After what seems like a long year, 2022 comes to a close with Mercury retrograde, the universal scapegoat.
We’ll be coping with communication troubles from Dec 29 to Jan 18, 2023, as a result of Mercury’s roughly three-week throw in the earth sign Capricorn.
Much of 2023 may be forecast since astrology derives meaning from the cosmic cycle. The moon will go through its phases, the sun will go through all 12 zodiac signs, from Aries to Pisces, and Mercury will turn retrograde once more. Nearly four hours after the start of the planetary backspin, Mercury retrograde makes its initial contact with Venus.
There are three Mercury retrogrades in 2023:
April 21, 2023, in Taurus
August 23, 2023, in Virgo
December 13, 2023, in Capricorn and Sagittarius
Mercury Retrograde In January 2023
The year 2023 begins with Mercury in retrograde (which began on Dec. 29). Up to the conclusion of the retrograde on January 18, it will be challenging to kickstart undertakings or get our resolutions flowing in full force.
Mercury Retrograde In April 2023
The second retrograde of the year takes place in Taurus, the earth sign, from April 21 to May 14. We will be required to review our financial situation and spending patterns at this point. We are learning how to implement and manage budgets since the money comes in and the money goes out.
Mercury Retrograde In August 2023
The Mercurial backspin for this summer lasts from August 23 to September 15 in Virgo. Anxieties and longing for solitude might increase when Mercury is retrograde in Virgo.
Due to Virgo’s fluid sign and tendency to grab onto other people’s emotions, the mischievous planet will give us the impression as though the burden of the world is on our shoulders.
Mercury Retrograde In December 2023
Mercury will glide from Capricorn back into Sagittarius from December 13 to January 1, 2024. (Mercury will re-enter Sagittarius on Dec. 23). Travel plans for the holidays may be affected by this planetary moonwalk. You may encounter unforeseen diversions when Mercury backs up into intrepid Sagittarius.
All astrological signs will be affected by this Mercury retrograde, but Taurus and Gemini will experience it the most. Mercury enters Virgo’s sign of retrograde motion on August 23, 2023.
You’ll pause during this period to consider what you already know and what you still need to learn to lead the life you choose. That can entail enrolling in the free courses that your employer keeps giving out to gain new skills and be promoted, or it might even entail returning to school. But it’s not only a job issue.
For your growth, you could feel compelled to study more. For example, you might decide to start taking guitar lessons or read Anna Karenina. You’re all for it if it helps you build your knowledge base. The most affected signs during this Mercury retrograde will be Virgo and Pisces.
On December 13, 2023, Mercury will begin its retrograde motion in Capricorn before moving into Sagittarius. Planning can help you cope with this retrograde the best; allow yourself enough time to deal with traffic, aircraft delays, and missed connections. The most essential thing is to relax.
