Mercuy rules Gemini and Virgo and is associated with communication and transportation

Mercury is associated with communication, information, the way we interact with others and our surroundings and neighborhood. This includes local travel, schedules and our relationship with our siblings. When Mercury is retrograde, there is a greater tendency for issues to develop in these areas collectively and personally in our lives. Only about 25% to 30% of people are directly affected during a Mercury Retrograde Cycle.

The Mercury Retrograde Cycle

Mercury Retrograde is that period of time in which the Planet Mercury appears to be going backwards against the stars in the sky. This usually occurs 3 or sometimes even 4 times in a year.

Why does Mercury appear to go backwards?

Mercury's orbit is closest to the sun, so it completes its orbit in about 88 days, compared to the earth's of about 365 days. As a result, from our perspective we first experience mercury moving forwards as it passes by the earth on our side of the sun, and then it seems to slow down and begin to move backwards as it races along on the farther side of the sun from our perspective.

The path of Mercury Retrograde explained. Mercury moves from its direct path, where it enters the preshadow until it slows down to become the Mercury Station, and the retrograde phase. This ends with the Direct Mercury Station and then follows through the post shadow. Image Copyright 2011 by Roman Oleh Yaworsky

 

How to Use the 2013 Mercury Retrograde Calendar

The Mercury Retrograde Pre-Shadow phase is shown in blue, with violet indicating where the effect tends to be felt more strongly.

The Mercury Retrograde phase is shown in light red, with the time that Mercury is in Retrograde Station indicated in dark red. During the retrograde phase, a darker color is used to highlight the time when Mercury is moving more slowly and when its effect tends to be felt more strongly.

While Mercury is still moving slowly and has not speeded up, the effect of this phase tens to be felt more strongly and is indicated with a darker color.
