What is Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury retrograde is when the planet Mercury appears to slow down, go backwards in the sky, slow down and begin to move forward again. This is only a optical illusion that happens three to four times every year for approximately three weeks at a time per cycle. Mercury retrograde is what astrologers refer to as a transit and is a classic example of Astrology in its simplest form. It was said in ancient times that the planets in the sky affect us here on earth, "As above, so below". This is a pattern in Astrology and your personal horoscope.
The planet Mercury takes approximately 88 days to travel through the 12 signs of the zodiac. In astrology, Mercury is the ruling planet of the zodiac signs Virgo and Gemini which represents all forms of communication, speech, reasoning, travel and writing. Mercury also rules over technology, electronics, social media, music and short trips. All the planets go in retrograde motion during their transits through our solar system. Like all planetary transits in astrology, Mercury retrograde will only affect you if you have these signs, planets and degrees in your horoscope. Each time Mercury goes retrograde through a sign it influences us with the characteristics of that zodiac sign. When Mercury is retrograde in Gemini or Virgo it affects our speech, communications and generally makes people more critical than at other times.
What to expect when Mercury is Retrograde
During this time you can expect cancellations, missed or garbled messages, texts, phone calls, communication breakdowns, vehicle, electronic, computer and device problems. If you purchase a vehicle, computer, device or electronic item at this time you may find the item to be faulty or a lemon. Save your money. Travel plans are more prone to delays or complications and major moves may be regretted later. Mercury retrograde also brings out con artists, liars and thieves. Keep this in mind at this time and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Beware of scams, shady sounding deals or someone promising you the Moon. You may notice for yourself that you experience these things around you. Watch for computers, electronics and vehicles not operating properly, cancelled appointments and people promising more than they can deliver. Watch what you say during this time.
Mercury retrograde is not a favorable time to sign important documents, contracts or to make major life decisions. It is not a favorable time to marry, begin a new job or to move to another country. Business, travel and communications will run much smoother at that time. Don't worry, surviving Mercury retrograde is easy and it is a wonderful time for a redo. Re-calibrate and restructure the things in your life holding you back.
