Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius:

The Power of Changing Your Mind

Mercury turns retrograde three or four times a year, for several weeks at a time. This time, Mercury is retrograde in Aquarius from January 30th - February 21st, 2020. What actually is Mercury retrograde and how will this retrograde period affect your zodiac sign?

What is Mercury Retrograde?

Retrograde motion in astrology is a period of time when a planet, as seen from earth, appears to be moving backwards across the sky.

No planet ever does move backwards in its orbit, it’s just an optical illusion – but since symbolism is everything in astrology, this optical illusion matters.

All planets have periods of retrograde motion, although Mercury retrograde is the most commonly talked about. Because Mercury rules our thinking and intellectual processes, as well as our modern communication devices, it can appear to have quite a noticeable effect.

Not all zodiac signs will feel every Mercury retrograde period acutely, however – it depends on the sign in which Mercury is retrograding, and that sign’s status in your own birth chart, as to how keenly you will feel the effects.

What is the Astrological Significance of Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius?

When Mercury turns retrograde, the energy of the planet is turned backwards upon itself, or internally.

When Mercury retrograde happens in Aquarius, this means that the explorative, questioning nature of Mercury in Aquarius is turned inwards – in other words, we start to explore and to ask questions of our own nature.

Mercury retrograde in Aquarius is a very good time for examining our own intellectual thought processes, and the many unconscious biases or prejudices we all carry at various points in our lives.

Use this energy to uncover what your own prejudices might be, and to get rid of them.

Indulge your curiosity and be ready to change your mind if you discover that you have been wrong about something – that’s a very powerful skill to have, and one which is much undervalued.

How Does Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

Each zodiac sign will experience Mercury retrograde in Aquarius differently, and not all signs will feel it strongly.

However, in general, all of us can potentially discover things about ourselves that we didn’t know or recognize before, and we can try to fix those where necessary.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Think about your motives for interacting socially. If there’s any chance that you have a hero complex, or unconscious biases about who you choose to mix with, now is your chance to recognize these and to fix them.

It may feel uncomfortable, but this is also an opportunity to apologize to a friend.

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Use this retrograde period to think about where you’re heading in your career. If you need further study or qualifications, research that now so that when this period ends, you can get going again.

This is also a good time to acknowledge your unconscious drives regarding your career, as well as any external influences on where you’re heading.

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

If your travel options are somewhat restricted during this Mercury retrograde period, you can escape instead through your imagination. Daydreams may be especially pleasurable at this time, although that does mean that concentration is difficult.

It’s a good time to practice the power of positive visualization or manifestation, however, as you have a strong mental image of what you want to achieve.

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Processing unconscious or long-held trauma is a productive thing to do during this Mercury retrograde period, and you’ll find talking therapies of any kind to be valuable and useful.

It’s also a very positive time for self-analysis and for looking objectively at your bad habits or tricky personal qualities. Strive to be the best that you can be, armed with good psychological insight into your own self.

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

In this period, look at the messages you are sending to those you love – not just verbally, but nonverbally. Do your actions meet up with what you actually want to say? Do you treat family members and loved ones the way you really should?

Likewise, look at how others are treating you, and resolve to accept only respect and affection.

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Getting organized could be difficult while Mercury retrograde transits Aquarius, Virgo, so you may have to be more spontaneous than you like to be. Go with the flow - you may even learn to like it.

This transit teaches you that not everything can be controlled; by extension, you may start to understand that some things should not be controlled, even when you have that option.

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

This Mercury retrograde likely inhibits your sense of fun somewhat, so you may feel a little bit tired and jaded. However, it’s a good time to get creative, using your imagination and your depth of feeling to express yourself on paper or through arts and crafts in some way.

Journaling is a good option at this time too, as it will help you to organize your thoughts and stay on track during a slightly fuzzy period.

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

This retrograde transit affects your family zone, so any existing family tensions may be magnified with frustration and bad tempers.

However, that in itself makes this a powerful and productive time for healing family rifts by being the first one to say sorry – even when it’s not really your fault. Do the right thing to relieve tension, because time is too short to hold grudges.

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

Since it falls in your communication zone, this is a difficult retrograde for you, Sagittarius. You may well find that your words get twisted or your devices let you down.

Resort to good, old-fashioned communication, preferably face-to-face. Say what you mean and mean what you say – and seek clarification from others if the message gets muddled along the way.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

During this Mercury retrograde period, you’re learning something new about your attitude towards finances and your materialistic motivation. Don’t be surprised if your income takes a dip or if you’re forced to address uncomfortable financial issues.

Don’t panic either, Capricorn; this is a very short-lived influence, but it can be useful for re-setting your values and for helping you understand what matters most.

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

A Mercury retrograde in your own sign can lead to a slight loss of confidence, especially in public speaking or in social interaction. On the plus side, this is a very good time for self-analysis, or indeed for learning how to communicate better.

There is a danger of over-thinking everything, however, so keep talking and keep sharing your thoughts with those who love you the most.

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

This Mercury retrograde falls in your spiritual zone and is a window into your higher consciousness, Pisces. Pay careful attention to signs or signals from your dreams, your daydreams, your doodles and others sudden flashes of insight.

Synchronicity is strong around you now too, so you may notice an increased incidence of songs, symbols or other objects which are meaningful to you as a Pisces.

Kelli has the extraordinary ability to assess each person and their particular charts and explain how and why astrology works and how it can help us in our day to day lives. I have studied astrology for many years and love the lightning thought processes that Kelli can keep altogether in one session for all of us. Thank you Kelli 😊Cached

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

Giving updates, constantly interacting at all times super engaged and is a support to those who not only want to learn on a personal level as well as collectively in a beautiful community. An hour jam packed of info on what's occurring in the heavens, obtaining certain times with when the energies kick in. A true blessing and so much gratitude.Cached

    Kelli is so "on point". I've come to trust her instincts as I do my own. The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached
