Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius is here and there is no reason to freak out when you know how to use this energy in your business. This is such a potent energy to rethink the future, specifically to answer the big questions around how you connect with your larger communities over shared values AND how you choose to empower others through your privileges to bring forth equitable success. I know, it sounds big, but you, spiritual entrepreneur are here to act on change!

In this episode:

From January 30, 2021 – February 20, 2021 Mercury will highlight Aquarius 26° – Aquarius 11° so that you can rethink equitable success and your role in creating this new future.

As Mercury makes its first retrograde cycle of 2021 it will be activating all the Aquarian energy already there, Sun (creativity), Jupiter (vision), Saturn (structure) and Venus (values) giving us the energy to rethink our capacity to create a new future that we believe in with those who share our values of equitable success.

Sound big and vast?

Yes, but it is possible!

What is Mercury Retrograde?

  • Cycle between Mercury and the Sun
  • From our perspective on earth, Mercury appears to be going backwards
  • Happens 3x a year as Mercury zips around the sun much faster than us – about 88 earth days
  • Mercury, a personal planet goes retrograde, it’s at its closest point to Earth and we feel it on a personal level
  • Generally Mercury transits are quick
    • Fastest and closest, that’s why we feel it so much
    • How we process info
    • Messenger to our soul, never far away from our conscious
  • Mercury ruler of Gemini and Virgo – In Gemini it wants to know everything and then moves it into Virgo our body to organize and act upon the information
    • In Retrograde, the process is reversed. Process in body to intellectualize

Why Mercury Retrogrades Are So Important

Our energy to receive and express information needs to reset 3x a year.

We are inundated with info so we get to give ourselves permission to slow down, recalibrate and re-do the things that need attention.⁠

We get to:

  • Redo
  • Reorganize
  • Reflect
  • Rewrite
  • Rethink
    Anything re-

Such a lovely way for the Universe to give us the energy to make sure we are on the right path. And if we’re not to pivot!

When Mercury is retrograde, our thought processes, communications, short distance travel may take a bit longer or misfire.

We may experience our ability to think and communicate in a different way than usual.
