To minimize frustration during this period:

  • - Avoid making big decisions or signing contracts.
  • - Finish half-done projects. Rather than taking on something new, tie up any loose ends.
  • - Hit "save" on your computer frequently & back up files.
  • - It's a great time to research making a significant purchase such as a home, appliance or a car, but don't put any money down yet.
  • - Have a sense of humor. Mercury is known as the "trickster" & problems you encounter during this period probably aren't as dire as they seem, & may vanish when it moves forward!
