Mercury Retrograde, June 26, 2013 – July 20, 2013

Run for cover! (Really, just kidding.) Mercury turns retrograde today, June 26 in Cancer; it will station direct on July 20. Since Mercury is so slow-moving, the effects of this retrograde period likely started being felt a few days ago, and the effects could potentially be felt for a few weeks afterward (until the end […]

Mercury Retrograde, February 23, 2013 – March 17, 2013

Run for cover! (Really, just kidding.) Mercury will turn retrograde tomorrow, February 23 in Pisces; it will station direct on March 17.

I’ve stated many times before that Mercury retrograde […]

Mercury Retrograde, March 12, 2012 – April 4, 2012

Run for cover! (Really, just kidding.) Mercury will turn retrograde on Monday, March 12 in Aries; it will retrograde back into Pisces on March 23 before stationing direct on April 4. Since Mercury is so slow-moving, the effects of this retrograde period could potentially be felt for a few weeks afterward (until the end of […]

Mercury Retrograde March 30-April 23, 2011: A Time of Personal Transformation

Run for cover! (Really, just kidding.) Mercury has turned retrograde today at 25 degrees Aries, and will remain retrograde until April 23, when it again turns direct.

Since Mercury is so slow-moving, the effects of this retrograde period could potentially be felt for a few weeks afterward (until the end of September). I’ve […]

Is Mercury Retrograde Really All That Scary?

While watching HGTV with my husband last night, there was a show featuring a young couple trying to purchase their first home. The home they picked out had a price tag of $259,000; they offered about $240,000 and asked for closing costs. The seller’s counter offer was a staggering $258,000 and no closing costs. She’d […]

Mercury Again Goes Retrograde, 12/26/2009 – 1/15/2010

That crafty trickster Mercury has again gone retrograde, this period (entirely in Capricorn) lasting from December 26, 2009 through January 15, 2010. Perhaps it is because the new year is just days away that this particular retrograde period I’m focusing on rebirth and renewal. Mercury retrograde is synonymous in popular culture with a time of […]

Mercury is Direct But It Lags Behind

Please welcome guest blogger Sharon Leah to Guided by the Stars! Sharon works with Llewellyn’s Calendars and Almanacs in our Production department. Mercury is in apparent direct motion again after being retrograde nearly all of September. Did anyone breeze through this retrograde period unscathed? The winged trickster tagged me. I purchased a new domain name […]

Rethinking Mercury Retrograde, the Trickster and Teacher

We are told that Mercury Retrograde is generally not the time to start something new. We certainly should avoid beginning projects or dealing with any form of technology. So why did Llewellyn decide to launch its new website? I was thinking of this, and decided it wasn’t such an inauspicious beginning. Mercury Retrograde is not as […]

Let Loose the Grasp of Mercury Retrograde!

As of Saturday, May 30, Mercury was no longer retrograde.  And yes, as I write this I can be found dancing around the office, for the flustered communication, mussed social plans, and kaput electronic devices that have so plagued me in the last few weeks shall bother me no more! (Well, until September 7, when […]
