The Final Retrograde of 2021 is Coming to an End


The mercury retrograde is back, and everyone is talking about it! What is the mercury retrograde you may be wondering. The planet “Mercury” is responsible for communication in astrology. The retrograde started September 27, 2021 and is expected to end October 18, 2021. The retrograde occurs when the planet appears to be moving backwards (west to east). When mercury is in retrograde it causes our communication to get clouded and causes misunderstandings, and causes a “karmic ripple”. Meaning people who you haven't talked to in a while or fell off from may “magically” reappear. Even the toxic ex that you finally stopped talking to years ago.


Who will be affected?

Just to name a few..


If you are a Taurus, you may be having a hard time staying organized and you may be feeling a bit dysfunctional. Your normal schedule may seem out of reach, focus on tasks that can ultimately make you happy and think of long term effects when making decisions.


If you are a Leo you may be very confused, with too many thoughts in your head to stay focused, you may have a hard time trying to make sense of your thoughts right now, that makes it harder to express your feelings.


If you are a Gemini you may be focused on self-love right now. Or at least you should, you may be receiving attention or a spotlight overall however self-love is vital right now because by lacking it, it may result in a decrease in self-respect.


What not to do during the retrograde?

The retrograde is causing things to get WAY out of whack. So here's a few steps you can take to ensure you are not negatively affected by it.


  • Avoid signing any NEW contracts right now or making big purchases, especially automobiles

  • You may be experiencing a lot of traffic or traveling mishaps, So its suggested to avoid traveling during this time.

  • DON'T leave room for misunderstanding.

  • Ignore that toxic ex that just hit you up at 3am asking “wyd”

  • And most importantly AVOID SOCIAL MEDIA!

This is probably the most relevant suggestion considering Mark Zuckerberg’s recent conflict on October 5, 2021 Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were shut down due to routers that coordinate network traffic . The 3 apps were shut down for more than an hour and caused a frenzy all over the world. However the app was able to be recovered and is fully functional now.
