Mercury Retrograde happens 3-4 times per year. It is when the planet Mercury looks like it is moving backwards from our point of view on Earth. It is not actually moving backwards, it is an illusion of the planet moving backwards. 

Mercury Retrograde is about to be full swing. Many people may already sense some issues with communication, electronics, travel, auto issues and general chaos. We believe Mercury Retrograde is a time to be creative and listen to your intuition. We also believe in preparing for whatever is thrown your way.
