January 2016 Mercury in Retrograde
I’m sitting at the local coffee shop writing and researching for next week’s show tapings. I just left a small stack of Mercury in Retrograde calendars on the table, given to me by a friend who has a healthy respect for this astrological configuration- as do I.
Many years ago I had a friend who was a well known astrologer. Every so often I would tell her that my plans or projects had fallen through, so disappointing. Her response was inevitably “Mercury in retrograde!” Sure enough, it would be one of those 3-week periods of the year in which Mercury appears to be moving in counter rotation to Earth. Because I have learned to respect this period of time and thought I might pass along one interpretation of this month’s event.
