Have weird things been happening to you lately? Has your computer or phone been acting up? Well, there could be a reason for that: Mercury is in retrograde. If you’re new to astrology you might be wondering what it means for Mercury to be in retrograde. Well, it means that the planet Mercury is moving “backwards” when spied from Earth. It also means that everything we normally do, our regular order of things, can be thrown off or delayed. We aren’t exactly working on our normal schedules. Seeing as though it is Pisces season this means it can be a very emotional time seeing as though water signs are emotional beings. The way we process emotion can and will be altered.
During this time, it’s important that you don’t try to begin new or important projects. Additionally, don’t make important decisions. If you find yourself having to, then make sure you sit down and truly think about the possible outcomes. Remember that your emotions will be affected heavily during this time. Often our emotions drive our thoughts. This can also cause you to be very confused and unable to communicate effectively. Don’t make rash choices and try to communicate clearly.
Luckily, retrograde will be coming to an end today, March 10th so hold tight. We can look forward to the next one from June 18th to July 12th.
