Is Mercury in retrograde right now? — Yes, the cycle began on September 10 and ends on October 2 😱
Mercury is the fastest moving planet, and symbolizes intellect, reason, and communication and when it metaphorically spins out of control by entering this infamous cycle, it leaves us to deal with the consequences… Although every planet of the solar system goes retrograde at some point, the effects of Mercury entering this motion are often more intense and bring about even more misfortune than most other planets.

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 backward motion in the night sky through the zodiac. So, no, Mercury's orbit of the sun won't change direction, because it's an optical illusion. 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. According to Susan Taylor, in 2022, Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, and Sagittarius can expect to be the most impacted by the chaos.
For astrologers, these phases coincide with major psychological changes. Due to the fact that the planet figuratively moves backward, its energy can no longer fully express itself, causing internal disturbances or slowdowns in many individuals.

From September 10 - 23, 2022, Mercury retrograde in Libra. Libra is related to the 7th house in astrology, which is the sector of relationships, associations, and contracts. Mercury retrograde in this sign can therefore bring worries related to a lack of communication or misunderstandings with others, mainly in your relationship or with your partners, or professional associates. Agreements and contracts may also be delayed. So be more attentive and careful when you pass on your oral or written messages and remain patient if a contract or an arrangement is delayed: this is because things still need to mature before commitment.

From September 24 - October 2, 2022 - Expect stress
From September 24, Mercury, who was previously retrograde in Libra, moves into the sign of Virgo, before resuming its direct course on October 3. Virgo is related to the 6th house in astrology, so it is either the sector of daily work or the place of our activity (company, establishment, workshop, trade...) / or simply the sector of our daily life. In this sign, Mercury retrograde can hinder us in our daily life, and make us more worried when faced with an accumulation of unexpected events such as appliances that no longer work, after-sales services, or customer services that fail... Patience is required because under Mercury retrograde in Virgo, we can more easily somatize (headaches, stomach aches, skin rashes, etc... due to stress). Under the influence of Mercury retrograde in Virgo, we are often more nervous and more worried because it is more difficult to improvise during a period where imponderables are more numerous.
