    The planet Mercury goes retrograde from 14 Feb till 8 March...

    In short this means....problems with technology (failure to work, crashes etc) and also miscommunications between people...

    Interesting to see that this site "went down" during this period

    We had two electrical appliances go BANG .... it always happens!

    Mercury rules the signs of Gemini and Virgo so people born under those signs or with those influences in their charts are more prone to getting into fights or disagreements than most...

    How interesting...the main hard drive in my boyfriend's PC crashed on Feb 22. He was *devastated*...it was like his house just burned down. I think he actually cried. But he was able to retrieve the most important files from it.

    And my iPod has crashed twice when I was attempting to upload some new songs.

    Sorry to hear that Puss

    The mercury ret happens three times a year,,,,will try and remember to post the next date...

    Ive noticed that message boards get very heated during these times...

    So its good to know why.....isnt it?

    We totally underestimate the power the planets have over us as human beings...people seem to know about the moon, but the others ones can be just as potent!!!!

    What does Mercury affect?

    In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, teachers, travellers, tricksters and thieves.

    Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry.

    It is therefore not wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is very likely that these decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde, these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual, as the critical faculties are dimmed. Make sure you pay attention to the small print!
