Mercury Retrograde in Vedic Astrology
Release Date: 02/03/2014
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 that are in relation with certain kinds of peer groups and whatnot, will tend to back up in our life. You want to try to get your information together and make sure that what you are communicating with people is clear before Mercury goes retrograde. Because what happens is, wherever we are on the sloppiness cycle relative to what the planet rules, suppose in the general sense and in our chart, we have to deal with that when the planet goes retrograde.
For instance, 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 that planet. So for those people, Mercury retrograde can be disruptive.
I would like to be neutral about these things because the truth of the matter is, retrograde planets have enormous upside potential if we are willing to be introspective and reflect on things.
