BUYER BEWARE! Mercury Retrograde May 18-June 11: What NOT To Buy!
MERCURY RETROGRADE is starting tomorrow, Monday, May 18th and will last until Thursday, June 11th.
WHAT NOT TO BUY, OR DO, ON A MERCURY RETROGRADE
DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING ELECTRONIC Computers, Tablets, Televisions, Radios, Stereo Equipment, Cameras, Phones, Appliances, (Washers, Dryers, Refrigerators, Microwaves, Stoves, Crockpots, Toasters, etc). Anything that is run with electricity and/or has electronic chips/processors in them, (which, nowadays, includes almost everything), SHOULD NOT be purchased on a Mercury Retrograde.
DO NOT TRAVEL OR MAKE RESERVATIONS This includes Airline, Train, Bus, Cruise Tickets, Hotel Reservations, Excursion packages, etc. etc. If it can at all be avoided DO NOT TRAVEL, even by car, on a Mercury Retrograde, nor make future travel plans on a Mercury Retrograde. Of course, one has to live! *lol*, but be extra careful when driving around town. YOU may be a great defensive driver, but others are not. Be especially alert during this time as accidents abound while Mercury Retrogrades. Why? Because Mercury rules both cars and travel!
DO NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACTS! Buying a house, Selling a house, Lawsuits, Any kind of Loan, (College, Car, House, Credit, whatever). Do not place an Ad in the paper. Do not List stuff for sale on Ebay, etc. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING until the Retrograde is over. I cannot be emphatic enough about this!!!!!
DO NOT HAVE/SCHEDULE SURGERY, ETC Of course, this speaks to Elective surgery; any kind of surgery that is ‘scheduled’. Emergency Surgery is a different story. This admonition also goes for Dentistry. If it can be ‘scheduled’, don’t have any work done during a Mercury Retrograde; nor, schedule during a Mercury Retrograde any future work to be done. Wait until Mercury goes Direct to make appointments.
DO NOT START ANY NEW PROJECTS Exercise, Diet, Kitchen/Bath Redo, tearing your car apart and replacing with a new Transmission/Engine, etc. Don’t start a new Learning program/Educational classes. Don’t try a new Recipe. Don’t even try a new Restaurant! *lol* Don’t have new Carpet/Flooring installed, Roof repaired, etc. etc. WAIT until Mercury goes Direct on June 11th.
MERCURY RETROGRADE is a time to lay-low, take a breather, relax, THINK about future plans NOT take action on those thoughts. It’s a time to make sure that all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed before signing on that dotted line. It’s a time to get your ducks in order, double-check everything, let every contingency come to light BEFORE signing on that dotted line or taking action on any new projects.
It’s an adult TIME-OUT. And, while often frustrating because we feel like a charged-up horse being held at the gate, this time is SO conducive to putting our best foot forward to ensure that the wonderful plans and expectations we had in mind are actually fulfilled without extra cost, time, effort, and aggravation. June 11th is when the gate will open again and we can run like the wind to fulfill our dreams.
Don’t forget that it works on children too. You may find them more cranky, demanding, and frustrated at this time; which just so happens to be the perfect time to teach, and experience, PATIENCE… theirs and our own.
Remember, ‘For every thing, there is a Season’.
Mercury Retrograde IS NOT the Season for any ‘thing’, any ‘action’; it is only for dreaming our future. Get those dreams firmly in mind. Dream of how wonderful, beautiful, and happy this ‘dream-come-true’ is gonna make you. And, when the gate opens again, THAT is the time to then MAKE IT HAPPEN, MAKE IT MATERIALIZE.
The last MERCURY RETROGRADE of the year will take place from Thursday, September 17th to Friday, October 9th.
Sorry to bring this up, but was just wondering how everyone is doing after this MR? if you’re here FaireMaiden:) i hope you’re toothache is gone., and hope things turn for the better soon, for everyone that this has affected. stay well:)
This is the count down………………… :smileylol:
:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
Thank god it is Thursday the 11th. I did not have the time of my life.
Hope everyone is well.:smileyhappy:
Oh Faire…just read that you have a toothache.
I am soooo sorry to hear that you are going through this. I am terrified of dentists!
Hopefully you will be better soon. Just know we are sending you good healing thoughts. Take good care.
