Mercury Retrograde in Gemini – 29th May 2021
“Oh no, the Mercury Retrograde!” Usually, when we hear or read those words, it doesn’t inspire much confidence! After all, this year we are moving closer to fewer restrictions and more freedoms, so could this be a spanner in the works? Well, far from retrograding backwards, this is more of a few bumps in the road, leading to potential misunderstandings. Like the recent Super Moon, it’s a time of truths to be spoken!
Appearing in the air sign of Gemini, a sign known for addressing problems head-on, this may apply to this particular retrograde. Think of it in terms of being a series of hiccups than an actual setback. There are always the usual technology frustrations and lack of direct messaging but in the grand scheme of things, we have faced far more challenges in the past year! We are still moving, very slowly but quite surely!
When is the Mercury Retrograde?
For 2021 there will be three instances of a Mercury Retrograde, which interestingly enough, all happen to be Air Signs. The dates that it will occur in the UK are as follows,
- 30th January 2021 – 20th February 2021 (in the air sign of Aquarius)
- 29th May 2021 – 22nd June 2021 (in the air sign of Gemini)
- 27th September 2021 – 18th October 2021 (in the air sign of Libra)
What Does the Mercury Retrograde Mean?
Mercury is known as the Roman God of messages. The word Retrograde comes from the Latin word retrogradus, which translates as “backward step.” As it suggests, Retrograde is the term for when a planet appears to reverse its orbit, from the perspective of our planet.
But of course, Mercury is not actually travelling backwards; it just appears to be. Imagine two planets moving side by side. One moving slower than the other, giving the appearance of moving backwards against the faster moving one!
Mercury Retrograde in Gemini
This is the second of three Mercury Retrogrades for this year. Following the first one in Aquarius, this Retrograde is square Neptune which highlights that you can’t trust everything that you might read or hear! It can bring confusion and even deception.
So clear communication is of vital importance. Shoot from the hip and don’t muddle your words, the chances of misinterpretation is higher than normal!
Remember, the Mercury Retrograde is only at its with us for a few weeks and, coincidently, finishes just in time for the lifting of social distancing and getting back to a kind of normality (fingers crossed!). Now that is rewarding!
Your Horoscopes in this Mercury Retrograde
Mar 20th – Apr 20th
As if the stubbornness of Aries was not enough, now that the retrograde is in motion, the restlessness seems extreme and the inadequate mood seems to be a daily occurrence in their case.
Apr 20th – May 21st
This might affect the communication skills of Taurus natives in most regards and doesn’t allow them to express themselves as they want. This may cause tensions and unrest in a couple’s life or with work.
May 21st – Jun 21st
For you, it means that you are not facing a beneficial period for social growth, communication, personal project development or for improving the relationships with your loved ones.
Jun 21st – Jul 23rd
If usually, you move one step forward and three steps back, now all the steps you make are sideways and not even one forward if you are stubborn to jump headfirst in taking important decisions and initiating new projects.
Jul 23rd – Aug 23rd
You may no longer understand what is happening with those around you. Also, you may hesitate and don’t know where to start and what to do. Try to analyze things better and try to detach a little from all the issues.
Aug 23rd – Sep 23rd
The nervous system is the most affected and communication in the home space is not efficient at all. You may find you can’t manage to express yourself as you should, thus misunderstood most of the time.
Sep 23rd – Oct 23rd
You may have a tendency to change the communication strategy with your life partner and your family. It would be better to avoid important decisions and conclusions at least during the following period.
Oct 23rd – Nov 22nd
This period steps out of line in terms of the relationships with family and friends. It is yet a good time for redecorating your home. Also for strategies that would help you be more efficient and more creative.
Nov 22nd – Dec 22nd
The agitation and general state of Sagittarius natives significantly increase during this period, which always gives us a hard time. Try to keep some positivity if you can.
Dec 22nd – Jan 20th
Surprisingly, Capricorns are a little fortunate. During this period, they may solve some of the problems that occurred recently and easily develop new partnerships that in the end will prove to be very auspicious.
Jan 20th – Feb 18th
Misunderstandings regarding the communication with your life partner, but also with the professional partners may occur. It would be better to avoid as much as possible taking important decisions.
Feb 18th – Mar 20th
Pisces have the tendency to withdraw and internalize from the sight of others. They may feel the need to be alone and to think peacefully about what they need to do if they have something to do.
The Last Retrograde for 2021
You may be pleased to know, there remains just one more Mercury Retrograde for this year! Beginning on the 27th September 2021 to the 18th October 2021 (in the air sign of Libra). The Mercury Retrograde Trilogy finally wraps up! To be concluded in a new blog!
