Retrograde Mercury strikes again on June 7, 2014, the 2nd of the year. It begins in Water sign Cancer – emotions, family, friends, the past. Then on 6/17, the planet backs into the Air sign it rules, Gemini, until 7/1 when Mercury, planet of communication, short trips, siblings, goes Direct. We can deal, we can handle, we will survive it! Again.
Can you imagine any communication snafus occurring between you and family members during the 3 weeks of the retrograde? Of course you can – so, the cautions are the same as always during a backward Mercury. Watch what you say or write. Be clear and precise, try not to leave room for mis interpretation. Hurt feelings, confusion can really be done without, especially with those closest to you. Keep things simple and uncomplicated as you live your life (it never stops regardless of whether a planet goes backward or forward). Complications and “hot messes” can arise all by themselves.
However, life is still great. We can get thru just as we’ve done in the past – prepare and pay attention. Back up your stuff. Get your facts, along with your ducks, in a row – verify, verify, verify. Use Retrograde time to do “re” things – review, reread, re evaluate, regroup, re charge.
