On Mar. 5, the planet Mercury goes retrograde for the first time this year (which basically means it looks like it's spinning backwards from here on Earth, although it isn't), and things will seem out of whack.

Mercury retrograde can cause general communication issues, and can affect everything from your relationships to your travel plans to even your tech items. Luckily, there are a few ways to protect yourself from Mercury retrograde you should know about.

There are certain things you should avoid doing during the Mercury retrograde period, but there are also a few ways to get ready for that time before it happens so that you can miss any potential disasters.
