I found this post in my notes file, and felt it may help us during this Mercury Retrograde….

After recently consulting with a client, I thought I might shed a little light on the “What to do” parts of this coming Mercury Retrograde on January 30, 2021.

Mercury goes direct on February 20, 2021.  The pre-retrograde shadow begins January 15, post-retrograde shadow ends March 13.


First: I know how I can be insistent with what I share… It’s only because I tend to offer what I cherry pick from what I “see” as the hard parts and the difficult choices; including troubling issues. This may be one of those times.  Mercury Retrogrades occur several times each year.

Save this post for future Mercury Retrogrades.



Update your anti-virus software on all devices.  Begin to review the spam folder in your email more often, at least until Mercury goes direct.

When you respond to email and anything online, resist the impulse to respond quickly. Check and re-check all documents, chats and posts before responding.

Do a quick check of your bill-pay dates, and whatever planned bills that will occur during this retrograde. Make sure you’re on track.

Check your accounts, for errors not made by you. They can get lost in the shuffle of a retrograde, and take a while to correct.  And check your bank accounts more often during this retrograde.


 Make sure your vehicles are up to speed with their maintenance schedules. If not, you have a couple more days before Mercury goes retrograde.. Don’t forget your vehicle inspection!

Update your TV software, as they could get hinky during the process… And we know that’s no fun.

Check your home security, making sure it works as expected.


Avoid (If you can):

Making big decisions.

Making big life changes.

Signing new contracts, buying cars/homes, etc…

Getting a new job

Starting a new business.


Be Aware:

There will be things that will require re-doing.

There will be delays.

And, there will be confusion.

It may seem as though you’ve begun speaking a different language, and some folks just don’t get you.

It’ll also be the reverse…

This retrograde will have us making a greater effort to be a “better” version of ourselves in order to get along.

Lastly, the rule of thumb goes like this:

Check and re-check, or you’ll find yourself with more do-overs than planned.


That’s my report.
