When Mercury appears to move backwards in the heavens, a time of introspection is upon us. Things we may have overlooked will be revealed; unfinished details or business seeks our attention. Slow down, pay attention to specifics, contemplate.
Mercury generally moves retrograde twice a year, for about three weeks each time. Below is poem about Mercury’s retrograde movement – written by my mother Peg Radcliffe, a long time ago.
"When the library sends reminders that the books are overdue, and the ink dries in my fountain pen to a sticky residue, When my all-time favourite movie is promised on TV and they substitute the programme with re-runs of Dynasty!!! When the cheque that I’m expecting doesn’t turn up in the post and the car starts acting funny and then gives up the ghost . . . When the Refidex is missing and I’m searching high and low and I cook a six-course dinner and my sister doesn’t show. When they disconnect my telephone because the bill’s not paid, I reach for the ephemeris and Mercury’s retrograde." Peg Radcliffe
