When the trickster planet moves backward, watch out!

Mercury Retrograde

What's the big deal?

Because Mercury is the planet representing communication and motion, when it goes retrograde there is a sense that movement-based things -- such as communication, travel, traffic or business negotiations -- are interrupted and slowed. Cars break down, calls get missed, people say the wrong things at the wrong time. Energetically, it can feel as though the universe is blocking your efforts at progress.


How to beat Mercury Retrograde

You can't demand life to flow more smoothly during Mercury Retrograde. Double-check your work beforehand, set plans in advance and be willing to repeat yourself. Mercury Retrograde is a reminder that we're not as almighty as we think; peaceful surrender is the best weapon against Mercury Retrograde. Go with the flow and take each challenge as an opportunity to meditate on the unpredictability of life.
