I had a hunch, so I checked it out and, sure enough, I was right.
Mercury went retrograde on January 11th and won’t stop the retrograde motion until February 1st, reaching a full return on February 14th. Whew!
I KNEW there was something going on with communications and thinking, but no one here had mentioned it and I kept forgetting to check it out.
The next retrograde period begins on May 7th and will continue until May 31st, achieving a full return on June 14th.
There is another period in September and another one in December.
So hang on, everyone, things are about to settle down and straighten out in a few more days! If you don’t know what it means to have Mercury go in retrograde motion, here is a good page that explains what it’s all about.
