No planet in the universe can turn retrograde. A retrograde planet is just the result of an optical illusion.

It is that wonderful time of the year again…  Mercury heading into Retrograde.    Some people completely freak out about this astrological phenomena.   I find it an awesome time to sit back and reflect on things that have happened since the last retrograde.

These times in particular were traditionally associated with confusions, delay, and frustration.    Remember what you focus on tends to be a magnet.    So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Double check your email responses, check in with reservations before you take that trip.
