Mercury Goes Direct

If communication and travel have been crazy these last three weeks, fear not, life should be getting back to normal soon.

Since November 24th, Mercury has been retrograde. The small but super-fast planet has been moving slowly, making the world that much more complicated for us here on Earth.

When Mercury lags behind the Earth we often find ourselves confusing messages, retracing past errors, or having to do new things over and again.

Travel can get messed up, with increased incidents of car trouble, flight delays, or subway standstills. But in the end, everything usually works out just fine.

As does most of the trouble appearing during a Mercury retrograde, whether it’s lost emails, hard-drive crashes, or misplaced cellphones.

For all the confusion it can cause, Mercury slowing down isn’t always so bad.

It’s great for clearing through old tasks, and working through details you might normally miss.

And at least in my life, it’s usually a time for catching up with old friends who seem to appear out of nowhere and disappear as fast.

Whether it’s been a good retrograde for you, or just one giant challenge, it’s over for now, not to return again until March 12, 2012.

If we think of Mercury from a Tarot perspective, the Magician has finally stopped running backwards.

He’s zooming forward ahead, still in Sagittarius, but now at full speed towards the future.
