According to astronomy, Mercury in retrograde is not what it seems. All the planets move in the same direction. When a star has a " retrograde " movement , it means that it is moving in the opposite direction. But the planets do not change the direction of their orbit.

Mercury makes an  apparent retrograde movement : from Earth, it seems to return and then return to the correct direction. It is an effect of the speed differential of the orbits of both planets. In reality, its movement does not change, but in the night sky it seems to slow down, stop, reverse, and then correct course.

But astrologically, Mercury in retrograde means much more than that. The planet represents the communication , travel, siblings, decisions, messages and important documents and more. Astrology interprets retrogradation as something that disrupts all these areas of life for all signs alike.


  1. Problems regulating your emotions: If you suddenly notice that you are more sensitive to comments, words and even looks, Mercury may be exerting its effect, leading you to analyze and overanalyze every detail to the point of trauma.
  2. Persistent doubts: If you notice that you begin to doubt everything, that you stand in front of a mirror and do not even know who you are seeing, if you question whether you are doing enough and if all your effort is worth it, Mercury is exerting its influence on you.
  3. You knowingly make bad decisions: If you perceive that you are making decisions that you know perfectly well that they are not the best, but you do not understand why in the blink of an eye you are following the worst impulse, look for Mercury in the sky. It sure is in retrograde.
  4. Serious communication problems: If you do not seem to be able to make yourself understand, nor do you manage to understand what others are saying, if text messages do not respond and calls do not connect, and you feel that you go from misunderstanding to misunderstanding without ever reaching the understanding, surely Mercury is wreaking havoc.
