Mercury goes Retrograde for the first of three times on January 30, 2021 in the astrological sign of Aquarius, the Water Bearer. Aquarius, an Air sign, is one of the triplicate of signs that govern the element of Air, which rules the mental facilities, communications, and action areas of the zodiac. Air signs investigate, analyze, and make decisions based on intelligence and fact. Aquarius has as its specialty the nuance of the Good of Mankind in forward progress.

The planet Mercury (planet of the astrological signs of Gemini and Virgo) is all about Communication. It rules the “how” we pass information to each other. Coupling that with the energy that Mercury has in regards to restlessness and motion, in a direct or forward moving traveling pattern, this planet eases action with quick thinking and possibilities, despite being good or bad, and the movement certainly is energizing. With Mercury being in retrograde, or “moving backward” through the sign of Aquarius, the progress that is currently in motion for the betterment of people may have “mixed signals and crossed communications” due to a lagging of said forward movement.

This three week period may see stalled Governmental decisions, delays in mail coming by ways of traditional delivery methods, computers crashing, missed voicemail and other messages, and other communication devices appearing to have gone on strike, if deciding to completely die on us at all! Mid-January is the time to prepare online credit card payments for February, send checks out a little early, and making sure you do not sign any papers of importance (leases/mortgages/large purchases etc.) before reading over the contract more than once. Delay these final signatures if you can until mid-February.

Personal communications may also be misconstrued and confusing, so make sure you read and re-read e-mails sent, as to defuse any hurt feelings. Relationship may also take a toll, and unfortunately this Retrograde period encompasses Valentine’s Day on February 14th, so make sure you are ready when you whisper sweet nothings into their ear that they do not mistake it for a proposal!

Mercury Retrograde ends its first cycle on February 19th, in the astrological sign of Pisces, the Fish. Those of you who are empathetic and intuitive may feel “out of sorts” as the messages you are receiving may not make sense. You may have to wait for about a week after Mercury going direct (on the 19th) before some clarity to said messages is revealed and you can fully comprehend what was being parlayed to you.

The next Mercury Retrograde period begins on May 31st and spans most of June 2021.
