Do you feel confused, and your mind is working slower than usual? Yes, it’s that time of the year again.
Mercury started retrograding on September 9, and it ends on October 2. But remember, the retrograde season does not mean it is the end of the world or that you will have back luck for a whole month. It’s a cosmic invitation to slow down and see what needs to change in your life. Keep reading to find out what to expect from this retrograde season!

Things to be aware of this retrograde season

1. Things go slower than usual

Have you been feeling stuck? That may be because mercury is not alone. You should know that currently, six planets are retrograding, and you may feel like you are not going forward. If that’s the case, don’t worry. It’s normal. However, that does not mean you shouldn’t do something about it. Instead of blaming the retrograde season, try to flow with it. Make the most of the available cosmic energy by doing some introspection. Try to understand what needs to change in your life to become a better person.

2. People or events from the past may appear once again

Yes, that is also completely normal during retrograde seasons. If you didn’t learn the lesson before, you should do it now. So, it is time to restructure your life and see what didn’t work before. The Virgo energy causes us to analyze and organize. Try to use it in your favor instead of overthinking or being a perfectionist.

3. There may be problems

Mercury is the planet of travel, communication, technology, and intellect. When it goes retrograde, your mind may be slower than usual. There may be miscommunications or problems with technology. But don’t worry, it is not the end of the world. After all, mercury goes retrograde three times per year. You have been living with it your whole life. You only need to be careful. Many astrologers recommend not making life-altering decisions like starting a relationship, marrying, buying a house, or signing contracts. Some people also say you should not travel during mercury retrograde. Okay, you may miss your flight, but that is only because our minds are fuzzy. You only need to be cautious, and that’s it. 

The healing lessons of this season 

As with all retrograde seasons, now it’s time for self-reflection. Ask yourself: What have you been doing these past months? Are your actions taking you to where you want to be? How are your thoughts and feelings influencing your behavior? This time, the retrograde season begins in Libra, the sign of romance and relationships, but also the one that represents balance and the law. What does that mean? If you have relationship trauma, it may be a difficult time. But don’t worry, the universe wants us to heal and learn, and everything has a purpose. So, sit down and meditate on what is happening in your life. What do you need to learn from that? What do you need to let go of? The comic energy of this season allows us to learn what we need to learn about relationships. We will heal if we pay attention to what the universe tells us. 


Are you having a difficult time with relationships? Are you feeling overwhelmed because of the retrograde season? Relax. Everything happens for a reason. The retrograde season feels incredibly slow. You may feel frustrated and want to force things to happen. Don’t rush. Take the time you need to restructure your life. After all, that is what retrograde season is all about!
