The Most Intense Mercury Retrograde (Again) Of The Year Is Around The Corner; Here’s How To Prepare & Keep Calm

Everyone loves to blame everything on Mercury retrograde.

Ex resurfaced in your DMs? Mercury is in retrograde. Your spam filter caught an important email? Mercury is in retrograde. You discovered you had food stuck in your teeth after leaving an important job interview? Mercury is in retrograde!

However, not all Mercury retrogrades are created equal, and the sign that Mercury retrograde is in can have a significant impact on the overall vibe of the “backward” spin. For example, the second Mercury retrograde of 2023 will occur in the stubborn sign of Taurus from April 21 to May 14, bringing interesting energy into the bull season.

The vibe [of Mercury retrograde in Taurus] will feel incredibly slow at times, like running through mud. This is because Taurus is an earth sign with a slow pace. At times, the energy will feel extremely erratic due to Uranus, the planet of electricity. This energy dichotomy will feel like driving with the brakes on one moment and super-fast the next.

That can be perplexing. But, if we use the right strategies, we can download some pretty interesting insights that will help us grow later in the year.

First and foremost, prepare to slow down. March marked a shift in our perspective and energy levels as a result of two major transits (Saturn moving into Pisces and Pluto moving into Aquarius), and with the warmer weather underway, we’ve all been happy to run ahead at full speed all day long. But now we might need to take a break. We’ll all be tired now, and we should all be aware that productivity will slow down in all industries during these three weeks. We will need to rest more than usual and take care of our bodies to avoid exhaustion.

We recommend being more mindful of your screen time (we warn that some shocking news is on the way, so we’ll have to be extra cautious to take scrolling breaks); and, because Taurus represents the body’s senses, engage in self-care for all five of them. Listening to music, eating healthy foods, and practicing self-care are all important right now.

Furthermore, this Mercury retrograde will initially conjunct Uranus. Because Uranus is the planet of technology, we can expect our computers to go haywire and our messages to be lost. Mishaps in technology are common during Mercury retrograde, but this time will be worse than usual.

Next, anticipate change. This Mercury retrograde will be more intense than usual because it is conjunct Uranus and overlaps with the first eclipse season of 2023 — astrological events that almost always cause major changes. Having Mercury go retrograde at the same time as eclipse season will be incredibly transformative for all of us, regardless of our zodiac sign.

And finally, prepare to examine your budget closely. If you want to blame it on tax season, Mercury retrograde in Taurus will encourage you to make some wise budgeting decisions. Because Taurus is a money-related zodiac sign, many of us will find ourselves exceeding our personal or business budgets. While we may have to cut back for the time being, understanding our limitations will set us up for success. Taurus is the zodiac sign that Jupiter will occupy later this year, from May 2023 to May 2024, so understanding our financial capabilities and limitations will position us for future success.

Mercury retrograde may affect different signs in different ways. The fixed signs — Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius — will be hit harder, as Mercury challenges them to change their minds and see things from a fresh perspective. Meanwhile, Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, and Capricorn will benefit more [during Mercury retrograde in Taurus] because both Mercury and Uranus assist them in coming up with out-of-the-box solutions to their problems.

Mercury’s retrograde period ends on May 14, but it will remain in Taurus until June 11, when it will enter Gemini. Prepare yourself for the retrograde’s end. Mercury will be in conjunction with the Lunar North Node of Destiny as it turns direct. This is fantastic news for those who feel disconnected from their true path. The messages we receive and the people we meet now could have a huge and positive impact on us.

In other words, we may emerge from this retrograde with the impression that our lives are about to change. Who doesn’t enjoy a pre-summer uprising?
