From Chrissie Blaze:
Just to reminder that Mercury went retrograde yesterday, January 11, 2009 at 7 degrees Aquarius and continues backwards into Capricorn for the rest of January. It then goes direct again on February 1.
Most of you know all those Mercury Retrograde things to remember by now. It’s a time for all the re- words – reflect, reconsider, revise. It’s not a time to push forward but a time to go over your plans and decisions that you have previously made.
It’s a good time to reconnect with old friends. Remember also, it can cause confusion and frustration. As it’s retrograde in Aquarius, this can particularly affect computers, e-mails and technology in general.
It’s best to be careful what you say, what you offer to do, what you commit to because things can seem very different after the Mercury Retrograde period.
Be very careful if you have to commit to something now by reading all the fine print and perhaps getting an outside expert involved as well.
On the positive side, you can think outside the box more readily now. You can see and understand things you may not have noticed previously. You can be very insightful and it’s a good time for reflection, meditation and spiritual practices as Mercury’s effect is leading us inwards.
Watch the news and see all the “gaffs” in communication that occur during this time and make a note of these in your own life.
Take a deep breath before you speak and count to ten!
