Mercury Retro and the US Elections

As November 2012 starts we find Mercury Retrograde from the 6th till the 26th, so almost all November will be a slowing down month. Mercury will go retrograde in Sagittarius (and later move into Scorpio). 

Please read below about planet Mercury and what Mercury Retrograde is. You will find more about your own sign in future posts.


Communication breakdown

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and the eighth largest. In Roman mythology Mercury is the god of commerce, travel and thievery, the Roman counterpart of the Greek god Hermes, the messenger of the Gods. The planet probably received this name because it moves quickly across the sky. Mercury is the planet of communication, negotiation, documents, travel and contractual agreements.

Mercury Retrograde?

Three, and sometimes four, times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky for a period of approximately 3 weeks. Mercury is retrograde from November 6th to 26th, 2012. When Mercury is in retrograde, communication can seem to slow down and decision-making is challenged. It is not advised to sign contracts at this time. This period is best used for re-organizing and reflecting, thinking at what can be done better in a project, in a contract. It is not a good time to start new things; just try to reflect and put everything in order in your life. Rethink the old strategy; consider new ways you can look at the same problem. Slow down and take a deep breath and very important: don’t act and talk too much at this time. After this period is over, your priorities will swing and new conditions will come into action. It would not be wise to shop for expensive holiday gifts this month. Back up files, phone numbers in your cell phone, and keep a close eye on any item that you will feel you are going to lose this month. 

US Elections, Romney, Obama, Leo, Pisces

Interesting Fact!

The US Presidential election will take place on the evening of November 6, the very date that Mercury is turning retrograde and that will make this date a heavy one. Mercury retrograde is very strong on the day it goes retro. So, we will see an influence of miscommunication, recounts of votes, broken machines, and legal issues on the deciding day for the US. We have a Pisces born March 12th… meet Willard Mitt Romney and a Leo born August 4th … meet Barack Hussein Obama II.  This is a battle between a very strong Fire Sign, the Leo and a very mild and ambitious Water Sign, the Pisces. Let’s see who wins this J !
