Mercury Retrograde Nov.6-Nov.26, 2012

When the planet Mercury goes retrograde its effects are less effective than when the planet is direct. What does that mean? Retrogrades are good for taking your time in doing things, not rushing, for learning things thoroughly and researching and asking questions, getting a lot of opinions and buying time. Mercury goes retrograde about 3 times per year giving us all added time to negotiate, ask questions and perfect whatever’s going on in our lives at that time. Do you retreat from life and business? No, you simply become more careful and selective. If you are in tune you will naturally do this, and there won’t be a problem. However, if you are anxious and nervous and not in a good place in time; Mercury retrograde could cause problems for you. As one of the personal planets, Mercury rules our daily activities, communications, computers, short travels in the car, by bus or any other transportation. It rules communications; telephones, computers, and agreements, and misunderstandings.
When a planet is in its storm, it means that the planet is nearing retrograde or coming out of retrograde and its movements are slower. Which is still good for things that require our time, our efforts and in many cases keep us from making mistakes, If our processes are slower we will approach people, things and new ventures more carefully and with a lot more patience and thought. This is needed in the case of research.
In its shadow it is repeating the degrees of the retrograde period. The theory goes that we will repeat the events or experiences that took place during the repeated degrees. A planet makes its first pass, goes retrograde and makes its 2nd pass over the same degrees, has 2 retrograde degree points, known as the it’s station or stationary points or stationary degree and repeats the same degrees once more in it’s 3rd pass through. Approximately 3 times per year the planet Mercury appears to go in apparent retrograde motion this usually lasts for about 18 days. It goes backwards and, repeats the degrees over again and then again when it goes apparent direct. Giving 3 opportunities to repeat, review, and re-enact some portion of our lives and experiences. Mercury in retrograde is not really moving backwards, it moves away from the Earth in its orbit.
Mercury retrograde gives us the opportunity to reassess and renegotiate. It slows us down so that we don't feel as if life is moving at warp speed.
