A little something I found in the Farmer's Almanac "Extra" June 2019 edition -

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE

Sometimes the other planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion. Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. Howev-er, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.When Mercury is retrograde, re-main flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions. In 2019 to come, Mercury will be retrograde during July 7–August 2, and October 31–November 20.–Celeste Longacre

this Retrograde seems to really be messing with electronics... seems everyone I know has lost a computer or some other sort of technology.

My first was 8lbs, 12 ozs. 14 is a lot but think of it this way - they will be much healthier and will likely spend less time in the hospital because they do weigh a bit more.

Her c-section is scheduled for Aug 24th; thank you for asking. The eclipse had no effect. Both her twins are measuring close to 7 lbs....that's almost 14 lbs. of baby in her. Poor girl emoticon

Here we are in another Mercury Retrograde and this one seems "less wired", if you know what I mean. My oldest daughter is pregnant with twins and her c-section is scheduled for August 24th. I'm curious as to whether the eclipse might start labor for her.

Hello Jetta,

Mercury, the planet of forward motion is now retrograde until June 11th. Mercury retrograde gets a fair amount of 'bad press', but I want to support you with quality information on what is good and positive about this time period. You deserve the best!

During this retrograde, especially since it's in Gemini, you'll likely have a tendency to rely on your logical mind; but things go haywire when reason takes a back seat to the unconscious.

You may feel confused and even unhappy because you're wasting time, but really, if you look past the frustration of things not always working as usual, this Mercury retrograde is exquisitely valuable.

One of the secrets to success lays in recognition and appreciation of Mercury's role in mythology. Ancient Mercury was the magical traveler between worlds. Mercury alone was able to transcend the high and low worlds, to travel between the spiritual and the mundane.

With Mercury now in retreat, traveling backwards, it's a rich time to go deeply into your subconscious mind. The ancient Hawaiian tradition of Huna teaches that it is the subconscious mind that has direct communication with the Higher Self.


Utilize this time period to get more deeply acquainted with all parts of you. It is through wholeness that you activate your ability to transcend time and space.

Fertilize Your Magical Garden
Greet this Mercury Retrograde with vigor and vitality. Like a gardener tending a plot of fertile ground, dig into your soul and see what grows:

Clean up lifestyle habits - weed out the bad ones; initiate and sustain the good ones.

Dig out old problems - it's time to get a new perspective on issues that keep reappearing.

Plant seeds for emotional healing - connect with your inner self and your higher Mind.

Store up what you have nurtured in your life - reconnect with friends; find lost objects.

Reconcile the past - forgive yourself and others for the seeds that did not grow.

Grow in sustenance and personal liberation -as you connect with your inner power.

Monitor the flow of your words - get a handle on self-talk, and fertilize your affirmations.

Affirm signs of life - you'll see when the connection has been made with your subconscious.
Bask in the sunshine - as Synchronicities show up and enrich your days.

With full forward appreciation for all of YOU -

Maya White

Mercury will be retrograde from May 18th until June 11th. During this time, you may feel that your logical mind is out of synch with the pace of every day life. This one will be more confusing than usual because Mercury is in Gemini, one of the signs of his rulership.

Both Gemini and Mercury rule transportation and communication. With this double impact, expect delays in travel, missed connections, and technology breakdowns.

Because it's in Gemini, this Mercury Retrograde will actually facilitate communication with your subconscious mind. Remember the subconscious communicates through pictures and sensations.

Get to know your inner self even better during this time period

Thanks Jetta (and Claire) for this really great info....How long can I hold off from doing something about my (2nd hand) camera? DH is saying he is gonna take it to a camera shop to try & get it working (for free!) for me, it's been a nightmare so far. It's fairly new, but was in storage while the owner came back from overseas & I have paid out money to get the things that were missing in the box, like an adapter for the plug....and a new SIM card, and etc....but still it doesn't work....sigh, I am now wondering if I bought it DURING a Mercury Rx...lol...quelle horreur!!
I started to do copy/paste to save to Word, then realised how much info there was...lol...cost a bomb in ink & paper...haha...(kidding)...so I stopped.
I send you all Peace, Love and Joy, my dears...I Love you so much...In Oneness & Light...Sylvia xx emoticon

Good for you Claire

This is from a friend...

