No, I haven’t lost my grip. Instead of bemoaning Monday’s arrival of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini, the Air sign it rules, as the potential snafu of all time, I’m changing my approach. I will look on the good side. Rather than rushing, yelling and screaming, to my computer to “back it up” before the sky falls, I will make good use of whatever positive energy the universe will provide during the communication planet’s backward sojourn thru the heavens.
This Mercury Retrograde can offer us the opportunity to re visit any abandoned conversations – “let’s discuss this at a better time”, (never happened) or writings (any “Thank You” notes pending?). Re evaluate those unfinished brainstorming lists, middle of the night “great” ideas, etc. Re think the language of any future speeches or pitches – is it clear, to the point, got substance?
However, with combative Mars transiting the clever, chatty 3rd sign 0f the Zodiac until 6/24/15, we still need to be alert. No need to foster confusion and mischief just because of not paying attention. Watch what you say, watch what you write. Double check directions, be prepared for transportation delays. Don’t sign any contracts unless absolutely necessary and not until its read very carefully. And finally, YES – back up your tech stuff! ASAP!
BTW: Mercury just “appears” to go backwards. Planets only move forward, however, due to the earth’s changing speed as it orbits around the Sun, the positions are such that it looks like a reverse motion from earth.
