Mercury Retro Series (a.k.a. the Mercury Retrograde Survival Kit)

Since I find myself often writing to correct lots of misperceptions about retrograde planets in general, and Mercury retrogrades in particular, I've decided to assemble all of the links to previous posts on the topic in one blog post, so that I can easily refer to them in the future.

So here they are in (almost) chronological order, and are probably best read in this order.

1. Retrograde Schmetrograde 
2. Retrograde Planets
3. Retrograde Planets: What to do?
4. Not Again With This Retrograde Thing! (Not Really, Read On...)
5. Mercury Retrograde - Again
6. Here We Go Again
7. Retrogrades and the supposed "Shadow"
8. Harping on Mercury

Thanks so much for this! I often feel like a lone voice crying in the wilderness about Mercury retrograde.

One of the irritating things about modern astrologers is that they are so sure they understand why everything is happening. "Oh, that was Pluto sesquiquadrate my progressed Black Lilith" Of course they can't predict anything in advance, but have incredible 20/20 hindsight.

People just can't stand having their Mercury retrograde taken away as an excuse. "Oh, I can just feel Mercury retrograde" but not Mercury in Pisces, Sagittarius, combust, etc. Hmmmm....

Anyhow, keep it coming!
