Shortly after nine o’clock this morning, Mercury, that capricious planet of communication, roadways, merchants and machinery, stopped its backward motion and began to position itself for forward movement. How do I feel about it? “Oh, thank God!” expresses my feelings adequately.
Though it was a relatively smooth retrograde period for me, (with the exception of the pick-up truck that ran a red light, ripped my car’s front bumper off and spun my car around like an old-fashioned spinning top), I was glad and relieved to see it end.
I put the down time to good use. I wrote, planned, researched and resolved some of the projects and issues that needed the kind of focus and commitment that only a retrograde Mercury can provide. And I have a deeper appreciation for my newly restored chariot. The rental car was nice, but when my auto lease is up, I’m going to get the 2014 model of the car I drive now.
How about you? How did you experience the three weeks of review time that Mercury retrograde provides?
