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.
Add ‘don’t take your pet to be groomed either’ to your list!
Took my cat…most awful cut I have ever seen!!
Supposed to be lion cut with short plume on tail…they left about half her tail still on so it looks silly.
Cuffs around ankles/paws…they look like tall boots as they didn’t shave them down where they should be.
Ruff at neck is crooked.
Back cut too close showing skin that looks like long scars down her back.
Then to top it all off, they said she wasn’t happy (guess not since one of their personal dogs started barking the minute I went into the place and was still loose and barking when I left) and I know she was scared.
She is such a tiny little girl and now she looks absolutely awful! $75 for this???
I love this farieMaiden, thanks for the headsup. Please post more.
Hi all, I saw this thread before, but read it just now. I had a TV on today and one of the daytime shows sold 4K dvd players and TVs. I could not help it and kept laughing. There is NO 4K content as of YET. I know it for sure because I was considering purchasing a 4K TV from local retailer a few days ago. NONE, except for a cool demos that come with devices. Why would one buy a device that cannot be enjoyed to its full potential at premium price? in several months prices will be halved. Mercury Retrograde, indeed.:smileywink:
Oh No! I already have a surgery scheduled, and a trip in September which I just found is also Metro RetroGrade. If the surgery was already scheduled, and time off work already taken off and approved. is this a issue.. now im freaking out…. its suppossed to be on June 1st
Hi there again, FaireMaden, I am so enjoying your thread, am wondering if you do this for fun, I know when I had my chart done it’s very intricate checking out where all our others signs, I have to dig up my chart, hope it lasted through the hurricane sandy, unsure. I know I had a lot few in Cancer, I am married to an Aries, lol. I believe I have some signs in Cancer, but I know I am not a Cancer definitely, my sister is. Do you know her walk resembles a crab, seriously.
I know what Scorpio’s are capable of, what direction they like to go, that part of me is very investigating, and always reading, I seek every direction for knowledge. It’s why I had to obtain so many degrees in education, and still seeking, but not at this time. Thank You, I have found myself from a child to now, as a caregiver, very adventurous in mind, no fear of opening a business, and try to stay level. I am going to look for my chart… I see Happy Birthday is in order …Wishing Pixie a very happy Birthday with many more beautiful and blessed days for You:) Pixie:)
off to look for my chart:) thank you again FM, xox td xox
Faire is being married alright?:womansurprised:
I booked a hotel a little over 1 hour from the house. I will go shopping. There is an outlet nearby.
A nice lake is about 20 minutes away from the hotel.
I looked at the hotel site and called in to book because I had questions about an upgrade.
She quoted me a much higher price for the stay. I told her I could book it cheaper on the hotel
I was told to book it myself, and the price would be honored.
She was right! :womantongue:
I would also say do not start a job. I started the job I have now on 02/25/2013 the start of Mercury Retrograde.
The experience has been like walking with one tennis shoe and one high heel. :womanfrustrated:
Well, I had to buy Adriennes Skin Spa Home Facial Kit with RTC Capsules. With the price that it is including the serum and capsules, coupon 154614 of $15.00 off plus I had $5.00 spendable kash and 4 flex I couldn’t pass it up. And 30 days to return if I don’t like it.
But it’s still the 17th my time so should be ok!! But thanks for the warning. Hmm and would battery operated be considered electronic??
This is freaking me out. my anxiety is in overload right now:(
Hi Beautiful FM,
Can I travel to the beach 5 hours away? If not, how about the lake 1 hour away? I could rent a hotel room close to the lake, but that is not my preference. :womansad:
I have asked for a couple of days off after the holiday.
Thank you Faire Maiden! This is certainly something to think about.
?.•**•?THANK U SO VERY MUCH for your help, I was very involved with ASTROLOGY, have had my yearly done in New York, by Kenneth Dickerson, he was right on with me. I found it extremely fascinating. Wow, this was so long ago, I know he’s passed by now, yet he was wonderful:)
I don’t feel like your typical scorpio, double no less, I am way to easy, I wear my heart on my sleeve, people hear I am scorpio and they think I am going to sting. I am soaring always, not ready to sting anyone, yet your time of birth has a lot to do with it, plus you always have the way you were taught, development in young years of personality, and coming from a strict Italian upbringing, not many believe, and I just chuckle:) THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH:) You are very informative, and on the money. I enjoyed this:) td
Very interesting FaireMaiden. Thank you for the info. I will try my best to follow it. My gut feeling
tells me if I do it will be smoothe sailing for me.
?.•**•?Hello there FaireMaden, interesting, very…. This has to do with Alignment of Mercury? Wondering what sign you are, if you don’t mind, astrologically? Double Scorpio here with LeoRising, Thank You, I see some turbulence already, with my niece wanting to call off her wedding over nonesense, and he’s avoiding her now too:)?.•**•?TD, have a great day, and thank you for your information. Do you know anything about biorythms? just curious, I follow mine:)?.•**•?
