MR record events:
WSJ A surprisingly resilient report on U.S. retail sales nudged the Dow Jones Industrial Average to its ninth straight day of gains, its longest winning streak in 16 years.
Check ZeroHedge for actual info, retails sales actually were DOWN yoy when UNadjusted.
Pope elected in record time 25.5 hours conclave. speed is MR, may be problemattic since during a MR.
Mercury Retrograde begins Saturday 2/23/13 at 4:41am EST.in Pisces. until 3/17/13
If you're a Pisces, you should feel it more, severity depends how close your birth/natal chart Mercury placement is to this MR which hits at 19º47'
About 10 days before, 2/13, there could be some early action beginning, an event of significance.
For those new or forgot, past MRs have had gold, silver, AAPL at all time highs, major and mini flash crashes. There usually is increased volatility, those doing TA, Elliott Wave, cycles, etc. may want to correlate what is expected from those during the main period 2/23-3/17/13.
I usually notice computer problems h/w and s/w, cable TV, internet outages,
Last one I had microwave oven die, fridge go haywire,
Always good to do a full s/w backup. Communications of all types can be affected so if you find difficulties at work, with people, on phone w/companies, in stores, don't get too upset.
Mercury is known as Quicksilver and this implies increase in speed, you may notice this feeling..
Recommended not to sign contracts, make major life changing decisions, etc.
Hope everyone is enjoying this MR. As we approach end of 2nd week, usually the most active one, we find DJIA at all time high. If this is MR influenced, fade s/begin next week, the last week for this MR.
