Mercury Retrograde can be a huge A-hole. In a post back in 2015, I mentioned how I honor the many cycles that happen. From a young age, I have always had a strong connection to the planets. My senses tend to be heightened and my intuition is extremely strong during certain planetary cycles. Although I find myself with a strong connection, does that mean I become a slave to the planetary alignments? HELL NO. However, I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t see cosmic shifts happen in my inner-verse and outer world. Mercury Retrograde has always been a big time for change and realization for me. I find that full and new moons have a strong impact on my emotional body. With Mercury, I’ve seen a pattern of facing challenges in my headspace and physical world due to some hiccups I have experienced.
So, what exactly is Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury Retrograde is when the planet goes reverse (retrograde) in its usual revolution. That means Mercury appears to be moving backwards in space. In astrology, Mercury is connected with travel, and some even say, technology. It’s also said to affect all forms of communication. Such forms include listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, negotiating, researching, selling and buying. My psychic that I speak with on a regular basis has always told me, “Do NOT sign any contracts, DON’T buy a house of for goodness sake DON’T have any extensive travel plans”. Sometimes, I just can’t help myself to follow this advice when travel becomes involved.
Many astrologers believe that planetary alignments and positions affect our everyday lives. It is safe to consider Mercury retrograde rotating at a slower pace, therefore, gives it the illusion that it’s moving backwards. What can you expect during Mercury retrograde?
- Bad communication
- Missed or canceled travel plans/ flights
- Contracts not being finalized and or signed
- Closing a sale may be very difficult
- New jobs or gigs may turn into a bigger headache than it’s worth
- New projects may be stalled or canceled
Mercury Insight for 2016 thus far

Creating a sacred space is not only important, it’s necessary.
