Top 5 Things not to do During Mercury Retrograde

5 Things not to do during Mercury Retrograde.

1. Don’t buy new appliances/electronic/new cars. Should you buy a new appliance or electronic during the Mercury Retrograde period, the appliance or electronic can turn out to be a lemon. Or you may have buyer’s remorse. If you must buy a big ticket item such as a stove or car, buy it used.

2. Don’t text, call, or send smoke signals to an ex-lover/partner. Resist the urge of contacting them. They are your past for a reason. Either way, they may be contacting you. This is the season to running into old loves, friends, etc. Basically, you have a high probability of running into your past during this period.

3. Don’t plan to launch a magazine, business, website, or publish a book. There will be delays in the launch or opening of business or there will be a lot of hiccups or things happening unexpectedly. You may not get the great reception that you may have hoped for.

4. Don’t have surgery unless it is a dire emergency like a life or death situation. At this point in time, mistakes are bound to happen whether you like it or not. There is just too much room for error even with the best doctors. If you can postpone your surgery until after the Mercury Retrograde, then please do so. You don’t want to have the same surgery twice.

5. Don’t start a new job or buy/sell house. Why? If you start a new job during a Mercury Retrograde there is a big possibility that the job you interviewed for may not be what you expected or your position changes and it’s not what you had hope for. As buying or selling house, you may run into unforeseen problems like termite or roof issues or there will be delays with the closing or closing date.

5 things to do when Mercury is Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde is here! The Mercury retrograde periods are infamous for delays, tardiness, stealing, cheating, electronic crashing, breakdowns, breakups, and miscommunications. All this can be frustrating, however, this doesn’t mean you can’t survive it. You CAN survive Mercury Retrograde especially when you have the right information as to what to do during a mercury retrograde. Here are 5 things you should do when Mercury is in retrograde:

  1. Be flexible. You can expect a lot delays and tardiness when Mercury is in retrograde so you need to be flexible when scheduling a meeting, a flight, or hanging out with friends. Expect to be at places a lot longer that you originally intent to be at.
  2. Backup. Back all electronics and data such as photos, documents, files, etc. This is a time period where you can lose so much value information especially if you are not backing it up.
  3. Confirm. Make a checklist and check, re-check it. Re-check and confirm all meetings, deadlines, dates, and appointments. Some of us will miss appointments and deadlines if we don’t re-check and confirm dates and time. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to re-check and confirm.
  4. Reconnect and reminisce. Reconnect and reminisce with old friends. Plan a get together and then take a stroll down memory lane and remember all the good times that were had.
  5. Write in a Journal. During this time, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding which can lead to contact an ex. There is a reason why that person is an ex. Leave the ex in the past and write out all of your intense and bottled up feelings.

Yes, this is a time for a lot of miscommunications, misunderstandings, disruption in technology, and confusion. There may be some cheating and stealing involved during this period, as well. But still, it’s really not that bad at all. This is a time to reflect and make better choices.

I’ve already had friends and clients reach out to me to ask “What does Mercury Retrograde mean?” and “How is this going to affect me?” and my response is: This isn’t a time to worry about just Mercury Retrograde, instead what they should really do is look at ALL the aspects in their life and do away with things, situations, and/or people who no longer meet their values or hold a true meaning in their lives. It is really okay to leave friendships, relationships, etc. that are toxic because we all come into this world to learn and evolve. 

And if you really want to see where Mercury retrograde will affect you, look at your chart and see which house the transiting Mercury Retrograde is in. The house in your natal astrology chart will give you an indication as to where all the disruption will be. Continue reading to see how Mercury Retrograde affects each house.

What does Mercury Retrograde mean?

The planet Mercury rules communication, electronics, travel, contracts, and automobiles, and thieves. Mercury goes retrograde about three (3) times a year. It is said that Mercury moves in an opposite direction to planet Earth, so it gives the illusion that Mercury is moving backwards or moving in retrograde. But in reality, Mercury is just moving slower than Earth.

Honestly, Mercury in retrograde is really not a bad thing because it is an opportunity to take a pause in life and re-look at what’s going on in life to be able to review and make better choices and decisions. Yes, there are moments of confusion but it’s at those times that you need to step up and ask for clarification. At this time, you want to focus on doing the following:

  • review
  • reassess
  • re-think
  • reevaluate
  • renovate
  • renew
  • redo
  • reflect
  • realign
  • re-check
  • relearning
  • revisit
  • reconnect
  • reorganize
  • refine
  • refocus
  • release
