Mercury Retrogrades Back into Gemini: Logic Versus Feeling

Tune in to all the levels of your multi-dimensional self as Mercury slides back into his home sign of Gemini.

Mercury is the ever-in-motion god of in-between places. His 88-day orbit around the Sun is one wild ride -- changing speed and direction, whipping through zodiac signs, racing from morning to evening and back again.

Like Mercury, our minds are constantly in motion. We continually perceive reality on many levels -- the words in our heads, our sense perceptions and our emotions. Mercury's job is to weave together all of these perceptions into a holistic vision, like the editor who stiches together the visual, audio and music tracks of a film.

Mercury usually spends about three weeks in each sign. However, during his retrograde periods he can spend twice as long in a sign, or even revisit signs he's just traveled though.

This month, the divine messenger dances between airy Gemini and watery Cancer, and we get a chance to re-examine how we integrate our intellectual and emotional perceptions. Fortunately, Mercury in Gemini is especially comfortable living in the paradox of experiencing multiple levels simultaneously.

In the workplace, as Mercury retrogrades in Gemini from June 17 to June 30, take some time to ask if your vision aligns with your values and passion. If the answer is no … make a course correction! (If you run a department or company, and you aren't checking in with staff on how things are going each time Mercury retrogrades, you're missing a huge celestial opportunity!)

For your finances, it's time to check in and see if your purchases reflect what's important to you (and cancel things like gym memberships if you aren't using them!) If you've got a financial advisor, it may be time for a quick checkup to see if rebalancing is in order (though you may want to wait to implement your plan until later in July once Jupiter changes signs.)

Mercury retrogrades aren't the best times to sign contracts; things begun while the messenger is on vacation may be delayed in implementation. Days around the Mercury stations (June 7 and June 30) can also be prone to confusions in travel, communications and technology, so give yourself extra time to get your tasks accomplished in these areas.

Want to watch Mercury's motion day by day? Here's a quick summary of this Mercurial two-step for your calendar.

-- 21 days in Gemini, from May 7 to May 28

-- 19 days in Cancer, from May 29 to June 16. In the predawn hours of June 7, Mercury slows to a standstill, and then turns retrograde.

-- 25 days Gemini, from June 17 to July 12. At sunrise on July 1, Mercury ends his retrograde.

-- 18 days Cancer, from June 13 to July 31
