Mercury in Retrograde

Last week it seemed that everyone I talked to was having trouble focusing. Phones were on the fritz, iPods were particularily testy and a lovely little virus made its home in my computer. What the?!

It turns out that Mercury in retrograde is to blame. Mercury retrograde is sort of like the cosmic "Murphy's Law." It's said to cause all sorts of mayhem in communications- technology goes beserk, mail gets lost, appointments and travel times get missed. This usually happens around 3 times a year and we're right in the thick of it. It's not all bad though. During Mercury retrograde you're likely to bump into old friends, find lost belongings and things that may have been foggy in the past will become clear to you.

When Mercury is in retrograde, it's a bad idea to start new projects or make important decisions. We should use this time to slow down, reflect on the past, repair relationships and tie up any of life's loose ends.

The retrograde ends on Saturday so fret not about your wonky e mails, phones and iPods. Instead, take some time to reflect and reconnect.

I sound like a total hippy.
