Tips for how to have Mercury retrograde savvy:

 

 

#1  Flexibility

For instance, I had multiple requests for schedule changes the moment Mercury turned! No problem - I’m flexible and can go with the flow :).

 

#2  Double checking everything for mistakes

A stereotypical Mercury retrograde experience happened to me today - I found two sources of data for void-of-course Moon times different from my ephemeris (a calendar of the calculated positions of celestial bodies), making me think my ephemeris was wrong, only to later discover that the two other sources, though consistent with each other, were both incorrect! 

 

#3  Patience and trust when it comes to important communication

Mercury retrograde corresponds with revisiting and reviewing... The information, clarity, or opportunity to clarify that you’ve been waiting for may very well arise now as Mercury goes back for a second look.

 

That’s a good start. I would love to hear your experiences or tips!
