Does Mercury Retrograde cause things to go bump in the night (awry)? Yes, it does. There is a real meaning for Mercury Retrograde. It means you have to slow down and pay attention at a deeper level of your consciousness. You must review, re-evaluate-, reconsider, redo, re-assess and then integrate the new perspective(s) you were able to achieve.
So, how can you keep up? You learn to use the Cosmic Clock of Mother Nature’s Planetary Timing. Study Mercury Rx. The Shadow period of REVIEW begins on the 27th of March, 2017. During the REVIEW period we are often confronted, or made aware of scenarios that can help us expand our limiting perceptions.
MERCURY RETROGRADE 09 APRIL TO 03 MAY 2017
27 MARCH ~ 24 ARIES 16 ~ BUMP REVIEW TERRITORY BEGINS
09 APRIL ~ 4 TAURUS 51 ~ RETROGRADE
03 MAY ~ 24 ARIES 16 ~ MERCURY DIRECT
20 MAY ~ 04 TAURUS 51 ~ NEW TERRITORY REVIEW ENDS
We are offered a change, a chance to open our minds and embrace a wider view of the world around us. As we successfully learn to navigate the shadow periods, journaling our daytime experiences, keeping a dream journal, as well as recapitulating any glitches or prickly encounters, we can see where we might have some work to do when Mercury actually does station and turn RETROGRADE.
All the RE words: Aries/Taurus In order to collect the Reward of the Retrograde Planets…
ARIES = Self Actualizing TAURUS= Self Worth

Review Recapitulate Rewind
Now Mercury will help us integrate how to apply these changes. Whether we made monetary choices, perhaps on how to earn our money, or how to share, include, and enrich ourselves and others, the Rx of Mercury is the time to implement the changes.
Remembering that all Retrograde periods are a healthy dissatisfaction with the status quo, do not be afraid to look at your bottom lines. Where are you compromising? Where are you too puffed up as you individuate? How could you do more to help the collective?
