Mercury Goes Retrograde in Aquarius. Jan 30th Feb 20

Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Aquarius today.

What does this mean?

Basically it appears as though Mercury is moving backward in the sky. On a symbolic level this means the areas Mercury usually rules over, such as communication, intellect, connection and technology don’t function in their usual way. These areas are now more internalised.

On a practical level mercury moving retrograde can place a serious disruption on how we manage and deal with these aspects on a daily basis. However Mercury retrograde also offers us the opportunity to reflect and internalise this energy rather than actively use it.

When Mercury goes retrograde, we need to be aware that what we wish to communicate may feel restrained or potentially be mis-communicated.. I encourage you therefore to ensure your messages are well thought out, clear and understood by the recipient. This period is rife with the potential for misunderstandings and given it is in the sign of Aquarius, this could certainly manifest with friends and groups.

Technology can frustrate us more than usual with Mercury retrograde. This is the period in which your lap top decides to have a malfunction, the software you rely on suddenly has glitches and you experience delays in all manners of transportation. I highly recommend checking your car is in good working order at this time.

Being aware of these energies can lessen our frustration as we are certainly in line to experience all kinds of unexpected and unplanned events, the best advice is to attempt to just go with the flow of it all.

If you can avoid signing contracts at this time, it is advisable. If you can not then ensure you go over the fine print again and again and ask plenty of questions.

Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo so for these signs, it can be a significant disruption as it can for the other air signs, Libra and Aquarius. However it is not all bad as Mercury retrograde offers us opportunity to access more of our intuitive mind rather than logical mind. It is a particularly potent time for heightened dreams, so take note of what your dreams are telling you during this period, there are often messages delivered to us in our dream states now.

Reflection and deep thinking such as meditation is an excellent use of the Mercury retrograde period as our mind turns inward. There is much wisdom that can be delivered to us now for us to then put to use once it goes direct. Being in the sign of Aquarius we could experience some flashes of insight, thoughts and ideas that seem to come out of the blue and are certainly out of the box.
