You might have heard the term Mercury Retrograde before, but do you really know what it means?
When a planet is in retrograde, its course of movement changes. Simply put, it reverses its direction. This might not sound like a big deal but if you were to reverse your direction in your day to day life, you might notice things start to get a bit awry.
Generally speaking, Mercury retrograde happens at least three times a year and has a duration of 21 days. Each retrograde takes part during a different season or sign in the zodiac, which greatly influences its “flavor” or energy. And this month Mercury is retrograde in the watery sign of Scorpio.
In terms of astrology, Mercury represents communication as is known as the “messenger planet”. During a Mercury retrograde its important to use your intuition as a guide when communicating. Often times signals can get crossed in the wrong direction and we can say things with haste, therefore its important to pause.
During this retrograde in Scorpio, we advise you to use your intuition as your ultimate guide, express yourself clearly and thoughtfully, practice some self-care, and trust yourself.
