Mercury RetrogradePeople go on about Mercury Retrograde meaning, definition and effects. But what exactly does Mercury in retrograde signify? Retrograde motion is said to occur when planets “seem to” move in a backward motion in their orbits around the sun. During such periods, people may face many conflicts and difficult situations in life. Find out about the current retrograde in 2017!


Mercury is a planet that is very important in astrology predictions. Mercury usually is said to be responsible for communication, transportation, travel, business, ventures, perception of information and dealings with people. When Mercury is in retrograde in a person’s birth horoscope, then the areas controlled by Mercury go into a period of slow and stagnant behavior. Delays and problems will become inevitable.


Mercury Retrogrades are thus considered to be good periods for planning, reflection and improving your communication skills. Reevaluate your stand in life. Spend more time in meditation, relaxation and searching for inner peace. You will be more perceptive and clairvoyant during these periods of Mercury retrograde motion.
