Find the Upside to Mercury Retrograde

The Positive Spin on Mercury Retrograde

As with most things in life, there are positives to be garnered from negatives, or in this case, perceived negatives. Mercury Retrograde is one such occurrence. Sure, it wreaks havoc on our lives when the ruler of communication appears to turn backwards in the sky. But appearances are deceiving. No planet actually spins in reverse orbit. Rather, the earth rotates at a different pace than the other planets, causing the illusion of backward motion in relation to us.

So then, it’s no wonder Mercury Retrograde is all about how we relate to each other, ourselves and the world around us. And while it’s definitely worth heeding all the advice to keep things as smooth as possible, it’s also worth examining the positives.

    The purpose of a Mercury Retrograde period is to rethink, reconsider, shift the focus, and see things from another perspective–to sort it out, think before finalizing the purchase, signing on the dotted line, etc. It’s not the time to “seal the deal” but rather to think about what the deal really is.
    It’s clear purpose is to not cause us panic and hope we don’t make mistakes under this transit, but rather to think things through, so that mistakes are NOT made and regrets DO NOT happen, once Mercury goes direct again.

    A bit of astrology trivia :
    Most people don’t know that IF Mercury was in Retrograde at the time of your birth ( check your natal chart to find out ) than, usually, current Mercury Retrogrades won’t affect you as adversely as it does others.
