Yep, it’s that time of year where Murphy’s Law kicks into overdrive. If you haven’t started a project, try to put it off. Mercury (that little fucking planet) is going retrograde from Thursday, Sept. 17, until Friday, Oct. 9th.
What does this mean?
It means life’s about to get bumpy. It’s the Universe’s version of PMS on a cosmic scale.
It can interfere with things like communication (misunderstandings abound), computers (crashes, anyone?), contracts, etc. Mercury retro is a great time to go back and reflect, or if you’re a writer to edit, or to revisit incomplete things and try to finish them. Don’t start new projects if you can avoid it during this time. Try not to start a new job, or sign a lease/sales contract. Put off elective procedures, if possible. Back up your computers before it hits. Try not to buy/sell anything expensive. Expect things to break down/give you hassles. Expect issues with personal relationships during this time and miscommunications.
In other words slow down, try to chillax, and breathe your way through it. If you have stuff you’ve been putting off completing, this is the time to finally do it and try to get it done and off your plate. Or if you need to go back and revisit something that was started in the past, now’s your time.
Above all, try to keep a sense of humor. You know the Universe won’t hesitate to laugh at you. 🙂
