ARIES - "I AM, THEREFORE I AM."
Mercury will turn Retrograde on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 8:19 PM EDT until April 15, 2018 at 5:21 AM EDT. Mercury actually enters its pre-shadow period on March 8, 2018 when Mercury in Aries is at 04 degrees 46 minutes. Mercury will then turn Retrograde on March 22, 2018 at 16 degrees 54 minutes. When Mercury turns Direct on April 15, 2018 it will have retrograded back to 04 degrees 46 minutes where it was on March 8, 2018. So the BIG QUESTION MARK IS, what was occurring on March 8, 2018 that Mercury is taking you all the way back in time to DO-OVER? From the time period when Mercury turns Direct at 04 degrees 46 minutes, up until May 3, 2018 when Mercury reaches 16 degrees 54 minutes, where it was on the date Mercury Retrograded on March 22, 2018 that time period is the post-shadow phase. So on May 3, 2018 Mercury will complete it's zippity-doo-dah back and forth over the same degrees three (3) times, but again the time period of Mercury Retrograde is actually March 22, 2018 until April 15, 2018. It's the time period before and after these days that involves Mercury going back to 04 degrees 46 minutes and getting back to 16 degreese 54 minutes that makes us keep a watchful eye on Mercury until it has completed its run.
During this time, as usual, you should wait to make any BIG purchases that Mercury rules either in Gemini or Virgo. Mercury in Gemini rules such things as gadgetry, computers, automobiles, communication devices and booking travel. It would also be wise to wait to sign-up for any workshops, classes, lectures or educational programs. If you have a test during this time and it was already planned before Mercury Retrograded, then I wouldn't work about it. Mercury in Virgo rules health, hygiene, fitness, nutrition, physical health, engineering, accounting, computing and any detailed work that requires a critical eye. Since Mercury rules communication in health, it would be best to wait to have any surgeries or even doctors appointments until Mercury gets back to its self, which is after May 3, 2018.
