Mercury Retrograde in Gemini:

Time to Unplug

Mercury will turn retrograde in Gemini on May 10th, 2022. On May 22nd, 2022, it will move backwards into Taurus, before turning direct in Taurus on June 3rd, 2022.

Mercury retrogrades often – three or four times every year, in fact, typically for about three weeks at a time. This means that – as viewed from the earth – Mercury seems to be moving backward across the sky. It’s isn’t really, no planet ever moves backward, but the illusion is powerfully symbolic for astrologers.

Why Does Mercury Retrograde Matter?

During Mercury retrograde periods, we can press a pause button on life – it’s an opportunity to slow down and to re-think.

Because Mercury rules our minds – including the way we think and the way we communicate – it can be difficult to make yourself understood correctly during Mercury retrograde. Communication networks such as the internet and transport systems can be subject to outages and delays. Traditionally, this is often thought of as an irritating or frustrating period, but in fact, Mercury retrograde can bring benefits as well as issues.

What is the Significance of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini?

Of all the Mercury retrograde periods, it’s Mercury retrograde in Gemini that offers the best opportunity to unplug. Turn off your tech. You don’t need to be connected and available to all and sundry at every hour of the day.

During Mercury retrograde in Gemini, take time out to benefit from the quieter pace of life. Communications may be muddled or confused, but if you take things more slowly you’ll be less likely to be caught out by this.

Expect decisions to take longer too – when Mercury retrogrades in this air sign, not known for its decisiveness at the best of times, many of us will be second-guessing ourselves like crazy and unwilling to commit to a firm decision.

For self-care during this retrograde period, meditation is helpful, as is creative writing of any kind. It’s a good time to learn a new language, as you will find focus easier, with fewer distractions.

How Does Mercury Retrograde in Gemini Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

Each zodiac sign will experience this Mercury retrograde period slightly differently, depending on the exact placement of Mercury in an individual’s natal chart. However, overall, there is a sense of peace and a slowdown in the frenetic pace of life – provided we allow that to happen.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

Because this Mercury retrograde period occurs in your communication zone, you may find yourself more affected by delays, tech glitches, appliance breakdowns and misunderstandings than some other signs. Patience is a virtue! Allow extra time for anything important that you need to accomplish during these few weeks, and check details carefully. Don’t rely on others to have things under control, because they may not. Get plenty of sleep too, as you may find yourself feeling more restless than normal.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

This is a good period to think carefully about how you’re spending or saving your money. Mercury retrogrades in your values zone and if you’ve been spending a lot on frivolous items or comfort-spending, you may start to feel concerned about that now. Practice mindfulness to remind yourself of your true state of abundance. You are far more blessed than you realize, and not only materially – understanding and reflecting on that during this period will help you when it comes to manifesting material abundance too.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)

When Mercury retrograde in your own sign, your sense of identity may suffer a little. Because you’re less sure of yourself and your communication style, it’s easy to inadvertently offend others. However, you more than most signs will benefit from the enforced slow down this period brings, and you will definitely benefit from cutting back on your tech use. Return to good old-fashioned phone calls or face to face chats, or even letter writing. Less need to be in a rush will do wonders for your mental health.  

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

With Mercury turning retrograde in your most spiritual zone, this is likely to be a few weeks filled with vivid dreams, strange sensations and corner of the eye glimpses of the spirit world. Dream interpretation would be useful now, and so would past life regression therapy. Above all, turn inward and seek some stillness away from the craziness of the world. This is your reminder to unplug, slow down, retreat and let the world turn without you. Refresh yourself.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)

This Mercury retrograde period is likely to lead to miscommunications between friends, colleagues and your wider social circle. Be careful with social media in particular and try not to post in anger or frustration! Gossip is rife and rumors are everywhere, but you know better than to give them headspace. Give friends the benefit of the doubt if they are acting oddly; you probably are too. Overall, it’s a time to slow down with your social activity, to give yourself some breathing space from others just for a short while.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)

Mercury retrograde in your career zone sounds like a disaster waiting to happen, Virgo, but in fact, this can be a thoughtful, productive period, especially if you sense that you need to re-set or re-calibrate your career path in order to match your true calling. Don’t be surprised if you find that your work responsibilities increase during this period, even though you might expect the opposite. The key is to stay calm, stay organized and keep on keeping on – you’ve got this. But if it feels wrong, use this time to re-assess where you’re heading.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)

Travel could be problematic during this Mercury retrograde period, Libra, as it affects your travel and adventure zone. You may have to scale back plans, or at the very least check them carefully and ensure that you have plans B and C to hand. That being said, there’s no reason why this can’t still be a happy and interesting period for you – you may just need to find your new experiences and new faces closer to home. Look around at what you take for granted and find the everyday wonder in things and people you no longer really notice.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

This Mercury retrograde period affects one of the most psychologically sensitive areas of your chart, Scorpio, and you may feel highly emotional during this time. Old feelings of angst, regret, bitterness or heartbreak can be re-activated, but as ever with astrology, pain comes only to teach and to lead the way to something better. Process those feelings now, whether informally or through therapy, so that you can free yourself from them. It’s a very good time for self-analysis and self-growth, but you must take care not to be caught up in negativity.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

Mercury retrograde in your love zone doesn’t mean a meltdown in your relationship, Sagittarius. Well, not always! It’s true that you may be feeling touchier and more likely to argue in this period – but you are also in some ways a better communicator, because your emotions are more easily expressed, and you are not filtering them through logic. This is a good time for heart-to-heart talks in your love life, and for honesty, searing though it may be, with those you love the most.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)

This Mercury retrograde affects your everyday routines zone, so you can probably expect some of the traditional upsets with tech, appliances, communications and travel. However, your calm nature will help you take this in your stride and you’re unlikely to be too bothered by it. Create moments of stillness and gratitude in your everyday life and take more notice than usual of the beauty that is all around you. Because this is also your health zone, it could be a good time to re-think your fitness regime.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)

Creatively, you may feel stuck during this Mercury retrograde period, Aquarius. The brilliant ideas you can usually pull from nowhere seem just tantalizingly, frustratingly out of reach. Don’t panic, it won’t last. Instead of trying to force your creativity, focus instead on creating more joy in your life. Relax, recharge, chill out doing your favorite things with your favorite people. Happiness is wherever you choose to find it, so shift your focus and be happy about the life you lead.

 

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

Mercury retrogrades in your family zone, Pisces, providing a golden opportunity to re-think family dynamics, inter-family relationships and all kinds of other tricky stuff. If there have been difficulties with family members, this influence should allow people time and space to reflect and re-think. It is probably not, however, a great period if you’re trying to push through a property sale, a house move or other practical domestic matters. If you can accept in advance that delays are quite likely, this may soften the blow.

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
