Mercury Retrograde Alert - Jan 11th ~ Feb 1st 2009
Mercury, planet of communication, information and eduction is about to go Retrograde from Sunday, Jan 11 until Feb 1, 2009, going back over what began around Dec 27th. What a way to begin the year!
I strongly recommend that you prepare for Mercury Retrograde and that’s why I’m giving you the “heads up” now. This is the time to take care of business or to begin anything that you’re planning to initiate if you possibly can. All you have to do is take one small action to start a new project - and because Saturn is going retrograde on Dec 31st, you need to take an action before then.
When Mercury goes retrograde, pursuing new business or initiating new activities is ill-advised unless you’ve already taken some act ion prior to the retrograde. During Mercury Retrograde all forms of communication are susceptible to disruption so information that is transmitted in any way (by fax, computer, phone, Blackberry, iPhone, FedEx, verbally) will be at the mercy of Mercury Retrograde. This can manifest as lost information, miscommunication misunderstandings, contracts that don’t stick, lost or delayed mail, equipment malfunctions, and snafus in general.
The guidance to prepare for Mercury retrograde is to back up your info, make copies of important documents, sign contacts, send important emails, finalize instructions and if you have planned to begin anything new, take an action before the retrograde goes into effect. And please don’t make any major purchases during Mercury retrograde (especially electronic equipment or appliances), as it’s common for something to be wrong with either the item or the transaction. Also, Mercury rules ground transportation so be sure your vehicle is in good working order and double-check travel plans and directions.
When we get closer to Mercury Retrograde I will give you suggestions about how to work with this energy to maximize its usefulness in your life. It is so much easier to be “in the flow” when you are aligned with the cycles of the Universe! Read my blog @ Soul Level Solutions
