A great analysis from astrologer Felissa Rose on the upcoming Mercury Retorgrade that starts this week:

Mercury will next go retrograde beginning on Friday,  September 9th at 11:33 pm EDT when Mercury is at 8 degrees 55 minutes in Libra.   It turns direct at 5:33 am EDT on Sunday October 2nd  when Mercury is at 24 degrees 12 minutes of Virgo.   

When a planet is retrograde it seems to be going backwards but it actually  isn’t.   It just appears to be so because of the position of the planet in relationship to the Earth and both their movements around the Sun.  In relationship to human behavior and both worldly and personal happenings, it does slow down the action of the planet.   The planet Mercury rules communication including both how one picks up and disseminates ideas and information.   When retrograde energy tends to internalize the expression of the planet, with Mercury people are more likely to think about and go over ideas before outwardly expressing them.  Many writers are born with Mercury retrograde, often feeling more comfortable writing things down before verbalizing them.

Astrologically Libra is an air sign, one of communication, as well as  the sign of partnership, many seek a partner they can share and express ideas with.  There’s a tendency to  be more introspective while Mercury Is retrograde.   Thoughts often turn to both past events and  to those no longer in one’s life which can help enlighten an understanding in dealing with present relationships.  For as one grows, there’s similarities between those that one used to know and does now.   The difference is that there’s more awareness and as a result more harmony with those you are involved with and care about now.

On September 23rd Mercury retrogrades into nuance connected Virgo.   While Mercury is retrograde there’s more of a likelihood of not paying attention and glazing over important details.  So, take your time and go over whatever you are working on more carefully. The earth sign Virgo tends to focus on practical matters including work and health.   There’s a greater interest in one’s physical being, including exercise and diet but have noticed that there’s an increased  likelihood of making alterations in both areas when Mercury has gone direct and is no longer retrograde.   Paperwork initiated during a retrograde period is more likely to have errors.   If possible, it would be better to submit it after the retrograde is over.

Mercury rules tubes and wires  so both mechanical as well as technological items and areas are more likely to be problematic during a Mercury retrograde period.  Realize there’s always emergencies try to put off purchasing and acquiring new equipment during these times.  Paperwork and contracts are Mercurial, so if you can  try not to sign anything, particularly finalizing what is both important and not so important.

Libra rules the kidney and Virgo the pancreas so pay attention to what you are eating and drinking, which is good to always do but especially during this retrograde.  If possible,  medical or dental checkups should be put off while Mercury is retrograde,  as tests and diagnosis could be unclear.

On October 17 Mercury comes to 8 degrees and 55 minutes of Libra the place it went retrograde.  Things clear up even more, especially odds and ends, when Mercury comes to the place it went retrograde at.    So, while Mercury is retrograde look inside for it’s a time for reflection and insight.

Mercury will next be retrograde from December 29, 2022, until January 18, 2023, and then April 21 until May 14, 2023.

There is someone who might not be that close to you now, but just wait. They may surprise you by taking on a more intense role in your life. Maybe it is someone at work who begins to take an interest in your welfare. Maybe it is an acquaintance who sparks your attention. Keep your eyes open for wonderful possibilities, Aries.


Whatever fun pastime you focus on now will have a way of evolving into something more passionate and pleasurable than you expect. Tap into your artistic muse and see where it leads, Taurus. Sometimes we are seeking something light and frivolous but sometimes something incredibly passionate takes us to a totally new level.

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Plan a few family reunions over the next few weeks, Gemini. They are bound to be fun and will enable you to connect to those with whom you lost touch. There is something warm and magical about rekindling old ties and remembering happy past times. Use this time to make your surroundings more stable and foundational.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Cancers are usually deep thinkers and now, your ability to present facts in a practical manner has never been stronger. Form your personal positions on a variety of subjects and take them to the masses. Not only will you gather a huge following, you attain new levels of achievement. Today the town. Tomorrow the world.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Money can come to you more easily, Leo. But it is not because of luck or foggy good fortune. It will be because you have diligently worked towards it, focusing on doing the right research on investing, savings and strategizing. You can begin to see the pay offs now. And if you are late to start on this, don’t worry. You can start now.


You have never looked lovelier, Virgo. It seems like charm and grace have become your hallmarks. How can you best maximize all of this personal charisma and charm? Try reaching out and expanding your social network by meeting as many new people as possible. Some will be available to help you in a long term project.


There is someone working behind the scenes on your behalf, Libra. Do you need a helping hand in business, friendship or love? Ask the cosmos for guidance. Allow the spirits to assist you in any way that you may need help. In turn, focus more on doing good deeds for others. Any charitable efforts add to your good karma.


Your social life receives a boost. Suddenly there are some new, interesting people circling your orbit and new organizations that you might want to join. Life becomes more fulfilling and connective. But don’t sit at home waiting, Scorpio. Use this time to explore the possibilities. A little effort and outreach will have maximum positive impact.


Whatever you have been working towards professionally begins to gain traction, Sagittarius. Long term plans, projects and personal missions receive a boost and your public face becomes even more powerful and recognizable. There will be new opportunities. See which ones hold the most promise and make it work for you.


If you’re thinking of traveling or otherwise expanding your views and experiences, now is the best time to do that. Capricorns are ready to get out of their hum drum routine. Open yourself up to new ideas and exotic people. Let yourself feel liberated and unencumbered. Life is too short to sit at home and just wait for it to come.


There is something sparkling and fresh about the way you feel, Aquarius. This burst of love, lust, flirtation or whatever you want to call it, gives you a burst of energy and optimism. You can become high on life and ready to tackle any challenge. So why ask why? Follow your heart and your passions to see where it leads you.


Give certain relationships a second look, Pisces. Your ability to reconnect is stronger and successful. There are some situations that need a bit of tender loving care, a warm touch and even a strong embrace. It would be a shame to let some people faze out of your life. You soon know which is which, what is what and who is who.
