Mercury Retrograde March 5th – March 28th … Plus Neptune
What complicates this particular new
moon is that Mercury, the planet that rules communication and your
mental processing, is going retrograde in Pisces at the same time. And
Neptune, the planet that deals with the imagination and intangible
realms, is also passing through Pisces. Neptune is known for making
things seem fuzzy and unclear. So, you may find that during this new
moon you will have to work harder to focus and be clear about what you
want to manifest. This would be a good time to meditate and let your
subconscious do the work.
When Mercury is retrograde you can expect delays and miscommunications. Delays in travel by land, air or sea. Missed phone communications. Quite often we may have to retrace our steps and repeat our original task. It can be as simple as not being able to reach someone on the phone, or a letter does not get delivered or is sidetracked, goes somewhere else and has to be re-delivered. It is best to postpone anything of real importance in your life until after the Mercury retrograde phase, which lasts approximately three to four weeks.
The good news is that you can take advantage of the Mercury Rx cycle to regroup, re-think, reorganize, and reprocess information. It’s also a great time to clean out your closets and drawers.
Other areas to be mindful of are as faxes, post offices, letters, computers, telephones, transport of all kinds, communication in many forms. These may have a tendency to be disrupted while Mercury is out of whack. It is not the best time to apply for a job, start a new job or set up a business, start a new course, take that trip, start a new relationship, build a house, buy a car, write that book, enter that competition or just about anything else that you are depending on a good outcome, because it will often be delayed, changed, or involve so many backwards and forwards steps that you tie yourself all up in knots and have to cope with all the unravelling later.
