Mercury Retrograde is here again for it’s third and last visit this year. Mercury is the planet that seems to have the biggest effect on people and when it turns retrograde, even those that don’t believe in astrology find it difficult to deny it’s powerful influences. The most noticeable problems will occur in communication, technology and travel plans.
What causes these mental-communications problems to happen when Mercury goes retrograde? The planet Mercury rules our intelligence, mind, memory and, all types of communication ranging from talking and texting to writing. It also affects our self-expression, and communication style. In a more public sense, it rules commerce, computers, telephones, transportation and air travel. It’s time to double check everything, pay attention to details and back up your phone and computer.
During these three weeks when Mercury is retrograde, get ready for communications of all types go “bonkers!” Suddenly, normal communication becomes unreliable, filled with misinformation where important data is missing or misunderstood. The passage of information from one person to the other seems to be unintentionally cloudy or confused in some way. After all, Mercury does rule the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression and overall communication. Throughout the Retrograde period, a person’s intellectual, communication and mental processes are less acute. They become mistake-prone, confused and forgetful.
What’s Unique About This Retrograde?
Each Mercury retrograde has a certain character based on the sign that Mercury is in when it goes retrograde. This retrograde is in the sign of Libra.
Normally when Mercury is in Libra, communications between people are likely to be social, charming and diplomatic, leading to win-win negotiations. But since Mercury in Libra will be retrograde, we are likely to see more than usual disagreements between lovers, bad news about the economy that shakes up the stock market, and relationships of all kinds will be strained.
Stay calm, grounded and centered through this time period and it is a great time to review, reflect and renew anything in your life!
