Mercury is home in Gemini and when it goes Retrograde, its effects are all the more powerful. We may have to leave something behind, or perhaps choose a separate path from where we were traveling before. This might be a painful time for many, especially for mutable signs, as it signals a time of great release. Whatever is being called to be left behind, will surely be missed, but we will find the inspiration when the Sun moves to Gemini, to shift our perspective towards the future and what new adventures await.
Mercury will soon be in conjunction with the Sun, but only for a few short days before Taurus takes the reins of this Retrograde, and in that case, the focus moves onto the fixed signs and enables those qualities of moving forward with a more stable and even motion. So be mindful with how you channel this energy while Mercury is in Gemini, as it events may occur suddenly, and so aligning with the solution or than dragging out the problem will be the theme it attaches to when it moves into Taurus.
