Mercury Retrograde basically refers to the times that Mercury appears to move backward, but it’s just an optical illusion. That doesn’t seem like a big deal, and you most likely didn’t know and won’t even realize it’s happening. But you might notice a few things going on a little bit more than usual. Maybe some very strange things happen too.

During the time Mercury is in Retrograde, there may be more experiences of miscommunications, delays, technology issues, transportation problems, and more. You may run into someone from your past to settle any unresolved matters, or stir up some new ones. Be careful.

This can actually work to your advantage in some ways. Most people don’t pay any attention to this phenomenon. While others don’t quite understand it, so they just randomly blame it when things go wrong. That’s not really how it works. But if you know how MR works, you can navigate through it with a clearer head.

When this time comes, I feel like it’s a great time to take a moment to breathe. I expect things to go wrong, or break. I’m really careful to read everything over thoroughly, whether it’s a contract or a text message. I also won’t make any major decisions. I will usually stay low and observe. I do a lot of thinking and organizing.

That’s pretty much the gist of Mercury Retrograde. I hope it helps to give a better understanding of it. There’s lots of sites out there with some additional information, probably also delving into more astrological things that I haven’t touched on. I don’t know enough of that end of things at the moment, but as I come across any decent links, I’ll post them here.
