What is Mercury retrograde?

It's a change in the direction of the planet in the sky and is said to set off setbacks and tribulations. This movement is in fact a visual effect and begins when the planet commences its so-called backwards motion in the night sky through the zodiac. This chaotic process includes the slowing down and eventual stagnation of the planet. It's this unnatural movement that creates so much uproar. Concretely, whilst in this stage, the planet will for example jump from Pisces back to Aquarius, plunging us into mayhem.

Scared

For astrologers, these phases coincide with major psychological changes. Due to the fact that the planet moves backwards, its energy can no longer fully express itself, causing internal disturbances or slowdowns in many individuals.

Why do the effect of this stage terrify astrology fans?

This phenomenon lasts for approximately 24 days and occurs every 88 days. During these periods everything seems to be up in the air and overwhelming. So much so, that organizing important events such as a proposal, vacation or even interviewing for a new job aren’t advised when this notion is in full force. 

Big decisions should also be avoided during this time because our communication and judgement skills are negatively impacted. Planet Mercury is said to have an influence on travel, communication and contracts, which is why so many of us are affected. Running late as well as relationship problems are both thought to be effects of this crazy cycle. 

Here are 5 signs that indicate that the motion has started:

  1. You feel less proactive
  2. You experience unexpected setbacks
  3. You isolate yourself
  4. You start doubting everything
  5. You feel lost

Hi. Really happy to say that your article is very useful to me. I am fond of astrology and often read my horoscope at horo.io. I agree with you that in the retrograde period of the movement of Mercury, it makes no sense to start something new, be it a business, relationship or purchase. But this is a great time to think about some situations in the past, and fix what you think is broken.

Hi do you give individualmonthly horoscope like others do .
