Mercury Retrograde Is Here
From my research, the five days before and after Mercury goes retrograde (in this case Sunday, February 16 at 13 degrees Pisces) and the five days before and after Mercury goes direct (Monday, March 09 at 28 degrees Aquarius) seem to be the most significant days for Mercury retrograde periods.
Unfortunately, many people believe that when Mercury is retrograde, everything is supposed to go wrong. Still, many successful organizations, companies, corporations, and individuals have Mercury retrograde in their horoscopes.
Also, too many people blame Mercury being retrograde for their problems and mishaps when, in fact, more significant astrological factors are contributing to their difficulties, such as Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto making challenging aspects to essential points in their horoscope.
Furthermore, Mercury retrograde periods are favorable for inward-oriented activities such as reflection, reviewing, and meditation. So, when Mercury is retrograde, it’s good to allow more time for writing, editing, researching, and problem-solving.
However, with Mercury retrograde, there can be significant shifts with your plans, and you need to be more careful with decisions because there are more “mess-ups” and complications than usual.
With Mercury ruling thoughts and communication, there is more likely to be mental lapses and mistakes, misunderstandings, false assumptions, missed appointments, lost checks, written typos, and cancellations and postponements. When you travel, for example, you are more likely to encounter longer delays, misplaced luggage, lost hotel room keys, unforeseen detours, and inaccurate directions.
Most important is that the decisions you make and the plans you start with Mercury retrograde are more likely to take a twist and be seen in a different light when unforeseen assumptions and mistakes "come to light” after Mercury goes direct.
