As you might know, Mercury goes “retrograde” when it passes the Earth because it journeys across the solar. From our perspective, this makes it seem as if Mercury is shifting backward (though it is not truly). And Mercury, being the planet of communication, data, logic, and transportation, can mess with all of these themes because it strikes by this backspin.
Based on psychotherapist and astrologer Jennifer Freed, Ph.D., this explicit retrograde begins within the signal of Gemini, which additionally occurs to be dominated by Mercury. It should then transfer into the signal of Taurus, affecting extra Taurean themes, till it goes direct as soon as extra on June 3.
“So the primary little bit of this retrograde goes to be quite a lot of difficult wordplay and confusions round what Gemini represents, which is the thoughts and our networks. And it actually does rule expertise, to a level, so we are able to count on some amusing diversions with expertise,” Freed explains.
“After which it goes again into Taurus, and that is an entire different ballgame… We will have quite a lot of completely different challenges round how we take into consideration our cash and our physique,” she provides.
And as an FYI, Freed says we’ll all be affected by this transit, although if this Mercury retrograde lands precisely in your solar, moon, or rising signal, “you’ll have an additional alternative to be consciously minded.”
