Mercury turns Retrograde December 29 at 4:32 m EST at 24 degrees 24′ 21′ CAPRICORN until January 18, 2023 at 8:12 am where it turns Direct at 8 degrees 09′. This is a very interesting Mercury Retrograde as MERCURY EXACTLY conjuncts the planet of love VENUS.
Our hearts and our minds rewind together. PLUTO is also conjunct Mercury and Venus at 27+ degrees on the U.S. Natal Pluto degree. Check out those degrees in your natal chart to see precisely how and where and with what aspects the Mercury Retrograde will affect your Venusian things money, earnings, self-worth, and love life,
I know all of these fakeish astrology websites and TikTok’s will tell you your ex is coming back with Mercury Retrograde to Venus, and this might be possible, but its more about reeling in fish already on the line or casting them away while Mercury is Retrograde. You will certainly be re-thinking and retesting and recontextualizing all those old romantic last-night talks with big promises of a long-term Capricorn like a rock future.
MERCURY will take until February 7th until it bypasses 24 degrees Capricorn and its really full speed ahead, Captain.
This definitely indicates a slowdown in the Venus-ruled economy or government backtracking, redoing, recounting, rescinding, reviewing etc., especially while MARS is still RETROGRADE at 9 degrees GEMINI and will remain Retro until January 12.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT MAKING ANY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS FOR 2023 JUST YET. ITS SIMPLY NOT IN DIVINE TIMING. Wait until after January 18 when both Mercury and Mars are moving directly.
CAPRICORN, GEMINI AND VIRGO
Feel this Retrograde’s impact the most. ALL CARDINAL signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, feel it most from 22-25 degrees.
Don’t be scared of MERCURY RETROGRADE’s they are not disasters. When you know what their specific purpose is you can work with this energy for your own benefits.
Mercury is the Messenger of the Gods. The planet symbolizes our brains, the way we communicate, think, analyze and process information. Mercury governors merchants, social media and all sales. The first four letters of the word indicate the connection.
Mercury Retrogrades are welcome times for our overstimulated brains to get some much-needed R & R, just as we need to sleep at night. Think of Mercury Retrograde as a reboot for your computer, which is your mind your OS, out with the old to make space for the new. This is a good thing at the end of the year.
Review old loves won and lost, review your values, and rethink your career and long-term goals. Remember that with Mercury Retrograde is always more impactful on VIRGO and GEMINI no matter what sign Mercury Retrogrades in as that sign ruling planet. You need to heed this well. Use this time
TAKE this precious TIME out to chill and really give time to renew your mind, your love contracts conscious and unconscious. Maybe even change your love language,
Just remember to double and triple-check all information and communications while the Retrograde is on and back up your cell phone and computer as well.
