What is Mercury Retrograde?

Apparently, Mercury Retrograde in 2020 has everyone feeling very emotional and focused on their past. No wonder why old friends keep hitting up my DMs.   

Scientifically, it’s when our planet’s orbit interacts with the orbits of the other planets. Sometimes they might appear to be traveling backward through the night sky with respect to the zodiac. Fun Snapple fact! Mercury Retrograde can occur three times a year and during these times people may experience confusion, delay, and frustration. Going back to reflecting on the past, it’s said that intuition is high during these periods and coincidences can be surprising.

How do you prepare during this time? When Mercury is in retrograde, remain flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Double check your email responses, check in with reservations before you take that trip. In summary, plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be prepared for angrier people and miscommunication. 

Do you want to be ready for the next time that Mercury will be in apparent retrograde motion? Get ready! Cause the next dates are June 18 to July 12 and October 14 to November 3.
