Oh the dreaded Mercury retrograde.
If you know anything about astrology, you may be familiar with Mercury retrograde. All of the planets are constantly in movement, which affects us astrologically. At times, every planet goes retrograde, meaning it slows down and appears to move backward in the sky. For some reason, Mercury seems to affect us more when it goes retrograde than other planets do.
During Mercury retrograde, people often experience delays and miscommunications. If you’ve been on the brink of signing that major contract, don’t be surprised if the deal suddenly falls through. Or if you think you’ve aced that job interview, don’t be surprised if the position is suddenly put on hold.
Relationships can also take a hit during Mercury retrograde since there are often communication problems. You and your partner may find yourself not seeing eye to eye. Or a simple text message could be misinterpreted causing a major blow-up.
Another problem people often run into during Mercury retrograde is the breakdown of electronics or appliances. You may notice your computer freezing more frequently or your car may stop working.

Since so many problems seem to take place for people during Mercury retrograde, it’s not unusual for someone to feel confusion or frustration at this time. That could lead someone to consider speaking with a psychic.
For some, speaking with a psychic could prove to be helpful. For example, a psychic could help calm your fears if he or she can see past the delays that are caused by Mercury retrograde. A psychic may also give you some advice on timing. For example, it might be better to postpone major purchases or contract negotiations until after Mercury retrograde if it is at all possible. A psychic could also shed light on your relationships and help you to see that a misunderstanding is not as serious as it may appear to be at this moment.
On the other hand, some may find that they don’t need the advice of a psychic at this time since problems might automatically begin to clear up once Mercury retrograde is over. By understanding that confusion is normal at this time, you’ll likely feel better about it and accept it, knowing that clarity could be right around the corner. It’s also a good idea to refrain from reacting to situations too quickly. Again, understand that misunderstandings, errors and delays are normal and will often clear up over time.
