Mercury Retrograde, What It Means For Your Relationships

Spring is the time of year when nature boldly reveals a new blossom, likewise encouraging new growth in us. Yet Mercury goes retrograde from March 30 thru April 23, 2011 so before we step into full blown spring we need to step back and mentally review where we've been & where we're headed. This applies to the area of life Mercury transits in our birth chart. Generally, Mercury will affect our relationships in specific ways. 

Dating New People. Mercury retrograde is classically not a great time to start new relationships, but explore the people you know, or those from the past. Make no new decisions is a good rule of thumb, and starting a relationship is a decision. 

Reconnections & Break Ups. Past love affairs can be rekindled during Mercury retrograde. Will it work out? That depends on the two people involved. Lovers who have been apart can come together again -they may see old problems in a new way during this period and come back together, ready to reconcile. However when two people who have been together unexpectedly break up during retrograde, they're likely to get back together again once Mercury moves direct. 

Want to know the secrets to soulful love? I reveal those in my book, A Love Alchemist's Notebook: Magical Secrets for Drawing True Love into Your Life.

Somewhere Between In Love and Just Not Sure. Mercury charges in-between states-- we may be in-between love and like, not sure whether we want to be in or out of a relationship, in between decisions or two people. During this time, we just may not be sure. So here's my advice: Get comfortable with your confusion! Confusion is divine for Mercury because it's during those times we are most uncertain that we're more open to new input, ideas and people.

Get Clearer on Your Communication. If communication has been an issue, now's the time to address what's been unsaid, or said wrongly. Try and be sensitive to the fact that during Mercury retrograde, gadgets like cell phones and email don't work as well-- so instead of jumping to conclusions about why they're not communicating, persist in figuring out what the block is. Instead of making it into a big misunderstanding, consider you may simply not have all the facts.

Mercury retrograde may not be a great time for starting new things, but it's most excellent for experimenting, researching & exploring. One astro-magical suggestion is to look around: to notice the people you're surrounding your self with. Ask who it is you're having fun with. Those are the people to hang with.
