1. What Does Mercury Retrograde mean?

The term RETROGRADE describes how Mercury appears to move from our Earth perspective during such times. During retrograde phases, Mercury appears to be stopped or no longer moving against the backdrop of the stars in the evening sky. In fact, Mercury appears to retrace its path by the stars it just passed – thus it appears to be going backward.

Of course, from an astronomical perspective, no planet actually reverses its direction. Our experience of seeing a planet retrace its steps, however, gives us another perspective.

Mercury Retrogrades occur at least 3 times every year.

"The slowing and reversing of Mercury’s direction gives us an opportunity to witness magic revealing itself. If the magician slows what s/he is doing way down, we can peek behind the curtain and see how the magic works. The invisible becomes visible, the unknown becomes known. It is a time for fully exploring the magic and mystery of life in a way that is not always available to us." Robert Wilkinson - A New Look at Mercury Retrograde

2. How to make the most of this Mercury Retrograde!

The planetary being Mercury is about the mind, it is also very much about communication, in particular communicating who we are – in every way and form of communication available.

A retrograde movement of Mercury gives us an opportunity to go internally and reflect in order to redefine our experience and/or to have a revelation of some sort in relation to this. Our reflection at these times often centers on the mysteries of the information in the star sign that Mercury resides within during its retrograde.

The second Mercury Retrograde of 2023 begins on 23rd August, depending on your location. Mercury stations retrograde in Virgo (21º ) and the direct station occurs in Virgo also (0.8º) on 15th September, 2023.


More about Mercury Retrograde in Virgo at this time...

Mercury is the planet ruling the rational mind, logic, problem-solving, and critical thinking. It reflects our learning style and our way to deal with the details of everyday life.

Mercury in Virgo is calling YOU to expand your perceptions of reality a little more – in order to see / feel/ honour & engage with the cycles of the heavens, the Earth Mother and the human life. You are urged to get conscious of the sacred timings of the natural world and to weave their frequencies into and through the ‘unified field of creation’ to realise balance and high frequency environments within and around you.

Mercury in Virgo is calling YOU to embrace sacred ritual in your daily life and to dive deeply within to seek out your sacred work, that which you are here to share with the world (whatever that is) then to align with the sacred timings, to anchor in and manifest this within your life, to serve through your sacred work.

With Mercury Retrograde, you have the opportunity to identify and shift any mental blocks, patterns or beliefs that are holding you back from really embodying these practices in your daily life and/ or perhaps holding you back from stepping more fully into your sacred work.

For those who are on path, use this energy to get organised and prepare for a great leap forward! Clear away blocks, wrap up that which no longer serves, get ready to start a project that is dear to you, or just as importantly use this energy to re-vise, re-engineer and complete projects of the heart that you know will assist you to commence your sacred work and/or to flow more consciously with the sacred timings of the heavens/life. It is time to step up and ‘BE Cosmic Consciousness in Action’ in your daily life, to become the most powerful co-creator you can be!

Working in flow with Mercury Retrograde you can find yourself being re-energised and recharged. It can be a great time for completing things that have already been started.

On the flip side, Mercury Retrograde really is not a great time for starting things, signing contracts out of the blue, etc. It is not a time for making long-term decisions and it really is advisable to postpone them wherever possible.

During Mercury Retrograde celestial flows we can find things moving illogically, or not in the way we are used to. Thus it is a time when our computers can crash or do strange things, our phones can be problematic, documents can go missing in the mail, etc.

For this reason, it is always really good practice to back up your computers and data prior to a Mercury Retrograde movement, to take time to make sure that you are saving things as you work with them, to be patient when things aren’t working in relation to communications. And TO REALISE IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING THESE CHALLENGES at any such moment – perhaps for you this cycle is to be one of deep reflection, rather than a time of having to make things happen out in the world of form.

So instead of perceiving Mercury Retrograde as a challenging time when you can’t get things done – how about turning the flow to your advantage?

Use the Mercury Retrograde celestial flow to actively tune into more creative expression, to review, reflect, re-consider, re-structure, re-check, re-assess, re-fine, re-focus, re-visit (you get the drift), and to be open to revelations as a result.

This approach will allow you to be in flow and harmony, so you can experience Mercury Retrograde as a great time to be creative. A time to have new insights, to focus upon and complete projects that you have already started. To really tune into the magic of what is being revealed to you, the invisible becoming visible.

Also, it is worth noting that for up to two days before Mercury officially goes retrograde & again before it officially goes direct again – MERCURY STATIONS (or appears to stand still). These times are infamous for creating a feeling of disorientation and confusion, as the energy shifts direction. If you are feeling disoriented this may be why.
