On October 28, 2006, Mercury, the cosmic magician, turned retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of the Scorpion, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup!
This awkward period began a few days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and will last for three weeks or so, until November 18, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.
Everything finally straightens out on December 5, 2006, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. Mercury turns retrograde three times a year, as a rule, but the effects of each period differ, according to the sign in which it happens.
November is going to be a bad month (Hence no further tasks for a few weeks).
So beware of misunderstandings with friends or lovers; communication problems, problems with phones, computers and transport. All of these usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry.
It is therefore not wise to make important decisions in November, since it is very likely that your decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking!!!!!!!!
You've been warned!!!!