Monday 5/18/15 Mercury retrograde alert. In less than two weeks Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini, a sign he rules. Will this upcoming Merc Rx be more intense than normal as a result, or easier to manage? That depends upon what one does to preview and preset the interval. Time to get uber organized. Diminish fragmenting activities. Consolidate creative post it notes. Get all your electronic memos in one place, on all gadgets, then multiply the back up protocols. Remember everything and watch how your mind translates your thoughts through your mouth.

I've been watching the Mercury retrogrades for a few years and can confirm the following - back up computers/electronics before a retrograde period and don't buy anything new in the way of something with electronics. The DH thinks I'm a little odd when I say we can't buy something for the girls between certain dates, especially if it's around Christmas time, but he doesn't argue about it and I usually find a better price too.

Thank You Kathi, I love the information below!

The Dos & Don'ts Of Surviving Mercury Retrograde

Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop, or station, and spin backward — otherwise known as retrograde. Of course, it really ISN'T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that Mercury, is in this case, going backward.

In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology — so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks, with today (Jan. 21) marking the beginning of the chaos.

To top it off, Mercury retrograde also has what's called a "shadow period" so you may have already felt the retrograde a couple weeks before and after it actually happened.

So how NOT to have a nervous breakdown?

Don't start anything new. Review all your contracts before you sign. Renew your commitments, rather than making new ones. Prepare to repeat yourself often. It's like learning a new dance.

Mercury retrograde can crash electronic equipment! Back up your computer, calendar and cell phone address book. Expect delays if traveling, and pack a book to entertain yourself while you wait for that tardy bus or plane. Get in touch with old friends — and don't be surprised if people from your past track you down.

You might even hear from the most RANDOM exes and childhood classmates during retrogrades. Mercury also rules contracts, so think before you ink. Either wrap up important negotiations before the cycle starts, or wait to sign documents until Mercury goes direct.

If you were born during a Mercury retrograde (like we were), you may actually become sharper, clearer or more productive during this time. You won't be immune to Mercury's global impact (we once had a hard drive systematically erase itself right before our eyes), but you could also thrive in areas where others are flailing (almost every big writing contract and book deal we've gotten was offered during Mercury retrograde).

You might even become more psychic or dialed-in during Mercury's backspin.

Here is a list of dos and don'ts for Mercury retrograde:

DO …

1. Review all contracts and legal documents before signing.

2. Pause and breathe before speaking and repeat yourself if necessary!

3. Read all emails and documents before you send.

4. Insure/track important mail and packages, since Mercury rules the postal system.

5. Get your vehicles (or bikes) tuned up and be sure to pack an emergency roadside kit.

6. Leave early for any travel and appointments, since Mercury can delay flights.

7. Renew your commitments instead of making new ones.

8. Focus on the prefix, re — which means to go backward — and renew, review, revamp, redecorate, et al.

9. Plan reunions with old friends & loved ones, but prepare for possible mishaps!

10. Expect to hear from/run into people from your past at the weirdest moments.

11. Get sentimental. Reconnect with your roots and walk down memory lane.

12. Practice forgiveness. Finish processing what's unresolved so you can let it go.

13. Confirm all dates, plans, meetings and appointments.

14. Think of the retrograde as a quarterly review period, a chance to pause and finish what you've started during that timeframe.

15. Back up your digital data (photos, contact lists and files) before the retrograde or ASAP, if it has already begun.

DON'T …

1. Buy new vehicles, electronic equipment or gadgets (unless they come with a good return/repair policy).

2. Sign contracts without a thorough review. Delay until Mercury turns direct if you can.

3. Fly off the handle or jump to conclusions if someone misunderstands you.

4. Run into the arms/bed of an ex without careful screening (Mercury reunions aren't always meant to last).

5. Shoot the messenger if someone from your past comes around.

6. Put anything sketchy into an email or text (you could hit "Reply All" or send to the wrong person!).

7. Leave late for flights or appointments.

8. Start anything new before finishing what's next on the to-do list.

9. Lead people on, give mixed messages, or believe everything you hear (actions speak louder than words).

10. Spread rumors, rant on social media or share unconfirmed information.

11. Turn in sloppy or unchecked work, cut corners, or dash off hasty communications. Inspect to protect!

The silver lining? Mercury retrograde is a great opportunity to handle unfinished business. Most of us start a million things that we don't complete, never realizing how much psychic clutter this creates. The retrograde is a chance to tie up loose ends and create a clear vision for the future. Take advantage of it, and you'll emerge fresh and ready when Mercury goes direct.

