Anyone involved in communications can attest to periods of time--lasting about three weeks, three to four times a year--when even the most simple messages seem to be wildly misinterpreted. Also during this time, mechanical and electronic things tend to break down "out of the blue." An astrologer will tell you that this happens when Mercury is retrograde--a phenomenon that almost everyone's heard of but nobody really understands. Robert Wilkinson offers the inside scoop on Mercury retrograde, teaching you how to play it to your own advantage. He also offers ways to value Mercury retrograde people, projects, and situations to make the best of Mercury retrograde energies.For astrologers, Wilkinson describes a wide variety of ways a retrograde Mercury may manifest for each sign, and provides lists of characteristics showing how the energy "behaves" in the signs and houses in natal, progressed, return, and transit charts. Wilkinson helps the rest of us understand why people born during a Mercury retrograde think and act the way they do, and how to interact with them productively. And for celebrity hounds and history buffs, he includes a list of famous people born during Mercury retrograde; information about world events that occurred during Mercury retrogrades in the last 150 years (revealing some thought provoking patterns); and an ephemeris of Mercury retrograde periods for 1900-2035. This book will prove as relevant 50 years from now as it is today!
This literate new understanding of one of the most intriguing and widely talked about concepts in astrology shows how Mercury retrograde can help rather than hinder us. In the same way that people who are not interested in astrology know what their "sun sign" is, Mercury retrograde -the thrice yearly cycle when the planet Mercury appears to run backward in its orbit-has migrated out of the astrological ghetto to become an expression in everyday life. According to the astrological interpretation, this is a time when everything associated with the Greek god Mercury-contracts, travel, communication, and commerce-seems to run backward with the planet. The Internet crashes. Cars break down. Words can wound or are misunderstood. It is considered an especially poor time to make large new purchases or enter into new agreements. In Mercury Retrograde, spiritual journalist Pythia Peay unveils the period's deeper meanings. By working with the slower pace of Mercury retrograde, rather than going against it, we can allow ourselves to step outside the narrow framework of our ordinary lives. Rather than push forward, it is a time to retreat, if possible, from the usual harried, hurried way of doing things. In a book that includes a Mercury ephemeris and an astrological glossary, Peay traces the history of this powerful concept and illustrates its mythological underpinnings. She offers a practical, incisive analysis of how Mercury retrograde can be a tool for growth and insight into our fast-paced contemporary existence.

A lively guide to surviving and thriving during Mercury Retrograde—and to unlocking the astrological secrets of Mercury, the planet that rules communication.

From communication mishaps to travel breakdowns, Mercury Retrograde wreaks utter havoc on our lives. So how do we survive it, sanity and relationships intact? In The Power of Mercury, acclaimed astrologer Leslie McGuirk casts new light on Mercury Retrograde—treating it as an opportunity to slow down in a tech-crazed world, from approaching agreements with caution to communicating with intention. With an unparalleled sense of humor and uncommon helping of straight talk, McGuirk further dispels the mysteries of Mercury Retrograde by teaching us how to identify our personal Mercury signs and those of the people with whom we interact every day, from bosses to romantic partners—and what that means for how we communicate, and what to do about it. In our ever increasingly tech-driven, fast-paced world, where we all email, text, chat, and tweet hundreds of times a day, and zip around the world at a moment’s notice, the stakes for any glitches in communication are higher than ever. Finally, with The Power of Mercury, we have the fresh, direct guide we need to navigating it all without stress—and with a much needed dose of optimism, common sense, and style.

Approximately four times a year, Mercury, the planet of communication, goes retorgrade and chaos ensues. Written in a lively and entertaining style for the astrological layperson, this work is completely devoted to this astrological phenomenon.
Traditional chart interpretation regarded a retrograde natal planet as being weakened, but many of today's astrologers have different opinions: the planet's energy is more internalized or strengthened, or causes delay or confusion. To illustrate, retrograde Mercury causes mail to be lost, appointments to be missed and a general breakdown in communication. Helen Adams writes: "For far too long retrograde planets have been misunderstood or not understood at all . . . retrogrades are not really all bad!" Here she presents a guide to interpreting retrograde planets in the natal and progressed chart as well as by transit. Also included is each retrograde planet's relationship to health.
