On January 30th, Mercury, the planet of: the mind, communication and contracts, turns retrograde at 26 degrees of Aquarius till February 21st. Get ready for some wild and wacky twists of fate to occur. Aquarius, the 11th zodiac sign is known to be: inventive, detached, the brainiac, the inventor and the mad scientist.
Mercury retrograde in the air sign of Aquarius is here to bring the past back in unique and inventive ways. Being that Aquarius as a sign rules the future, we might feel like we are stuck in some funky time warp. Brilliant ideas connected to humanity and independence is what this next Mercury retrograde period is all about. When the planet of the mind goes backwards so do our: plans, projects and electronics. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be extra patient and to slow down a bit. This might prove to be extremely difficult as Aquarius’s ruling planet is Uranus, the planet of: invention, genius and shocks.
A bolt of electrical magic will be running through our souls at this time. Gittery sensations of brilliance will come to the surface to be examined and honored. Many could feel rather nervous and on edge. Uranus also rules electricity and electronics so our devices could also be going a little wack-a-doodle during this time. Be careful around anything with an electrical current, as there will be an unstabling and erratic energy in the air.
This is a great time to go back and reflect, revise and redirect our attention to the past. This could involve going back to a project or dream that once was dormant and reigniting your passion and excitement for it. An air of detachment and heighted cerebral genius could come out of the blue to greet you.
Due to the high electrical current waves that Aquarius energy is known for, it will be imperative to ground yourself a lot during this time. It could feel like you are wired up and ready to bust. Incorporating the other 3 elements of: fire, water and earth will be important, as mentioned in my full moon article. Expect wacky and wild communication, perhaps from friends or lovers from the past. With Aquarius energy, you never know. Shocking. Unexpected. Surprising. Untamed. It surely won’t be a boring time but remembering to slow down and stay focused, despite the marathon mental loops of information, will again be extremely important.
Mercury retrograde in Aquarius is here to bring some unusual and unique times ahead. Just when you thought you had heard or seen everything, the planet of the mind retrograde in the sign of surprises is here to wow you once more. Aquarius energy which is super detached and very intellectual will allow our minds to go places that once were only a dream. Extraordinary discoveries that once were only within our imagination could be re-created during this phase.
Extra caution around devices is again extremely important. We will be all charged up and bouncing around from here to there with this energy. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius wants you to remember your sovereignty but also your unique contribution to the collective. We are all one. You are me and I am you. This next Mercury retrograde cycle is here to bring forth: past reflections in order to create an inspiring future, past dreams back to the surface to be reinvented, and the willpower to recognize our unique and brilliant voice within the world. © Astromomma, 2021 source: http://www.astromomma.com
