MERCURY RETROGRADE January 2022
Updated: Mar 12, 2022
WARNING...Rx INCOMING!! Still under a Capricorn (heavy) Sun with Venus Retrograde too, MERCURY WILL GO RETROGRADE in Capricorn and then into Aquarius. What can we expect during Mercury Retrograde? Just stupid stuff to go wrong, quit working, break down, exes come back, annoyances. On Jan 14, 2022, 6:41 AM Mercury Retrogrades until Feb 3, 2022, 11:13 PM. Use this time to refocus, redo, rethink especially about friend groups, social networks, tech developments and long term vision. WTF is MRx anyway?...and there's no nicer way to express that.
Mercury rules communication, travel and technology it can seriously mess with all three. We can expect everything from mixed messages, delayed flights, Phone or computer alerts, mechanical issues, temper issues, Exes come back! So… how do we navigate these times? REmember: we are going to focus on your REs for REtrograde (review, reassess, realign, reconnect, revisit.) This is not a time to start new projects, sign contracts or make impulsive decisions. At this time we are going to want to… 1. Slow down!!! Everything just mentioned- communication, travel, technology- keep us moving pretty fast, so slow down. 2. Double check everything! Schedules, itineraries, tickets, text message and email recipients before you click send. Because Mercury rules travel, tech and communication- this is a BIG ONE! 3. Digital self care. Backup your devices - retrograde can trigger computer crashes (lost 3 hard drives in the past Rxs)
MERCURY Rx IN THE SIGNS: Check Sun and Rising Sign IN AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign that governs relationships, friendships are put at risk. Petty squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are. IN PISCES (Feb 19–Mar 20): Foggy thinking, daydreams, and escapism are the norm; day-to-day realities confound otherwise clear heads when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting. IN ARIES (Mar 21–Apr 19): Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive, impulsive Aries wants to move ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised. IN TAURUS (Apr 20–May 20): Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth. IN GEMINI (May 21–Jun 20): Because Gemini rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect. IN CANCER (Jun 21–Jul 22): Expect annoyances at home with baking, gardening, and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly. IN LEO (Jul 23–Aug 22): Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to buy and sell or do any trading. Instead, analyze your investment portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates. IN VIRGO (Aug 23–Sep 22): Challenging situations arise, especially in the workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns, as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished. IN LIBRA (Sep 23–Oct 22: Accept your physical attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit purchases—or risk returning them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate. IN SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware. Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive, and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary. IN SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): It is not a time to travel, so reschedule or expect delays, lines, and lost directions. Instead, take care of local affairs. Patience and a sense of humor are needed. IN CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): Avoid buying, selling, or renting real estate un der Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home. From Cosmic X and Farmer's Almanac
