There is nothing in astrology more universally hated than Mercury retrograde. It marks a time when everything just seems weird, confusing, and off-center. Mercury is the planet of communication and cognitive functions, and when Mercury retrogrades, you may feel like your brain is a bunch of spaghetti instead of the smart motor it usually is.
You may feel like your tongue is constantly getting tangled up whenever you try to say something important. The whole experience may leave you feeling a lot more prone to making mistakes than usual, and if you’re one of the zodiac signs having the worst retrograde spring of Mercury 2021, you might feel it even more intensely.
This particular Mercury retrograde begins on May 29 at 6:33 p.m. ET, taking place in social, intellectual, and adaptable Gemini. Mercury is Gemini’s governing planet, which means Mercury is comfortable while in Gemini, giving you a natural affinity for knowledge and experiences that stimulate your mind.
However, when Mercury is retrograde in Gemini, that’s another story. Mercury can question the way you search for new information and decipher the truth that you can find from that information.
It can also encourage you to rethink the way you express yourself and engage with others in the conversation. The result? Lots of missed mental steps and even more social mishaps. Fortunately, Mercury retrograde is nowhere near as bad as you might think.
While it’s true that Mercury retrograde can leave your brain feeling confused, resulting in awkward energy that can lead to procrastination and confusion, Mercury retrograde is a great time to go back to the drawing board and revisit certain aspects of your life. Either way, these zodiac signs may feel the impact of Mercury retrograde this spring the most. Here’s why:
However, this only reveals the deeper layers of yourself, encouraging you to take a closer look at your identity.
Engage in the process of rediscovering yourself. Chances are there are aspects of yourself that you never really recognized or respected the way you should. Connect with deeper confidence.
However, instead of focusing on starting something new, why not take a look at projects that you may have abandoned in the past?
There may be some unfinished business in your career that deserves to be looked at again. It can even get you to finish something, which is so much more difficult than starting something.
Maybe you just don’t get along with someone in your life and maybe you feel completely disappointed in your relationships.
However, now is a great time to rethink what kind of relationship you actually want. This is also a great time to analyze what type of partner you are in a relationship with and remind yourself that it’s a two-way street.
Maybe your bed is all lumpy and maybe you don’t get along with your family as well as you used to.
All this retrograde does is reveal aspects of your home life that may require some tinkering. Use this energy to create the home and family dynamic that makes you feel as secure as a warm blanket.
