Mercury Retrograde Returns


It's that season again! Mercury retrograde: your quarterly excuse for everything. Mercury will begin its apparent three-week moonwalk across the sky on Friday

 April 21 (a day after the solar eclipse in Aries and the start of Taurus season), and continue until May 14.

This Mercury retrograde will be different from the last since each has distinct qualities that change how we perceive this calamity-prone passage. Don’t panic! You’re covered!

Mercury was named after the Roman messenger god of trade because it orbits the sun in only 88 days.

 Taurus is my Sun, Moon, or Rising!

You should fasten your seatbelt if your sun, moon, rising, Mercury, Venus, or Mars are all in Taurus. For the next couple of months,

Mercury retrograde pre-shadow began on March 30. Now you know why the past few weeks have seemed odd.

However, planning ahead for backward motion is best! Traveling? Allow time for delays, cancellations, and transportation issues.
