• Mercury Made Me Do It

It's that time of the year again... good ol' Mercury Retrograde is back.  I didn't remember until yesterday, August 30th, which happened to be the first day of this phase. It came to mind after some major communication breakdown issues earlier that day.  I thought to myself, "Am I crazy, what the heck is going on?  Why has this conversation been so hard?"  and then I grabbed my phone and did as most people over 40 do and spoke into my phone (its so much easier)  to ask Google a question. "Google, is Mercury in Retrograde right now?"  The answer; In 2016, Mercury will be retrograde during: January 5 to 25. April 28 to May 22. August 30 to September 22.

Great. 

What this means is that several times a year, it appears as if Mercury is going backwards in the Zodiac. This time has been traditionally associated with confusions, delay, and frustration.... it usually lasts about 3 weeks. During which, we get to live among the touches of trouble this time can bring. The planet Mercury rules communication, travel and all things electronic, so its best to remain flexible during this phase and not make any major life decisions.  So, for now, keep the husband, the car and the same haircut.  You'll have until December 19th when the next Retrograde begins to decide if they're keepers!
