A fresh take on surviving Mercury retrograde—and an illuminating guide to how Mercury shapes our essence, from communicating to relationships
Mercury—it’s the planet that rules communication. And when it goes retrograde, all bets are off. E-mails disappear, flights are delayed, trains run late. We’ve all experienced the utter havoc of Mercury retrograde. So how do we survive it, sanity and relationships intact
Now, in The Power of Mercury, acclaimed astrologer Leslie McGuirk casts new light both on Mercury retrograde—treating it as an opportunity to slow down in a tech-crazed world—and on the tremendous role Mercury plays in our lives. With a fresh sense of humor and uncommon helping of straight talk, McGuirk dispels the mysteries of Mercury by teaching us how to:
- Flourish during Mercury retrograde
- Identify our personal Mercury signs and those of friends, family, and colleagues—and why they matter
- Learn how different Mercury signs communicate with each other, for better or worse—and what to do about it
In an era in which we e-mail, text, chat, and tweet hundreds of times a day, the stakes for any glitches in communication are higher than ever. Finally, with The Power of Mercury, we have the fresh, direct guide we need to navigating it all without stress—and with a much needed dose of optimism, common sense, and style.
