Retrograde planets display an erratic motion which is linked to delays, recurrences, returns to previous conditions, reversals of events, and unexpected events occurring suddenly or becoming more dramatic and intense. A Mercury retrograde period is a difficult time to begin new projects linked to communication, networking, information-flow and travel. Extra caution is needed to ensure that messages are clearly understood and delivered; this often involves slowing things down and ensuring that compromises are not made for the sake of speed. Mercury retrograde reminds us that efficiency is built upon stability, so think of it as a maintenance period, ideal for revisiting old problems that call for action but lay ignored. If communication problems exist, Mercury retrograde will bring them back to your attention. By taking time out to resolve them now you will be better equipped to make smooth progress in the future. Mercury experiences a retrograde cycle about once every 4 months, and remains retrograde for about 3 weeks.
