Mercury Retrograde through the Signs

We enter Mercury Retrograde period today, the 17th September, and will stay here until the 9th October. Retrograde energies are felt for a week or so on either side of this period. You can read on the general influence of Mercury in Libra Retrograde in my previous article.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra is when we reassess, reconsider, readjust, and rework, issues around relationships and relating. A time to go deeper, fuller, and more meaningfully, into our thoughts and conversations with others. With Pluto hanging around, they are often uncomfortable, if necessary, conversations.
