Heads Up -1st Mercury Retrograde Of 2015! By astrosandy
Prepare, prepare, prepare! It won’t happen until next week so it may seem a little early to be on the alert for potential Mercury Retrograde messes, but since it is the first one of 2015 (there are 3 per year), being prepared won’t hurt. Mercury will stop forward motion and go backwards in the sky on January 21, 2015 in the unpredictable, revolutionary, group oriented, Air sign of Aquarius. The areas of life affected are the usual Mercury influenced things – speaking / writing, travel, transportation, education, manual dexterity, small electrical gadgets, etc. With Aquarius, ruled by erratic, eccentric Uranus, in the mix, communication and technical snafus are even more prone to happen. As always, back up, double check, confirm. We can try to avoid disasters and mayhem with diligence and care until the winged planet goes Direct again on February 11, 2015.
Organization is key. Copy your files now, locate the battery chargers (make sure they still work for the gadgets your have), set aside extra ink for the printer, check the batteries on the pacemaker, make sure the bills are paid, etc. Don’t create problems because of carelessness.
As always, Mercury Retrograde is a good time to make future plans, complete projects and of course to exercise all those “re” actions: re evaluate, re write, re assess, re acquaint, re fresh. Take the time to pause and reflect, rather than jump into new schemes, new contracts, etc.
However, life happens regardless of where planets are and we will get through to the other side, again.
