Goodbye Mercury Retrograde

Can we get an AMEN? On August 19, 2018, messenger planet Mercury ends a three-week retrograde in fiery Aries, a signal-scrambling cycle that caused chaos with technology, travel and communication that began on July 26.

Hallelujah—Mercury retrograde is over! Three to four times a year, messenger Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation and technology, spends three weeks in a special brand of upheaval. As Mercury passes the Earth in its journey ’round the Sun, it appears to spin backward. (Read an in-depth explanation of a retrograde here.)

One thing you should know is that EVERY planet goes retrograde. The word “retrograde” has become so ominous these days, and even oversaturated in the mainstream. And while we might find this annoying in some ways, these cosmic cycles are also key times to really review, refine and reconfigure. While Mars and Venus only go retrograde every other year, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are in reverse annually, for a good chunk of each year, giving us all ample time to fine tune our most cherished projects and goals.

During its retrograde, everything under Mercury’s jurisdiction also gets muddled: conversations, simple instructions and plans. People argue senselessly. Flights are missed and trains are delayed, cars break down. Servers crash and electronic equipment fizzles out.

As Mercury corrects course and turns direct (forward), it settles into a new cosmic landscape. Conflicts dissipate, technology starts working properly and people return to their senses. But don’t rush to launch that blog or invite that drama-loving friend to crash on your couch over Labor Day. Mercury’s “shadow phase” is still in effect until September 2. It’s like a slow fade-in and fade-out, where we’ll feel lingering effects of the retrograde a couple weeks before and after. We call “retroshade,” since the trickster planet still seems to be throwing shade at us!

That said, the coast IS clearing for the standard post-Mercury retrograde activities: shopping for gadgets and a new set of wheels, signing contracts, getting tattoos, deciding whether or not your love interest is undateable. Move ahead at a gentle clip and give your good senses a chance to resume.
