Fools rush in where angels fear to tread
As I write this Mercury is just about, or has just gone, retrograde. Mercury Retrograde is an astronomical event that gives the impression that the planet Mercury is travelling back across the night sky. This happens due to the way the planet orbits and hangs out with the sun (or Sol, to be really with it).
Mercury Retrograde is also an astrological event, according to those of that ilk. It’s a time when one is advised not to embark on new projects, as various things might go awry. It is fine to plan and think and envision, but wait till Mercury goes back to the forward to implement things.
This is great for me. As I mentioned here, I am reviewing and planning. Far too often I jump straight into things. I don’t stop and think. Using Mercury Retrograde as a thing will be good for me.
Rituals, calendar events, myth, superstition – I am using them all over the next few weeks. Mercury Retrograde is seen as being a negative time by some, let’s see if I can use it to a positive end.
