Mercury Retrograde & the Void-of-Course Moon
Definition: When the Sun makes its orbit around the sun, the planets appear to be going a certain direction in space. When the earth reaches a certain angle (apogee) in its orbit, then those planets will appear to be backing up in space instead of going forward. The planets are not really backing up, but the earth's orbit is going faster than their forward motion in space.
The planets energy is inhibited during this period. Outcomes may be different than expected. Errors are more likely and so is mechanical breakdown.
Mercury Retrograde creates indecision and changes in plans. It requires caution and orderly thinking. It is a good time for research, planning, examination of resources, completion of projects already begun. Mercury asks us to go back to old ideas or plans from the past.
If you have Mercury Retrograde in your chart, you will experience more of a free flow during those periods. There is a small percentage of charts that have Mercury Retrograde. However, these natives can begin projects with improved success.
Since the moon is not making connections/aspects, it is difficult for us to make connections as well.
