organised – expect letters to go astray, miscommunications and misunderstandings when it comes to contracts, financial and legal dealings.

Check, double check and triple check when you need to, and be sure to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. Leave no stone unturned if you want to avoid any irritations or delays.

Mercury goes retrograde a lot – four times this year, so we should all be used to the little games that he plays, yet at the same time we are often thrown into a state of disarray when things don’t go quite as planned.

There is a strong need to be both pragmatic and philosophical over the next few weeks. Maybe, just maybe Mercury is being our best friend by causing well-timed delays to allow us a little more thinking time?

It is all too easy to get caught up in the usual feelings that it is best to keep one’s head down whilst Mercury is retrograde, but with Pluto soon moving direct, it is clear that keeping one’s head down is not really an option – it is time to stand up and be counted now.

So by taking a more philosophical approach to obstacles and hiccups, hopefully we can each reach the end of this month stronger than ever before…

Mercury will be retrograde from the 7th to the 28th September
