CHICAGO - May 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Find out more about Mercury retrograde and how to make the most of this special time when noted Chicago astrologer Anne Nordhaus-Bike returns to Frank Fontana’s “Design Dude” show on WGN Radio AM 720 Chicago this Saturday, May 31.

“Mercury is the planet closest to our Sun and moves very quickly,” Nordhaus-Bike explained. “Three times a year, it appears to slow down and then move backwards in the sky. Although it’s not actually moving in reverse direction, it looks like it is, and this phenomenon is called ‘Mercury retrograde.’ During these retrograde periods, everything governed by Mercury—including thought, communications, phones, computers, cars, gadgets, contracts—can go a bit haywire. Although these breakdowns in communication and technology can feel frustrating, they offer a good reminder to slow down and re-think, review, and re-do anything in these areas that needs change or improvement.”

Mercury will be retrograde when the season changes June 21—bringing summer to the northern hemisphere and winter to the southern hemisphere. “That makes this particular Mercury retrograde a great time to ease into the new season,” Nordhaus-Bike added. “Simply slowing down and re-thinking what’s most important at home and in our communications can help us all enjoy the new season and make the most of its weather and other special beauties and pleasures.”
