Mercury, the planet that helps us manage communication, travel, electronics, traffic and your basic, everyday thinking, will appear to be moving backwards for its retrograde period. Beginning on December 26 and going right through January 15, 2010, the retrograde period will be working its magic and playing its mischief in your life. Because Mercury will be in Capricorn during this period, getting things accomplished could be a lot more challenging than usual.
Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray or awry.
It is not exactly wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is likely that such decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual, as the critical faculties are dimmed. Make sure you pay attention to the small print!
Have a beautiful New Year with peace, light and love to fill your everyday!
