Mercury retrograde spring 2021 began on May 29 and will last until June 22. If you feel like your thoughts are muddled, your words are coming out incorrectly, and you have more unopened emails than you can count, you can absolutely blame it on astrology. All zodiac signs might anticipate confusion over these three and a half long weeks when it comes to the Mercury-ruled domains of timing, communication, travel, technology, and more. The zodiac signs most impacted by the spring 2021 Mercury retrograde, however, may wish to take additional retrograde safety measures as this transit may seem much more disorienting.
Mercury will be backspinning through its native Gemini during this retrograde cycle, and because it’s also the Gemini season of 2021, the impacts of the retrograde cycle might be enhanced. We should be more cautious about the things we say and the information we share with others since the fanciful Gemini energy places a greater focus on communication and information-sharing issues. Take your time while writing a clear and deliberate text or email or having a meaningful chat because typos or general misunderstandings will be far more probable than normal.
Depending on how the retrograde is interacting with the planets in each person’s astrological birth chart, each person will feel the influence in a different way. Buckle up if you belong to one of the zodiac signs that Mercury Retrograde will effect the most; this backspin might be rough.
Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21-April 19)
You’re not renowned for having a lot of patience, Aries, but this retrograde will undoubtedly test that. When it comes to communication, everyday interactions, and moving about, you’ll feel the Mercurial misunderstandings the most. However, slowing down will be the key to making sure you don’t get into any difficulty. Take additional time to make sure you’re making your point clearly because you could struggle with things sounding incorrect or messages being misunderstood. Currently, you run the risk of running behind schedule because of unforeseen traffic bottlenecks or technological difficulties that might make you tardy for nearly all of your scheduled meetings and appointments. Check all of your engagements’ times and dates three times, and allow additional time for travel to allow for unforeseen problems and delays.
Leo Zodiac Sign (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ll need to be particularly careful to avoid conflict in your social life, Leo, since this retrograde is conjunct the area of your chart that governs relationships, teamwork, and community. It will be simple to fall victim to misunderstandings with your team, and group initiatives at work may also experience confusion. Additionally, the action-oriented planet Mars will enter your sign in the middle of this retrograde, which may cause you to become even more impatient with the intensity of the retrograde. Your task is to fight the impulse to finalize elaborate plans for the summer with your pals or to engage in any significant professional networking. Take it gradually and have faith that by the end of June, things will pick up.
Virgo Zodiac Signs (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Don’t worry, dear Virgo, if things seem chaotic at work right now; Mercury retrograde is probably impacting the area of your chart that governs your job and public persona. As a result, you can find it difficult to advance on professional tasks or to adequately represent yourself at work. The planet of illusion and fantasy Neptune is presently creating a tight square aspect to Mercury, which also brings your relationship dynamics into the murky cloud of uncertainty impacting communication, scheduling, and logistics at work. This all adds up to a lot of confusion. Instead of starting new tasks, make use of this time to finish off previous ones. Also, get yourself organized so you’ll be ready to go when the retrograde is through.
Sagittarius Zodiac Signs (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Sagittarius, you’re experiencing a lot of confusion in your relationships as a result of the retrograde, and this may make you very unsure of what kind of commitment you want to make to a partner. Now, it’ll be simple for lines to get crossed in your one-on-one relationships, and as a result, you can feel distant from your S.O. or your closest friends. Make a deliberate effort to be open and clear with your relationships, and try to avoid inferring meaning from silence or assuming the best from others. There will be changes since eclipse season in 2021 coincides with Mercury retrograde and falls on the connection axis in your chart. However, you shouldn’t act hastily. It is preferable to retain an open mind and observe how events develop.
