on
“Mercury is in Retrograde” has become, in my opinion, one of the most oft-used and misinterpreted of all the astrological catch phrases, almost as trite as “What’s Your Sign?” in the conversational collective.  So let’s investigate what it means when the planet Mercury goes retrograde.  Astrologer Kathy Biehl (EmpowermentUnlimited.net) writes most eloquently on the subject, […] [Read More]

The Unfamiliar Familiar
