Being informed of potential problems and
delays in some but not only matters of: money, love,
family, business, job, making major dicisions help you to
change the date, think twice and allow you to research and
make wiser decisions before you sign that contract, accept
the job, make that important business trip, or say "YES"
to "Will you Marry Me."
From April 18 - May 11, the planet of delay in
communications, information errors, missed and mixed
messages, advertising, business purchases, meetings,
signing contracts and making contracts become delayed,
misread, have to be redone, problems related to these
situations can result in confused feelings, and even court
and legal issues related to important documents signed or
mistakes that have to be rectified during this Mercury
Retrograde period from April 18 - May 11, 2010. If you are
going for a job application, promises made during this
time may be broken. Contracts and even marriage proposals
which are agreed upon may have problems, such as the date
of marriage keeps getting changed or the proposal and
marriage is off. It is not a good time to propose or
commit to any kind of business, money, family connected,
or emotional committment. Major purchases such as cars and
computers are likely more during this retrograde period to
have to be returned because of faulty mechanical issues.
Think twice before you speak and take the time to do
mental and spring house cleaning, keeping your mind in
neutral until this period is over.

This is an important period, and we should be aware of the
effects associated with this astrological influence. Since it is
so often, we must learn what it means and how to take advantage of
There is no real backwards movement of Mercury; it's just that
we see it this way from Earth, because of the combined movement of
the Earth and Mercury around the Sun. However, astrologically this
is very relevant.
General influence of Mercury retrograde
Mercury rules over the mind's processes, studying,
communication, businesses, travels and the like. When Mercury
reverses its direction, all these areas are affected as well.
The mind turns naturally inwards and people tend to analyze
more the own thoughts and follow the common thinking patterns,
rather then be curious and eager of new intellectual experiences
or challenges. This helps the meditation or the thorough lonely
long-term study of a specific matter, but it affects the study of
new subjects, the communication with the others, the attention
Businesses, travels and communications tend to experience
delays and different problems. Computers and other processes that
work with information may experience crashes, unexpected failures.
Don't enroll to courses, don't buy expensive Mercurian items
(books, cars, mobile phones etc.), don't sign important contracts
and do not marry.
What is this Mercury retrograde period good
It is definitely a very good period for some actions. No time
is completely bad for anything, there is a reason in everything
The key is the reversed direction of movement: take any known
Mercurian action, reverse its flow, consider the keywords
"re-doing something", "double-checking", "finish the old projects"
and there you are, you've found the good side of Mercury
For instance, you may want to read again a book you
particularly liked, a subject you studied before, meet and discuss
with old friends you haven't met for a long time, travel to places
you've already been to before.
This is an excellent time to work on old projects that never
got to be finished. So, think about the things you started and
Next, you might wish to prevent any bad things to happen to
you: so double-check your agenda, call your business partners to
confirm that everything goes as planned, have everything ready
before the deadline and leave some extra time for unexpected
events. Make copies of your important files and documents, save
your work more often.
The other solution is to go on vacation or at least slow down
the pace of your projects. You will find that going slowly during
the Mercury retrograde period will spare you many efforts of
redoing the same action that wasn't performed right the first
Above all, be generous and compassionate: you are already aware
about the influence of this period, but the others aren't aware of
it or there may be uncontrollable events. That's why you should
have more diligence with the others and give them some more time.
It'll be your mental health that you'll be sparing actually.

