It’s that time of year again! That’s right, Mercury is retrograding starting April 28th and ending on May 22nd. Keep in mind, the shadow period is from April 14th to June 7th so you might already be feeling its effects. There will be a total of four periods that Mercury will be retrograding this year and they will mainly occur in the Earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo). This current position of Mercury will fall within the sign of Taurus. With Taurus being ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you will notice this Mercury retrograde will focus on all things love and relationships. Should I rekindle the relationship with an old friend? Or perhaps an old flame? These are questions that might surface as you’re reflecting on things of the past during this transit. If your sun, moon, or ascendant sign is in Taurus then you’ll likely feel the effects of this Mercury retrograde much more than others. Yikes! Don’t worry you’re not alone, Taurus ascendant here.
