Backward Mercury is often seen as the moustache-twirling villain in silent films. Yes, the planet of thought and chat creates mischief during its three-week retrograde phase.
Letters, texts and emails vanish, travel delays increase, electronic items fail or crash, and so on. But it’s important to accept how helpful this tiny planet can be when it goes into reverse, too.
When you look in a mirror, who do you see? Sometimes, it’s not until we stop to take stock of who we are, what we’ve learned recently, and how we’ve changed that all of this becomes clear.
This planetary combination encourages you to look inward. It wants you to assess, layer upon layer, the beliefs that make you the person you are.
Life experiences and challenges have formed many of these. But do you cling to some that were appropriate previously but aren’t anymore? Did any belong to someone else but seemed to make sense to you at the time?
Here’s a chance to become reacquainted with yourself. It’s time to hit the pause button and remind yourself of who you are, what you’re capable of and deserve to achieve.
Because Venus is retrograde, you musn’t rush into a decision or make a sudden change. But you can set your life on a new trajectory by updating or upgrading what is most important to you now.
Retrograde Mercury always receives bad press. When it moves backward, we experience issues with technology. So, with Mercury reversing in Aquarius, the sign of technology, I strongly advise you to back up electronic data.
Keep the receipt for any gadget you must buy between now and when Mercury moves forward on February 3.
Aquarius is a forward-thinking sign. It likes to do things differently and embraces change. So, we’re likely to see new approaches adopted and perspectives formed on the global stage, possibly related to the pandemic.
But be prepared to return your focus to something you ignored or dismissed that needs to be revived and reassessed. This time, you’re likely to see it in a more appropriate and helpful light.
I wish you a successful, memorable week.
Until next week, take care, stay safe, and be happy.
