“Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.” Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“Mercury turns retro in Capricorn today at five degrees.”

“Please, would you kindly repeat that for me? You say that the mercury is reading what? Five degrees?  It feels more like about 70 in here to me.  Unless, I’m having a hot flash. Your mercury in your thermometer must be wrong, lady.”

“No, I’m not talking about the temperature. I’m talking about the p-l-a-n-e-t Mercury. Mercury goes retrograde in Capricorn today, at five degrees. Near malefic Pluto and hotheaded Mars, which means…”

“I’m sorry. But, I still don’t quite understand you. You also appear to be moving your upper right lip kinda’ funny when you speak. Are the planets making you do that? Or have you been, perhaps, hanging out with President Obama? Please, if you could. Repeat whatever you are saying, just one more time. The point you are making about the hot temperature on Mars is what? And how does it affect our hair?”

“Not Mars! Mercury.  I was talking about M-E-R-C-U-R-Y! And, nothing about the temperature, or our hair! Mercury the planet, up in the sky, is going retrograde! :)

Yes, a sweet, nauseating preview of possible coming attractions the next 20 days as communicator Mercury, which also rules travel, goes retro, or seemingly backwards in motion, until Dec. 30th.

Mercury retrograde is a period of routine maintenance for our minds, diabolically visited upon us by a wicked cosmos.

It is set aside as a period for us to “review” and “reflect” upon our earlier thoughts and decisions, with a probable eye to “revising” whatever it is that we originally hatched or incubated inside our moist little reptilian brains.

Mercury retrograde characteristically correlates with misunderstandings, or general mental confusion. So it’s always a good idea to clarify and double-check things, especially travel plans. Also, we may want to double-check the thermostat. Just in case.
