Hi Everyone,

As you may know, Mercury is now in Retrograde. When Mercury is Retro, we often experience problems with communications and travel. The effects can even be felt for a few weeks before Mercury goes Retro due to the shadow effect.

I'm wondering if and how you are being affected by this phenomenon. I have been experiencing problems with my computer for several weeks now. During this time it is more important than ever to 'save' files often and do frequent backups.

Are you currently experiencing obstacles associated with Mercury Retrograde? What are they? How are you handling them? Do you have any remedies or tools that you use to deal with these blocks?

I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Blessings,
Donna

I seem to just not be able to communicate. I start to say something and get interupted by boss flakey dude because he ASSUMES he has a clue as to what I am going to say.

By the time he realizes he is wrong and I get my point across, everybody is so confused that my good idea of SAVING time is tossed aside.

Of course now he feels bad and realizes it was a good idea. Oh well, bet when it happens it is HIS idea!

Good grief yes!

Files being lost, miscommunication, computer issues

Lots going on this time around. The best thing to do really is to be aware and be patient. Not an easy task but if you can keep a handle on it things go much smoother

Well Mercury Reto is forcing me to slow down.

Being a Gemini, Mercury is my ruling planet and Communication is my thing. So I can get really frustrated during a Mercury Retro.

I just have to keep reminding myself that this is a time for introspection.

Hang in there everybody.

And please post any tips or remedies that you might have.

Thanks & Blessings,
Donna

lol this may sound really simple and stupid but one year when I was having a LOT Of computer issues during a retro took a piece of paper and drew the symbol for Mercury on it and asked Mercury (the god) for a little help and taped the paper to the computer.

I didnt have any problems the rest of the time so I guess it worked lol

I've been tripping over my own tongue for what seems the last two weeks...very annoying for someone who is fast paced and verbal communication is my best asset seeing as I am in sales. Add that to the double dose of stubborn passion being an aries/taurus cusp and frustration abounds!

yes, yes, yes. Today was a strange day. I had alot of reversals happen in our business, people changing their minds and such. When I ran errands at the bank, I asked one of the tellers if she had experienced a weird day today. Her eyes lit up and she said, YES! Then, explained that no one seemed to know what they wanted today and couldn't make up their minds. I wondered later about that, think it may be a merc thing but maybe in aspect too.

I did have a great communication with my daughter this weekend. She has mercury retrograde by birth and we seem to communicate BEST when mercury is retrograde. She gets more talkative and open during these times.

This has really been a strange mercury transit for me. Things haven't really slowed down a bit (but then, Mars is in my first house by transit right now) but communication is disturbed from its normal flow. Not sure about remedies except patience. Find something you love to do and do it!

Yes, I can feel the mercury Retrograde. I was actually wondering why all of the sudden i felt like no one was listening to me anymore.
After months of real goodwill flow and everyone laughing at jokes I wasn't aware of making - now people can't wait to misunderstand me all of the sudden.
I have not thought of any remedies, except laying low and not talking to much - since I am a big believer in mantras, I will start doing the Ganeysha mantra Ohm Gum Ganeysha yah namaha to see if that helps.
I have mercury exalted in Virgo, second house from my moon, so I am quite the talker - but my libra AC and Venus helps me see that there is times when one can benefit from listening as well. <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I think, if I remember right, the 12th will see mercury direct again. I'm ready.
