Veteran astrologer Robert Wilkinson brings his authentic wisdom to bear in this look at the dreaded Mercury Retrograde.
Wilkinson covers topics ranging from an introduction to Mercury; what Mercury Retrograde means; he explores the "bad" reputation of Mercury Retrograde and then goes into excellent detail about how Mercury Rx manifests in signs & houses in natal, progressed, transiting or return charts. Also discussed is how Mercury Rx periods influence different signs and the book ends with an interesting selection of famous Mercury Rx people and historical events that occurres during Mercury Rx periods.
While clearly aimed at people with some knowledge of astrology, the text is easy to understand while giving wonderful insights into the different facets of Mercury Rx. Interested amateurs (such as myself) and professional astrologers alike will benefit from the information in Wilkinson's book.
"A New Look at Mercury Retrograde" is a great addition to my astrology library and I'm sure that I'll be referring to it in future, not only to gain insights into Mercury Rx transits, but also when exploring my progressed or return charts.
