Here are my top 3 tips of things you should avoid when Mercury goes retrograde

You want to avoid purchasing any techy products during Mercury in retrograde. So that includes cell phones, computers, televisions, tablets, and even cars! Any electronic product with moving parts is subject to have defects that you may not discover until later, thanks to Mercury in Retrograde.

Mercury rules travel over short distances, so when it goes retrograde, it can cause your travel plans to be thwarted in unexpected ways. I know sometimes it's not possible to avoid necessary travel, so go if you must, but just be prepared to be flexible and roll with the punches. Plan for extra time, even an extra day of travel if you can, in case there are delays in your travel plans due to Mercury in retrograde.

Mercury rules communications, so when it goes retrograde, things tend to get lost in translation. If you enter into a contract during Mercury in retrograde, there are likely to be misunderstandings about what each party thought would occur under the terms of the contract. If you absolutely must enter into a contract during Mercury in retrograde, please make sure the parties to the contract have had a crystal clear meeting of the minds, to avoid any confusion down the road.

Stick to these top 3 tips for what NOT to do during Mercury in retrograde and you'll be able to avoid the frustration that can sometimes accompany this celestial cycle that occurs 3 to 4 times every year.
