About Mercury retrograde and its phases:
Mercury goes retrograde 3 times every year. As it slows down before the retrograde period, we call it the pre-retrograde phase, a time when the planet starts losing power. Then there is the post-retrograde one, when Mercury picks up speed but is still moving slowly enough to cause a lazy progress in the projects undertaken.
During the actual Mercury retrograde period it is best advised not to venture into any new territory and to stay put. Knowing when these periods take place can help you to plan projects in advance in order to stay on-track.
This time Mercury retrogrades in Aries, the first fiery spark in the zodiac so mental discipline is a must during these weeks to avoid any boiling conflicts. The mind goes into an swaying mode and there can be a tendency to jump into conclusions without any forewarning or thought. There can be temper outbursts and nervous disorders, so again - practice mindfulness is key.
Mercury rules over all types of communication, whether it is writing, speaking, reading, social media interactions, communication technology, or any other method of transmitting information. It also rules transportation and travels, and during Mercury retrograde periods, there are more noticeable disruptions, breakdowns, and complications within all of these areas.
Aries is super to-the-point and when communication goes wack it can be an uncomfortable experience for everyone. To avoid frustrations, try to listen to others and communicate more thoroughly instead of getting angry. On a good note, these periods favors inner reflection and planning. It's a time to understand the power of thought and how they manifest for good or bad. As Aries is all about physical strength and high energy, it's also about learning how to manage your own resources for a more balanced life. Enjoy the ride with Mercury and Aries!
