We all have times when it feels like nothing is quite going right. Perhaps you’ve scheduled an important meeting that that gets cancelled at the last minute; or your computer and other electronic equipment keeps freezing. You know the feeling?

You just can’t help but feel everything is going against you. These times in life often occur during a mercury retrograde.

A Mercury retrograde happen when, from our perspective here on Earth, the planet Mercury appears to be moving backward. This generally happens three times each year and lasts for about three weeks. Many who follow astrology dread a Mercury retrograde.

Of course these periods do serve a useful purpose; we just have to know how to deal with them.

Many people feel that a Mercury retrograde not only affects what’s going on in the world around us, it also affects what’s going on inside us. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on your health when a Mercury retrograde is headed or way. There are many things we can do to make sure that a Mercury retrograde helps, rather than hurts our health, and here are a few of the big ones.

1. Don’t Schedule Any Surgery

If you have a major surgical procedure coming up, make sure to check on the dates of oncoming Mercury retrogrades.

Try to schedule anything invasive and complicated for at least two weeks before or after a Mercury retrograde period.

The reason being, Mercury retrograde is known for causing problems with technology, electronics and most forms of communication, all of which are, of course, very important elements of a successful surgery. Although we can’t plan for an emergency, any surgeries that can be planned for should be scheduled with Mercury retrogrades in mind.

2. Plan a New Health Regime

Mercury retrograde is all about gathering information and thinking about how to move forward, not necessarily about action. So, you may be feeling the urge to get started on a new fitness plan by jumping into it head first. And, you may be feeling a little trapped by the sensation that everything is slowing down.

Rather than denying these forces, simply use this period to plan instead of to act.

Creating a great plan is one of the best things that can be done during Mercury retrograde, especially if it is something you have been meaning to do. Tying up all those loose ends is one part of what makes Mercury retrograde so beneficial.

3. Review your Past Health Test Results

Because Mercury retrograde is all about retreating to the past, this is the time to gather together all that information you’ve been missing.

If you have had health tests that you never called in for, this is a great time to find out those results. It’s also a good time to take care of minor health concerns that have been bothering you, or your loved ones have been asking you to get checked out. Have those blood tests, make that appointment at the dentist. You get the idea.

When a Mercury retrograde occurs remember to tie up loose ends and you will be better off for doing so.
