With Mercury deep in retrograde, here is a reminder of what that means and how it affects you. Mercury is the messenger god, and is most associated with all things that deal with communications-from casual discussions to important contracts. Retrograde is a retreating motion, moving backward, and like a card reversal in tarot, we see an opposition effect on all forms of communication. This is a time to be very aware of what you say, how you say it, and to whom you speak. Be prudent with your words and exercise caution when speaking with people. Do not engage in important discussions; keep contracts open until Mercury goes direct on May 11. Think before you speak and you should fare well during this confusing astrological period.
