Mercury goes into retrograde

Mercury went into retrograde Tuesday morning for the first of four times this year and it goes direct again on Jan. 25.  Some people freak out because, in astrological terms, Mercury rules truth and clear thinking. Therefore when Mercury goes backward, astrologer George Courtney says it can warp good communications.

George adds that it's all relative. Planet Mercury's just moving forward in its orbit around the sun while appearing to go backward from our point of view on Earth.  People react to Mercury retrograde differently. 

But Mercury retrograde really seems to have gone beyond the point where anyone argues about it anymore.
