Mercury Retrograde in Vedic Astrology ~ Sam Geppi

We will have the Mercury retrograde from Aquarius to Capricorn on February 6th through the 27th. This is going to be a time where, based on the speed of Mercury and the proximity of it to the Earth, Mercury will appear to be moving backwards.

When this happens, things such as communications, and other kinds of technologies will tend to back up in our life. You want to try to get your information mercury-in-retrogradesystems together and make sure that what you are communicating with people is clear before Mercury goes retrograde. Because wherever we are on the “sloppiness cycle” relative to what a retrograde planet rules, we have to deal with that when the planet goes retrograde.

If someone is a Gemini or Virgo, it will affect them a little more because that is their ruling planet, which means their whole nature revolves around Mercury. So for those people, Mercury retrograde can be pretty disruptive. But it can also be a time of enormous introspection, as the retrograde planet is always compelling us to go inward.

I am generally neutral about retrograde, because the truth of the matter is, retrograde planets have enormous upside potential if we are willing to be introspective and reflect on things.

One of the most beneficial things to do with a powerful Mercury (like when he is retrograde), is repeat Mantras.
