Finding and purchasing your dream home can be a stressful experience, but can the answers you’re hoping for lie in the stars? From Mercury retrograde to the lunar cycle, there are plenty of ways to determine when exactly you should take specific steps toward purchasing the luxury home you’ve always wanted.

You’ve probably heard the term Mercury retrograde in negative connotations here and there — some people believe that this period is a harbinger of bad luck, upheaval, and chaos. In reality, all that Mercury retrograde means is that it’s a time of change and review, not necessarily good or bad! 

Mercury will go retrograde about three or four times per year, which simply means that the planet will appear to orbit backward. Because Mercury represents intellect and communication in the world of astrology, many star-savvy individuals believe that social and interpersonal interactions will go haywire during this four-week timespan.

From a real estate standpoint, it’s actually a great idea to get your home inspections done while Mercury is retrograde. Sure, it can be a chaotic time, but when during the home buying process is it not? 

Often, Mercury retrograde can cause the revelation of secrets and hidden information — maybe your home inspector will find something crucial that needs to be repaired or uncover some important details about the home that were previously unknown to you. Don’t be afraid to let Mercury guide you through this tumultuous time. After all, this is the part of the home buying process when you want all hidden information out in the open!

You can also look toward the lunar cycle as you prepare to purchase your new home. In astrology, the moon is actually considered a planet — and not only that, it’s one of the most important planets in the solar system. Two parts of the lunar cycle are crucial: the new moon and the full moon. The new moon marks the beginning of the lunar cycle, and then continues to grow (or “wax”) until the full moon. These two phases are intense and charged with energy, making it a great time to release all contingencies to the seller. The new moon and full moon are known for being excellent times to take major steps forward.
