Should I Schedule Surgery With Mercury Retrograde?

mercuryI’m often asked if it’s okay to schedule surgery with Mercury retrograde.  I answer this question on a case by case basis. Generally speaking, it is not a deal-breaker for me.

I say this because Mercury is primarily concerned with timing and communication. Cutting of any kind is a Mars function. 

I mention this now because I scheduled surgery this month, with Mercury retrograde.  It’s a revision of a prior surgery so I thought that fit.

Yesterday, the surgeon’s nurse called to tell he the doctor had a cancellation and they could move mine up, if I wanted. This led to a flurry of conversations and phone calls. Twenty minutes later, I agreed to the new day and time.

I think is is a good example of rolling with Mercury retrograde.  Ultimately your mortality is not in your hands anyway. Posting this to let you know that I will disappear sooner than I thought, but be back sooner than I thought.  As far as I’m concerned, it’s wash.

What’s really disabling is the worry and anxiety that Mercury retrograde can cause. If you have to circle the block a few times before you can park your car – so what?

I have an appointment to have an alignment on my car, I’ll have to cancel. See how this works?

  1. It’s funny you post this, Elsa as I just realized I booked for a small derm surgery in mid-November. Ouch, hopefully it won’t be bad. ?

  2. Thank you Elsa!!! My daughter is having an ablation on Nov. 8th on her tubes due to endometriosis. I told her not to worry about Mercury R. I wish you well on your surgery and a very speedy recovery!!!

  3. Prayers for a successful surgery and speedy recovery!
    And I did ask this question before undergoing my surgery in May except it was about a full moon, transits, etc. I am so happy I took your advice and proceeded.
