What happens when Mercury prepares to go retrograde in a day's time? Well, I just received 20 blank emails for one thing, and didn't receive a whole bunch of other emails that have been sent to me! Mercury loves a bit of computer/technology shenanigans. When you put him in Aquarius, which a) governs technology and b) is ruled by Uranus the planet who loves all things unpredictable, don't be surprised if things like this are happening!
If you are expecting an email or text and you don't receive it - follow
up with the person. Likewise if you send something important and don't
hear back, follow up.
On the upside, Mercury retrograde
periods are fantastic for going back over things that have been left
unfinished - contracts, communications, conversations and projects. They
open doorways for things that need re-doing and re-viewing. Something
or someone from the past can come up for the purpose of finishing
unfinished business or re-connecting in a new way.
Retrograde gets a bad rap but as much as he can be a bit of a trickster
with communications, ultimately his job is to ensure that everything is
as clear as possible. He says: re-negotiate that contract, re-do that
piece of writing, renew that connection, re-visit that project, re-visit
Has Mercury Retro paid you a visit yet?
