Mercury is Retrograde in Gemini through July 1. Mercury in Gemini is usually a prime location for the planet, since it’s it ruler. Mercury in Gemini adds an extra spark to the already outgoing, talkative, creative, and on the move constellation. However, the retrograde, or backward movement, of Mercury slows things down a bit and can create confusion, oversights, and all kinds of hiccups, especially related to travel and communication. You may be feeling a little staggered and slow moving right now. Your creative juices maybe flowing but you can’t quite get to the implementation phase. You are probably feeling a little less social and are preferring the company of your close circle. You could feel like you have something to say but can’t get the words right. All of these things are the influence of Mercury Retrograde in Gemini. Hold off on big plans, signing contracts, or having important discussions until the planet goes direct (forward) on July 1. After that time, you will begin to feel the air clear and will feel better about moving forward with plans and being social for the summer. Until then, take advantage of the Retrograde in Gemini with low-key fun with family and close friends, take time to research and finalize your ideas, or take a quick, stress-free getaway where you can rejuvenate. Wait for Mercury to turn direct to implement ideas and projects or start something big.
