More Do’s and Don’ts for Mercury Retrograde.

Back in August I did a very popular post about some of the things you can do during Mercury Retrograde and I listed a few things to try to avoid doing. And because you asked, here are some more do’s and don’ts.

Going back to school: If you are signing up for a school program that will cost you thousands of dollars then it’s best to avoid the Retrograde period. You could end up regretting your decision. If, however, you are already signed up and the classes begin during the Retrograde that’s fine…but go early because you will have trouble finding a parking place.

Moving from one apartment to another: If you move your residence during a Retrograde then you will feel compelled to move again on a subsequent Retrograde. Retrogrades happen three or four times per year so you could end up moving once a year for several years, or worse just wishing you could move but feeling stuck. There are a couple of solutions to help you feel more settled. First try to write the initial lease so that it ends when Mercury is moving forward (i.e. not Retrograde). And also when Mercury does go Retrograde spend a little time redecorating the apartment and moving furniture around. This change of the energy in the apartment may keep you from moving.

Changing banks: Whenever you do something involving paperwork and your money it’s best to avoid Mercury Retrograde. If you must then I recommend making photocopies of everything that you give to them, have the bank give you a copy of anything that you have signed and go through your first bank statements carefully. Also make a note of when you are supposed to received ATM cards to make sure they come.

Paying off a credit card: This is a positive thing to do on Mercury Retrograde because the energy of releasing yourself from debt can be repeated on future Retrogrades. And if you can’t pay off a debt during the Retrograde it is still beneficial to pay extra to reduce the debt.

Seeing a dentist: Sometimes you just have to see a dentist during Mercury Retrograde. Usually this is because you have been putting it off and now the pain is too intense. Mercury Retrograde is notorious for bringing us what we had been avoiding. If you’re in pain then you must go to the dentist during the Retrograde, and most likely two visits will be necessary. If you are going for a regular cleaning try to schedule it away from the Retrograde period so the dentist doesn’t find another reason to have you in for a second appointment.

Getting a traffic ticket: I had a client who received four traffic tickets in one day. It was Mercury Retrograde and the loud voice of the Universe trying to guide my client to pay more attention while driving. If you get one traffic ticket during Mercury Retrograde you have a very strong energy around you for getting a second ticket within just a few days. So drive carefully.

Getting your contract at work extended: If you’re a contract employee and the company extends your contract during the Retrograde it is quite likely they will extend it again. But I had a client who was extended but didn’t get the second extension because she had received an extended contract a year before at a different company. So she had two contracts and two extensions and that satisfied the Retrograde energy. If that’s your case then it’s best to polish up the resume because Mercury Retrograde brings things in even numbers not odd.

Doing a mailing to clients: Despite all the things that can go wrong during Mercury Retrograde it is worth the risk to do promotional mailings during Mercury Retrograde. Because Mercury can double things, if you get a new client you will get a second. Also new clients who start with you on the Retrograde are very likely to come back as repeat customers.

    How about losing a twenty year job during Merc ret? Due to restructuring? Will I be offered old job back? How about sending resumes during ret and looking for work?

    • While you may not be offered the old job back you maybe offered a different position within the same company or be offered the same position with a different company. Unfortunaly, losing a long term position during mercury retrograde can indicate the job was in jeopardy previously and this retrograde completed the energy. In other words, there may have been several times the company considered eliminating the postion and so when it was reviewed during mercury retrograde it’s elimination was decided.

      As to finding a new job, it’s fine to send resumes and interview during mercury retrograde. However, be aware that mercury retrograde can mess wtih communications. Always follow-up after sending the resume to make sure they have received it. Always check twice about the date and time of the interview. And then try not to begin the new job during mercury retrograde because in future retrogrades the position could be easily eliminated or you may have second thoughts about working for the company and want to find another job.
