Get ready for Mercurial Magic! Mercury stations retrograde at 4 degrees Gemini, Tuesday, May 10th, beginning our second of three Mercury retrogrades in 2022 moving from an air sign back into an earth sign. It stations direct at 26 degrees Taurus on June 3rd. That means the overarching theme of our Mercury retrogrades this year is taking ideas and making them real - "earthing" them.
The messenger, magician, and trickster is trickiest when stationing, so watch out Monday & Tuesday for miscommunications, missed communications, tech and travel mishaps, and even vehicle/appliance issues. Think twice before speaking or pressing send, and make sure you're sending the right message to the right contact!
Mercury rules the mind, thoughts, and communication. During RX, it doesn't actually go backwards, it makes a loop. Think about it like we are going back to get information or some message we missed or overlooked on the first pass through - there's a review as Mercury backtracks over the recent degrees of the zodiac it just covered, but it's always moving forward rather than technically backward.
We kick this retrograde off with Mercury stationing in square to the moon, so emotions influencing thoughts as we move towards a Scorpio full moon eclipse will feel extra intense.
When Mercury stations direct 6/3, it will do so in happy aspect to the moon, bringing intuitive thinking, but in square to Saturn, bringing possible restrictions to our ideas and plans to move forward, maybe bringing misunderstandings or limits to "being heard." This is a growth aspect with Saturn the teacher showing us what we need to move forward in a more solid and well thought out fashion.
Major Points of Mercury RX 5/10 - 6/3
5/21: What project or special focus wants to start now for the 2 months?
5/19: Optimism. Where can you expand now? What opportunities are incoming?
5/23: Tap into the passion & drive to make it happen!
5/25: Step into your power; uncover issues, find solutions; Eliminate & regenerate!
Special Note for 5/22 to 5/27
Mercury will be moving backwards over the final degree of Taurus from 5/22 to 5/25 - Mercury is mind, thinking, communication, but also everyday money. Taurus is the Venus-ruled earth sign of self-worth & resources (finances).
The 25th - 27th, we have Venus, ruler of Taurus, in square to Pluto RX.
Watch out for issues around misunderstandings in love & money, and/or bad news or some sort of crisis in these that even affects self-worth.
