On January 28th, Mercury began its retrograde in Aquarius. That means it's time to do all the usual Mercury Retrograde stuff like backing up computers files, avoiding signing contracts if possible, going over the fine print on everything. Move slowly, avoid multitasking, and assume everything you say will have to be repeated at least twice. Get a translator for any instructions you may need to decipher. Read those last few sentences again. And remember that this retrograde will give us an early opportunity to reassess our 2008 goals and see if we need to readjust our targets. Mercury will move forward again on February 18th.
And today (January 30th) Mars turned direct in Gemini. I actually cheered. This Mars Retrograde beat me up a little - got sick twice, low energy the rest of the time, so not fun. It's amazing how a retrograde period can show you how the energy of a planet manifests in your life, though.
