why is that that i always want to start new things when mercury is retrograde?? every single time like clockwork.  and my life will demand it, too.  my natal mercury isn’t retrograde.

i unexpectedly lost 60% of my usual income and have no choice but to do something about that NOW.  i can’t wait for a better time.  does anyone have any advice?

By any chance, has your natal Merc turned Rx by progression?

Is your natal Mercury retro?

Lots of times Mercury retrograde can be used to go over things again or you’re given a chance to redo things. Maybe starting new things is a way for you to redo things that haven’t worked. Or maybe you are abandoning things that you should give another try or tweak. I’m not sure. Just some ideas for you.

Well, you should certainly fix your income issue if that’s a big problem (sounds like it is!). You should just do what you need to do. Mercury retrograde happens about three times a year. That’s a lot of time and people can’t put their lives on hold for all that time! Just realize, it could totally work out or it could have a snafu that, if you play it right and don’t panic, could either be a blessing in disguise or a weird, winding road that leads to something better.

I wish you luck and good fortune!

Just review anything thing you sign and re-read any kind of messages before hitting send and you should be fine. The whole world can’t stop living for several weeks a year.

Allie & Tam, Thanks for the explanations.

I’ve got a few things going on right now & I’m freaking out that it’s during Mercury retro.

I’m a worrywort.

So your comments help to dedramatize. Whew, but I’ll try to remain careful…

lol I have lots of Virgo so I get it.

Sometimes it helps to talk it out or write it out to get your thoughts, and in turn your emotions, organized.

All the best to you!

Yes ! Very good suggestion.

And funny – as a matter of fact, I’d started writing here yesterday about a current mishmash and by the time I’d done like 20 lines I thought, “Screw this! It makes me look like a nut case”, and canceled!

Well, I may be a nut case even without the mishmash. But for some strange reason I overreacted about this mishmash, couldn’t understand the intensity of my reaction. Turns out that aside Merc RX, I have Saturn transiting square my poor Mars, so probably he is frustrated. (and bad mood!)

It was just another badly-timed mismatched conversation, Mercury communication problem!
