I have had some requests from clients regarding what I REALLY think about Mercury retrograde periods. Several times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be going backwards. The key word here is “appears”.  We are in one of those times right now.  It started on Oct 21 and ends on Nov 10th. When folks talk about how everything goes wrong during a Mercury retrograde period, they are somewhat correct.  Think about what happens when you walk backwards.  It’s healthy to move the muscles in new ways, and by walking backwards you get a new viewpoint.  This isn’t a negative thing.  But you might bump into something, if you are not looking over your shoulder.  So my advice, during Mercury retrograde is to be extra on guard.   Be alert and make sure everything is as right as it can be.  Some of us were born during a Mercury retrograde period.  I am one of those people. During these times, it’s as if I am finally moving with the crowd….in a backward sort of way.  So things actually work out for me, since I am going with the overall flow.  As soon as it goes direct, I actually feel the way most of the world does when it is retrograde.   I think I am so used to this energetic reversal, that I don’t really worry about it one way or another. However for those of you born during a Mercury direct (going forward) period, you might feel these retrograde times in a more pointed way.  Hope this makes sense!  Let me know what your experiences have been!  The only way to understand Astrology is by personally experiencing it.

  1. I just found out tonight that I was born during a Mercury Retrograde!! I am a Pisces, as well, and can easily feel out of step with the world anyway.
    In terms of luck, I have a friend who enjoys taking me to the casino with her. She does wonderfully, VERY often doubling her money, winning jackpots, while I lose it all, or end up with only half what I came with before I make myself stop.
    She always checks The Law of Abundance dates that Maria Shaw advertises and avoids Mercury Retrogrades MOST of the time.
    The one time we went DURING a Mercury retrograde, I doubled my money to $400 and she went down from $600 to 200 over her usual 9 to 10 hours of playtime and then gave up.
    Does this make sense to you regarding your experience and knowledge of when Mercury is in retrograde?

    • Hi Catherine,

      Yes, this makes perfect sense! That is exactly why people born with Mercury retrograde should “Make hay while the sun shines” during those retrograde periods. The tricky thing for us, is that we get the reverse during the rest of the year. Hope this helps!
