Get Ready For Mercury Retrograde On September 9th
Mercury Retrogrades are the most popular and known periods where the astrology world finds itself going backwards. Mercury decides to move backwards on September 9th in part of a larger conversation of Retrograde Season to join Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto and Uranus in their backspins
We Only Go Backwards
Mercury, the planet of communication, holds the power of our words and what we want to communicate. It also ties into timing, travels, and the different ways we spread our voices. When this planet goes into retrograde misunderstandings, delays, accidents and miscommunication is bound to happen.
On this day, this chaotic energy will move into the sign of Libra for the upcoming two weeks. Libra itself is the sign of relationships, contracts, partnerships and establishing balance. Now with Mercury entering into this mix, the existing balance may topple over.
Being Careful Is Your Cheat Code
A lot of past issues in our relationships may resurface, whether that be romantic or platonic. Boundaries in our relationships may be tested. Diplomacy and tact will be your best friend. In your relationships be extra careful when readdressing old issues, to not cause new wounds and to rightly heal old ones. If you go about it the right way this will become a great time to strengthen and rebuild your connections.
Contracts and negotiations may get stunted, so practice patience and try to find a middle ground for everyone instead of stubbornly pushing forward. Mercury Retrogrades are times of review, where slowing down allows us to observe our surroundings more carefully.
Observe where you need to rebuild the foundations of your life to be stronger whether that means renegotiating a contract or learning to communicate more effectively in your relationships. You need to remember to stay balanced even if things tip off the scale. Being considerate and conservative about what you are doing instead of rushing through, will help you effectively deal with this retrograde.
