Mercury Retrograde (April 21st to May 15th, 2023) can definitely have its challenges, but it’s important to remember that it’s also an opportunity for growth and reflection.
Mercury rules the intellect, discrimination, communication, language, learning, youth, friends, and recreation. When retrograde it disrupts the flow of Mercury’s normal energy, which affects the house that Mercury occupies, causing it to not function at full capacity. The houses that Mercury ‘owns’ will also be weaker.
During this time, we can take advantage of the slowdown and reevaluate our communication styles and how we’re approaching our relationships with friends, family, and colleagues. It’s a chance to refine our language, clarify our intentions, and deepen our connections.
And while it’s always wise to double-check communications and documents during Mercury Retrograde, we can also use this time to practice patience and grace with ourselves and others when misunderstandings do arise.
So let’s embrace this upcoming Mercury Retrograde and use it as an opportunity to slow down, reflect, and realign ourselves with the energies of communication and intellect.
Mercury Retrograde isn’t a one-size-fits-all celestial event – it’s unique to each individual based on their birth chart. So, it’s time to take a deep breath and prepare for what’s to come.