Mercury Retrograde Phenomena

The timing of this universe is geared toward the Sun as it moves through the zodiac. Mercury has an orbit that at times gets ahead of the Sun allowing us to look into the future toward new and innovative ideas. However, we cannot continue in that vein until we come back to the present designated by the Sun and put our new ideas into manifestation. During the time that Mercury jumps ahead, we ultimately have to bring the ideas back into the present to test and evaluate to see how they fit into our life. As Mercury retrogrades back into the present, the connection with the Sun happens as we test drive our ideas and re-align with reality and the natural timing of the universe.


Mercury itself rules how we think, we will be adjusting everything related to thoughts, concepts, ideas, and communication, especially how technology and material elements play a part in the physical manifestation of ideas. When Mercury retrogrades, we find that many parts of our life are being revised. Often these revisions can be a surprise or throw us back a step. However, these revisions which occur during a Mercury retrograde, are a "course correction" and provide a stop gap measure until we can review situations. During this time of revision, change is compounded and confusion is created by our reactions to the ever-changing situations. Thus anything started during this time will ultimately be taken back or even revised further, making for a high-frustration time. This will be especially true with changing our minds, reviewing new ideas and our communication being improved and honed so not to be mis-understood.


The best mode to be in during a Mercury retrograde is one of "non-reaction", and with earth signs being impacted, physical environment will be changing continually during a Mercury retrograde. Treat the time period as a time of gathering information, yet because the information will be in constant change it would be like trying to comb your hair in a wind storm. Best to wait until the changes stop before attempting to make things orderly. Therefore, just let the winds of situations blow around you without reacting. Once Mercury turns direct, take a look at the information that is still around at that time and go about putting everything in order, while maintaining the fine art of flexibility.

Mercury Retrograde

What does it mean and how does it impact YOU?

MERCURY RETROGRADE: The purpose of Mercury retrograde is to review and revise our life and our connection with reality.

However, these revisions which occur during a Mercury retrograde, are a "course correction" and provide a stop gap measure until we can review situations. During this time of revision, change is compounded and confusion is created by our reactions to the ever-changing situations. Thus anything started during this time will ultimately be taken back or even revised further, making for a highly frustrating time. This will be especially true with changing our minds, reviewing new ideas and our communication being improved and honed so not to be mis-understood.

The best mode to be in during a Mercury retrograde is one of "non-reaction", and with water signs (retrograding back to air signs) being impacted, emotional and mental concepts (and alignments) will be changing continually during a Mercury retrograde. Treat the time period as a time of gathering information, yet because the information will be in constant change it would be like trying to comb your hair in a wind storm. Best to wait until the changes stop before attempting to make things orderly. Therefore, just let the winds of situations blow around you without reacting. Once Mercury turns direct, take a look at the information that is still around at that time and go about putting everything in order, while maintaining the fine art of flexibility.

Mercury retrogrades have a cycle** in which the retrogrades have an exactness of covering the same signs, the same degrees and approximately on the same calendar days. This exactness is seldom thought about Mercury retrograde, with the seemingly chaotic and confusing situations we experience during the retrogrades. The exact Mercury retrogrades we will experience in 2014 were the exact same signs, same degrees and approximately the same calendar days of 1935. This cycle** is seldom talked about in the astrology world, but is the cause of major course corrections for humanity. We can look back at history of 1935 to see the impact of Mercury retrogrades covering the same time frames, the same signs and the same degrees. We are coming to an important time as was experienced in 1935. Few people are old enough to recount the transition of that time, but it becomes history repeating itself to give us a chance to grow as humanity, as a society and to make a difference. The Planet of Mars also follows this same cycle and the sequence of Mars combining with Mercury's influence of ideas and attitudes and Mars brings these ideas and attitudes into action. The phrase "thoughts become things" certainly brings home the combined energy of these two planetary connections.

To read more; Mercury Retrograde OnLine News is published three times a year, during each Mercury retrograde to provide detailed information as to the impact for each Sun sign, each house that Mercury retrograde impacts during it's visit, and each Personal Year - numerological impact from Mercury's retrograde phase.

The changes that occurred back in the days of 1935 bring us to a time when we are looking at the same issues. These issues are setting the stage for the important Mercury retrograde cycle that is also relevant to similarities in 1935. Uranus was square to Pluto, which occurred at the same time, and which is experienced now in 2013, 2014, and 2015. It is important to understand that the cosmic clock has the timing similarities that we see in the outside world. Few realize the importance of correlating the statistics with events in the outside world to the cosmic clock of the magnetic pull of planetary movements.

