Apparently people are panicking because Mercury is seemingly headed in an opposite direction. Planets normally head across the sky from west to east, but when they reach a certain point in their orbit they look like they are heading in the opposite direction. In the case of Mercury, because it has a faster orbit than Earth, that happens nearly four times a year.

Astrologers are warning people that things will go wrong when that happens. Don't sign contracts, don't negotiate deals, don't try to link up with a new person ......
Don't buck for a raise or promotion.

You know what?

They're nuts.

Astrology is proven bunkum. A load of hooey. Anybody who believes that stuff is a fool, and has a lot in common with most imbeciles. Their stupid hat is too tight, their sunglasses have cut them off from daylight too long, their brains are soft and porridge-like.
And probably smell overcooked.

No, I shall not posit any arguments whatsoever to prove my point, because I do not wish the fools to change. In their present overwrought state they are the perfect victims for whatever nefarious schemes I may yet dream up -- haven't started yet -- and if all goes according to a plan I still need to formulate, they will fund my retirement.
While thanking me profusely.

In a truly just world, astrologers, palmist and tarot readers, homeopaths, anti-vaxxers, new-age healers, and other charlatans, would be thrown in jail, along with most diet-gurus and members of congress.

Keeping track of Mercury retrograde periods can allow you to increase your productivity and avoid at least some of the frustration they can bring about.

Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.

Included under this planet's domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get scrambled or spin out of control.

Why does this happen? When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury naps, the activities that it governs don't have the benefit of a well-functioning, wide-awake planet to supervise them.

Since Mercury rules the mail and the conveyance of information, be extra careful when sending important documents. If you send faxes, be sure to call the people at the other end to let them know your documents are waiting for them. Otherwise, they may never see it. If you work in an office and have to photocopy an important document, be sure to retrieve the original. Be equally careful about whom you send email to - you don't want to send a private email to the wrong person or have a sensitive email forwarded to others.

Astrology: it's the gluten-intolerance of superstitions.
