mercury in retrograde

Mercury in Retrograde makes many people all nervous.   It doesn’t have to be a time of worry.   This is why I write about each time it comes along.   Just as a heads up — it is back starting on August 23, 2023!  This time there will be a total of 7 planets in retrograde.   It has already started with the pre-phase.  Retrogrades help us go within, go with the flow, reconsider.   It is a great time to do research.

This Mercury in Retrograde will occur in the earth sign Virgo.  So all my fellow earth signs hold on to your hats.   Every time it happens in an Earth sign it seems to shake me.  This is a good time to slow down, double check contracts, make sure you are not ignoring any maintenance on anything to do with transportation or communication.  Which, by the way can be affected when Mercury goes into Retrograde.   Mercury in Retrograde is a time for deep reflection and contemplation.  It is always a good idea to be aware of the times this happens.

Like all retrogrades of Mercury, you will experience either the best or the worst.   Which means you may have something to laugh about or you will learn a meaningful lesson.  Retrogrades are a time for the three Rs: Review, Reflect, and Reassess.
