Have you noticed that things are going a little haywire right now? Are others misinterpreting your communication with them? Have you noticed people being a little passive aggressive lately?

If so, then you just may be in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde!

What Is Mercury Retrograde?

Mercury Retrograde happens about 3-4 times each year and lasts for up to 3 weeks. It happens when Mercury slows down its normal counter-clockwise rotation and appears to almost stop. It can appear as if Mercury is going backward, but it isn’t in reality.

What Is Mercury The Planet Of?

If you’re familiar with Mercury, it is the planet of communication, travel, and technology, which is also the access to some knowledge and information. When Mercury slows down, then the things that it usually governs doesn’t have the help of Mercury so it starts going haywire of how it usually goes for you.

Normal days are interrupted with blockages, delays, and sometimes misinformation. People are quick to jump to conclusions without investigating into the matter. If you’ve had this happen before, then it doesn’t feel very good! If you have gotten upset with people during Mercury Retrograde, it’s important to sit with the issue and seek the enlightened perspective before responding. This way you can respond from your truth and to help resolve the matter, to avoid getting into a conflict that might have no resolution or growth.
