Mercury will Station Retrograde on 9:45 pm PT on September 6th

This begins a period when communication breaks down, so be extra careful when getting directions or giving instructions. During this period, cars, phones, tvs, and all forms of communication devices are more likely to fail, so I always recommend getting anything fixed that may have been giving you problems or showing issues of wear. This is a great period for fixing all form of communication equipment, as well as re-negotiating contracts.

Reconnecting with old friends, and old neighbors is also part of this particular Mercury Retrograde period.

It is best not to purchase cars or any types of communication devices during this time since it is more likely you will get a lemon. However if you must do so, make absolutely certain to get a solid warranty and purchase from a merchant you know you can trust.

If you must sign a new contract, take a new job, or start a new lease at this time, you can expect to renegotiate at some later point, usually during the next Mercury Retrograde, which starts on December 26th.

Finally if you should lose your job or end a relationship during this time, that may not be the final word. You may very well be called back either during this retrograde period or the next.
