Retrograde - AGAIN
Yes my friends it's that time again. Mercury has gone into retrograde. Generally screwing up communications, travel, appointments and so on out the window. According to Rob Tillett on Astrology on the Web we'll have this wonderful environment in effect until August 26th.
So what does that mean? Misinformation, confusion, mental lapse to start out. Generally when Mercury goes into retrograde things go awry. The website Parker's Planets gives the example of George Bush's infamous landing on an aircraft carrier to declare victory in the war with Iraq as an example.
I tried searching the web for other examples of chaos while mercury is in retograde and found one web page that refers to events that happen while the it was in Leo. I'll share those just the same.
Here's a few examples from the 90's.

What can we do? Here's a few tips for surviving .....
Leave early for appointments, anything can happen to slow you down. Mercury governs travel and communication so when it retrogrades some of it's powers are diminished. Double check those directions, confirm appointment times and be sure that you have crossed your T's and dotted your I's.
On a personal note, hubby has a big job interview right smack dab in the middle of this whole business. As we all know you shouldn't sign on the dotted line, or begin new endeavors while Mercury is in retrograde. That being said, we know that if he does take this new job, we can expect changes in it.
I'm also spending this time preparing for spell work with a small group on this DC-40 business. I've made a blog post about it previously and won't go into it again right now. But for those interested in defending your right to religious freedom please feel free to contact me directly and help support the cause.
