Mercury Retrograde March 12 to April 4, 2012

Mercury Retrograde


The planet Mercury and ruler of transportation and communication turns retrograde in the fire sign of Aries, on Monday, March 12, to April 4, 2012.

Mercury in Aries tends to be bossy, pushy, rash, impatient and insensitive.



The planet Mercury the “messenger” planet rules thinking and perception and all types of communication and transportation.  When Mercury goes retrograde it gives rise to personal and business misunderstandings, flawed and disrupted negotiations, delayed communications, breakdowns with computers, cars, phones, busses, trains and airplanes.

Mercury rules people who work in the areas of communication, transportation and commerce, such as: writers, speakers, commentators, critics, public relations, advertising, air traffic controllers, and teachers. 

Gemini and Virgo are signs ruled by Mercury, so if you were born under one of these signs, you will be complaining especially loudly. 

During a Mercury Retrograde it would not be wise to begin a new project.  This is a time to get your mind and thinking in order, a time to contact people from the past, perhaps a past client.  This is a perfect time to update your resume, and reconnect with people who can help with your job search.  Listen and learn.


Below is a short list of things you can do during a Mercury Retrograde:

  • Check all matters of communication twice for mistakes.
  • Keep your cell phone charged
  • Check your travel plans twice.
  • Do not check your luggage when flying.
  • Double-check all your appointments
  • Ask questions and listen.

Mercury Retrograde gives us a great opportunity to slow down and reflect.

A classic Mercury Retrograde hit professional golfer Jim Furyk at The Barclays tournament in August of 2010.  He over slept and was disqualified from The Barclays Golf Tournament.  Ouch!  Always have a back-up and double check everything during Mercury Retrograde.
