May 18—Mercury goes retograde
Mercury is “The Thinker,” and involves our communication skills: what we say, our words, our voice, and our thoughts, including the Teacher/Student, Master/Apprentice mode. Mercury affects how we connect with all the media tools of the day—our computers, phones and even the postal, publishing and recording systems!