Hi there FM, HOW ARE YOU? toothache, so sorry, ouch, use salt water, warm tea bag, than honey it worked great for me. I hope this helps you so much, was glad to see your post up, and wow you have been right on the $$ with this. You are Fantastic, I bought nothing regarding electronics, put away over 5 things, figured they could wait. Although needed a top, it arrived, horribly stained, and used. I should have thought before ordering, got the double whammy end of this. Since, ordered something else, it came broken UPS said call them, it was like this.
My niece born early Sept, still arguing with her fiancee, he’s Scorp. I told her to wait this time out maybe past the weekend. ??? thank you, you are delightful and I enjoyed your great help. You are very Wise:) loved this post td xoxo
Remember me telling you about taking my cat for a lion cut and how badly that turned out…
Well, she ran out the door (sneaks out any chance she gets) and didn’t come back until late in evening. Covered with stick tights things in her fur then noticed she began to drag her leg/foot.
Couple of hours later she was hiding and couldn’t walk very well and wouldn’t move around.
Next day to vet, she had been bitten and infection had set in. Antibiotics and pain killers…and hope they work or it is surgery. $100 so far but she is my angel so worth it…but now she is grounded (well as much as I can with her sneaky self).
My question to you is – do you have tips astrologically speaking for pets?
This was so enjoyable for me anyway re Mercury Retrograde and thank heavens it is over tomorrow!
Thank you for sharing.
HI FairMaiden.,i was just wondering how you’re doing with your tooth ache? can’t wait until tomorrow for this to be over:( take care everyone:)
Wow… thanks for the reminder!
My hubby is getting ready to book a trip for our family in December… I’m not sure I believe this info, but I also don’t want to ignore a warning. I know of several people who have had problems sleeping the past 2 nights.. could be the Mercury retrograde, or that its really getting hot where I live.
Thank you Cupatea.
Faire Maiden….this is almost scary, but all makes perfect sense.
Now, I have a question…..last weekend I purchased a new air conditioner for my son and daughter-in-law as their EARLY Christmas gift. It arrived on Thursday. After reading this, I told my son that I can’t give it to them until after the 11th…haha…..seriously, do you think that will be ok. I would feel really bad if something went wrong with this 🙁
Thanks for this post it’s all so interesting. I’m a cancer July 20th) and that fits me perfectly but I believe i’m also on the cusp of leo which I see some traits there also. Will this help 🙂 Lady Luck ?!?
I received a gift card for Amazon and I almost ordered a Mia Clarisonic. Then I remembered about the Mercury in Retrograde so I will wait until later. It will give me more time to research and look at other items too.
Saturday, June 6-2015… Well, you’re all not alone in having things go kaflooey! Yesterday, I woke up with a toothache, and there’s nothing for it but to go to the dentist. I called for an emergency appointment, and they squeezed me in at 10:30am. I get there and, based on both our past experiences with this kind of pain, we pretty much determine I need a root canal.
So, he takes me over to get an x-ray and, guess what?, the machine goes completely berserk… making weird noises and then shutting down completely… it’s busted. And, why not? Mercury Rx is squaring both Neptune of photography and the 6th House of dentistry, opposing Saturn of injuries, sesquaring Uranus the disruptor, and inconjuncting Pluto of complications. Sheesh!
Needless to say, he was upset, having to call to get the machine repaired or replaced, and having his ‘girls’ reschedule all his appointments.
As for me, I rescheduled mine for June 15th. He gave me prescriptions for an antibiotic and enough pain pills to get me thru to the 15th. THAT’s Mercury Rx for you!
After I returned from my trip, I took my car in to my mechanic. It was discovered that there was a nail in my front passanger tire. I am so happy I did not take my vehicle for the longer trip, and I opted to take the 1 1/2 trip for my vacay. :womanvery-happy:
Is it Friday the 12th yet?
Thank you so much for this informative post! I cannot overexpress how pertinent it is to my life right now- it seems I have stumbled upon this at the correct time, especially the points regarding signing contracts and making travel plans.
I have been stressed about some deadlines (June 17th), and will use the time from today until the 11th to really figure out the crucial details and think about options. I will take action on the 11th or 12th. This makes sense for my life and especially in light of your post.
