May 18th to June 11th.
Mercury starts retrograding on May 18th.. We should put off starting any new projects until after June 11th when Mercury is no longer retrograde. It’s a good time, though, to reevaluate and work on old projects. We should also delay buying appliances or cars because even new items may be lemons and break down. Be prepared for cancelled appointments, mail that goes missing, wrong information, and people saying things they don’t mean. It’s not a good idea to sign contracts. We should be aware that words can hurt and learn how to control ourselves. If you travel during this time, make sure your vehicle is in good condition and be willing to adapt to new contingencies along the way.
