Mercury Retrograde August 30th to September 22nd, 2016
Mercury goes retrograde and this transit has such a bad reputation, but truly it is just a normal pattern + cycle of our life. In fact, Mercury retrograde is very necessary for helping us shift our focus and learning the role of Mercury is key.
Mercury is the planet associated with all forms of communication, it rules over how we express ourselves + how we think and how we communicate our ideas and feelings to the outside world. It corresponds to different things in different areas of application, such as it’s association with the lungs and hands in medical astrology, the media in a natal chart, or the electrical system in a car. In human beings, Mercury is identified with the nervous system and also all forms of sensory input. So when Mercury goes retrograde, this planetary shift will actually help us to also shift our focus away from expressing outwards and into expressing inwards. Don’t be afraid to take the journey!