When you have Mercury retrograde and
getting the eclipses, negative transits are the triggers which can be
ignited very easily. It would be great to be able to change the stars and
planets in your chart and predict a
better outcome, but remember that you've seen the potential of the future,
and if don't take action which can make the things come about, you can
avert the prediction and in the end, have this relationship the way you
It's not able manipulation of the stars,
because they are bigger than us ;), but it's about seeing the whole
picture of what may come about and figuring a good strategy to help avoid
the potential pitfalls which are predicted with astrology, which is not
carved in stone. Any astrologer or psychic who predicts without a doubt
about the future, is not using his or her talents, because our free will
is more powerful than you think.
I've given predictions, as my father has
(he was very intuitive), and the people with whom I've tried to warn about
things just ignored the message, and it happened anyway. It is suggested
to you to not take any or all aggressive action or communications about
issues in a relationship, because there is a tendency for it to add fuel
to the fire...the potential fire...of your relationship not culminating
into a commitment.
Mercury retrograde is the time when people from the past come
into your life, but do so in a temporary way. It's a time when you can
review your life and it will assist you for the future, because you can do
mental housecleaning. I've been removing a lot of paperwork from business
connections and clients as far back as 1997, so I can concentrate on the
present and the future once Mercury goes direct at the end of the month.
also a good time to revise papers, make corrections and double check for
typos or documents which may have been sent in error or are incomplete.
Usually, appointments are cancelled, changed, or items you are waiting for
via mail, now email as well, come to you late. My printer's gone on
the blink, the bank has made several errors in my account, and we're
waiting for some important documents which are late. I was aware
that these things may occur, so all I can do is hang on to the rope
through the stormy sea so I don't fall off the boat and when Mercury goes
direct, I can once again operate through the more calm sea. Rocking
the boat during this time or creating situations which may have
repercussions for you in the future just doesn't make sense.
The science of astrology is the casting, creating or calculating the
planets in our universe and the art of it is interpreting what is there
with the motive that you are trying to obtain the best outcome of the
situation at hand. It's not fortune-telling, but it gives the forecast in
an objective way so that you can take time to view what may be ahead and
then plan your actions which will help you with the most positive result,
based on your wants, needs, desires, and wishes.
If you own a computer, beware. Also, don't
even think about buying a computer or major item during this
period. You may end up having to either reorder, send it back, or find
out that it wasn't what you had in mind. It's a time to review,
clean out your paperwork, closet, or anything which needs to be redone,
such as redoing the bedroom, attic, etc. Just pay attention to
anything you sign during this period. What is astrologically
deemed to be a Mercury retrograde event is that what you begin during
this time might end up coming back to haunt you or even be finished
during this time. You also may get a telephone call, email, letter
or visit from someone from your past. This may be an
opportune time to contact someone from your past with whom you have to
finish something up with or with whom you feel you need to retry
something with him or her. Get the idea?
A romantic relationship which is formed during
this time may have false starts. If you receive a marriage
proposal during this time, what comes to my mind is "What was he or
she thinking?" Just be very careful of how you reply. It
would be a good idea to wait until the retrograde period is over before
you give your answer.
Mercury retrograde represents the "re" words.
It's now 10:10 AM, on the 8th of November, 2000. Florida
is in a state of confusion. What has occurred in the last 12 hours, when
the planet of the mind, Mercury, makes a stationary position in our
heavens? Mercury represents all forms of communications, including voting
ballots, since it is a form of communicating. So are letters, legal
Yesterday, the media posted that Gore won the votes in
Florida. This was retracted and Florida was up for grabs.
The media rushed to judgment.
It was then announced early this morning that Bush had most
of the votes. He was now declared the winner.
Gore makes a telephone call to concede and congratulate Bush. Soon
after this message, Gore recalled Bush to rescind and retract
his concession congratulations, because there had been news that there were not
only absent votes which weren't counted, but that some of the voting boxes
had been misplaced. (I wonder if Gore should have put them in
his "lock-box"). I wonder if Gore will have to re-concede
when all is said and done.
The state of Florida now has to recount the votes as
well as wait for the absent votes to come in.
Many voters in Palm Beach county felt that the ballot was
misleading and poorly marked. Approximately 3400 people thought they
were voting for Gore, and accidentally marked a vote for Pat Buchanan.
What are the true returns? Do you think that there will
be a recount for the residents of Palm Beach county? Although
Mercury's movement moved forward yesterday, there can still be uncertainty,
confusion, a mis-reading of documents and statements, and where Florida is
concerned, this election process may not be totally over for another week or
Could this result in one of
the most presidential electoral mistakes in history?
Gore is presently ahead in the popular votes, but as of this
moment, still behind in Florida. We have to wait until Thursday, the 9th,
for the final results to come in. And then, who knows if it will still be
over? After all, many people will be rehashing this situation over and
How will Palm Beach county's votes affect the final
outcome? Are there enough votes to give Gore the 25 electoral votes, the
win in Florida, and finally, the presidency?
In addition, officials in Missouri had gone to court to extend
the hours of voting. This also was overturned, or retracted, by a
Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, as a
rule, but the effects of each period differ, according to
the sign in which it happens.
planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through
the zodiac. This traditional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion
created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in
our solar system. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just
seem that way, due to this illusion.
periods, although often problematic for us earthlings, are not particularly
uncommon. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon.

As a rule, retrograde planets presage a period of seemingly
inevitable or fated events, which relate to their sphere of influence. They
present us with a series of events over which we seem to have little or no
control, relating especially to the sign in which the retrogradation occurs. For
example, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio presents quite different sets of
circumstances from those generated when it retrogrades into Libra.
retrograde period is best seen as a cycle, beginning when the planet begins to
slow to a halt before travelling backwards through the zodiac and ending when
the planet returns to the point where it first paused. However, during the
cycle, the planet's energy is most powerful (and more likely to generate
critical events of universal importance) when the planet makes a station,
appearing motionless in the sky. These stationary periods occur at the beginning
of the cycle (when the planet first halts as it prepares to move backwards) and
midway through the cycle when the retrograde planet slows to a stop before
moving forward again.
What does Mercury affect?
In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception,
processing and disseminating information and all means of communication,
commerce and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in
these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers
and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, tricksters and
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,
When Mercury is
retrograde, everyone's thinking is more introspective
and we tend to think about issues and concerns which
relate to the sign involved.
