Mercury Retrograde in Taurus - Variable Day

Current cycle:  Mercury Rx 4/28/2016 – turns direct 5/22/2016 9:20 AM eastern time
About three times a year the planet Mercury slows in orbit and assumes apparent retrograde motion.  It is in the sign of Taurus which deals with financial matters and personal resources, so this is a good time to take stock and make adjustments. Since Mercury governs all forms of communication, written and oral -- this is not the time to sign contracts, purchase or sale agreements, leases or anything else of a legal nature because there will be hidden complications. Mercury's province extends to communications equipment which often malfunctions or breaks down during this cycle. So it’s best to delay the purchase of new equipment until Mercury is direct.
Since Mercury is the planet associated with thought, decisions, and all things analytical, it’s no wonder mistakes occur while Mercury appears to be going backward.  Indecision, miscommunication, faulty facts or reversals are common during this cycle. Moreover, information can be inaccurate or incomplete. Hence, more delays.
If it is necessary to make a commitment or final decision during this cycle, it will be revisited at a later date.  It is, however, a good time to re-consider, revise and review all your options pertaining to the matter at hand.
