You just might miss that email or forget to send one. You might even say things that seem to just slip out of your mouth or even become speechless during moments of expected quick-wit.
Appointments could get mixed up. There just seems to be lots of room for "oopses" and forgetfulness during this 3 week period. Mercury does this 3 times a year and it always lasts about 3 weeks.
Starting today, July 14, 2012 at 10:16pm EST, Mercury will appear to be going backwards from your perspective on Earth. This will last until August 8, 2012 at 1:40am EST
Mercury is the planet of communication and quick travels. It rules all means of communication devices whether that is email, the internet in general, home phones, cell phones, the mail service and even your tongue! Mercury also rules all means of traveling be it your bicycle, car, the bus, subway and even your shoes!
This airy mental Planet is also very logical. Thinking quick and brainstorming might not run as smoothly as it should during this time.
If you believe yourself to be immune to Mercury retrograde then good for you. But if you Know that this can mean trouble for the next few weeks, then here are some tips:
Be prepared. Be prepared for traveling delays. Leave a lot earlier than usual. At worst, you will just be early. If you are "immune" to Mercury retrograde, then be patient for the other people who get caught up in delays and keep you waiting.
Double check your emails before you send them. Double check Anything before you proceed with Anything.
Be aware. This is the key.. You can cut your chances of losing things by just being aware of what you are doing at all times. Be aware and you won't end up saying things you wish you didn't say and if you are aware then you will know he right thing to say at the right time. (See links at bottom.)
So what is good about Mercury retrograde?
Mercury retrograde can cause a lot of set backs, but this gives major opportunities to re-think, re-plan, and re-do everything that you did wrong before, but didn't notice until now.
Personally, I like to do a retrospection over my life from these past few months so I can see what mistakes I've made, and correct them during this time in which it is hard to move forward unless you start taking the right steps.
If you are eager to stay on top, get organized, and progress with yourself then this Mercury retrograde will be a great benefit to you if you know how to take advantage of it.
