Update: It’s here!
It’s that time again, folks…Mercury is going retrograde from October 21 – November 10, 2013. Please be mindful of the standard Mercury Rx precautions: anything revisited, or with “re” in front of it is workable.
New projects, new starts? Not so much! And for God’s sakes, don’t sign contracts or long-term leases during this time if you can help it. They will have to be redone.
Mercury is in Scorpio for this go round, so look to the items being revisited to potentially be deep, dark and very mysterious. Whatever you got going during this retrograde, I’m thinking it probably won’t be trivial. Check the house in your natal chart to review what sphere of your life will likely be most impacted.
Being rather Virgo, I often sweat the Mercury retrogrades but I’m very comfortable with the Mercury/Pluto mixes, so I’m not going to worry about this. If you like your communication and thinking deep and real, any questionable rot will out itself during this period. So be it!
How do you feel about Mercury retrogrades?
Incidentally, I’m feeling pretty good about this Rx period overall. But as I mentioned, I like Merc/Scorpio contact and deep, serious thinking. By keeping my focus on cleaning up stuff that needs to be cleaned up (and making sure taking my time doing it), it’s started out on a pretty good note for me. I have gotten a lot done today, oddly enough!
