Re: How does Mercury retrograde affect you?

Personally, I've noticed nothing when mercury goes retrograde.

Possibly because I don't pay much attention to my communication troubles or because the communication problems are too minor for me to consider them obstacles.

Right now, Mercury is transiting my second house and I can't check the balance in my account right now because the app is being dumb. But then again, the app does this frequently even when mercury is direct, so... And I'm sure the app will start working again in like an hour or so.

Re: How does Mercury retrograde affect you?

However, when I think about it... My internet won't connect to my video game console to play mkwii and it's freaking annoying! I got an adapter to try ethernet, I called the people at the tech place to activate my port and it took them forever for them to actually connect; I had to email them multiple times and even call them only for me to submit an application that took even more time; I spent all this money for an ethernet cord and adapter, and hooked up the cords after rearranging my room and STILL, there's always a communication error. The game literally says communication error when it fails to connect. Really dissapointing...

However, when mercury goes direct, I think the game will continue to not work because the school internet is not made to work with a third party server and an old game from 2008.

From this, I would say that Mercury retrograde signifies certain communications that are absolutely doomed for now and in the future, rather than mercury retrograde being a period of general incommunicado.

Re: How does Mercury retrograde affect you?

My son has spent the last couple days rebuilding his computer only to turn it on and it wouldn't start. He was getting increasingly angry as his searching for the problems got him nowhere. Because Mars was aspecting Mercury/Sun I felt he would find the solution, which he did. The problem was the new water cooling radiator fan, it draws so much power it left little to start the computer. :-)

On the other hand, it also looks like a lot of submerged shipwreck material is just emerging, or what you might call coming to a head, which is good because then it can be fixed, cleaned up, addressed.

Nothing so internal has been going on in my life. One thing that is going against the grain is that this period has seen an increase in clarity in some of my relations , but it has taken major arguments to break the barrier.

A friend's phone was fixed, while another's started to go haywire. Also I randomly encountered a former college mate who is still attending school. It feels like ages since I've been there. A lecturer also contacted me during the period, which was a pleasant surprise. He seemed to have founded a business in the interim so I'm curious to here more from him about that.

Contrary to the trope, this has been a progressive period for me in all things Mercurial. And the transit occurs in a sign where the greater malefic sits.

Re: How does Mercury retrograde affect you?

You know how they say don't travel during Mercury retrograde?

This time around, LOTS of people are having their travel plans interfered with by coronavirus: getting it, or getting quarantined, or, more common, trips getting canceled because of coronavirus concerns. My parents had a road trip planned, they were leaving this weekend, but they just decided not to go. They're not sick, neither are the relatives they were going to visit, but everyone's worried that the situation will get worse.

It will probably outlast Mercury retrograde, but I note that the bulk of cancellations are happening right now.

I didn't have any travel planned right now, so it's not affecting me so much as the people around me, although I am starting to hear about events I might have gone to being canceled.

Re: How does Mercury retrograde affect you?

This last station-direct was square to my sun-mercury. A number of times I had communication block from trying to communicate complex, sensitive issues with a bunch of unknowns. In certain situations, how you say something is just as important as what you have say. I just couldn't find the right strategic arrangement of words, so I evaded like a politician.
