Okay, everyone. It’s time to get ready for the second Mercury retrograde transit of 2022. This Mercury retrograde from May 10th to June 3rd is looking to be an interesting one because it is in the sign of Gemini. Gemini’s natural planetary ruler is Mercury which will heighten communication issues during this retrograde. In many ways, because Mercury is going retrograde in Gemini, we may be reconsidering thoughts, communication, and information instead of taking action at this time. Continue to read on to learn more about the reversals in communication that are likely to occur under this Mercury retrograde in the sign of Gemini.
When Mercury Goes Retro in Gemini
When Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Gemini, one of the most loquacious, mental signs of the zodiac, we can expect heightened issues related to communication. Retrograde energy requires adopting an inward approach for deeper understanding. When planets are moving direct, the energy is focused on the external environment. When the planets appear retrograde, the planetary energy takes on an internal expression. In the case of Mercury retrograde, this results in re-accessing communication. This can show up in a variety of ways from choosing not to speak, deciding not to send that email, and/or questioning incoming information. We may find that under this energy, it is best to reconsider as opposed to moving forward.Read More »
Miscommunications are Likely
Have you ever felt frustrated because someone wasn’t hearing you clearly? Have you ever wished that you or someone else would communicate better? Well, this is the experience of Mercury retrograde, and this feeling will be heightened since Gemini, the sign of the communicator and messenger, is involved.
In general, Gemini is known for being very communicative and never one to shy away from connecting with others. However, with this retrograde energy, we may find that we and others are likely to drop the bag when it comes to getting messages across. Perhaps the wrong things are said. Perhaps we misinterpret what is said. Perhaps we intend to send an email, make a phone call, or send a text, but for some reason, the message just doesn’t go through. Miscommunications and delays in receiving and sending messages, letters, and even packages are likely. Just a heads up.
So, for the next three weeks, until June 3rd, review any and all messages before sending them out. If you want to mail something, get insurance and/or tracking to be on the safe side. Think before you speak. Reconsider whether you really need to press send on that email or text message. Consider carefully before you respond to those direct messages. This also includes the space that is social media. There will be lots of communication, but everything that is said, typed, and presented is not always the truth. We’ll all have to sort through information with a fine-toothed comb during Mercury retrograde in Gemini.
Contracts are a No-Go For Now
When it comes to contracts right now over the next three weeks while Mercury is moving retrograde in Gemini, it’s best to just avoid them altogether. All types of contractual agreements require a clear understanding of terms and agreements, and this retrograde energy in the sign of Gemini nonetheless, doesn’t present well for clear, forward communication and information.
With contractual agreements, certain information may not be fully disclosed. Mercury retrograde in Gemini creates an energy of uncertainty when it comes to solidifying details. If possible, avoid signing off on any contracts unless you really need to. If you don’t understand a certain aspect of a contract, it is better to hold off than sign and end up with regrets.
If there’s a case where you do have to sign off on a contract during the Mercury retrograde in Gemini, just be aware that there may be some reversals or changes related to the contract. This includes anything from rental agreements, mortgages, accepting employment offers, and even getting married. Yes, marriage is ruled by a contract as it is a legal agreement between two people. Again, if you cannot delay the signing until Mercury goes direct on June 3rd, just be aware that there could be some changes related to the terms and conditions of the contract once Mercury goes direct.
Words Coming Back to You
The general experience of Gemini is one of collecting and sharing information. At its worst, Gemini can be so loquacious that its communication degenerates into gossip. With the energy of Mercury retrograde in Gemini, fair warning, the misinformation and/or gossip put out could come back to you.
Over the next three weeks sharing inaccurate information could prove to be detrimental. There’s nothing wrong with having general conversations. However, when conversations begin to fall into gossip, it would be best to steer clear…especially with Mercury being retrograde in Gemini.
This transit of Mercury retrograde in Gemini could present a situation where the words spoken and information shared may come back to us. Perhaps information was shared that should not have been. Perhaps information was supposed to be confidential but was shared nevertheless. Keep to the safe side and avoid talking unnecessarily about others. Avoid sharing information and details about other people.
Make Space for Reconsideration
Despite all of the communication issues associated with Mercury retrograde in Gemini, this energy is “workable.” Adjustments have to be made about how we receive and give out information and how we communicate. Considerations about how we create a perspective through words are also important. Reconsider communication under this energy. Look carefully at the word reconsider. It starts with the prefix re-…to do over. Under this Mercury retrograde in Gemini, think of “do-overs” when it comes to communication and information.
Also, this is a good time to question the information that we receive. Just because we obtain information does not always mean it is fact. Don’t be so quick to believe what you hear, and don’t be so quick to share what hear. This Mercury retrograde could present information that is not what it appears to be.
Overall, the Mercury retrograde in Gemini offers us the chance to re-analyze how we gain and use information and how we communicate with ourselves and others. Take your time with communicating, don’t believe everything that you hear, and avoid gossip at all costs
