This Mercury Retrograde period starts in Aquarius but will retrograde back to Capricorn, issuing in a year of Mercury retrograde in earth signs. Each one will be a time to slow down and look at what we are trying to make or un-make. It has a very ‘real world’ feel to it: Not happening in the mind alone. The general Mercury Retrograde theory is that we should be reflective at this time. In this case we should be reflective about what we are making our world into: And how. Most definitely we should think twice and hammer once.
Mercury retrogrades back into Capricorn on the 8th. Bringing in the ‘real world’ theme.
On the 14th it will conjunct the Sun which is the most important day of a retrograde period because it is when, if you listen, you will hear what you need to hear regarding your issues. It will also trine Jupiter on the same day suggesting a really viable means of accomplishing the task.
Square Uranus on the 20th which adds a bit of chaos to the retrograde period.
Conjunct Pluto on the 22nd suggesting that this is a ‘for real’ time and don’t pretend otherwise!
Mercury will go direct on the 25th and do these things again once more; which will be the ‘proof’ of what we learned during the retrograde.
