Mercury went into retrograde on March 2nd and will continue its apparent backwards journey until March 25th. During a Mercury Retrograde, the energy of short term travel and communication are disrupted. Thus, it is good to allow extra time when traveling and to be extra diligent about backing up your computer files.
It is easy to be misunderstood during a Mercury Retrograde, so if you have important conversations to have, it is especially important to be mindful of your message and that it is being received properly.
Mercury Retrogrades are a great time to finish old projects and for cleaning up. This is the time for Spring Cleaning for sure. If you have a new project to begin, it is best to wait to begin new projects until the Mercury Retrograde has passed. If you must start now, be extra diligent about handling all of the details.
