The Dreaded Mercury Retrograde
Do the words: chaos, or upside down and backwards, everything went wrong, you would not believe what happened…etc. Does it coincide when mercury is in retrograde?
“According to legend and to Roman mythology, Mercury was the god of trade, commerce, merchants, thieves and travelers. He was the messenger of the gods. He is often represented wearing winged sandals and holding a staff with two snakes around it. He escorted the dead souls to the underworld and afterlife known as Pluto's realm.” Wikipidia
I feel the mercury retrograde has had a bad rap and truly could not be totally responsible for our communications or lack of it!
That is actually true of most cases. So let us look at some aspects of this planet and description before we make a judgment
In the planets the mercury planet is going retrograde or backwards is an illusion. The planets slow down their forward movement and that gives the illusion of it stopping or going backwards. It creates a lot of energy of confusion and obstacles seem to be magnified.
Obstacles of communication seem to be affected the most. Computers, contracts, communication... etc. Is it the fault of Mercury? Really?
