Hello our Fabulous Friends,
Just when we thought we were done with the January Mercury Retrograde debacle, Aprils is now upon us. For our friends who are not familiar with Mercury Retrograde and when it occurs, let us fill you in. Several times a year the other planets, such as Mercury appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion. This affects everyone and is traditionally associated with confusions, delay, and frustration.
In 2016, Mercury will be retrograde during:
January 5 to 25
April 28 to May 22
August 30 to September 22
December 19 to 31
I’m sure if you think back to last year’s Mercury Retrograde you will remember having issues with your e-mails, internet and/or the way those around you interpreted your words. It wasn’t you or something you did, it was Mercury Retrograde!!!! So even if it’s a relief to know it wasn’t us personally it doesn’t help the matter but there are ways to smooth the affects of it.
Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry since the planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts and trust. However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.
This is the part where someone tells you there is a “magic kit” that prevents Mercury retrograde from knocking on your door for a low price of $49.99! But alas we are not those kinds of witches. No kit or spell to make it go away but you can use oils, herbs, stones and crystals to help meditate and relax during this time. Of course we have those for sale. :-0 Use coupon code (MERCURY) to save 10% off your order. Click here to see our monthly specials.
