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.
Did this MR happen last June by any chance? i’m an Aquarius and my husbands a Sagittarius. we had a fallen out and it has affected my life tremendously. were still together but i don’t have that connection with him as i once did. we been married 39 yrs. in August, but been together 45 yrs. just wondering.
HI Cupatea WOW I am sorry to hear that. That can be so anoying.
I AM seeing bad luck Grandson sprained his wrist he is 10 freak accident. My husband broke an ankle and sprained other ankle is in a rehab. Everyone PLEASE be careful and Please stay healthy . I could tell so many other stories but wont.
This is amazing! Wish I would have seen this thread 3 weeks ago when it started. This week alone we have had several very large accidents with lots of cars & tractor trailers on the interstate where I live 10 minutes from!!! Very strange. I am glad I only had 1 appointment which was this morning before I read this & luckily I haven’t done anything other than started eating healthier which I don’t consider dieting & have been driving only to my usual appointments. Faire- I do need to go to that Astro site you were referring to as I am not at all familiar with this. My sign is Cancer but I do not know about all this rising stuff, etc. I find this fascinating, hope you will print some more. Thank you for this great read 🙂
You have explained this perfectly. I am familiar with the retrogrades of Mercury too. I have been trying to lay low as much as I can. Yet I have had to do somethings and yes what a time of mix-ups and things going wrong. Yes from purchases of appliance items and having to send things back. Then the replacement comes in. Then trying to get the item hooked up and oh my goodness. Hours of trying and frustration.
Even some projects I have tried to finish. More frustration. Oh my.
Thank you for posting about the Mercury Retrograde. I never look forward to when Mercury retrogrades. In the zodiac Mercury is my planet and I take many a deep breath till it passes.
Your HSN friend,
I just returned from an overseas trip that started before your warning went into effect.
On my way back, the aircraft was half empty, and I slept most of the way comfortably stretched on the 4 seats that were all mine (at my height, there is even a bit of length left there). So it actually went super well.
On my way from JFK though, the train came an hour too late. I guess that was still the fallout of the train crash in Philly which I apparently passed about 7 hrs before the crash on my way to JFK. This sort of thing does give one a bit of a pause, even though 7 hrs is not THAT close in time.
I checked in at the hotel only to discover my reservation is messed up.
I reserved the executive with two rooms. I was given one room.
It took 5 minutes with dumplin at the front desk to get it straight.
Is it my imagination or are problem solving skills something that seems to be diminishing?
Thank you again Dear FM, my doggy stayed home, and I did go and cancel something that was purchased on a whim, luckily it was in advance for another month, Again Thank YOU:)
?´¯`*•.¸¸?FM, Ms. Jules, I was upon impulse taking Dude to be groomed today, I normally do once a month, He’s a Pap, so hubby and I said let’s take him, he ran under the bed, and would not come out. ?´¯`*•.¸¸?This is not like him, he only takes for under the bed, if there are boombers, and storms, so he’s not going, I remembered this, and I love my furbaby to much. Thank You ~ Ms Jules, I put something I really don’t need, and beyond my budget right now, going for a walk on the interenet to cancel for another good day.
Thanks so much for reminding me, and FM, I can feel something was unsure within myself, the double scorpio has been digging me while I sleep. Thank YOU Again
?´¯`*•.¸¸? so nice to have friends on here ?´¯`*•.¸¸?
I ended up canceling an order I placed after I read this. I almost forgot about it. It’s going to be hard because there’s a clerance event going on right now.
This was great fun…well, sort of…anyway, any time you want to post something like this, I for one would truly enjoy it…
well, I would enjoy it more if it was good news but it was still lots of fun, informative and it seems many enjoyed it.
So a big thank you for you!
