Mercury Retrograde Meaning

In general, we associate Mercury retrograde with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items.

While the Mercury retrograde period may be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Mercury retrograde can play havoc with our thoughts, communications, travels and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react to quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace, and double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.

Business negotiations will be in a state of flux, so this is not a good time to be signing contracts. Some important details are not yet available, and other parties may not be reliable or honest. If going on a road trip[ then make sure you get your car serviced before hand.

Moon conjunct Mercury creates a great deal of emotional sensitivity and changeable moods. You can more easily make close emotional attachments to other people, or enjoy reminiscing about the past with family member. Such strong emotional bonds at this time can cloud your judgement, so this is not the best time for making important decisions.

A more favorable thing to do with this sociable energy is to share your feeling through written or spoken words. This is a great opportunity to get things off your chest, especially relationship issues. Conversation with women and family members in particular will be emotionally nourishing.

  1. This really looks scary. for decan 3 cardinals u have said mercury will trine for same period n will be really useful but here it looks damaging n loosing.

    • Like I said, there will be winners and losers. If you have a good aspect to Mercury retrograde then it is more likely you will do well out of this.

      • I have libra decan 3 , mercury is in my second house and it conjunct uranus and square Jupiter. and makes trine with moon and sextile saturn in natal chart. how to see what is mine mercury aspects good or bad.
        Sun Libra 28°12’42
        Mercury Scorpio 12°03’45 in house 2 direct
        Ascendant Libra 0°49’45

  2. sounds like my life story in the past, hopefully done now, having chiron at 5 Pisces and sth node 29 Aquarius… all led to my having a fear of success for a while, not any more though, thank goodness! I am hopeful of a good turn around for me now and I dont wish losing on anyone, but if thats how it has to be, its not my responsibility and it wouldnt be on purpose, my conscience is clean and clear, and I wouldnt trade that for anything :)

  3. oh yeah and I have neptune trine mercury in natal and I am extremely psychic, just imagine a child born with the conjunction? wow, that would be mind blowing!

      • Excellent! and happy to contribute to what helps educates regarding anything “Occult” to remove the misnomers :) Will look forward to reading it Jamie, I realise there are other powerful aspects involved with my psychic and intuitive faculties, which are multi faceted as most are (Moon conj Poseidon in 12th, Jupiter conjunct IC, 9th house sun/merc etc) yet I do feel that the Neptune/Merc trine is a powerful creative flow, so will be interesting to grasp and understanding of it even more!

  4. My 21st birthday is on February 18th should I be concerned about going out cause thus far since the first of February my car got broken into and whomever it was smashed a window yet stole nothing at all, my car breaks down a mile from work two days later and my car has been in the shop for a week, and three days after that my girlfriend I live with cheated on me and then moved back in with her mom at least I have my other roommates as support. I find it almost humorous that all this has happened so suddenly when the months leading up were just great, any ideas on if this whole Mercury Retrograde is apart of it?
    Also I don’t want anyone reading this thinking I’m looking for sympathy, If anything I feel it may be a blessing in disguise, a serendipitous chain of events leading me to a path I’ve either strayed from or a path I’ve yet to take, Because since all of this I’ve noticed that I’ve been pretty spiritual as well I’ve been daydreaming and noticing the little things such as being overly intrigued by the reflections of the trees and sky on the surface of a pond, and I’ve been cleaning the side of the road of liter on my lunch breaks at work and not worrying about others judgments or assumptions of me just being myself, I’m making more music, writing poetry, seeing things in many different ways and thinking in an intellectually structured manner other than the sporadic mess of relation as I normally do lol,
    Regardless or not If any of what I said is even relevant I’d like to know if I should be concerned about the 18th,
    Any reply’s would be greatly appreciated,
    Thanks! (:

  5. Well! I`ll have fun -I guess- it will be back and forth in opposition of my natal moon and saturn (which are in an ample conjunction, 8 and 13 grades sagg)… brrr!

  6. Gemini in this month I feel so negative. I had lots of financial problem and I my boyfriend ignore me? Do you think at the end of may it should be better? I was born 19 of NOv.