In 2015, Mercury retrogrades three times, all in air signs of Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. Our mental capabilities have to quick and spontaneous in order to jump into action. Events in the outside world will be at a very fast pace, so we have to be quick thinking, flexible, and adaptable to grab the opportunities for success this year through harnessing the creative, inventive abilities that reside within our higher mind. We have to revv up our creative connectivity and expand possibilities to think of options, opportunities and to think beyond the status quo box. The inner strength, confidence and intuitive abilities grown during 2014 will begin to be visible as inventions, innovations and creative technologies come into our mind as new concepts and possibilities emerge. 2015 is an EIGHT universal year, requiring that we bring our mental abilities together with our pro-active-oriented, fused together to expand into exciting, fast-paced world of success. Being bold and armed with unique ideas it is time to be resourceful, innovative and inventive. These areas will transitions us into new and different careers, businesses, and technologies that will make remarkable inventions that will transform our world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 2016, Mercury retrogrades four times, all impacting earth signs of Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo and then Capricorn again as the fourth retrograde begins in 2016. Practical and material elements change impacting career, finances and physical environment and well-being. These aspects will be changing as 2016 is universally a NINE year. This represents the end of this nine-year cycle that began in 2008 and has now reach completion. Similar to a Broadway Play, our stage lights begin to dim on the issues that were prominent for this nine-year cycle and the themes reach completion and closure. The people, places and things begin to change and transition us into our new environment preparing us for our next nine-year cycle. The power of transformation is to see that all that has transpired in our lives during this nine-year cycle has brought us to the end of our Spiritual Play for this theme and growth. Now we can take the gift within each of the situations and circumstances and see and appreciate the gifts given to us. As Mercury brings information into our life that transitions each of the core areas, we can begin to transform our life to move into our new directions.

When Mercury is Retrograde

Sometimes the other planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion.

Mercury's retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

When Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.
2015 Retrograde Dates

In 2015, Mercury will be retrograde during:

January 21 – February 11
May 19 – June 11
September 17 – October 9

Mercury and You

The type of influence depends on which of the 12 zodiac signs the planet is in when Mercury goes retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde and the Zodiac Signs

When Mercury is in retrograde, its influence depends on which of the 12 zodiac signs the planet is in when it goes retrograde. Below is a brief look at what to expect.

IN ARIES: Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive,
 impulsive Aries wants to move
 ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised.

IN TAURUS: Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the
mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth.

IN GEMINI: Because Gemini
rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications
 when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect.

IN CANCER: Expect annoyances 
at home with baking, gardening,
 and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly.

IN LEO: Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to
 buy and sell or do any trading.
 Instead, analyze your investment
 portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates.

IN VIRGO: Challenging situations arise, especially in the 
workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns,
 as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished.

IN LIBRA: Accept your physical
 attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit
 purchases—or risk returning
them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate.

IN SCORPIO: Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware.
 Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive,
and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary.

IN SAGITTARIUS: It is not a time 
to travel, so reschedule or expect
 delays, lines, and lost directions.
 Instead, take care of local affairs.
 Patience and a sense of humor are needed.

IN CAPRICORN: Avoid buying, 
selling, or renting real estate un
der Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect
problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home.

IN AQUARIUS: With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign 
that governs relationships, 
friendships are put at risk. Petty
squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are.

IN PISCES: Foggy thinking,
 daydreams, and escapism are 
the norm; day-to-day realities
 confound otherwise clear heads
when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting.

Mercury comes from the Latin word merx, or mercator, which means merchant. Mercury is the name given by the ancient Romans to the Greek mythological god Hermes.

Mercury is depicted as a male figure having winged sandals and a winged hat, indicating the ability to travel quickly. He was the official messenger of the ancient gods and goddesses and, as such, governed communications.

In 1782, Mercury became the first symbol of the United States' fledgling postal service. Today, he is the recognized as an icon of an international floral delivery service as well as the official symbol of the postal service of Greece.

In astrology, all of the planet’s attributes are rooted in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. In that context, Mercury is the god of travelers, literature, poetry, merchants, and thieves. He is cunning and clever and witty at a moment’s notice. But he is also recognized as a trickster and thief, prone to misbehavior.
