Mercury Retrograde in Your Sun Sign!
For all my friends out there that are really only interested in how this Mercury Retrograde in Taurus will directly affect you per your sun sign, I have this for you! As we all know that Mercury in Retrograde can affect our travel and communication. So as a refresher here are some do’s and don’ts of Mercury Retrograde!
- Review all contracts and legal documents before signing.
- Pause and breathe before speaking and repeat yourself if necessary!
- Read all emails and documents before you send.
- Insure/track important mail and packages, since Mercury rules the postal system.
- Get your vehicles (or bikes) tuned up and be sure to pack an emergency roadside kit.
- Leave early for any travel and appointments, since Mercury can delay flights.
- Renew your commitments instead of making new ones.
- Focus on the prefix,re —which means to go backward — and renew, review, revamp, redecorate, et al.
- Plan reunions with old friends & loved ones, but prepare for possible mishaps!
- Expect to hear from/run into people from your past at the weirdest moments.
- Get sentimental. Reconnect with your roots and walk down memory lane.
- Practice forgiveness. Finish processing what’s unresolved so you can let it go.
- Confirm all dates, plans, meetings and appointments.
- Think of the retrograde as a quarterly review period, a chance to pause and finish what you’ve started during that timeframe.
- Back up your digital data (photos, contact lists and files) before the retrograde or ASAP, if it has already begun.
- Buy new vehicles, electronic equipment or gadgets (unless they come with a good return/repair policy).
- Sign contracts without a thorough review. Delay until Mercury turns direct if you can.
- Fly off the handle or jump to conclusions if someone misunderstands you.
- Run into the arms/bed of an ex without careful screening (Mercury reunions aren’t always meant to last).
- Shoot the messenger if someone from your past comes around.
- Put anything sketchy into an email or text (you could hit “Reply All” or send to the wrong person!).
- Leave late for flights or appointments.
- Start anything new before finishing what’s next on the to-do list.
- Lead people on, give mixed messages, or believe everything you hear (actions speak louder than words).
- Spread rumors, rant on social media or share unconfirmed information.
- Turn in sloppy or unchecked work, cut corners, or dash off hasty communications. Inspect to protect!
