(Mercury retrograde starts today:) The Dos & Don'ts Of Surviving Mercury Retrograde [View all]

Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop, or station, and spin backward otherwise known as retrograde. Of course, it really ISN'T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that Mercury, is in this case, going backward.

In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks, with today (Jan. 21) marking the beginning of the chaos.

To top it off, Mercury retrograde also has what's called a "shadow period" so you may have already felt the retrograde a couple weeks before and after it actually happened.

So how NOT to have a nervous breakdown?
