Animal Fair Media’s Feline Forecaster here, with a roaring Mercury retro astro update … Yippee! Mercury goes direct today January 25th, 2016. Give it until tomorrow to move full speed ahead! Meow – woof!
So, what does it mean for you and your pet when Mercury is retro? Animals pick up on the energy in their environments, absorb and react to nuances in situations. Your pet will naturally be picking up on the retrograde, with or without any influences from you.
This Mercury retrograde was in the sign of Aquarius and backed to Capricorn! You might have found your pet getting a little more fussy and eccentric in behavior when it comes to toys, routines, and even the food they like! Even if they’ve happily been chowing down on the same brand for years! Speaking of pet food and supplies – try to stock up. If you live in NYC, the pet food/supply delivery truck in Montana gets stuck with four flat tires minus backup (definitely a Mercury retro thing), and delayed for a week! You get the pet picture…
Your normal routine with your canine or kitty purrhaps will be disruptive at this time. A calm dog might refuse to walk the same usual path, and veer left with a jolt instead of right. The usually silent cat suddenly becomes overly vocal with unreasonable meows, and rambunctious for no apparent reason. Meow – dog treats, cat nip, and toys will help save the day during the Mercury retro time!
Now for all you human cats and dogs out there, this is not the best time to launch all your new concepts and business projects. A few days prior to a retrograde period (only through September 16th); backup computers and double check all travel reservations. When the retrograde is active give yourself more time to get to the airport, expect delays in phone, snail mail and email messages, try not to sign on the dotted line with any new binding contracts or business launches (if you have to – read the fine print and opt for a renegotiation clause). Don’t – breakup with your sweetheart while in this phase, you might regret it later!
Mercury rules the mind, during the retro don’t make snap, impulsive, or consequential decisions. Do the “re-re-re” retro dance – research, reflect, rethink!
Whether you believe in astrology or not, the term Mercury retrograde has become a popular global mainstream point of reference. Quite frankly, it can be a frustrating time when all types of communication slow down, defunct, and lose momentum. Historically for centuries – presidents, royalty, scientists and captains of industry recognized astrology and took note when Mercury went retrograde.
One of the smartest scientists to walk our planet, Albert Einstein appreciated astrology and affirmed:
“Astrology is a science in itself, and contains an illuminating body of knowledge.
It has taught me many things, and I am greatly in debt to it.”
The beauty in knowing Mercury is retrograde, is also knowing that it won’t last forever! This astro transit happens 3-4 times a year. Just remember to remain as patient as possible, be Zen and even then count to ten … your pets will love you for it.
MEOW, BARK, PURR & ROLLOVER!
