Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

Mercury retrograde in Gemini brings up some interesting points. First of all, Mercury rules Gemini. The sign & the planet have very similar meanings. In Gemini, Mercury feels at home (because he is) more than in any other Zodiac sign except Virgo. After all, Mercury / Gemini likes to do things in pairs, & just as Mercury rules Gemini, it also rules Virgo. Two signs.

Mercury in Gemini is in his data gathering mode. Here he loves to move around, tune into the news, find out what's changed in his immediate vicinity since the last time he really took stock of the neighborhood. Mercury in Gemini is really in his element (literally) of scooping up bits & pieces of knowledge & filing them away for future reference when they may prove helpful. Or fun. He'll take either.

* Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind ---> When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets. It describes your ability to read, write, study, talk, absorb information and learn new things. It describes your communication skills, your use of knowledge, your individual perspective. It also depicts your ability to be mobile, to move around -- physically and intellectually.

* Mercury Retrograde -- A New Look at an Old Aggravation ---> People know what it means ---> A surprising number of people know the term Mercury Retrograde. More surprising, since many people aren't really "into" astrology, they have a pretty good idea what it means. They know it means screwed up communications, frustrating delays, "things going wrong," misunderstandings, misplaced items, lost documents, and inconvenient mix-ups. It's a good excuse for "things not working," so they grab that and run with it to "explain" why life is a mess.

* Quick Notes on Mercury Retrograde ---> You might want to start here: Mercury Retrograde in Shadow-Mode ---> Time to reconsider ---> When Mercury turns retrograde, which it does about three times a year, it moves from the degree of the Zodiac where it stops before turning around (Astrologers call this piece of business "taking a station.") ... then it moves about 14 -15 degrees backwards to a previous point. There it takes another station ... and then finally, starts moving forward again -- having tended (we hope) to the business it forgot ... or misunderstood.

* Don't Govern with Bad Intelligence -- Knowing what Mercury Retrograde Means -- And What It Means to You!! ---> One thing's for sure ... things will change ---> When Mercury is retrograde, it's hard to make reliable decisions. You may not have all the facts you need. The facts you do have may change ... or your understanding of them may change. New information may arrive that puts a different light on your life, your plans, and your world itself. You gain a new perspective -- or a new opinion -- on something that makes you rethink everything start to finish. When Mercury is retrograde, remember this: What you think -- and pretty much all your immediate plans -- will change soon. Until you have a more ...

* Mercury Retrograde and Shadow-Mode ---> The real life truth of Mercury Retrograde ---> When Mercury turns retrograde (in any sign), look at the degrees of the Zodiac it will cover in its backward retreat. Mercury's "official" retrograde period lasts about three weeks if you go by the regular calendar, but objectively -- in real life -- Mercury's retrograde cycle takes a lot longer. It starts with what's called a "shadow phase." This begins when Mercury, while still going direct, first crosses the degree of the Zodiac to which it will return when retrograde. This takes a little bit of awareness and extra ....

* Turn Mercury Retrograde into an Inner Experience ---> Go inward ---> Mercury rules all functions of the mind and all forms of transportation and physical mobility. When Mercury turns retrograde -- as is legendary in everyday experience -- the chance that something will go wrong in these areas increases to the point it almost seems like a given. Things get lost. Things go missing. Things break down. Delays and misunderstandings abound. But Mercury retrograde is also a time when you can learn to use your mind (and your travel modes) differently. Try reducing the times you communicate and the things you communicate ....

From EDA: Mercury Retrograde -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology June 1, 2021 Mercury Retrograde ---> Three or four times a year, Mercury ... the planet closest to the Sun -- associated in Astrology with travel, speech, communications & language skills, & with technology, transportation & equipment in the material world -- "turns retrograde." Previously, outside the fields of astronomy & astrology, this term was barely known & never heard. With recent interest in New Age doings, that has changed. A surprising number of ordinary people (grin) know the term Mercury Retrograde ... & even more impressive, they have ....

BEE: Mercury Retrograde -- From the Blogs, Ezines & Elsewhere -- Selection 1 ---> Mercury Retrograde Entries from Everyday Astrology Selection 1 ---> Mercury has turned retrograde in Leo. It will travel back into Cancer on July 18, turn direct again on July 31 and return to Leo (direct) on August 11, It will affect the areas of life covered by 24° Cancer to 4° in your Natal Chart, Where are those? Mercury "goes retrograde" about three times a year and remains so for three and a half weeks. It retrogrades more often than any other planet, but stays that way for ....

BEE: Mercury Retrograde -- From the Blogs, Ezines & Elsewhere -- Selection 2 ---> Mercury Retrograde Entries from Everyday Astrology Selection 2 ---> Mercury Retrograde has a reputation. Even people who aren't into Astrology know the term. And while it's around, they become "believers." Probably because it's useful. It explains, excuses, rationalizes why things go wrong. They can shift responsibility for why the car broke down, why they missed the appointment, why the email went wandering. "It's not my fault!! Mercury is retrograde!! Well, ok. I guess some knowledge ...

When Mercury Leads the Sun -- Mercury passes and moves out -- in front of the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Racing ahead, out in front like he ought to ---> When Mercury leads the Sun, your intellectual shift moves gradually out of the pensive, reflective, "planning mode" you've occupied for the past several weeks, and you're ready to talk, write, and share ideas openly and freely again with "strangers."

When Mercury Trails the Sun -- Mercury retrograde moves behind the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Quiet time ---> In the next few weeks you'll become more contemplative, spend more time in planning and research, quietly consider what you've learned recently ... and what you want to do next with yourself, your life, your interests, and your mind. With Mercury in a trailing position, you will be more observant and less talkative, more intuitive ...
