Don’t let Mercury going retrograde ruin your month
Avoid Mercury retrograde pitfalls
Mercury is the planet of communication and travel, and when it’s working well, so are those areas of our life. However, three times each year, Mercury turns retrograde, appearing to move backwards in the sky - and our lives can feel like they are in reverse gear too! There’s an increased likelihood of miscommunications and misunderstandings, machinery is more prone to breaking down, and there are more travel disruptions. But forewarned is forearmed, and with Mercury’s next retrograde period between 26 July and 19 August, astrologer Jane Dimond explains how to sidestep its pitfalls and keep your life running smoothly.
