It is important for me to know when the planet of communication, which includes computers, emailing, telephone messages, and just your basic “please pass the salt”, is retrograde.
Why? Just because. I mean, if Mercury is retrograde, then I know it’s not just me.
It’s going back to whatever “normal” means on May 11th. Good luck and good night.

The messenger planet’s backward turn marks a three-week period when double-checking data, maintaining equipment and communicating carefully are recommended. A tendency to make more errors than usual is common during this cycle. Yet the gift of Mercury retrograde is that it provides a second chance to reconnect with people and to tie up loose ends. Completing unfinished business and reviewing systems to make them more efficient are constructive uses of this transit.
