When Mercury turns retrograde, we generally encounter a higher than normal occurrence of disruptions, delays, breakdowns and upsets in fields relating to and involving communications, from transportation to negotiations. Typical Mercury Retrograde situations: labour disruptions and strikes, rallies, marches, protests, breakdowns in negotiations, labour relations and peace talks, computer hardware and software crashes and slowdowns, loss of mail, loss of luggage while travelling, car problems, delays in receiving mail and communications…
As the year winds down, there can be a call to reflect on the learning and the growth experienced during the year. The Personal Year numbers can be used as signposts along a road map, indicating trends that last one calendar year. Each of the 9 years has its own climate and tendencies.

I had just stepped into the bath, a daily ritual of sorts, or perhaps more of a treat; a hot bubble bath and a good book to read. I had patched up my crumbling copy of The Third Eye by Lobsang Rampa with a few strips of navy blue electrical tape and a strip of packing tape to hold it all together. With a little bit of tape to secure the loose page that slipped out when I opened the cover, it would be as good as new, I thought, glad to have hung on to this work.
