Yes, it’s time to double check your communication. It’s time to measure four times before cutting once. It’s time to reevaluate, reassess, rethink, and review. Yes folks, it is MERCURY RETROGRADE TIME!
The planet of communication went reverse in Aquarius this morning, January 5th, and will eventually move back into the sign of Capricorn before turning direct again on the 25th. Aquarius is fixed air so focus on reviewing things dealing with expansion of abstract ideas first. Social justice, social groups and movements, television, and more. Messages and ideas surrounding these things may get misconstrued so take your time. Especially with Mercury making a hard aspect to Mars in Scorpio. The ego and belief in conspiracy is a bit higher.
Once Mercury slides back into Capricorn, rethink ideas centered around cardinal earth. Long term plans for financial/material/earthly growth is a good place to start. Also, authority figures may want to take extra time in crafting their message before sending it out into the world. The aspects that this retrograde Mercury form warrant some looking into for sure.
Mercury and Uranus squaring each other during this retrograde could indicate some real moments of cross purpose in which we question how we move forward into who we want to be while finding a place in larger groups. Group think versus the lone wolf mentality. On the practical side, double checking our social media passwords and accounts against sudden attack should be on the list. Save everything and back it up. I have a personal hunch that somebody’s stuff is going to get leaked during this time but I’m not a psychic so we’ll see.
The cosmic connection with a retrograde Jupiter in Virgo is also there begging us to take our time in practical matters. Faith is great but learning how to root it is necessary. At the same time Mercury will be in between the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn so please think before you speak. Your reputation could depend on it. Pluto will tear shit up and what you thought of yourself and how you show your light to others is no exception. Be careful with long range plans, especially concerning home improvements that deal with the actual structure/framework of your home. It may seem like a good idea but you could be missing some important details.
Remember, Mercury Retrograde is a completely doable and livable time. Don’t stop living but don’t rush either. Take your time.You’ll get thru this just like everyone before it.
Til next time good peoples.
