What Can You Do On A Retrograde Mercury?

Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks.
Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks.

Today is Wednesday (mercredi in French) and is
ruled by Mercury. “Wednesday’s child is full of
woe” might be interpreted as a person who worries
or thinks too much. Today, January 6th,
Mercury goes retrograde until January 26th. In
Greek mythology, Mercury is the messenger of the
gods and an adaptation of the Greek god, Hermes.
Like Hermes, Mercury was a messenger who wore
winged sandals and hat and carried a herald’s
staff called a caduceus.

Mercury rules communication and travel. When the
planet Mercury goes retrograde, his forward
movement in the skies is stopped. For 3 weeks, it
will give all of us a chance to go back and clean
up our mess: paperwork, straighten out our
communication problems, and give us some time to
get things back in order. If you have been
experiencing dropped phone calls or bad
communicating at home or work, you can blame it on
the god, Mercury. You have 3 weeks until Mercury

computer, or phone, or any other mechanical thing
in your life. If you are planning to travel during
this time, check and recheck your flights and
hotel reservations to avoid all unwanted surprises.
It could be challenging for a few weeks, but don’t
worry for “everything’s gonna be all right”. You
will get done what is needed to get done. Maybe it
will take a little more effort and awareness to
get through the delays, but it’s only
temporary. You’ll get back to your practices and
regular routines in no time. As for me, I will
take my computer in for repair and put my winter
practice in full swing. One of the important
practices that I have been doing to keep on target
is the Tension Release exercise. It clears
accumulated tension, stress, and anger, and it
clears your path for better communication, no
matter what the planets are doing.

Mercury goes retrograde 4 times in 2016. The more
informed you are about what’s going on, the better
off you will be. Educate yourself and your family
as much as possible. Get a copy of my most popular
program, Turn Stress Into Power, and learn these
powerful techniques to guide you on the path of

I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and
