Mercury retrograde, which occurs three times a year for about three weeks each time, is interpreted particularly strongly. Mental pursuits and connections break down.
The Mercury retrograde period is best used as a time for inner reflection. (White Mirror 13-day cycle). It is not a good time for making new decisions or new business plans, but it is ideal for reflecting on your current situation.
It is best to quietly observe your inner process during Mercury retrograde, and to carry forward with your preexisting plans. Ask yourself: Where am I heading in my life at this particular juncture? Then try to move forward with new directions only after Mercury has gone direct, and perhaps even a fortnight beyond, when Mercury has left its retrograde shadow.
