I personally get a little tired about hearing the same old same old about how Mercury retrograde wreaks havoc on all things communicative, mechanical, etc. Truth is, every Merc Retro has a different impact on us depending on our individual birth date/time. I think by virtue of their relationship, Gemini does fair the worst/best with Merc movements, but there will be similar results for those with Gemini placed prominently in their chart. For me personally, some retrograde periods are lucky and a breeze and others quite negative. I confess I look forward to the backside of these retrogrades, no matter what. With Mercury direct as of 11/01, I am hoping for one last big bang with 718/1718/5718 which have been all over the place these past few weeks, except DE
Speaking of planets retrograding, a biggie looms on the horizon - Mars will retrograde roughly 11/15. Mars is the planet of action (and war). Some of us will get a lot done and see enhanced personal achievement during this period which ends in 01/08. This retrograde will be lining up with a touchy, sensitive side of things - coinciding with the holidays it will make travel, especially driving, a time to be more cautious. Mars only does this about every 2 years and may force a little excitement on us whether we want it or not.
Have you heard the astro buzz about November 8th and 9th? Lots of dreams to come, good intuition time, and hopefully some very good numbers....
