This time around, I feel like I am Mercury – moving backwards


Mercury Retrograde can really suck sometimes. Appointments get missed, major mess-ups in text messages and emails, electronic malfunctions, banking errors, the list can go on and on.

Mercury, the planet of communication does this thing – where it appears to be going backwards from down here on Earth. It’s actually just slowing down, but from down here, it looks like it’s going backwards. This happens 3-4 times a year, for a period of about 3 weeks each time. There is also a halo period – in which the beginnings of communication haywire can be felt.

Up until recently, I swore that Mercury Retrograde happened to me – as if all communications from people, institutions and the like – were all making my life difficult. But not for this Mercury Retrograde. I feel like this one – I am Mercury. I am the one moving so slow, that my words don’t sound like words. I’m messing up with scheduling – double booking appointments, while some others don’t even make it to my calendar. It’s nice to have someone else to blame for everything going wrong during this crazy 3 – week period. But when it’s you that is reeking havoc in your own life and you don’t even realize you’re doing it until it’s too late – it becomes quite comical.

I mean, if you can’t laugh at yourself, then who will – right?

So I’ll just keep on chuckling as a bumble my way through the next two weeks, and know that all will return to normal soon enough.

Here’s a handy-dandy guide for 2015:
