It is that time of year when Mercury will be Retrograde starting January 14th – February 3rd, 2022. Venus is also in retrograde until January 29th. Together, Venus & Mercury retrograde will ask us to transform the way we communicate within relationships and bring attention to how we relate to others. We may have opportunities to reconnect with friends & family or people from your past. Use this as an opportunity to reshape communication patterns, make healthy choices in who you want to surround yourself with, and connect with people who uplift you and bring you joy.
Even though Mercury can be a trickster, there are some great ways to make the most of Mercury Retrograde
- Back up your computer, watch appointment times & leave plenty of time ahead if there should be delays.
- Research, catch up on old projects, declutter and see what needs to be revised in your life.
- Enjoy this introspective time to journal, reflect, slow down, take some down time and rejuvenate your spirit.
Many people dread Mercury Retrograde, but it affects everyone differently. For some it may go by with a breeze, and for others it may leave you counting down the days until it goes direct again. 😊 It depends on the quality of Mercury in your personal, unique chart, the current sign Mercury is in, which house Mercury is moving through and other fun details.
