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.
Hmmm…on Tuesday my cat gets her ‘lion cut with plume’ haircut, ears cleaned, bath, nails clipped and I have to drive her to her beauty appointment…hope this is okay but sounds iffy…
Will let you know how it goes.
She so loves her ‘do’!
I don’t know much about the above….I am not superstitous. But I do know one thing. Only purchase what you can afford. Do not charge up your credit cards beyond your ability to pay it off each month.
I will take your advice into consideration. BUT, if they put the Bose Radio on sale on May 29, I’m throwing caution to the wind and buying one! lol 🙂
