IMG_273110/21 Mercury goes retrograde at 6:29 AM Eastern time.

Since Mercury is in Scorpio, expect more than the usual old stories and mysteries to get unearthed. Mercury retrograde coupled with a void of course Moon* could add delays to your early-morning commute. The moon does leave the void when it enters Gemini at 12:14 p.m. This may occur in tandem with excitement for some reason (although clarity as to why may still be in short supply).

Expect a particularly challenging time; avoid any important appointments. Do your best not to be in transit with a tight schedule.

If this can’t be helped, recognize that patience is your best ally.  Be very careful with any communications since people are extraordinarily vague. Best intentions may lead to even more confusion as people assume they know what the other is doing. Tempers may flare in the evening. Stay alert for drivers with short tempers if you’re on the road.

The Gemini Moon is at its best when it’s able to cycle through thoughts and cover a lot of ground quickly. Because of Mercury’s station retrograde there will be limitations, possible power outages and delays. Don’t let frustration get to you! ©Cucinell 2013 – all rights reserved

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Taurus, relaxation is demanded. You can try to accomplish a big task, but that couch looks awfully inviting. Give in and let yourself enjoy a leisurely lunch and your productivity will increase afterwards.
