Three days after the initial transit, (planetary placement) the planet Mercury resides in the sign of Gemini– Retrograde. In this article we dive into the activating origins of this Mercury Retrograde and explain how to stay out of dodge until it all blows over.
Lets get to business breaking down the energy of this three week period and how you can best serve yourself at this moment of introspection.
MERCURY RETROGRADE MENTAL CHECK IN
Firstly, how does it make you feel, any different? You’ll notice it more as you interact with others who seem off-balance.
Notice the traffic out there now that everyone is back to “normal”? If your reply is “crappy”, then I know we are on the same page. I’m sure of it and yes, people could have lost their minds…however, Gemini, Mercury and the 3rd house of the Zodiacal wheel (the “pie” in the sky any time a snapshot is taken) all rule communication, our mental capacity, transportation, and the exchange of ideas.
On a positive note, it is the blaring reminder that you have things you need to finish. What area’s of your life need cleaning these days? Scarcity due to unchecked attitudes, assets, and relationship dynamics are influential flavors with the North Node of the Moon, the Sun, and Mercury all in the sign of Gemini. Exploring the 8th house of hidden affairs, taxes, conception, and transformation will result in mental breakthroughs and rude awakenings.
WHAT IS MERCURY RETROGRADE?
When any planet is in Retrograde, we can humbly accept the challenge of going within, or dive into a sea of crazy because the “world is conspiring” against you, despite your best efforts. Not true! The invitation is here to see a reflection of what you look like on the outside…sometimes. Ouch.
“Taking a step back when you’re met with unreasonable, sketchy behavior is good practice – re-treat with retro-grade.”
Pull out your post it notes! Writing these reminders down and placing them where you brush your teeth helps your manifestation results.
- I will finish what I started.
- I will clear dirty corners of my life.
- Retrograde prepares me for greatness
HOW TO EMBRACE MERCURY RETROGRADE IN GEMINI
Never fear, this is not a time where everything in the world that could happen will. This is simply a period when you can expect unexpected things to happen– regular life stuff, right? This Retrograde begins May 29th, 2021, possibly felt more fully on the 30th. This activation period will last until June 22nd, 2021.
WHO THIS RETROGRADE EFFECTS
Collectively, the energy from our relationships will present its importance. Moreover, witnessing ourselves inside the dynamic of being connected to others will be puzzling. Are we confident we can trust them, or do they continually betray our trust?
Approaching new levels of consciousness involves breaking the old cycle of habits that keep you in repression. Who is it that you can no longer take directives from? Do you feel bold and ready enough to step out on your own authority? There is a shiny invitation waiting on your doorstep that include clear instructions– change your reality.
If you are/were in school, or learning a hot subject right now, do you value the teacher, institution or education received? Do you feel it was worth your hard work and are you better prepared for life? Encouragement is sent your way to make the best decisions you can, with the resources you have at your fingertips.
Do you feel relevant in this market we are in or do you feel pushed out by the change in patterns? This is a time for you to reassess where you stand in the communities you participate in. By communities I mean, fake friends, crappy DM’s, messages, and comments that do not boost who you are or what you do. Consider the vibration of the people you communicate with.
people on the move
Are you moving house or job right now? Running into frustrations can bring on unwanted thoughts of inadequacy, and helplessness. Limitations cannot keep you in your circumstances. In time, resigning paperwork and turning in necessary documents provide the fruits of all your labor. To finally get the hell out of dodge!
all poor souls who own a car
If you own a vehicle and have been putting off that oil change, repair, or tire buy, you may be in for a rude awakening. Its probably have been in your presence for a good week already. Vehicle repairs always show early of a retrograde period. Be sure to get to a mechanic and the possibility of getting dirty is inevitable if this is you find yourself car trouble.
People born with mercury in retrograde (no matter the sign)
Finding yourself quite balanced is a likely manifestation. Taking full stock of what you have to do and where to get the resources. Clarity is on the rise and its only a matter of time. Putting plans to paper surrounding your ideas has been a desire for years. The time to act is now!

A SUMMARY OF COMMON RETROGRADE FEELINGS
- Feeling airy, brain fog, and inability to communicate the way you wish.
- Increase of issues surrounding travel and vehicles.
- Reconsidering new strategies for schooling.
- Redefining reality– the world as we know it looks different.
HEALTHY PRACTICES TO CENTER
- MEDITATION! Mental activity will feel wild for non-retrograde born people will be heavy, the mind is NOT your friend.
- Yogic or restorative body movement at a fast pace or heated room.
- Watching old movies that bring you joy.
- Connecting with your kin and saying “what’s up”.
The conclusion is that Mercury retrograde should not keep you up at night, scared that all your electronics will blow up or that problems will arise constantly. Retrograde is a time of significant reflection and inward sight.
Staying to yourself, holding your tongue before you speak out, and deep conversations are high priorities of this “backward” feeling time. Be kind to yourself. If the thoughts do not surround how amazing and full of light you actually are, then you are encouraged to plug your ears.
Like with all things, this too shall pass!
