What exactly is Mercury Retrograde?
Just when you have it starting to come together the Zodiac throws you this astrological speed bump! Mercury Retrograde is a period of time where Astrologers observe the planet Mercury ‘appears’ to stop and move backwards. This reverses its direction through the Zodiac.
These retrograde periods happen to other Planets too. As Mercury rules communication and travel this is very significant especially in the modern World. Mercury Retrograde occurs three times a year and can affect you before or just after these periods.
Tip: It’s a good idea to put the annual Mercury Retrograde dates into your calendar, diary or planner. You can easily find the year’s dates online these days.
During Mercury Retrograde you can expect an increase in miscommunication, travel delays or cancellations. Messages go astray, electrical and technological problems. New plans may not go as expected…
What to do During Mercury Retrograde:
Review your future plans
Go over the details of any contracts you need to sign or delay them if possible
Think very carefully about how you communicate with others
Avoid pointless arguments which may result from differences in opinion or misunderstandings
Remember to back up your computer and mobile phone

Again, most timely!!! Does Mercury in retrograde affect finances as well? xxoo
Glad it is helpful to you Gaye. I have not heard it connected to money but might be worth looking into to see what astrologers say online.
I have found quite a bit about finances regarding mercury in retrograde……it goes along with all of the other cautions 🙂 Here is some of what I found:
Thank you Etan, so helpful, such beautiful crystals. I had better take my Amazonite heart to work. I love the Angelite by name, purpose and colour. I have some tumbled stones including angelite and fluorite, also a small haemetite skull.
Thank you and glad you have some of these crystals already Celine 🙂
Is there such thing as carrying too many stones and crystals on you at one time?
Thanks for these suggestions! I will make a pouch of stones for Mercury retrograde the next time it comes around.
Great question Sara. I think this is a very personal thing. Some people like to carry or wear alot of crystals and have no problems. If you find you feel ungrounded doing this you may need to reduce the number of stones and see if that feels better.
Thank you!helpful info!
