People will be experiencing many annoyances such as missing important calls, missing appointments, poor communication, and electronic devices and vehicles breaking down. These can happen at anytime of the year however, the likelihood of experiencing these mishaps occur a lot more when Mercury, the planet of movement, communication and thought is in retrograde.
Mercury goes into retrograde about three to four times a year. The planet of communication is about to go into retrograde again on August 20, 2010, this time in Virgo, and will be ready to get back into direct motion on September 12, 2010. However, Mercury has been in it’s shadow, meaning it is getting ready to go into retrograde. These mishaps have been happening already to many people. Because after September 12, Mercury will still be in its shadow for a few weeks as kinks need to be worked out. The energies will return to normal around September 27, 2010.
Due to so many mishaps occurring such as cars breaking down, phone lines and the internet not working, people getting into arguments due to misunderstandings, experiencing delays while traveling, and so on, it is best to avoid getting involved into situations if possible. The fact that Mercury is in Virgo will have a stronger effect.
This is not a time to begin new projects or make major decisions. If something new is started during this time, it is likely that something will go wrong after Mercury goes direct and will have to be started again. It is best not to make any major travel plans or make big purchases unless it absolutely cannot be avoided. Do not make any huge investments. Appointments made in advance at this time will likely not be followed through and will need to be changed later on. Expect emails or mail not to go through. Expect to miss important messages as well. It is definitely a time of chaos. This can easily explain that disasters could be caused by faulty equipment like what happened to Kurt Browning’s house. The fire being caused likely by a lawn mower. http://www.cp24.com/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100818/100818_fire/20100818/?hub=CP24Home It is also no coincidence that Steven Tyler also fell off of the stage while preforming at the Air Canada Centre during the shadow www.cp24.com/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20100818/100818_steven_tyler/20100818/?hub=CP24Entertainment. However, Mercury in retrograde does have its advantages.
It may not be a good idea to start new projects but it is an excellent time to finish up old ones. And old manuscript that has been worked on can be edited quite well right now. It is a great time to clean up old clutter. It may be regarding cupboards and closets, or getting rid of friends who are not really your friends. This is a great time to seek psychic advice as many issues will come to surface and will need to be examined. Fated events are also known to happen during Mercury in retrograde. Real friends will be discovered, and those who are not true friends will break away. Sometimes when a huge purchase is made and it feels as if it was meant to happen, then its a time to pay attention to very strong intuition. For instance, a strong feeling comes over to purchase a new car. The feeling is strong in the heart. Even though most of the time it is not a good idea to make big purchases during Mercury in retrograde, if intuition is screaming to buy a new car, then listen. Perhaps it’s a sign that a high possibility of a fatal accident will occur with the old car. Dreams will be easily remembered as well.
In other words, this is a time when the soul needs serious examination, and all of the other clutter around you including technology will go faulty in order to get people to pay attention what their souls are in need of right now.
