During "Mercury Retrograde" periods there is an inverse relationship between hurrying and true accomplishment of an event. No matter how hard you strive to reach the goal, you shall be left further backwards only.  In practical terms, it is a good time to finish old business. It's a excellent time to reconsider, renew, review, reconcile, re-explore .

    Any unfinished or unsuccessful project of the past can be now brought to the forefront and given a new fresh try. Get rid of old junkbe it personal or job-related. This is a good time to return to procedures that worked well for you in the past. This is also a highly auspicious time of year for success. And, since the planet Mercury has an affinity for the winds, we can expect stormy weather and wind patterns to change on or around the beginning and ending of Mercury Retrograde Periods.

When a planet appears to moving backwards in the zodiac belt, it is said to be "retrograde." This takes place when planets are far away from the sun and closer to the earth. Retrograde planets indicate a zig zag pattern of energy and a need to take one step back before taking two steps forward. When a planet is retrograde there is a re coil at work. Retrograde planets represent lack of perspective and diminished perspective. Things don't always come fast when the associated planet is retrograde, but it doesn't mean total denial of something.

Retrogrades have a triple cycle. There is the period before retrograde, then the retrograde period, and finally the period after retrograde. These are the relate, regress and revive periods.

   The relate period begins the last time the planet was at the direct position and ends when the planet goes retrograde. The regress period iswhen the planet is retrograde. The revive period begins when the planet goes direct and ends when the planet returns to the retrograde starting position.What has been realized during the relate period will be retraced during the regressperiod and repaired during the revive period.
