Mercury Retrograde – 14th January 2022
The timing of a Mercury Retrograde always happens when you don’t need one. Well, hold on tight, as instead of the usual three, this year Mercury is throwing in a bonus fourth retrograde!
Yes, that’s right – Four Mercury Retrogrades for 2022! There you are, just settling into a new year with a renewed outlook and THIS comes along to burst your bubble. Thanks, Mercury! 🙄
Can we expect the usual cross-talk and misunderstandings? Will faces you’d rather forget from your past reappear? And will the usual technical issues arise to confound us? Read on below!
What does Mercury Retrograde mean?
The Mercury Retrograde first came to prominence through mythology, Mercury was the messenger of the Roman Gods. These retrogrades usually last 3 weeks.
The word Retrograde comes from the Latin word ‘retrogradus‘, which translates as “backward step.” This 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!
One Retrograde – Two Parts
So, with the backwards feeling of the Mercury Retrograde, the same thing applies to the sun signs that we are currently in.
For example, right now, at this current point in January, we are in the sign of Capricorn. But in retrograde terms, we are already in the next sign to follow, that being Aquarius!
Then the reversal of that happens midway through the retrograde, with Aquarius giving way to the previous sun sign of Capricorn. While the rest of us are in Aquarius! The two parts are as follows:
- 14th January – 26th January: Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius.
- 27th January – 3rd February: Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn.
The Mercury Retrograde Quadrilogy
There will be four Mercury Retrogrades in 2022. Our astrologers say that, although these retrogrades can bring frustrations and trouble, they can also be a good influence on us too.
The astral energy around this time can give us the renewed opportunity to see these from a new perspective or a different angle. This can be a positive influence on what we want.
Use them as a way of pausing for thought and cation, before you decide to proceed. The dates for all the Mercury Retrogrades that will be occurring this year are as follows:
- 14th January to 3rd February 2022.
- 10th May to 2nd June 2022.
- 9th September to 2nd October 2022.
- 29th December 2022 to 18th January 2023.
For the next few weeks, this retrograde may want to ruffle your feathers with tech issues. Be sure to have your phones and tablets backed up as a precaution!
Give yourself a break too, a self-care day of pampering and relaxation wouldn’t go a miss! Revisit some things that you have previously put off by tying up loose ends.
The time will soon pass!
When is the Next Mercury Retrograde?
The next retrograde will arrive on 10th May. What will this mean for us then? Be sure to find in our next instalment of the Mercury Retrograde Quadrilogy of 2022!
