Astrology is here to help us, but we really have to be practical about it.
Even if you know nothing about astrology, chances are you know something about Mercury Retrograde. Most people dread it because there is so much emphasis on the potential for things to go wrong. Communication problems abound during Mercury Retrograde. As a matter of fact, one of the most touted pieces of advice surrounding Mercury Retrograde is to avoid signing any major contracts during that period because there could be a misunderstanding or the deal might not go through.
Other advice warns against travel and making big technological purchases. But again, in the workplace is that practical? What if your laptop stops working? Are you really supposed to wait until Mercury Retrograde is over before replacing it?
The truth of the matter is it’s not always practical to work around Mercury Retrograde. Sometimes you simply can’t wait two to three weeks to move forward with business. And everyone that you work with will not be open to putting off a business deal because of an astrological forecast.
So what can you do? Pay more attention to your interactions and don’t be afraid to ask for clarification if there’s any confusion in a conversation that you have with someone. If you have to sign a contract, it might make sense to have a second set of eyes look things over. (It wouldn’t hurt to do that in any case, but particularly during Mercury Retrograde.) If you make large purchases, make sure you ask whether you’re covered is the item stops working. This might be a time when you spend extra money on a warranty so if there is a problem with a tech purchase you’ve made, you’re good.
Despite the fact that we often hear about what we shouldn’t do during Mercury Retrograde, it may not be practical for one to simply put things off and avoid moving forward because of it. However, consider its possible impact and try to minimize Mercury Retrograde’s effects as much as you can.
