What is Mercury Retrograde? Without going into much astrological details, mercury retrograde means the planet Mercury is moving slower than Earth giving an illusion that it is moving in backward direction. It is the time when Mercury seems to be in opposite motions; though it is just an illusion and only for a short phase.
What does Mercury Retrograde do? According to some astrological experts, Mercury is known for the planet which influences Throat chakra and hence during mercury retrograde phase, the main thing to get affected is communication. People may see turbulences in certain areas such as communication issues, misunderstandings, technical issues, electronic gadget problems, travel issues, negotiation problem, buying-selling problem etc.
How to deal with it? We cannot stop living our life, we cannot avoid work-related or emergency travel or we cannot put our business on hold. Best thing to do is not to get obsessed thinking about it. Don’t be superstitious but just beware. Positivity attracts positivity.

Again, don’t be superstitious. Don’t keep thinking about it. I would never suggest dwelling into don’t do this or that. If you face a problem, ask Mercury what does it want you to realize? What you need to know or learn from this situation.
Mercury retrograde has positive sides too, it brings out stuck patterns, releases old memories and makes you realize the things you are unaware of. It is called 3-REs of mercury retrograde- REmember-REalize-RElease. Take advantage of this phase by letting go off stuck issues, welcoming old memories or old friends and realize and accept the lessons life brings.
