I’m often asked if it’s okay to schedule surgery with Mercury retrograde. I answer this question on a case by case basis. Generally speaking, it is not a deal-breaker for me.
I say this because Mercury is primarily concerned with timing and communication. Cutting of any kind is a Mars function.
I mention this now because I scheduled surgery this month, with Mercury retrograde. It’s a revision of a prior surgery so I thought that fit.
Yesterday, the surgeon’s nurse called to tell he the doctor had a cancellation and they could move mine up, if I wanted. This led to a flurry of conversations and phone calls. Twenty minutes later, I agreed to the new day and time.
I think is is a good example of rolling with Mercury retrograde. Ultimately your mortality is not in your hands anyway. Posting this to let you know that I will disappear sooner than I thought, but be back sooner than I thought. As far as I’m concerned, it’s wash.
What’s really disabling is the worry and anxiety that Mercury retrograde can cause. If you have to circle the block a few times before you can park your car – so what?
I have an appointment to have an alignment on my car, I’ll have to cancel. See how this works?
